Although a liquid facelift isn’t nearly as invasive as a traditional facelift, it is a cosmetic treatment that will produce significant changes and improvements to your overall appearance. So, it warrants some degree of preparation. In the hands of a skilled and qualified physician, a liquid facelift can treat a myriad of age-related skin concerns, including lost facial volume, fine lines, dynamic wrinkles, sagging skin, and lackluster skin to create natural-looking results.
But there are a few things you should know before finalizing your decision. At Eros Beauty and Wellness, I tell my patients to consider these five things before undergoing liquid facelift treatment.
1. Results are Temporary, Not Permanent
A traditional facelift offers results that last from 5 to 10 years. In contrast, the results of a liquid facelift typically last anywhere from six months to two years, with yearly touch-ups recommended for the best possible results. This makes it a great procedure for patients who want immediate results but aren’t quite willing to sacrifice their time for a surgical or mini facelift—whether because their facial aging isn’t dramatic enough or because their busy schedule won’t allow for the recovery time.
2. Address Many Common Concerns in One Treatment
First, let’s break down exactly what a liquid facelift entails. This highly customizable procedure involves a combination of biocompatible dermal filler injections complimented by neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport®. Depending on what areas you want to enhance, a liquid facelift can address fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of under-eye darkness, provide more contoured cheeks or plumper lips, and resolve harsh lines and wrinkles from years of expression.
3. You Have Options
A liquid facelift isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. After carefully evaluating your unique facial structures and discussing your desired results, we’ll determine the best type of fillers for your treatment. At Eros Beauty and Wellness, I offer a variety of different fillers to help customize your treatment, including Voluma XC, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Juvéderm® XC, and Belotero Balance. These fillers are created with different consistencies that make them ideal for specific areas of the face. Thinner formulas are ideal for treating larger areas such as the forehead and cheeks, while the thicker formulas target small areas like underneath the eyes and the lips for a more controlled approach.
4. Save Time and Money with A Liquid Facelift
If you have been considering a surgical facelift but are concerned about the price and length of recovery, a liquid facelift offers the perfect alternative. Liquid facelifts are much more affordable than a surgical procedure, putting them well within the budget of people who desire improvements to their appearance without breaking the bank. Additionally, if you’re concerned about recovery, taking time away from your work or social calendar, or want treatment before going on vacation, the liquid facelift may be the best option. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their procedure, with only mild bruising and swelling near the injection sites.
5. Experience Matters
If you want the best results possible, choose a physician with plenty of training and experience in injectable treatments. I have been offering aesthetic services to my community for almost 20 years. I have trained with well-known dermatologists and attended multiple courses in cosmetic dermatology. I use this expertise to deliver radiant, natural-looking liquid facelift results that complement my patient’s features rather than altering them.
