Non-surgical Facelift

A facelift gives San Jose, Palo Alto and other residents of Silicon Valley facial rejuvenation that is unmatched. This surgical procedure is typically not appropriate for younger patients in their late 30s to 40s who want to maintain a youthful look. Many people of all ages would like to look the best they can without surgery. Dr. Hoffman offers an attractive solution - the non-surgical facelift. This customized combination procedure provides lasting, but temporary improvements with minimally invasive treatments.

How the Face Ages

Wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin are well-known signs of the aging process. Many people do not realize that loss of collagen in the skin, which provides resilience and plumpness, is another factor. Volume is lost in the cheeks, temples, under the eyes, and around the mouth. This common sign of aging is usually due to a decline in facial fat and muscle.

Addressing Aging without Surgery

Dr. Hoffman has perfected his technique for the non-surgical facelift, sometimes called a "liquid facelift." To do so, he combines minimally invasive treatments that address aging of the skin and volume loss in the face by:

  • Restoring volume and sculpting features with dermal fillers including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, and fat transfer
  • Softening dynamic wrinkles and extending the life of fillers with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®
  • Improving skin tone with Fraxel®, IPL, or chemical peels (can be used before, during and after the procedure)
  • Tightening skin on the face and neck with Precision TX™ (formerly called Sidelaze) laser treatments

The Procedure

Dr. Hoffman performs non-surgical facelifts as an office procedure using local anesthesia. The order in which he administers the treatments depends on the patient's unique needs. Treatment time varies as well, but the procedure is typically complete in an hour.

Recovery & Results

The recovery period is typically minimal, but may include slight bruising, redness, and swelling, which can be concealed with makeup if necessary. It is important to avoid sun exposure and to wear sunscreen as a preventative measure.

Patients typically see immediate smoothing of wrinkles and fullness where volume was replenished from the dermal fillers. Your face will likely look younger gradually as the BOTOX takes effect and collagen is renewed in the skin. Improvements last approximately 1 year. For an additional charge, BOTOX treatments every 4 months and fillers at 6 months can extend the life of your results.
