When we think about facelift, you might instantly think of full-on surgery. However, that’s not the case anymore. The world of aesthetic treatments has come a long way. The non-surgical facelifts are now a possibility without going under the knife.
We explain the most popular non-surgical facelift treatments that are in demand and the best aesthetics clinic with experienced skin doctors in Buckinghamshire to visit. From the results you can see, to combination treatments, we will explain how you can achieve the results you want.
Ultherapy uses FDA cleared ultrasound technology to lift the face in a single treatment to tighter, firmer, and better-fitting skin in less than an hour.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses micro-focused (also known as MFU-V) energy to stimulate new collagen production and elastin within the skin. This micro-focused ultrasound generates a thermal effect in the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the skin’s surface. What this does is it jump starts the skins repair process to produce new collagen and elastin and strengthens current collagen. These natural occurring proteins put structure back into your skin, thanks to collagen acting as the skins scaffolding to keep it plump and young.
What Ultherapy results can I look forward to?
This Gold-standard treatment for skin lifting and tightening is a market leading collagen booster that will give you the following results:
- Tightens and firms skin texture
- Lifts sagging and drooping skin
- Regenerates natural collagen and elastin stores
- Creates a fresh, natural, and rejuvenated appearance
It is the perfect treatment that can give these results to your full face, or lift your brow, jowls, eyelids, or smooth out that wrinkly decolletage, turkey neck or general sagging skin. With a Ultherapy face lift, you can achieve a refreshed and lifted appearance.
Ultherapy before and afters:
When will I see results?
After your Ultherapy treatment, patients have said they see an initial lift. The real full results can become more apparent over a 3–6-month period. During this time, new collagen builds which gradually adds lift to the skin.
How long do Ultherapy results last?
The best news about Ultherapy results is that patients treated at our London or Buckinghamshire clinic, still have fresh collagen even after a year!
Each patient is different and medical practitioners will provide all the advice you need to know your outcome. The ageing process cannot be stopped, therefore Ultherapy touch up treatments are recommended when you need them to keep rebuilding collagen.
Remodel and contour your face with Morpheus8, also referred to as a collagen induction treatment. Through combining microneedling and radiofrequency, Morpheus8 packs twice the punch giving you great results for your face.
How does Morpheus8 work?
At the head of the Morpheus8 device is 24 coated microneedles. When applied to your skin, it awakens the body’s natural healing response to produce more collagen and elastin. Simultaneously, the radiofrequency energy heats the tissue to tighten, moulds the fat to lift and firm’s contours. This leaves you with the appearance of smooth, sculpted and rejuvenated skin.
What Morpheus8 results can I look forward to?
Simply put, Morpheus8 is worth the time and money because the results truly speak for themselves. Results of Morpheus8 include how it:
- Contours, lifts and tightens the face
- Is effective on loose skin
- Promotes collagen production
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves and smooths uneven skin texture
- Reduces skin irregularities
- Fades acne scarring
- Improve hyperpigmentation
Morpheus8 can also be used on darker skin tones (skin type VI). This is thanks to its advanced colour-blind technology which means there is minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Morpheus8 before and afters:
When will I see results?
With just a few days, you can see visible skin tightening results. After three weeks, you will see more noticeable results appear. Over a period of 3 months after the Morpheus8 treatment, improvements will continue.
How long do Morpheus8 results last?
Great news is that results can last up to 12-18 months. Annual follow up treatments may be required depending on the patient’s maintenance routine being affected by lifestyle factors.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, our practitioners will let you know if any maintenance sessions will be required to help you maintain long term skin tightening results.
Refresh and restore your facial appearance and with the safe and expert led dermal filler treatment.
How does Dermal Fillers work?
As we age, our hyaluronic acid levels diminish. Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers work by replacing the skin’s own natural supply of hyaluronic acid. They can be used across several facial areas as a non-surgical facelift to fill out fine lines and wrinkles including:
- Upper face for your forehead lines, tear troughs, crow’s feet
- Midface for your nose to mouth lines, nose, cheeks
- Lower face for your lips, chin, jawline, marionette lines
What are the benefits of Dermal Fillers?
- Effective at smoothing out wrinkles
- Rejuvenates facial features
- Can easily be removed if necessary
- Minimal discomfort and downtime so you can get back to your routine
- Results are long, lasting but not permanent
- Safe and biocompatible

How long do Dermal Fillers results last?
Dermal fillers are not permanent. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we use hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, which break down after 9-18 months.
Thermage uses highly advanced radiofrequency technology and is clinically proven to smooth, recontour and tighten your skin.
How does Thermage work?
It tightens the skin by generating a thermal effect deep under the skin to heat the collagen. This in effect, remodels the existing collagen and stimulates new collagen production.
The safe, non-invasive treatment is comfortable thanks it to the cooling effect on top of the skin which also protects the surface layers of skin. Once the heating portion of the treatment is done, it finishes with a flash of cryogen to cool the dermis down.
What Thermage results can I look forward to?
Thermage treatment is an effective non-surgical facelift treatment as it will leave you with:
- Renewed contouring thanks to the remodelling abilities of Thermage
- Smoother and younger looking skin
- Tightened skin and reduced lines
- Improved jawline
- Eyes that are brighter and lifted
- New collagen to keep your skin plump and renewed
Thermage before and afters:
When will I see results?
Some Thermage results are immediately visible, with others improving over time as your body regenerates collagen. Most patients see tightening and contouring results 2-6 months after their first single Thermage treatment session.
How long do Thermage results last?
Depending on your age and other skin factors, Thermage results can last for years!
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift that gives unique double lifting and regenerated effect. You will be left with contoured, lifted and restored natural appearance results.
How do Thread Lifts work?
This non-invasive skin tightening procedure works by targeting fat that has sagged and pulling it back into place. Using a very fine needle, the suture threads (which are re-absorbable) are gently run through the fat layer which has no nerve endings. The sutures have tiny, re-absorbable bidirectional cones to keep them in place providing a lifting and regenerative effect.
What Thread Lift results can I look forward to?
- Lifted and regenerated facial skin
- Stimulates natural collagen production which eliminates wrinkles
- Smoother appearance and youthful looking skin
- Immediate but natural lift effect
- Progressive volumizing action over 18 months
