During traditional facelift procedures, one or more incisions are made and loose, sagging skin is pulled taut. These treatments involve both cutting and tissue removal. They also require a significant amount of downtime. If you have noticeable signs of aging on your face, however, you may be able to correct these issues with a simple, non-surgical solution. You may be able to take advantage of a liquid facelift thanks to treatment with dermal fillers.
How a Liquid Facelift is Performed
During a liquid facelift, injectable fillers are used to restore lost volume in areas of the face. Once in place, many of these products are designed to attract and retain water molecules so that the skin is hydrated from the inside out. This process has a remarkable plumping effect that smooths the surface skin while giving patients younger, fresher appearances overall. Treatments like these take mere minutes to perform and they rarely involve lengthy recovery times. In fact, apart from mild redness and swelling, you may experience no uncomfortable aftereffects at all.
Why Choose a Liquid Facelift for Your Anti-Aging Treatment?
Procedures with fillers entail significantly less risk than traditional brow lift or facelift procedures. They’re also far shorter in duration and unlikely to require time away from work or other normal activities. With these treatments, many people are able to return to their regular schedules right away.
When Should You Consider a Liquid Facelift?
Many people are reliant upon BOTOX® for the minimization of fine lines and other creases that are classified as dynamic wrinkles. These are typically wrinkles that are the direct result of facial movement. Once BOTOX® is injected, the expressive muscles that control facial movement will become temporarily relaxed, and dynamic wrinkles at the surface of the skin will be smoothed away. These treatments cannot reduce the appearance of static wrinkles and volume loss. With more advanced signs of aging like these, facial fillers are often necessary. If this sounds like your situation, a liquid facelift could be the best solution for you.
