Facial Rejuvenation Without Surgery



Non-Surgical Facelift Glasgow

A non-surgical facelift is a procedure or, more commonly, a combination of procedures designed to reduce some of the features of ageing on the face. It may be more accurate to describe the treatment as non-surgical facial rejuvenation since the impact on the face is different from a surgical facelift procedure. However, surgical and non-surgical facelifts both have the same ultimate goal:

To make you look younger and help you feel better about your appearance.

The Procedure



Non-Surgical Facelift Glasgow

A non-surgical facelift procedure is tailored to your individual needs and may involve a variety of techniques such as chemical peels, IPL treatments, dermal fillers, and threading. At our cosmetic clinic in Glasgow, we approach each treatment individually, creating bespoke facial rejuvenation solutions for each patient’s unique scenario.

Restoring Volume

Typically it will involve restoring volume to discrete areas of the face such as the temples, eyelids, cheeks, chin and jawline.

Muscle Relaxing

There will usually be an element of muscle relaxing injections to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as to create a lifting impact on key areas of the face.

Reducing Sagging

There is also usually an effort to reduce the appearance of lax skin, either by using threads to lift the skin or – more commonly now – to use radio frequency energy to tighten the skin on the lower face and neck.

Surface Rejuvenating

Finally, there is usually an element of skin surface rejuvenation using either chemical peels or IPL treatments to reduce signs of sun damage, pigmentation, or thread veins, and to improve the complexion.

Facelift FAQ

Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Give The Same Result As a Surgical Facelift?

A non-surgical facelift is a completely different treatment concept from a surgical facelift. A surgical facelift is designed to re-drape and remove sagging skin, whereas a non-surgical facelift is about improving the skin, which still lifts the facial aesthetic significantly.

Apart from this, the main difference between the two procedures is the downtime. With a surgical facelift, you will likely need a week off work, whereas with a non-surgical facelift you can usually go back to work the next day or, at most, after a weekend off.

If you are still unsure of which is the best option for you, contact us at our clinic to book a consultation for your facelift.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results of the different components of the procedure will last varying lengths of time. Typically, the skin tightening and rejuvenation aspects (chemical peels, IPL) have the most long-lasting results, remaining improved for several years.

The effects of facial volumising will normally last a year or more, whilst muscle relaxing injections typically last a few months and normally need to be repeated 2 or 3 times per year.

We also choose to use hyaluronic acid (HA) instead of collagen for our dermal fillers as it provides longer-lasting results and has a much lower risk of allergic reactions.

Case Study

Here is an example of a lady in her early 50s who felt she was looking tired and decided to undergo a non-surgical facelift treatment.

For her treatment, she underwent a combination of muscle relaxing injections in her upper face, dermal fillers to her temples, cheeks, and chin, as well as skin tightening treatment to her neck.

The filler treatments, such as cheek filler, make a big difference in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, which results in the face having a more soft and youthful look.

She is seen before her treatment and her results are shown 4 months after beginning the course of treatment. Overall she looks more youthful and healthy, without looking ‘done’.

Natural-looking results are the goal at our aesthetics clinic for all of our non-surgical facelift patients.
