What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?

As the popularity of aesthetics treatments continues to soar, you may have grown more accustomed to hearing the phrase “Non-Surgical Facelift.” This popular procedure consists of a combination of Botox® and dermal filler injections aimed at combating signs of ageing and promoting renewed, youthful-looking skin. The best part is that an expert aesthetic practitioner will work with you to focus on your problem areas and create a bespoke treatment that’s unique to your face and aesthetic goals.

Various benefits come with opting for a non-invasive treatment over the more extreme surgical procedure. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the process of a non-surgical facelift, as well as the expected results, aftercare and how to book a non-surgical facelift treatment.

Non-surgical facelift treatment overview

As tell-tale signs of ageing begin to appear on the face and neck, it’s not surprising that at some point, you may consider a minor touch-up here and there to renew and rejuvenate your complexion. Fine lines and wrinkles can also be worsened by damage from UV rays, smoking and genetic conditions. In addition to the creases that appear on our face, we may experience volume loss in various facial areas, fat loss in the cheeks and a drooping effect in the jowls and around the mouth. Luckily, certain non-invasive procedures can minimise the appearance of these problem areas without the need to go under the knife.

Aesthetic clinics can offer a range of non-surgical facelift options to clients, including a combination of strategically placed Botox® dermal fillers injections to provide a lifted effect and achieve effective results without the need for surgery.

Depending on the results you’re hoping for, a qualified aesthetics professional will work with you to achieve a tailored treatment plan that best suits your needs and provides a beautiful, natural outcome that complements your features perfectly. Some of the most popular requests for aesthetic patients presenting for a non-surgical facelift treatment include:

  • Minimised appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter, fuller-looking skin
  • A radiant and rejuvenated complexion
  • Reduced sagging and bags under the eyes

Benefits of a non-surgical vs surgical facelift 

The traditional facelift – also called a Rhytidectomy – involves surgical incisions to the mid and lower face and neck, intended to reposition the soft tissues within this area. While highly effective, a surgical effective is a long-term, expensive, life-altering procedure that many individuals do not feel comfortable undergoing.

Non-surgical facelifts provide a wide variety of benefits that make them a great alternative to surgery. Some of the main advantages of these aesthetic procedures include:

Low-risk- Like any invasive procedure involving incisions into the skin, a surgical face involves several risks, including infection, scarring blood clots, and nerve damage in more extreme cases. Due to the non-surgical nature of aesthetic treatments, there is minimal risk of complications, and it’s likely that – at most – patients will experience slight swelling, bruising and redness.

Lower cost – It’s no secret that plastic surgery is a substantial financial investment. Aesthetic procedures are a fraction of the cost and offer great value for money. Although it’s necessary to top-up treatments on a regular basis to maintain the results, this is at your discretion, so a continued financial commitment isn’t compulsory. The non-surgical facelift cost can also work out favourably when you book a combination of treatments, which many clinics offer as a package option.

Subtle results – When administered by a qualified medical professional, a non-surgical facelift can provide natural, elegant results that add volume and plumpness to the face, rather than a tightly-pulled look that is more common with an invasive procedure. If you’re concerned about your results looking too obvious or ‘overdone’, this benefit makes aesthetics the ideal choice. The best way to ensure that you’ll receive natural results is to request non-surgical facelift before and after photos from your practitioner before undergoing treatment.

Quick & virtually pain-free – Since Botox® and dermal fillers involve the use of injections rather than cutting into the skin, it’s unlikely that you’ll experience much –  if any – discomfort during the procedure. Also, each injectable procedure typically only takes around 10 minutes, which means that you won’t have to spend a prolonged period in the clinic, and you can slot in treatments around your busy lifestyle.

Minimal recovery time and aftercare – With just a simple injection and very few side effects, you are generally able to resume your everyday life straight after treatment. Many patients even elect to undergo a procedure on their lunch break! Aftercare is also easy to follow. While every individual is different and complications are possible, it’s likely that any bruising or swelling you experience will subside with simple over-the-counter painkillers.
