Non-Surgical Facelift Q & A

What are some nonsurgical face-lift treatments?

If you’re looking for a noninvasive face-lift, our specialists at Annandale Skin & Anti Aging can offer a variety of injectables, including Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, that improve the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles without changing the look or movement range of your face.

Injectables like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA-approved injections that contain the neurotoxin made by the bacteria that cause botulism. When used in small, diluted amounts, this toxin blocks the nerve signals that cause your muscles to contract. When your muscles can’t contract, your wrinkles are reduced.*

What is the difference between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?

All three injectables that our team offers are made of very similar ingredients and the same toxin. However, because of differences in where they’re made and their manufacturing processes, some are priced differently from others.

What are the advantages of injectables?

Unlike a face-lift, which needs 2-3 weeks of recovery time, injectables reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without any downtime. After getting the procedure, you can get back to regular activities almost immediately. In fact, nonsurgical face-lifts are so quick and painless that our team can perform the procedure during your lunch hour, after which you can return to the office.

Our specialists at Annandale Skin & Anti Aging only recommends that you not lie down 3-4 hours after getting an injection so the liquid can settle in the correct areas.

Injectables are relatively painless. The worst pain you will feel is when the needle goes into your skin and the liquid is injected. If you are very sensitive to pain, our specialists can use an anesthetic, but since the needle is so small, this is rarely required. 

Are injectables the right option for you?

If you’re not ready to get major face-lift surgery, injectables are a great option to reverse signs of aging without the commitment to hospital time. It’s a great option for anyone looking to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles on their face. However, injectables might not be right for you if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding
  • Have a neurological disorder
