Liquid Facelift: A non-surgical option to rejuvenate the face

With a combination of fillers and injectables, such as Botox and Dysport, a liquid facelift can rejuvenate the face in less downtime and cost!

In these challenging economic times, everyone is looking for ways to look better without spending a lot of money.  That tired and haggard appearance can be refreshed and rejuvenated in a matter of minutes. Wallah, now we have “liquid facelifts”.  What is a liquid facelift?  This is a nonsurgical in-office procedure that can diminish wrinkles and fine lines while lifting and contouring the face.  In a matter of minutes you will look more youthful.

The process involves using a combination of dermal fillers or collagen and Botox or Dysport.  Sometimes laser resurfacing, chemical peels or photofacials can be incorporated.  I prefer to use Juvederm and Botox.  Juvederm is wonderful collagen dermal filler that can be placed in facial lines.  It is used to soften forehead creases, glabellar frown lines, nasolabial folds (the parenthesis deformity), marionette lines, and vertical lip lines.  As well as contour the lower eyelids, cheek, chin, lips and jaw line. The improvements can last for up to a year or longer. 

Botox is used to smooth out fines lines and wrinkles by inhibiting the muscle action that creates these expressions.  This is a safe simple injection that can be performed in minutes and the effects will last for 3-6months.  Most people return 2-3 times a year to maintain the correction.  Most commonly Botox injections are used in the upper part of the face but it can also be used around the mouth area.

The total cost for the “liquid facelift” can range from around $800 to $2000 depending on how much product is required to achieve the desired results.  This is a far cry from a surgical facelift where the cost can range from $7000 to $10,000.  Best of all there is hardly any downtime and most clients can return to work the next day.
