Dr Tracy Mountford on Non-Surgical Facelifts
Although people have traditionally resorted to cosmetic surgery, there are obvious disadvantages such as expense and recovery time. Today, there are many simple yet highly effective non-invasive alternatives to a surgical facelift that help you subtly return to a fresher version of yourself – and keep lines, wrinkles and sagging at bay.
As we age, the face loses volume and the skin’s elasticity declines dramatically, with the effects of gravity becoming all too evident and resulting in sagging or drooping. For women, the chin can also be a real tell-tale sign of ageing: the loss of deep supporting fat, combined with gum recession and loss of bone, impact the lower face and chin causing thin lips and wrinkles and a puckered or pouty chin. Tissue loss and sagging skin also cause a chin crease below the lips.

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, Dr Tracy Mountford is a pioneer of the ‘less is more’ approach to non-surgical cosmetic enhancement. The aim is for natural rejuvenation – as if your face has simply been airbrushed. Our practitioners are trained in the highly technical MD Codes™approach – an advanced method of facial enhancement through precision injection points that treat the cause of the issue as well as the problem area.
Our ethos is to tailor make a treatment plan to restore the three-dimensional contour of your face with naturally understated, long-lasting results. We find best results are obtained by customizing a clever combination of treatments such as: Botox®, dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, skin lifting & tightening (Ultherapy® and Thermage®) and Silhouette Soft® thread lifting that all work in synergy.
For example, dermal fillers or collagen-stimulating treatments to restore lost volume, re-contouring and sculpting the face and cheeks, and Ultherapy, Ultrasound and Thermage radio frequency to lift, smooth and tighten the skin. Additionally, ‘thread lifts’ can be included to offer a very subtle lift to the brow, cheeks and jowls area.
Different treatments achieve different outcomes. We follow a holistic style approach and get the best results for you by careful assessment of the face. Our practitioners will put together a tailor made treatment plan for you, which may include one treatment or a combination of treatments to achieve optimum results.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
