Non surgical face lifts come in two different forms, which can achieve different effects for your skin. You will have a chance to learn more about the treatments and their effects during your initial consultation at the clinic in London. You will need to think about what you want to achieve with your cosmetic treatment in order to choose the right type of facelift.

The 8 Point Face Lift

The 8 point non surgical face lift uses dermal fillers to plump up and lift your skin. The fillers are injected into eight key points on each side of your face. The dermal fillers can achieve the following effects:

  • Adds volume where needed in order to create a plump, youthful effect
  • Lifts your face at eight key points where the effects of ageing show
  • Hyaluronic acid fillers stimulate collagen production to improve the condition of your skin

The Vampire Face Lift

The vampire facelift is an alternative form of non surgical face lift that uses injections of platelet rich plasma. The platelets are collected from your own blood and injected in a concentrated form. The effects are very different as the treatment doesn’t add any extra volume to your face. Instead it affects the natural growth and regeneration of your skin cells:

  • PRP stimulates the release of growth factors, which plump up the cells in your skin
  • Fibroblasts are stimulated to create collagen, which improves skin condition and elasticity
  • Production of fat cells under the skin is stimulated, which can add more volume
  • The treatment is targeted to the parts of the face that need it, but it can affect a wider area than dermal fillers

The two types of non surgical face lifts work in different ways. Although some of the effects, such as the boost to collagen production are similar, they can also achieve very different results. It is important to consider what you are trying to achieve when you are deciding which type of treatment is right for you. You will get plenty of advice to help you to make the right choice of treatment during your initial consultation at Dermadoc.
