Surgical versus non-surgical facelift – advantages and disadvantages

Surgical versus non-surgical facelift

It’s no secret that as we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness as collagen production decreases. Unfortunately, the ageing process is not reversible, but nowadays, technology has reached an extremely advanced level that helps you achieve that ‘youth without ageing’ you desire. The signs of ageing on your skin can be erased with a facelift.

Surgical versus non-surgical facelift

The surgical facelift has been used for a very long time and aims to reduce wrinkles and deep lines on the complexion through invasive incisions around the face. Such a surgical procedure removes sagging muscles and excess skin, leaving a smooth face without wrinkles or other signs of aging. A non-surgical or non-invasive facelift has exactly the same effect as a surgical facelift, the main difference being that it is performed without anesthesia and without cuts. Here are the advantages of a non-surgical facelift:

  • The patient does not require hospitalization for this procedure,
  • No incisions are made, so no scars remain,
  • There is no risk of post-operative complications.

If you are afraid of surgery or for various medical reasons cannot undergo such a procedure, you can easily opt for a non-surgical facelift because there are no contraindications. Not to mention that the non-surgical option is also the most affordable.

Who can have a non-surgical facelift?

You can opt for a non-surgical facelift not only when you notice that you have wrinkles or deep lines on your skin, but also when you notice that your eyebrows have lowered in an unsightly way above your eyes, that dark circles under your eyes are prominent, and that creases appear in your neck or that your skin has aged. Many celebrities turn to this non-invasive method of rejuvenation because it is quick, painless and has no side effects. Some people notice some tenderness after the procedure, but it is not long-lasting and goes away on its own after about 24 hours. Most of the time only one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results, but this may differ from person to person.

In our clinic we use Lipofirm Pro technology which actually combines two other technologies – TriLipo Radiofrequency (RF) and TriLipo and Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA). It is a completely painless procedure. Most clients lie back on the table and relax while the machine does its work and stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. The result is visible to the naked eye (for some people after the first session, for others some time after the treatment) and consists of improved elasticity, fading of fine lines, deep wrinkles or dark circles. Results can last up to 2 years, after which it is recommended to repeat the treatment. However, all these treatment and results issues will be discussed during a visit to our clinic. The specialists will examine your skin, explain the right treatment methods and what results you should expect. Non-surgical facelift works in 3 directions: it restores firmness to the skin, lifts it (just like in youth) and stimulates collagen production for a rejuvenating process. Whether you’re dealing with dark circles, deep wrinkles, fine expression lines or sagging skin, you should consider a non-invasive facelift. You relax while the Lipofirm Pro machine restores your youthfulness. No pain and no side effects.
