Even with the most meticulous skin care regimen and healthy lifestyle, aging will occur on your face. While you can slow the process, eventually lines and wrinkles appear, and the skin can lose its elasticity as collagen production slows.  If you look in the mirror and see those signs of aging appearing, you have options to maintain a more youthful look, even without plastic surgery. A liquid facelift may be just what you need to erase several years from your face, helping you retain a more youthful appearance.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

The conventional surgical facelift performed by a plastic surgeon is used to lift, elevate and tighten sagging skin through surgery, smoothing lines, wrinkles and improving the youthfulness of the face. This is an expensive and invasive procedure, requiring weeks of recovery and downtime, as well as a hefty price. A liquid facelift offers an alternative to surgery. While it does not remove excess skin or move the skin, it can have similar effects that help you look years younger.

A liquid facelift is performed with a series of injections. One that is used are PRP injections, which adds your own platelet-rich plasma to the skin. This helps rejuvenate the youthfulness of the skin with natural growth factors that help restore collagen and elasticity. The skin repairs itself over several weeks and months after the injections, turning back the hands of time.

Another aspect of the liquid facelift is dermal filler injections. These cosmetic enhancers can add volume under the skin to soften lines and wrinkles, while adding a youthful contour to the face. Dermal fillers can be used to soften crow’s feet, lift the corners of the mouth and restore volume in the cheeks.

One last injection that can be used during a liquid facelift is Botox. With Botox injections, muscles that contract to create frown or worry lines are weakened, softening these deeper lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Combining all these injections together can target the different aging areas on the face, rejuvenating and restoring a more youthful appearance.
