Facelift surgery is an effective and convenient way to reduce signs of aging and rejuvenate your skin, but surgery isn’t always the right choice for everyone. For those who are uncomfortable with the notion of going under the knife, there is another option: non-surgical facelift treatment in Toronto. To learn more about non-surgical facelift treatment, the cost, and how it works, read through our facelift FAQ.
How do I know if I need a non-surgical facelift?
Most non-surgical facelift candidates are adults that are 40 and older. However, anyone who is exhibiting early signs of aging such as skin sagging, as well as wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and lower face is also eligible to get a non-surgical facelift. Weak jawline definition, sagging neck tissues, and muscle banding around the neck area also signify that you may need a non-surgical facelift.
Non-surgical facelifts are a quick, convenient, and non-invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. If you’re not too keen on going under the knife, but still want a youthful and fresh appearance, then a non-surgical facelift is a great option for you.
What types of procedures are available?
Non-surgical facelifts are typically paired with a number of other minimally or non-invasive cosmetic procedures including injectable dermal fillers such as Botox and Dysport to maximize the results. Depending on your specific cosmetic needs, you can also bundle several procedures into one treatment package. Additional cosmetic treatment options can include lip fillers, acne treatment, age spot removal, PRP, and more.
At the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic, we specialize in Infini Skin Rejuvenation. This is a highly effective minimally invasive non-surgical facelift procedure that uses microneedling to deliver thermal energy deep into the dermis to stimulate damaged skin cells so that they can heal themselves from within. During the healing process, the body increases production of collagen and elastin, which results in firmer, smoother, and tighter skin.
What is the downtime after a non-surgical facelift?
Traditional surgical facelifts require a downtime and recovery period of approximately 7-10 days depending on how fast your skin can repair itself. Non-surgical facelifts, on the other hand, only require about two to three days at most. During this time, you may experience a little bit of redness, puffiness, or minor bruising. These symptoms should subside within a day or two. It’s also recommended that you refrain from engaging in physically strenuous activities for at least 24 hours following the procedure. Other than that, you should be able to resume your regular routine such as going back to work immediately.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift?
If you’re noticing early signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, sagging skin, or marionette lines on the lower half of your face, then you could be an excellent candidate for a non-surgical facelift. Surgery isn’t for everyone. It requires a much longer recovery period and there are a lot of potential complications. Non-surgical facelifts are a great option for anyone who wants to rejuvenate their skin, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and recover quickly.
How many treatment sessions will I need to get the results I want?
Non-surgical facelift treatments like Infini Skin Rejuvenation can require several sessions before you start to notice results. Unlike surgical facelifts, the results aren’t always immediately noticeable as it takes some time for the body to heal the micro damage caused by the microneedling procedure. Sessions can last anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours depending on the amount of work that’s required. Since this is a temporary solution to repair common age-related skin problems, ongoing treatment is required to maintain the results.
How long do non-surgical facelift sessions and results last?
Non-surgical facelifts are a temporary fix to improve the youthful and fresh wrinkle-free appearance of your skin. The results can last anywhere between one to two years. Practicing a proper daily skincare routine at home can help prolong the results of healthy looking, glowing, and youthful skin. You can also combine other age-defying skincare treatments such as dermal fillers, age spot removal, skin tag removal, and acne treatment with the non-surgical facelift to maximize your results.
Are non-surgical facelifts safe?
Yes, non-surgical facelifts are completely safe. At the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you’re completely comfortable before commencing each treatment session. Infini Skin Rejuvenation incorporates the use of thermal energy (heat) and some pressure from the microneedling procedure. To minimize discomfort and eliminate pain, our technicians will numb the treatment area using a topical numbing agent, so you won’t feel anything other than slight pressure during the procedure. Our professional technicians will also communicate with you throughout every step of the procedure, so you always know what’s going on at all times.
How much does a non-surgical facelift in Toronto cost?
The cost of a skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatment in Toronto depends on which package you choose and how many sessions you need. Three sessions cost $2,700 plus taxes. Additional treatments will cost extra. During your initial consultation, our technicians will carefully examine the appearance and quality of your skin to determine which treatments can help you get the best results. We can make recommendations based on your desired results, treatment goals, and budget.
What are the risks and complications of a non-surgical facelift?
As is the case of any medical or cosmetic treatment, there is always a risk of experiencing some minor side effects such as swelling, infection, scarring, numbness, bruising, and soreness. Some patients typically experience these side effects during the recovery period, but they usually subside after a day or two. Please note that the persistence of serious side effects following a non-surgical facelift is extremely rare and we take every precaution to prevent discomfort and pain for our clients. Our technicians will discuss potential side effects with you during your consultation at which point you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the procedure.
