The term “liquid facelift” has taken the world by storm in recent years, and it’s certainly gained popularity among men and women alike. Essentially, a liquid facelift is a term used to describe a series of dermal filler injections that are designed to restore firmness, smoothness, radiance, and youthfulness to the face – much like a surgical facelift, but with lower cost, risk and downtime.
The liquid facelift has grown in popularity as of late due to its convenience, safety, and affordability when compared to traditional facelifts. At Premier Dermatology, we perform this procedure in our office, and it takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the nature of the procedure and the number of injections required. Our patients can go back to work the very same day if they choose; there’s no general anesthetic or incisions involved, though some bruising, swelling, and redness may occur. Your dermatologist will likely advise you to take specific medications to help with any pain and swelling you experience after the procedure.
A liquid facelift can plump the lips, lift the cheeks, reduce appearance of the jowls, and folds between the nose and lips (nasolabial folds) and the lips and chin (melolabial folds) as well as sharpening the jawline to improve one’s profile. This technique can also be used to tighten wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars, and even help to reduce the appearance of hollowness or dark circles under the eyes. Though liquid facelifts are significantly more affordable than their surgical facelift counterparts, the price can vary a great deal depending on the fillers that are used as well as the number of syringes required to achieve the desired results.
Liquid facelifts are not permanent, but in most cases, the results can last for many months or even years depending upon the product used. Virtually anyone can be a candidate for a liquid facelift, but the best way to find out is to schedule an appointment with Premier Dermatology today. You should not have a sunburn or any kind of facial wound or infection on the day of the procedure, and we recommend avoiding major dental procedures 2 weeks before and after fille.
