Non-surgical Facelift: Which Option Is Best For You?

Not ready for a surgical facelift? In the bustling hub of NYC, where innovation meets aesthetics, more individuals are opting for non-surgical solutions for facial rejuvenation.

A surgical facelift has traditionally been the go-to procedure for reversing the signs of aging, but with the advances in aesthetic medicine, a non surgical facelift NYC can offer promising results without the associated surgery and downtime.


There are many approaches and treatments that make up a non-surgical approach to a facelift. If you are considering rejuvenating your appearance or refining areas of your face, it’s important to consult a board-certified practitioner with expert knowledge of facial anatomy so that you benefit from a well thought-through plan that delivers optimal results.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Levine, is world-renowned for combining cutting-edge treatments to create results that look natural. As a global leader in aesthetics, she is often the first to offer treatments like Emface and Daxxify – two of NYC’s most popular facial treatments of 2023.

Biostimulation in Facial Aesthetics

Biostimulatory treatments are gaining traction and if you aren’t familiar with this growing field yet, it’s something to consider in your search for the best ‘lift’ for you.

As the name suggests, these treatments stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, vital proteins that maintain skin elasticity and volume.

You may have heard of ‘biostimulatory fillers,’ which is a bit of a misnomer because unlike dermal fillers that add immediate volume, biostimulatory injectables offer a more gradual, natural improvement, reinforcing the skin’s underlying structure over time.

By definition, the ‘biostimulatory’ category can also encompass any treatment that stimulates the body to produce collagen, and in some cases, elastin. These treatments include PDO threads, Ultherapy, Emface and Evoke – all of which can be used to accomplish a non-surgical face lift.


Dermal Fillers

Age brings with it the gradual loss of facial volume. Cosmetic fillers come to the rescue, adeptly filling and smoothing areas around the eyes and cheeks. Integrating fillers into a comprehensive facial rejuvenation strategy can:

  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles.
  • Enhance shallow contours.
  • Reconstruct facial deformities.
  • Improve scar appearances.
  • Reduce under-eye shadows.

With the swift and efficient application, dermal fillers can rejuvenate different facial zones within a short span.


Ultherapy is one of Dr. Levine’s favored non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment options because it targets the same deep layers of tissue as a surgical facelift.

While it is not a replacement for a facelift for those challenged with severe skin laxity, it is the only FDA-cleared treatment that utilizes ultrasound to reproduce the results of a facelift by going deep into the foundational layers of the tissue.

Ultherapy stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production to lift the tissue and tighten skin, which gradually lifts, plumps and tightens over 6 months.

One of the main benefits of Ultherapy is that – unlike most non-surgical treatments – it can be completed in one session.

Testimonials for Ultherapy treatments with Dr. Levine highlight its non-invasive nature, with one former client saying, “A Brazilian wax is 10x more painful!”


thread lift is another biostimulatory procedure that uses dissolvable PDO threads that pull and tighten the tissue of sagging skin to elevate the skin around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and neck. 

The PDO threads are anchored onto the sagging tissue before the thread is lifted to tighten the skin and naturally contour the face. This produces some immediate effects, with further rejuvenating results improving over time as the threads stimulate the body’s collagen production processes.


Individuals in their 40s to 60s find the non-surgical facelift especially beneficial, often reporting looking up to a decade younger. The myriad benefits of a non surgical face lift in NYC include:

  • Addressing aging signs.
  • Reducing double chins.
  • Eliminating jowls.
  • Firming facial skin.
  • Diminishing deep wrinkles.


Since a non surgical face lift encompasses fillers and injectables, periodic maintenance is essential. Treatments like Botox might require touch-ups every 3 to 4 months, while dermal fillers, depending on the area of the face, may last from 6 months to 2 years.

The beauty of the non surgical face lift NYC lies in its adaptability. As the effects wear off, the face reverts to its natural state, allowing for future customizations.
