Injectable fillers have evolved since the early 2000s: Both Juvederm and Restylane products are currently available in a variety of consistencies suited to different applications, including facial volume enhancement, feature contouring, and skin smoothing. Rather than just filling individual wrinkles, in the hands of a skilled injector like Dr. Deborah Sherman, these compounds can now reshape and rejuvenate the entire face.
At our state-of-the-art clinic in Nashville, Tennessee, we’ve developed a personalized dermal filler treatment plan we call the “Master Lift.” The Master Lift utilizes multiple injectables to lift and revitalize the face without a single surgical incision being made. Like facelift surgery, this procedure addresses the deeper structural issues that contribute to facial aging, but it won’t cause scarring or discomfort. You’ll enjoy a fresh, rested look without the downtime associated with surgery.
Many of our patients at Sherman Aesthetic Center choose us for our wide range of options when it comes to non-surgical anti-aging and skin care treatments. Medical and health limitations may rule out surgery as an option for some, and plenty of research also shows many people simply don’t want surgery in their quest to age gracefully.
If surgery isn’t part of your facelift treatment plan, explore your non-surgical facelift options with Dr. Deborah Sherman at Sherman Aesthetic Center. We use a combination of the latest dermal filler products, injectables such as Kybella®, and photo rejuvenation treatments to give results that are similar to more invasive facelift surgeries.

About the Master Lift Non-Surgical Treatment Plan
When you look in the mirror, it’s easy to pick out a flaw or wrinkle that bothers you, like the “parenthesis” or “marionette” lines around your mouth. You see the wrinkle or line and want to directly fix it. In the past, many cosmetic surgeons took a similar approach when working with fillers; they would locate a specific crease and inject hyaluronic acid filler into it, thereby smoothing out the wrinkle. However, while that technique worked temporarily, it didn’t produce the natural-looking, long-lasting results patients really wanted.
Addressing lines (rather than looking at the face as a whole) lends to under-treating the problem. Over-filling specific lines can also create an unnatural appearance, especially when your face moves with expression. Ultimately, it leads to a less-than-optimal outcome and a dissatisfied patient!
To fully revitalize your face, you need a treatment plan that’s more than skin-deep:
Though the symptoms of facial aging often manifest as superficial lines, creases, and folds, these issues actually originate within the tissues that support the face. Replacing facial volume that’s been lost over time, giving the cheeks adequate support, and sculpting specific features (like the lips and nose) is necessary to create a youthful appearance while preserving the face’s flexibility and unique character.
Thanks to scientific advances and Dr. Sherman’s leadership in global training sessions, we now offer a unique and exclusive approach that produces these superior outcomes: The Master Lift. The Master Lift is a next-generation approach to injectables that treats and lifts the face holistically, instead of just focusing on “the cracks.”
The Master Lift achieves full correction over a series of filler treatments, starting with rebuilding the foundation of your face, then addressing contour, and, lastly, refining the details. (Think about building a house from the foundation up!). Thick, long-lasting fillers like Restylane Lyft or Juvederm Voluma XC are typically used to lift and scaffold the cheeks. Thinner fillers, like Restylane Refyne or Juvederm Vollure, may then be injected directly into remaining facial creases, while Restylane Silk provides an excellent solution for lines and volume loss around the lips. Dr. Sherman can also incorporate Botox into your treatment plan to smooth out frown lines or slim your jaw.
What to Expect When You Start Your Master Lift Treatment Plan
Prior to your Master Lift, Dr. Sherman will perform a three-dimensional analysis of your face to identify what’s causing your specific cosmetic concerns. For example, your deep nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose down to your mouth) may be the result of a cheek that has fallen, thereby creating heaviness in the lower face. If this is the case, instead of injecting directly into the fold, Dr. Sherman will address your sagging cheek first. Lifting your cheek will soften the parentheses around your mouth in a subtle, natural way.
Once Dr. Sherman has gained a thorough understanding of your facial anatomy, she’ll mark your planned injection sites with a felt-tipped pen and numb your skin with a local anesthetic. Then, she’ll perform a series of quick, painless injections using a fine needle. To minimize discomfort, the Master Lift is usually performed over a series of 3-4 treatments.

