3 Minute Read: 

People who are interested in facial rejuvenation now have plenty of options to choose from. The first step is to decide if you would prefer a surgical or nonsurgical procedure. While both subsets are designed to restore healthy, youthful, and glowing skin, they work very differently, and some may be better suited to your needs than others.

This guide takes you through all your facial rejuvenation options, so you are better equipped to decide.

Benefits of a Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

The main types of surgical facial rejuvenation include a facelift, eyelid surgery, and brow lift. Surgical options are typically best to correct more severe levels of excess skin. Unlike nonsurgical treatments, surgical procedures can remove and tighten more significant amounts of skin and tissue, making them better suited for those with higher degrees of laxity.


Facelift surgery removes excess skin and tightens the remaining tissues on the lower and midface to reduce the appearance of sagging skin. A traditional facelift involves incisions made on both sides of the face at the temple near the hairline that curve behind the earlobe. This smooths the jowls, reduces creases around the mouth, and restores cheek and midface position.

Eyelid Surgery

If your problem area is drooping eyelids or under-eye bags, you may consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Sagging eyelids can age you and obstruct your vision. An eyelid lift makes incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids to remove excess skin or fat. Patients are left with a much more youthful appearance and unobstructed vision.

Brow Lift

When you have loose skin and sagging muscles on your face, it can often cause wrinkles between the brows and the forehead. This gives people an older appearance with a “heavy” brow. Brow lift surgery looks to raise the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brow, resulting in a more gentle, younger-looking face.

Benefits of a Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation

The main types of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options include neuromodulators and dermal fillers. If you are not struggling with excessive sagging skin, you may prefer a nonsurgical approach.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® is an injectable neuromodulator most often used to minimize expression lines. If you are unhappy with your frown lines, forehead lines, or crow’s feet, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple solution. The injectable treatment temporarily immobilizes the muscles so that wrinkles cannot form. It is a quick fix that requires no recovery time.


Jeaveau® is similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic in purpose and application—and has even garnered the nickname “Newtox”—as it is an injectable neuromodulator used to minimize wrinkles and deep lines. Most often, Jeuveau® is used to reduce severe frown lines around the eyes and forehead. Many patients choose Jeuveau® as it is a cheaper alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Dermal Fillers

Injectables are much more adept at restoring volume in the face for a vibrant and younger-looking face. There are various brands of dermal fillers, and while they are all designed to restore volume and lessen facial depressions caused by the aging process, they are made up of different chemical formulas. Some of the most popular formulas are JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, hyaluronic acid injectables that restore volume and hydration to facial contours.
