You can achieve a younger, fresher look without surgery. While there is no substitute for a full facelift for those with significant facial sagging, many women and men between 30-50 years can benefit from minimally invasive injectable treatments to help postpone the need for a surgical facelift. When strategically injected, it can help to restore the volume in saggy facial tissue, create fuller cheekbones for better facial definition, or lift your eyebrows or restore lost volume to your temples. This treatment can subtly but effectively help you ward off the effects of time. Fast becoming one of the most popular non-surgical, anti-aging treatments, the liquid facelift is the perfect option for men and women who want to look younger quickly without the downtime of surgery.
The liquid facelift is a completely non-surgical, multi-step treatment that involves volumizing and refining areas of the face through the use of BOTOX® and dermal fillers, such as Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Sculptra®. A combination of these dermal products will be selected for specific facial applications and are often layered to provide optimal results and long-lasting improvement. The final result is a naturally youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance. The added volume and smoothed wrinkles and lines are evident immediately after treatment, with enhanced results after four or five days. The liquid facelift is completely customized to your unique needs. The type of dermal fillers used and the careful application of these products are determined during an in-depth consultation with one of our physicians.
One of the advantages of liquid facelift products is that you may return to most of your normal activities shortly after treatment. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise a day or two after treatment as this increases the heart rate and quickens blood flow, prolonging any swelling. Avoid excessive sun exposure. Makeup may usually be worn immediately after treatment. It is common to experience some minor bruising or swelling after a liquid face lift treatment. If this occurs, avoid alcohol consumption, discontinue the use of Vitamin E, aspirin, herbal supplements and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen until the swelling subsides. Results can last from six months to a year or even longer in some cases.
Every liquid facelift is customized for the patient. You are a unique individual, and your skin type, degree of wrinkling and sagging, and the quality of your skin must all be evaluated to create your custom liquid facelift. Some patients want a more sculpted look and ask to have the cheeks enhanced, while others merely want to smooth out the look of aging skin and restore a fresher, younger look. We are here to help you restore and rejuvenate your facial appearance, and will advise you about the types of fillers available and what we believe will produce the look you envision for yourself. Our entire team of professionals gets great personal enjoyment out of seeing our patients looking younger – and happier.
