To restore volume that is lost with time in the upper and lower eyelids, you can always reverse time by contouring your eyes using fillers. As opposed to surgical facelifts, a liquid facelift is a non-surgical process that involves injecting Botox, or a dermal filler, into the skin to plump up the skin. Fillers are considered a knife-fee technique and a creative way to reduce or eliminate fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles in a fraction of the time, without surgery or needing time off work due to a lengthy recovery time.
In addition to eliminating fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, a liquid facelift can also be used to:
• Plump the lips
• Reduce hollow areas under eyes
• Fill in cheeks
• Reduce or eliminate wrinkles around the lips, eyes, and forehead
Collagen and elastin are connective tissues in your skin, and they tend to break down as we age, and in addition to losing fat content in our face, these things together lead our face to looking gaunt and much older. Fillers work by literally filling up spaces left by loss of fat and broken down elastin in the layers of the skin. The result is plumped up skin and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkled and sagging skin.
A liquid facelift commonly includes a variety of different types of injectable treatments that remove wrinkles.
These can include:
Botox – Common and popular treatments for wrinkles
Restylane – A dermal filler that fills in wrinkles and which can also be used to enhance the lips
Kybella – Designed to reduce a “double chin”
Juvederm – Recently approved injectable filler by the FDA
Sculptra – Activates and stimulates the body’s production of collagen
Most patients experience long-lasting results with a liquid facelift and they also enjoy smoother and more youthful looking skin for about a year. Each product has a different lasting-time, so it really all depends on the types of products your doctor may recommend.
Here is a quick snapshot at the types of treatments and how long they may last:
• Botox lasts about 4 months
• Restylane lasts up to 9 months
• Kybella offers long-lasting results
• Juvederm lasts up to 1 year
• Sculptra lasts up to 2 years
Many patients are able to receive touch-ups in order to maintain their liquid facelift, but they should always consult with a professional on the matter.
To begin your procedure, the doctor will provide a local anesthetic to numb the injection area. Your doctor will then inject the filler, or Botox, into the treatment area of your face. Like getting any shot, the injections can sting a little, but they usually take just a few minutes each. All of the injections are generally done in one single session, which usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
