Fewer people are opting to go under the knife with the advent of non-surgical facelifts in London. Apart from the obvious reasons, why are London non-surgical facelifts rising in popularity? In this article, our team at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic will answer frequently asked questions on a plethora of treatments, classified as non-surgical facelifts in London, that have received worldwide acclaim for tightening, lifting and improving the overall appearance of all skin types.
Will I experience pain?
For many people considering a cosmetic procedure for the first time, this question is probably on the forefront of their minds. Will the procedure hurt?
These treatments use types of energies to restructure and lift the skin – which can be temporarily uncomfortable but have no lingering effects.
What are some examples of non-surgical facelifts in London?
We like to recommend a skin tightening treatment called Thermage. Using advanced handheld technology, we channel non-invasive radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen, while adding laxity to the skin. In short, not only are these energy waves non-invasive, in that the top layers of skin are left untouched – but you can look forward to a new and improved you in the months that follow your session with us.
Similar to the Thermage treatment, Ultherapy uses another type of energy – ultrasound rays – to lift and rejuvenate your skin. Firmer skin, fewer wrinkles and a youthful glow could be yours with Ultherapy!
- Chemical peels
We can help you combat signs of ageing with a chemical peel. Like the above-mentioned treatments, peels are needle-and-scalpel free. Using the body’s naturally occurring acid, combined with active ingredients, we remove your dead skin cells from the top layers of the skin, leaving you with brighter, refreshed and even-toned skin.
Microneedling, otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, is commonly used for poorly and mature skin that is prone to fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, or simply yields to gravity. We use a unique double-action procedure called Intracel, that combines traditional Microneedling with radiofrequency, to repair and regenerate the production of collagen.
Do any of these procedures have side effects or involve lengthy recovery periods?
While these above-mentioned treatments use different methods for facial rejuvenation, they have several factors in common:
- Less discomfort. That is not to say you will not feel any tenderness or pain. Some of our patients have reported tingling, prickling and related sensations, but none are long-lasting.
- Less downtime. Do not have the time or leave to heal? Most people do not. You can return to work after the treatment or, at the very most, take a day or two off work.
