What Is A Non-Surgical FACELIFT?
A non-surgical facelift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce the visible signs of ageing and restore the skin’s texture, facial definition and elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
The demand for non-surgical facelift options has exploded in recent years and there are several options available on the market in Australia. After trialling many of the leading technologies, the medical team at The Harley Clinic settled on Ultraformer III as the clear winner. The advantage of a non-surgical treatment over surgery is that the cost is less, it carries less risk and you can get back to your normal routine quickly, meaning that there isn’t the recovery or downtime that is associated with surgery.
Visible signs of ageing skin can be distressing for many people, particularly in today’s society, when presenting the best version of yourself is important. Not many of us are pleased by the thought of sagging skin or when one wrinkle appears, it is not long before more follow.
Prematurely ageing skin is a particular problem in Australia, where as much as 80% of skin ageing can be linked to sun exposure.

Ultraformer III is one of the recent breakthroughs in non-surgical skin tightening and lifting technologies. The device activates your body’s natural healing processes to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin as well as tightening underlying muscles.
One of the key benefits of Ultraformer III over other skin tightening/ lifting treatments are the four precise depths that are targeted. This means you will see immediate results post treatment and will continue to see progressive results for the following six months.
Ultraformer III – The ultimate non-surgical facelift
4.5mm depth – Targeting the SMAS layer (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System), this is an area of musculature of the face that is manipulated during facial cosmetic surgery or a surgical facelift. Ultraformer targets and remodels this layer in a very subtle way with minimal damage to the subcutaneous tissue.
3mm depth – Targeting old collagen, this is designed to remodel collagen, generating new and stronger collagen in your skin.
2mm depth – used to target wrinkles and skin around the eye and upper lip area.
1.5mm depth – subdermal targeting to improve skin tone and texture.
The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to perform on one area such as the face or neck.

We recommend a full treatment and then a top up treatment after three months. We find this gives the best and longest lasting results. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6 to 12 months.
