Many people wonder whether facelift surgery is necessary, or if non-surgical rejuvenation treatments can help them combat the signs of aging. Injectable fillers and muscle relaxants like Restylane, Botox, and Dysport, can provide some patients with a degree of facial rejuvenation without the risks of surgery, but other patients may only achieve the results they desire through a facelift.

A patient may benefit from facelift surgery if he or she has sagging, lax skin around the jowls, neck, chin, and face. There are several types of facelifts, but in general, the procedure involves making incisions around the ears, repositioning the facial muscles, and tightening the skin. Facelifts can drastically counteract the effects of aging and provide a fresh, youthful appearance.

Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, on the other hand, are typically used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows, nasolabial fold (laugh lines), lips, and on the forehead. These treatments cannot achieve the same results as facelift surgery, and must be repeated to maintain the desired look. The best candidates for non-surgical rejuvenation treatments include patients who have wrinkles and lines, but have little or no sagging skin. These treatments may be used to supplement a facelift, or as an effective alternative for patients who wish to delay a facelift for a period of time.
