What is a Liquid Face Lift?
Are you starting to develop jowls, deep wrinkles and folds? Are you interested in dramatically reducing the signs of aging? As we age, the face begins to lose volume, collagen, and elastin, this causes sagging facial features. The “liquid face lift” uses fillers and sometimes botox to restore facial volume, decrease folds and wrinkles, and give the face total rejuvenation. Some typical affects of aging are saggy jowls, wrinkles, vertical lip lines, lines along the sides of you nose extending to the corners of your lips (nasolabial folds), mid-face volume loss, vertical lip lines, lines from the corners of your mouth extending downward toward your chin (marionette lines).
A liquid facelift is an incredibly effective procedure where a practitioner will inject advanced dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane products into areas of volume loss to lift and contour facial features. These dermal fillers have complex cross-linked capabilities to gently lift facial features, reduce the appearance of folds and creases, and add volume for a smooth appearance to restore the natural contour of the face. Fillers add volume to flattened cheeks and flattened temple areas, corners of the mouth can be lifted, and the shape of your nose can be contoured. In some candidates fillers are used to fill or mask under eye hollowness reducing the appearance of dark circles allowing you to look more rested and youthful. Fillers may be used in combination with Botox to relax facial lines, provide added lift, and enhance the effects of fillers. The procedure is quick lasting 30 minutes to 1 hour, generally painless and with little to no downtime.
Cost of a Liquid Face Lift?
A liquid facelift is priced by the number of syringes used and the product used to achieve the best results. The amount of product used will vary from patient to patient, for a full face most individuals will typically spend an average of $2,000 more or less.
How long will it last?
A liquid facelift will typically last 1-2 years depending on the products used and the areas injected. Voluma is known to last the longest, approximately 2 years, while Juvederm and Restylane will last approximately 1 year. Results may last longer when combined with the use of Botox.
All products discussed are FDA-approved for treatment of various areas of the face.
