Our face and neck regions are exposed to drooping and deflation due to aging, gravity, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices. This results in a less than appealing appearance that can impact your self-image and decrease your self-confidence. Plastic surgery provides the answer – primarily in the form of facelift surgery. But some patients are looking to achieve a youthful and desirable facial appearance but without the downtime and risks of surgery. If you fall into this category, a nonsurgical facelift is the ‘ultimate’ answer. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure aims to achieve a rejuvenated and awakened facial appearance using FDA approved neurotoxins and dermal fillers.
Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Balinger offers nonsurgical facelift procedures to patients in Houston, Conroe, and surrounding Texas communities. The surgeon understands that your best self is connected to your self-confidence. Working with a team of experienced clinicians, Dr. Christopher goes out of his way to make sure that each patient is comfortable, safe, and happy with their procedure outcome. He uses state of the art equipment and advanced methods to achieve the best result while minimizing the risk of side effects.
Candidates for a Non-surgical Facelift?
Nonsurgical facelifts entail a number of procedures such as injections, laser treatments, and fillers that do not involve a scalpel. The goal of this cosmetic treatment is to address cosmetic concerns on the face and neck regions. You may be a good candidate for this plastic surgery treatment if:
- You are in good physical and emotional health
- You are following a good skin care regimen but still notice adverse characteristics such as volume loss, uneven skin tone, and wrinkling
- You have good skin elasticity
- You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this procedure
Nonsurgical Facelift Options
There are several different types of nonsurgical facelift treatments that can be used to suit the needs of different patients.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Your Initial Facelift Consultation
During your first Houston TX non surgical facelift consultation, Dr. Balinger will ask questions to learn more about your treatment desires. The surgeon will also examine your problem areas and skin laxity before moving forward to the next step. Based on the findings of this initial visit, treatment may be administered on the same day or at a future scheduled date.
The precise treatment technique will be influenced by the needs of the patient and the goals of the surgery. Dr. Balinger typically uses dermal fillers to restore lost volume, augment your cheekbones, and lift your facial skin to achieve a smoother and more contoured appearance. Extra volume may be added to the upper cheek area may also help fill out your lower eyelids and eliminate a tired, hollow look. Adding injectable filler to the jawline may be used to disguise modest jowls or restore an attractive, crisp jaw edge. The surgeon may use either BOTOX or Dysport to raise your brow, erase crow’s feet, and smooth forehead wrinkles. Nonsurgical facelift procedures are typically performed using a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) or using a local anesthetic. Non surgical facelifts usually takes less than one hour to complete.
Plan your Procedure in Houston Texas
The cost of non surgical facelifts in Houston TX can vary significantly from one patient to the other, based on the treatment approach used. During your consultation visit with Dr. Balinger, the surgeon will provide a cost estimate based on a personalized treatment plan developed for you. Health insurers typically do not cover the cost of facelift plastic surgery because it is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure. However, the surgeon offers financing options for his patients in Houston, Conroe, and surrounding TX areas.
