The Liquid Facelift
By Peter Brownrigg on April 27, 2012
Many men and women desire a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated appearance, but do not want to undergo invasive plastic surgery treatments. A liquid facelift refers to utilizing one or more injectable fillers to improve the appearance of the face by minimizing wrinkles, creases, sagging, and other facial flaws that most commonly occur when aging. By using injectable fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic, we are able to remove years’ worth of aging to the face without turning to surgical treatments. While the results are temporary, the treatments may be repeated as necessary. While facelift surgery can provide long-lasting results, it requires financial expense and physical recovery that many of our patients wish to delay as long as possible. Ontario liquid facelift can be an ideal solution for our patients who desire facial rejuvenation but are unwilling to achieve their goal through surgical means.
One of the most popular treatments available at our Ontario plastic surgery practice is liquid facelift. BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers may be combined to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. There are many facial imperfections that can be improved by injectable fillers including crows’ feet, loss of fullness in the face, nasolabial folds, thin lips, and hollow cheeks. With an Ontario liquid facelift, we can effectively restore fullness to the face, restore volume to the lips, and soften wrinkles and creases caused by aging. We customize the liquid facelift treatment to each individual patient, because every patient has unique needs and goals. Ontario non-surgical treatments that may be included in your liquid facelift include BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers.
Liquid Facelift: BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for men and women who have moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is injected directly into the muscles of the eyebrows. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, nerve impulses are blocked in the injected muscles, slowing the muscle activity that leads to the formation of lines between the eyebrows. A wonderful benefit of BOTOX® Cosmetic is that there is no downtime and the results can last up to four months. If you are suffering from deep frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be an ideal treatment as part of your liquid facelift.
Liquid Facelift: Injectable Fillers
The loss of fullness and sagging that occurs in the face is from the decline in collagen in the body. While there is no way to “turn back the clock,” we can reverse some of the effects of facial aging through a liquid facelift. There are many different types of injectable fillers that can be combined in your facial rejuvenation, including Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®. Injectable fillers can soften the appearance of lines around the cheeks, lips, and eyes. They can also restore volume, and some even replace collagen. Crows’ feet, lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles, and saggy skin can all be improved through a liquid facelift. Your individual facial contours will determine which injectable fillers are best suited for your liquid facelift. The results achieved with injectable fillers are natural looking, yet significant. The results can last six months to a year or more depending on the patient and which injectable filler was used. There is no downtime and the results often can be seen immediately after the treatment is complete. Though the results are temporary, the treatment may be repeated as necessary.
