A surgical facelift is the most effective way to restore youthful firmness to the skin. However, not everyone has the ability to commit to a surgical procedure right away. Today, liquid facelifts are helping many patients bridge the gap, smoothing away early signs of aging and warding off the need for a more invasive surgical procedure until much later. See how you can use a liquid facelift to turn back the clock without anesthesia and downtime.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift uses a combination of injectable treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore youthful volume to certain areas of the face. Injectables might include Botox to relax specific facial muscles that lead to the formation of lines, such as on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Dermal fillers can also be used to restore facial volume and smooth away wrinkles on the lower face.
A liquid facelift is highly customizable to the unique needs of each patient. The type of injectables used and their specific placement can be pinpointed to the exact signs of aging you want to eliminate. One of our specialists will talk to you before your procedure about your concerns and expected outcome so we can provide you with the results you want.
About the Procedure
A liquid facelift can be performed right in our office and requires no anesthesia. Some patients may request a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort during the procedure. Injections are strategically placed, using fine needles inserted just under the skin’s surface. The entire procedure usually takes less than one hour to complete and there is no downtime afterward.
Is it Right for You?
While a liquid facelift offers numerous benefits, it is not the right procedure for everyone. The best candidates for this procedure are generally younger patients with early to moderate signs of aging. A liquid facelift will not dramatically improve significant skin sagging and may not work to eliminate deeper facial creases entirely. When these concerns begin to arise, surgery may be the best option to achieve desired results.
