If you are over thirty years old, you’ve probably begun to notice some changes in your face – changes you don’t like to see. Over time, your body produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid, the structural building blocks of skin. You start to lose those youthful contours and develop a more skeletal look. Skin drapes and sags. Yet you aren’t ready for the risk, recovery time, and permanency of surgery.
What Is A Liquid Face Lift?
You have a beautiful new option thanks to your Liquid Facelift Association founding physician, Dr. Vivian Bucay. Through precise application of widely used treatments such as neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra Aesthetic, and Belotero), you can experience a boost of facial features and a more youthful appearance. Rather than simply reducing wrinkles or plumping lines, this combination process allows Dr. Bucay to focus on actually lifting features to improve contour in a treatment called the Liquid Face Lift.
Candidates For Liquid Face Lift
Liquid Face Lift is a great alternative for patients who:
- Are looking for a more effective method than over-the-counter preparations to address fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
- Desire less noticeable jowls, and more natural facial dimensions and curves.
- Want youthful volume in cheeks and temples that can’t be replaced surgically.
- Don’t want to look unhappy when they are not. It delivers lift at downturned corners of the mouth.
- Want to look as energetic and rested as they feel. It improves dark circles, sags, and a sunken appearance around the eyes.
- Would like to face the world wide-eyed, with a lift to eyelids and brows.
- Don’t want friends to gasp and ask, “Did you have work done?”
How can I prepare for a liquid facelift?
The use of injectable products to restore youthful facial features is conservative and gentle. As such, this treatment doesn’t require preparation such as pre-testing for allergies. To ensure the best results, we suggest that you avoid sun exposure prior to your treatment and refrain from consuming alcohol and other blood-thinning products for a few days.
How long does it take to get a liquid facelift?
Your appointment for a liquid facelift may take thirty minutes or less. The injectable treatments are quick and virtually painless. Before commencing with treatment, you will consult with Dr. Bucay about your concern and what you’d like to achieve. If you have any questions, this is the time to ask. Dr. Bucay will discuss how a liquid facelift works and which products she recommends to help you look and feel your best. Even with your brief consultation, you should be back to your day in no time.
Liquid Face Lift Treatment
Dr. Bucay customizes a Liquid Face Lift to address your issues safely and artistically, with subtle results. You may want to begin with the one area that causes you the most concern, or embark on a full rejuvenation plan. Treatment can be combined with other techniques, also, such as laser resurfacing to improve the texture and tone of your skin’s surface. The Liquid Face Lift method can put off the need for surgery indefinitely, with periodic touch-ups.
How soon after a liquid facelift can I wear makeup?
You may apply makeup and other facial products an hour or two after your appointment. This allows the skin sufficient time to repair the tiny punctures created during treatment.
How long will it take to see the results from my liquid facelift?
One of the primary benefits of a liquid facelift vs a surgical facelift is that you get to see a more vibrant, youthful you in just a few minutes. While neuromodulators like Botox take approximately 5 days to affect the target muscle tissue, dermal fillers are immediately satisfying. You can expect to see dramatic improvement before you leave the office, and the full effects of your treatment within about a week.
Is there any downtime after getting a liquid facelift?
There is no downtime after your liquid facelift. However, you might experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising. Avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications like aspirin can reduce this risk. While you can go back to work and most other activities after your liquid facelift, you should avoid strenuous exercise and other things that may increase your heart rate, including hot showers and saunas. To prevent swelling and the displacement of injectable products, you should not lie down for 4 hours after your appointment, and should not receive any services that press on your face for about a week.
