Surgical Facelift vs. Non-Surgical Options

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


A facelift is not your only option for achieving your aesthetic goals. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York City, we offer you a wide variety of procedures from which you can choose. We believe you should undergo the procedure that is right for you and which will help you find the look you desire.

When a Facelift is Appropriate

A facelift is the most extensive option we offer for facial rejuvenation. While it’s a commonly performed procedure with an excellent safety record, it is still surgery, which means a decision to undergo a facelift is serious.

A facelift is probably your best option when you:

  • Have prominent jowls you want to get rid of
  • Are trying to eliminate sagging skin and fat, especially leading to a less defined chin
  • Have very deep skin folds producing thick lines around the nose and mouth
  • Have up to two weeks available for recovery

We’ll answer all of your facelift questions and make sure the procedure is right for you. Using our top-flight technology and decades of experience, we’ll be able to make sure your facelift experience is as safe and pleasant as possible.

What Laser Skin Treatments Can Do For You

If you’re looking for more of a “touch-up” in New York City, non-surgical options such as laser treatments may be right for you. With laser skin tightening and laser skin resurfacing we offer you low-risk, simple methods for addressing some subtle signs of aging.

  • Laser skin tightening: By stimulating your body’s natural healing process, laser skin tightening treatment can eliminate areas of loose and excess skin on your face. You’ll have firmer, tighter skin.
  • Laser skin resurfacing: With laser skin resurfacing, we can not only tighten loose skin, we can also eliminate age spots, sun damage, wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Laser treatments are simple and quick, with minimal discomfort or recovery time. However, you will need to come in for repeated treatments to see ideal results.

Injectable Options

Finally, you have the option of choosing among various injectables. With a quick series of small injections we can use these injectable fillers to restore youth and vitality to the worn and aged areas of your face.

Among your options for facial injectables are:
