At Guerra Plastic Surgery Center, we understand that not all patients are interested in going under the knife. As a result, we are happy to offer non-surgical procedures that achieve fresh, rejuvenated, and tightened facial skin without having to break out the scalpel.
Several non-surgical facelifts require almost zero downtime (time to recuperate) and can erase five to ten years worth of fine lines and wrinkles. It is important to note that when we age, gravity takes a toll on our skin, making it droop, sag, and lose the natural volume that perks up our facial features.
Sometimes, maintaining a youthful appearance requires more than investing thousands of dollars on the best anti-aging creams. Non-surgical facelifts have been revolutionized in the past five years, and by working with the right plastic surgeon, you can age as gracefully as ever.
Minimally Invasive Procedures, Fast Results
Facial skin tightening devices and injectable fillers are a widely popular procedure that can restore volume back to the face. You can even schedule an appointment with our very own Gail Gomez, RN, BSN during your lunch break, and your officemates will never know. That's how fast and easy it is.
It takes one appointment for both men and women to see a remarkable improvement in their skin. With the careful and strategic placement of dermal fillers, along with the appropriate use of muscle relaxants and facelift treatment agents, non-surgical skin tightening procedures can knock years off your age. They are also safe and quick to perform, all while making you look naturally radiant, youthful, and beautiful.
With the range of technologies and treatments available, you need not go under the knife to restore your youthful glow, even well into your 40’s and beyond.

1. Dysport and Botox
Dysport and Botox are the world's most commonly used non-surgical treatments, with over 4 million procedures performed in the U.S. in 2015. They are both a nontoxic protein injected into the muscle to ease contraction, and this temporary phase of relaxation prevents wrinkles from forming.
Dypsort and Botox injections smooth fine lines and wrinkles between the forehead, eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and other folds and creases in the upper face region. If you have stubborn loose skin creating banding in the neck, both of these products are an excellent solution.
You can see the results within three to seven days, or sometimes immediately after the procedure. Three to four months is the usual timeframe before you will need a follow-up procedure. Therefore, you will need ongoing treatments to prevent wrinkles from returning. If you have deeper lines, it may take two or more treatments to achieve your desired outcome.
Side effects are uncommon, though you may experience transient muscle weakness, along with redness, irritation, and swelling at the injection site. It is best to share with your doctor any hypersensitivities you may have to eliminate all possibilities of an allergic reaction.

2. Dermal Fillers
Dropping cheeks and excess skin below your chin or jawline (jowls) are caused by loss of facial volume, which can negatively impact your self-esteem. Dermal fillers can resolve this illusion of sagging skin without surgery, and as a result, return the fullness of your face.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, several different injectable fillers can be used, including:
● Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
● Semi-Permanent Fillers
● Collagen-Based Fillers
● Permanent Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is the most common type of filler, which is available in the form of Restylane and Juvederm, among others. It is the second most popular non-surgical option with more than 2 million procedures performed in the United States in 2015.
As a bonus Restylane Lyft dermal filler has been successfully used to treat the hands to restore volume and give a younger appearance. If you feel that you are rejuvenating your face and yet your hands look old then there is hope. Contact us today at 480-970-2580 to schedule Restylane Lyft of the hands.
3. Sculptra Facelift and Sculptra Butt Lift
Gail Gomez, RN, BSN, with her over 11 years of cosmetic injections, is proud to offer the latest advancements in Sculptra Facelift and Sculptra Butt Lift. Sculptra is a collagen stimulating product that works wonders to the face and buttocks area to increase volume to the face or body.
Gravity, genetics, the sun, and the natural aging process are natural culprits of sagging skin around the neck. If you have family members who have the dreaded turkey neck, the chances are that you are predisposed to develop the same problem. Luckily, there is a way to correct it without surgery. By injecting a newer fat-blasting remedy called Kybella, two to four treatments over a three- to four-month period should get the outcome you desire.
Like most non-surgical facelifts, the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. You may feel a tingling or stinging sensation in the injected area for a brief time, along with swelling and tenderness for a two to three-week period.
Are You a Suitable Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures if you:
● Are physically healthy
● Have a positive standpoint, as well as realistic goals in mind
You should also ask yourself a series of questions, including:
● Are your cheeks falling?
● Do you have frown or smile lines around your mouth?
● Are there lines and wrinkles around your forehead?
● Do you have jowls?
● Do you have hollowness under your eyes?
Non-surgical methods can easily remedy these problems. Once you determine your goals, talk to your doctor to decide which procedure will suit you best.
