A standard facelift procedure remains the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. Yet certain factors may hinder you from having the procedure including your existing state of health, elasticity of your facial skin, and the costs of surgery. Fortunately, you can choose to go the non-surgical route with a liquid facelift instead!
What’s a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift generally involves combining injectables for facial rejuvenation. When injectables were first introduced, they were primarily used to fill in wrinkles. The introduction of new injectables and the constant experimentation that went along with them gave way to the concept of using fillers to give the face a more lifted look and to restore its youthful contours.
Fillers that contain hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm and Restylane are often used in a liquid facelift. These fillers address issues that primarily affect the middle and lower thirds of the face such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls. Botox may be also injected to address the appearance of wrinkles and creases in the upper third of the face – from furrows between the brows to pesky creases on the outermost corners of the eyes.
When is a liquid facelift recommended?
A liquid facelift is ideal if:
- You can’t commit to the long downtime of facelift surgery
- You have an existing health condition that could possibly increase your risk during surgery
- You want to experience temporary face-enhancement results before deciding on surgery
- Your budget may not work with the cost of facelift surgery
