The Rise of the Robot Facelift: Electrifying Treatment Claims to Reduce Sagging Jowls and Beat Wrinkles Using Radiofrequency Waves
- Nicknamed the robot facelift due to its energy-assisted nature
- £300 a session and uses controlled deep heating to the tissue
- Radiofrequency, ultrasound and advanced skin cooling stimulate collagen production
The demand for youth-boosting skin rejuvenation treatments has never been higher, and now one London clinic is offering a high-tech solution to facial ageing.
Nicknamed the ‘robot facelift’ due to its energy-assisted nature, the new treatment uses radiofrequency waves to both tighten the skin and promote new collagen growth.
The robot facelift, which costs an eye-watering £300 a session, promises to help to reduce sagging jowls and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes leading to a more youthful-looking face.

The advanced technology uses controlled deep heating to the tissue through simultaneous application of radiofrequency, ultrasound and advanced skin cooling.

Already making waves in the celebrity world - with fans including Anthea Turner - the robot facelift is more widely known as Exilis Elite, and involves radio waves being painlessly delivered to the skin with precise heating and cooling, plus real-time monitoring of skin temperature.
This constant detection and control of energy flow apparently allows the doctor to reach therapeutic temperatures in the shortest amount of time, says Dr Antia Sturnham from Nurriss Wellness Clinic, London.
'During the robot facelift, the state-of-the-art dual pulse energy enlivens collagen fibres and this disruption subsequently causes the natural healing process to actively produce new fibres and refill the skin structure with new collagen,' she said.
Dr Sturnham, who regularly appears on popular health shows including Embarrassing Bodies, believes the popularity of non-surgical facelifts is only going to increase, as the demand for quick results without surgery continues to rise.
'Energy-assisted anti-ageing is the future of cosmetic treatment, I’m certain,' she said.
'Patients are turning their back on invasive, painful procedures now there are forward-thinking facial rejuvenation treatments on offer at half the price of a facelift.'
