Refreshing the face and giving it a more youthful appearance doesn’t always have to mean surgery. For patients with mild to moderate signs of aging, a liquid facelift might just do the trick. This injectable treatment involves a combination of Botox and dermal fillers, strategically placed, to erase fine lines and wrinkles and restore youthful volume to the facial profile. Check out these facts about a liquid facelift to find out if this procedure might be the right treatment for you.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift is a purely injectable procedure that combines well known treatments like Botox, Juvederm and Radiesse to address multiple skin concerns in a single treatment. In addition to rolling back the clock by erasing fine lines and deeper creases, these treatments can add volume to areas like the cheeks and lips, provide definition to the jawline and refresh tired eyes.

Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

There are a number of reasons to consider a liquid facelift:

  • Minimally-invasive procedure requires no incisions or anesthesia
  • The procedure typically takes less than one hour to complete
  • Multiple areas can be addressed in a single treatment session
  • Patients can return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over
  • Procedure can be customized to the specific needs of each patient

How Long will Results Last?

Because a liquid facelift uses temporary formulations, injections will need to be repeated periodically to maintain positive results. Botox injections usually last 3-4 months before another treatment is required. Dermal fillers tend to last longer, 6-12 months, depending on the specific treatment area, the formula used and the patient. You can schedule touch-up treatments as needed, without waiting to come in for a whole new liquid facelift once all the effects wear off.

Is it Right for You?

A liquid facelift can be a good option for individuals looking to ward off the early signs of aging. While it will not replace a surgical facelift, these treatments can prolong the time before surgery becomes necessary. Keep in mind treatments will need to be repeated to maintain positive results, so patients need to be committed to keeping a regular treatment schedule if they want results to continue.
