Non-Surgical Facelift Alternatives
If you are unwilling to commit to a facelift, there are several non-invasive alternatives that can significantly improve your skin's texture and appearance. Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau can meet with you to discuss your treatment goals, helping you choose the right option for your needs. Non-invasive alternatives such as injectable treatments, skin resurfacing, and collagen induction can greatly enhance your appearance. To learn more about these facelift alternatives, contact our surgeons in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and schedule your personal consultation.
We offer a variety of injectable skin treatments including BOTOX® Cosmetic. By placing the injections at carefully planned locations, we can reduce the habitual movements that cause wrinkles.
In particular, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be a great way to eliminate horizontal creases in your forehead, as well as crow’s feet and frown lines. Treatment results can last up to four months. Ongoing treatments will help maintain your results.
If you are not ready for a facelift, you can still enjoy a rejuvenated look. We can carefully evaluate your needs, choosing the treatment regimen that will yield the most effective results.
Dermal fillers are another injectable skin treatment. These gels can fill in deep creases, especially around your mouth and nose. They can reduce scars, from conditions such as acne. We may recommend dermal fillers to enhance facial volume. For instance, if you have sagging skin in your cheek area, or if you have naturally thin lips, dermal fillers can give you a younger, plumper appearance.
Fine wrinkles, scars, and irregular pigmentation are often located on the outermost layers of your skin. Through a variety of skin resurfacing procedures, we can remove the damaged tissue. The healthy skin below can then take its place.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most common treatments. During this procedure, we will direct a stream of air at the treatment area. This air will contain thousands of microscopic particles, much like sand, which removes the top layer of skin.
Chemical peels have similar results. During this procedure, a chemical solution will be applied to the treatment area. These solutions are available in various strengths. A mild peel can rejuvenate your skin. A deep peel can target scars, pigment irregularities, and other more serious blemishes.
Dermabrasion is another method that is used frequently at the Landings Surgical Centre. This is different than microdermabrasion in the depth of the skin treatment and also in the expected result. The downtime is longer and it may not be a suitable treatment for all patients. It can be used for the treatment of acne scars as well as in facial aging. It can tighten the skin without the added scars of a facelift.
Clinical Skin Care
Your body naturally produces collagen. This protein makes your skin flexible, and it aids in the reproduction of new skin cells. As you grow older, collagen production slows down. Through collagen induction therapy (CIT), or micro-needling, we can improve skin elasticity. Since these treatments will stimulate natural collagen production, results can last for months, or even years.
During CIT, we will treat your skin with a roller, containing tiny needles. By creating microscopic punctures, the skin roller will stimulate your body’s natural healing process. In turn, this will increase collagen levels. You will enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin with only minor irritation and virtually no down time.
We also offer a variety of advanced skin products. These topical creams, makeups, and sunscreens are more effective than those available at the drug store. Additionally, we can carefully evaluate your needs, choosing the treatment regimen that will yield the most effective results.
