A liquid facelift fills in wrinkles and facial lines while relaxing and plumping the skin. This is done with a combination of dermal fillers or injectables and BOTOX®. This procedure helps reduce sagging skin and restore youthful volume because it fills up the skin from the inside. This is very effective for hollow eyes and drooping facial features. A liquid facelift is minimally-invasive, extremely popular and does not have the risks of a traditional facelift. The definition of a liquid facelift is the smoothing, plumping, re-contouring, filling, and lifting of the face.
The Injectable Dermal Fillers
The most commonly used fillers include RESTYLANE®, JUVEDERM®, and Restylane Lyft®. These fillers are made with different materials for a variety of specific applications. Several of these fillers are often used with BOTOX® to achieve the best possible results. BOTOX® is used because it ensures longer lasting and better results. Muscle contractions are caused by nerve impulses that are blocked by BOTOX®. The BOTOX® is injected into specific areas to relax the muscles used for specific facial expressions. Due to the frequent use of the these expressions, the collagen in certain areas breaks down. This causes expression lines and deep wrinkles to form.
The Power of BOTOX®
Using BOTOX® in conjunction with dermal fillers is especially useful. This can fill in the expression lines. One of the most common issues are the lines that form when a person smiles. The constant use of these muscles will break down fillers much quicker. This will decrease the length of time the results can be maintained before more injections become necessary. Since BOTOX® blocks the muscle contractions, the results last for a longer period of time.
The Temporary Fillers
Some people are not certain if they will like the results of a liquid facelift. In this case, temporary fillers are used so if the person does not like the results, they will wear off in roughly six months. If the individual likes the results, they have the option of using a longer lasting filler once the appearance of the liquid facelift have begun to fade. This is an excellent way to try out the procedure without making a long term commitment.
The Types of Fillers
There are a wide variety of dermal fillers available. The best ones are dependent on the specific uses. Some fillers are designed for specific areas of the face, some have been designed to last much longer and others have been around for a long time. There are also certain fillers that work especially well together. A liquid facelift will help combat the signs of aging without the need for surgery and a recovery period. This type of facelift does not have the risks associated with having surgery and the aesthetic results are impressive.
