Liquid Facelift—The Answer to Youthful Skin
- Posted on: Jun 28 2023
As you get older, your body will no longer produce as much collagen, making you lose facial volume. This loss of volume can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles, and a more aged look. There are various treatments you can get to reverse the signs of aging, and a non-surgical liquid facelift is one of the most popular out there.
As an alternative to surgery, a liquid facelift uses injectables to restore the lost volume, giving your face a more lifted, full look. A liquid facelift is a great choice for those women and men who do not want to deal with the downtime associated with surgery. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of a liquid facelift!
Liquid Facelifts and Their Benefits
Liquid facelifts involve combining BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® with dermal fillers for a full face rejuvenation. They can contour and restore lost volume, all while improving different areas of your face.
By going in for a liquid facelift, you may enjoy the following benefits:
- A subtle lift of your facial features
- Restoration of your natural facial curves
- Reduction of folds, creases, and wrinkles
- A brighter-looking and energetic expression
- A friendlier-looking smile
After your consultation with one of our medical providers, we can determine the best course of action for you whether that is a more general treatment or a targeted one depending on your skin care needs. Skin tightening treatments may also be added to a liquid facelift to trigger your body’s collagen production.
Dermal Fillers Used in Liquid Facelifts
At Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, we use a combination of BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® and the following dermal fillers during a liquid facelift treatment:
JUVÉDERM® fillers have a base of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that binds to the elastin and collagen in your skin. This will help keep the skin plump and firm, restoring the lost volume and preventing the sagging of your skin. Depending on the type of JUVÉDERM® that is used, it may be added to the lips, cheeks, and sunken areas under your eyes.
RADIESSE® is made using calcium microspheres that are suspended within a gel formula. This will offer an immediate volume increase in the injected area. Thanks to the formula, it will also stimulate the regeneration of your tissue, encouraging new production of collagen and elastin. This will offer an even better lifting effect over time.
Similar to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® Lift is also a hyaluronic acid based injectable. This means that it can be used for volume loss, as well as the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. When added to the cheeks and lip area, it can diminish fine to moderate wrinkles in the area while providing a lifting and plumping effect.
Artefill® is a great dermal filler to be used around the smile lines. This will provide a lifting effect to your mouth, filling the smile lines, resulting in a friendlier-looking smile. Unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Artefill® is more of a microsphere hybrid-gel-like filler, offering long-lasting or sometimes permanent results.
What to Expect From Liquid Facelifts?
Unlike regular facelifts, liquid facelifts take a shorter time to be performed. Including the selection of products, you will likely only be in our office for about one hour and a half. You can either go home immediately after your treatment, and you may return to your daily schedule, as there is minimal downtime involved.
You can expect to see gradual results, depending on the injectable products used. For the most part, you will notice an immediate lifting effect, but your results will improve over time. The result visibility varies because some dermal fillers used in the process can boost your natural collagen production, reducing wrinkles and adding plumpness to your skin continuously over time.
Liquid facelifts last from as little as four months to as long as two years, and this will depend on the products used during the procedure.
