What is a Liquid Facelift?

liquid facelift

If you read magazines or watch celebrity makeover shows, you likely know that facelift surgery is no longer the only solution to facial anti-aging. However, many people don't realize that a youthful appearance is as much about facial volume as it is smooth, tight skin.

When we're young, our bodies produce a lot of collagen, which is responsible for the bouncy, plump skin associated with youth that we often call “baby fat.” As we age, collagen production naturally declines, which can leave skin looking hollow. Liquid facelifts use injectable dermal fillers instead of surgical procedures to achieve a contoured, refreshed appearance. This makes them ideal for those looking to complement facial surgery or seeking a non-surgical skin tightening alternative.

Different Types of Liquid Facelift Fillers

Following is information on several of the most popular types of FDA-approved facial fillers available and how they are able to help prevent facial aging. Using any combination of these dermal fillers, our providers can give you a full liquid facelift that will lift sagging skin while filling out facial hollows caused by aging or weight loss.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

The most common injectables use hyaluronic acid to add volume and youth. This substance is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body that can hold many times its weight in water, making it ideal for achieving plump, glowing skin. Each filler listed below uses hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient.

Belotero: This smooth, flexible gel fills in moderate or severe smile lines, vertical lip lines, chin wrinkles, and nasolabial folds.

Juvederm: This filler comes in two formulations that are designed to address all aspects of facial aging in the mid-to-lower face, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Volbella: Volbella, the newest addition to the Juvederm family of fillers, is a softer, smoother option that targets fine lines and wrinkles around your lips and nose. It’s also suitable for lip enhancement and to improve lip symmetry.

Voluma: Also part of the Juvederm family, this is the longest-lasting filler with the most dramatic results. It is used for cheek augmentation and as a non-surgical lower facelift.

Restylane: If you struggle with sagging jowls, a recessive chin, under-eye bags, thin lips, or disappearing cheekbones, Restylane is an option that could provide you with amazing anti-aging results.

Restylane Lyft: Lyft is a special treatment that targets cheek enhancement and restores facial fullness.

Restylane Silk: The makers of Restylane developed this injectable specifically for lip augmentation and enhancement while allowing for injection around the mouth to smooth out lines.

Other Types of Facial Fillers

Radiesse, the thickest filler available, utilizes a calcium hydroxylapatite gel to augment the chin or nose. Calcium hydroxylapatite is harmless to the body and can stimulate natural collagen production.

Sculptra's primary ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which has been used for decades in absorbable sutures. It acts gradually over a long period of time, diminishing scarring, hollow cheeks, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
