Cosmetic procedures have come a long way over the years with increased popularity in non-surgical treatment options. Dermal fillers and injections are just a few of the available procedures used to improve a person’s appearance. Liquid facelifts are another non-invasive substitute for traditional cosmetic surgery.
A traditional facelift is a major plastic surgery procedure that many patients are not willing to undergo due to its invasive, surgical nature. Alternatively, a liquid facelift can provide those same individuals with immediate results without the risk of invasive surgery.
An Alternative to Surgery
Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Voluma™, Belotero Balance®, Restylane® Silk, and Botox® are all cosmetic injections that are designed to smooth out lines and wrinkles and help contour the face. All are effective methods of obtaining a younger, more refreshed appearance. Many patients searching for non-surgical options in their quest for looking younger have now turned to the “liquid facelift” as one of the newest cosmetic procedures for erasing the signs of aging.
Liquid Facial Contouring
One of the most telltale signs of a person’s true age is sagging facial skin. The skin on our face starts to droop as we grow older due to a decrease in collagen and elastin production in the skin. These two proteins are what give skin its firmness and keep it looking smooth. When there is a decrease in collagen and elastin, the skin loses that firmness, which you may notice when fine lines, wrinkles, and skinfolds begin to form. Many cosmetic surgeons offer treatment sessions which combine FDA-approved dermal fillers and Botox® in an attempt to shape the face but wrinkle reduction is often not achieved with these products. On the other hand, a liquid facelift removes facial wrinkles and folds without having to surgically restructure the face as is done during a traditional facelift procedure.
The non-surgical liquid facelift offers the following benefits:
- Improves your smile by smoothing out lines around the mouth.
- Creates a more youthful appearance and natural glow.
- Restores facial structure, naturally.
- Can be used to target specific facial features for improvement.
- Provides all of the benefits listed above with little to no downtime.
How a Liquid Facelift Works
A liquid facelift reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the face using both Botox® and other advanced, second generation dermal fillers which provide patients with longer lasting results. Dr. Huynh utilizes such dermal fillers as Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Voluma™, Belotero Balance®, and Restylane® Silk to improve the skin’s appearance on your face in those areas lacking volume and firmness. Each of these products listed function differently to serve a specific purpose. When precisely placed, they can shape or lift any facial feature you are looking to improve. Dr. Huynh has specialized in combining dermal fillers to achieve each patient’s unique desired results.
While liquid facelifts are a great option for anyone looking to remove facial lines and wrinkles, it may not be the best option for everyone. Those patients wishing for dramatic results may want to opt, instead, for surgical treatment. Dermal fillers are designed to gently transform the face and, therefore, may not provide the level of results some patients desire. Regular touch-ups may also be needed in order to maintain the results achieved by dermal fillers or injections, depending on how your face maintains its new shape. With the right aftercare, the amount of time between needed touchups may be increased.
A liquid facelift may not be ideal for every patient’s ultimate goals and needs, but it is a revolutionary procedure which can greatly improve one’s facial appearance without the need for invasive surgery. Many patients are often surprised to hear that doctors who have relied exclusively on cosmetic surgery procedures in the past are now utilizing liquid facelifts to help improve surgical results as a part of after-treatment care. There is also the option of receiving a liquid facelift before making the commitment to a cosmetic surgical procedure. This gives patients the chance to discover if they are able to obtain their desired results without having to undergo invasive surgery.
Using Kybella™ as a Complement to a Liquid Facelift
Kybella™ is another injection treatment containing a substance that helps the body to absorb fat. It is designed to improve the look of the chin area by removing excess fat storage. Kybella™ can be performed in conjunction with a liquid facelift to improve one’s appearance and facial profile for ultimate results. Whereas the liquid facelift can be done to improve the look of lines, wrinkles, and gently restructure the face, Kybella™ will enhance the results of the liquid facelift by contouring the chin and jawline. Because fat cells are eradicated at the site of the Kybella™ injection, it is a fast, non-surgical alternative to liposuction in treating fat deposits around the chin to help accentuate the results of the liquid facelift.
