Types of Non-Surgical Facelifts We Offer:

Dermal fillers – injectables that restore volume to achieve smooth skin. They fill in static wrinkles, plump up hollow areas, and contour the skin. 

Botox® – injectables that block nerve signals that control selected facial muscles. When these muscles relax, lines and wrinkles soften, and the skin achieves a smoother-looking appearance. 

Virtue RF – combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy for skin renewal. The body’s natural healing response and new collagen formation give the skin a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

CoolPeel – provides the benefits of traditional CO2 resurfacing without damaging the skin. The gentle treatment targets the superficial layer of skin tissue to remove damaged skin and reveal the younger, healthier-looking layer beneath.

Ultimate Duo – combines CoolPeel laser with Virtue RF microneedling to produce comprehensive improvements in fewer treatment sessions.

Sylfirm X – merges traditional microneedling with the power of repeated, ultra-short pulses of radiofrequency energy for remarkable collagen and elastin stimulation.

Your Procedure

Step 1: Virtue RF Treatment

The non-surgical facelift begins with the Ultimate Duo combination procedure, starting with the Virtue RF treatment. We will apply a numbing cream 30-45 minutes before treatment. You may feel slight pressure from the handpiece, especially on bony areas of the face.

Step 2: Post-Treatment Mask

You may have some redness after the procedure, but the post-treatment mask, infused with antioxidants, vitamins, moisturizers, and anti-inflammatory properties, should soothe the skin and reduce side effects. A full-face treatment will take approximately 20 minutes to perform, depending on the treatment area’s size and the overall skin condition.

Step 3: CoolPeel Treatment

For the CoolPeel treatment, a handheld device delivers short pulses of energy to the treatment area, creating a controlled injury with less heat buildup in the skin. The CoolPeel takes about 15-20 minutes to perform on the face.

Step 4: Botox and Dermal Filler Injections

Next, we will administer Botox and dermal filler injections, which typically take just a few minutes to complete. We use the “needleless” technique with blunt-tipped microcannulas to inject small amounts of Botox and filler into each of the targeted areas around your nose, mouth, cheeks, and jawline. Once your treatment is completed, you may resume your regular activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost varies depending on the patient’s unique needs and aesthetic goals. Given that these treatments are customized, factors that affect the cost include the specific areas you wish to target, the extent of your signs of aging, the types of injectables used, and the number of units used. Your provider will discuss the expected cost of your non-surgical facelift during your consultation.

In most cases, patients are advised to avoid taking aspirin, NSAIDs, vitamin E supplements, and other blood thinners two weeks before their treatment to minimize the risk of bruising,

You should see noticeable improvements within seven days of your treatment as the injectables settle and your skin renews itself from the laser and RF microneedling procedures. Because of collagen production, your results will continue to improve within the next three months after your procedure.

Our non-surgical facelift produces long-lasting results. You can enjoy your results for several months up to several years. Factors that affect the longevity of your results include your lifestyle and how quickly your body absorbs the injectables. Medical-grade skincare, including sun protection, will help prolong your results. We will create a maintenance plan to help optimize and extend your results.

While there are technically no age restrictions for undergoing non-surgical facelifts, there are age restrictions laid out by the FDA on injectables. Patients must be 18 to receive Botox injections and 21 to receive dermal fillers.


Although many people commonly begin to notice lines in their 40s, other genes and lifestyle factors can put them on the fast track. Regardless of age, some people are also more expressive than others, resulting in the earlier onset of lines and wrinkles. Younger patients may also want preventative treatment for aging symptoms. These people can benefit from a non-surgical facelift and may consult with a trained and experienced provider to determine the best procedure plan for them.

A non-surgical facelift is typically not covered by insurance because it is considered an elective procedure that is not medically necessary.
