Facelifts are a great way for people to look younger and healthier. Because of advances in plastic surgery, those seeking a facelift now have two options: the first is the traditional facelift surgery where our plastic surgeon makes strategic incisions in the facial area and pulls the skin- tight. The second option is a liquid facelift. This procedure requires no incisions and has a very short recovery period.
What Is A Liquid Facelift- And How Does It Differ From a Surgical Facelift?
Liquid facelifts, offer an alternative to surgery. The pain is very minimal, the cost is lower, and the recovery period is usually only a day or two. It is a simple procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers to counter the effects of aging. It does this by adding volume to the skin, smooth wrinkles and decrease sagging.
Use Of Dermal Fillers
There are a number of dermal fillers currently available. The exact fillers used will depend on what outcome you are looking for and may be complemented with Botox. Our double board-certified physicians at Jefferson Facial Plastics in Philadelphia will decide what fillers work the best for your individual case. While a liquid facelift is considered plastic surgery, it is only a minimally-invasive procedure. Your liquid facelift will be performed in our state-of-the-art outpatient procedure office where your comfort is a top priority.
The only drawback to dermal fillers is that the results are not permanent. Results last between six months to two years. In some cases, the results can last five years or longer. Most patients will need to return for a “touch up” treatment as time goes on.
What Areas Of The Face Does A Liquid Facelift Improve?
The facelift can benefit every area of your face. It can be used to improve your nose, cheeks, forehead, lips, chin, and the area around your eyes.
Dermal fillers correct the signs of aging. Lines, wrinkles, saggy skin, and the bags and dark circles underneath your eyes can all be effectively treated with dermal fillers. Your face and neck will look younger and healthier after your liquid facelift at Jefferson Facial Plastics.
Who Should Consider A Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift can be performed on both men and women. Because the liquid facelift is meant to correct the signs of aging, most good candidates are older, usually middle age on up. However, not everyone is a good candidate for a liquid facelift. During your initial consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will go over your entire health history, your goals for the procedure and also examine the areas of your face that need work. Only our highly qualified doctors can determine if a liquid facelift is right for you. If it is, you’ll be shown before/after pictures of previous patients so you know what kind of results to expect. The appointment for your procedure will then be scheduled.
A liquid facelift can be the ideal solution to restoring your youthful appearance. When your skin is free from the signs of aging, you will look and feel healthier. Call us at Jefferson Facial Plastics to schedule your consultation today.
