It is natural that one’s face change with aging. A “liquid facelift” is a common term used to describe non-surgical facial rejuvenation that can reduce signs of age such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and lost volume.
What Is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical facial treatment using the targeted injection of dermal fillers, sometimes referred to as “facelift injections”. When comparing a liquid facelift vs. a surgical facelift, while the results of a liquid facelift may not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift, a liquid facelift offers minimal downtime while addressing various signs of age.
How Does a Liquid Facelift Work?
Performed by a plastic surgeon, a liquid facelift uses dermal filler injections to accomplish three anti-aging-related goals:
- Replace volume to areas that have lost volume
- Fill wrinkles in the skin
- Create a “lifting” effect the cheeks, jowls and neck
When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, these injections can be placed precisely using advanced techniques to minimize normal potential side effects of injections, including discomfort, swelling and bruising.
What Should You Expect During a Liquid Facelift Consultation?
A liquid facelift consultation is a critical part of the treatment process. During the consultation, the patient will meet with their plastic surgeon to discuss the details of the procedure. The patient will outline their goals for the facelift injections, including areas that are of particular concern to the patient. After a medical history and detailed examination, the appropriate treatment plan will be formulated.
When the treatment plan is finalized, the patient should be provided with the planned liquid facelift cost. Because this procedure is fully customized, once the specifics of the procedure is decided upon, an accurate liquid facelift cost should be provided to the patient.
Once the injectable facelift plan is made, the patient should feel free ask the plastic surgeon any lingering questions they may have, giving them clarity about what exactly is going to occur. Essentially, the consultation is also an opportunity for the patient to fully understand the procedure and get familiar with their plastic surgeon prior to undergoing a liquid facelift.
