The New Non-Surgical "Facial Face Lift" -- To Try or No Thanks?

A multi-step, non-invasive procedure is being heralded as the latest go-to anti-aging treatment

In the never-ending quest to keep Father Time's gnarly, gnarled hands far, far away from our faces, dermatologists, skin care companies and legions of folks in white lab coats work tirelessly to come up with the ultimate magic bullet.

One, Manhattan-based dermatologist, Debra Jaliman, is one such researcher who thinks she may have hit pay dirt. Administering what she calls the "Facial Rejuvenation" in her tony 5th Avenue office, Dr. Jaliman "stacks" several procedures-- including Botox and filler injections as well as the use of red light therapy -- into one $3,000 treatment to deliver what she calls, "A step-down face lift." And, as she explains in The New York Times, it can be even more effective than a traditional face lift because, they only "pull skin away from the face and lessen the appearance of wrinkles but don't add volume or contour."

Another fan of this everything-but-the-kitchen sink approach is Dr. Julius Few who, for more than a few dollars (i.e.5,000 of them), adds ultrasound and laser to the mix. "You're not doing a massive overhaul like you would
with a true face-lift, but rather strategic, controlled intervention that
has been tailor-made for you, he says.

Makes sense that procedures like this are quickly becoming all the rage -- after all, people are pinching pennies, scared to go under the knife and, what with the recent reveal that face lifts are over-rated to begin with, why bother?

Plus, as one of Dr. Jaliman's patients told the Times, the non-surgical facial options present another bonus; no down time. "I don't have to go into hiding for weeks," she says. "You can have the work done in the office, go home, look better and your husband or
boyfriend will never know you've done anything."

Sounds like a win/win. Now, if only I had an extra $3k lying around.
