Benefits of a Facelift

If you have deep lines and wrinkles, excess sagging skin, or deep folds around your nose and mouth, or excess skin drooping over your eyes, a facelift may be a more effective treatment. While it is a surgery requiring anesthesia and has a higher up-front cost, it is an investment that lasts a long time. Good candidates for a facelift are non-smokers in good health. Recovery time from a facelift is longer than recovery time for injectables, but the results are more permanent.

Benefits of Injectables

The benefits of injectables for face rejuvenation is that you can often get a treatment on your lunch hour, see immediate results, and immediately resume activity. The cost and downtime are minimal compared to facelift surgery. However, injectables like Botox®and Juvederm only offer temporary rejuvenation and must be repeated every few months to every two years in order to maintain the appearance you desire. The ideal candidate for injectables is someone who has lost the plump, full look around cheeks or lips or has fine lines or light wrinkles and wants to quickly look younger without the recovery time of surgery.

How Do I Know What’s Best for Me?

Choosing between surgery and injectables is a personal decision that must include consideration of your health, the trouble areas you are trying to resolve, and the cost of your investment.
