What Is A Non-Surgical Face Lift?
This ‘non-surgical’ facelift is actually a non-invasive procedure suitable for the 35-55 year old age group, employing radiofrequency technology to tighten loose skin by using heat to shrink tissues and stimulate collagen growth.
It is also called the ‘Thermacool Facelift’ because it has a cooling spray to protect the surface skin. No anaesthesia or down time is required and the procedure takes between one and two hours to perform.
