Which Is Right For Me: Botox or a Facelift?

Looking for a safe and effective cosmetic skin treatment? From Botox and Juvederm to customized surgical facelifts, we have everything you need at our Edmonton clinic to restore your youthful appearance and enhance your natural beauty. 

Cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatments are a common, effective, and time-tested way to reduce signs of aging. 

They address issues including :

  • Sagging skin
  • Unwanted wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loss of volume
  • Age spots

Despite the proven benefits of surgical anti-ageing treatments such as facelifts, more and more patients are turning towards non-surgical procedures such as Botox and Juvederm.

Customized Anti-Aging Treatments at our Edmonton Clinic

Dr. Ladak offers fully customized anti-ageing treatments, from facelifts to skin treatments such as tissue fillers and Botox, to help you safely and successfully achieve all your aesthetic goals.

Botox: An Innovative Anti-Aging Skin Treatment

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As you get older, your skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic, leading to creases and lines on your face. Botox is one of the most popular and minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation skin treatments and can be used to treat a number of ageing concerns including:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Lip lines

How does it work? Botox is designed to relax the facial muscles which cause dynamic wrinkles, providing your skin with a chance to smooth out naturally. (Want to learn more? Check out our post on BOTOX 101.)

How soon will I see the results? While you will notice instant changes to your skin, you will be able to enjoy the full benefits of a Botox treatment within 1-2 weeks of your treatment.

How long will the Botox results last? The results of Botox are long lasting but not permanent and a treatment is required every 3-4 months.

Is there a recovery time for this treatment? One of the biggest benefits of this skin treatment is that it requires no downtime so you can squeeze an appointment in even on a busy day.

Botox Myths


When Non-Surgical Skin Treatments Aren’t Enough

As beneficial as skin treatments such as Botox and tissue fillers are, and despite their lower risks and costs, sometimes a facelift is a better option for achieving facial rejuvenation. This is particularly true for patients whose wrinkles are more pronounced, usually due to age.

What is a facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, improves the loose skin of the neck, the jaw line, deeper wrinkle lines and the corners of the mouth. It is also recommended for patients who want long-lasting anti-ageing results.


Which is Better: Facelift or Botox?

The decision regarding which cosmetic surgery or skin treatment to choose is unique to each patient. Which procedure is right for you will depend on many factors including:

  • Your age
  • Your appearance
  • The severity of your cosmetic concerns
  • The time you are able to spend recovering
  • Financial considerations
  • Your general health

During an in-depth consultation, your plastic surgeon can discuss your needs, aesthetic goals, and medical history to better determine whether a facelift or Botox skin treatment is the right choice for you.
