Cosmetic injectables are a boon for people who desire a more youthful look. Wrinkle reducers, like Botox®, and dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm®, can smooth out lines and wrinkles and fill in areas of lost volume to restore a younger look.
Naima Cheema, MD, and her team at Nexclin Medicine in Roswell, Georgia, offer customized liquid facelifts to help you get the effects of a surgical facelift without the expense, downtime, blood loss, and risk of infection. Read on to learn if this procedure is right for you.
The liquid facelift process
A liquid facelift involves combining dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers to create a comprehensively youthful look. Dermal fillers have different formulas designed for specific areas of your face. Dr. Cheema and her team look at your face and consider your specific goals to determine exactly which fillers to inject so you get the best effects. You’ll look naturally smoother, tauter, and younger.
Goals of a liquid facelift
Like any facelift, a liquid one intends to reduce sagging and wrinkles. Plus, the dermal fillers can:
- Plump up thinning lips
- Fill in hollowed cheeks
- Tighten skin around your eyes, on your forehead, and at your lips
- Reduce hollow areas under your eyes
A liquid facelift may also include additional treatments with Botox to soften dynamic wrinkles. These formulas work best on lines caused by expression, such as smiling or frowning. When dermal fillers and these wrinkle reducers are combined, you achieve better results than you would if you had a single treatment. You get smooth skin and long-lasting results.
A liquid facelift is most appropriate for people who have mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles and moderate laxity. You get a more dramatic result from a surgical facelift, but it costs more and has a long recovery time.
The effectiveness of a liquid facelift
A liquid facelift offers more subtle results than a surgical one, but can freshen your appearance and significantly reduce the signs of aging. It works by boosting the production of compounds in your skin, namely collagen and elastin, that are less plentiful as you age. These compounds add volume and lift to your skin. Dermal fillers encourage the revitalization of elastin and collagen.
Some dermal fillers also add hyaluronic acid to your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural product that hydrates and plumps your skin, but it too depletes with age. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, restore your hyaluronic acid to create a more youthful look.
Wrinkle reducers use a purified neurotoxin to relax muscles that contribute to the lines and wrinkles that form in response to your smiles, frowns, and squints. You can still make expressions following a liquid facelift, but the associated lines are less obvious and severe.
