While everyone wishes to age gracefully, for some men and women premature aging is of particular concern. Liquid facelift utilizes a combination of injectable procedures to address your unique aesthetic concerns. Our board-certified plastic surgeon and aesthetics expert, Dr. David Horvath, customizes your liquid facelift to restore a youthful complexion that looks natural without invasive plastic surgery.
How Does the Face Age?
The natural aging process starts in your mid-20s when you begin producing less collagen. Elastin and hyaluronic acid — two compounds essential to vital, youthful skin — also diminish with age. At 30, the cheekbones begin to reabsorb the overlying fat, in turn causing a slow collapse of the facial tissues. The liquid facelift works to restore collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to your facial tissues, erasing years from your appearance and restoring a youthful glow.
Many people struggle with loss of volume and jowling caused by displaced fat, which increases with age. The once evenly distributed fat deposits in your forehead, cheeks, temples and mouth lose volume and shift downward. That shift creates a hollow or gaunt appearance, and the displaced fat accumulates in the lower face, causing jowling. Liquid facelift adds volume to the upper face, lifting these areas to give you back a supple, more youthful facial contour.
What is in Liquid Facelift?
The liquid facelift is customized to your needs, and each injectable provides specific benefits to combat your lines and wrinkles, volume loss and other changes due to age. Whether you’re concerned about frown lines, sunken cheeks, acne scars or thin lips, the liquid facelift can address these problems in virtually one session with little to no recovery.
Botox may be used to smoothen the dynamic lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and around the corners of your eyes. This injectable targets the cause of wrinkles in these regions by temporarily immobilizing the muscles that form lines and creases from years of normal, repeated facial expressions.
Juvéderm and Restylane dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume and redefine the facial shape. Sculptra stimulates your body to produce more collagen, offering gradual but semi-permanent improvement for signs of aging. Dr. Horvath may use Belotero to improve under-eye bags and hollows in the eye area. Belotero is a smooth, flexible hyaluronic acid filler that works well in delicate areas with thin skin.
Is Liquid Facelift Right for You?
You may be an excellent candidate for liquid facelift if you have mild signs of aging, such as volume loss, fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin. However, excessive jowls or sagging skin may require another aesthetic treatment. Liquid facelift is an individualized combination treatment that can give you a boost in facial volume and smoothen specific lines and wrinkles. Liquid facelift is often ideal for people who have enjoyed the results of injectables in the past and wish for more comprehensive treatment.
It’s crucial you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with the training and experience needed to properly perform injectables and liquid facelifts. Untrained injectors are more likely to provide unfavorable results and increase your risk of complications.
