What is a Liquid Face Lift?

Cosmetic surgical procedures tend to have a certain connotation to the word. When thinking about having a cosmetic surgical procedure many patients tend to think about the risks, pain, recovery time, costs of surgery, or even how long to take off of work. Because of this, many people stray away from the requirements of a cosmetic surgery and instead choose non-surgical options that do not require as much as cosmetic surgeries do.

Non-surgical procedures like injectables were created, to provide immediate results for minor improvements with minimal risks, little to no downtime and, better yet, at a fraction of the cost. Introducing the Liquid Facelift. A liquid facelift involves a combination of dermal fillers and/or injectables injected into specific and targeted areas of the face to achieve similar results that of a cosmetic surgical facelift.

The major differences between a liquid facelift and a surgical facelift are:

  1. The results are not permanent, like any filler or freezer the results are temporary as the filler and freezer substances are absorbed by your body over time.

  2. In the short term, the costs are much less than a surgical facelift, however, due to the transient nature of injectables the costs can add up over time.

  3. A liquid facelift does not remove sagging skin in your neck area.

  4. The liquid facelift is great if you don’t have the down-time for the recovery of a surgical facelift. Liquid facelifts have no downtime.

  5. If  you are concerned about the pain, recovery, risks and cost of a surgical facelift, a Liquid Facelift is great alternative.

Another common question among patients is what treatments are used during a liquid facelift? A treatments used in a liquid facelift will determined by your skin care provider as each treatment depends on the individual. Most Liquid Lifts will include dermal fillers such as  Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse and Restylane used in conjunction with injections of botulinum toxin, like Botox and Dysport.

Botulinum toxins work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles reducing muscle activity and thus smoothing out the area. Dermal fillers restore lost facial volume by filling in crevices, smoothing wrinkles and restoring facial contours.

Depending on the individual and the injectables used, the results can last up to 1-2 years as some injectables have a longer life than others. Although we can’t stop aging, we can certainly delay the effects with a liquid facelift. Consult your local physician, nurse or aesthetician to find out if a liquid facelift is the right solution for you.
