If you are considering a non-surgical facelift treatment in Malaysia, you are in the right place.

The number of options for non-surgical facelifts have increased drastically in recent years, thus making it complicated when it comes to choosing the right one.

A non-surgical face-lift can include a number of different treatments and procedures that aim to address the effects of aging. Non-surgical options for facelifts fall into three categories: replenishing lost volume, resurfacing the superficial skin and tightening deeper tissue. Generally, a range of treatments are used in combination to achieve your overall facial rejuvenation goals.

We will cover the pros and cons of the popular non-surgical facelifts in Malaysia.


1. Ultherapy (First Generation High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)

Ultherapy (HIFU treatment) delivers High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy
 in a bullet-like manner to cause instant tightening of the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer of the face, stimulating collagen production without cutting the skin surface. The SMAS is the muscular layer that plastic surgeons pull and tighten in a surgical facelift procedure.

Ultherapy provides an instant and immediate lifting effect, followed by collagen stimulation over the next 3 months. Both effects are induced by the ultrasound energy. It's also very safe because the machine allows ultrasound visualization of the different structures and layers under the skin, allowing the operator to precisely target the right tissue - there's almost no chance of burns with this treatment.

Pros of Ultherapy:
  1. Instantly visible lift seen (forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, neck) with further improvement over 3 months.
  2. No needles or injections needed.
  3. FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest.
  4. Able to reduce the size of chubby cheeks.
Cons of Ultherapy:
  1. Treatment is pretty painful, although a pain score of 5 - 8/10 can be brought down to 1 - 2/10 with a nerve block.
  2. Efficacy of treatment is variable due to energy level and shot count having variations between different operators.
  3. Not suitable if you are thin-skinned and don’t have much fat on your face.
Ultherapy (HIFU treatment) cost in Malaysia: RM 6,000 to RM 8,000 per session.

Currently, a newer 2nd generation HIFU that is painless and more affordable is available. Please feel free to contact us for more information.


2. Thermage CPT

Thermage uses a radiofrequency (RF) device to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of your skin. The heat helps remodel existing collagen and produce new collagen, which improves skin smoothness and texture.
Pros of Thermage:
  1. Face-lift effect is subtle and gentle, recommended for younger patients between 25 - 40 years old.
  2. No needles or injections (ideal if you are fearful of injections but want some sort of facial rejuvenation).
Cons of Thermage:
  1. Thermage can’t lift moderately saggy tissues and skin in older patients. Not suitable for moderate to severe signs of facial aging.
  2. Chance of skin burns.
  3. Burning discomfort during treatment.
Thermage cost in Malaysia: RM 6,000 to RM 8,000 per session.
Collagen production takes around 6 - 12 weeks, so don't expect obvious results before 6 weeks.

3. Filler Lifts

Dermal fillers have been around for more than 10 years. Previously, doctors used them to fill facial depressions, skin folds and volume loss, although it was recently discovered that they are extremely effective for face-lifting as well.

Common fillers used in Malaysia nowadays are:

  • Restylane, Belotero, Teosyal, Juvederm (Hyaluronic Acid)
  • Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxyapatite)
  • Sculptra (Poly-L-Lactic acid)
  • Ellanse (Polycaprolactone)


There are various filler lift techniques for different purposes. Some of the more popular filler lift techniques include:

a. The Hairline Lift (originated by Dr Peter Huang, a renowned plastic surgeon of Taiwan) – tightening the sides of your face and jowls via fillers placed in your hairline as an anchor. This has an upward pulling force on all your facial muscles, similar to a surgical facelift effect.

b. Radiesse 3D Vector Lift - placement of linear Radiesse filler threads under your skin, along upward vectors of your face. This stimulates contraction and tightening of your skin along those directions.

c. The Butterfly Lift (originated by Dr Puttipong Poomsuwan of Bangkok) – lifting of the true retaining ligaments of the face. It's postulated that depositing the fillers right under those ligaments causes a pressure tenting effect on those ligaments, and thus skin tightening and a "lift" can be witnessed immediately.

Pros of dermal filler lifts:

  1. Instant visible lift seen (cheeks, jowls, smile lines). Good for last-minute lifting before big events.
  2. No downtime.

Cons of dermal filler lifts:

  1. Unable to lift moderate to severely saggy faces.
  2. Large volume of fillers (3 - 7 CCs) needed for full face treatment.
  3. Risk of a chubby-looking face or lumpy skin in inexperienced hands.

Filler Lift cost in Malaysia: RM 6,000 to RM 10,000 (3 - 5 CCs)

4. Fotona 4D Non-Surgical Facelift

Enabled by the expanded capabilities of the Nd:YAG and Er:YAG wavelengths, the Dynamis Pro provides up to four dimensions of treatment. Fotona’s complementary Er:YAG and Nd:YAG wavelengths are synergistically applied in 4 different modes: SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficial™ to work on deeper, medial and superficial connective structures of the skin, while simutaneously targeting different skin imperfections. Multiple treatment modalities range from the 2-dimensional TwinLight® procedure to the 4-dimensional Fotona4D® procedure. Fotona’s 4D laser treatment enables full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent, low-downtime tightening and volumization (wrinkle reduction) without injectables. Combining these 4 unique modes and two complementary wavelengths results in a respectable “SmoothLiftin” treatment.
