4 Non-Surgical Facelift Alternatives
The ‘Facelift’ has been given a Facelift..
Now more than ever we are seeing that age is nothing but a number, 50 is the new 30! But aging is a whole other kettle of fish – to be avoided and slowed down at any cost. For years, people have been subjecting themselves to painful and costly treatments with long recovery periods and gruesome side effects.
Recently, research and development have steered us away from the surgical route, with many options available that are non-invasive, non-surgical and able to provide long lasting results without breaking your bank (or your facial structure!)
Who says you can’t be young forever? Not us! Listed below are 4 of the most innovative non-surgical facelift alternatives.
- CACI Ultimate ‘Non Surgical Facelift’
CACI’s procedure is the ultimate non-surgical facelift and was recently voted as the UK’s most effective anti-aging treatment. This award winning technology has 20+ years of medical research behind it, and works with micro-electric currents stimulating the facial muscles. In essence it is a gym for the face, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles whilst toning and tightening the skin.
One CACI treatment can last up to 1 hour with no recovery or downtime needed. It is advisable to do a course of treatment (6-15) to see the best results, though your face will be visibly toned after only the 2nd treatment!
Approximate price: £500 – £700 per session.
- Venus Freeze
It has long been known that radio frequency is a proven technology in skin tightening and lifting. The problem was, how to deliver high doses of radio frequency without pain. The Multi-Polar design of the Venus Freeze applicator allows the practitioner to deliver high levels of Radio Frequency to multiple layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and fibroblast proliferation with no pain or downtime. It can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, including around the eyes, as well as on the body for cellulite and dimpled skin. A course of treatment is advised (6-12) to see maximum results.
Approximate cost: £500 – £800 per session.
Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy is a pain-free procedure that uses a variety of different coloured lights to target various skin concerns including acne and acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and rosacea. It also targets redness and inflammation. However, to see long lasting and great results an average of 24 treatments is required.
Approximate cost: £150 per session.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a similar facial treatment that works well for pigmentation, red vessels, and sun damage – all of which contribute massively to premature aging of the skin. The treatment involves a broadband light device that delivers a spectrum of wavelengths. A course of treatments (6-12) is advised to deliver drastic results.
Approximate cost: £350 – £850 per session.
- HIFU Ultherapy
HIFU Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-surgical procedure recommended by the UK’s best plastic surgeons as a magnificent alternative to surgery. HIFU (High Intensity micro Focused Ultrasound) works by delivering thermal energy to subcutaneous tissues, stimulating collagen production and fibroblast cells. Your skin will continue to regenerate long after your session has finished. Treatments last up to 1 hour and can be repeated every 6-12 months. Results appear progressively within 1-6 months and can last upward of 5 years!
Approximate cost: £1500 – £3000 per session
