Most of us have something we’d like to improve about our appearance. But for many, the thought of invasive surgery, large incisions and extensive recovery times continues to stalk minds with dread and fear.

But feeling and looking for the best version of ourselves doesn’t necessarily mean going under the knife. Because, as thousands of patients across the UK will testify, amazing results can also be achieved through non-surgical and non-invasive procedures.

Interested? Here’s everything you need to know about non-surgical facelifts...

 

What Is a Non-surgical Facelift and How Does It Work?

A non-surgical facelift is an aesthetic procedure which uses dermal fillers to rejuvenate the look and feel of your face through a temporary lifting effect.

Often reversible, the injectable treatment restores lost volume and definition to areas of the face that may have recessed through the process of ageing.

What Is the Safest Non-surgical Facelift?

Provided your treatment is administered by a medical practitioner clinically trained to use injectables, most types of non-surgical facelift treatments cause nothing more than minor redness, swelling or bruising.

For added peace of mind, at Dr Raquel Skin and Medical Cosmetics, we only use temporary dermal fillers which have one of the best safety profiles of any injectable. Made from a dissolvable compound (hyaluronic acid), the treatment is reversible should a patient feel unsatisfied with the results.

 

How Much Does a Non-surgical Facelift Cost?

The cost of a non-surgical facelift varies depending on your desired outcomes, the agreed treatment plan during the consultation and the amount of filler required for treatment.

At Dr Raquel Skin and Medical Cosmetics, entry-level non-surgical facelift treatments start at £1,500.

Non-surgical Facelift Treatment: What to Expect Before, During and After

Although non-surgical facelift treatments do not carry the risks and complexity of their surgical counterpart, there are still some pre-treatment things you’ll need to know. Here’s a list of points addressed before or during consultation.

 

How Long Do Non-surgical Facelifts Last?

Depending on the type and amount of filler injected, a non-surgical facelift treatment typically lasts anywhere between nine to twelve months.

Varying from one patient to the next, the duration of treatment is also affected by your metabolism, lifestyle and how quickly your body naturally breaks down the hyaluronic acid.

 

Non-surgical Facelift for Different Areas of the Face

Non-surgical facelifts can improve volume, definition and hydration to multiple areas of the face:

Combining a Non-surgical Facelift With Other Aesthetic Procedures: Is It Recommended?

Absolutely. Where non-surgical facelifts enhance the deeper tissues of your face by replacing volume, combining other treatments such as chemical peels, exosomes, skin boosters, micro-needling and Botox often results in better outcomes – including longer-lasting facelift treatment.

The Benefits of a Non-surgical Facelift: Why It’s Worth the Investment

Depending on a patient’s mindset and expectations, a successful non-surgical facelift treatment not only rejuvenates and restores definition but also boosts confidence, self-esteem and happiness.

What’s more, by replacing lost volume with non-surgical treatment, patients bypass the fear of an “overdone” look and, instead, benefit from natural-looking results that often go undetected by family, friends and colleagues.

Non-surgical Facelift vs. Surgical Facelift

Where a surgical facelift usually requires a minimum of four weeks recovery, a non-invasive alternative is often a safer and more affordable alternative with minimal healing time required.

Although extremely rare, medical complications are a factor with both options. For that reason, it’s imperative your treatment is administered by a clinically trained medical professional.

 

Non-surgical Facelift Risks and Side Effects

The adverse effects of a non-surgical facelift treatment will vary from one person to the next. In most cases, patients require no downtime with minimal swelling usually lasting up to 48 hours. As a precautionary, patients are also advised not to wear makeup on the day of their treatment to prevent infection.
