Liquid facelift is a treatment that aims to mimic the results a patient receives from the facelift procedure utilizing only dermal fillers and Botox. At his Long Island practice, Dr. Lloyd Landsman has assisted many patients who want an evenly rejuvenated face without signing up for surgery. Here is what you need to know about liquid facelift:
The Benefits of Liquid Facelift
Dermal fillers address many of the same issues that facelift surgery does:
- Minimizing wrinkles and lines
- Tightening up loose skin around your cheeks and jawline
- Rejuvenating the texture and appearance of your skin
- Restoring volume to your face
While any one injection may produce subtle results, liquid facelift injections in totality should refresh your face once the fillers settle in over the coming weeks.
Plus, facelift surgery usually focuses on the lower half of your face. With liquid facelift you can address issues everywhere on your face, like crow’s feet, brow wrinkles and undereye creases. You can even ask for some filler to plump up your lips while you are it.
Liquid Facelift Is Quicker in Every Way
Typically, it takes no more than twenty minutes to receive all the necessary injections to give your face the improvements you seek. Unlike with surgery, you can also walk out of the office and resume normal activities without pain or serious swelling, let alone a one- to two-week recovery period.
The trade-off for skipping the downtime that accompanies surgery is that the results last for a shorter time as well. To maintain the look you achieve with liquid facelift, you will have to come back every several months or so — timelines differ depending on the brand of fillers used and the areas that have been treated.
The temporary nature of liquid facelift is not always a negative, however. People who are afraid to do anything permanent can experience transformative cosmetic changes without a long-term commitment via liquid facelift. Sometimes patients who get a glimpse of their face with reduced wrinkles after fillers feel more confident about exploring surgical options.
Be Reasonable with Your Expectations
Liquid facelift offers smaller changes, so understand that upfront. If you are looking for the full dramatic results of facelift surgery, then you ought to explore the traditional facelift.
In truth, a lot of patients do not want an overly done transformation and the subtler nature of liquid facelift keeps their friends guessing as to why they suddenly look younger. You may consider that a perk all on its own.
