It can seem unusual to think of a cosmetic procedure like a facelift and not instantly think of surgery.
However, as cosmetic surgery options have advanced in recent years, many people are saying ‘no’ to the traditional surgical treatments and are turning to the less invasive, more cost-effective versions instead.
Of course, before deciding to undertake any procedure, it is important to know as much about it as possible, so you can feel assured that you are choosing the right option for you, especially when it comes to reinvigorating your skin and face.

Curious to learn more? Of course, you are!
Here are the top five FAQs that our cosmetic experts are asked about the non-surgical facelift in Buckinghamshire.
I have sensitive skin; can I still have this treatment?
Yes, you can!
A non-surgical facelift in Buckinghamshire is not going to damage sensitive skin in any way; these types of facelifts typically involve injecting serums to the sub-surface of the skin.
While bruising is to be expected after such treatment, skin sensitivity has no impact on discomfort during or after the treatment.
I’m an older person, is this option right for me?
Age is not a factor with these types of facelift and has no impact on recovery time, success or longevity of the treatment.
However, depending on your age, you may require more than one appointment to complete your transformation.
What does the procedure involve?
There are many different types of facelifts that do not involve surgery.
However, as a generalisation, such procedures typically involve the administration of a local anaesthetic and serums being injected into targeted areas under your skin. Depending on how many injections are required, this process can take up to an hour to complete.
Will I need multiple appointments to complete the treatment?
Once again, this will depend on how refreshed you will want yourself to look post treatment and how many sessions our team thinks you may need with your choice of facelift.
If you are older or have deep-set wrinkles and fine lines, then it is likely that you will require multiple treatments to achieve your desired look.
Is there any aftercare I should know about?
While it is always wise to avoid the sun on a day with high UV, if you have just undertaken a non-surgical option that involves dermal fillers, Botox, or both, then you will need to stay out of the sun for a while.
Hyaluronic acid, used in dermal fillers, increases the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight, putting you at a higher risk of secondary complications to UV exposure. When you leave your home to go out into the sunlight, be sure to wear a high anti-UV sunscreen.
