Getting a non-surgical facelift can be a great experience. Seeing how much of a difference these treatments can make without surgery can be amazing. However, you’ve got some important decisions to make before you can see it for yourself. You need to decide which treatment to have and where to get it. One of the factors you’ll need to consider as you make your choice is the cost of the treatment. How much should you expect to spend on a non surgical face lift?
What is a Non Surgical Face Lift?
We perform several different types of non-surgical facelift at the Dermadoc clinics in London and Manchester. The cost will depend on the type of treatment you choose. However, it’s important not to choose your cosmetic treatment based on price alone. You should discuss the options with one of our experts to find the one that will get you the best results. Your options are:
- Liquid facelift with dermal fillers, which can add volume to lift the skin and eliminate sagging
- Vampire facelift using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) created from your own blood to stimulate the natural processes of regeneration and collagen production in your skin
All three of these methods involve injecting something into your skin, but the material that is inserted and the way it affects your body can be very different.
Costs of Non-Surgical Face Lifts
The cost of your non-surgical facelift will depend on several factors: the type of treatment you choose, how much material needs to be injected, and the extra cost of the consultation itself. You will be paying for the time and expertise of the person who is treating you, as well as for the materials they are using.
The cost of a liquid facelift can vary depending on the type and amount of dermal filler that is being used. High quality dermal fillers from brands such as Juvederm and Restylane will be more expensive, but they are also safer and likely to produce better results.
For a partial facelift you might only need 5mL of filler, but a complete facelift could take 20mL or more. A typical facelift will usually be somewhere in between.
- Each mL of Juvederm filler will cost about £250-320, depending on the exact product
- A mL of Restylane filler will cost around £240
- The total cost could therefore be between £1200 and £6400. A typical non-surgical facelift will usually be around £2000.
The prices of vampire and thread facelifts tend to be less variable as most people will have the same number of injections. With PRP treatment, the platelets are collected from your own blood so there is no need to pay for the actual materials, only for the effort involved in extracting and preparing them.
- Vampire facelifts typically cost £500-1000, depending mainly on where they are done
- A thread facelift is the most expensive option and it will usually cost about £1500, but it could be more. Some clinics will charge over £2500.
Choosing Your Clinic
The cost of your treatment won’t just depend on the type of treatment and the materials that are required. You will also be paying for the skills of the person who is administering it and your time at the clinic. Where you choose to have the treatment will therefore have a big impact on the cost.
However, it’s important to remember that the price isn’t the only factor to consider when choosing where you will be treated. You also need to think about who will be treating you and how experienced they are with that particular treatment. It is much better to pay more for an experienced person at a trustworthy clinic than to go for a cheap treatment that won’t make you happy.
At the Dermadoc clinics, all of our cosmetic treatments are performed by doctors, so you know that you’ll be in safe hands. Other clinics might use people with no medical qualifications or training. Our doctors are very experienced with cosmetic procedures like the non surgical facelift and this makes a big difference to the results. Getting the treatment right is an art. It takes plenty of practice and a good eye.
Is It Worth It?
A non-surgical facelift can cost quite a lot when it’s performed with the best quality products at a reputable clinic. However, the price tag alone doesn’t tell you the whole story. You also need to think about the value of what you are buying.
Non-surgical facelifts can achieve remarkable results. It’s a good idea to look at some before and after pictures and to spend some time discussing the treatment options with an experienced doctor. You’ll then have a much better idea of what the treatment can do for you, which should help you to judge whether it is worth it. How much are you willing to pay to get those results?
Another point to consider is that while the non-surgical options are a lot more affordable than cosmetic surgery, the results won’t be permanent. A non-surgical face lift will typically last for 12-18 months, depending on the type of treatment that was performed. You will then need to repeat to treatment if you want to maintain the effects. However, you won’t need to take any time off work for a non-surgical facelift and there are lots of other benefits to avoiding surgery. Non-surgical facelifts are much safer and don’t require incisions, stitches or a general anaesthetic. Knowing that the effects aren’t permanent can also be an advantage, just in case you change your mind. You can decide not to have the treatment again or to change the way it was done.
