What is a Liquid Facelift?
In middle age, every face begins to show the effects of time, revealing imperfections and a loss of gravity-fighting collagen. Wrinkles form, and formerly toned, plump features may begin to sag and appear gaunt or sunken. It is natural for women and men to look for ways to rejuvenate their look and recapture a youthful complexion. Facial cosmetic surgery is a good option, but is not for everyone, and some seek an easier and more affordable alternative.
Liquid facelift uses a combination of collagen-enhancing, injectable products to plump, fill, smooth, and re-contour the face. Injectable fillers can soften or erase wrinkles and provide a visible lift to cheeks and drooping areas around the mouth. A liquid facelift can be tailored to treat a number of age-related issues, including:
- Forehead furrows and frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Crows’ feet
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Vertical lip lines
- Crevices and drooping or sunken areas
Dr. Greenberg’s Approach
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery offers a wide assortment of effective dermal fillers, including Restylane®, Radiesse®, JUVÉDERM® and Perlane®. Depending upon the patient’s facial structure and goals, Dr. Greenberg recommends a tailored combination of products to achieve the desired results. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an important component of the liquid facelift and works to enhance the effectiveness of dermal fillers. Acting to impede repetitive movement in facial muscles, this injectable helps to extend the results of your liquid facelift.
Results of a liquid facelift will generally last six months to a year, with BOTOX® Cosmetic touch-ups recommended every three to four months. Dr. Greenberg will explain the results you can expect, and areas that will not be treated, such as the neck. The liquid facelift does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift or mini facelift and cannot eliminate loose, excess skin. For the best results, the ideal liquid facelift patient has elastic skin and is aged 40-60, with some individual exceptions.
Your Facelift Consultation
At your appointment with Dr. Greenberg, he will go over your health history and treatment goals. He can quickly determine your candidacy for a liquid facelift, and the best way to achieve your desired outcome. With an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and years of cosmetic surgery experience, he is more than qualified to create beautiful, natural-looking results. A liquid facelift requires little to no downtime. You will experience nearly immediate results, with continued improvement for several weeks. Some patients may have bruising and swelling, but these side effects are typically minimal and should resolve within a few days.
