The non-surgical facelift

By 10 November 2017 Articles & Media

Is it even possible to get FACELIFT results without any surgical procedures?? Yes , we are living in the year 2017 and things are only getting better.

Traditionally a facelift involves a few consultations, preparations and of course a big wallet. But nowadays, clinics all over the world are doing a procedure called: the Non-Surgical Facelift!

What is the non-surgical facelift?

This is an instant LIFT of the actual skin by using threads. Two different type of threads can be used

  1. Silhouette Soft Threads
  2. PDO

Silhouette Soft Threads achieves a bigger result than a PDO thread. Therefore the Dr will decide on the type of thread to be used, depending on the result to be expected and the amount of damage to be treated.

How does it work?

When using the bigger threads during a non-surgical facelift, silhouette soft threads, the procedure can take about 45minutes. If we use the smaller PDO threads, it can be as quick as 20 minutes. Local anaesthetic (by means of injections) is used to make the procedure basically pain free.
Once the threads are inserted in the skin, they stimulate your collagen production. Therefore the quality of the skin will improve drastically which will result in less wrinkles and a beautifully rejuvenated skin.

How long does it last?

Okay let’s talk results. By inserting the threads in the skin and leaving them there, we can see results for up to 2 years. Results are seen immediately, but still improves for 3 months after the procedure.

Who can get the Non-Surgical Facelift?

  • Mild to Severe elasticity loss in the face like cheeks, jowls and jawline
  • A drastic lift, but still a natural result
  • When invasive surgery is not your thing
  • If you want to correct sagging effectively and at the same time prevent any worsening

The smaller PDO threads are great to do the non-surgical Facelift with, when:

  • A more subtle lift that will improve the over the next couple of months, and no down time
  • A refreshed and rejuvenated look
  • Prevention is always a good indicator
  • Natural results and a youthful appearance
