LIQUID FACE LIFT
A non-surgical approach for restoring lost volume and relaxing facial wrinkles

WHAT IS A LIQUID FACE LIFT?
A Liquid Face Lift is a soft tissue augmentation using dermal fillers, along with Dysport and Botox, to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance.

  • Dysport and Botox relax facial muscles - smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • FDA approved fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra® are used to restore lost volume and lift specific facial features - creating a youthful appearance
  • Natural looking results without surgery

HOW IS A LIQUID FACE LIFT DIFFERENT FROM A SURGICAL FACE LIFT?
A surgical face lift actually tightens and removes tissue in the lower face, while a Liquid Face Lift restores lost volume to specific facial areas such as cheeks, eyes, and the chin. This technique is also excellent for smoothing frown lines, forehead lines, crows-feet and lifting eyebrows.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
With age, we lose muscle, fat and bone in our faces - often resulting in a sunken, aged and tired appearance. A Liquid Face Lift restores this lost volume by replenishing the natural, subtle, softly-rounded contours of youth. Any healthy individual with no serious medical problems may be a good candidate. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, you should not consider a Liquid Face Lift.

WHAT CAN A LIQUID FACE LIFT TREAT?
A Liquid Face Lift is especially effective for treating and restoring lost volume to specific areas such as cheeks, eyes and the chin. This technique is also excellent for smoothing frown lines, forehead lines, crows-feet and lifting eyebrows.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
A Liquid Face Lift combines Botox and Dysport with dermal fillers to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance. Botox and Dysport are precisely injected beneath the surface of the skin into the root cause of the wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra® are injected into specific facial features to lift and smooth away wrinkles and folds. No anesthesia is required, although if you are extremely sensitive, an anesthetic cream or an ice pack may be applied prior to your trearment. Discomfort is minimal and there is little to no downtime.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
A Liquid Face Lift is highly customizable, making the duration of the results individual to each patient. Treatments such as Botox and Dysport typically last up to 4 months and dermal fillers can last anywhere from months to 2 years.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Soreness, mild bruising, headache and temporary eyelid droop have been reported nationally. At SkinCare Physicians & Surgeons, only highly experienced board-certified physicians and certified nurse practitioners administer aesthetic injectables. Side effects are rare.

AESTHETIC INJECTABLES - HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT?

  • Botox and Dysport relax facial muscles - smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvederm®, and Sculptra® are used to restore lost volume and lift specific facial features - creating a youthful appearance.
  • Other facial injectables such as Sculptra® are naturally and gradually absorbed by the body, stimulating the formation of new collagen. These fillers restore volume and fullnes and are especially effective for treating shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
