There are Nonsurgical Options for a Facelift
Do you want to have a youthful appearance without invasive surgery? You may want to consider a nonsurgical facelift at VIP Plastic Surgery. Our minimally invasive solutions can provide many of the same benefits as a surgical facelift but without long incisions or scars.
So, what treatments do we provide? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi can offer thread lift procedures and cosmetic injectables to provide smoother and virtually wrinkle-free skin in Las Vegas, NV. Learn how these popular options work below.
Do you have mild to moderate signs of aging?
You may have noticed that your skin has lost some elasticity and firmness over time. Wrinkles and creases are inevitable but can't always be treated with drugstore creams or lotions. On the other hand, you may not be ready for surgery. It can take weeks to recover from a traditional facelift, and there is always the risk of complications.
Fortunately, nonsurgical facelifts are perfect for addressing minor signs of aging that make you feel embarrassed or self-conscious.
How does a thread lift work?
Thread lifts use sutures made of biocompatible materials to raise sagging skin and smooth out wrinkles. These very thin threads are safe and often used to treat patients in other medical settings.
During treatment, Dr. Khorsandi carefully places the threads in optimal locations under the skin to provide the most support. Over time, your body breaks down and naturally absorbs these threads, leaving you with a lifted and smoother appearance.
Some benefits of getting a thread lift in Las Vegas, NV include:
Minimally invasive and safe
No general anesthesia or scars
Minimal downtime and quick recovery
Can be personalized to achieve the look you want
What about cosmetic injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are a great way to rejuvenate the face and reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases. Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® relax the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles to form, while dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM®and Restylane®, add volume to the skin and plump up sunken areas. Treatments are quick, easy, and often provide instant results.
Many of our patients combine wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers, also known as a liquid facelift. Dr. Khorsandi can help you decide whether one or both types of injectables will meet your needs during an anti-aging assessment. Through a liquid facelift, we can achieve the following goals:
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Fill out sunken areas under the eyes, around the nose, and in the cheeks
Plump up thin lips or create a more defined pout
Add volume to thin or sagging skin
When should I get facelift surgery?
The best time to get facelift surgery is when you're ready to address more severe signs of aging. It's more common in people who want a dramatic transformation, addressing deep wrinkles, sagging, and excess fatty deposits. Dr. Khorsandi will carefully examine your skin and underlying tissues to determine whether a traditional or nonsurgical facelift is best for you. Our goal is to help you look natural no matter what.
