All You Need to Know About the Non-Surgical Facelift

The most recent craze in aesthetic treatments has been revealed: the non-surgical facelift. The modern, western world is full of people looking to try and slow down and even reverse the ageing process. Although getting older is unavoidable, a lot of men and women struggle with the physical changes in their appearance that comes with it. The face in particular shows signs of ageing, typically around the eyes and sagging or wrinkling skin. In the past the only option to correct these signs of ageing was by undergoing invasive plastic surgery in the form of a face lift, which of course is a risk both medically and aesthetically. Today, thanks to advances in the understanding of the human anatomy and the development of more innovative, less invasive aesthetic medicine people have the choice of a non-surgical facelift.

What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?

A non-surgical facelift is a process of reducing the features of ageing on the face. It differs from a traditional facelift it is non-surgical and non-invasive, however both procedures share the purpose of making the patient look younger and feel more confident about their appearance.

Details of the Procedure

In most cases, the non-surgical facelift comprises of multiple small procedures which are applied to various areas of the face, typically the temples, eyelids, cheeks, chin and jawline as these areas are the most likely to reveal a person’s age. The main treatment is a restoration of volume to these discrete areas in combination with muscle relaxing injections to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also lifting key areas of the face.

Results of the Non-Surgical Facelift

The most common question asked in regards to this innovative cosmetic treatment is: How effective are the results? As there are two elements to the non-surgical facelift, the results vary in duration. Volume restoration typically lasts for one year or more, while muscle relaxing injections last for several months. The balance between the two treatments used in the procedure will vary from person to person, therefore results will last longer in some and shorter in others. However, everyone who has undergone a non-surgical facelift describes the final result as looking rejuvenated, with a fresher face. Thanks to volume restoration, the area underneath the eyes in particular can be vastly improved.
