A non-surgical face-lift ‘re-drapes’ the skin facial skin. It starts by recreating a stronger cheek structure and refreshes your face, making it look younger and improving overall facial profile and symmetry.
This treatment is an ideal alternative if you want to lift and rejuvenate your face without the downtime of surgery and without creating the ‘wind-tunnel’ look that can result from a surgical facelift. We will usually recommend a combination of fillers, threads and Botox to meet your desired treatment objective.

How does this treatment work?
We use a combination of different treatment techniques to deliver the best results for each individual patient. Botox is used to relax muscles, removing unwanted wrinkles. Fillers and threads are used to lift your skin and add plumpness and volume to your face, making the skin tighter, fresher and younger looking and enhancing your facial profile.
What happens during my treatment?
Botox injections will be made first if being used, with fillers and/or thread treatment usually about 2 weeks later. Treatments are administered in clinic and you will be lying down. Anaesthetic will be given if threads are being used.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
This will depend on the combination of treatments used. If threads or fillers are being used then some minimal discomfort may be felt during treatment and for the following 2-3 days. Visible bruising and swelling are also possible.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Anyone aged 18 and over, although most patients are aged 40 or over. This treatment is not suitable for older people with very heavy excess skin.
