Facelift Techniques for a Natural Look

If you’re planning to get a rhytidectomy or another similar procedure, you’ve likely spent hours researching the different types of face lift procedures, what each procedure is like, and how much each one costs. If you’ve started to feel overwhelmed by the research process, you’re not alone. Finding all of this info can be a daunting task.

With our help, you can find the info you need to make an informed decision about the best procedure for your needs and lifestyle. If you’re in the market for a rhytidectomy, then Luxe Skin is the place to go. We offer many options for a non-surgical facelift in Glasgow so that, once you’ve done your research and spoken with our professional team, you can plan the look you’ve always wanted.

Non-Surgical and Minimally-Invasive Facelifts

When you think of a rhytidectomy or facelift, you most likely think of the invasive surgical procedure that has an intensive recovery time. Did you know, though, that there are plenty of non-surgical or minimally-invasive types of facelifts, like a Spring Thread Lift or FaceTite? These may be more viable options than an invasive surgical procedure.


If you’re looking for a minimally invasive rhytidectomy, then FaceTite and NeckTite are exactly what you’re looking for. FaceTite is a facelift procedure that uses radiofrequency to help tighten, firm, and lift skin. The FaceTite tool is inserted into a narrow space under your skin and the radiofrequency melts the fat on your face and neck and tightens the skin there, giving you near-permanent results like a surgical facelift. The best part? FaceTite procedures only require three small incisions on either side of your jaw to achieve fantastic results.

Instead of the more major anaesthesia you might need for a full surgical procedure, a local anaesthetic is more than enough to keep you from feeling too much pain during the procedure. Additionally, because the procedure doesn’t require major surgery, you won’t feel much—if any—pain during the healing process.

With a FaceTite or NeckTite procedure, you can enjoy long-lasting results that can rival those of traditional facelifts—but without the lengthy recovery time. These procedures typically last for five years or more, making them an attractive option for those looking for a minimally invasive way to improve their appearance.

Spring Thread Lift

The Spring Thread Lift—also known as the One-Stitch Face Lift—is another minimally invasive facelift procedure that involves using the patented Spring Thread system. The Spring Thread Lift uses a flexible and elastic thread that anchors into the skin and lifts the brows, cheeks, jaws, and other areas of the face. Essentially, the Spring Thread Lift derives its name from the process of “stitching” the skin together, removing wrinkles and fine lines.

Spring Thread Lifts are extremely safe and are made using materials that are safe to use under the skin. They’re elastic, allowing you to move easily and naturally, and can last three years or more before the elasticity in them starts to fail. This procedure also causes minimal scarring, takes very little healing time, and can easily be done under a local anaesthetic.

PDO Thread Lift

A PDO Thread Lift is very similar to the Spring Thread Lift but differs in the length of time the procedure lasts. Much like the Spring Thread Lift, the PDO Thread Lift is achieved by inserting threads under the skin to anchor onto it, lifting the jaw, brows, cheeks, or any other part of the face.

Unlike the Spring Thread Lift, however, the threads involved with the PDO Thread Lift dissolve in time. The results don’t last as long either because of this, fading in 12-15 months. While some instances of the PDO Thread Lift can last longer, it’s not designed to be permanent, meaning that you’ll have to get repetitive treatments if you decide to go this route.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Facelifts

While surgical facelifts do have their benefits, you must also consider what goes into having them done. A full surgical procedure means that you’ll likely have a hospital stay, go under full anaesthesia, and will have to set aside several weeks to heal. With a non-surgical facial, you won’t have to worry about any of that.

Because non-surgical facelifts can be completed with a local anaesthetic, there’s no need to head into the hospital or have an overnight hospital stay. Instead, you can head right into your cosmetic physician’s office, have the procedure done, and leave the same day. Also, because there is no major surgery involved, your healing process will be much quicker and much less painful. This means you can get back to your daily routine and enjoy your newly improved appearance in no time at all.

Non-surgical facelifts may not be permanent like surgical facelifts, but some options like the FaceTite procedure and the Spring Thread procedure can last for five years or more if well maintained. While that may not be permanent, you might consider it a beneficial trade-off for the lack of stress the procedure will put you through.

In the end, whether you decide to go the non-surgical or the surgical route is all dependent upon what you most want out of your procedure. However, having as much information as you can about the procedures can help you make an informed decision.

    I got fillers done on my nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines, I don’t really like needles but was pleasantly surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, there was a little nip and the procedure was over and done with, in no time at all. Dr Qureshi was very professional, he talked me through the procedure as he was doing it, putting me at ease. I saw a slight difference straight away but as the day went on it got better. I am amazed at the results, I will definitely be going back for more and I will be recommending Dr Qureshi to all my friends.


    Vanessa B

    My friend Clare recommended Doctor Q to me. I had been going to a different clinic and had some problems after lip fillers but that practitioner would not return my calls and would not help me. Doctor Q was able to fix my lips and I just love them. Thanks so much Doctor Q.


