What Are Non-Surgical Facelifts and How Do They Work?

Non-Surgical Facelift Procedures

While surgical facelifts require overnight hospitalisation, long recovery periods and large incisions, their non-surgical counterparts do not. The latter is often a combination of minimally invasive procedures that are designed to help rejuvenate the appearance. That said, just because a non-surgical facelift in Sydney has less post-op discomfort and downtime than a traditional one doesn’t mean that its results are not as good. We discuss more today.

Types of Non-Surgical Facelift Procedures

There’s a variety of non-invasive techniques available, and every procedure is custom-tailored to meet specific needs. These can address anything from deep creases and fine lines to lax skin and loss of facial volume. Some of the most common non-surgical facelift surgery techniques include:

  • Dermal Fillers – These are often considered as the cornerstone of nonsurgical facelifts. These injectables can instantly restore volume in the cheeks, under-eye and temple area. By plumping these sunken areas, it can eliminate dark shadows and create a youthful vibrancy. These effects can last from six months to over a full year.
  • Anti Wrinkle Injections – This offers unmatched results in wrinkle reduction and is often used to smooth forehead creases, frown lines and crow’s feet. Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily relaxing the targeted muscle, instantly smoothing fine lines associated with repetitive expressions. The benefits of anti-wrinkle injections can last for up to three months.
  • Fat Grafting – This semi-invasive procedure uses the fatty tissue extracted from liposuction in another area of the body. After being cleaned and processed, the fat cells are then reinjected into the face to improve facial volume and give the appearance of youth. Because the living fat cells integrate with the existing tissue, it provides a rejuvenated appearance that lasts for years.

Maintenance for Non-Surgical Facelifts

The downside of non-surgical facelifts over traditional cosmetic surgery facelift is that it needs to be repeated every few months for optimal results. That said, if you are diligent in maintaining your treatment, you would need less and less over time.
