A Minimally Invasive Alternative to a Facelift

Restoring a youthful, natural facial appearance is something that many people desire today. However, in many cases, they are looking for a less invasive procedure than the traditional facelift to achieve this goal. A liquid facelift, a minimally invasive procedure sometimes referred to as a lunch hour facelift, is an alternative to the traditional facelift.

What exactly is a liquid facelift? It’s the use of injectable dermal fillers to restore missing volume to specific areas of the face. This facial contouring can postpone the need for more invasive surgery, and still make the patient look younger in a natural way. Overall, the facelift can help the patient look more rested and youthful. Specifically, it can be used to improve smile lines, marionette lines (the lines which run from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth), cheek hollows and creases, chin creases, frown lines, mid-face, and hollows under the eyes. On many occasions, patients claim that others comment on how they look better without noticing that they had any work done.

A great benefit of the liquid facelift is that there is minimal to no downtime following the procedure, as opposed to the traditional facelift. Typically, patients can resume normal activities immediately after a liquid facelift. Most patients are surprised by the minimal discomfort they experience during a liquid facelift. It’s performed by placing small injections into specific areas. Physicians can use a variety of special injection techniques to minimize discomfort. Topical and/or local anesthetic can also be used to provide more comfort.

The longevity of the liquid facelift depends on the type of product used and the body’s response to it. The majority of fillers last from six months to two years. Liquid facelifts can be repeated as often as the patient desires. In most cases, liquid facelift costs much less than traditional facelifts. They also can cover all areas of the face; traditional facelifts are more concentrated. However, it is important to understand that they do not completely replace the goals of a facelift and often times the procedures can be additive to each other.

Safety is of the utmost importance when undergoing a liquid facelift and patients should be certain that all products used in their procedure are medically approved.
