A Liquid Face Lift is a non-surgical procedure that can provide a mild lifting and
contouring of facial features. It is used by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and
other medical practitioners as a substitute for, or in addition to, plastic surgery.
A liquid face lift technique will usually not provide the dramatic results of cosmetic
surgery, but will provide a more subtle result.
After a liquid face lift procedure,
friends and colleagues will notice that you look refreshed, but will not usually
think that you have had a cosmetic medical procedure.
A Liquid Face Lift can be undertaken for the entire face or for one area, such cheek
enhancement, mouth wrinkles, or circles under the eye. This non-surgical procedure
can restore natural, curved dimensions that the face may lose over time. It also
provides a more natural, rested look. Dermal Fillers, also called injectables, are
often used in conjunction with cosmetic surgery to help restore the third dimension
of the face that is not typically restored with cosmetic surgery.
Some individuals utilize a non-surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure to rejuvenate
the entire face. Others undergo the procedure to lift or contour specific facial
features, such as nasolabial folds, sunken eyes, and cheek depressions. Liquid Face
Lift products and procedures may be used to accomplish a number of objectives when
it comes to facial contouring and lifting.
For example, bags can be masked under the eyes by using Liquid Facelift techniques;
eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural
shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas; mouth corners can be
lifted; sunken eyes can be rejuvenated; bumps on the nose can be effectively masked;
as well as several other facial feature benefits.
A non-surgical Liquid Face Lift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, usually
in combination with BOTOX® and Dysport® The injectables used are
among a group of 2nd generation dermal fillers that provide more enduring results
than earlier products. The new group of 2nd generation, advanced dermal fillers
includes JUVEDERM® Ultra, JUVEDERM Ultra Plus, Radiesse®, Restylane®,
Perlane® and Sculptra® Aesthetic.
Each of these facial rejuvenation
products has unique attributes that work in their own special way to contour specific
areas of the face. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face or
help the body regenerate its own collagen. Precisely placed, the dermal fillers
can be used to lift, shape, enhance or contour any number of facial features.
It is common for patients who have had Liquid Face Lift procedures to say that they
receive compliments on their appearance without others knowing that they have had
a cosmetic medical procedure. In some instances, the results can be so uplifting
that they change an individual’s life. Many people who are re-entering the job market
are seeking these rejuvenation procedures. As with any cosmetic medical procedure,
results vary from patient to patient.
