Soft Lift vs Surgical Facelift

Worried about the effects age is having on your skin and appearance? A facelift is not the only option for achieving your aesthetic goals. At our Kelowna skin clinic, we offer a variety of anti-ageing surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to choose from.

Each patient is different and you should undergo the skin treatment that is right for you and which will help you find the look you desire.

Soft Lift Cosmetic Treatment

If you’ve considered a facelift, but don’t want the expense, risk and downtime of surgery, we offer non-surgical Soft Lift treatments at our Kelowna clinic. This non-invasive facelift combines the benefits of Botox and Juvederm for a treatment that provides subtle, refreshed and youthful results.

The Botox works to:
  • Soften wrinkles around the eyes

  • Lift the brow

  • Minimize ‘smokers lines’

  • Reduce chin dimpling


The Juvederm works to:
  • Improve volume in the chin, cheeks and lips

  • Reduce nasolabial folds

  • Define the lip border

  • Lift downturned mouth corners


Am I a Soft Lift Candidate?

Soft Lift is a versatile skin treatment that is suitable for men and women of all skin types. The best candidates are those that are in good general health and with skin of a normal thickness.

However, this treatment is NOT recommended for people who are:

  • Breastfeeding or pregnant
  • Experiencing a skin infection at the treatment site
  • Allergic to any ingredients in Botox or Juvederm
  • Suffering from a neuromuscular disease
  • Known to have a history of anaphylaxis

During a personalized consultation at our Kelowna skin clinic, you can discuss your aesthetic goals and anti-aging concerns with our skin experts to best determine whether Soft Lift is a safe procedure for you.


When A Facelift Is Appropriate

Despite the lower risks and costs of a Soft Lift treatment, sometimes a facelift is a better facial rejuvenation option. This is particularly true for patients with very pronounced wrinkles, usually due to age.

Which is better: Soft Lift or a Surgical Facelift?

When deciding which anti-aging treatment is right for you, it’s important to remember that your skin specialist will take into consideration a number of factors. These include:

  • Your age
  • The severity of your anti-ageing concerns
  • Financial constraints
  • If you have time for an extensive recovery period
  • Your general health

A facelift is probably your best option when you:

  • Have prominent jowls
  • Are trying to eliminate sagging skin and fat, especially leading to a less-defined chin
  • Have very deep skin folds, producing thick lines around the nose and mouth
  • Have up to 14 days available for recovery
