Liquid Facelift: The Non-Invasive Facelift Procedure
If you’re someone who wants to dip your toe into the fountain of youth without slipping under the knife, then the Liquid Facial is right up your alley!
This non-surgical facelift implements the use of fillers, creating a buildable custom treatment that you can tailor to meet every need as your skin matures.
Using a blend of fillers, such as Restylane and Dysport, injectables are inserted in desired area to plump, smooth and lift. The results are instant with minimal recovery time.
The results can last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on your skin’s condition and how quickly your body metabolizes the liquid gels.
Typically, botox or Dysport is used on the forehead area, around eyes, under eyes, around lips and chin, and on the neck. Restylane is injected into the smile lines, cheeks, under eyes and around the jowls.
In addition to being relatively painless with minimal recovery time, it also is cost efficient compared to other more invasive facial procedures. Additionally, unlike a full facelift, the results are reversible/adjustable, giving you the ultimate control over your appearance.
The ideal candidates age can range anywhere from 30 to 50 years old, depending on the degree of aging in the skin. And, like previously stated, the procedure is customizable to meet all skin maturity levels.
To gain optimal results, you can pair the liquid surgery with PRP [link] and laser treatments [link].
