Non-surgical face lifts come in many different forms, all of which can lift and tighten your skin to achieve similar effects to facelift surgery. You will get personalised advice on which type of non-surgical face lift is most suitable for you when you visit Dermadoc for a consultation but it can help to have an idea of what is available while you’re considering your options. Here is a quick guide to the most popular types of non-surgical face lift in the UK from the liquid facelift to HIFU.
The 8-point facelift uses dermal fillers to add volume to specific parts of your face in order to lift and tighten your skin. Dermal fillers are particularly good when you want to see specific results as they can be carefully tailored to your needs. The results will be visible immediately and should last for up to 18 months.
Botox can be used to target specific muscles in your face in order to lift any areas that are starting to droop. Botox can be particularly effective for giving you a lift around the eyes and it is generally used when you want a targeted lift rather than a complete facelift.
The name of the vampire facelift refers to the fact that the PRP therapy it uses is produced from your own blood. A small sample of blood is taken so that we can extract tiny cell fragments known as platelets from it. The concentrated platelets can then be injected into your skin where they will trigger the natural processes of healing and regeneration. Your skin should soon look softer, tighter and more youthful.
Caci Facial Toning
Caci Facial Toning uses a combination of LED, microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy that can give your entire face a lift. LED therapy uses specific frequencies of light to stimulate regeneration inside your skin. The microdermabrasion treatment removes the outer layer of dead skin to reveal the smoother layer underneath. The microcurrent therapy stimulates your facial muscles using weak electrical currents. The Caci system can improve the tone of your facial muscles while smoothing away wrinkles. It can be a good choice if you want to tackle multiple signs of ageing with a single treatment.
Radiofrequency and HIFU Facelifts
Many non-surgical face lifts use injectables but we also perform treatments using special devices that can stimulate lifting and tightening processes inside your skin. Several different treatments are available at Dermadoc that use different types of energy in order to achieve these facelift effects. All three of these non-surgical facelifts involve passing a special device across your skin, focusing on the areas where you have noticed the signs of ageing such as sagging and loss of volume. The right one for you will depend on your skin and what you want the procedure to achieve.
- Radiofrequency Skin Tightening: a treatment that uses radio waves to heat specific layers of skin in order to encourage cells to make more collagen and elastin. These two substances are essential for skin elasticity so they can help to lift and tone your skin.
- Levura Skin Tightening: an ultrasound based treatment that uses soundwaves to heat specific layers of the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
- Skinmed HIFU Facelifts: HIFU combines ultrasound and radiofrequency to boost collagen and elastin production in your skin. It can act on the deeper layers of your skin in order to lift, tone and hydrate your face. It can produce particularly fast results that can start to appear after just one treatment session.
Choosing Your Non-Surgical Face Lift
Given the wide range of different treatments that can give you a lift, from dermal fillers to HIFU, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. The answer can depend on many factors including the condition of your skin, how long you want the effects to last, and any personal preferences you might have about how the procedure will be performed. You will be able to discuss all of these factors with an experienced doctor at the Dermadoc clinic so that you can make the best choices about your cosmetic treatments.
