What is a Non Surgical Facelift? 

A non-surgical face lift, or facial rejuvenation is achieved by using a combination of aesthetic treatments to restore facial structures and treat localised facial concerns, such as wrinkles, loss of volume, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and scarring.

This provides a good alternative to the traditional surgical facelift with none of the down time, visible scarring and pain that goes with a surgical procedure. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to facial rejuvenation and different therapies will be used depending on your individual concerns.

A non-surgical face lift can include a combination of fat transfer to face [LINK] and dermal fillers for volume [LINK], muscle freezing injections such as botox or treatments such as Ultherapy, lasers or radio-frequency for skin tightening.

Depending on the quality of skin, your consultant may recommend a series of facial skin peels or other skin rejuvenating treatments such as microneedling alongside your treatment plan.

Why do people have Non Surgical Facelift treatment?

Non Surgical Facelift treatment is designed to be the most comprehensive combination treatment to combat the ageing process.

The benefits of a Non Surgical Facelift® are both cosmetic and psychological, and include:

  • Rejuvenated facial appearance
  • Smoother, tightened surface skin 
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Restored volume and facial proportions
  • Improved sense of emotional wellbeing

Why have a Non Surgical Facelift vs Surgical Facelift?

The benefit of a Non Surgical facelift is that it is quick, non invasive, does not require general anaesthetic and has very little downtime. It is also possible to stage the treatment over a period of several months so the effects appear gradually over time and appear subtle, and natural to others.

Surgical facelift is a better option if you are looking for more dramatic 'one-off' anti-ageing results that do not require ongoing maintenance and topping up.

We often recommend Non Surgical Facelift for younger patients who are just beginning to experience the effects of ageing in their 30s and 40s, before having a surgical facelift at a later date. Equally, we also recommend a Non Surgical Facelift for those looking to top-up and maintain the results of their surgical facelift after a decade or so has elapsed.

Our specialist plastic surgeons can advise you on the best course of action, and determine a bespoke plan on your behalf.

What to expect during your Non Surgical Facelift consultation at the Cadogan Clinic?

Due to our underlying medical philosophy and strict medical standards, we only offer Non Surgical Facelift treatments by trained consultant dermatologists or plastic surgeons. Not only is this safer, but is proven to deliver superior aesthetic outcomes.

You will meet with one of our highly trained cosmetic dermatologists or surgeons our Clinic on Sloane Street, Chelsea for a no-obligation in-person assessment.

Your consultant will discuss the following with you at this consultation:

  • The best options for you and your facial anatomy, and the results that you would likely achieve 
  • An explanation of the various rejuvenation procedure options available to you, their expected outcomes and associated recovery times and costs
  • Go through your past medical history
  • Answer any questions you may have

If you both agree that a treatment is desirable during the consultation, a bespoke treatment plan will be drawn up and your first treatment can even take place there and then during the same visit.

Your consultation is free, but subject to a £50 attendance deposit that can be redeemed against any treatment delivered during your visit.

You are then invited back for a free post-treatment review session 2 – 4 weeks later where a complimentary top-up is provided if you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions

You are suitable for a Non Surgical Facelift if:

+ You are in good psychological and physical medical health
+ You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations of what can be achieved via treatment
+ You are seeking to eliminate or reduce signs of facial ageing
+ You are looking for an quick, effective, non invasive solution, able to deliver long lasting results
+ You are in your 30s and 40s and looking for an alternative to a surgical facelift, or delay the timing of when you may need one
+ You have already had a surgical facelift some years ago and are looking to maintain the results

Who performs the exact treatments will depend on what precise combination of treatments comprise your bespoke plan.

We only offer consultant – led anti-ageing injectable and dermal filler treatments, performed by highly trained cosmetic dermatologists or plastic surgeons.

The majority of our laser and Ultherapy treatments are also only delivered by cosmetic dermatologists or plastic surgeons.Some milder treatments such as chemical skin peels and microneedling can be performed by one of our aesthetic practitioners.

The Cadogan Clinic takes patient safety and patient outcomes extremely seriously. We insist on high quality treatments delivered by highly trained practitioners as part of our medical philosophy and medical ethics approach.

Results are immediate following each individual treatment, although final results should start to fully resolve after about 6 weeks. Best results will be visible 3 months after your treatment plan has ended

Yes. The majority of treatments that comprise a Non Surgical Facelift are fully reversible.

That said, your consultant will look to layer results on top of each other gradually throughout your treatment plan, meaning you should be able to avoid a situation where results need to be reversed

How long results last will depend on what type of treatment or procedure you get. With nonsurgical procedures, it's likely you'll need to get them done regularly to maintain your desired results.

Your practitioner should advise you on when to return for a follow-up visit, but most patients will be able to tell on their own, as they'll notice the treatments wearing off.

With regular maintenance and proper treatment, it is possible for patients who start in their 30s to prevent the signs of ageing and maintain a very youthful look into their 50s.

In general, we consider non surgical facelifts a temporary fix that can last one to two years, whereas a surgical facelift typically lasts 10 years.

Anti Ageing injectables and Dermal fillers require no cuts, incisions or stitches to be made, but it can feel like a tiny scratch or stinging sensation as the needle goes in and the treatment is applied.

Laser, Microneedling and Ultherapy treatments should also involve minimal pain.

For those feeling anxious, we can use a local anaesthetic to numb the area completely.

Non Surgical Facelift injections are very safe. Possible side effects include temporary bruising, swelling and asymmetry.

By avoiding surgery, however, you will avoid many of the side effects and risks associated with a more invasive approach.

Downtime is very minimal, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment.

If you experience some swelling and bruising in the treated area, you should be able to cover any bruising with makeup.

Plastic surgeons tend to be sceptical of non-surgical injection-led treatments when it comes to delivering long lasting facial rejuvenation results.

However, we do recommend non surgical alternatives for younger patients or patients with only minor signs of ageing.

There are limits, however. It is very difficult to fix drooping, sagging older skin. with a non-surgical facelift. You also cannot expect full resolution of deep wrinkle lines and drooping skin with fillers and injections, and of course, over time fillers fade and need to be replenished.

There are also various laser and high energy device rejuvenation treatments that we offer at the Cadogan Clinic, such as Laser Resurfacing, IPL, and Ultherapy. These treatments can be sufficient for some patients, but this depends entirely on the condition of the skin.

We typically recommend non-surgical treatments as a maintenance adjunct to surgical treatment, wherever possible. Surgical facelifts remain the better option to ensure dramatic, long lasting results. When it comes to drooping, sagging skin and deeply set wrinkles on the face, a surgical facelift is the best option.

In sum, whilst non surgical treatments can delay the effects of ageing to a certain superficial level, but the emptiness of the face and folds of loose skin will require surgery.

A non-surgical facelift refers to a treatment such as Ultherapy which lifts, tightens and tones the skin for a youthful-looking appearance without involving any surgery, incisions or general anaesthetic. Similarly to a tradition facelift, this treatment will lift and sharpen the jowl area and jaw line, lift the brow and hide excess skin on the upper eyelids.
