Facelifts: Traditional and Mini Techniques

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and tighten sagging facial skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. While there are various facelift techniques available, the two most popular options are the traditional facelift and the mini-facelift.

Traditional facelift: This comprehensive procedure addresses moderate to severe signs of aging in the lower two-thirds of the face and neck, targeting deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of muscle tone. A traditional facelift typically involves the removal of excess skin, tightening of underlying facial muscles, and repositioning of tissues to achieve a smooth, youthful contour. While highly effective, a full facelift may require a more extended recovery period due to the extensive nature of the surgery.

Mini-facelift: A less invasive option, the mini-facelift focuses on addressing early signs of aging, such as mild sagging and wrinkles in the lower face and jawline. With smaller incisions and less tissue manipulation, a mini-facelift can still provide significant rejuvenating effects with reduced downtime and lower risk of complications.

Dermal Fillers: From Juvederm to Sculptra

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive injectables that offer a non-surgical solution for restoring lost volume, smoothing out wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours. Some of the most popular dermal fillers include:

Juvederm: As a hyaluronic acid-based filler, Juvederm is designed to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Juvederm can also be used for lip augmentation and cheek contouring, providing an overall more youthful and subtly enhanced appearance.

Sculptra: Containing poly-L-lactic acid, this biocompatible and biodegradable filler stimulates collagen production, gradually restoring facial volume and softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Sculptra is well-suited for treating nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, and other age-related volume loss.

Each dermal filler comes with its unique set of benefits and can be strategically used to target specific aging concerns. Through a personalized consultation, Dr. Schreiber will help you determine the most suitable filler type and treatment plan based on your desired outcomes.

Injectables: The Power of Botox

Botox is an injectable treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle movements. Made from a purified form of botulinum toxin, Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve signals that trigger muscle contractions, effectively smoothing dynamic wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

The effects of Botox injections are typically noticeable within 3 to 7 days, with results lasting for approximately 3 to 6 months. As a minimally invasive procedure with virtually no downtime, Botox is a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.

Combining Treatments for Optimal Results

While each facial rejuvenation technique has its benefits, Dr. Schreiber may recommend combining treatments to achieve optimal outcomes tailored to your unique needs and goals. For instance, Botox injections can be used in tandem with dermal fillers to address both dynamic wrinkles and volume loss for a comprehensive, youthful transformation. Similarly, a mini-facelift may be paired with Sculptra injections to lift sagging skin while simultaneously fostering collagen production and overall facial rejuvenation.

By discussing your desires, expectations, and concerns during the consultation process, Dr. Schreiber will devise a customized treatment plan that incorporates various rejuvenation methods in a harmonious and synergistic manner.


The journey towards facial rejuvenation is a personal and transformative one. Whether you are considering surgical interventions, such as a facelift or mini-facelift, or non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers and Botox, exploring your options and understanding their benefits is an essential step in achieving a revitalized and refreshed appearance.
