What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation using injectable dermal fillers to add volume, lift sagging areas, and diminish wrinkles and folds. It provides similar effects to a surgical facelift by restoring a more plump, smooth, and contoured appearance but without incisions or anesthesia.
Also referred to as a nonsurgical or injectable facelift, liquid facelifts use hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, and Restylane. These compounds naturally occur in the body and have a hydrating effect when injected into the dermis. The fillers add volume, smoothing and lifting the overlying skin.
Unlike invasive plastic surgery, liquid facelifts are customized by injecting targeted amounts of filler to the areas of the face that require plumping or contour improvement. For those wanting a refreshed appearance without a major procedure and extended downtime, a liquid facelift is a great option.
How Does a Liquid Facelift Work?
Liquid facelifts involve using cross-linked hyaluronic acid fillers injected into the mid to deep dermis in various parts of the face. The filler microspheres plump up the tissue structures beneath the skin, providing several effects:
- Fills in lines, wrinkles, folds and creases for a smoother complexion
- Volumizes areas like cheeks, temples and around the mouth
- Lifts sagging skin and structures like brows, cheeks and jowls
- Provides overall facial contouring and definition
Unlike topical treatments that only hydrate the superficial skin, dermal fillers enhance both the skin and underlying fat and muscle layers. Results from a liquid facelift with properly placed fillers can last 12-18 months as the hyaluronic acid gradually degrades. The injectables also stimulate collagen production for some longer-term lifting effects.
Fillers are commonly combined with Botox injections to smooth lines and relax wrinkle-causing facial muscles. Our experienced providers at Bellava can recommend the ideal filler formulation and placement to achieve your goals.
