Non-surgical face and neck lift

at Dr Deborah McManners’ clinic

Lifting, firming and rejuvenating skin in a non-surgical way that’s comparable to a traditional facelift takes skill, expertise and experience. Dr McManners’ understanding of facial anatomy and collagen remodelling combined with the use of leading therapies and technologies makes this objective a reality.

Our non-surgical face and neck lift is a bespoke treatment that’s tailored to each individual patient. After assessing your skin in depth, a personal treatment plan will be developed. This takes a multi-pronged approach for optimum results and includes fractional laser skin resurfacing, PDO thread lift and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) therapy.

Fractional laser skin resurfacing helps to trigger the body’s natural healing by delivering fractional laser energy to the dermis which creates and tissue coagulation. The healing response then prompts production of fresh collagen and hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.*

HIFU treatment uses highly-focused acoustic energy to create thermal coagulation zones within the skin. This triggers a healing response resulting in the formation of new collagen. Both treatments can be effective in targeting specific concerns such as an ageing neck, drooping brow and jowls as well as firming and rejuvenating skin overall.*

For the PDO thread lift, fine threads are placed under the skin. Dr McManners is highly experienced in then tensing the threads precisely to create an immediate lifting effect. The threads also stimulate collagen production for longer-term results.*

Your questions answered

  1. What does fractional laser skin resurfacing involve?

    This innovative technology delivers a large number of micro-dots of laser energy per square centimetre of skin treated. It does not wound or remove any skin (non-ablative). The energy creates narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation into the skin’s deeper layers. This process is known as fractional photothermolysis which prompts the production of new collagen.* The fractional laser is applied via a hand-held device.

  2. Why have you chosen this particular technology?

    The fractional laser skin resurfacing that we use delivers greater energy per microbeam with more penetration (up to 1mm) than peer/competing devices. This stimulates quick healing within the surrounding deep tissue for more effective skin correction and long-term collagen remodelling.*

  3. What is HIFU treatment?

    HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound. This pioneering therapy uses HIFU energy to create thermal coagulation zones at 2 selected depths within the skin. The process triggers a healing response resulting in the formation of new collagen. HIFU can help to firm, lift and tighten skin while targeting specific areas such as brow and jowl lifting.*

  4. How long until I see results?

    This varies from one individual to the next, but most patients begin to notice an improvement in lift and contour within 4 weeks. Optimum results should be seen around 3 months.*

  5. What does the PDO in PDO thread lift stand for?

    PDO stands for polydioxanone which is what the threads are made of. This biodegradable synthetic polymer is used in medicine to make sutures and prosthetic devices.

  6. What does the treatment involve?

    Threads are then deployed under the skin using a fine micro-needle. The lifting effects can be seen immediately.*

“Over time, I’d noticed that my brow area had ‘dropped’ and my neck looked saggy. I looked tired and drained but didn’t want to go down the surgical route. The non-surgical face and neck lift was perfect for me and I love the results as they look so natural.”
