As you’ve gotten older, have you noticed fat accumulating on your body, but declining in your face? Are you bothered by the resulting wrinkles, skin laxity, hollowness, and folds? If you answered yes, it may be time to consider a liquid facelift. This non-surgical procedure can restore volume and counteract signs of aging, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
Continue reading for everything you need to know about a liquid facelift.
What is it exactly?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses cosmetic injectables, including dermal fillers and Botox, to rejuvenate the face. In many cases, the treatment aims to correct wrinkles, hollows, sagging, and folds that are caused by age-related volume loss.
While there are a number of dermal fillers that can be administered in conjunction with this procedure, your provider will carefully assess your needs and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Many of the injectables involved in this procedure are composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm, are especially popular because they easily attract and hold moisture for instant plumping and hydrating effects.
Liquid Facelift and Surgical Facelift – What’s the Difference?
While a liquid facelift and a surgical facelift both seek rejuvenation, a liquid facelift avoids incisions, anesthesia, and risks associated with surgery. Additionally, this non-invasive treatment doesn’t necessitate any recovery and provides immediate results.
With that being said, a surgical facelift lasts longer than a liquid facelift.
How is a the Procedure Performed?
A liquid facelift is performed in an office-setting, rather than a surgical suite. The pre-selected filler products are strategically injected with an ultra-fine needle in order to sculpt, lift, and enhance. In most cases, the treatment can be completed over your lunch break, and you are free to return to work immediately after.
How Long Do Results Last?
Depending on the type, amount, and location of fillers, patients can enjoy results for 8-24 months.
