No Filler Facelift: Reverse The Signs of Ageing Naturally

Last Modified: October 27, 2022

If you want to rejuvenate your appearance and fight the effects of ageing and gravity, you may have considered getting professional cosmetic treatment.

In the world of cosmetic treatments, there are two schools of thought.

The first school of thought there are surgical treatments, of which the facelift is the most popular.

The second school of thought, established in the 90s, offers non-surgical solutions to improve your skin without going under the knife. A very popular treatment is dermal fillers

The second category also includes the No Filler Facelift (the main topic of this post, but more on that later).


A rhytidectomy or more commonly known as a facelift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the face and neck to give the face a tighter appearance.

In the past, the facelift was considered the ultimate solution for patients who want to shed years off their faces.

This procedure helps people regain the youthful, fresh appearance they desire.

The muscles and fat that naturally sit below the ears are tightened, while the tissue between the jaw and chin is stretched upward to sharpen the jawline.

The skin above the eyes is also smoothed to make them appear less wrinkled and to lift the eyelids.

However, this traditional surgical approach can be invasive and risks making the skin look overly tight and unnatural, not to mention the long downtime required for healing.

Facelift with Dermal Filler

Injectable dermal fillers (also known as soft tissue fillers, injectable cosmetic fillers, facial fillers or wrinkle fillers) are soft tissue fillers injected into the skin to restore lost volume, smooth out fine lines and deep wrinkles, and enhance the natural contours of the face.

Filler treatments are most commonly used on the face, but can also be used in other problem areas of the body such as the neck and hands.

The filler plumps up the desired injection site, filling in the targeted wrinkle, furrow, line or areas of bone loss.

Compared to a facelift, dermal filler is much less invasive and has a significantly shorter recovery time. For this reason, dermal fillers have gained popularity over the years.

Among the different types of fillers on the market, we at Dr. Aesthetica prefer hyaluronic acid-based fillers because they look the most natural and give us the best flexibility for contouring a patient's face.

For example, we may use a filler with smaller molecules for a shallow area like the tear trough (under the eyes), but choose a filler with high viscosity and larger molecules for contouring the cheeks

This means you can achieve the same results with dermal fillers and reverse the signs of ageing naturally without going under the knife.

What if I don’t want to get surgery or dermal filler injections? Is there any other option?

I have some good news for you.

No Filler Facelift

Skinpen microneedling

Thanks to the development of modern technology and aesthetic medicine, facelift procedures and techniques are constantly evolving.

For many people, facelifts or dermal fillers are a perfect choice. However, for some people, a facelift can be too invasive.

There are also some people who have had bad experiences with injectable fillers in the past or who have allergies to certain products.

For this reason, we have put together a treatment plan called No Filler Facelift.

Here is some more information about the No Filler Facelift that may interest you:

  • This is not surgery. This means no pain and minimal downtime. In fact, most people can carry on their daily lives as usual after the treatment.
  • There are no needle injections, which makes it perfect for those who do not want fillers.
  • The results are completely natural-looking. You never have to worry about looking overly taut, over-the-top or over-filled. Look refreshed and lifted, but keep people guessing!
  • Changes the skin from the inside out. Most of the skin ageing woes originate in the dermis. The No Filler Facelift targets the deeper layers of the skin and corrects the root causes of sagging skin (collagen and elastin loss)

The No Filler Facelift involves a combination of several non-surgical treatments to achieve one goal - to tighten your face!

By combining different treatments, 'harmonisation and rejuvenation' is achieved, making the entire face look more youthful and refreshed while looking as natural as possible.

The list of treatments includes:

Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening. The RF machine (which looks like an oversized curling tong - only without the clip) delivers heat to deeper layers of the skin.

This fires up your fibroblasts (cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue), stimulates the body's own collagen production and accelerates cell turnover.

The end result is the skin becomes firmer and thicker over time

Micro-needling with growth factors is an innovative technique that uses a hand-held device to create dozens of tiny, controlled injuries to the outer layers of the skin.

The goal is to stimulate the body's natural wound-healing process.

As the skin heals, the old skin is replaced with stronger, tighter and firmer new skin that also looks much more youthful.

While microneedling is most commonly performed on the face, it can also be safely used on the neck, chest, and even the backs of the hands.

There are many different microneedling devices on the market, but the technique is often considered most effective when performed with the SkinPen.

Among the many benefits of the SkinPen is that it can be adjusted to target different depths. This allows us to tailor the treatment to your exact skin needs.

This procedure is made even more robust by the use of powerful growth factors. These growth factors are applied directly to the site and allow for faster and more complete healing while reducing scarring and increasing collagen production.

Our Treatment Package

With both treatments, you will begin to see results within a week of the first procedure. With continued treatments, you will notice further tightening and firming of the skin.

After about 5 treatments you will notice a significant improvement in your skin: It becomes more radiant, and firmer and maintains an overall healthy glow.
