Not all women and men who want a more youthful appearance want, or need, facial plastic surgery. In those cases, Dr. Eric Mariotti creates a personalized treatment plan that combines a range of nonsurgical procedures, such as dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections. Residents of Walnut Creek, Danville and other East Bay communities choose our Concord medical spa for nonsurgical facelifts that can reverse signs of aging with little to no downtime.
The advantage of a nonsurgical facelift is that there’s no downtime, incisions, or scars. Depending on the specific procedures used, the results can last for several months or more. BOTOX and Dysport, for example, typically last about 4 months and some fillers can last for up to 18 months. We recommend scheduling periodic treatments to maintain the results.
Good Nonsurgical Facelift Candidates
Patients who can benefit from nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments share certain characteristics. For example, you may be following a good daily skin care regimen, but have noticed wrinkling, a loss of volume and uneven skin tone. If your skin retains most of its elasticity, you are probably a good candidate for a nonsurgical facelift. Dr. Mariotti assesses your skin tone during your consultation.
We also offer VISIA® Complexion Analysis to evaluate your skin’s condition both above and below the surface. Keep in mind that only a surgical facelift can reposition sagging muscle and tissue to create long-lasting results.
Creating Youthful Contours
Combining the appropriate fillers with BOTOX or Dysport can address aesthetic concerns in all areas of the face. Fillers work where the loss of volume creates creases or a hollow appearance, such as the nasolabial folds or in the cheeks. BOTOX and Dysport injections smooth wrinkles and lines caused by a lifetime of smiling, frowning, squinting and other movement of facial muscles. These are called “dynamic” wrinkles and BOTOX and Dysport work by relaxing these muscles.
BOTOX and Dysport can be an excellent choice for addressing concerns such as:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Restylane® and Sculptra® Aesthetic, target lost volume in the cheeks and lips, along with lines around the mouth.
Other Nonsurgical Treatments
Nonsurgical facelifts are often called “liquid facelifts” because they rely primarily on injectable treatments, but comprehensive facial rejuvenation also addresses the skin’s tone and texture. At MSpa, our med spa near Walnut Creek, we offer specialty facials that refresh your skin through exfoliation and replenishment of vital nutrients and also reverse signs of aging.
The most popular anti-aging facials include:
- HydraFacial MD®: We can customize HydraFacial treatments to address multiple concerns, including wrinkles, uneven skin tone and the skin’s loss of elasticity. The 3-step process removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores and nourishes the skin with a special serum.
- MSpa Signature Facial: Our 60-minute MSpa Signature facial provides smooth, restored, youthful-looking skin with gentle aromas of rose and jasmine. Combined with a calming eye mask to relieve tired eyes and soften fine lines. Awaken your skin’s glow. Also, delight your hands and feet with a relaxing, warm and soothing treatment.
When combining anti-aging facials and injectable procedures in a single treatment, we usually perform the facial first. Alternatively, we can do the BOTOX/Dysport and filler injections during one treatment and schedule a facial about 10 to 14 days later.
