Non Surgical Facelift Miami FL

A non-surgical facelift is a combination of injectables and other minimally-invasive treatments  that can give you a refreshed and youthful appearance without surgery. Popular nonsurgical treatments include dermal fillers like Juvederm, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Restylane, which is why these procedures are also called “liquid facelifts.” These treatments can address wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, and the dreaded double chin without incisions or downtime. Non-surgical facelifts also provide results that last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years and are much more affordable than surgical options. Non-surgical facelifts can be performed safely in a doctor’s office with minimal discomfort and no downtime so that you can return to your everyday routine right after treatment.

About Non-surgical Facelift

First, let’s look at what a surgical facelift entails. A surgical facelift or rhytidectomy involves making an incision in the skin of the face, typically starting at the temple and extending down to just below the earlobe. The surgeon then reshapes weak facial muscles and removes excess fat and skin to give the patient a more youthful appearance. Results typically last for ten years or more. However, a surgical facelift requires longer downtime, including time off of work, and like any surgery, has associated risks.

Next, let’s consider a non-surgical facelift. As mentioned earlier, a non-surgical facelift does not require incisions and can be completed in one visit with no downtime. The results are immediate, and patients typically see an improvement in their appearance almost immediately. At Rotemberg Plastic Surgery, we understand that everyone is unique and requires individualized attention regarding their facial rejuvenation needs. That’s why we offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments that can target specific areas and give you the desired result. Many of our patients love that they can get a facelift without surgery at the skilled hands of one of South Miami’s top surgeons.


Let’s start with an injectable you may still need to become familiar with: Kybella. Kybella is a revolutionary injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to help reduce the appearance of a double chin. It breaks down fat cells, making them easier to flush out via natural processes, such as urination or sweating. Results are often seen within two weeks and can last up to two years.

Patients with good skin laxity will best benefit from Kybella.

Kybella uses a naturally-occurring molecule in our bodies called deoxycholic acid to treat stubborn fat under the chin. [1] Deoxycholic acid helps break down dietary fats and is used by the body to absorb nutrients. When injected, Kybella destroys fat cells under the chin and jowls, leading to a contoured and toned appearance. 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are another popular choice for a non-surgical facelift. These injectables help to plump the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and adding volume to areas where fat may have been lost due to aging. Dermal fillers can also help restore hydration to the skin, giving it a more youthful glow. 

Common dermal fillers include:

  • Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler commonly used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles, such as smile lines and nasolabial folds. It works by restoring volume and fullness to the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
  • Sculptra is a breakthrough injectable made with poly-L-lactic acid and can correct contour deficiencies and fill wrinkles. Sculptra consists of three things: poly-L-lactic acid, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, and non-pyrogenic mannitol. Poly-L-lactic acid is a long chain of molecules that is biocompatible, biodegradable, and absorbable. [3] You do not need to do an allergy test before using Sculptra because it does not come from animals.
  • Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. It is FDA-approved for treating moderate to intense facial wrinkles and folds. Additionally, it can be used in a variety of areas on the face, such as glabellar lines, subdermal support of eyebrows, malar/buccal fat pads, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, nose region, the lip area, perioral part, marionette lines oral commissures & the chin with equal effectiveness! It is even suitable for treating acne scars. [4]
  • Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and add fullness to the lips. Results are typically seen immediately and can last from six to 18 months.

Candidates for Non-surgical Facelift

Patients who may not be good candidates for surgery will especially fit the mold for a non-surgical facelift. These patients may not be candidates for surgery because of their health, because they smoke, or do not want to take risks involved with surgery.

Patients who are ideal for a non-surgical facelift include those who have:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Acne scars or wrinkles

Preparing for Your Treatment

Different injectables may require different preparation, but there are some tips you can follow to ensure your results last as long as possible.

  • Refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which may increase the risk of bruising
  • Avoid alcohol for 48 hours before treatment
  • Don’t use any retinol products 5-7 days before treatment
  • Be sure to inform us of any medications you are taking

It’s also important to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized, as this can help maximize the effects of your non-surgical facelift.

The Non-surgical Facelift Procedure

Non Surgical Facelift Miami FL

Non-surgical facelifts typically take 30 minutes or less and require no downtime, which has earned them the title of “lunch-time procedure.” Come in for a quick treatment and be on your way!

At Rotemberg Plastic Surgery, we use the latest technologies to reduce your discomfort during treatment. We will use a numbing cream to relieve any patient who needs it. With Kybella, a more aggressive numbing method may be used, like lidocaine.

Your procedure will depend on which injectables are used and your desired results. With dermal fillers, Dr. Rotemberg strategically places the filler and determines how much product is needed based on the state of your tissue. She understands the anatomy of your face and what will bring you the most youthful results – this is not a one size fits all treatment. Your injections are customized for your face to ensure you get the best results for your unique needs.


After a non-surgical facelift, there is no downtime and minimal recovery time. Some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising, which should subside within a few days. You may also have some sensitivity at the injection sites, but this typically resolves quickly.

We recommend avoiding strenuous activities and heat for the first 24-48 hours after treatment, as this can increase your chances of irritation. Additionally, you should never massage or manipulate your face for at least two days following treatment.

What are the Results of a Non-surgical Facelift?

The results of a non-surgical facelift typically last anywhere from 6-8 months to a year or more, depending on which injectables were used and your skin type. Here is a breakdown of the expected time each treatment will last:

  • Kybella is a permanent solution for pockets of fat that create a double chin
  • Juvéderm can last for 6-12 months
  • Restylane can last for 4-6 months
  • Radiesse can last for 12-18 months
  • Sculptra can last for up to 2 years

We recommend scheduling follow-up appointments at Dr. Rotemberg’s suggestion, depending on your filler and when maintenance injections will benefit you.
