Non-Surgical Facelift Glasgow

A non-surgical facelift is a procedure which targets the features if ageing on the face. The impact of this treatment is extremely different to that of a surgical facelift and so it is sometimes referred to as non-surgical faced rejuvenation and is sometimes a combination of procedures. The ultimate goal however, is to make you look younger and feel better about your appearance. The procedure mostly involves restoring volume to discrete areas of the face such as eyelids, cheeks, temples, the chin and jawline. In addition, muscle relaxing injections can be used to reduce lines and wrinkles. In order to tackle lax skin sometime threads are used to lift the skin or more commonly today radio frequency energy is used to tighten the skin using Profound RF. The final procedure to be used would be either a chemical peel or IPL treatment which reduces the signs of sun damage, pigmentation, and thread veins and to improve the general complexion of the patient.

Results and Risks

There is much less risk with a non-surgical facelift compared with a surgical facelift where the skin re-draped and sagging skin surgically removed from the face. The non-surgical facelift in Glasgow also has less recovery time with most patients returning to work the next day or at most after one weekend off work. Since there are several different treatments used to achieve the overall results, there are different timescales for how long  each treatment will last before requiring a top up.
