Do you need a non-surgical treatment for skin tightening or a reduction of wrinkles? Many thousands of patients have been helped with conditions like these by undergoing treatment with facial fillers or a liquid facelift. These products have been approved as a safe and effective treatment for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles that can leave you looking older than your actual age. If you are thinking of undergoing any type of procedure, you will probably have a number of questions about what is involved and what steps you should take.
What are Fillers?
Popularly known as the liquid facelift, facial fillers are a type of treatment involving the injection of various substances contained within a smoothly flowing gel. Once injected into your face, the filler goes to work to increase the volume of your skin and lift wrinkles up and out, as well as tightening the overall appearance of your facial skin.
What are My Treatment Options for a Liquid Facelift?
There are quite a few filler products available, depending upon the condition of your skin and location of the treatment area. The rest depends upon our recommendation and your preference. Some common ingredients found in filler products are polylactic acid, hyaluronic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite. Popular brand names include Juvederm® and Restylane®.
What is Restylane®?
Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient found in this liquid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in healthy, youthful skin. It has the ability to increase skin moisture and fullness. Its age-related deficiency leads to increasingly thin skin and wrinkles. By injecting you with Restylane®, we are restoring your hyaluronic acid skin levels and partially reversing the process that led to the formation of wrinkles.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® also contains hyaluronic acid to draw moisture into your skin and smooth away lines and wrinkles. It contains an additional substance called lidocaine that helps us maintain your comfort during your treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Although impressive, the results of a liquid facelift are not permanent. Your skin will continue to age normally after your treatment. Depending upon the product, you will need follow-up injections to maintain your wrinkle-reduction results. The results of a liquid facelift can last up to a year or more before the product is absorbed and metabolized by your body.
