Before you commit to having a surgical facelift, learn about the innovative techniques for non-surgical facelifts that may provide the anti-aging benefits that you desire. Springs Aesthetics offers non-surgical facelifts for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, Pueblo, and other areas of Colorado.
What Are Non-Surgical Facelifts?
Non-surgical facelifts are minimally invasive treatments that lift and tighten the skin, similar to what is accomplished with traditional surgical facelifts. The treatments can help with sagging, wrinkles, unwanted fat in every part of the face. Dr. Burroughs also offers non-surgical facelifts for the jowls that can help with a heavy appearance that is caused by aging.
How Much Do Non-Surgical Facelifts Cost?
The cost of a Non-surgical facelift at Springs Aesthetics can vary. During your consultation, Dr. Burroughs can discuss the the various treatments available and help to choose the right treatment plan for you.
- FaceTite® uses a bidirectional radiofrequency technology that reduces fat cells and tightens the skin.
- The neck area often goes without treatment for aging because many people do not realize how much older crepe-paper skin, sagging and other issues contribute to an aged appearance. NeckTite® can help.
- J Plasma Skin Tightening
- J Plasma uses a unique combination of helium gas and radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and produce a younger appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Non-Surgical Facelifts?
If you have mild to moderate wrinkles, you most likely are a good candidate for our non-surgical facelifts. We invite you to schedule a consultation at Springs Aesthetics to learn more about these treatments and our other medical spa services.
How are Non-Surgical Facelifts Performed?
FaceTite®, NeckTite®, AccuTite®, Thread Lift and J Plasma skin tightening are minimally-invasive, meaning that the treatments only require the insertion of a thin probe into the skin. The treatment area will be numbed to help you feel comfortable. Pro-nox nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) can also improve your procedure comfort.
Do Non-Surgical Radiofrequency Facelifts Work?
Radiofrequency (RF) facelifts and other (RF) facial treatments can at times provide up to 50% improvement, but ranges on average 30-40%. J-Plasma uses a combination of helium and radiofrequency to develop a plasma that safely causes skin contraction and tightening.
Are Radio-frequency Facelifts Risky?
They typically carry very low risk. Very rarely, nerve injury can occur and should be temporary. Dr. Burroughs has encountered no nerve injuries from this procedure over the last 4 years that he has been performing them. They should be performed by a qualified, preferably aesthetically trained, physician. Full-thickness burns are very unlikely because of the built-in safety features. Over reduction in areas of the face can occur, which is why a facial surgeon is ideal to perform these procedures. J-Plasma can produce skin tightening without the benefit or risk of fat reduction.
What is Recovery Like After Non-Surgical Facelifts?
You may have a few days of downtime after your non-surgical facelift. Many patients feel tired and wish to rest at home. Other symptoms may include swelling, tenderness and bruising. Dr. Burroughs discusses these aspects of non-surgical facelifts during the consultation.
When Will I See Results from My Non-Surgical Facelift?
You may see some improvement immediately after to a few weeks after the procedure. Collagen production takes a few weeks, so we recommend you look for subtle and gradual changes in your appearance.
How Long Will Results of Non-Surgical Facelifts Last?
A traditional surgical facelift typically lasts roughly 7-10 years, and non-surgical facelifts will last less time but typically about 3-4 years. The goal is to delay the timing of any surgery that you may need for your aging needs, and the results can last for several years.
