How to Get a Nonsurgical Facelift in Edmonton

Crows Feet EdmontonWhile your eyes might be the window to your soul, your face is the window to your health and your youthfulness, which is why many choose to combat aging with facelifts. But did you know there are now non-surgical facelifts?

But aren’t facelifts plastic surgery?

Not anymore. With technological advances in dermatological medicine, you don’t have to go under the knife to restore volume, resurface skin, or tighten deeper tissues.

Today, we can enhance your overall look with a nonsurgical facelift in one appointment at our office: we can add structure to your jaw to minimizing sagging (reducing the dreaded double chin), fill in the hollows under your eyes, minimize wrinkles and lines, plump up your lips, reshape your nose, and mitigate bone and fat loss in your cheeks and temples – all without performing an actual surgery.

What exactly is a nonsurgical facelift?
A nonsurgical facelift is a customized course of non-cosmetic, dermatological procedures designed to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated visage. Your nonsurgical facelift is targeted to your chosen areas and can include various treatments and procedures. Generally, nonsurgical facelifts vary from person to person, depending on your unique face and goals, but they’ll likely include some of the following:

Dermal Fillers
From your forehead to your cheeks, from your jawline to your undereyes and temples, we use dermal fillers to help increase elasticity and fullness (think fine lines, undereye hollows, scars, and gauntness). The kind of dermal filler we use will depend on your skin, but we offer both synthetic and natural fillers, which are injected using fine needles. A quick, budget-friendly visit, dermal fillers offer instantaneous, natural looking results. last depends on your skin, and follow ups are a good idea, but the desired effect can last from two months to two years. We work with these dermal fillers to offer our clients the best results: Juvederm®, Restylane®, Revanesse, and RADIESSE®.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Next up is your nose, of course. While nose jobs are still largely done surgically (especially for more challenging or distinctive changes), new innovations now allow us to reshape your nose without surgery. An increasingly popular procedure, non-surgical rhinoplasties use carefully selected dermal filler injections to adjust trouble areas from straightening to correcting to narrowing and widening. This procedure smooths bumps, fixes imperfections, and creates symmetry with grace and subtlety with no downtime and no surgical side effects.

Lip Injections
A facelift isn’t a facelift if you forget about your mouth – next to your eyes, your lips are the most looked at part of your face. As we age, our lips tend to lose some of their fulness, which we can easily remedy with lip injections. Using either dermal fillers or Botox (maybe both), we can give you your mouth the ultimate anti-aging treatment by making them fuller, softer, and more attractive, without being too obvious. At Rao Dermatology, we achieve a subtle, natural look by using your lip’s natural shape to guide us.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Can you believe that we can now give you a nose job without breaking your bones or using a scalpel?

This can be achieved with a careful and accurate injection of hyaluronic fillers. This procedure allows us to correct imperfections after a surgical Rhinoplasty, straighten noses and even build up the nasal bridge.

It can optically make the nose look smaller, shape the nostrils, as well as define the nasal tip.

It takes only minutes and there is no pain or side effects.

How Does Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Work?

The nose is the most central and prominent feature on the face; however, it shouldn’t be the first feature that attracts an onlooker’s attention. You can have a stunning pair of eyes or sculpted cheekbones, but these facial features can be overlooked by others if your nose is not in balance with the rest of your face.

Like everything else, noses come in all shapes and sizes, but by using our non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure, the nose can be reshaped through the use of dermal fillers.  Invasive rhinoplasty surgery is no longer the only way to develop better facial symmetry; Our nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure allows you the chance to create subtle changes without having to commit to the more invasive, permanent surgical option.

Our non-surgical nose job can be performed in less than 20 minutes and will deliver instant results tailored to your needs. Best of all, the procedure is less expensive than surgery and also prevents the side effects associated with it, such a scar formation and loosening of nasal cartilage.

The Benefits Of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

If you are unhappy with the shape of your nose, have an unattractive bump or dent, or are simply looking for symmetry, then our non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment can fix this. Using only fillers that have a great safety record and are approved by Health Canada, Dr. Rao will create more volume and add contours to the areas of the nose that require it and address a range of issues including:

  • A very round or bulbous nasal tip can be surgically refined and sculpted to create a more aquiline, refined and attractive appearance.
  • Slight bumps or deviations can be managed, albeit temporarily, by injections of fillers to camouflage or disguise the appearance of the irregularity.
  • Correcting asymmetry of the nose by adding filler to select areas to create a more symmetrical look.
  • If the shape of your nose has been damaged due to injury, we can use non-surgical rhinoplasty to address the issues.
  • The tip of the nose can be lifted or raised by inserting filler into the tip of the nose, giving it a lifted appearance, which results in better symmetry and more defined contours of the nose.

What Happens After The Procedure?

After the procedure, patients  can resume their normal activities right away. One can usually see results of the filler insertion immediately, there may be some swelling but that will improve in 24 -48 hours.

How Long Do Non-Surgical Nose Jobs Last?

Non-Surgical nose job results typically will last up to 1 year. We advise that clients return for maintenance before the 1-year mark in order to maintain the overall look, contour, and shape created for the nose with the dermal filler.

Ethnic Non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Many different ethnic backgrounds may pursue non surgical nose jobs.   Asian patients, in particular,  are interested in improving the nasal bridge while African-American patients may desire modification of their nasal tip.   We can definitely review the needs of all ethnic groups to see if injection of hylauronic acid can enhance the nasal appearance.
