Non-Surgical Facelift in New York

An Alternative to Surgery

In the past, the preferred option to reverse the signs of aging was a face-lift, which can add up to weeks and even months of recovery time. Fortunately, Dr. Rokhsar can provide his patients with non-surgical options to reach their desired results. This is a non-invasive option for patients who would like modest results with zero downtime and no scarring to worry about. The non-invasive route can improve those with facial aging can result in changes in the position of facial fate, increased wrinkles, sagging of excess skin and hollowness in cheeks and around the eyes.

Dr. Rokhsar provides several different techniques in order to achieve improvement in the face, making his clients look younger and healthier. Techniques such as botox, fillers, lasers, ultrasound energy, and thermal energy are used to smooth away wrinkles and ultimately decrease signs of aging. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is among the finest surgeons for non-surgical facelift1 New York has to offer–and his results prove it!

Practicing New York City and Long Island Dermatologist, Dr. Rokhsar is the first doctor in the United States to use Fraxel lasers to treat wrinkles, acne and scarring. He has been a lead research and pioneer in the science of resurfacing with the Fraxel laser. Fraxel is the first brand to develop the concept of treating the skin in small microscopic areas at a time, allowing the skin to heal and create newer, healthier skin with minimal downtime. Resurfacing peels away the layers of damaged or wrinkled skin in small fragments and stimulates the under layers so the body can naturally replace the skin’s surface. This laser therapy achieves a patient’s desired results 15 to 30 percent each time.

Thermage is an exciting new non-surgical procedure that offers an innovative way to rejuvenate your face2 without surgery. It involves the application of radiofrequency energy to your face. This energy strategically heats collagen, which composes your skin. In response to heat, your loose, weakened, and disorganized collagen will strengthen, tighten, and become organized. This translates into tighter, younger-appearing skin, without surgery.

Dr. Rokhsar performs this procedure combining Radiesse injections into the cheeks as well.

A More Youthful Face without Surgery

For those that are opposed to surgery, there are still ways to achieve face tightening and augmentation without having to go under a knife. Non-invasive, out-patient procedures such as non-surgical nose jobs, non-surgical eye lifts, non-surgical chin augmentations, and even non-surgical facelifts3 in Manhattan can be achieved in several different ways depending on a patient’s cosmetic goals.

Virtually painless procedures include Botox injections, fillers, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, and the ones that can provide the more dramatic results are the laser resurfacing technologies, radiofrequency treatment, heat therapy, light therapy, and ultrasound therapy. Board-certified NYC dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar has unrivaled experience using the Fraxel laser because of his involvement with its development. He has also taught more physicians on the use and science of the Fraxel technology than any other physician in the world. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures is his expertise and he provides many treatments options and plans for his patients including: Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to affect skin cells deep within the layers in order to stimulate skin production as well as Thermage, which uses radiofrequency technology to work deep into the skin by heating the area and remodeling the collagen to tighten and taut the skin.

Using fillers and Botox injections to treat the face can be a very effective in-office treatment to tighten skin and smooth out wrinkles. Fillers are typically made out of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance already found in the human body as fluid in the joints and eyes. Because it is a naturally occurring substance, the chance of the body rejecting the filler is significantly reduced. It works by replenishing the fat loss in the face from aging, as well as smoothing out the wrinkles that line the face. Botox injections compliment filler injections because it lifts and tightens wrinkles and loose skin, while fillers plump and refresh the face. This is also known as a liquid facelift, which gives an overall natural result.

Non Surgical Facelift FAQ

How is a non-surgical facelift performed?

Thermage is a system that uses a similar treatment to that of laser skin tightening. However, this technique uses radiofrequency energy to heat and stimulate collagen. Collagen is responsible for the structure of the skin. Thermage administers treatment to the deeper layer of the skin without having to make an incision.

What is the difference in results from a tradition facelift?

Traditional facelifts require cutting the skin just behind the hairline and re-attaching it further back than its original position in order to tighten and taut the facial skin. A non-surgical facelift can achieve facial rejuvenation and is usually less expensive than traditional surgical facelifts that require downtime and have certain associated risks, as do any surgeries. Botox and fillers may also be used in conjunction with Thermage and can be completed during a lunch break with no downtime at all.

What is a non-surgical facelift?

Non-surgical facelift is a combination of minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments that can refresh, rejuvenate, and enhance the appearance of your face. Unlike a surgical facelift, non-surgical facelifts don’t require large incisions, general anesthesia, or overnight hospital stays.

The treatments involved in a non-surgical facelift can vary depending on the patient’s specific concerns, but typically include a combination of injectables, such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox, and skin tightening procedures like Ultherapy and Thermitight. These treatments can help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness, and lift and tighten sagging skin.

Non-surgical facelifts are often recommended for patients who want to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the risks, recovery time, and expense associated with surgery. However, while non-surgical facelifts can provide excellent results, they are not permanent and may require ongoing maintenance treatments to maintain the desired outcome. During a consultation, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar will discuss your goals and expectations to determine which treatment options are right for you. Dr. Rokhsar is a double-board-certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon and he teaches the Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic to resident physicians at Mt Sinai Hospital.

What is a liquid facelift?

Liquid facelift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the use of injectable fillers and neuromodulators, such as Botox, to rejuvenate the face and create a more youthful appearance. The goal of this procedure is to reduce sagging and wrinkles, plump up the lips, and restore lost facial volume. The injectables used can help by filling in deep wrinkles, adding volume to cheeks and lips, and relaxing facial muscles to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional facelift and typically requires little to no downtime. We recommend you consult with double-board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon Dr. Cameron Rokhsar to determine if a liquid facelift is right for you and to discuss the specific options available based on your individual goals and concerns.

What is a vampire facelift?

A vampire facelift is a cosmetic procedure that combines the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) extracted from your own blood with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to restore volume loss, lift sagging skin, and smooth lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is drawn from the patient and then processed to isolate the PRP, which is then injected into the treatment area along with the dermal filler. The PRP contains growth factors that promote tissue regeneration and healing. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in a short amount of time, making it a popular option for those seeking a non-surgical facelift. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, it is important to discuss your goals and expectations with a board-certified dermatologist.

What is the best laser for a non surgical face lift?

The best two devices for a non surgical face lift are the Thermitight procedure and fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. They both work through the concept of tightening the skin with heat. The thermitight procedure uses radiofrequency to heat up the skin, while fractional CO2 laser resurfacing uses a laser to tighten the skin and smoothen out lines and wrinkles. They deliver heat at different layers of the skin. Both procedures have a few days down time. Which procedure is best for you depends on what area is of most concern. If the lower face and neck are of concern, the Thermitight procedure may best suit you. If your upper face, cheeks and your eyes are the issue, a fractional CO2 laser may be the best option for you. Dr. Rokhsar combines the two procedures in many patients for amazing dramatic results that may be better than a full face surgical lift.
