What is Involved in a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment that is performed entirely with dermal fillers and injectables. Our injectable treatments can restore volume, diminish lines and wrinkles, and even replenish collagen to produce dramatic, age-defying results. Plus, since injections are a non-surgical and minimally invasive technique, there is no scarring from this procedure. For these reasons, the liquid facelift treatment is a popular alternative to a traditional facelift.
How Does the Liquid Facelift Work?
The liquid facelift treatment is performed with the aid of a topical anesthetic, which numbs the skin to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. During treatment, various dermal fillers and injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvéderm® will be injected into the face. The products used and the locations of these injections will depend on your treatment goals and the treatment plan outlined by Dr. Contogiannis. The liquid facelift treatment is typically performed in less than an hour.
What Can I Expect During Recovery Following a Liquid Facelift?
The liquid facelift, like most dermal filler and injectable treatments, requires no downtime or recovery period. You may experience minor swelling, redness or sensitivity around the areas where injections were performed, but these symptoms usually fade within a few days. You will be able to return to work and all other activities immediately following your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Liquid Facelift?
The results from your liquid facelift will be visible instantly, as dermal filler products will smooth out the skin and reduce wrinkles immediately upon injection. Depending on the products involved, your results may continue to improve in the weeks following treatment. Most patients enjoy results that last about one to two years. These results can be extended by additional dermal filler and injectable treatments.
