While a traditional face lift is the most effective way to achieve that youthful and rested face, many patients are turning to the surgery-free liquid face lift to get very similar results.
Find out more on what the liquid face lift is.
As patients feel the need to supplement with procedures like the face lift to combat the appearance of aging, other less invasive alternatives are emerging. The liquid face lift generally describes using injectables along the jaw, sides of the face, and other problem areas that can appear gaunt. Other combinations of injectables can be used to target problem areas that are not just experiencing sag. Wrinkles and folds in the skin can be addressed. Personalized combinations of injectables can be used to tailor your liquid face lift to what you want to accomplish.
The knife-free alternative to a traditional surgical face lift is a great way to achieve a rested and refreshed face without the concerns that accompany surgery, however, it is not for everyone. In cases of deeper lines or wrinkles, a traditional face lift is still the way to go.
For those with lighter signs of aging who are interested in a less invasive procedure, the liquid face lift may be a time effective way to achieve that younger look. The results are immediate and patients who are hesitant about recovery time, scarring, and cost can rest easy. The liquid face lift is a great alternative, but the results do not last nearly as long as the surgical procedures. Patients who are considering a face lift may try the liquid lift to see what an actual face lift may look like when they decide to pursue one later down the road.
Talking with your plastic surgeon about what the different combinations of a liquid lift can do for you is the best way to know what to expect. You and your physician will be able to communicate and coordinate how your liquid lift can give you the fresh face you desire.
