introduction to

non-surgical facelift

The idea of looking young forever seems somewhat mythical, but unlike unicorns and fairies, facial rejuvenation is obtainable. The plastic surgery community has always had the Facelift as a viable option to “turn back the clock”, however, the recovery time and cost of a traditional Facelift can be daunting for a lot of patients. The good news is that thanks to the help of Dermal Fillers, Vickram Tandon, MD offers our Boston patients the Non-Surgical Facelift as a significantly more affordable, yet still effective, option. To learn more about this treatment, please keep reading below!

What Is A Non-Surgical Facelift?

A Non-Surgical Facelift, often referred to as a Liquid Facelift due to the dermal filler and injectables that are used, is a very minimally invasive alternative to the traditional surgical Facelift. The treatment allows for full-facial rejuvenation by diminishing or correcting problems such as drooping eyebrows, dark under-eye circles, sunken areas from under the eyes to the cheek, frown lines, flat cheeks, weak chin, jowls, jawline hollows, and scars.


Every product used is FDA-approved and by using a strategic combination of both dermal fillers and injectables, Dr. Tandon can help you achieve long-lasting and natural facial results.


Some of the more common areas of treatment include:

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Non-Surgical Facelift?

You could be a great candidate for a Boston Liquid Facelift if you are:


  • At an age where you don’t “need” a Facelift, but are showing signs of aging (usually between 35 and 50 years old)
  • Interested in alternatives to surgical procedures
  • Have loose facial skin and wrinkles
  • Lost facial volume
  • Maintain a positive mentality with realistic expectations
  • Possess mildly sagging or hollowed skin

What To Expect On The Day Of Non-Surgical Facelift?

Your Non-Surgical Facelift is performed right here in our office, so once you come in for your treatment, we will make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed in one of our reclining treatment chairs. We will apply a topical anesthetic to the areas being treated to numb your face for a more comfortable experience.


As you’re waiting for the anesthetic to begin working, Dr. Tandon may begin plotting the injection points out with tiny marks. Next, he will begin strategically injecting specific amounts of the dermal filler chosen during your consultation using a syringe with a very fine needle. He will assess each injection, only adding more filler if necessary.


After the filler has been injected, the treated areas will be gently massaged so that the filler is evenly distributed. Once finished, your face will be gently cleaned off of any markings and you will be offered an ice pack to lightly apply to your face so any excessive swelling or bruising will be minimized.

Most Liquid Facelift patients find any pain associated with the treatment to be minimal if any at all. Before the injections are made, the treated areas will be numbed with a local anesthetic to help reduce any discomfort. There is a slight pinch or sting during the injection, but it usually lasts only a few seconds. After the procedure, patients may experience some mild swelling or redness, but it typically subsides within a few days and can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.

Most patients will only need one session to achieve results from their Non-Surgical Facelift. Once the filler finds its resting position, you should be able to enjoy the new look for about eight months, with some patients getting almost two years’ worth of stunning results.


There have been instances in which a patient might require additional treatment for the best results. This can be for a variety of reasons, but specifically in rare instances where the filler and injectable don’t “stick” and your body naturally absorbs some of it.

You should be able to see almost instant results following your Non-Surgical Facelift, but please keep in mind that you will also experience some swelling and redness along with potential bruising. After a few days, these reactions should subside and you will be able to notice your full results.

Of course! Many of our Boston Non-Surgical Facelift patients will often combine their treatment with other non-surgical cosmetic enhancements such as CO₂ Laser Resurfacing, RF Microneedling, or Lip Fillers. Regardless of what your aesthetic goals are, please feel free to discuss them with Dr. Tandon during your consultation and he will be happy to offer his expertise in suggesting some wonderful options for you.

Liquid Facelifts are generally safe, but some common risks are associated with them, such as:


  • Bruising
  • Bumps or lumps from the filler
  • Itching or mild skin rash
  • Minor pain, particularly when smiling or laughing
  • Redness
  • Soreness
  • Swelling


Some additional, but much rare side effects include:


  • Allergic reactions
  • Cysts or abscesses
  • Necrosis of the skin
  • Herpes simplex virus (HSV)
  • Bacterial infections, including strep or staph infections


Please call our office immediately if you have an allergic reaction or flu-like symptoms after your non-surgical facelift.
