Surgical Vs Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Looking for ways to dramatically and instantly rejuvenate your facial appearance? From Restylane and Soft Lift treatments, to surgical facelifts, we have all you need at our Kelowna skin clinic to restore your youth and beauty. 

Cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate the face is a common, effective and time-tested way to reduce the signs of facial aging including:

  • Sagging skin
  • Unwanted fine lines and wrinkles
  • Volume loss
  • Age spots

Despite the proven benefits of facial plastic surgery, however, more and more patients are turning to non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers (e.g. Juvederm and Restylane) or innovative combination treatments such as Soft Lift.

Customized Anti-Aging Treatments at Our Kelowna Skin Clinic

At Okanagan Skin Clinic, we understand that everyone’s skin needs are different. That’s why we offer fully customized anti-aging treatments including Juvederm, Botox and Soft Lift, to help you safely and successfully achieve all your aesthetic goals.


Tissue Fillers: An Innovative Approach to Anti-Aging

As we age, the elements and our lifestyle choices cause the skin of our face to become lax, wrinkled and saggy. One primary cause is a loss of hyaluronic acid, a substance our bodies produce naturally. Unfortunately, as we age, our production of hyaluronic acid slows down.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can be an effective way to firm, sculpt and rejuvenate affected areas, while working as collagen stimulants.

They can be used to treat:

  • Volume loss
  • Marionette lines
  • An ageing neck
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Jowls
  • Chin wrinkles
  • A lax jaw line

In certain cases, your skin specialist may use Juvederm or Restylane in conjunction with a mini-facelift to plump and smooth any problem areas that were not adequately resolved by tissue fillers alone.


Soft Lift Cosmetic Treatment

Often referred to as a ‘non-surgical facelift’, Soft Lift is a customized anti-aging treatment that combines the powerful effects of Juvederm tissue filler with Botox to instantly rejuvenate your appearance.

At our skin clinic, we often recommend this cosmetic procedure as a quick and effective alternative to more drastic options such as surgery. This is because it can address multiple signs of aging including:

  • Volume loss in cheeks, lips and temples
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Unwanted wrinkles and fine lines such as crow’s feet and nasolabial folds
  • It can enhance your facial contours for an overall fresher look


When Non-Surgical Treatments Aren’t Enough

As beneficial as Soft Lift or tissue fillers may be, and despite their lower cost, sometimes a facelift is a better option for achieving facial rejuvenation. This is particularly true for patients whose wrinkles are more pronounced, usually due to age.

What is a facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, improves the loose skin of the neck, the jaw line, deeper wrinkle lines and the corners of the mouth. It is also recommended for patients who want long lasting anti-aging results.

A facelifts benefits last from 5-10 years.
Dermal filler benefits can last from 6-12 months.

Which Is Better: Facelift or Dermal Fillers?

Decisions regarding cosmetic surgery and aesthetic enhancement are unique to each patient. Which treatment or procedure is right for you will depend on many factors including:

  • Your age
  • Your appearance
  • The severity of the problems that need correcting
  • The time you can spend recovering
  • Financial considerations
  • Your general feelings about cosmetic surgery

During an in-depth consultation at our Kelowna skin clinic, you will discuss your needs, aesthetic goals and medical history with our skin specialist to better determine which cosmetic treatment is right for you.
