Summary: In recent years, liquid facelifts have emerged to offer an affordable, comfortable and minimally invasive alternative to traditional facial surgery. More and more people opt for carefully targeted injection treatments that can help them gain more confidence in their appearance by creating a youthful, rested and fresh look once again.
No matter what your concern, anyone looking for visible cosmetic improvement to their facial features should consider the benefits of liquid facelifts. Here’s everything you need to know about a liquid facelift before moving forward.
Why a Liquid Facelift
With advancing age, the human face loses collagen and elastin, which results in general loss of volume and elasticity and leads to the creation of creases and wrinkles. For a long time, cosmetic surgery was the only option for those wishing to get their youthful look back. However, with the discovery of more effective and longer-lasting fillers, liquid facelifts have become an increasingly popular way to enhance your looks.
Whether it’s crease lines, forehead furrows or loss of face volume, a liquid facelift can help both men and women address age-related appearance issues through careful injections of dermal fillers such as RADIESSE®, JUVEDERM® or Restylane®.
A liquid facelift is a non-invasive facial treatment requiring no surgery whatsoever, which makes it both affordable and easy to administer.
Liquid Facelift Benefits
Liquid facelifts can be carefully targeted to achieve specific improvements and address only those areas you want to enhance.
Perhaps the most attractive benefit of liquid facelifts (besides avoiding surgery of course!) is the flexibility of the procedure. This means you can completely customize your liquid facelift to precisely meet your personal appearance goals.
Liquid facelifts can be used to:
- Fill wrinkles and creases
- Add volume to sunken areas such as cheeks or temples
- Give lips a fuller appearance
- Restore a young, fresh and energetic look
What’s more, a liquid facelift can be performed on an outpatient basis – an appointment for injectables typically only lasts from 15 to 30 minutes, and you can get back to your normal daily routine right away. Which brings us to another significant benefit of liquid facelifts: there’s no downtime!
Effectiveness and Cost
While a liquid facelift offers a simple, affordable alternative to cosmetic surgery, keep in mind that dermal fillers and other injectables like BOTOX® are temporary, so maintenance treatments are recommended to enjoy longer-term results.
Depending on the injection placement and amount and type of product used, liquid facelift benefits can typically last anywhere from several months up 1 or possibly 2 years. However, the results of your liquid facelift should be visible as soon as a week or 2 after your procedure.
When it comes to costs, a liquid facelift is relatively affordable, especially when compared to a traditional facelift. Keep in mind that pricing will vary depending on the brand and amount of product used, and can also vary from one medical spa to another. Always use caution when price-shopping, as the skill and reputation of your injector are integral to an optimum outcome; sub-par results are never worth bargain basement prices.
Where to Start
Anyone considering whether a liquid facelift is for them should first check with a med spa professional to schedule an initial consultation. This way, you can receive a customized treatment plan that specifically targets those aspects of your facial appearance you’d most like addressed.
