Aging signs usually appear more conspicuously on the face, which can make a person look older than their actual age. Many people are keen to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines, but not everyone may be ready to undergo facial cosmetic surgery. In such a situation, the surgeon may recommend a combination of Botox and dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face in a non-surgical way.
This non-surgical approach involving injectable treatments for the face is popularly called a liquid facelift. Sometimes, a liquid facelift may be combined with facial procedures such as eyelid surgery for more effective results. Dr. Jennifer Hui is a leading oculoplastic surgeon providing liquid facelift and other treatments to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, and nearby areas.
The liquid facelift technique may combine advanced, FDA approved cosmetic facial fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, or Restylane to lift and contour sagging facial features. Some of the key aesthetic benefits that can be achieved with this injectable treatment include the following:
- Rejuvenation and gentle lifting of facial features
- Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and folds
- Restoring volume and natural, curved facial contours
- A more effective and youthful smile and augmented lips
- A more rested and younger looking forehead and eyes
Depending on the patient’s needs, a liquid facelift procedure can lift or contour the entire face or targeted facial features. For instance, under-eye bags and dark circles can be diminished with this procedure. Eyelids can be lifted and overall eye rejuvenation can be performed.
Jowls can be diminished, cheek volume can be restored, nasolabial folds can be reduced, corners of the mouth can be lifted, lips can be augmented, and nose bumps can be hidden. As an experienced eye surgeon and aesthetic expert, Dr. Hui receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, and surrounding locations for liquid facelift.
Popular Fillers and Injectables
Botox and Dysport are facial muscle immobilizing injectables that can be combined with dermal fillers as a part of a liquid facelift procedure. When these treatments are used in combination, the results can be more enduring and aesthetically more satisfying. Some of the advanced facial fillers that are popular today include Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Sculptra Aesthetic.
Each of the cosmetic fillers comes with its individual qualities that are designed to address specific facial areas and conditions for facial rejuvenation. Loss of skin elasticity and facial volume can be restored with a liquid facelift. Results are more natural looking and sustainable because these dermal fillers will help regenerate the body’s own collagen and elastin. Most of these FDA approved fillers are based on natural substances such as hyaluronic acid, which makes them safe and free of allergy risks.
While a liquid facelift procedure may appear simple at the outset, but it involves high precision to ensure desirable and predictable results. The injectables must be used in precise volume to meet the unique needs of a patient. An experienced cosmetic surgeon can deliver the safest and best results with a liquid facelift procedure.
