A Liquid Facelift Could Be the Best Choice for A Renewed and Refreshing Look
A Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical means of rejuvenating a face that appears aged secondary to volume loss. As we age, we lose fat from our face, especially under the eyes, in the cheeks, and in the pre-jowl regions. As these areas deflate, it makes the face look hollowed, creating shadows where there were none in youth. A Liquid Facelift uses injectable fillers (Restylane, Juvederm Ultra, Perlane, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Radiesse), muscle relaxants (Botox and Dysport), and Bio-Stimulators (Sculptra) to replace the volume lost during the aging pro- cess, thus revolumizing and recontouring facial appearance. Nonsurgical cosmetic procedures are defined as procedures that do not require an operating room, any anesthe- sia or any need for incisions. They are minimally invasive and done in the office setting, with minimal downtime and minimal risk.
The top three non-invasive facial cosmetic procedures, according to the ASPS report, are:
- Botox and/or Dysport: which temporarily reduce or eliminate facial fine lines.
- Dermal fillers: which temporarily plump up areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, nose, brow and jawline and can improve the appear- ance of facial scars.
- Chemical peels: which can smooth the texture of the facial skin.
Here are a few reasons why an increasing number of patients are choosing nonsurgical treatments as an option to looking younger, than surgery:
Men and women today are busier than ever. Setting aside the couple of weeks that would be necessary for surgery and recovery time after a facelift may be challenging when looking at work schedules, kids’ activities and how much vacation time you have saved up. Yet, nonsurgical rejuvenation proce- dures can be completed over a lunch break. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and dermal fillers take just a few minutes to administer, and the results appear within a few days.
Safe for Those Nervous About the Commitment
As consumers become more savvy and educated, they’re also becoming less reluctant to commit to anything they’re not 100% sure about. Nonsurgical rejuvenation procedures are often temporary, lasting several months before a maintenance treatment is needed. For men and women who may feel hesitant about committing to the permanence of surgery, injectables and fillers offer the perfect “try it on and see if you like it” approach to improving their look. The low risk factor of a liquid facelift and very low complication rates associated with these techniques are also a big endorsement for today’s skeptical consumers.
The goal of non-surgical rejuvenation is to improve how you look and feel about yourself. It is not meant to turn you into someone else, but to help you appear to be the best, most well-rested and refreshed version of you.
More than that, self-esteem is often connected to a person’s appearance, and self-esteem contributes to mental well-being, which in turn contributes to physical health. So the benefits of facial rejuvenation go far beyond cosmetic.
When undergoing liquid facelift or any nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure, whether Botox, laser, a skin peel or dermal filler injection, it’s very important to see an experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, that uses the most advanced products and devices available on the market and can provide you with the highest quality products and care.
