A non-surgical facelift offers a rejuvenating solution for those seeking to turn back the clock without going under the knife. This procedure involves delivering a unique combination of cosmetic injectables into targeted facial tissues to smooth wrinkles, restore facial volume, reduce double chin, and more. Dr. Robert Guida offers various types of cosmetic injectables, such as neuromodulators, dermal fillers, Sculptra, and Kybella, to address different aspects of facial aging, like the loss of volume, submental fullness, and the onset of wrinkles.
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport are injectable substances that contain purified botulinum toxin type A. They work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to specific facial muscles, preventing them from contracting. This leads to a temporary reduction in muscle activity, which, in turn, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas like the forehead and around the eyes. Neuromodulators are a safe and effective non-surgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and achieving a more youthful appearance.
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (between eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
- Bunny lines (nose wrinkles)
- Lip lines (smoker’s lines)
- Chin creases (cobblestone chin)
- Neck bands (platysma bands)
Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic substances that restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. These treatments contain hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials that add volume and/or stimulate collagen production. Popular brands like Juvéderm, Restylane, Belotero Balance+, Revanesse Versa+, and RHA Fillers offer a range of options for addressing various concerns, from plumping lips to filling deep facial folds. Additionally, products like Radiesse provide longer-lasting results by stimulating collagen production.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production over time rather than providing immediate volume. This natural-looking volumizing treatment gradually improves skin elasticity and thickness, making it an effective choice for addressing facial sagging, wrinkles, and lost volume. The results can last up to two years, offering a long-lasting solution for individuals seeking a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance with a subtle, gradual transformation.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable designed to target and reduce submental fat, commonly known as a “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the chin area, Kybella effectively destroys fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline. It offers a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for individuals looking to achieve a slimmer and more youthful neck profile.
