What is the Liquid Facelift?
The Liquid Facelift is a facial contouring procedure that involves the use of strategically placed Botox and dermal fillers around the face.and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. The Liquid Facelift has gained significant popularity in aesthetic medicine during the past few years. It is typically more subtle than surgery and an increasing number of individuals are trying Liquid Facelift procedures before traditional face lift procedures.
How does it work?
The role Botox plays in a Liquid Facelift
Strategically placed Botox injections can address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. Multiple clinical studies have shown that a modest brow elevation occurs in the range of 1 to 3 mm which in the face can make a real observable difference.
The role dermal fillers play in a Liquid Facelift
In addition to sagging, often an ageing face is less about a softening jawline and more about losing volume higher up in the face including the temples, the eyebrow area as well as the anterior and lateral cheeks. When the lower parts of the face start dropping, gravity is defied by lifting and replacing the lost volume with injections of dermal fillers in the upper parts of the face. Soft tissue volumising techniques using dermal fillers reverse these atrophic changes, yielding outstanding results with minimal downtime.
When should one start with the Liquid Facelift?
The use of preventative non invasive procedures such as the Liquid Facelift in people 30+ ensures an ageing pattern that is more controlled and significantly less obvious. The risks are far less than those of surgical approaches, and the results are impressive aesthetically. The Liquid Facelift offers a valuable interim step in between the minor improvement offered by using topicals and the major expense, downtime and risks associated with surgery.
How does the Liquid Facelift give back a youthful appearance and help the ageing process?
When we are younger, the brow and jaw line elevators are more prominent and the face appears constantly elevated. As we age, the dynamics change and the depressors take over and combined with gravity, a gradual sagging of our brow and jawline takes place. If we can keep the dynamics between elevators and depressors neutral with strategically placed Botox injections every 4 to 6 months, then the sagging that occurs with ageing will be reduced. Once the Botox “kicks in” 5-10 days later, the face takes on a relaxed and refreshed look and the face appears to glow.
