What is Non-Surgical Facelift
The shape of your face says a lot about your age. Mainly because of the changes that occur as we get older.
Volume is one factor that can alter face shape quite significantly. It can also cause the skin to sag and the eyes and cheeks to hollow. Volume loss can make the face look more square, especially when jowl formation occurs. Research shows that a heart-shaped face looks the most attractive on a woman, while a square or oval face shape is more attractive on a man.
Where facelifts were once the only solution for altering the shape of the face, today, there are a number of non-surgical options available too. The fact that these non-surgical procedures require little to no recovery is just one of the reasons why they’ve become a popular choice.
Areas such as the cheeks, nose, eyes and lips can all be altered to improve the contours and proportions of the face. All without the need for a general anaesthetic or major incisions.
What to Expect
Before considering a non-surgical facelift, an in-depth consultation will be required so that a personalised treatment plan can be created. These are the treatments that can be included in your non-surgical facelift:
Anti-wrinkle injections prevent facial expressions from causing deep grooves and wrinkles that leave you with an angry, tired or aged appearance. To achieve this, the muscles that are responsible for forming facial expressions are injected. Over the course of the next few days, these muscles relax, which smooths out the skin in that area. It also prevents the formation of new expression lines going forward.
Dermal filler injections address volume loss and plump up the areas of the face that are prone to the effects of ageing. The injections contain hyaluronic acid, which bonds with water molecules and revolumises the face. The eyes, lips and cheeks are the areas that benefit the most from dermal fillers. Several injections are administered into the areas that require more volume and the results are instant.

Fat formation underneath the chin is another change that occurs with age. However, fat-dissolving injections can be used to improve your profile. During your facelift, the excess pockets of fat are injected with a blend of specialised ingredients. These ingredients gradually breakdown the unwanted fat, which is then naturally eliminated from the body. The only way this fat would return is if you gain excess weight later on.
Thread lifts use temporary sutures to create a visible lift without the need for incisions. Once the threads have been suspended underneath the skin, it creates a subtle lifting and tightening effect. In addition to this, the threads also activate the body’s natural healing response, which increases collagen production. This provides long-term benefits and ensures your skin looks and feels healthier and more supple for months to come.
To further enhance the effects of your non-surgical facelifts, we also offer Ultherapy treatments. This device uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production and gradually tighten the skin. As high-frequency sound waves are absorbed by the epidermal layer of the skin, it starts rejuvenating the skin cells and tissue from the inside out.

Ideal Candidates for Non-Surgical Facelifts
Non-surgical facelifts are ideal for anyone who is experiencing the common signs of ageing and wants to address them without surgery. Severe forms of ageing won’t be as visibly reduced as minor to mild signs of ageing. The treatments that can be included in a non-surgical facelift have little to no side effects. This means it’s ideal for almost anyone. However, your medical history and your specific concerns will need to be discussed during your consultation. Your skin will also need to be evaluated before treatment options can be recommended.
Non-Surgical Facelift Results
The results of a non-surgical facelift will differ for everyone. Not only do the results depend on which treatments you’ve chosen to include but how your skin and body respond too. Some results will be immediate, such as those produced by dermal fillers and thread lifts. Other treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and Ultherapy treatments will produce results gradually. Some of the effects of a non-surgical facelift can last up to two years, while others last several months. Your tailored treatment plan will include top-up sessions for specific treatments that will help you to maintain your results.
