If you have winkles and sagging skin, you may be thinking of getting a facelift – but the thought of having a surgical procedure can be a bit overwhelming. And you may have been using beauty creams and serums for years, but they just don’t seem to be doing much good. Perhaps a liquid facelift is just what you need!
What Happens During a Liquid Facelift?
During a liquid facelift, dermal fillers and neuromodulators are strategically injected into skin to reduce wrinkles, add volume where it is wanted, and provide a natural and attractive looking facial contour – overall, a liquid facelift can make you look younger and can make your skin look tighter and more toned.
A combination of fillers and neuromodulators can be used so that you get the results you want. For instance, BOTOX® Cosmetic might be used to relax wrinkles while a filler is used to add volume to the cheeks.
Why Consider a Liquid Facelift?
There are many benefits to liquid facelifts, besides the fact that the patient avoids the hassle, expense, and downtime that comes with a surgical procedure.
Liquid facelifts are noninvasive, and they can be done quickly – often in less than an hour. Because there are no incisions and no stitches, there is a lot less downtime needed for recovery, although you may see some bruising and swelling for a few days after the procedure. There is also a lot less pain – a topical numbing cream is used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure, and most patients report no pain during recovery. There is very low risk and you’ll start to see results almost instantly.
Fillers are FDA approved, and they have been safely used for years. They are also long-lasting; the effects of a neuromodulator such as BOTOX Cosmetic can last up to 6 months, and the effects of fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, can last up to 2 years.
