What is a Liquid Facelift?
Every person likes the way they look. They do not want to look different which is what surgery may do. A superior option for many patients who want a youthful look without going under the knife is a Liquid Facelift. This Facial Contouring Procedure involves the use of strategically placed Botox/Dysport and Facial Fillers around the face. This “injectable facelift” can create a younger, plumper look and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging.
As we age, we start to become the victims of Volume Loss and we lose the soft tissue of our face and the overlying facial skin starts to droop, much like a deflated beach ball loses its shape. Instead of plastic surgery to pull and lift the aging skin, the new trend is to restore the volume of the face to its pre-deflated state with a LIQUID FACE LIFT – an in office rejuvenation program to transform the aging face to its more youthful past.
What are the Benefits of a Liquid Facelift?
Skin laxity is the result of both internal and external factors. Natural aging, genetics, diet, stress, lifestyle, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, exposure to environmental toxins, and smoking may all contribute, resulting in loss of collagen and elastin in our skin. With time, the breakdown of these fibers increases over the years causing our facial skin and contours to become looser and more sagging occurs.
Treatments for the sagging face include nonsurgical cosmetic treatments and cosmetic surgery. In general, nonsurgical treatments are best suited as main treatments for younger patients with milder signs of aging and volume loss or as adjunctive treatments for older patients.
Older patients with more pronounced signs of aging typically need surgery (in addition to the nonsurgical treatments) to produce effective results. However, traditional face lifts come with a variety of problems. Not only is it an invasive surgery, it can leave surgical scars and require extensive downtime for recovery. For these reasons, more and more people are looking for a non-invasive way to give themselves a visual “lift”.

How do you use Facial Fillers in a Liquid Facelift?
The role of Facial Fillers in a Liquid Facelift, in addition to correcting sagging, is also to replace the volume loss that occurs in our face with aging. One of the key factors that contribute to facial aging is loss of facial volume. Lifting the face surgically without replenishing lost volume can often result in an unnatural appearance. Revolumizing the face does not always replace the need for a surgical procedure, but in many cases, surgery can be avoided or delayed simply by strategic revolumization of the face. When the lower parts of the face start dropping, replacing the volume lost with Facial Fillers will lift and contour your features back to its youthful state yielding outstanding results and all with minimal downtime!
Face Lift volumizing is completed over a series of treatments, depending on the nature of the issues you are dealing with, as well as how much the face needs to be “lifted.” Most liquid face lifts are done in two to three sessions. After each treatment, patients will see significant improvement, continuing throughout the series of injections.

How do you use Botox/Dysport in a Liquid Facelift?
In a youthful face, the brow and jaw line are elevated and refreshed. As we age, the dynamics change and the “depressor” muscles take over and combined with gravity, a gradual sagging of our brow and jawline takes place. Strategically placed Botox/Dysport injections can weaken the pulling down of the face which will address the lines, wrinkles, and sagging of aging. The face takes on a relaxed and refreshed look and one’s face appears to glow.
