Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are becoming increasingly popular as a way of improving the facial features due to modern advances in technique & equipment. These treatments help to restore the three-dimensional facial contours without the requirement of surgery. The non-surgical facelift treatments can improve lost volume in the face as well as treat sagging loose skin commonly associated with the jowls.

In non-surgical facelift treatments, Botox, dermal fillers and PDO Threads or a combination of them is used to attain the desired results. Botox helps in smoothing and softening dynamic wrinkles and relaxing muscles causing downwards pull of the face while dermal fillers and PDO Threads are used to restore the lost facial volume and improve the facial contours and sagging skin while also treating the stubborn fat deposits such as those collected in moderate to severe jowls.

Nefertiti treatment is named after an ancient Egyptian queen who was well-known for her well-defined jawline and smooth neck. Therefore, this Botox led treatment is named Nefertiti facelift treatment as it gives a similar effect as that of Nefertiti.

The Nefertiti facelift treatment is a relatively recent technique in which only Botox is used for redefining jawline and smooth the marionette lines on the neck while preventing the effects of ageing, gravity and the loss of elasticity.

Suitable Age Range for Nefertiti facelift treatment

Nefertiti facelift treatment is good for those patients who are in their late 20s and early 30s with early jowling and minor volume loss of the face (especially the cheeks).

Treatment Procedure

In this non surgical facelift treatment, uplifting effect is created in the jawline and neck area by injecting Botox along the jawline as well as in the platysma muscle present in the neck area which pulls the face downwards as well as other small muscles responsible for droopy lips. Botox relaxes the muscles in the jaw and neck while allowing the opposing facial muscles to develop an upward lift. This tightens and rejuvenates the sagging skin and improves the jawline definition giving a younger, well-defined jawline, face and neck. This is a good subtle treatment for younger individuals who wish to obtain a natural and subtle lifting effect.

The possible common side effects of this non-invasive facelift treatment can be swelling and slight bruising in the treated area but it usually go away in few days or a week.

Non-surgical PDO threadlift treatment is a revolutionary and highly innovative facelift treatment which gives outstanding results similar to that of surgical facelift treatment. It is a highly effective and minimally invasive way to treat the sagging and loose facial skin, jawline and jowls.   Though the threads dissolve in 6 months the result lasts for years to come.

PDO threads are well-known for their use in general surgery all around the world. PDO (polydioxanone) is a synthetic fibre which is known for its dual effect. In addition to tightening and lifting the sagging skin it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin within the skin which rejuvenates and improves the skin, its texture and tone.

Non-surgical PDO threadlift treatment improves;

  • Sagging jowls
  • jaw-line definition
  • cheek volume
  • nasolabial folds
  • oral commissures
  • chin & neck skin tightening
  • stubborn fat in chin & jowls

Suitable age range for PDO threadlift treatment

It is excellent option for the patients in their 30s and above. The younger clients want to have this treatment in order to maintain their youthful facial profile while older patients gain the benefits of natural anti-ageing.

PDO Threadlift Procedure

This treatment procedure makes use of PDO threads of various lengths that are inserted into the skin using small needles or blunt cannulas. The treatment area is numbed using local anaesthetic or topical numbing cream or both. The working of PDO threads is almost similar to that of acupuncture needles as during the time the thread is in the skin it stimulates a process called mechanotransduction to stimulate your own collagen. These threads stimulate the production of natural collagen within the skin while inducing lipolysis (destruction of fat cells) and skin tightness.

Results of Treatment

The effects of this non-surgical facelift treatment last for 2-3 years depending on different factors such as age, life style and health of the patient. The treatment gives instant tightening, lifting and slimming effect to the face. However, the full impact of this non-surgical facelift treatment may take 5-6 months to surface. The threads dissolve in approximately 6 months.

Downtime

This depends on the number of threads inserted and type of threads. There are small threads which can be placed in most areas for promoting collagen and skin tightness. These do not have much downtime.   These are very popular among the younger clients wishing to maintain their youthful features. Common side effects with small threads include minor bruising.

Then there are the longer threads called “cogs” which are used to lift sagging skin just like in a surgical facelift except we can insert them using blunt cannula. These “cogs” also dissolve in 6 months but the result obtained lasts for up to 3 years. Depending on the treatment undertaken, it may take up to 7 days for full recovery from swelling & bruises which are common.

Side effects

Most common side effects of the treatment include swelling and bruising. They are temporary and normally resolves in few days. The recovery period from these side effects vary from patient to patient but most activities can be resumed within a few days while full activities can be resumed in 1-2 weeks.
