The Liquid Facelift

Woman receiving a cosmetic injection into her foreheadAs many of us enter our thirties and forties, fat and collagen that is responsible for fullness in the face begins to dissipate. Over time, this loss of tissue begins the onset of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the skin, while volume is permanently lost in the face. In the past, surgical procedures, such as facelifts and eyelid lifts, were the only way to restore a youthful appearance to the face.

At Mesbahi Plastic Surgery, we offer the revolutionary liquid facelift treatment for women and men who desire to eliminate the signs of aging on their face without the effects that invasive surgery can leave behind.

The liquid facelift can improve many aspects of the aging face, including:

  • Hollowness under the eyes
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Creases around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Loss of definition in the jaw line
  • Minor scarring (acne scars)
  • “Tired” or “angry” appearance

A liquid facelift consists of a combination of neurotoxins and dermal fillers strategically injected into areas of the face that appear thin or gaunt. Every patient’s face ages at a different rate, which is why neurotoxins (BOTOX® Cosmetic) and dermal fillers that contain all-natural hyaluronic acid (JUVÉDERM®) or calcium hydroxylapatite (RADIESSE®) are used in unique combinations to diminish aging in the face.

Unlike traditional surgical procedures, the liquid facelift offers immediate results without any downtime needed for recovery. Typically, patients can expect their “new look” to last three to six months, although results can last even longer if proper skin care is followed.

Even though a liquid facelift is very effective, it is not suitable for everyone. In instances where deep facial lines sagging skin have developed, an invasive surgical procedure will be more beneficial.
