With today’s advancements in facial plastic surgery, you no longer have to go under the knife to get a facelift. More and more people are choosing liquid facelifts to restore a youthful appearance in the most minimally invasive and convenient way.
- How Does it Work?
- A liquid facelift uses a combination of injectable fillers and/or muscle immobilizing products such as Botox to reduce or eliminate creases and wrinkles as well as lift and fill out sagging skin in the face. Your dermatologist may choose from a variety of facial fillers, depending on your specific needs and goals. Beverly Hills Center uses safe and effective fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane that contain natural hyaluronic acid as well as Radiesse, Sculptra and more.
- The injectable combination used in a liquid facelift can effectively relax and reduce the activity of the muscles and thus improve moderate to severe wrinkles. Injectable fillers can raise your eyebrows, mouth corners and also reduce the appearance of vertical bands in the neck. Each product carries a unique set of treatment factors so a thorough consultation with your dermatologist is highly recommended to make sure the right filler choices are made.
- What Should I Expect?
- Convenience is a very attractive feature of liquid facelifts. Not only is the procedure itself quick (only 15 to 30 minutes), but patients can expect to return to normal daily activities almost immediately. You will likely have several injection sites and some swelling and bruising after the procedure as well as well. Ask your doctor to specific medications or supplements to avoid before the procedure in order to minimize bruising. It is important to note that liquid facelifts are not permanent, yet most results last up to a year or more.
- Are You A Candidate?
- Liquid or injectable facelifts gently reduce wrinkles, creases, line or folds to restore natural-looking fullness. They are ideal for middle-aged adults who want o diminish jowls, lift the corners of the mouth, hide bumps on the nose, improve vertical lip lines and provide for an overall more rested and rejuvenated look. Injectable products can also correct asymmetries and reduce those bands in the neck that become prominent with age. Regardless of the specific problem areas you want to improve on your face, it is highly important that you choose a board certified plastic surgeon that is experienced in facial reconstructive procedures to perform this procedure. A liquid facelift can quickly go wrong if your provider does not have the precision, artistry and knowledge it takes to create a natural, subtle look using injectable products.
