As we age, our skin goes through important changes that lead to volume loss and sagging skin around the cheeks, eyes, temples and lower face. Although these changes are part of life, the natural signs of ageing can make you see yourself through a different lens.
If you’re concerned regarding changes you are noticing with your appearance, then a non-surgical facelift can restore your facial features and bring back the confidence of your younger self. London City Skin Clinic offers the best in non-surgical aesthetics and we want to make sure you’re fully informed before you book your consultation appointment.
What is a non-surgical facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is a combination of procedures that are designed to lift your facial features and restore your youthful appearance. Non-surgical facelifts are renowned for their accuracy and ability to bring back your glow without the need for surgery
What is involved in a non-surgical facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is achieved through targeted application of dermal filler for a ‘liquid facelift’, and possibly clever use of injectable Botox for the lower face.
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive filler treatment that uses concentrated Hyaluronic acid (HA), which the binds water to replace volume. This hydrating acid exists within your body naturally and when injected, it safely breaks down into the body, so the results are subtle and safe when injected correctly.
The non-surgical facelift technique utilises coding with the Juvéderm Vycross collection of non-permanent HA dermal fillers. These HA dermal fillers each work in specific ways to add volume and give structure and support to the face.
Is a non-surgical facelift right for me?
If you’re concerned about the impact ageing skin and volume changes are having on your appearance, then non-surgical facelift treatment could be the right solution for you.
We recommend this treatment if you have:
- Sagging skin on the lower portion of your face
- Shallow or hollow appearance to your eyes
- Sinking skin in your cheeks, or exaggerated folds
- Wrinkles or lines on your forehead, crows feet or smile lines around your mouth may need addition of Botox.
To discuss treatment for any of the above or to discuss options for alternative signs of ageing, contact London City Skin Clinic to book your consultation appointment.
