Your Facial Skin Can Be Lifted and Tightened Without Surgery

By: Dr. Leah Waage


There’s no denying the stunning transformations that can be achieved with facelift surgery, but that’s certainly not the only option for restoring a more youthful look. For men and women who may not be ready, willing, or able to undergo invasive plastic surgery, a nonsurgical facelift can be a fantastic alternative. Board-certified family doctor and aesthetic specialist Dr. Leah Waage and the knowledgeable team at Lazerdoc in Leavenworth, KS discuss how a nonsurgical facelift works, what results are possible with treatment, and how long they may last.

I’m not ready for a facelift

If you are starting to notice lines, wrinkles, and droopy skin on your face but don’t feel quite ready for a full-blown facelift, you may be a candidate for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Following a thorough consultation at Lazerdoc, Dr. Waage will create a customized nonsurgical facelift treatment plan to address your specific concerns and help you achieve your desired outcome without the need for cosmetic surgery or an extended recovery period. Common concerns that can be addressed with a nonsurgical facelift include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Drooping jowls
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Circles under the eyes
  • Brow lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Thin lips

What is included in a nonsurgical facelift?

Each nonsurgical facelift is custom-tailored to meet the patient’s individual needs and goals. Depending on their specific concerns, Dr. Waage may recommend including one or more of the following treatments as part of a nonsurgical facelift:

  • PDO thread lifting
  • Injectable wrinkle relaxers (BOTOX® and XEOMIN®)
  • Injectable dermal fillers (RADIESSE®, RESTYLANE®, Jeuveau®, and others)
  • Laser skin treatments

A typical nonsurgical facelift is a layered procedure, starting with laser skin rejuvenation using the ClearLift™ system. PDO threads are then inserted to provide the main lift and contouring effect, and fillers are injected to add volume and enhance the effects of PDO threads. Finally, injectables are used to shape and contour, ensuring a smooth, balanced, and natural finish.

How long does a nonsurgical facelift last?

The results of a nonsurgical facelift will vary from person to person based on which treatments were performed, the degree of the patient’s facial aging, and other factors. One of the most popular and effective nonsurgical facelift rejuvenation techniques, PDO thread lifting, offers patients up to 1 – 2 years’ worth of results. This unique treatment involves inserting dissolvable threads beneath the patient’s skin to manually lift the skin while boosting collagen production. Other treatments, like cosmetic injections, typically require more frequent maintenance.

Is my skin too loose for a nonsurgical facelift?

Patients with mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity are typically considered good candidates for a nonsurgical facelift. Men and women with more advanced signs of facial aging – including loose, hanging skin or deep facial folds – may be better suited to our minimally invasive procedures, such as Morpheus8 RF microneedling and FaceTite. The best way to determine with certainty if a nonsurgical facelift may be appropriate and effective for you is to be evaluated by one of our experienced aesthetic experts during a one-on-one consultation.
