If you are struggling with age-related changes in your skin, you might think your options are limited. One option is to stock up on expensive skincare products that may yield little to no results. Another option is to seek a facelift procedure, which involves anesthesia, incisions, and a long recovery.
Many people wish to avoid both of these solutions, hoping there is something both simple and effective that can resolve their signs of aging.
The liquid facelift at Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD, may be the perfect treatment for clients looking to resolve signs of aging without surgical intervention. With a combination of cosmetic injectables, a liquid facelift can create smoother, fuller, more youthful skin.
Read on to learn more about a liquid facelift and how it can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Is Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical treatment that can resolve signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. While traditional facelifts involve surgery, incisions, and scarring, a liquid facelift uses a combination of cosmetic injectables to provide similar results without surgical intervention.
By including both neuromodulators and dermal fillers in the same procedure, a liquid facelift addresses the most common concerns of aging and creates a more youthful appearance. These include wrinkles, fine lines, hanging jowls, sagging skin, forehead creases, and more.
Neuromodulators are cosmetic injectables that interact directly with the nerves and muscles beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of age-related changes. Brands like Botox and Dysport are popular neuromodulators that can diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases.
The purpose of a neuromodulator is to subdue excess facial movement. Continuous facial expressions like laughing, smiling, and frowning can all lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
Neuromodulators limit these expressions, keeping skin tight and smooth. The result is a decrease in the appearance of age-related changes and the prevention of further ones from developing.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that address a natural loss of volume that can occur with aging. Brands like Restylane, Juvéderm, and Radiesse are among the most popular dermal filler injectables used in a liquid facelift.
As you get older, the collagen and hyaluronic acid within your skin decrease, causing areas like the cheeks and under-eyes to lose youthful volume. This can create the appearance of hollow, sagging skin. Dermal fillers contain a hyaluronic acid solution that adds fullness and stimulates new collagen production when injected beneath the skin.
Frequently Asked Questions About Liquid Facelift
What is liquid facelift treatment like? If you’re considering a liquid facelift, it’s understandable to have questions about the treatment. The following are some of the most common questions and concerns patients have before their liquid facelift is administered.
Is a Liquid Facelift as Effective as a Traditional Facelift?
While liquid facelifts produce significant results, they are slightly different from an actual facelift procedure. In traditional facelift surgery, the skin is actually lifted and placed into a higher, tighter position to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Excess skin may be resected or removed to reduce hanging or sagging.
Non-surgical treatments like liquid facelifts use injectable solutions to make changes beneath the skin that alter how your face appears. The skin itself is not altered, resected, or changed. Liquid facelifts are effective and create a noticeable difference, but facelift surgery may be a more suitable option for clients with severe signs of aging.
Does a Liquid Facelift Offer Benefits Besides Anti-Aging Effects?
Another way the liquid facelift differs from facelift surgery is that it can provide benefits outside of anti-aging effects. The dermal fillers used in a liquid facelift can add fullness to thin lips, accentuate the cheekbones, or strengthen a weak jawline.
When Will I See the Results of My Liquid Facelift?
One of the best things about the liquid facelift is that it produces almost immediate results. In the hours following your treatment, you will be able to see and feel a change in your skin.
The neuromodulator injections will produce a tightening effect, with your facial movement feeling more restricted. The dermal fillers will add significant volume under the skin that creates the appearance of youthful fullness. These results will continue to develop in the days and weeks following your procedure.
Is a Liquid Facelift Permanent?
The results of your liquid facelift will be long-lasting but not permanent. The neuromodulation effects of Botox or Dysport injections can last anywhere from three to six months. As time goes on, you will notice movement restored to your face and a re-emergence of fine lines and wrinkles.
The added volume of dermal filler injections will begin to dissipate anywhere between three and nine months, depending on the brand of injections used and the amount of filler. Once the results of your liquid facelift have completely disappeared, you can have the procedure repeated to maintain your results.
