Non-Surgical Facelift

Men and women seeking a smoother, more refreshed appearance may consider facelift surgery to enhance their facial presence. However, not all patients have to undergo a traditional facelift to achieve their cosmetic goals. Dr. Calabria has developed a groundbreaking, minimally invasive facelift that can be performed without necessitating general anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period. The non-surgical facelift is a three-step facial rejuvenation procedure that utilizes purified adult adipose-derived stem cells to correct volume depletion. These purified cells trigger the formation of new blood vessels and regenerative responses in the skin, both of which can contribute to a more youthful facial aesthetic.

What a Non-Surgical Facelift Can Provide

The non-surgical facelift utilizes patient-harvested tissue rather than synthetic materials to produce natural enhancement.
The use of stem cell-enriched fat stimulates the body’s regenerative responses so that it naturally rebuilds and restructures itself from within. Cell regeneration, along with improved collagen production, creates lasting effects.
Throughout the aging process, areas of the face can begin to experience a noticeable depletion of volume.
Facial volume loss contributes to a sunken appearance and can exacerbate textural imperfections. The non-surgical facelift plumps and revives recessed facial features, such as the cheeks, and helps create a smoother surface.
Not only can the non-surgical facelift restore the contours of the face, but it can also reverse some of the effects of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Stem cell-enriched fat revitalizes the structure of targeted tissues by promoting the production of collagen and hydrating rough skin. The result is a youthful and more attractive facial aesthetic.

Non-Surgical Facelift Process

Extraction

Local anesthesia is first administered to ensure patient comfort. Dr. Calabria then performs liposuction to harvest unwanted fat cells from problem areas of the body. Patients can enjoy the benefits of body contouring in addition to a newly rejuvenated and sculpted facial appearance.
The collected fat is broken down with an enzymatic process to remove impurities and excess fluid as well as extract the adult adipose-derived stem cells. These stem cells will help replenish and rebuild facial tissues by triggering cell regeneration and the production of new collagen.

Injection

Microcannulas are used to inject the stem cell-enriched fat into areas of the face that have experienced volume loss and textural imperfections. While some of the injected fat is metabolized over time, the remaining fat incorporates into the facial tissues, delivering long-lasting results.

Concerns

Recovery

The non-surgical facelift requires a much shorter recovery time than that of a traditional facelift due to the advanced and intricate techniques involved during the procedure. Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling around the area or areas being treated, but these side effects should resolve within two to three weeks. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions tailored to your unique procedure during your initial consultation with Dr. Calabria.

Scars

This procedure does not typically result in visible scarring. If any small scars develop at the liposuction incision sites, they should fade over time until they are inconspicuous.

Cost

The cost of a non-surgical facelift procedure depends on the desired extent of correction, surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and geographical location. A cost estimate will be calculated for you during your initial consultation.

Pain

Because the non-surgical facelift is minimally invasive, patients should not experience significant pain following treatment. However, Dr. Calabria will prescribe medication to alleviate any discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

The longevity of non-surgical facelift results can vary from patient to patient. However, the effects last longer than that of synthetic fillers, which require frequent touch-up appointments.
Patients will notice an immediate enhancement in facial volume and skin texture following their non-surgical facelift, and these results are designed to be long lasting. Because of the regenerative qualities of the stem cells that are injected during the procedure, the skin will continue to improve over time.
Ideal candidates for the non-surgical facelift are men and women who want to address the following imperfections:
  • Facial aging with little to no sagging skin
  • Poor skin texture
  • Facial volume loss
Liposuction is performed on parts of the body that tend to collect excess fat. Some of the more common donor areas that are selected for fat harvesting include:
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Back
