A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses injectable products to minimize noticeable signs of aging. Most liquid facelifts involve a combination of products like BOTOX, Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane and Sculptra. Liquid facelift may be a great option for patients who are concerned about wrinkles, loss of facial volume and other signs of aging, yet are hesitant to commit to surgery.
A liquid facelift is not permanent and the results do not last long. As the injectables disperse by breaking down over a period of time, your facial problems will return. The duration of the results depends primarily on the filler or injectable. For example, Restylane can last up to 9 months, BOTOX will last for 3 to 6 months, Juvederm and Radiesse last for about a year, and Sculptra can last for at least 2 years. In general, the results are found to wear off after 6 months of the facelift injection.
Though you cannot control exactly how your body breaks down the products used in your liquid facelift, there are a few things you can do to prolong your liquid facelift results:
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Use high quality skin care products
- Stay out of the sun
- Avoid smoking and using other nicotine products
Touch-up treatments can also prolong the results of your liquid facelift. Over time, regular touch-ups can help you enjoy the anti-aging effects of your liquid facelift with less product and less frequent treatments.
