Liquid Facelift is becoming a popular term that refers to a complete facial rejuvenation in one hour through the use of facial fillers. Unlike the standard surgical face-lift, there is little to no down time with this procedure and you will not have any incisions to heal or wounds to recover from. Although a surgical facelift provides permanent results, depending on the materials used a liquid facelift is long lasting and you can resume your normal routine immediately following your procedure. At Shine Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Daniel H. Lin is proud to offer Liquid Facelift to patients with busy lives that do not have time for surgery. The Liquid Facelift involves the use of different cosmetic treatments and Dr. Lin will design a customized plan that best suits your unique needs. Liquid Facelift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes fillers, injectables, and typically the use of BOTOX® to temporarily reduce the signs of aging in your face. Each of the facial fillers used has unique attributes that work in their own special way to contour specific areas, replace lost volume, or help your body regenerate its own collagen.
As you grow older, your face begins to lose collagen and elastin and the Liquid Facelift can:
- Lift sagging facial features
- Smooth fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds
- Restore natural contours
- Smooth out your complexion
- Reduce the appearance of under eye swelling or discoloration
- Lift droopy eyelids
- Add fullness and definition to your lips
- Rejuvenate and soften lines between your brows and around your nose and mouth
- Correct some irregularities of the nose, including dips that can be filled to restore the symmetry or hollow areas
- Enhance sunken cheeks
- Lift drooping jowls
- Augment your chin
- Improve depressed scars
- Improve the condition of aging hands
- Fill in chin dimples
During your Liquid Facelift procedure, Dr. Lin will typically start by treating your skin with a topical or local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Once you are comfortable, he will inject each area of your face that needs treating with BOTOX®, fillers or other injectables. The entire process will typically take less than one hour from start to finish although in come cases it may take longer. You will be asked to return to Shine Cosmetic Surgery in three weeks for a touch-up treatment with additional filler or BOTOX® and some patients may need more then one session to obtain optimal results. After your initial treatment, touchups are scheduled every 6-9 months and it is important to understand that the effects of a your Liquid Facelift will disappear if your maintenance treatments are not continued.
