Am I A Good Candidate for Liquid Facelift?

The best candidates for a liquid facelift are patients who see signs of aging but aren’t yet ready for a surgical procedure. Typically, fine lines, wrinkles, and mild to moderate sagging skin are signs that a liquid facelift could benefit you. Hollow areas and areas of low volume can also be corrected with a liquid facelift.

Benefits of Liquid Facelift

The biggest benefit of a liquid facelift is that it requires no downtime or recovery. A traditional facelift can require weeks away from your daily schedule and uncomfortable side effects of healing. The liquid facelift can produce results within a few weeks and allow you to continue your regular activities. Some patients also like the subtle nature of the liquid facelift, which shows results gradually rather than all at once – preventing people from knowing you had anything done.

The Liquid Facelift Procedure

The liquid facelift is easily customizable but includes a couple key components.

Botox and Dysport

While Botox and Dysport are not fillers (they are mere muscle relaxers), they are a crucial component in the range of products used in a liquid facelift. The key is their ability to relax the muscles underneath wrinkles, which in turn relaxes and eliminates the wrinkles themselves. 

Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that treats fine lines and acne scars and improves the skin’s overall appearance.

During this procedure, tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to jumpstart the skin’s wound-healing mechanism and produce collagen and elastin. Microneedling also creates superficial micro-channels that can be used with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to further boost collagen production within the skin (sometimes called the vampire facelift).

Dermal Fillers and Radiesse

Dermal filler products used in a liquid facelift vary, but include hyaluronic acid-based ones such as Restylane, Juvéderm, and Voluma, or Radiesse, a calcium derivative collagen-enhancing product, or semi-permanent ones such as Bellafill and Sculptra.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). Radiesse is unique because it can produce collagen in the treatment area, creating natural volume as the product fades.

Liquid Facelift Results

After a liquid facelift, patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. The results of a liquid facelift can last for a year or more with proper aftercare and anti-aging habits.
