If you could have any cosmetic treatment you wanted, would you choose the more dramatic and longer-lasting surgical option or would you go surgery-free? If you’re anything like the rest of us, unless you have to go under the knife, your preference is not to. So it won’t be any surprise to hear about the latest innovation in the facelifting world: The “facial” facelift for non-surgical rejuvenation.
From the traditional surgical facelift to the completely surgery-free liquid facelift, the aesthetic world has seen considerable shift in treatments trends designed to turn back the clock. This evolution has been fueled on the one hand by our general desire for non-surgical solutions and on the other by research-generated knowledge of how the face ages. The result? Today the most innovative cosmetic doctors are offering a whole new approach to non-surgical anti-aging solutions with what’s being called the facial facelift.
A facial facelift is a treatment package that includes any variety of skin and tissue-toning treatments that work together to improve the tone, texture and contours of an aging face:
- Botox to soften muscle activity and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
- Fillers to restore lost volume, creating lift and smoothing out deeper wrinkles as well as offering contour to areas that have lost definition (cheeks, jawline, temples).
- Lasers to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, minimizing discolorations, evening out the tone and texture of the skin, boosting collagen.
- Chemical peels to clean the skin and refine pores.
- Microdermabrasion to minimize scaring and refine the appearance of the skin overall.
- Energy treatments (ultrasound, radio frequency) to lift tissues, tighten the skin and create a more youthful-looking face.
Alone each of these treatments can turn that frown upside down, but selectively combined together, they can inspire a full-on fresh face that you can’t wait to put forward!
While great minds can be credited for this new aesthetic approach, it’s also a credit to the high-tech tools they use. Advancements in technology, first with injectables and more recently with energy treatments, are key to delivering results, and are also the primary driver behind cost, which can range from $2500 to $5000, depending on actual treatments, region and practice.

Yes, a surgical facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) has years on most any non-surgical treatment, but if surgery isn’t in your plans, regular, “facial facelift” treatments work together to help you age gracefully. The cherry on top? They just may prevent any need for major surgical work down the road.
