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.
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.
Non-surgical Facelift Procedures
Here at Skin Confidence Clinic in Brisbane, we offer a wide range of procedures that can help address various ageing concerns. Before your treatment, we will conduct an in-depth consultation. This allows us to create a personalised treatment plan based on your needs. The following are some of the many procedures available at our clinic to give a non-surgical facelift effect:
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 moving forward.
Dermal filler injections
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 a hydrating substance found naturally in the body, which bonds with water molecules and volumises 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. Often, this condition will not respond to diet and exercise. Luckily, fat-dissolving injections can be used to improve your profile. As part of your non-surgical 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, skin cells and tissue are rejuvenated from the inside out.
In addition to Ultherapy, we also offer Thermage FLX treatments to tighten and lift lax skin. This radiofrequency-based treatment creates a bulk heating effect to stimulate collagen production. Thermage FLX treatments can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and volume loss to restore a more youthful appearance.
Fotona 4D is an innovative four-step laser treatment that combines two wavelengths to address a range of common ageing concerns, including wrinkles, volume loss, skin laxity and uneven skin tone. Unlike other laser treatments, Fotona 4D targets both the exterior of the face and the oral cavity to stimulate collagen and revitalise the skin from the inside out.
An in-depth consultation is needed so that a customised treatment plan can be created.
Ideal candidates for a non-surgical facelift
A non-surgical facelift may be an ideal option for anyone who is experiencing the common signs of age and wishes to address them without surgery. While a combination of these procedures can effectively treat minor to mild signs of ageing, treatments may not as visibly reduce severe ageing.
As these treatments have little to no downtime or complications, they are ideal for almost anyone. However, your medical history and specific skin concerns will need to be evaluated during a consultation before we recommend specific treatment options.
When will I see the 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 to. 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.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the type of procedure you had. Some procedures can achieve optimal results in one session. Other treatments may need several sessions to achieve the final results. Before the procedure, we will discuss with you how many treatments you may need.
There is no downtime associated with a non-surgical facelift procedure. After the procedure, you can immediately resume work and daily activities. To ensure optimal results, we will provide you with specific aftercare instructions before you go home.
