Aging is inevitable. As we get older, we tend to lose volume in our face. This causes fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging facial skin to develop. Many think of surgical facelift surgery for correcting these effects of facial aging. However, with so many options, having to go under the knife is not the only choice for addressing these common issues. Instead of undergoing a surgical facelift, patients may find they would benefit more from a non-surgical procedure such as the liquid facelift.
The best candidates for the liquid facelift are those who want to rejuvenate and “refresh” their face. The ideal candidate is a patient who has lost “volume” to her/his face especially in the cheek and mouth areas. Facial fillers, Botox and/or skin peels are used in combination for improvement in wrinkles, skin tone and appearance.
What Is the Liquid Facelift?
The liquid facelift involves the use of a facial fillers, which has hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural product of the body that is a key component in building collagen. The filler material is injected into the targeted areas to stimulate new collagen and tissue growth for a long-term improvement in the volume and shape of the face. Botox and/or skin peels are then used in addition to help reduce fine lines and improve skin tone.
The liquid facelift makes a difference in the overall facial appearance by essentially “plumping” up the skin and “fleshing” out the face. You won’t look like a different person, just a refreshed you! It can be injected into the temples, cheeks, lower eyelids, and jawline to create more youthful facial contours. As the face gains more fullness, signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging jowls will diminish. The liquid facelift can take five to seven years off of your facial appearance. Unlike the surgical facelift, patients can go back to work immediately following this procedure.
Liquid Facelift vs. Surgical Facelift
The liquid facelift is for those who want a fast and safe procedure that helps them achieve immediate results, unlike facelift surgery that will require some “recovery” time. Both can help a patient look younger and more beautiful, but surgery does not address the volume deficits in the aging face. Facial surgery usually requires general anesthesia whereas liquid lifts typically use topical anesthesia. Those who want an “overnight” facelift to address facial aging in a quicker fashion may benefit more from a liquid facelift.
