Aging often causes a hollow, sunken, deflated appearance typically
around the lower & upper eyelids, cheeks, temples and lips. A liquid facelift
is a refined technique to lift and contour sagging facial features while also
reducing wrinkles. Dermal fillers have become more popular than ever in the
world of cosmetic surgery, prompting me to revisit the subject of Liquid Face-lift.
A liquid facelift is achieved by using a combination of advanced
fillers and toxins products. Today's hottest hyluronic acid based
injectable products include Juvederm™, Restylane® Perlane®, and most recently
introduced, Belotero®. Radiesse® and Sculptra are non hyluronic based semi-permanent
fillers. The three FDA approved injectable
toxins used in Liquid Face-Lifts are: BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin®. Fillers help reduce
wrinkles and restore volume in the face, lips, mid-cheeks and marionette lines,
yielding an overall youthful result. Toxins on the other hand add a borrowed lifting
and tightening effect to the skin. Injecting overactive muscles with minute quantities of
botulinum toxin type-A would result in decreased muscle activity. This will effectively weaken the muscle
for a period of three to four months thereby preventing the development of
Why a liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical approach to facial
rejuvenation using dermal fillers and injectable toxins.
Unlike surgeries, liquid facelifts generate immediate results
leaving the patient with instant gratification. The key to a successful liquid
facelift is the artistic skill and extensive experience of the administering
plastic surgeon. A syringe or two of the preferred filler can smoothen deep facial
lines and folds and improve the appearance of sagging facial features. Fillers
are used in males and females to augment cheekbones, lift the eyebrow pallet
and plump up the lips. A liquid facelift can enhance and mold a patient’s
features. Restoring lost facial volume by strengthening your jaw line and filling
your laugh lines are only a few common ways to resurface a newer, younger, you.
Why not a surgical facelift?
A liquid facelift is a popular alternative to the surgical
facelift method and allows the patient who is hesitant about the surgical
option to temporarily see the changes that will be permanently corrected with
While a surgical facelift alone is an all-encompassing procedure
that can lift the sagging skin and improve the large hanging bags under the
eyes and jowls, it cannot solve the loss of fat or volume in the face. A
facelift is an invasive surgical procedure requiring surgical intervention. Another
advantage of a liquid facelift over facelift surgery is that that it is
nonsurgical, with little or no downtime.
How long is the procedure?
A patient undergoing a liquid facelift can be in-and-out of the
surgeon’s office in about an hour looking and feeling rejuvenated. Fillers are prepared
in prefilled, disposable syringes. Today, most filler are dispensed with numbing
agents to ensure a pain-free procedure. Dermal fillers will last for one to two
years depending on the filler used and the area injected.
What is the recovery time?
A liquid facelift requires little or no downtime. A touch-up visit
to your surgeon’s office may be needed once the swelling subsides to ensure
What are the side effects?
Side effects may include some swelling and redness post treatment
that can be controlled with the use of ice packs.
What is the cost?
The cost of a liquid facelift depends on the ingredients used in
the dermal fillers "cocktail". The unique characteristics of each
type of filler suggest that fillers are to be used in their specified areas of
the face. The variety of dermal fillers used in a liquid facelift as well as
the number of syringes used is a major factor in the cost of the procedure. An
average liquid facelift that includes BOTOX or any other injectable toxin ranged
BOTOX® or filler?
BOTOX® is not filler, it is a muscle relaxer. It has the ability
to relax the muscles by temporarily disabling the movement of the targeted area
underneath the wrinkles. BOTOX injections often eliminate wrinkles but wear off
every four months. Although it must be repeated three times a year, BOTOX is a
crucial component in the recipe of ingredients for a liquid facelift and works
hand-in-hand with the dermal fillers.
Why not Fat Grafting?
A Fat Transfer is a more durable solution for the loss of volume
in the face. The procedure is often referred to as “natural facelift". It
is a surgical procedure removing fat from one body area and injecting it into
the face, offering a very natural and popular alternative to fillers. Injecting
fat into the face to look younger has become the more natural and lasting option
for patients who face fat loss. Fat transfer merits its own lengthy discussion.
The procedure is invasive and more complex. It requires a surgical
intervention, IV sedation and more downtime. These are factors to which some patients
may not be willing to commit.
While the results of a liquid facelift may last from six months to one-and-a-half
year, fat transfer can last up to ten years or even longer.
