When you think of a facelift, it is natural to picture going under the knife and nursing a swollen face in the pursuit of a more youthful look – but with a non-surgical lower facelift jowls can be targeted without the need for surgery or having to worry about a lengthy recovery time.
A non-surgical lower facelift uses non-invasive methods to lift, smooth and rejuvenate the areas of the face around the mouth, chin and neckline.
Targeting jowls, nasolabial folds, turkey neck, thinning lips and marionette lines treatment is quick, involves minimal downtime and sees excellent results.
With a non-surgical facelift jowls and wrinkles can be transformed
A facelift is often referred to as a catch-all procedure where the entire face is given ‘a lift’ – and while this may be the ultimate result people very often have different issues when it comes to the signs of ageing on the face.
For some, crows’ feet and frown lines may be their main problem while for others it could be deep lines that run from the nose to mouth or from the mouth to their jaw – known as nasolabial and marionette lines respectively.
What is a non-surgical lower facelift?
A non-surgical lower facelift focuses on the lower part of the face – concentrating on the area below the nose. Using aesthetic treatments, such as fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments, a lower facelift will smooth our areas of skins affected by lines and bring volume and lift to saggy skin, such as jowls.
A non-surgical lower facelift achieves almost instant results, with minimal downtime needed. Ahead of the procedure your clinician will discuss with you the changes that you want to see. Common issues include:
- ‘Turkey’ neck
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Thinning lips
- Saggy neck
- Sagging jawline
- Loss of definition
- A tired-looking face
In a non-surgical facelift, a combination of treatments can be used to achieve the desired effect. Primarily this will be dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body and helps to maintain moisture and elasticity. This is injected into the skin to help boost moisture levels to smooth out wrinkles and folds within the skin, as well as bring volume and definition. Lip fillers are specially made to add definition and smoothness to the lips.
Anti-wrinkle treatments may also be used to target deep lines. These work by injecting a chemical into the skin that blocks nerve signals, forcing the muscle to relax.
What to expect from a non-surgical lower facelift
In the weeks following your treatment you can expect your skin to appear smoother and brighter, wrinkles to be diminished, and definition returned to facial features. By taking an all-in-one approach through a non-surgical facelift, rather than individual treatment, the face as a whole should look younger and rejuvenated.
A major benefit of a non-surgical lower facelift is how quickly results can be achieved. Treatment can be carried out in one session and downtime to recover is minimal, although the face may be tender for up to a week.
The results can be seen almost immediately and will last on average for 12-14 months or longer.
