The Liquid Facelift? How to Look Younger Without Surgery
Sagging facial features, fine lines and wrinkles, and a dull complexion can add years to your appearance, but facial rejuvenation and contouring procedures may help turn back the clock. Cosmetic surgeons offer several antiaging solutions that can help you maintain your youthful looks, but many people prefer to avoid surgery, opting for alternative wrinkle treatments such as BOTOX and other dermal fillers to enhance their appearance.
The Liquid Face Lift is one facial contouring procedure that can provide visible results without a single incision; the treatment is a combination of dermal fillers and collagen builders that contour and sculpt the face in their own way, and offer several benefits for aging skin. The exact placement and timeliness of each treatment may even help produce results similar to a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedure.
How the Liquid Face Lift Works
The Liquid Face Lift involves a series of carefully administered dermal fillers around the face. From BOTOX to tighten up grooves on the forehead to Juvederm to fill out hollowed cheeks, the dermal fillers used in this treatment are ‘second generation fillers’ according to the Liquid Facelift Association. The customized treatment program may include fillers such as:
- Ultra Juvederm
- Juvederm Ultra Plus
The goal of each treatment is to improve skin elasticity, create a more supple and youthful appearance, and increase the amount of collage in the face for a mores sculpted look. The treatment begins with a complete evaluation of the facial contours and a thorough skin analysis. At this stage, the physician may take measurements of the face and determine which areas need the most treatment in order to create a balanced look. A treatment plan may be as simple as a series of injectables over a few months, or more aggressive with a weekly filler treatment.
The cost of a Liquid Face Lift will vary depending on the number of treatment areas, the physician’s average rates, and the location of the office. Setting up a consultation with your facial cosmetic surgeon can help you map out the right treatment plan and costs involved. When you start seeing results and the body naturally begins to build collagen after treatment, you may need to book a series of touch-up treatments to maintain results.
Key Benefits of the Liquid Face Lift
The Liquid Face Lift may be a valuable alternative to surgery, especially for skin that has only begun showing a few signs of aging. The Liquid Face Lift can help to:
- Plump up wrinkles around the lines and mouth
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and forehead
- Tighten up loose skin, especially around the jaw and cheek areas
- Improve the texture and tone of the skin for a more youthful look
- Revive dull-looking skin
- Increase natural collagen production, in addition to adding collagen to weaker parts of the face
- Providing a temporary ‘lift’ to the face as the skin becomes plumper and firmer
- Make the face look more rested and energetic
Results of the Liquid Face Lift will vary by individual and the type of dermal fillers used. Still, most people showing the common signs of aging can benefit from just one round of treatments on key areas of the face.
