The cosmetic industry has seen various treatment trends emerge over recent years that have helped patients fight the signs of ageing. One such trend that has arisen is the liquid facelift, a procedure that helps to tighten wrinkles and plump skin for a younger looking appearance.
As we age our collagen and elastin production begins to slow, with bodies completely stopping producing collagen at around the age of 25. We then begin to lose the fullness and volume that contribute to a youthful look. Surgical face lifts have long been the go-to option to reverse the clock, however with surgery comes the complications and potential risk as well as a costly price tag.
What is a Liquid Face Lift?
A liquid facelift is a non-invasive restorative procedure that offers a quicker and safer alternative to going under the knife. It is a combination treatment of toxins and dermal fillers to temporarily restore a youthful appearance. Botulinum Toxin is used to relax the facial muscles that are used when expressing, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine likes like crows’ feet. Within a Liquid Facelift, a variety of dermal fillers are used alongside the botox to create a full-face rejuvenation. Dermal filler such as Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm and Sculptra may be used simultaneously in different areas of the face. The Dermal fillers work to augment and contour areas of the face that lose volume in the process of ageing. By adding volume to the structure of the skin it creates a youthful and revitalised appearance and in addition the use of toxins works to block the nerve impulses that cause muscle contractions.
How long do Liquid Facelifts last?
As with many injectable treatments, the liquid facelift does not provide a permanent solution to the signs of ageing. Maintenance treatments are recommended after 6-18 months product dependant, however dermal fillers stimulate collagen and elastin production which will help to prolong the longevity of the treatment’s effects over time. Since liquid facelifts are not permanent, you have the option to change the way you age over time with a more natural appearance.
