InMode’s Non-Surgical Facelifts: What You Need to Know

InMode’s Non-Surgical Facelifts: What You Need to Know

A non-surgical facelift refers to a minimally invasive or non-invasive treatment that rejuvenates one's appearance by remodelling collagen, tightening skin and improving the skin’s texture. There’s no need for general anaesthesia or time spent in the hospital. In fact, the technology we utilise in our facial contouring devices requires no recovery time, giving you the freedom to fit it into your regular lifestyle

You won’t need to worry about bruising, scarring or taking time off work. You can casually go and get treatment when you’re running errands or on your lunch break rather than meticulously planning out the best time to undergo a more serious procedure. 

If you are considering getting a facelift and want to weigh up your options, a non-surgical facelift is definitely one to consider. Keep reading to learn more about this type of procedure, as well as the many different technology options that are available.


The Growing Popularity of Non-Invasive Procedures

Non-surgical facelifts have grown in popularity over the years as people are less inclined to go ‘under the knife'. This is due to the potential health risks involved and the chance of less natural-looking results. Many also prefer the discretion of a non-surgical facelift, as there are less obvious signs of procedural work, and the healing time is significantly faster

It is an ideal treatment for those who don't want a facelift but would like a bit more than a facial or a filler. It is also common for people in their 30-50s who are looking for preventative care to maintain laxity and focus on anti-aging whilst maintaining a natural appearance. 

What’s the Difference Between Surgical and Non-Surgical Facelifts?

Surgical and non-surgical facelifts are quite different in nature. While surgical facelifts are an invasive procedure that requires large incisions, general anaesthesia and an overnight stay in the hospital – as well as a set recovery time – a non-surgical facelift is not as taxing. 

There are two forms of non-surgical facelifts: non-invasive and minimally invasive. Non-invasive treatments are applied to the outer layer of the skin only. Whether through subdermal needling or microneedling, you won't generally need any form of topical anesthetic for non-invasive treatments. Minimally invasive treatments, such as those offered by InMode Australia, go a step further to provide more significant results by using advanced technologies like radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tightness.

Minimally invasive facelifts typically include localised anaesthetic and incorporate deeper skin penetration. They use more advanced, faster and precisely targeted technology like sub-dermal radio frequencies that help to tone and tighten skin while also melting fat. 

Since there are a number of minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures available, you can choose one that best fits your needs and lifestyle.

4 Different Non-Surgical Facelift Techniques

There are a variety of different procedures and techniques that can deliver exceptional results, all while avoiding the more invasive techniques used in surgical facelifts. These include:

1. Morpheus8

Morpheus8 can be used alone or in conjunction with other InMode technologies. It can achieve everything from comprehensive dermal resurfacing to remodelling subdermal tissues while simultaneously tightening the skin. It uses microneedling and fractional radio frequency to deliver exceptional results with minimal stress to the skin. It was designed to be customisable to match each individual client’s needs, giving you a truly personalised treatment plan. 

2. Define

Our Define collection incorporates Morpheus8, along with the Definecheek, Definechin and Forma technologies. Through a combination of radiofrequency energy that heats the tissues in a comfortable and pain-free way to improve appearance. This collection of treatments is non-invasive, delivering skin-tightening benefits along with a more sculpted look with no needles and no downtime. 

3. AccuTite

For results that can be seen immediately after your treatment, with visible improvement in skin tightening peaking at 6 weeks and lasting up to 12 months, Accutite is our premier choice. Designed specifically for plastic surgeons, AccuTite uses radiofrequency and heating of ultra-precise areas to help reduce fat and improve skin laxity. This minimally invasive treatment is the perfect option for the more delicate areas of the face, including the brows, neck, and around the eye area. 

Through the use of radiofrequency and heating of ultra-precise areas, it can help reduce fat and improve skin laxity. AccuTite can offer a non-surgical facelift in as little as one 20-minute session, completed with local anaesthetic. 

4. FaceTite

Similar to AccuTite, FaceTite offers rapid results with a minimally invasive procedure. It operates in the sub-dermal plane and targets areas with saggy or loose skin. It’s ideal for the jowls and neck, utilising incredibly precise targeting that results in fat coagulation and tissue remodelling. The result is smoother, tighter-looking skin and improved facial contouring with less underlying fat. In contrast with a surgical facelift, FaceTite has significantly less post-procedure swelling and delivers an incredibly natural-looking result. 

Who Should Get Non-Surgical Facelifts?

Non-surgical facelifts are perfect for people of any age who are beginning to experience mild to moderate skin laxity and want to prevent it from worsening. If you have severe skin laxity, you can still utilise these procedures, but a traditional facelift will have more dramatic results. InMode’s range of non-invasive procedures doesn’t involve the risks of general anaesthetic, incisions or a less-natural-looking result. They also have minimal downtime and can be completed in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. 

Do Non-Surgical Facelifts Work?

Yes! Non-surgical facelifts are a great alternative to traditional facelifts, because they offer faster results with significantly less risk while still delivering a transformative look. Recovery is simpler, and the effects can last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on your chosen treatment. 

The improvement in appearance after your non-invasive facelift can be seen instantly, or it can gradually develop over a few weeks or months. As it doesn’t stop the natural aging process, top-up treatments are needed to maintain desired results.

What are the Risks Involved With a Non-Surgical Facelift?

The risk of side effects is significantly lower than with a surgical facelift, but there are still some factors to consider before proceeding. One of the first considerations is ensuring you’re you’re choosing a qualified and experienced practitioner. They should be able to answer any questions you have about whether a treatment is right for you and advise you on any potential risks involved. 

Your provider should also only be using high-quality, genuine equipment and have strict hygiene protocols to ensure that devices are well-maintained and sterile before use. The use of non-sterile, counterfeit or substandard equipment can increase the chances of adverse effects post-procedure. 

After your treatment, you may experience some of the following, depending on the nature of the procedure you chose:

  • Bruising
  • Blisters
  • Bleeding
  • Dry or itchy skin
  • Skin redness
  • Swelling

Aftercare is an important part of the process. Following your clinician's advice will help reduce the chances of any adverse reactions while also improving overall results.
