Nonsurgical Facelift

In Washington, DC, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Houtan Chaboki specializes in designing non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedures, and one of his most popular is the nonsurgical facelift. People considering a facelift often choose this procedure when they're not quite ready for surgery, or to enhance the appearance of prior surgical results.

Dr. Chaboki can offer a nonsurgical solution that's customized to your needs – whether you are seeking to reduce wrinkles, restore facial fullness, or create a more youthful appearance. For example, you may want to fill out the hollows in your cheeks while smoothing away the wrinkles and lines around your mouth. Combining several of the minimally invasive options available can help you achieve your cosmetic goals while saving you time and money. Dr. Chaboki will determine whether nonsurgical options can give you the results you desire or you'll require a surgical facelift to address more significant sagging.

Nonsurgical Facelift Options

You feel energized and youthful in spirit – but your face may tell a different story. Gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, sun damage, stress, genetics, and other factors can result in lost facial volume, skin wrinkling and related concerns. These nonsurgical options can be performed quickly and often are combined with other med spa treatments to achieve an overall more youthful appearance:

Fat Transfer

This method of facial rejuvenation involves removing fat from one section of your body and then using the harvested fat to fill areas of your face that have lost volume, such as your cheeks, jaw line, or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds). Also known as liposculpture, this procedure provides a minimally invasive option for achieving a more youthful look.

Facial Fillers

Injectable fillers can restore lost volume to areas such as your cheeks as well as smooth out wrinkles. Bring back that youthful appearance with a facial filler such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, RADIESSE®, or Sculptra® Aesthetic:

  • JUVÉDERM is a hyaluronic acid gel that provides a way to restore your skin's hydration and volume, smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds and adding volume.
  • Restylane, also made of hyaluronic acid, is particularly effective for reducing folds and lines around your mouth, eyes, nose and forehead. It also can add definition.
  • BELOTERO BALANCE® replenishes your skin's natural hyaluronic acid to provide immediate and smooth improvement of facial lines, folds, and wrinkles. BELOTERO BALANCE integrates with your skin and unique facial contours.
  • RADIESSE restores the youthful radiance of your skin by stimulating collagen production, which enhances your skin's volume, strength, and elasticity. Benefits may last up to a year or more.
  • Sculptra Aesthetic corrects lost facial volume, such as hollowed cheeks, with a safe, synthetic injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid. Benefits appear gradually over 6 weeks following treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Ranking as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States, BOTOX Cosmetic can be combined with other nonsurgical facelift options to smooth out wrinkles in your forehead and crow's feet, as well as elevate drooping eyebrows. Some patients with extreme skin laxity in the upper eyelids may need eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).


Cosmetic injections of KYBELLA offer gradual neck fat reduction in the office without surgery. For patients with submental fullness, or a "double chin," who don't want surgery, KYBELLA is a quick procedure performed via local anesthesia that targets fat. Results develop gradually after several weeks. KYBELLA can be combined with other nonsurgical treatments, too, for an enhanced nonsurgical rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a nonsurgical facelift cost?

Each nonsurgical facelift is priced based on the specific products used during your procedure. During your consultation, we provide you with a written quote that accurately reflects the details of your nonsurgical facelift.

When will I be able to return to work?

If you undergo a nonsurgical facelift that uses only injectables, it's likely you'll be able to return to work the same day. Injectables typically don't require much downtime, even when they're administered in conjunction with each other. If your procedure involves fat transfer, you'll likely need a bit more downtime since that approach is slightly more invasive than a procedure that uses strictly injectables.

How long will my results last?

This depends on the exact nature of your procedure. While the results of a nonsurgical facelift aren't permanent, they can be prolonged by following Dr. Chaboki's aftercare instructions and practicing good skincare habits. During your consultation, Dr. Chaboki offers you a more specific idea of the results you can anticipate, as well as their longevity.