    Pamela S

    Dr Q is very experienced and professional! He makes you feel totally at ease and he “really” listens to you & tailors his treatment to suit you personally. I have been to a couple of different places for my Botox but Dr Q is by far the best. If you want quality care, treatments and results then you should definitely go to Luxe Skin. Thanks again Doctor Q – see you soon 🙂


    Gayle C

    My sister and myself went to Dr Qureshi’s clinic in Glasgow, he was very professional and talked us through the process of Botox injections, as it was our first time. We were very anxious but Dr Qureshi answered all our queries and explained everything very professionally and put us at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Qureshi and will return as we were both delighted & very happy with our before & after care and much softer younger looking eyes/frown lines. I also contacted Dr Qureshi by text message and he always replied very quickly & professionally. He also does discounts on 1 or more areas. Highly recommended and very professional clinic with affordable prices.


    Alison M

    I went to a national chain clinic before and did not realise that the treatment was not done by a doctor. They actually wanted much more money when I said I wanted a doctor to carry out my treatment. At Luxe Skin, I am always seen by Doctor Q. He is so easy to contact at any time. No receptionists or secretaries, you speak to him directly. I had Botox and fillers and I love the results. My forehead is so smooth and the deep lines around my nose have faded away.


    Claire J

    I’ve been getting botox for over two years now in South Africa. After moving to the UK I had it done with one other provider. It was the worst experience, painful, ineffective and I had a black eye for two weeks. I came to see Dr Qureshi feeling a little anxious. He instantly put me at ease and it was the best results I’ve ever had, completely painless and he got it right on the 1st go. Thrilled with the results and I will become a regular of his now.


    Louise M

    I came to Dr Qureshi as i felt i had developed smokers’ lines around my mouth which had been bothering me for many years. He recommended Fillers and Botox on my upper lip and I am delighted with the results. The lines have completely gone and i really feel like a new woman. Major confidence boost and I will be most certainly a regular client as I was very well looked after also. Thank you.


    Caroline R

    Thank you Dr Q for amazing results! I’ll recommend you to my friends. I’ll be booking my face plan this week thanks again! My friend will be booking with you this week too.


    Linda R

    A few months ago I went to Dr Usman Qureshi for a wrinkle reduction treatment, I was so delighted with my treatment, I even took my mum and sister along with me this time so we could all have the treatments together. My mum had never had the treatment before and so was a little nervous, Dr Q put her at ease right away and carried out the procedure quickly and professionally. We are all delighted with the results and looking and feeling fabulous! Thanks Dr Q, see you soon.


    Stephen W

    The hollows under my eyes used to get me down but I was scared to get anything done. Doctor Q explained the procedure to me. He showed me before and after pictures of what it would look like. And I love the result. I wish I would have got this done much sooner.


    Nicole C

    This was my first time having Botox. I wanted to get rid of my frown lines and lift my eyebrows. Dr Qureshi explained everything to me clearly and answered all my questions (and I had a lot). He has very light hands, I hardly felt a thing. I will definitely be back with my friends.


    Jasmine H

    Thanks Doctor Q, I love my lips. Thanks for using the anaesthetic, it made a huge difference. I was really nervous but you made me feel at ease. See you in a few months.


    Emma W

    I went to Dr Qureshi for my first ever Botox treatment, he was extremely professional and listened to what I wanted and what my expectations were. Treatment was quick and painless and I was made to feel at ease. After a few days, I could see visible effects and it is everything I expected. I will now return for subsequent treatments and am very happy with the service he provides.


    Joan S

    Whenever I have had Botox in the past, I had these annoying lines above my eyebrows which would never go away. I went to Dr Q and he got rid of them without any problem! I am thrilled.



    Whenever I had Botox in the past, my eyebrows dropped. I kept telling my previous practitioner but they said that’s the way it will be for me. I was amazed at the results at Luxe Skin. My frown has gone and eyebrows have lifted. I feel so much fresher. I have even signed up to Face Plan at Luxe Skin.


    Charlotte R

    I wanted fillers under my eyes to fill the hollows. I was scared as this as it is such a sensitive area. Doctor Q used a cannula and was very gentle. Amazing result. Thank you so much Dr Q.


    Yvonne M

    I used to go to this other place to get Botox done because it was cheap. But the last time my eyelid drooped. I called the practitioner but she kept ignoring me and was very rude. I went to Doctor Q. He explained that side effects can happen but there are ways to reduce the risk. He gave me some eye drops which helped by eyelid droop and after a month it resolved completely. I now get Botox at Luxe Skin. I would highly recommend Doctor Q.


    Mary B

    I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.



    I had my first ever Botox in 2 areas and after just 5 days can see a very positive difference. Dr Q is very professional and his clinic reflects this too. It was carried out after a consultation and did not take long. Luxe also offer payment plans which is also a big plus.I will definitely be a returning customer as I have every confidence in Dr Q. and love the result on my 54 year old face!Many thanks.


    Lee M

    Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
