What’s A Liquid Facelift Procedure Like?
A liquid facelift procedure is done in-office. After your consultation with one of our skilled specialists, we’ll begin preparing you for the injection procedures. This includes cleaning the treatment area and marking injection sites. You may also request an ice application to numb the site, however, most injectables are lidocaine-enhanced to keep you comfortable throughout.
The actual injection process takes just a few short minutes. There is no downtime involved, and you’ll be able to get back to most of your day-to-day activities without restrictions. Aside from minor redness, swelling, or tenderness, side effects are typically minimal and often last just a few hours.
Which Fillers are Used?
There is no right or wrong combination for a liquid facelift. Your individual procedure may entail a combination of dermal fillers and/or neurotoxin injectables for total facial rejuvenation. The most commonly used injections include:
- Botox – For lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face including crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and glabellar wrinkles.
- Juvederm – Best for lines, wrinkles, and facial folds on the mid-to-lower face. Juvederm can also help plump thin lips.
- Juvederm Voluma– This unique injectable is ideal for treating upper to mid-facial volume loss, primarily in the cheek area. This filler can last up to 2 years.
- Sculptra – A long-lasting collagen enhancer that’s able to tackle even the most severe lines, wrinkles, and facial folds.
The great thing about a liquid facelift is the ability to address symptoms head-on while also naturally slowing the aging process. In fact, many younger patients opt for liquid facelift procedures to combat hereditary premature aging such as laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
