ERA stands for Enhance, Rejuvenate and Anti-ageing and that is exactly what the ERA Lift treatment does! At our clinic in Oxfordshire, we want you to look great and to restore your confidence with our latest ‘needle-free’ skin rejuvenation.
The ERA Lift includes Hydrafacial Platinum to improve skin health and restore radiance, Radiofrequency to improve skin tone and texture, HIFU (high intensity focussed ultrasound) for skin tightening, and laser/IPL treatments for pigmentation and thread veins.
We are proud to serve clients in Thame, Aylesbury and Oxford with our fantastic, bespoke, ERA Lift treatment.
The ERA Lift is our signature facial rejuvenation treatment which uses three clinically proven technologies to address the signs of skin ageing, restoring mid face volume and physically lifting the skin tissues without the need for dermal fillers.
Treatment takes place over 6 months and results develop gradually, so it will not be obvious you have had anything ‘done’.
Our clients often tell us that friends comment that they look ‘really well’ but cannot quite put their finger on why! That is the beauty of an ERA Lift treatment, of course what you tell them is completely up to you!

What areas of the skin can be treated?
From around the age of 25 the first signs of ageing start to happen on the surface of the skin. Starting with fine lines and a loss of moisture, skin’s ageing process progresses over time and can be categorised into three main signs:
Fine lines & wrinkles. These are the first noticeable signs of skin ageing. Typically, small lines and wrinkles appear around your eyes in your 20s and 30s, followed by wrinkles on the forehead. These lines are known as ‘dynamic wrinkles’, which means they are only visible when the skin moves with facial expressions, over time they become permanent wrinkles that are visible when the face is static or at rest.
Loss of volume. By the age of 40, most people experience less definition of facial contours due to sagging skin. Volume depletes in the mid face which can change the face to look sad or tired. Signs of loss of volume include a flattening of the cheeks, the appearance of jowls or wrinkling on the neck, often called a ‘turkey neck’.
The final stage of the skin’s ageing process includes loss of elasticity and deepening of wrinkles because of elastin and collagen levels declining. Skin also becomes drier and can appear ‘crepey’.
Anyone aged 40-65 with loss of mid face volume, mild jowling, and skin laxity is generally a good candidate for the ERA Lift.
Will I need a consultation for the ERA Lift?
You will need a consultation before any treatment can take place. Consultations are without charge and last for around 30 minutes.
During your consultation, one of our experienced practitioners will carry out a full skin analysis to assess your skin health including looking at any areas of pigmentation or thread veins which can also be addressed as part of the ERA Lift treatment.
Following your consultation, you will receive a personalised treatment plan which will detail the number of treatments you will need and the frequency of those treatments. We will also take a photograph of you before your treatment, which will be compared at your 6-month review appointment so you can see the full results of your ERA Lift transformation!
What can I expect during treatment?
Hydrafacial Platinum: We start by improving your skin tone and texture with a course of Hydrafacial Platinum treatments. The Hydrafacial is a medical grade facial which actively improves your skin health and restores radiance. Depending on the results of your initial skin analysis, your Hydrafacial treatments will include a specialist Booster such as Dermabuilder, Britenol or Rozetrol, which improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, addresses pigmentation, or targets rosacea. You will also receive a Perk Eye treatment to hydrate and refresh the eye area, lessening the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and addressing dark circles.
Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency is a clinically proven treatment, which helps to stimulate your body’s natural collagen and elastin which is lost during the ageing process. This treatment also improves skin tone and texture. During your treatment a special gel is applied to the skin and a handpiece is used to heat the skin to 40ºC which is the level at which new collagen and elastin start to be stimulated. Radiofrequency is a relaxing treatment which feels very much like a hot stone massage, with the benefit of helping to physically improve the skin, tightening the jawline, and building volume in the mid face.
HIFU: High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound: HIFU treatment is an effective treatment for skin tightening, which uses ultrasound energy to tighten the muscle layer and the structural skin layers of the face. The energy produced converts to heat within the skin which causes the tightening effect and kick starts the process of new collagen being created. We treat your full face and neck as part of an ERA Lift treatment which helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and gently lifts the brow cheek and jowls. You will receive 2 treatments, spaced 3 months apart.
Laser Treatment: Areas of pigmentation are treated with IPL treatment and thread veins are treated with an Nd:YAG laser which is a quick and painless procedure to remove spider veins.
What conditions are contraindicated for ERA Lift?
Please note that this treatment may not be suitable for you if you have excessive jowling or skin laxity. Your suitability and anticipated results will be discussed as part of your initial consultation.
If you are currently pregnant or breast feeding, you will not be suitable for treatment.
Does the ERA Lift hurt?
All stages of the ERA Lift treatment utilise non-invasive technologies which are not painful. Radiofrequency treatment feels warm on the skin, which if often likened to a hot stone massage. The HIFU treatment feels tingly and is generally well tolerated. Topical numbing creams are available if you find treatment uncomfortable.
When will I see results?
You will notice an immediate improvement in your skin, which goes on to improve over time thanks to natural healing. Fine lines and wrinkles will lessen, and your skin will appear more radiant and lifted. Pore size will be reduced, and any areas of pigmentation or redness will be less noticeable. Thread veins will gradually disappear. You will notice an increased volume in your midface and jowls will be gently lifted.
How long does ERA Lift last?
Results of the ERA Lift develop gradually over 3 – 6 months and last up to 18 months.
