What is the Downtime After a Non-Invasive Facelift?
One of the most exciting benefits of a non-surgical facelift is that you’ll need minimal downtime to recover. We do recommend you plan to take it easy for a day or so, but there will be no major restrictions on your activities. You may want to take a few days off work in case you have notable swelling or redness, but these will go away after a week for most people. Since the types of non-surgical facelifts we perform are so customizable, different people will have different downtime. For example, Botox requires almost no downtime, while Kybella can result in a swollen chin for several days. Some people prefer to stay home until the swelling has subsided.
How Do I Know If I Am a Candidate For a Non-Surgical Facelift?
If you want some improvements in your face, but do not feel that you’re ready for our surgical Los Angeles facelift, a non-surgical option may be for you. Good candidates include people who are old enough to have some sagging or wrinkles, but not enough to warrant surgical treatment. Ideally the non-surgical facelift candidates we see in our Los Angeles offices are in good overall health and have realistic expectations of their results. Non-surgical facelifts are highly customizable, so they are good options for people with a wide range of goals. In general, most of our non-invasive facelift patients are in their 30s – 50s.
What is a Non-Surgical Facelift Recovery Like?
All types of our non-surgical Beverly Hill facelifts have a substantially quicker and easier recovery, as compared to a traditional surgical facelift. Many of our Beverly Hills patients say they just don’t have time for the recovery period associated with surgery, and these patients love the non-invasive facelift options we have. You can still get a smoother, younger, more toned facial appearance, even without surgical procedures or the more length recovery time that goes with them. You may hear some of our non-surgical facelift options being referred to as “lunchtime facelifts” in Los Angeles. This nickname is because of the very quick recovery most patients have. Generally the recovery time involves some redness or mild to moderate swelling, depending on the procedures performed. For many of these treatment options, you can continue your normal daily activities after your appointment. Some of our patients like to plan for a few days off work to make sure they have time to rest and for any swelling or bruising to subside.
How Much Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Cost?
Since there is no single combination of procedures we use in every non-surgical facelift, there is no set price. The more treatments you choose to have as part of your procedure, the higher the cost will be. Most patients spend about $2000 - $4000 on a non-surgical facelift.
Is a Non-Surgical Facelift Safe?
When done by a well trained and highly experience professional, our Los Angeles non-surgical facelifts are very safe. Each product we use is well-tested and proven to be safe and effective. Dr. Torkian and his team have substantial experience in every option we provide. There are times that a non-surgical facelift is not safe and can result in excessive swelling, loss of feeling in the face, asymmetry, and even nerve damage and destruction of facial tissue. These are the dangers of having these procedures performed by someone who is not well trained, even if they offer a lower cost. This is why it’s so important to ensure you are treated by true experts.
