By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM 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 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, resulting in sagging or drooping skin. 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.
Some of these amazing non-surgical options include: dermal fillers, Ultherapy® and Thermage®. Click below to read more about other non-surgical facelift treatments and see our before and after photos!

With plastic surgery, recovery times can be as long as six months in some cases. With a face lift through non-cosmetic surgery, there is little to no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
The 8-point facelift is the world’s most comprehensive non-surgical facelift, targeting every aspect of skin sagging and wrinkles across the entire face. This revolutionary treatment uses advanced dermal filler techniques to do much more than just restoring volume. It lifts the tissues and structure of the face to produce a more youthful profile from every angle.
8-Point Face Lift results will vary depending on the individual patient. However, the vast majority of patients can expect to see results lasting from 12-18 months, and up to 2 years. After this time, the fillers will dissipate and top-up treatments can be re-scheduled.
There is no serious pain involved with a non-surgical facelift. Most patients are completely comfortable throughout the treatment, although we can apply pain relief lidocaine creams and recommend normal analgesics for patients who are more likely to suffer from pain symptoms. As a non-surgical treatment, there is minimal discomfort as no scalpels or invasive surgery is applied to the skin. This makes it an ideal treatment for patients who are nervous about cosmetic procedures.
There are minimal side effects with a non-surgical facelift as the treatment is completely non-surgical. However, some patients may experience redness, swelling or bruising at injection sites. However, these symptoms should completely disappear in a matter of days, or in the case of bruising, 1 to 2 weeks post-treatment.
Costs for a non-surgical facelift vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and treatment goals. Speak to one of our trained clinicians during a personalised consultation and they will be happy to provide an accurate cost after assessing your face structure, skin conditions and anti-ageing concerns.
