Many people want the amazing, age-reversing effects of facelift surgery, but not everyone is willing to go under the knife to obtain those results. For patients who prefer a non-invasive alternative, Dr. David D. Magilke may suggest liquid facelift, a carefully planned combination of injections that will rejuvenate the face. Unlike actual surgery, liquid facelift is quick, easy and painless.
Liquid Facelift Benefits
Dermal fillers can accomplish the following, similar to facelift surgery:
- Minimize lines and wrinkles
- Restore volume to the face
- Tighten sagging skin around the jawline and cheeks
- Rejuvenate the skin, giving it a glowing appearance and smoother texture
An added benefit is that while facelift surgery focuses exclusively on the lower portion of the face, injectables can take care of the imperfections above the nose as well. For example, the crow’s feet next to your eyes, the vertical frown lines between your brows and the wrinkles along your forehead can all be addressed in order to match the rejuvenation accomplished around your mouth and along the neck.
Liquid Facelift Treatment Details
On average, it takes about 20 minutes to receive each of the injections, the combination of which rejuvenates your whole face. The team at Portland Face Doctor will use a numbing agent to ensure that any discomfort from the needles is momentary and minimal.
The best part of liquid facelift is that there is no recovery time. You can walk out of the office and immediately resume almost all normal activities, with usually only some mild redness and bruising showing on your skin.
Types of Injectables for Liquid Facelift
Dr. Magilke carries an extensive range of injectable brands, including Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Dysport and Belotero. Having worked extensively with these products, he knows which ones are most successful for each part of the face, as well as where to place the injection points on your face to maximize results. After examining your unique face, he will create an injection treatment plan designed to take years off your appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Liquid Facelift?
Most patients who are in good health and would like to make aesthetic improvements to their face are suited to liquid facelift. During consultation, Dr. Magilke will ask you questions and examine you to confirm that you will not have an adverse reaction to the injectables.
Liquid Facelift Results
Ultimately, the most satisfied liquid facelift patients are those who set reasonable expectations as to what it can accomplish. While liquid facelift can provide great results, dermal fillers will not produce results as dramatic as surgery. Moreover, patients need to understand that fillers will last in your body for five to 24 months, depending on the type and amount of filler used, as well as the location injected. To maintain the results, you will need to come in for regular touch-ups. More permanent results will require surgery.