How Can I Get a Facelift Without Surgery?
At Sherman Aesthetic Center, we begin each non-surgical facelift with a thorough consultation to look at the unique conditions that are making your face look years older. The most common reason for wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin is a loss of volume due to the natural aging process. In the past, this was almost always addressed with cosmetic surgery, especially in the lower third of the face.
The complexities of the surgical facelift have led to the development of a whole new line of products and technologies. The non-surgical facelift not only treats the loss of volume, but age spots and skin discoloration as well.
Non-Surgical Facelift Options at Sherman Aesthetic Center
At our practice, we develop a custom treatment plan for every patient based on their goals. Age-related skin discoloration and collagen and elastin loss impact each face differently. Our goal is to figure out how to use the best combination treatments and tools available to rejuvenate and sculpt your unique bone structure and musculature. We also strive to provide long-lasting results.
We approach your non-surgical facelift strategy from three angles:
Injectables: A range of cosmetic injectable products such as Botox®, dermal fillers, and Kybella® may be used during your non-surgical facelift. Each has their own unique application that can help you achieve anti-aging results.
- Botox®: This is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables in the world. It works by temporarily causing muscles in the face to stop contracting, which smoothes skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines.
- Facial fillers: Also called dermal fillers or soft-tissue fillers, facial fillers use a variety of ingredients, including hyaluronic acid (HA), to restore facial volume and draw moisture to important areas where it can be retained. Rejuvenate and hydrate your face with these popular and safe products.
- Kybella®: Those frustrated with double chins—also known as submental fat—get good results with Kybella. This deoxycholic acid permanently destroys fat cells in targeted areas. Your body’s own metabolic process removes the dead cells naturally.
Photo rejuvenation: Discoloration and hyperpigmentation can be among the trickiest signs of aging to treat. While shelves of creams and other beauty products claim to do the job, most who have tried them just end up frustrated. We use a series of laser photo rejuvenation treatments to help improve sun damage, age spots, brown spots, redness, and facial veins. In addition to reducing discoloration, laser photo rejuvenation can also help your facial skin pull tighter, so it looks smoother and healthier.
Skin resurfacing: The hallmark of youth is facial skin that is smooth, evenly textured, and tight. During your non-surgical facelift, we can help you regain your youthful, smooth skin with medical microdermabrasion and chemical peels—two safe, effective skin resurfacing methods.
Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Facelifts in Nashville
What makes someone a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift?
If you’re bothered by the signs of facial aging—such as lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, hollowed areas, uneven coloration, or a double chin—but aren’t ready for the discomfort and downtime of facial surgery, our Master Lift non-surgical facelift may be just what you’re looking for. The best candidates are in good health, do not smoke, and are committed to maintaining healthy skin. Kybella® treatments are most effective on a double chin caused by genetic factors rather than excess body fat.
Can a non-surgical facelift tighten facial skin?
Yes. Facial fillers add volume to areas of the face where subdermal fat has thinned and can have the effect of smoothing skin that appears to have loosened. Laser photo rejuvenation and skin resurfacing can tighten mildly to moderately lax facial skin by stimulating the production of collagen.
Will I need downtime for recovery?
You won’t need downtime for recovery after a non-surgical facelift. That’s one of the great advantages of the treatment when compared with a surgical facelift. You may have some redness and swelling for a few days near the injection sites and over any areas treated with a chemical peel, but nothing that should cause you to stay home. After your Master Lift treatment, you’ll be able to get right back to your normal activities.
When will I see the results of my liquid facelift in Nashville?
The results of facial fillers will be visible immediately and will improve over the next few days as any swelling or redness disappears. Botox® injections usually take about three days to show their effects.
How long do the results of a non-surgical facelift last?
Different elements in a non-surgical facelift last for different lengths of time. The long-lasting facial fillers used in the Master Lift treatment usually needed to be refreshed after about a year. Botox® treatments typically need to be repeated every few months. The fat cells removed from under the chin with Kybella® injections are gone forever after treatment. If you maintain a stable weight, your double chin should never return.
