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

When you visit Dr. Balinger for your first non surgical facelift consultation in Houston Texas, the surgeon will listen to you and examine your problem areas and let you know whether this nonsurgical procedure is for you. Non surgical facelift is a highly individualized treatment. For this reason, Dr. Christopher recommends that you have this treatment out of your own choice, not because someone else wants you to.

Nonsurgical Facelift Options

There are several different types of nonsurgical facelift treatments that can be used to suit the needs of different patients.

Botolinum toxin

Also referred to as Botolinum toxin type A, this is one of the most common nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. This is a naturally occurring protein that can help treat facial imperfections such as wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and excessive sweating. Botolinum toxin injectables are available in the form of BOTOX, Xeomin, or Dysport.

Dermal fillers

These are FDA approved injectables that are created from a variety of natural or synthetic substances. This kind of nonsurgical cosmetic treatment may be used to plump up areas around your mouth, your lips, cheeks, or forehead. Some of the most common types of dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxylapatite.


This is a cosmetic treatment that uses a sander-like tool to remove the outer layer of skin, thus helping thicken collagen and give your skin a smoother and more youthful appearance. This non-surgical facial treatment may be used to address blackheads, age spots, dark patches of skin, acne scars, enlarged pores, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Plastic surgeons may use a laser to direct beams of energy to specific areas of your skin. This helps get rid of the outermost skin layer as well as heats the underlying layers in order to trigger the growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the new skin appears firmer and smoother. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to alleviate blemishes, small scars, warts, liver spots, sun spots, birthmarks, and uneven skin tone.

Chemical Peels

This is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that can enhance your skin tone. It utilizes a chemical solution to get rid of the damaged outer layer of skin. Chemical peels are typically used to improve the appearance of freckles, acne scars, age spots, sun-damaged areas, uneven skin pigmentation, or scaly patches.

Dr. Balinger is uniquely positioned to recommend the best type of nonsurgical facelift to reach your goals. The surgeon will discuss the suitability of each option and let you know what you can expect from the treatment.

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.

Procedure Technique

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.

Dr. Balinger customizes each non-surgical facelift to the patient, so the cost varies. We can let you know how much your non-surgical facelift will cost after your consultation. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.

What are the benefits of a Non-Surgical Facelift?

  • Little to no downtime
  • Recommended for men and women who are not good candidates for facelift surgery
  • No scarring
  • Helps with wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.

How is a Non-Surgical Facelift performed?

Dr. Balinger may recommend:

  • Invasix Fractora combines resurfacing and tightening to give your skin a healthy, youthful appearance. After the treatment, your skin has a radiant glow and small flaws are less obvious. You may need just one treatment or a series of treatments.
  • Kybella® is an injectable product that contains an enzyme that is clinicallyproven to destroy fat cells that cause a double chin. You will need a series of injections over the course of several weeks, and optimum results take up to 16 weeks. Kybella® is recommended for men and women who have good skin elasticity. If you have sagging skin, a neck lift may be a better option. If you have good skin elasticity and fat in other areas of the neck, Dr. Balinger may recommend liposuction.
  • Botox® is the most popular anti-aging injectable in the world. The treatment helps with crow’s feet, frown lines and other signs of aging in the upper third of the face.
  • Dermal fillers work by adding substances to your skin that bind with water or increase collagen production. Facial fillers can be used in the cheeks and lips, as well as around the nose and mouth.

What is recovery like after Non-Surgical Facelift?

Injectables and dermal fillers do not require any downtime. You may have some symptoms after the Invasix Fractora treatment, such as redness, tenderness and swelling.

How long will Non-Surgical Facelift results last?

Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells, so the results last for several years. Dermal fillers and Botox® last for several months or longer. Dr. Balinger explains what to expect from your Invasix Fractora treatments during the consultation.
