What You Should Know About Recovering from a Non-Surgical Facelift

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are the ideal solution for modern men and women. Nowadays, most people lead hectic lifestyles and are unwilling to commit to the downtime that plastic surgery usually involves. Therefore, these non-invasive are the perfect opportunity to receive fast and effective cosmetic treatments without major interference in everyday life.

However, some non-invasive treatments still require some downtime. This recovery time will mainly depend on the number of areas treated and the type of procedures involved. Understanding the implications of any cosmetic procedure is essential, as you might need to plan your recovery time in advance.

Dr. Naz can achieve anything from subtle corrections of minor cosmetic defects to more noticeable facial changes. Usually, the procedures that make those changes are the ones that require special aftercare, and non-surgical facial lifts are undoubtedly one of them.

What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?

A non-surgical facelift combines different minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedures that smooth signs of aging like wrinkles and expression lines and recovers your skin’s glow and youthful appearance. Although they don’t achieve drastic changes as a surgical facelift, they obtain noticeable results and are the perfect choice for those patients looking for a natural transformation.

The most common procedures involved in this treatment are Botox® injections, dermal fillers, and Belkyra double chin treatment. They are combined according to the needs of each particular patient to achieve the goals previously discussed in the initial consultation.

What to Expect After a Non-Surgical Facelift

Although one of the most significant benefits of a non-surgical facelift is that you’ll need minimal downtime to recover, you still need to follow some instructions after the procedure. As Dr. Naz customizes facelifts according to the needs and desires of each individual, different patients will have different recoveries. However, as a general rule, we recommend patients relax and stay at home for a day or two. During this time, you are not encouraged to practice sports or any strenuous activity. We also advise applying a cold compress on the treated areas for 10 to 20 minutes at a time for two or three days until the swelling goes down.

Some patients that receive a comprehensive treatment will prefer to stay at home until the swelling subsides and the redness disappears, which can take up to 7 days.

Less Recovery Time Compared to Facelift Surgery

The good news is that, despite the aftercare indications, non-surgical facelift recovery is still much quicker and less restrictive than the one needed after the surgical alternative. As there are no incisions, no general anesthesia, and no stitches, you won’t experience severe swelling or bruises, and the recovery will be more comfortable.
