Liquid Face Lift: Overview
During the process of aging the face loses volume, skin grows to excess, fine lines and wrinkles start forming. For patients not desiring procedures that definitively treat these issues (laser resurfacing or facelift) restoration of just volume is possible.
Liquid Face Lift: Procedure
This procedure involves fillers (Alloderm, fat, Bellafill ( Artefill ), Perlane ( Restylane Lyft ), Radiesse, Restylane, Juvederm, etc.) to rejuvenate the aging face. This often entails using the fillers to restore volume in the cheeks, nasal folds (laugh lines), marionette creases, lips, chin creases, jowl folds, etc.
Liquid Face Lift: Recovery
There is no recovery or downtime to the liquid facelift and can be done in 15 minutes or over lunch. This procedure can be combined with Botox or Dysport to produce more dramatic results. Restoration of volume using fillers is an important part of facial rejuvenation even when more aggressive procedures are desired.
