Liquid Facelift 101
Some patients are a bit hesitant to get a full-on facelift for its perceived potential complications and extended recovery period. Understandable. But that’s where our uniquely tailored liquid facelifts come in. Liquid, or nonsurgical facelifts, are injectables that fill facial wrinkles and add volume in all the right places, making you look more youthful, and all without ever going under a knife.
You can reverse the signs of aging and reclaim your youth without incisions, scars or downtime—or mummification during recovery. All you need are a few strategically-delivered injections and you can go about your daily life with significantly younger skin.
Considering a liquid facelift? You might have several questions about the procedure — How does it work? What are my options? How long do the results last? That’s why we’ll answer all of the most frequently asked questions about liquid facelifts, helping you make an informed decision about your youth restoration choices.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that involves smartly placed dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are products made of naturally-occurring components, like hyaluronic acid, that add volume to your skin, filling up wrinkles and fine lines.
The primary goal of a liquid facelift is to smoothen your skin by removing these wrinkles and fine lines. However, a liquid facelift can also plump up your lips, restore lost facial volume in your cheeks, reduce the hollows under your eyes, tighten your skin and make your skin appear soft and supple.
What are my liquid facelift options?
You can choose between several different fillers including Botox, Dysport, Juvéderm, Juvéderm Volbella, Juvéderm Vollure, Juvéderm Voluma, Juvéderm Ultra XC, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk, Kybella and Sculptra.
Some dermal fillers work by supplementing your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid. Others encourage your body to boost its collagen production, a component that adds structure, strength and vitality to your skin. And others relax your facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Different injectables work in different ways, and our aesthetic experts know their differences inside and out. All you have to do is show up.
How long does a liquid facelift last?
The results of a liquid facelift depend on the type of injectable used and your body’s ability to metabolize the product. Generally speaking, a liquid facelift can last as long as 6 to 12 months, though you might need touch-ups at 3 to 6-month intervals to maintain optimal results.
Is a liquid facelift painful?
Not really. Most doctors apply numbing cream before the injections, so you don’t really feel a thing. You may experience a little discomfort and redness after the procedure, but those side effects last only a few hours and it’s a small price to pay for youth… wouldn’t you agree?
When will my results kick in?
You’ll see most of your results immediately, but they’ll continue improving for several days to come, and you should notice the final results within about 2 weeks.
Do I need to take time off work?
Not necessarily. Liquid facelifts are nonsurgical outpatient procedures requiring little to no downtime. You can get the injections during your lunch break and head back to work almost immediately after. There’s no need to take time off work or interrupt your daily schedule.
Why should I get a liquid facelift instead of a traditional facelift?
- Liquid facelifts make you look a whole lot younger without having to look like a wrapped mummy for a few days or weeks of recovery
- You don’t have to take any time off from work
- There are hardly any risks involved
- The results are so natural that most people won’t even realize that you’ve had work done.
Need we say more?
Liquid facelifts are awesome, but you really need an aesthetician and doctor who know what they’re doing.
