Non-Surgical Facelift Options

Non-Surgical FaceliftAgeing is something we cannot stop, and while we age, the signs of getting older become more and more apparent. Young looking skin changes and becomes dry, cracked and develops wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing. While diet, exercise and sun exposure affect how our skin ages, there are ways to delay and undo some of the damage and give yourself a younger look. For many years, the only way to reverse the signs of ageing was through a surgical facelift, a process that comes with serious risk and at a very high cost. However, in recent years the developments of non-surgical treatments have revolutionized the anti-ageing community with lower cost, safer and effective treatments.

There Are Many Kinds of Non-Surgical Facelifts:

Acetyl Hexapeptide

A recent development involves a cream like solution containing 10 per cent acetyl hexapeptide-8. These solutions have shown to reduce wrinkle depths by 30 per cent after thirty days of use. The way it works is by blocking nerve signals in the facial muscles, creating a temporary freezing effect on that area of the face.


DMAE or Dimethyl ethanolamine is another kind of cream that contains high concentrations of amino acids. These amino acids can be used to tighten skin, reduce fine wrinkles and remove fine lines. These creams are ideally used early in the ageing process when wrinkles or lines are first appearing and not with well sunk in wrinkles.

Home Rejuvenation Kits

These tools, commonly using high frequency radio waves to massage, heat and induce enriched oxygen to the pores have been around for about a decade now and have shown positive effects against ageing. Fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, puffy eyes, and saggy tired complexions are apparently remedied with these systems. The skin also tightens and prolonged use may deliver great results.


Cosmetic acupuncture uses healing methods through traditional Chinese treatments to help with anti-ageing. Tiny needles inserted into the skin help to increase circulation, which promotes collagen production. This helps to reduce fine lines and delivers plump, fresh looking skin.

Filler Treatment

Filler treatments involve injecting a hyaluronic acid dermal filler into the skin to plump it up, fill deep wrinkles and enhance ageing lips. The treatments can be used nearly everywhere except around the eyes where it is usually not advised. The small quantity injection sometimes results in minor swelling but clears up quickly and results can last for over a year before dissipating.

Laser Treatments

The skin-tightening, non-surgical laser treatment involves using infrared light to heat the skin, causing a tightening in the collagen structure. The duration of these treatments can last for up to a year, and the results are usually visible after only a single treatment. However, for optimum results most recommend having six or more ongoing treatments for full effectiveness of the treatment.

While the major benefit of a surgical facelift is the duration in which it lasts, the increased cost and risk make it less ideal compared to newer non-surgical facelift auctions. These non-surgical facelifts offer great temporary benefits to anyone looking for a younger look, without the major cost or risk.
