What is a non-surgical facelift?A non-surgical facelift, as the name implies, is an option that is akin to a facelift, yet does not require surgery. How can this be possible? The answer lies in the modern facial aesthetic treatments that are now available – dermal fillers of the highest quality, including specialist options for parts of the face such as the lips. There are other treatments to address different parts of ageing – for instance, anti-wrinkle for lines on the forehead, or skin tightening treatments and peels to improve the overall hue of your complexion. The range of treatments and precise blend will vary patient by patient – after all, we are all different. However, the unifying theme is that we all experience similar signs of ageing, and there are superb options to treat all of these.
What does a non-surgical facelift comprise?The key element of the non-surgical facelift is undoubtedly dermal fillers. High quality fillers, especially Juvederm as used at Viva, are a simply wonderful treatment. They incorporate hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, and use this to stimulate collagen and elastin creation. This in turn volumises the skin, adds renewed firmness and undoes so many of those signs of ageing. When applied with skill the results are natural looking, without that clear look of ‘work having been done’. We use our own VIVA method for non-surgical facelift. This is made up of a series of dermal filler injections that are strategically placed to reapply volume, smooth lines and wrinkles. It is also to lift and tighten and generally leaves you looking fabulous! However, every patient is an individual and we will discuss the best options in a detailed consultation. It might be that anti-wrinkle can be used alongside fillers to address other signs of ageing, such as peels, skin tightening and other treatments.
