Non-Surgical Facelift in Austin,TX
Facial aging affects your profile in many ways. The lessening of collagen production, combined with the natural loss or movement of bone, fatty tissue and muscle, causes your facial contours to change. Over time, skin laxity and volume loss can lead to a worn, tired overall appearance that lacks clarity and radiance. Wrinkles and fine lines, which develop as the skin loosens and starts to dry out, are some of the most common signs of facial aging. The aging process, gravity and years of facial expression and movement eventually cause these creases to deepen and become more noticeable. The effects of sun exposure also contribute to facial aging, as spots begin to emerge and redness becomes more prominent.
Though there are a variety of surgical procedures available for patients seeking to address these issues, they are not the only option. At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, Dr. Christine Fisher's hand-picked team of medical aesthetic experts offers a range of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments that serve to correct the signs of facial aging and restore a more youthful complexion. By combining a series of custom-selected procedures, the team at Austin Cosmetic Medspa can work with you to create a smoother, more youthful profile.
Non-Surgical Facelift Options
Since every patient’s needs are unique, each non-surgical facelift plan will be a customized combination of treatments. We offer a wide selection of dermal fillers, laser procedures and other skin rejuvenation therapies. Our aesthetic experts will design an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically to your facial anatomy, primary concerns and cosmetic goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are two brands of neurotoxins that are a highly effective wrinkle-relaxing treatments. In fact, they are the most popular anti-aging injectables available today. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. They are most commonly used to reduce the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and fine lines at the corner of the eyes, known as “crow’s feet.” BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® have helped men and women of various ages minimize facial creases and achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion.
With the range of fillers available at Austin Cosmetic Medspa, our injectable specialists can address a variety of aging concerns. Depending on how age has affected your face, our team can select the most suitable fillers to include in your non-surgical facelift procedure.
Juvéderm® Family of Fillers
Juvederm® dermal fillers are composed of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body. Juvederm® fillers restore volume and smooth away wrinkles from the inside out. These injectables come in various formulations that can be used to address a myriad of cosmetic concerns:
- Juvederm Ultra XC – A smooth filler used to plump the lips, restoring volume and enhancing definition to naturally thin lips or lips that have diminished over time.
- Juvederm Ultra Plus – A slightly thicker filler designed to reduce more prominent creases around the nose and mouth.
- Juvederm Volbella – A silky formulation used to enhance the lips while diminishing fine lines above the upper lip.
- Juvederm Vollure – A unique solution that works to soften moderate to severe facial lines and provide a more refreshed look.
- Juvederm Voluma – A volumizing formulation designed specifically for the treatment of larger facial areas, such as restoring volume and definition to the cheeks or re-contouring the jawline.
Restylane® Dermal Fillers
The dermal fillers in the Restylane® line are also made with hyaluronic acid (HA). They are designed to produce subtle, natural-looking improvements that last several months before a touch-up treatment is required. The Restylane® family of fillers includes:
- Restylane-L – A formulation that contains lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience and is used to reduce creases around the mouth, nose and chin.
- Restylane Lyft – A product designed to restore volume to the mid-face and add plumpness to the backs of the hands to reduce the appearance of prominent veins.
- Restylane Silk – A smooth, silky filler used to add subtle volume to the lips and correct vertical lines that feather up from the upper lip to the underside of the nose.
- Restylane Refyne – A formula that uses cross-linking technology to smoothen fine lines around the nose and mouth while preserving your natural facial expressions.
- Restylane Defyne – A product composed of innovative technology to address deeper lines and creases around the nose, mouth and chin.
An injectable filler composed of hyaluronic acid, Belotero® is designed to soften moderate to severe etched-in lines and creases. This product yields a soft, cohesive gel that integrates smoothly into the dermal tissue and allows for deeper penetration and more dramatic effects. The unique solution of Belotero® can help to revitalize your profile and restore a smoother, naturally refreshed complexion.
Sculptra® is an injectable filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and works to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. This product stimulates collagen growth to rebuild the structural tissue and remodel the surface skin through the body’s natural processes. As collagen production continues, Sculptra® serves to soften creases and boost facial contours for a more refined, radiant profile.
