Restore a youthful, glowing appearance

The Non-Surgical Facelift is a bespoke treatment that restores a youthful, glowing look.

By combining a variety of procedures (e.g. cosmetic injectables and thread lifts), our Aesthetic Doctor will make multiple small adjustments that mimic the reversal of the ageing process in a way that looks and feels natural.

Every Facelift is individually planned following a detailed analysis and consultation (worth £75) – For a limited time only, we are offering this consultation for FREE + 30% OFF the first treatment.

Dr Abs at VL Aesthetics in Carlisle (Cumbria)

Dr. Abs (MChD) (BChD)

Medical Director

Initially graduating in dentistry, Dr. Abs has practised and studied aesthetics under some of the world’s most renowned cosmetic doctors. He brings his wealth of experience not only to VL Aesthetics but to other doctors, dentists, and nurses across the world through lecturing Cosmetic Medicine internationally. Dr. Abs is known for his skilful technique and honest approach. At your Free Consultation, he will advise you about what treatment is right for you, and will make sure that you are suitable. For example, perhaps dermal fillers are appropriate, or perhaps a different treatment (such as an advanced medi-facial) will meet your aims and objectives better.

We tailor make our treatments to suit your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics. Because of this very personal approach, pricing varies from person to person and can only be provided at your Free Consultation.

We are however, very competitively priced in Cumbria, and our treatments come with a convenient payment plan option that allows you to pay in manageable monthly instalments.

There are many different types of cosmetic injectables, and many different brands that use these injectables. At VL Aesthetics, we only use the top brands for our treatments.

The various types of injectables work in different ways. To give you an idea:

Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. It is a sugar-based compound that acts as a powerful humectant - it can carry up to 1000 times its weight in water, giving skin a young and supple appearance. As you get older, your body makes less hyaluronic acid, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. By filling in your fine lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers restore your natural, youthful look.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

To activate muscles, motor neurons release a neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) into the neuromuscular junction. Anti-Wrinkle Injections inhibit this release – they break down the communication between the motor neurons and the muscle cells. This has the effect of relaxing the muscles, and when applied to specific facial areas, will improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

A thread lift is a non-surgical treatment that reverses the signs of ageing by lifting and tightening sagging skin, making it look younger, smoother, and healthier.

During the procedure, dissolvable threads are carefully inserted beneath the surface of the skin. The threads are then tightened and pulled back, giving the skin a lifted, boosted, and rejuvenated appearance.

At VL Aesthetics, our cosmetic doctor uses the latest in threading technology – Aptos Threads with Hyaluronic Acid. Not only are they the longest lasting threads on the market (dissolving in 1.5-2 years), but on top of producing ‘mature’ collagen type 1, they also produce ‘young’ collagen type 3 that creates soft and supple skin.

The Non-Surgical Facelift is very safe if administered correctly by a medical professional – Dr. Abs practises and teaches aesthetics internationally and is more than qualified to carry out the treatment.

However, although the Facelift is very safe, it may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions or for pregnant / breastfeeding women.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not a suitable candidate, we will find out before your treatment begins.

The treatment itself is relatively painless. However, the most common side effects are tenderness and mild bruising around the treated areas.

Should you have any concerns after your treatment, Dr. Abs will be happy to conduct a telephone consultation with you.

Cosmetic injectables / thread lifts can treat many different facial areas. Please examine the image below for more information:

There is no specific age at which you should undergo the treatment – All people age differently and feel differently about how they look. In general, we find that people have the Facelift for the following reasons:

20s – To prevent wrinkles and fine lines from occurring.
30s – To prolong the youthful look as wrinkles and fine lines start to appear.
40s – To tackle wrinkles and fine lines before they are deeply imprinted.
50+ – To improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles and fine lines.

In the first 24 hours post-procedure, please try to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Clean your face with a gentle cleanser and warm water.
  • Try not to wear makeup.
  • Use creams with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to reduce irritation and hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid active skincare products which contain: Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Retinol (Vitamin A), and Vitamin C (in low pH formula). Continue to do so for 3 days post treatment.
  • Do not drink excessive alcohol.
  • Don’t go swimming or to saunas.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise.
  • Avoid direct sunlight. If you absolutely must be outside, be cautious and wear a shaded hat.
  • Try to avoid lying face down.
  • Don’t take Ibuprofen and continue not to for two weeks after the treatment.
