Liquid Face Lifts: Look Younger with No Surgery & No Downtime
For decades, renowned Birmingham, MI plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men look years younger with face lift surgery. However, new advances in contemporary injectable technology enable Dr. Ali to offer many of the same advantages of a face lift – without the need for cosmetic surgery and with no downtime.
A liquid face lift can tighten, lift, sculpt, and rejuvenate the face by expertly injecting various regions of the face with a mix of wrinkle relaxers (such as Botox and Dysport) and dermal fillers (such as Juvéderm and Renuva).
The new “liquid face lift” is a very successful, non-surgical alternative for those seeking a more youthful look without undergoing surgery. Liquid face lifts provide immediate results, have no recuperation time, and are much more affordable than surgery, for those patients for whom the cost of surgery may be prohibitive.
Benefits of a Liquid Face Lift
As a person ages, many regions of the face, such as the cheekbones, temples, lips, and area beneath the eyes, lose volume. As a consequence, the skin becomes loose and drooping, creating a saggy, hollow, weary, and aged look. The eyes may look sunken, wrinkles and folds around the lips may form, and sagging jowls may occur.
However, with skilled injections of facial fillers, lost volume in the face may be replaced, re-contouring facial features, filling up empty regions, and “lifting” the face back into position. Along with facial fillers, Botox or Dysport may be used to relax “crows’ feet” and wrinkles around the eyes and to remove “frown lines” (“11s”) between the brows.
Different facial fillers come in a variety of formulas, each of which is intended for use on a particular region of the face. Juvéderm’s thinner formulations, such as Volbella XC, are the most spreadable, making them suitable for delicate regions like the under-eye area. Larger facial regions – such as the cheeks, chin and jaw – need thicker facial filler formulations, such as Juvéderm Voluma XC.
The majority of facial fillers, such as Juvéderm, are composed of a naturally occurring material called hyaluronic acid. Renuva facial filler is somewhat different. Instead of hyaluronic acid, it is made up of actually allograft adipose tissue, which is an FDA-approved derivative of human fat.
Because Juvéderm is made of a naturally occurring sugar molecule, and Renuva occurs naturally in the body, a liquid face lift is not only very safe, but the results also look and feel extremely natural.
Benefits of a Liquid Face Lift
A liquid face lift costs significantly less than face lift surgery. Additionally, a liquid face lift requires no incisions or scars. While face lift surgery needs the patient to be sedated, a liquid face lift requires just a topical numbing lotion. Additionally, Juvéderm fillers include lidocaine (a local anesthetic) right in the injection to provide a pleasant treatment.
Additionally, face lift cosmetic surgery requires some time off of work or daily activities during the recovery period. However, individuals who have a liquid face Lift may resume regular activities the same day! Some even refer to a liquid face lift as a “lunchtime face lift” due to the fact that patients may return to their job immediately after the procedure.
The Liquid Face Lift Procedure
On the day of your liquid face lift, Dr. Ali will designate the treatment regions, which may include the cheeks, chin, and under the eyes. Following that, the face is cleaned and sterilized, and the topical numbing lotion is applied. Once the region is anesthetized, Dr. Ali utilizes use a very tiny needle to inject the proper quantity of Botox and dermal fillers to achieve the desired results.
Occasionally, Dr. Ali or a nurse may also massage the face fillers into the treated region gently to create a smooth and even look. A liquid face lift may often be performed in a single session. Extended work may require more than one session.
