Facial Rejuvenation or Facelift: Which Is Best for You?

beautiful young womanIf you’re experiencing signs of aging, you have several surgical and nonsurgical options for looking younger, but which one is right for you? While facelifts remain one of the most commonly known ways to look younger, a wide range of noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatments can also provide men and women with excellent results. Is there one choice that’s better?

Facial Rejuvenation without Surgery

Facial rejuvenation comes in many forms:

  • Regularly scheduled facials and chemicals peels can help maintain a healthy glow and may be enough for many patients.
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is becoming increasingly common among relatively young men and women for preventing fine lines and wrinkles, and erases existing fine lines in my older patients.
  • Injectable fillers can fill deep wrinkles as well as restoring lost fullness in the lips, cheeks, brow and chin.

Is It Time for a Facelift?

For men and women who notice more significantly drooping skin around the cheeks, chin, jowls and neck, as well as a loss of volume in the cheeks, a facelift offers a more comprehensive solution. By gently lifting and tightening your facial tissue before smoothing the skin over improved contours, a facelift can take years off of your face for long-term benefits.

Ultimately, the choice between facial rejuvenation or a facelift relies on your personal appearance concerns and issues you’d like addressed. An experienced facial rejuvenation surgeon can develop a customized treatment plan that focuses on nonsurgical treatments, facial cosmetic surgery or a combination of both for the best results.
