WHAT IS THE LIQUID FACE LIFT?
The goal of a non-surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure is to lift the entire face or to contour specific facial features.
HOW IS THE LIQUID FACE LIFT PERFORMED?
A Liquid Face Lift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, usually in combination with Botulinum Toxin. The new group of advanced dermal fillers used includes Belotero® Volume, Belotero® Balance and Radiesse®. In addition Botulinum Toxin is used to relax and diminish wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is used in conjunction with dermal fillers to provide added lift and to help the endurance of the dermal fillers.
HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The entire treatment takes between 30-40 minutes. A local anesthetic is required for the fillers but you can return to your normal activities immediately afterwards.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are visible immediately after the injections with dermal fillers. The effects of Botulinum Toxin will take up to 10 days to appear after which you will see a marked improvement in wrinkles.
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECT LAST?
The effects of dermal fillers can last between 9 to 12 months. After 12 months the fillers will gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance (it varies from person to person). The effects of Botulinum Toxin can last up to four months. The effects also vary from person to person. After subsequent Botulinum Toxin treatments, results can last even longer.
