If you enjoy keeping up with the latest trends in skin care and anti-aging treatments, you may have heard the term liquid facelift. "Liquid facelift" is the phase used for a combination of injectable procedures that can address some of the issues associated with aging – like loss of volume or the appearance of wrinkles – without going through invasive surgery or recovery.
There are currently several options for both tox/wrinkle reducers and dermal fillers, and most providers will customize your treatment to address your specific concerns. Among the products commonly used include:
Wrinkle Reducers: Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau
Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers: Juvederm product line, and Restylane product line, Belotero, Versa, RHA Collection
Collagen-Boosting Fillers: Radiesse, Sculptra, Bellafill
Threads: PDO threads such as MINT, NovaThreads, Les Encres, PDO Max PLLA/PGA Instalift Sutures
Are you a candidate for a liquid facelift?
Ideal candidates for a liquid facelift include patients who have mild signs of aging and do not have excessively sagging/heavy skin.
The thing to consider when thinking about a liquid facelift is that the treatments require maintenance, and are designed to give you a boost in volume or smooth out wrinkles.
Keep in mind that there are limits to what fillers & threads can do while still preserving your natural look. If you have heavy jowls or loose excess skin on your face and neck, fillers/threads can't effectively address that completely.
How much does a liquid facelift cost?
In general, liquid facelifts cost less than surgical facelifts. The cost of a liquid facelift depends on a number of factors, including:
where you’re located. Typically higher cost in bigger cities
the type of dermal injections you choose
how many injections you have
In order to find out the exact cost of a liquid facelift, it’s best to have a consult first to determine exactly what you need. Since it’s a cosmetic procedure, it’s unlikely that your insurance will cover it.
What’s the recovery like for a liquid facelift?
Recovery time for a liquid facelift is generally minimal, although you might want to take it easy for the first few days after your procedure. Generally, you might experience some bruising, swelling, and redness, but other than that, you should be good to resume your normal day-to-day activities. Whether you’re looking to reduce subtle signs of aging or filling out an area that you’re self-conscious about, liquid facelifts can be a safe, cost-effective way to get that refreshed and rejuvenated look. If you have tried injectables on an individual basis, but are ready to try a more complete approach to addressing signs of aging on your face, a liquid facelift may be the answer you're looking for.
