Dr. W. John Bull, Jr., a board-certified plastic surgeon, is pleased to offer the liquid facelift – a revolutionary, non-invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Liquid facelift helps to eliminate the signs of aging with several injectable fillers, including Botox, Juvederm, Ultra Plus, Radiesse, Restylane and Perlane.
What is Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a combination of injectable fillers that can plump up, fill in and restore natural facial features that are sagging and tired looking as a result of aging. The treatment usually lasts anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes and does not require anesthesia, incisions or any significant downtime after treatment.
How Does Liquid Facelift Work?
To understand the benefits of a liquid facelift, it is important to examine the structure of the facial muscles. The face has two types of muscles, depressors (downward pulling) and levators (upward pulling) muscles. During the natural aging process, the face starts to lose its natural collagen and elastin, and the depressor muscles start to pull the face down. To counteract this effect, Dr. Bull administers Botox in the depressor muscles, causing them to relax and allowing the upward-pulling muscles to naturally lift the face. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Bull supplements the remarkable results of Botox with additional dermal fillers to help the skin regenerate its own natural collagen, thus giving it more volume. After undergoing a liquid facelift with Dr. Bull, patients will notice reduced wrinkles, creases and folds, and appear more energetic and rested.
Dr. Bull practices advanced injection techniques during a liquid facelift, minimizing swelling and bruising and encouraging faster recovery periods. Following the procedure, patients may experience some redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site. Dr. Bull advises patients to rest one or two days after the procedure to ensure healthy recovery periods.
