What is a liquid facelift?

Patients who struggle with issues such as sagging skin, volume loss in the mid-face, hollowness in the cheeks, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines, may feel that a traditional surgical facelift is inevitable for them. 

Thankfully, this is quite far from the truth. Modern technology has given humanity various gifts in the worlds of medicine and cosmetology. One of those gifts is the liquid facelift. This procedure has exploded in popularity due to the fact that it is mostly painless, it comes with no downtime, no incisions are required, there is no scarring, and no anesthesia is needed. It is considered to be a fantastic procedure for sculpting the jowls, mid-face, nasolabial folds, and temples, leaving patients looking like a more youthful, vibrant version of themselves from years past. 

A liquid facelift procedure typically employs several different dermal fillers at once, such as Restylane and Juvederm. When combined together, these products can achieve remarkable results, smoothing out fine lines and eliciting results that are similar to a surgical facelift. Results from this procedure show up almost immediately, meaning that patients will have a noticeably more youthful aesthetic the same day as their procedure.

Some of the issues that a liquid facelift can address include:

  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration
  • Photoaging (Sun damage)
  • Sunspots
  • Eyelid ptosis (hooded eyelids)
  • Jowls
  • Down-turned mouth corners
  • Signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and folds
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Melomental folds (marionette lines)
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Submental fat (double chin)
  • Loss of volume in the lips

What are the benefits of a liquid facelift?

  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, giving the patient an improved complexion
  • Makes patients look as much as 10 years younger
  • Stimulates the production of natural proteins, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin
  • Can replenish areas that have seen volume loss
  • Gives patients a new sense of self-confidence
  • Helps patients branch out socially
  • Tightens and firms neck skin, such as the jowls
  • Makes patients look friendlier and more approachable 
  • Reduces acne scars
  • No discomfort or downtime
  • The procedure doesn’t involve any incisions, scarring, or anesthesia
  • Patients can get back to their daily routine right away
  • Long-lasting results
  • Results look natural
  • A cost-effective option

Who makes the best candidate for a non-surgical facelift?

Patients in Arizona who want to address signs of aging in the face but are apprehensive about undergoing an invasive surgical treatment can benefit from a liquid facelift. Overall, it is best suited for patients that are struggling with mild signs of aging and do not have extensive skin sagging.

Other criteria for a liquid facelift include:

  • Having realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
  • Being a non-smoker (or willing to stop prior to the procedure)
  • Having no history of cold sores
  • Having no history of blood clotting issues

What is the procedure like?

Before undergoing the procedure, the patient’s current condition, medical history, and goals are all assessed. With this information, a comprehensive treatment plan can be curated that will help the patient reach their goals. At this time, patients will also be informed of the estimated cost of the procedure, giving patients full clarity on their financial commitments.

Once the plan has been finalized, injection locations are marked on the face to address all of the patient’s concerns and achieve the best results possible. These injection sites are then cleaned and a numbing agent is applied to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure. The injections are administered with thin needles. These areas are then massaged to ensure a thorough and even dispersion of the treatments.
