Non-Surgical Face Lift

The Philosophy of Beauty team specializes in non-invasive face-lift procedures. If you thought costly surgery and lengthy recovery times were necessary for a toned, lifted, youthful appearance, we have good news for you.

Philosophy of Beauty invites you to schedule your personalized consultation with one of our medical experts today.

A Non-surgical facelift is a transformational treatment that utilizes laser technology to elevate facial appearance. By repositioning the brow, cheek, jowl, and neck areas without the use of a scalpel, stitches, or scars, the non-surgical facelift procedure helps restore the natural contours of the face. With these procedures, results are reliably natural and youthful looking, with no painful recovery period.

Due to the effects of time and gravity, your skin will lose structural collagen, elasticity and firmness. Skin cell turnover slows as we age, and wrinkles begin to appear.  The non-surgical facelift at Philosophy of Beauty is designed to benefit the deeper, medial, and superficial supportive structures of the skin, while simultaneously targeting various skin surface imperfections.

Toronto’s best non-surgical face-lift procedures contour the face, plump, and tighten the skin, and smooth out the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and creases- all with one powerful, versatile laser. Since the procedures are non-invasive, these popular treatments are known for producing immediate results without the recovery time or cost related to a traditional surgical face-lift.

At Philosophy of Beauty, the Fotona SP Dynamis laser (4D) is our go-to for non-surgical facelift treatments. The Fotona 4D Laser Facelift is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure, which produces immediate and ongoing results.

This laser is non-invasive, non-ablative, and is used in the comfort of our medical clinic to restore a more youthful appearance to the facial and neck areas where ageing tends to cause the most visible changes.

The Fotona 4D Laser Facelift Treatment lifts, tightens, plumps, improves skin texture, and provides wrinkle reduction on the skin with the use of 4 unique laser modes: SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO®, and SupErficial™.

Step 1:

The first step of the treatment involves a laser rejuvenation process delivered intraorally, (inside the mouth.) This multidimensional approach allows us to treat large areas of your face and jowl area from the inside as well as the outside- multiplying the tightening effects. When the oral cavity is tightened, the result is tighter skin around the nasolabial folds, melomental folds, (the lines from nose to lips, and lips to chin), as well as restored lip volume and smoothness. This part of the treatment is called SMOOTH® and is ideal for those who want to achieve immediate results that continue to improve over the subsequent weeks after treatment.

Step 2:

In the second step, the FRAC3®, fractionated laser mode is used, which targets the surface and deeper layers of the skin, to minimize imperfections. This mode treats uneven skin pigmentation as well as sunspots and lesions in the superficial layers of the skin. 

FRAC3®, also tightens the skin and induces thermal heat which stimulates neocollagenesis meaning that new collagen and elastin growth is stimulated.

Step 3:

The third step involves the use of the ND:YAG fractionated laser which heats the deep layers of the dermis, beginning the process of strengthening soft, facial support structures. During this step, known as PIANO® mode, collagen production is stimulated which tightens and remodels the skin from the inside out. Because PIANO mode does not cause high initial temperature peaks in the epidermis, it is the safest mode for reaching deeper skin tissues without harming the cells it passes through. That means no uncomfortable overheating or tissue damage to contend with during recovery.

Step 4:

The fourth and final step, known as the SupErficial™ step is the resurfacing laser peel, which brightens and tones the skin. This involves a light cold ablation that gives a pearl-like finish to the skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size are reduced during this finishing touch which enhances the overall skin tone and texture. Your makeup will go on smooth and flawless, but then, you may no longer need any!

The process is pain-free and serves to rejuvenate the delicate tissues at each layer of facial tissue. Patients describe the entire process as relaxing with subtle warming sensations experienced at different stages. The procedure does not require sedation or anesthesia. However, a topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure client comfort.

The effectiveness of a non-surgical facelift depends to an extent, on individual skin types as well as existing collagen levels. Usually, those who have mild to moderate facial laxity, experience the best outcomes.

For those who are concerned with more extensive facial wrinkling, atrophic skin, (severe sagging), and severe collagen loss, an individual approach with some modification of the procedure is required.

Those who have had fillers may also benefit from a non-surgical facelift, however, it is recommended that they wait 2 weeks after their last injection before undergoing the procedure.

The standard procedure usually takes about 90 minutes for each, relaxing session, after which you may return to normal daily activities.

Although there is no downtime or bruising associated with the treatment, some patients experience a sensation of warmth or mild pinching during various modes of treatment. After your procedure is complete, it is normal to experience some temporary redness on the treated area and this is an expected part of the process, indicating the effectiveness of the treatment. For 1-2 days after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink followed by mild peeling. 

Post-treatment, some skin sensitivity is expected, therefore it is highly recommended that patients utilize a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher. Patients may resume wearing makeup 1-2 days following the procedure.

For best anti-ageing results, the non-surgical facelift is recommended as a series of 4 treatments, scheduled 4 weeks apart. Your skin requires time to gradually restructure and turn over new cells.

Although most people notice some immediate improvement after their very first procedure, we can build on your results with each additional treatment. Even after the series is completed, for up to 9-10 months, collagen and elastin will go on regenerating and your results will get better and better each day.

After a series of treatments is complete, the results will last for about 1-2 years during which time the collagen regeneration will slow down. At this point, scheduling a follow-up treatment will help to maintain your lifted, toned skin in the long term.

We are as excited as our patients about the many benefits of a non-surgical facelift procedure. Some of these include:

  • Tighter and smoother skin without undergoing surgery
  • Restoration of facial volume to diminish nasolabial folds
  • Lifting of the cheeks and corners of the mouth
  • Results often seen instantly, with no downtime
  • Volumization of thinning skin
  • Restoration of facial contours
  • Lift of sagging eyebrows
  • Replenishing collagen levels by stimulating collagen production
  • Reducing pigmentation
  • Removing sun damage
  • Accelerating the skin’s healing process
  • Reducing acne scars
  • Reduced financial cost and complication risks compared with invasive facelift surgery.

PicoWay Laser Toning at Philosophy of Beauty is a fabulous way to even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of pores, lighten acne scars, and more. It uses painless, ultra-short pulses of light to treat the surface layers of skin where pigmentation issues collect over time.  We love Pico lasers because they don’t cause excessive heating of epidermal layers, but the results can be dramatic. 

When the effects of time, sunlight, and environmental damage have left your skin spotted, blotchy or dull looking, the combination of deep lifting and targeted pigment lightening can reveal a completely rejuvenated complexion.
