Best Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures for Face 2023

Best Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures for Face 2023

There is an increasing popularity of non-surgical cosmetic procedures for the face in 2023, as many people opt to rejuvenate their natural beauty and features rather than change their whole appearance. 

Receiving a non-surgical procedure, such as Botox, fillers, Dysport, chemical peels, or laser treatments, can boost your self-confidence, enhance your appearance, and address specific aging concerns on the face, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage.

Botox Injections 

Neuromodulator injections are a non-invasive treatment injected into your muscle with a thin needle, blocking signals to your nerves that cause the muscles to move and contract. Neuromodulators are often used to relax wrinkles in areas of the face such as the forehead, smile lines, in-between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. 

Botox can also treat lazy eyes, excessive sweating, migraines, and many other conditions. Botox requires no downtime and is a painless treatment. 

The benefits of Neuromodulators include:

  1. Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  2. Fixing lazy eyes, neck spasms, hyperhidrosis, and bladder issues.
  3. Preventing chronic migraines.

Some side effects you may experience after receiving neuromodulator injections include: 

  1. Swelling 
  2. Bruising
  3. Tenderness
  4. Headache
  5. Flu-like symptoms
  6. Drooping 

Please call your doctor if you experience muscle weakness, trouble speaking or swallowing, vision problems, loss of bladder control, or trouble breathing. 

The anti-aging effects of Botox usually last around 3-4 months, and your results may last longer after your second treatment.

Dermal Fillers 

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical injection that can treat and improve the look of different facial concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss, thin lips, and nose asymmetry. Dermal filler injections are made just under the skin, and there are many kinds of fillers, including fillers with Hyaluronic acid (Restylane or Juvederm), fillers with calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse), soft tissue fillers (Bellafill), and fillers with Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra).

The benefits of dermal fillers include:

  1. Reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Improvement of sagging skin.
  3. Restoring collagen production.
  4. Hydrating, softening, and increasing volume in desired areas.

This treatment requires no downtime and can be performed in an hour or less.

Some risks of dermal fillers include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching

Dermal fillers can last for as little as 6 months or as long as 5 years – depending on the type of filler you choose to receive. Restylane and Juvederm are the most sought-after fillers, as the natural compound they contain aids in collagen production.



Dr. Pavlou’s groundbreaking TiredEye™ treatment provides patients with a refreshed and revitalized appearance by restoring volume and youth to their under-eyes. As we age, our skin loses vital elasticity and collagen production decreases, leading to the formation of dark, hollowed areas beneath the eyes. 

During his consultations, Dr. Pavlou carefully formulates a bespoke plan that takes into account each patient’s individual needs, using dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, Belotero and Revanesse®  in the targeted areas for maximum effect. By doing so, Dr. Pavlou is able to rejuvenate the eye area with remarkable results, leaving his patients looking more youthful and vibrant than ever before.

The benefits of TiredEye™ include:

  1. Restore volume and vibrance to the under-eye area.
  2. Give a rested appearance. 
  3. Correct dark circles.
  4. Rejuvenate the entire eye area.

This treatment requires no downtime and can be performed in 30 minutes or less.

Some risks of TiredEye™ include:

  1. Bruising
  2. Redness
  3. Swelling
  4. Tenderness

TiredEye™ can last for months to years depending on the product used. 

Chemical Peels 

A chemical peel is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that improves skin texture and appearance. These peels use a chemical solution that is applied to the skin and then gently remove the skin’s outermost layer, resulting in youthful, glowing skin with fewer fine lines, improved texture and tone, and minimized scarring. Depending on your concerns and severity, you can receive a glycolic peel or a salicylic acid peel.

Some risks of chemical peels include:

  1. Changes in skin tone
  2. Redness
  3. Swelling
  4. Infection
  5. Scarring

However, side effects are very rare – especially when you are in the hands of an experienced team of clinicians. Light peels produce results that last 1-2 months, medium peels give results that last 2-6 months, and deep peels results last forever. 

Laser Resurfacing 

Laser resurfacing can either be performed with an ablative laser or a non-ablative laser. Ablative lasers provide a deeper treatment that can reduce the look of moderate wrinkles, scarring, and skin discolouration. You will need 1-2 weeks of recovery time and may experience some discomfort during your recovery.

Non-ablative lasers improve skin texture and tone and can treat fine lines and pigmentation issues. You may require multiple treatments to see significant results, but your recovery will be mild (some redness and swelling), and there is no downtime. 

Some benefits of laser resurfacing include:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines.
  • Improving complexion.
  • Evening out skin tone.
  • Treating minor scarring and sun damage.

Some side effects of laser resurfacing include:

  • Redness.
  • Swelling.
  • Acne. 
  • Infection.
  • Change in skin tone.
  • Scarring.

Once you have healed, results for non-ablative laser resurfacing can last for months, and ablative laser resurfacing results can last for years.


JowlFix™ is a combination treatment that lifts and contours the chin, neck and jawline while restoring and rebuilding collagen to prevent and repair sagging skin. This combination treatment was made by Dr. Pavlou himself, the founder of Skin Technique.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift sagging skin by repairing and rebuilding collagen and elastin in the chin, neck and jawline. Our Jawline Enhancement uses dermal filler to reshape and contour a jawline that has started to sag, resulting in jowls. The dermal filler restores lost volume and adds definition and structure to the jawline.

By combining two innovative treatments, Ultherapy and our Jawline Enhancement, we get the ultimate JowlFix™️. The JowlFix™ procedure takes 1-2 hours and is performed either via a dermal filler (droplet injection or cannula) or Ultherapy (ultrasound technology). You may experience mild to moderate discomfort, but there is no recovery time, and your results will last for months to years, depending on the product used. 


MystLift™ is a trademark treatment performed by Dr. Pavlou to provide his patients with an instant, more rejuvenated and rested version of themselves. Patients will not be unrecognizable but rather appear refreshed and recharged from eliminating a tired appearance.

Dr. Pavlou first consults with his patients, mapping out a customized plan to achieve the best results. He then uses a combination of anti-wrinkle injections, carefully combined with dermal filler injections. Fillers deliver hyaluronic acid to the treatment areas to restore volume to aging, sagging skin.  

Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily relax specific muscles, contributing to a strained or tired appearance. This prevents lines from forming and even diminishes existing wrinkles.

MystLift™ is used to treat:

  • Volume loss.
  • Fine lines.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Aging skin.
  • A fatigued, tired appearance.

The procedure time for MystLift™ is 30-45 minutes and is performed via droplet injection or cannula. No recovery time is required, there’s no pain and your results can last for months to years, depending on the product used.
