Restylane and liquid facelift vs surgical facelift
Injectable fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, (hyaluronic acid) and Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite), can help replace volume loss that is often seen in the aging face. These fillers can be useful in restoring a more youthful appearance to the cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the mouth, and lips. Although these injectable fillers are often referred to as a liquid face lift, they primarily replace subcutaneous fat and connective tissue volume loss. They can be used alone or as an adjunct to a surgical face lift. However, if there is significant sagging of the face - jowling, etc. - a surgical face lift would be the better option. Best wishes.

Although most fillers are relatively benign as far as having side effects, it's important for you to be seen by a physician experienced in the injection of fillers to confirm you are a true candidate for the procedure. You may find visiting Restylane's website in regards to contraindications to be helpful as well.
Hope this helps!

Restylane "Facelift" suitable for any woman?
First of all, a "liquid facelift" gives volume to the face. This can give very nice results, but it is not a facelift. Next, Restylane is a well known product used to place volume into the face. Lastly, rarely do we say "never" or "always" in medicine. Each patient is different. Best to see an experienced injector. Share with them your goals. they will guide you through the process.

Restylane is one of several good volumizing products
The idea of the volumizers is to replace lost facial volume and shape. Done well, and in conjunction with other treatments - such as botox, laser skin resurfacing, or peels, it is possible to significantly turn back the calendar.
Depending on your needs, a personalized combination of the above options may be the way to go.
Also the surgical face lifts should be considered.
Restylane: Filler v. Lifter?? Ask Dr Ellen
It's important to clarify that Restylane is a volumizing agent, not a lifting agent.
Restylane, and fillers like Restylane, can enhance facial proportion by subtly modifying contour and shape. They are often used in conjunction with neurotoxins which can reduce lines related to animation- example crow's feet, the 11's between the brows, forehead lines. Skin resurfacing procedures like lasers, peels and microdermabrasion can impact on the quality of the superficial skin- by making the skin more supple and pliable.
A Liquid Face Lift is a combination of all, or some, of the above listed non surgical procedures. They can be used in combination with just about any skin type and although do not directly tighten the skin, they can give the illusion of a more youthful balanced facial appearance.
Thanks for asking! Dr Ellen
Liquid Face Lift For Any Woman?
There really is no "Restalyne Face Lift" unless you are referring to a "liquid face lift" which uses injections of fillers to improve facial appearance. Restalyne is just one type of filler that can be used to do this; other fillers include Radiesse, Juvederm, Sculptra, etc. Most people do well with fillers, however some fillers work better for certain areas and different situations.
Injectable fillers are only temporary and therefore will not provide the long term results of an actual facelift. A surgical face lift will actually lift and tighten skin, but is more invasive than fillers. Whether injections are "suitable" for you vs. a surgical face lift would be something you and your surgeon should discuss. “Dr. D”
Restylane Liquid Facelift
Restylane is just one type of filler used in the "Liquid Facelift." The safety and efficacy of HA fillers are almost without equal, but unfortunately they do not last as long as other agents to restore facial volume. Usually, a combination of materials are used to provide the desired lasting results of a good liquid facelift procedure.

Restylane face lift
Liquid face lift involves injection of multiple vials of one of many fillers such as Restylane to improve facial appearance. There are no contraindication to use of Restylane but injection into some areas of the face are considered off label use, that is it is not what the FDA approved it as, but may be used by physicians for that purpose. Not every one is a candidate for this procedure but most will benefit. Your plastic surgeon can go over the details with you.
Restylane liquid facelift
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that restores volume to deflated areas of the face. Depending on where it is placed, it can give a lift, especially to the cheeks and jawline, but it does not take the place of a facelift if there is a significaant amount of sagging. Please consult a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to see if the Restylane procedure would help you.
