What Can I Expect During a Non-Surgical Facelift in Michigan?
Each customizable Michigan non-surgical facelift will be unique, but here are some general steps to expect.
Before Your Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
Before your non-surgical facelift, you may need to avoid specific things to reduce your risk of bruising, including:
- Blood-thinning medications and supplements like aspirin, ibuprofen, or vitamin E
- Alcohol for at least one to two days
- Direct sunlight or tanning beds for several weeks
- Chemical peels
- Collagen injections
- Skin care products that contain vitamin A
During Your Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
Depending on your unique needs and the procedures included in your non-surgical facelift, your procedure may take approximately 45 to 60 minutes, and you may or may not receive topical anesthesia.
Typically, Juvéderm® and Restylane® injectable procedures are quick and tolerable, with most patients reporting only minimal discomfort. These injectable procedures take approximately 15 to 30 minutes and require little to no downtime.
Mild side effects can include bruising or swelling at the injection site, which typically subside within a few days. You can resume most of your usual daily activities immediately, but please do not do strenuous activities, including exercising, for at least 24 to 48 hours.
Most patients notice an improvement immediately following dermal filler treatment. However, depending on the product used, your results may reveal themselves more gradually.
Depending on the product and placement, dermal filler results can last from six months to two years. To maintain optimal results, follow-up injections may be necessary.
