TOP 3 methods of non-surgical facelift
At a certain age, many are faced with the fact that the skin becomes flabby and swollen, and wrinkles are more noticeable.
Outwardly, this is manifested by a tired look, the appearance of nasolabial folds, drooping of the eyebrows and eyelids, the appearance of a double chin, that is, visual signs of aging.
This is due to age-related changes in the muscle-aponeurotic layer SMAS (Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System). The fact is that over time, this layer loses its elasticity and stretches, as a result of which there is a sagging of the facial skin. In addition, with age, the collagen fibers of the skin exfoliate and become unable to keep the skin toned.
How to deal with this if, on the one hand, cosmetic products (such as masks and creams) do not have the desired effect and do not help to tighten the skin of the face, and on the other hand, you do not want to go under the surgeon’s knife because of the risk of irreversible consequences?
In this case, you should consider a non-surgical facelift, which has a number of advantages.
Benefits of non-surgical lifting:
- has a clearly greater effectiveness in relation to cosmetics
- non-surgical lifting techniques are completely bloodless and safe
- they are relatively comfortable and do not take long
- a non-surgical facelift is characterized by a short or completely absent rehabilitation period. After a non-surgical lifting, there is no recovery period as such.
Facelift without surgery – the best methods
There are many different lifting techniques without surgery, and we would like to introduce you to those that, in our opinion, deserve attention in the first place.
- Ultrasonic SMAS lifting
- Contour facelift
- Fractional RF lifting (microneedle)
Despite the fact that all these techniques are non-surgical and, accordingly, bloodless, they also have certain differences.
Let’s consider each technique in more detail.
Ultrasonic SMAS lifting
Ultrasonic SMAS lifting affects muscles, ligaments, subcutaneous fat packets, and also promotes the formation of new collagen. This, in turn, increases the elasticity of the tissues, helps to reduce the volume in the lower part of the face, which allows you to achieve a clear oval and thus tightens the skin of the face.
Based on the data of clinical studies, ultrasonic SMAS lifting is one of the most effective method of non-surgical lifting. This technique is very popular among the world’s celebrities. For example, it is performed by the forever young Courteney Cox (Monica from Friends) and Jennifer Aniston (you know).
The SMAS lifting procedure is suitable for those who want to get the most effective lifting, but do not want to undergo surgery.
The main advantages of SMAS lifting include:
- This is the maximum possible non-surgical lifting
- Eliminates double chin
- SMAS lifting allows you to achieve a lift of the eyebrows, which makes the gaze more open
- Allows you to create a clearer oval of the face
- Leaves skin firmer
- Slight soreness of the procedure, while for especially sensitive patients it is possible to use anesthesia with a cream
- The technique can be applied to both face and body
- The rehabilitation period after the sessions lasts only a couple of hours
- SMAS lifting refers to one-time procedures, and its effect is noticeable for a year to three
The average cost of the procedure is from 14 to 17 thousand UAH (520 – 630 $).
An additional advantage of the technique is that it can be equally successfully applied both to the face and to the body.
Among the disadvantages of the procedure, it can be pointed out that the result from the use of ultrasonic SMAS lifting may not be satisfactory enough for vegans with a long experience. In addition, the cost of the procedure is quite high in comparison with other methods of non-surgical lifting.
Contour facelift is also called “contour plasty”, “filler lifting” and “vector lifting”
Since the aging process is accompanied by a loss of volume on the face, the missing volume must be replenished. Fillers are used for this. As a result, in addition to filling the missing volume, the effect of tightening the skin of the face also occurs, including by strengthening the anatomical structures of the face, which provides a natural result and a fresher look.
In addition to the lifting effect, contour plastics brilliantly copes with the following tasks:
- make facial features more harmonious;
- increase cheekbones;
- face contour correction;
- enlarge lips;
- elimination of the nasolacrimal groove.
To achieve the desired effect, 1-2 sessions are required. The results of the technique are noticeable for 12-18 months, and the cost is calculated individually, depending on the selected drug.
On average, the cost of a quality drug varies from 6 to 12 thousand UAH (220 – 450 $).
It should be especially noted that injectable facelift with fillers gives excellent results in combination with SMAS lifting. You can be convinced of this by looking at the before / after photos taken with real patients of Esteva Clinic

Fractional RF lifting (microneedle)
The principle of operation of fractional RF lifting is that through microneedles (of course, they are disposable), radio waves are transmitted into the skin, which, as it were, create vertical columns. Later, around these columns, the skin flap is reduced, which provides a lifting effect.
It should be noted that fractional RF lifting differs from a fractional laser similar to it in action, in that it can be used on all types of skin, including tanned skin.
The technique is suitable for patients aged 25 and over with skin defects such as sagging skin, post-acne,
In addition to wrinkles, the method perfectly copes with scars, improves the structure and general condition of the skin, and reduces wrinkles.
The advantages of fractional RF lifting include:
- Good effect on relief skin defects, including not only wrinkles, but also scars;
- Significant improvement in the quality and structure of the skin,
- Has the ability to tighten the skin of the face (making it less flabby);
- Long lasting effect lasting more than a year.
Among the disadvantages of the method are:
- Some soreness requiring cream anesthesia;
- The relative duration of the recovery period (slight redness and swelling of the skin), which can last for several days
The course of procedures is 3-4 sessions with an interval of 2-3 weeks.
The price of one course for a person is 11-15 thousand UAH (400 – 560 $).
