Different from a traditional surgical facelift, a liquid facelift involves injecting dermal fillers into the face for a temporary benefit. The process uses dermal facial fillers, or injections, to fill in target areas on the face where natural aging or sun damage has affected the skin.
A liquid facelift is a noninvasive procedure that offers many benefits, one of which is that it does not require surgery. The unique gel that is used in a liquid facelift is compatible with virtually all skin types and therefore greatly diminishes the chance of developing an allergic reaction. Just because of its numerous cosmetic benefits, the liquid facelift is a very popular choice for people who want to regain their youthful appearance but are not ready for cosmetic surgery.
Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
A liquid facelift utilizes dense gel that is directly injected into target areas of the face and/or neck. It works to ‘fill in’ deep-creased wrinkles and lines to restore a more youthful look. The gel is subsequently absorbed by the body and has an overall tightening effect on the skin. The effects of a liquid facelift will continue to improve in the following weeks after treatment while collagen is still developing.
No Surgery Required
A liquid facelift procedure does not require surgery, just a couple of injections. Traditional surgery is commonly associated with some risks and subsequent scarring. On the other hand, a liquid face lift does not cause scarring and is done without anesthesia since there’s very little pain associated with the process overall.
Adds Volume to Skin
A liquid facelift uses injectable gels that provide volume to a tired face. As skin naturally ages, it starts sagging and can lose much of its volume, leaving the skin looking somewhat two-dimensional. A liquid facelift, however, brings back the vitality of the face in 3D.
Compatible with Virtually All Skin Types and Tones
A liquid facelift is for virtually all skin types and skin tones. It also does not cause any adverse reactions or discoloration. This is primarily because the injections are applied directly under the skin and, therefore, the surface of the skin is not affected.
The innovative solution used in a liquid facelift has been clinically tested and, therefore, offers minimal risks of allergic reactions. The solution is highly compatible with all skin types and is readily absorbed into the body without producing any negative reactions.
Delays Traditional Cosmetic Surgery
Although a liquid facelift is not as durable or permanent as a traditional facelift, your face will still get the benefits of looking years younger following treatment. This means invasive cosmetic surgery can be delayed for many years. On average, liquid facelift effects are good for about two years.
No Damage to Skin
Since a liquid facelift treatment injects the gel under the patient’s skin, it will not cause any visible skin damage. The needles used during the process are extremely thin and small, which means there will not be any visible marks after administering treatment.
