Liquid Facelifts – A Possible Alternative to Surgery!

by

A Liquid Facelift can give you a more youthful look without committing to surgery. The patients that usually opt for a Liquid Facelift are the ones who want to restore their vibrant appearance without having a facelift or brow lift. A Liquid Facelift is a procedure that literally “plumps up” a facial area in order to minimize lines and wrinkles. It has become a mainstay facial rejuvenator. The liquid facelift is a nonsurgical way to take years off your appearance by strategically placing a variety of freezers and fillers that can help to turn back the clock.
To restore volume or to provide definition, your plastic surgeon can inject fillers along the cheekbone. Botox may be used to freeze the muscles, most notably between the eyebrows, which relaxes deep lines.While there are a variety of injectables available, different ones produce varying effects. Not all of them last the same length of time.

A Liquid Facelift treats many areas of concern, the most common include:

  • Reduce lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases
  • Subtly lift drooping facial features like the brows and jowls
  • Improve under-eye bags and dark circles under the eyes
  • Lift drooping corners of the mouth
  • Hide bumps on the nose
  • Create a fuller appearance in sunken areas
