If wrinkles are making you furrow your brow or frown lines are bringing you down, there is a solution to stay ahead of the aging process that doesn’t involve surgery. A liquid facelift carries minimal downtime and can make a big difference in the appearance of sagging skin, deep lines and fine wrinkles. The popularity of this minimally invasive anti-aging strategy is not a surprise, given the plethora of benefits.
Perfect for patients in their 30s and 40s who are noticing slight to moderate signs of aging, a liquid facelift uses dermal fillers to restore fullness to the face for a youthful appearance. When we age, our skin becomes loose, resulting in wrinkles due to the breakdown in connective fibers like elastin and collagen. By targeting these key areas, a liquid facelift will produce results that last:
*Beneath the lower eyelid
*Nasolobial folds between the mouth and nose to help with marionette lines
*Jowls in the creases beside the mouth
The fillers used in liquid facelifts are varied. The type of filler used will determine how often to have a repeat injection in order to maintain results. Some popular fillers include:
*Poly-L-lactic acid: Lasting up to 24 months, this filler has results that gradually appear, making three to four injections over a series of visits necessary. It also stimulates collagen production, helping to plump the skin for a more youthful look.
*Hyaluronic acid: The most popular filler, results will last generally about eight months and are completely reversible if necessary.
*Calcium hydroxyapatite: Results from this filler last 12 to 16 months but are non-reversible.
*Fat or collagen: A temporary treatment for correcting scars or wrinkles, this soft tissue augmentation includes fat transfer from the patient’s own body and can last three to 12 months.
The benefits of a liquid facelift are plentiful. If you don’t have time for a recovery process that is more substantial, this option will have you back to your daily activities after this simple in-office procedure. A liquid facelift handles mild to moderate aging concerns beautifully. Because there is no anesthesia, scarring or stitches, this minimally invasive procedure requires little healing time and none of the risks of surgery. The expense is also less than the cost of a traditional facelift. Since the results are natural and subtle, it gives many patients just the refresh they crave, without looking like work has been done.
