What is A Liquid Facelift?
The term liquid facelift is used to describe a technique of using a combination of antiaging injectables to contour and lift the face without having to undergo surgery. These injectables include dermal fillers and muscle relaxers to give the results of a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. By using this noninvasive method, patients are able to get similar results of a traditional facelift, with less down time, risks, and complications.
What is Used During a Liquid Facelift?
There are various injectables that can be used in multiple areas of the face during a liquid facelift to provide you with the results that you desire. Some of the dermal fillers we use in our office include Radiesse, Sculptra, Restylane, and Juvederm. We also utilize the antiaging effects of muscle relaxers such as Botox and Dysport. By combining these injectables, facial features are lifted and contoured to give a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
What to Expect During Your Liquid Facelift?
The first step to any cosmetic procedure is to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, your doctor can assess your facial structure, skin type, problem areas, and discuss your desired results. This is also when you can bring up any questions and concerns you may have. A customized treatment plan will be created for you to give you the final outcome that you wish. This plan will consist of a combination of high quality injectables to give you beautifully natural results.
After your consultation, you will schedule a date for your liquid facelifts. You should block about an hour of your schedule out for these injections. There is usually no downtime after, so no need to take time off of work or other activities. Some patients come in for liquid facelifts on their lunch breaks.
Once your treatment begins, your skin will be prepped by disinfecting the skin. Then a topical or local anesthetic may be applied to ensure your comfort. After the anesthetic has had time to work, the injections will begin. The entire process is short and relatively painless. Touch up injections are sometimes needed three weeks after the initial injections.
Benefits of A Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift offers many benefits when compared to a traditional facelift and is often preferred by patients who are not showing severe signs of aging. One of the most appealing benefits that a liquid facelift offers is that it does not require patients to “go under the knife”. Many patients will avoid surgery at all costs and that is why they are choosing this minimally invasive option. It requires little to no recovery time and does not present the same risks that come with surgery.
Patients also love that liquid facelifts are more cost effective than a traditional facelift. The injections that are performed during a treatment are more affordable than paying for a full surgery. For surgery, you are paying for various things, such as the operating room, anesthesia, a longer amount of your doctor’s time, their surgical team, and much more. During a liquid facelift, you are paying for the injectables, your doctor’s time, and a possible topical anesthetic for your own comfort.
The results of a liquid facelift are often more natural when compared to a traditional facelift. The skin is being plumped with fillers instead of stretched back and cut, as it is with a full facelift. When the skin is stretched and pulled back, there is a risk of an artificial and fake appearance if the procedure is not done correctly.
Injectables give your doctor or specialist more control to target specific areas during a liquid facelift. There is also a level of customization for how much of each product is distributed to each area. This precision results in a natural and youthful appearance.
Are You a Good Candidate for A Liquid Facelift?
Healthy individuals that are looking to reduce signs of aging would make the best candidates for a liquid facelift. Talk to your doctor about any medical conditions or health concerns that you may have. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations. Make sure to discuss with your doctor exactly what a liquid facelift can and cannot do.
If you are self-conscious about fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss that has begun to age your face, you may greatly benefit from a liquid facelift. If you have noticed that you have a lot of excess fat and sagging skin in your face, you may want to consider a traditional facelift.
