Which Dermal Fillers Are Used in a Liquid Facelift?
Your Longwood Plastic Surgery expert injector will choose dermal fillers and other treatments to use during your liquid facelift. The procedure may include:
Juvederm® is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found in your skin, attracting and holding onto hydration. Members of the Juvederm® family can address concerns including thin lips, volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of facial definition.
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid. It triggers collagen production, adding firmness and volume to the skin. Sculptra® is often used to treat deep lines and wrinkles, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds, but it has many other uses.
Botox® is a neuromodulator that treats expression lines and wrinkles. It can treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and vertical lines between the brows. It provides a smoother, more relaxed appearance in targeted areas.
How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?
How long your liquid facelift lasts depends on several factors. Different components of the procedure have different lifespans. Botox® typically lasts three to four months, while Juvederm® dermal fillers last one to two years. Sculptra® can last two years or more. You can schedule visits to have your liquid facelift touched up as needed.
