A liquid facelift is a non-invasive procedure that uses injectables to minimize noticeable signs of aging. Most liquid facelifts involve a combination of products like BOTOX, Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane and Sculptra. If you are concerned about wrinkles, loss of facial volume and other signs of aging, yet you are hesitant to commit to a surgical procedure, a liquid facelift with Dr. Holy in Phoenix may be a great option for you.
Because a liquid facelift is completely non-surgical, there is absolutely no downtime for patients. Following the treatment, patients are able to immediately return home or continue with their everyday activities.
A liquid facelift will noticeably rejuvenate the face — but only temporarily. Exactly how long the results last depend on several factors including the specific products used, where they are placed, the severity of the wrinkles (or volume loss), the technique of the injector and how quickly the body metabolizes the products. Everyone tolerates liquid facelift injectable products a little differently, but typical results last one to two years.
Though you cannot control exactly how your body breaks down the injectable products used in your liquid facelift, there are a few things you can do to prolong the results of your procedure:
- Stay out of the sun
- Avoid smoking and using other nicotine products
- Inquire about medical-grade skin care or complementary treatments with your skin care team
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.
There are virtually no major side effects experienced after undergoing a liquid facelift. It is possible to see slight bruising, redness, itching or swelling that will diminish over the course of the next several days following the procedure.
