Most people are familiar with the traditional surgical facelift, but there is also a relatively new procedure known as a liquid facelift, which produces similar results. But just what is a liquid facelift? (read more) It is a technique that uses injectable fillers such as botox and dermal fillers, to rejuvenate and sculpt the face.
The liquid facelift creates a youthful look by combining short-term and long-term solutions to lift and contour the face, in order to reducethe visible signs of aging. It addresses issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, and creases, while restoring facial contours.
Liquid facelift – How it works
A typical liquid facelift will involve the use of botox along with soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane. The injectables are all precisely placed in order to produce results that are subtle, and look natural.
Botox is an anti-wrinkle injectable that works to soften fine lines and wrinkles, and the dermal fillers act as volumizers to enhance the cheeks and other areas of the face. They can also be used to fill in depressions.
At the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Center, they offer customized liquid facelift treatment that will enhance your features and improve your appearance. The procedure firms the skin and corrects drooping of the skin around the forehead, neck, and eyes.
After a liquid facelift most patients notice immediate improvements in the areas treated. The liquid facelift is a more affordable option to the surgical counterpart, but it lasts for a shorter period. Bi-annual maintenance will therefore be required if you want to maintain your refreshed, youngerlook.
The procedure is considered low risk. Some patients may experience tenderness and bruising, but these are generally treated with over-the-counter-medication. There have been no serious complications attributed to the liquid facelift.
