Many people who attend my clinic are under the impression that plastic surgery procedures are the only way to reverse the signs of aging and the development of wrinkles? However this is not the case. With the advent of semi-permanent fillers such as Radiesse we can now offer a non- surgical lift which can reverse the signs if aging in a lunch time treatment.

What happens during the treatment?

Generally speaking, a liquid facelift involves placing large amounts of fillers into the face to create a more youthful appearance. Sometimes the procedure may involve using muscle relaxant injections in combination with Radiesse. The effects of a liquid facelift lasts between 9-12 months.

The benefits?

So, what are the benefits of a non-surgical facelift over plastic surgery? There is usually minimal discomfort with this procedure and most patients experience little downtime. It should be pointed out that bruising may occur with any procedure even in very skilled hands. Plastic surgery procedures are associated with greater downtime such as swelling and bruising.

Who is it for?

A non-surgical facelift is suitable for people who want to restore a youthful appearance without the knife. It is ideal for an individual who is starting to loose volume. A liquid facelift does not treat facial jowls or neck laxity. Plastic surgery on the other hand ideal for individuals with skin laxity or sagging.  In summary, it is important to point out that a liquid facelift is more ideally suited to a younger patient that truly doesn’t need a true facelift. The treatment can restore volume to the cheekbones, jawline, under eye hollows, deep lines and wrinkles..

How much does it cost?

Radiesse cost starts at €350 per syringes. For a liquid face procedure clients may need up to six syringes in a single session.
