A Non-surgical Facelift with Dr. Raggio often involves a variety of treatment options to boost the skin and underlying structures’ firmness to enhance your appearance.

What is a Non-surgical Facelift?

A non-surgical facelift is a cosmetic procedure wherein Dr. Raggio implements any combination of non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques to create a more youthful and rested appearance. Common non-invasive treatments that Dr. Raggio employs include botulinum toxin (BOTOX), injectable fillers (Juvederm), Radiofrequency Microneedling, and CO2 laser treatments, amongst others.

What are the benefits of a Non-surgical Facelift?

If you are concerned about the appearance of aging on your face and are considering a non-surgical facelift, here are some of the ways one of our Non-surgical Facelift in Birmingham can benefit you: 

  • Reduce sagging skin around your face and jawline
  • Reduce shadows and bags around your eyes
  • Improve the volume of your lips and cheeks
  • Bring back a youthful vibrance to your skin
  • Reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, marionette lines and creases
  • Restore your confidence

Who are the best candidates for a Non-surgical Facelift?

What’s the first step to a non-surgical facelift?

What are the first steps?

The first step to restoring your youthful appearance through a non-surgical facelift is to call our practice to schedule a consultation. During this session, Dr. Raggio will perform a detailed facial analysis, assess your goals, and ultimately advise which specific procedures are best suited to you. Dr. Raggio will explain the process of the non-surgical facelift so you know what to expect, and discuss the potential risks. We encourage you to share any relevant medical history so that you can make an informed choice about your proposed procedure(s).

What to expect on the day of the Non-surgical Facelift procedure

Our non-surgical facelift procedures typically take place in our state-of-the-art cosmetic facility in Birmingham, AL. The treatments are typically completed in one session. When you arrive at our clinic, our team will prep you for the procedure while Dr. Raggio walks you through the process and techniques he will be using. Oftentimes, oral sedation is provided along with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to maximize your comfort and ensure a pain-free procedure. Then, a team member may apply a topical numbing agent to further minimize any pain and discomfort, depending on the procedure being performed. 

Once the skin or treatment area is numb, Dr. Raggio will begin the procedure. Some require filler and BOTOX injections to the skin and face, some use minimally invasive techniques such as Radiofrequency Microneedling, and others use CO2 laser technology. 

Here is what you can expect for the following non-surgical facelift treatments:

  • Chemical peels: Chemicals remove the top layers of your skin. Depending on the strength of the peel selected, some people need multiple chemical peels to achieve the results they want.
  • BOTOX: botulinum toxin injections are injected in the entire face, especially the lower ⅓ and neck. Results can last up to three to four months.
  • Dermal fillers: Also called soft tissue fillers, injections of substances such as hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials add volume back to deflated or hollowed areas of the face. These fillers typically last 12 months or more.
  • Fat injections: Also called autologous fat grafting, facial fat injections use adipose tissue (fat) from elsewhere in your body to delicately fill in devolumized areas of your face. Fat injections are more invasive than dermal fillers, in the sense that low-volume liposuction is necessary to harvest the fat from your body, but they offer a superior result to dermal fillers based on their natural appearance, stem cell effects, and durability. 
  • Laser skin resurfacing: Dr. Raggio implements a fractionated CO2 laser to remove the older, outer layers of your skin, removing several years of skin damage. Laser skin resurfacing can help your skin appear smoother and firmer.
  • Radiofrequency Microneedling: Radiofrequency microneedling (RF microneedling) is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that enhances the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling with the heat of radiofrequency energy.  It improves skin texture, tone, pore size, fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, acne scars, and stretch marks.  

As one can see, Dr. Raggio can implement multiple modalities to improve your overall attractiveness. Allow his expertise to guide you through the process of obtaining a more vibrant, youthful facial appearance.

Dr. Raggio will give you specific information on how to care for your face depending on the procedures performed.

How much does a Non-surgical Facelift cost in Birmingham, AL?

    Dr. Raggio is the absolute best! He listens and is very precise with his injections. I am extremely happy with the results I have gotten with him. He does not push any services on you, either. I have uploaded two pictures to show the difference. I get Botox and lip filler.

    5 Star Review

    I went to Dr Reggio for my eyelids. They were folding over. I was scared to have the surgery but the right eye was bothering me. So I decided to have the surgery and this Doctor is such a delight and kind-hearted. I am very, very happy with the way my surgery turned out. I would highly recommend Dr. Raggio to anyone!
