What is a non-surgical face lift and how does it compare to a traditional surgical face lift? 
The term “non-surgical face lift” has become very popular phrase in the aesthetics and cosmetic area. A traditional facelift is composed of surgical techniques to trim off excess skin and reposition tissues and muscles of the face. In some cases it is combined with fat transfers or implants to replace facial volume lost during the aging process. Non-surgical face lifts have become popular because many people do not want to experience the downtime and potential complications of a surgical procedure.
