Over the years, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contribute to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also lead to the formation of wrinkles, creases and folds. Invasive procedures that require downtime may be too much for patients with busy schedules.
Over the last decade, fillers and neurotoxins(i.e. BOTOX®) have gained immense popularity among cosmetic surgeons and patients alike for corrections of wrinkles. In addition to wrinkle correction, facial features exhibited a gentle lift as a result of the intervention. As a surgeon, these observations blew me away – a near surgical result without the downside of recovery or costs of traditional surgery. We have refined our technique so that, in addition to wrinkle reduction, we more specifically lift and contour sagging facial features.
Using a combination of both fillers and neurotoxins, we offer patients the Liquid Face Lift to help accomplish the following:
1. Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
2. Reduced wrinkles, creases or folds
3. Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
4. A more rested, energetic look
5. A friendlier smile
For example, bags can be masked under the eyes by using Liquid Facelift techniques; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas; corners of the mouth can be lifted; as well as several other facial feature benefits.
It is fundamental that the physician take into account a patient’s unique facial characteristics and goals when performing a Liquid Face Lift procedure. Each person has unique facial features and individual skin types, as well as varying degrees of skin damage, collagen depletion and skin laxity. Goals and desires also vary from patient to patient. Experienced physicians should take into account all of these variables when utilizing Liquid Face Lift products and procedures in order to help optimize patient outcomes.
Results from Liquid Lift procedures are usually gradual and can range from subtle to astonishing. It is common for patients who have had Liquid Face Lift procedures to say that they receive compliments on their appearance without others knowing that they have done anything. In some instances, the results can be so uplifting that they change an individual’s life. As with any cosmetic medical procedure, results vary from patient to patient.
