Liquid Face Lifts Instant Youth
Most people know what a face-lift is, but many don’t realize that you can boost and lift your facial areas for a youthful, refreshed look without surgery.
A liquid face-lift, also known as an injectable face-lift, is a combination of Botox and injectable dermal fillers and can be used in conjunction with newer techniques such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or Venus Viva for more dramatic results.
With a liquid face-lift, you can see and vet the results as the procedure is being done, and you can walk out of the doctor’s office looking years younger in as little as 30 minutes.
Dermal fillers, like Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, Beloterro, are injected to plump up sunken areas, fill in fine lines or deep hollows and furrows, give you plumper lips, shape and sculpt more youthful facial contour. Botox is given to erase dynamic lines, relax tense muscles and correct imbalances in facial symmetry and contour.
Some commonly treated areas:
The tear trough is a groove under the eyes extending from the inner corner of your eyes down and out across your cheek that deepens with age and gives one a tired and old look. Fillers can easily plump out the upper cheek, restoring the look of fullness to the lower eye area.
A youthful face is characterized by full, rounded cheeks that are high up on the face, giving the face a triangular shape. As we age this “triangle of youth” becomes inverted into a “pyramid of aging” as the passage of time causes sagging and jawling.
Fillers like Voluma and Radiasse can easily address the loss of volume in the upper facial area, and restore the appearance of youthful fullness to the cheeks.
Naso-labial folds and marionette lines
Nasolabial folds run from the sides of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth and marionette lines run from the corners of the lips downward towards the sides of the chin. Both of these areas can be treated with fillers to improve their appearance.
Erasing dynamic lines and correcting muscle tension
Botox owes its amazing popularity and success to the fact that it is the quickest, simplest, most reliable way of immediately turning back the clock. The frown lines, crow’s feet and brow lines are some of the most common areas that give the best instant results.
A surgical face lift is still the gold standard, but nonsurgical methods are a good alternative for those who aren’t yet in need of a face lift, or are concerned with the risks and downtime of surgery; or want to postpone the surgical facelift as long as possible.
