Do ‘Liquid Face Lifts’ Really Work?

After looking in the mirror, have you been considering a face lift? Did you know that there are many modern, non-surgical treatments that can help you refresh your appearance in a fraction of the time and at less cost than a surgical facelift? The Orange County cosmetic surgeons at CosmetiCare provide many non-surgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM® that can be used for a “liquid face lift” that takes only minutes to perform, with results lasting several months.

What Is a Liquid Facelift?

A facial contouring procedure, liquid facelifts involve the use of strategically placed dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic around the face to smooth out lines and wrinkles and fill in hollow areas. BOTOX® Cosmetic in combination with dermal fillers has indeed become a revolutionary Orange County face lift method to rejuvenate facial features and improve the overall looks of patients by reducing facial muscle movement and replenishing lost volume in the skin. The “injectable facelift” can address your concerns involving fine lines, volume loss, and wrinkles, giving you a younger look.

How a Liquid Facelift Works

Liquid facelifts work best on faces that are not showing advanced signs of aging. Production of collagen slows considerably as we age, resulting in skin that begins to lose volume and wrinkle more easily. Gravity and the slackening of underlying facial muscle and tissue layers additionally causes sagging skin around the jaw line and neck.
A liquid facelift procedure in Orange County uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to address wrinkles that have been caused by years of repeated facial muscle movement. These wrinkles, which are not even resolved in a surgical facelift procedure, tend to form around the eyes, eyebrows and on the forehead. Dermal fillers are then used to plump up the skin of the cheeks and smooth out wrinkles by the mouth and chin. The result is a much smoother skin tone.

The liquid facelift is a viable option if you are looking to avoid the downtime of plastic surgery and seek improvement in the eyes, forehead, chin, cheeks, and lips. Note, however, that injectable treatments alone will not be able to tighten loose skin or reverse sagging along the jaw line. To correct these cosmetic concerns, a surgical face lift or mini face lift may be needed.

The liquid facelift procedure generally requires maintenance treatments every three to five months, depending on the area to be treated and the types of injectables that were used.

Liquid Facelift versus a Surgical Procedure

Compared to a surgical facelift, a liquid facelift procedure tends to camouflage aging effects for a shorter time period, without actually achieving any repositioning of sub-surface tissue layers. Nevertheless, if you seek rapid, minimal downtime facial correction, a liquid face lift is an excellent method.
