‘Liquid Facelift:’ Injectables for Smoother, Younger Skin

Liquid Facelift

Most people associate a facelift with surgery. That’s when a plastic surgeon repositions sagging skin and facial tissue using advanced surgical techniques. There’s definitely a time and place for a facelift. But it’s not necessary for everyone, particularly for those with only mild to  moderate signs of aging.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift refers to the use of dermal fillers and neuromodulators to correct volume loss, sagging skin, loss of facial contour, wrinkles and folds.

As we age, we lose not only collagen but also fat and bone. Therefore to achieve a visibly noticeable facial rejuvenation we need to address all the ways in which the skin ages.

Fortunately with the highly advanced dermal fillers and anti-wrinkles injections available today. we’re able to rejuvenate, lift and sculpt the face in a way that wasn’t possible even five years ago.

What Happens During a Liquid Facelift?

Every injectables appointment begins with a detailed assessment and consultation. We will go over all your areas of concern and come up with a comprehensive plan for your skin and face revitalization.

The following areas may be treated with neuromodulators during a liquid facelift:

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet
  • Brow lift
  • Masseters
  • Bunny lines
  • DAO’s

The following areas may be treated with filler during a liquid facelift:

Cheeks – aging can manifest itself in volume loss and deflation of the mid-face. We will use fillers to lift the cheeks to a more youthful position and to address any hollowing at the same time. We can also sculpt the cheekbones in a younger patient create a more defined and glamorous appearance. 

Nasolabial Folds – Can occur when the cheeks that have drooped over time. By lifting and correcting mid-face deflation, the nasolabial folds (creases by the sides of the nose) will often start to look softer. If further correction is needed after the cheeks are lifted, we can inject filler directly into the nasolabial folds to smooth them out even more.

Temples – Are often overlooked when it comes to facial rejuvenation. But it’s actually an area that has the most dramatic impact then treated. Filling in temple hollowness can create improved facial symmetry, proportion and make someone look years younger. 

Marionette Lines – Are deep lines that run down the corners of the mouth. They are very difficult to get rid of completely; however, with filler we can make them look softer and less noticeable. As with nasolabial folds, the gold standard approach is to first correct volume loss in the mid-face.

Tear Troughs – Volume loss under the eyes can be genetic or due to aging. In either case, dermal fillers can fill and smooth the area directly under the eyes for a more youthful eye contour. If the tear troughs are particularly deep we may recommend treating the mid-cheek area as well for added support.

Chin – The aging process that cause the chin to curl up or recede. Dermal filler can be used to give the chin a more downward projection and correct any creases.

Jawline – Specialized new fillers that mimic bone are injected along the chin and jawline to give structure to the lower face. Contouring this area can improve jowls and give the lower face a more sculpted and lifted appearance.
