You cannot stop time or aging, but you do have options to slow the effects on your face. There are a wide variety of non-surgical treatments that can slow the facial aging process. While the surgical facelift is considered the gold standard in aging facial procedures, not everyone needs surgery to look a few years younger. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer a non-surgical facelift to slow the aging process and keep you looking younger at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.
The face ages due to a combination of different factors. One of the biggest impacts is the change in the skin’s elasticity. As collagen and elastin levels in the skin drop, the skin loses its firmness. Wrinkles and lines form, and the skin and tissue can begin to sag. Fat under the skin can also diminish, reducing the volume under the skin. A surgical facelift removes excess skin and physically tightens the tissues on the face and upper neck. In the early stages of aging, there are non-surgical treatments that can tighten skin and restore a more youthful appearance.
Minimally-Invasive Facelift Treatments
For a non-surgical facelift, there are a variety of treatments that can be used, depending on your specific problem areas or desired effect. To tighten the skin, reduce lines/wrinkles and improve the youthfulness of the face in the early stages of aging, some minimally-invasive facelift procedures include:
- Skin tightening treatments
- Filler injections
Combining different treatments to tighten the skin and address lost volume can firm the neck and face and help you look more like you did five or more years ago.
