Surgical vs non-surgical facelifts

Before we explore these treatments, let’s understand surgical facelifts so we can compare them with non-surgical facelift alternatives.

A surgical facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing the visible signs of ageing on the face and neck. The procedure is notably invasive, involving incisions in specific areas like the hairline at the temples, extending around the ear, and sometimes into the lower scalp.

Incisions allow the practitioner to lift (or pull back) and reposition the skin and tissues to smooth wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, lift a drooping chin, and create a more defined jawline. Surgical facelifts typically involve removing excess facial skin, tightening underlying tissues, and sometimes repositioning facial fat for a more rejuvenated appearance.

While this type of facelift can provide long-lasting results, it comes with the inherent risks and downtime associated with any surgical procedure. Recovery can take several weeks, during which patients experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

Enjoy all the benefits of a surgical facelift 

But we know you’re here because you’re looking for all the benefits of a facelift without the surgical aspect, and that’s precisely what we promise with our array of alternatives. 

Non-surgical face lifts use various non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques to rejuvenate, tighten, and lift the skin—without incisions. These treatments deliver results similar to surgical facelifts, substituting cuts with injectables, threadlifts, microneedling, and cutting-edge laser and plasma technology. Beyond lifting the skin, they stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, which are fundamental proteins for maintaining a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

So if you’re looking for facelift treatments for your whole face or more targeted solutions for an eyelift, brow lift, neck lift, jowl lift, or chin lift, we got you covered. Our top 4 facelift treatments:

  1. PDO Threading 

PDO Threading, popularly known as the one-stitch facelift, is a cutting-edge method in non-surgical facelifts. It lifts, sculpts, and smooths the skin, making it an effective skin-tightening solution. It’s particularly popular in addressing concerns like eye bags and is often used in non-surgical brow lift procedures, also known as lateral brow lifts. 

PDO Threading involves delicately inserting a medical-grade thread beneath the skin’s surface to grip the underlying tissues and muscles. The thread is then pulled tautly around specific problem areas to address your ageing concerns while simultaneously triggering collagen and elastin. 

  1. Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift, also known as an injectable facelift, uses dermal fillers to diminish the signs of ageing. At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we specialise in Teosyal and Ellanse, two leading brands that are packed with powerful active ingredients to transform your skin. 

These dermal fillers are carefully injected into the target areas to lift, contour, and tighten facial skin. In just one session, jowls shrink, crow’s feet smoothen out, lines on the corners of the mouth soften, facial volume is restored, and sagging cheeks are tightened. 

  1. Morpheus8

Combining the rejuvenating power of microneedling with advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology, Morpheus8 is a groundbreaking skin-tightening treatment that firms your entire face, so you can get rid of wrinkles, fine lines, and jowls. Serving as a minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelifts, Morpheus8 stimulates collagen and elastin by triggering the skin’s natural healing response through microneedling. 

The ultra-fine needles not only activate anti-aging proteins but also deliver RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin, yielding exceptional skin tightening results for a rejuvenated, supple, and toned appearance.

  1. NeoGen Plasma Skin Regeneration (PSR)

Our latest and most innovative non-surgical facelift treatment, NeoGen Plasma Skin Regeneration, sets a new standard in skincare. Developed at Cardiff University and powered by Energist, a distinguished Welsh medical and cosmetic technology manufacturer, this groundbreaking treatment stands apart from others in the market.

Fuelled by cutting-edge plasma technology, NeoGen gently heats the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This unique process involves converting nitrogen gas into plasma energy without causing harm to the tissue. It’s designed to target the entire face and is so effective that just one high-energy treatment is needed. 

Even more impressive is its gentle and tolerable nature, making it one of the very few non-surgical systems capable of directly treating the eyelids without resorting to surgery. This versatility extends to targeted treatments like plasma eye lifts, making NeoGen Plasma Skin Regeneration an ideal solution whether you’re aiming to rejuvenate your eye area or give your entire face a lift.