While dermal fillers can address textural issues, many patients combine these with laser treatments for a more holistic facial rejuvenation. Laser-based procedures are designed to stimulate collagen production, correct pigmentation irregularities and reduce the appearance of facial scars. They can help create a smoother skin texture and a more even overall skin tone.
- Halo – The world’s first hybrid fractional laser designed to evenly deposit collagen and address various facial concerns, including sun damage, enlarged pores, redness and uneven skin tone.
- Forever Young Broad Band Light – This laser treatment uses an advanced form of IPL to reduce the appearance of age spots, redness and discoloration.
- Contour TRL Peel – A precise and effective laser peel ideal for correcting lines, pigmentation irregularities and other signs of sun and environmental damage.

How Long Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Take?
A non-surgical facelift that involves injections of neuromodulators and dermal fillers can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Depending on your broader cosmetic needs, your provider may suggest subsequent appointments in which you can undergo other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as a chemical peel, microneedling, or other treatments that are designed to address concerns that injectables cannot.
What Results Can a Non-Surgical Facelift Achieve?
Our comprehensive approach to non-surgical facelift treatment can achieve authentically convincing rejuvenation. Depending on the various modalities included in your non-surgical facelift, you may see improvements in concerns such as crow's feet, forehead lines, frown lines, jawline laxity, dark spots, and more. A non-surgical facelift does have limitations in the amount of recontouring it can achieve. However, patients of all ages can experience a moderate to dramatic improvement in their facial aesthetics.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from a Non-Surgical Facelift?
There is no true recovery time after a non-surgical facelift. For the most part, normal activities may resume immediately after injectable treatments like dermal fillers and Botox. You will be instructed to avoid activities that increase your heart rate significantly, such as going for a run or sitting in a sauna, for 12 to 24 hours. You should also avoid lying down and touching or rubbing your face for at least four hours after your appointment.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The results of injectable treatments last from three months to two years. The results of our other skin rejuvenating treatments can last up to several years. Your provider will work with you personally to develop a rejuvenation program that meets your needs. This plan can include details regarding the ideal timing for touch-up treatments to maintain consistent results.
What Are the Risks Associated with a Non-Surgical Facelift?
One of the primary benefits of the non-surgical facelift is the relative lack of significant risks involved in the treatments performed. Injectables are much more conservative than surgical lift procedures. That said, it remains vitally important to receive injectables and other skin rejuvenation treatments from a skilled, licensed professional. Our team of medical aesthetic experts has been hand-picked by Dr. Fisher based on their clinical training and experience. They understand the risks involved in performing injectable treatments, including those related to accidental injection into vital structures. Their strong knowledge of facial anatomy in conjunction with careful techniques nearly eliminates this risk. Additional risks like infection, prolonged redness, and exaggerated bruising can be mitigated by following your post-treatment guidelines.
How Can I Maintain My Non-Surgical Facelift Results?
The best way to maintain the results of any skin rejuvenation treatment is to take great care of your skin. The daily use of broad-spectrum sunscreen is paramount to long-lasting results. UV exposure is one of the leading causes of collagen breakdown and premature aging. In addition to wearing sunscreen every day, also wear sunglasses to protect the delicate skin around your eyes and a wide-brimmed hat to shade your face and neck when you're out in the sun for more than a few minutes at a time. Your skincare regimen may also need to change over time. Whatever your age, your skin will benefit from the use of medical-grade skincare products used on a daily basis.
Can a Non-Surgical Facelift Replace a Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift combines a series of treatments that are personalized to your skin type and needs. For the right patients, this can produce smooth, naturally convincing and dramatic results. However, for patients requiring extensive correction of more severe signs of facial aging, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable treatment option. Facelift surgery focuses on lifting sagging tissue and enhancing contours on the lower portion of the face. It is ideal for those seeking to tighten and redefine their facial structure. Though this procedure requires more downtime, the results are long-lasting.
Depending on your age, stage of life and cosmetic needs, you may be a candidate for facelift surgery. However, if you are seeking to address mild to moderate concerns that do not warrant surgical treatment, or you simply don't want to undergo surgery, a non-surgical facelift may be a more suitable option. In your complimentary consultation at Austin Cosmetic Medspa, our specialists will examine your skin's condition to determine which procedure will be most effective for you.
