A liquid facelift is a completely non-surgical facelift procedure that provides results similar to a surgical facelift without the need for surgery. It accomplishes this through a combination of injectable cosmetic fillers and wrinkle relaxers. Different fillers are chosen for different facial applications, and they rejuvenate the face by adding volume, softening wrinkles, and rendering a smoother, clearer complexion.
How the Procedure is Performed
Injectable fillers are made of several different materials and are injected with a tiny hollow syringe at different depths of the face. Injections are often layered to provide the best results and longer lasting improvements.
Treatment may include any of the following products: Botox, Dysport Wrinkle Treatment, Restylane/Perlane, Radiesse, Juviderm XC, Sculptra Aesthetic, and/or autologous fat injections. These products work by rebuilding collagen in the skin, by immobilizing small muscles in the face that form wrinkles, or by building volume where it has been lost. In the case of fat injections, fat is suctioned from one part of the body via liposuction, then purified and injected into the face.
