How To Get the Perks of a Facelift Without Surgery

How To Get the Perks of a Facelift Without Surgery

Facelifts are consistently one of the top five cosmetic surgeries in the United States. The popular procedure lifts sagging skin and erases wrinkles, but the fact remains: it’s an invasive surgery that requires an uncomfortable recovery period.

The good news? You have other options to achieve a more youthful complexion. Heather Auld, MD, and our team at SWFL Integrative Medicine in Fort Myers, Florida specialize in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, so you can get all the perks of a facelift without the pain.

Here’s how it works.

The elements of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation

Your skin naturally changes over the years. When you’re young, collagen and elastin give your skin structure and bounce, but these proteins start to disappear with age. Less collagen and elastin make your skin delicate and saggy, forming lines and wrinkles.

Our facial rejuvenation services bring you the best in aesthetics, without the pain or downtime of cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic injectables

An estimated 10 million Americans get cosmetic injections each year. Cosmetic injectables include both dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injections, which can be combined to create a “liquid facelift” effect without surgery.

Dr. Auld recommends Restylane® fillers to plump sagging skin and fill in fine lines across your face. Dysport® botulinum toxin injections tackle tough, deep-set wrinkles formed by facial expressions around your eyes and forehead.

Phototherapy

Phototherapy is a 100% noninvasive facial treatment that uses infrared light to stimulate healthy skin cell growth. It boosts your skin’s natural collagen production to improve both skin tone and texture, and it can enhance the results of your liquid facelift. Professional grade LED therapy is painless and effective alone or with other modalities.

Radiofrequency 

Radiofrequency treatments on the face and neck stimulate the formation of skin tightening collagen and elastin. It feels luxurious like a relaxing hot stone treatment. 

MORPHEUS 8

Rave reviews about the combination of microneedling plus radiofrequency puts the Morpheus 8 in its own class. This is the gold standard in non surgical facial rejuvenation. It delivers a far deeper treatment than traditional microneedling techniques . There is little to no down time and it is safe for all skin pigments.

Medical-grade skincare

Along with aesthetic treatments, we offer medical-grade ZO skin care products in our office. These products are formulated to prevent and delay signs of aging, and they work in tandem with your facial rejuvenation treatment plan to help you maintain your results.

Your facial rejuvenation treatment plan

Your skin care needs are unique. At SWFL Integrative Medicine, we take an individual approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

Just like traditional facelifts, your treatment plan is completely customizable. But unlike traditional facelifts, you don’t have to experience the discomfort of cosmetic surgery to achieve a more youthful look.

Dr. Auld and our team begin with a consultation. We examine your skin, discuss your treatment goals, and then work with you to create a holistic treatment plan. Since all our facial services are nonsurgical, we can combine them to tackle tough signs of aging.

Many of our patients choose both cosmetic injections and phototherapy to achieve younger-looking skin without ever going under the knife. Obagi skin care products help you maintain your new look over time.

We’re here for you when your skin care needs evolve, too. Cosmetic injectables last from three months to over a year, and we offer touch-ups to keep your skin plump and wrinkle-free. Ask about our rewards program and discounts for repeat customers.
