We all know that we cannot stop the aging process. So, the question then becomes, what can be done to help slow down the aging process?

How does one get a facelift without actually going under the knife?
 
Non-surgical facelifts have become increasingly more popular now as patients are willing to forgo long-term results for an easier recovery process, avoiding the risks that are associated with a surgery plus saving thousands of dollars in the process. With science constantly advancing, below are 7 anti-aging, non-surgical facelifts that tighten your face without you having to go under the knife.

Botox – The number 1 procedure on this list and most popular in general is Botox. Botox is cosmetically used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Botox is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Now in layman’s terms, Botox is an injection used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles.

Fillers – Dermal fillers like Botox, help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, fillers are also used to restore volume and fullness in the face including the lip.

Laser Skin Resurfacing – Laser skin resurfacing removes skin layer by layer with laser precision. Laser skin resurfacing can help reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger-looking balanced surface. Laser skin resurfacing procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries. Unlike LED below, Laser Skin Resurfacing may be a bit more painful.

LED – Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy are painless, non-invasive procedures that use a variety of different colored lights (blue light kills acne-causing bacteria while red light is used to stimulate collagen production, at the same time, shrinking enlarged pores and tightening the skin). The LED procedure has no downtime, which is the draw; however, they require multiple treatments before you see any results.

Thermage – Thermage is a skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency to smooth fines lines, wrinkles and to tighten plus lift the skin of the face and body. Thermage treatments can be divided into 2 categories: skin tightening for the face, neck, or eyelids and body contouring on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.

Threadlift – The thread lift is not a very invasive procedure for the face, neck, or jaw in which threads. The small cones are passed under the skin via a large needle, then the cones grab hold of the skin from the under the surface and pull to re-suspend the skin in a lifted, more youthful position. Threadlift does call for local anesthesia and a downtime of 2-3 days. Previously the procedure had side effects that caused a lot of backlash. However, with recent technological advances, this can be the next Botox.

Ultherapy – Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, on the eyebrow plus improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Unlike a lot of the other procedures, Ultherapy is known to cause a lot of discomfort.
