A liquid facelift is a great non-surgical option for patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing a full surgical procedure. All of the doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology VENUS are experienced in injectable treatments and actually perform these treatments themselves. As we age, the face begins to lose elasticity and volume, resulting in sagging, wrinkles, fine lines and folds. In the past, visible aging was corrected through surgical means. But today, we can rejuvenate the face by using a combination of non-surgical filler and Botox treatments.
What Is A Liquid Facelift Used For?
When we are young our faces look full and wrinkle-free because we have plenty of collagen and elastin. The visible signs of aging begin to appear as the face loses its collagen and elasticity. A liquid facelift can effectively restore youthful facial features. At our Venus Center dermatologist office, the doctors will use a combination of dermal fillers and Botox or Dysport to rejuvenate the face. This combo treatment can address and improve the following signs of aging:
- Loss of volume
- Expression lines
- Hollow features
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Under eye circles
- Lip borders and vertical lip lines
How does it work?
Each combination rejuvenation treatment our cosmetic dermatologists perform is tailored to the specific needs of the patient. During your consultation, you and the doctor will discuss which issues you want to correct and decide on the best treatment plan. In general, a combination of dermal fillers, like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse or Sculptra, are combined with Botox or Dysport injections to achieve the patient’s desired results. The fillers are used to add volume back to the face and to smooth out unwanted wrinkles and furrows. Expression related creases like crow’s feet or 11-lines are treated with Botox or Dysport, which relaxes the muscles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. This combination flattens wrinkles as well as tightens up loose skin, giving patients a more youthful appearance.
What are the benefits?
Liquid facelifts are a great option for patients who do not have severe volume loss and sagging or patients who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure. The results of a noninvasive combination treatment are usually visible immediately after the treatment (unless Sculptra is used, which takes a couple of months to appear) and require minimal downtime. Our doctors’ expert techniques provide patients with natural-looking results. Many of our patients tell us they receive compliments on their “well-rested” appearance, but friends and family can rarely tell that they have had work done.
