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.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
