Face Lift & Neck Lift Newcastle
During the ageing process the skin progressively loses its elasticity and collagen while the muscles tend to slacken and drop. The stresses of daily life, effects of gravity and exposure to sun can be seen to age the face and the skin. The folds and smile lines deepen, the corners of the mouth droop, the jaw line sags and the skin of the neck becomes slack. Around the eyes, the eyebrows droop and the skin of the eyelids gathers in loose folds.
The first sign of ageing within the skin is the development of fine wrinkles around the lips, at the outer corners of the eye and lines of expression. The rate at which this happens varies from one person to another and is probably determined by the genes. Ageing of the skin of the face does not necessarily reflect the rate that the rest of our body and mind is ageing and many people feel frustrated that the face they see in the mirror is not the one they feel should be there. Substantial weight loss can produce similar changes in facial appearance to those of the ageing process.
Face and Neck lift Surgery
A facelift is an operation to tighten and lift the loose skin on the face and below the eyes. Anything above the eyes is a defined as a brow-lift and a neck-lift tightens and lifts the skin of the neck area.
A facelift gives the best results if your face and neck have started to sag but your skin still has some elasticity and your bone structure is strong and well defined. Most people who have facelifts are in their 40s to 60s, but facelifts can be done successfully on people in their 70s or 80s.
Firstly you will meet with a surgeon to talk about why you want surgery and what you want to achieve. The surgeon will make a note of any illnesses you have or have had in the past. They will also make a record of any medication you are on, including herbal remedies and medicines that are not prescribed by your doctor. The surgeon will measure your height and weight to make sure that it is safe to do an operation and if you are overweight, or planning to become pregnant, your surgeon may suggest delaying your operation. A facelift improves the lower half of the face, particularly the jawline. If you have sagging eyebrows and wrinkles on your forehead, your surgeon may suggest a browlift.
Non Surgical Face Lift
Face and neck lifts are the most effective ways of tightening the skin of the face and neck area. They do not get rid of wrinkles around your eyes, forehead and mouth. Other treatments such as Botox injections can help with this and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
HIFU Face Lift Treatment is a great alternative to having surgery and involves no needles, downtime or injections of chemicals. Skin tightening and defined face lift with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary alternative to a cosmetic facelift and neck lift surgery.
Originally, ultrasound has proven to be an excellent tool for a variety of medical procedures for decades. In recent years, it has also become a very useful technology in the field of cosmetic procedures for great results without the need for surgery or invasive methods. The treatment is a great anti-ageing procedure and HIFU is used to tighten, lift and rejuvenate facial, neck, and chin tissues. The procedure is pain free and results can last up to 3 years depending on your own natural ageing process.

How Does HIFU Work
The HIFU treatment stimulates collagen re-growth by focusing ultrasound waves at selected depths below the skin, these include 1.5mm, 3.0mm and 4.5mm. Skin tightening occurs via collagen contraction, which enables the face, neck, or chest to improve in appearance as new collagen continues to build. The result following the HIFU treatment is a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines while it also lifts and tightens areas of sagging skin, and rejuvenates skin to restore a more youthful appearance. This is all achieved by creating non-invasive ablation and by directing heat to specific layers of the skin. In a single treatment, it can give an immediate result that will continue to improve in the following months as the client’s body produces new collagen and elastin.
