Imagine looking years younger without undergoing facelift surgery! A “non-surgical facelift” is a customized, age-defying treatment involving dermal fillers and BOTOX injections. For even more dramatic results, laser skin resurfacing or Ultherapy could be performed in combination with your liquid facelift.

What does a non-surgical facelift entail?

A non-surgical facelift at Gold Coast Plastic Surgery in Chicago may include:


If you have a creased brow, frown lines between your eyebrows, or crow’s feet, BOTOX injections may be performed to smooth away the years. BOTOX injections are effective, safe, and among the most popular of all injectable treatments. However, it is critical that your injections are performed by an expert that understands the product, facial muscular structure, and how to achieve a smooth, effortless elegance that looks entirely natural, not frozen or overdone. 

Dermal fillers

Fillers, including Juvéderm, Restylane, and Radiesse, may be injected to smooth wrinkles, lines, and creases or add volume to the lips, under the eyes, in the temples, or along the jawline or chin. The cheekbones may be enhanced with Voluma, which has a subtle lifting effect on the lower facial tissues. 

Facial skin rejuvenation

You may choose to restore youthful, tight skin with one of our non-surgical skin treatments, such as Ultherapy or BBL Halo, which work to trigger natural skin regeneration or shrink overly large pores. A custom chemical peel can work wonders on skin flaws while restoring a more supple, resilient skin quality.


For double chin fat, KYBELLA injections are an excellent solution. This product works to destroy fat cells in the target area, which are shed by the body’s natural processes over time, for a more sculpted profile.

What will the procedure entail?

If you are considering a non-surgical facelift, it is likely you want to look younger but want the outcome to be subtle and natural in appearance. Dr. Moynihan and his team of aesthetic providers are known for their exceptional artistry, professionalism, and expertise in facial treatments, including non-surgical facelift procedures. You will rest comfortably, in privacy, during your treatment and your skin will be numbed before the procedure for your comfort. 

With BOTOX, you need a few days to enjoy the results, but the injections take just minutes to perform. For cheek, jawline, and chin augmentation with dermal fillers, you will see the changes at once. Rather than taking a radical approach, Dr. Moynihan and his team are conservative when injecting dermal fillers, working to enhance your natural features rather than dramatically changing your appearance. The ideal outcome is a refreshed, youthful look that can’t be identified as being the result of injections. This result requires refined injection techniques and a breadth of knowledge regarding facial balance and structure and the various types of injectables. 

What is the recovery time after a non-surgical facelift?

You can expect little to no recovery time after a non-surgical facelift. You may experience minor swelling or bruising, which typically fades rapidly as the products settle within the skin tissues. You may want to take the rest of the day off but can return to normal activities immediately after your treatment. Avoid touching, scratching, or massaging your face, so the products do not migrate. The smoothing effect of BOTOX will begin to appear in three to four days, while the effects of dermal fillers appear immediately. Some swelling could occur, which will soon fade. Avoid vigorous exercise and excessive heat for 24 hours, and do not lie down for four hours after your treatment.
