There are many benefits to having a facelift including the ability to look younger, feel more confident and reducing the signs of aging and wrinkles. There are different ways you can go about getting a facelift but what is the difference between a surgical and non-surgical facelift?

A surgical facelift generally involves a procedure performed under anesthetic that can last up to 5 hours. Multiple incisions are made to the face so the surgeon can reach the underneath of the skin along with the fat and muscle beneath. The excess skin and fat is removed and the incisions closed.

After this a drain may be inserted under the skin to clear any excess fluid or blood after surgery. Bandages are also applied to the individual’s face to protect the closed incisions. The healing process after surgery can result in time off work until everything has healed and the bandages can be removed.

After a facelift surgery, when the bandages are removed the results may not be what you expect. There have even been some horrific stories where people have received major scarring or implications due to facelift surgery. In the best case scenario there is still a small amount of scarring on an individual’s face where the incisions have been made.

In comparison, non-surgical facelifts do not involve anesthetic, incisions, down time or the possibility of scarring. It is non invasive and works with the skin to tighten and reduce the signs of aging. This is an excellent alternative for people on the go and who want to avoid surgical procedures.

Our Sublime Non-Surgical Facelift uses infrared and bipolar radio frequency technology to create controlled heat in the deeper layers of your skin. This helps stimulate the collagen fibres under your skin and shortens them for long term results.

You will start to see visible results after just one session which will change the way you look making you feel younger and more confident. With multiple sessions your skin will increasingly improve with amazing results after just one month!
