Cosmetic facelift surgery is a major procedure that will generally entail anywhere from one to two weeks off work, depending on how long bruising and swelling takes to subside. On top of this, prices are upwards of $8000 and, as with all surgeries, carry a risk. Not surprisingly, non-surgical facelifts have gained momentum and there is a growing waitlist for the treatments.
The liquid facelift and microcurrent facelift are the most commonly practised methods here, although results are not as dramatic as cosmetic surgery. “A non-surgical facelift will not provide the extreme results that the surgical route does but rather a more youthful, ‘just been on holiday’ glow without the risk or downtime,” explains Pitsilis. A liquid facelift utilises dermal fillers to fill in deeper lines and wrinkles, delivering instant results. Similarly, a microcurrent facelift produces immediate results through tiny currents, which stimulate muscle tone and enhance skin tissue. “It combines waveform technology, with the naturally occurring bio-electric current of the body to achieve instantly visible results on sagging muscles and skin,” says
