What is a Liquid Facelift?

As we age, we may look for ways to keep our skin and faces looking youthful. There are many options available to help smooth out skin, add volume, and re-create youthful contours. Facelifts are the most common surgical method. But,this option may feel too daunting or a patient might not yet need a surgical facelift. That’s where a liquid facelift can help.

What Is A Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift involves using injectable dermal fillers to smooth, plump, fill in, or otherwise contour the face. These are minimally-invasive, making them a great option for those who do not want a complex surgery that would leave scars. Some of the filler options that our team of specialists may recommend include:

Often, because these treatments have different consistencies and ingredients, a few kinds may be used for different areas of the face. Using a combination method will enable patients to have optimized results with their liquid facelift, which means various concerns can be addressed in one condensed treatment.

The liquid facelift can address various aging signs. These range from wrinkles to depressions in the face. A liquid facelift can treat:

  • Sagging of the cheeks
  • Creases beside the mouth

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Liquid Facelift Treatment?

Liquid facelifts are a great option for many patients. The best way for patients to know if they are a candidate is by meeting with one of our doctors during an in-person consultation. The base requirements for being a good candidate for this treatment are:

  • Have wrinkles/other issues to address
  • Want instant results with little to no downtime
  • Wish to avoid surgery
  • Wish to have the option to change (non-permanent treatment)

When Not To Get A Liquid Facelift

Some patients will not be a good candidate for a liquid facelift if they are experiencing any of the following:

  • Fungal, bacterial, or viral infection at treatment site
  • Pregnancy/breastfeeding
  • Being allergic to any of the components the doctors would use

What To Expect After Treatment
