Would you like to reduce wrinkles and fine lines? Surgery isn’t your only option, because you can refresh and rejuvenate your appearance with a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift can help you fight wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. But what happens during a liquid facelift.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure in which botox and dermal fillers are used to rejuvenate the face. These injectables are placed in specific areas of the face to soften fine lines and wrinkles, restore facial volume, and refine the jawline. The combination of fillers used will depend on the needs of the patient.
What happens during a liquid facelift?
During a liquid facelift, a series of injections are made in the targeted areas to plump the skin and improve facial contours. A liquid facelift may also include lip augmentation (click here to learn more).
Botox reduces wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Botox blocks the signals that the nerves send out to the muscles telling them to contract. If the muscles are unable to contract, the wrinkles in the overlying skin become softer over time.
Dermal fillers fill in lines around the nose and mouth and replenish volume in the midface and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers such as Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Volbella are commonly used to perform a liquid facelift. The HA molecules in these fillers attract and retain water, and this adds volume beneath the skin, to temporarily fill in wrinkles and hollow areas.
How long does a liquid facelift last?
The duration of a liquid facelift depends on the type of cosmetic injectables used for the procedure. Botox lasts an average of 3 months, and dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months.
