Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

Wouldn’t it be great if a doctor could give you a shot that could stop the aging process in its tracks? Sadly, science isn’t there yet. But there are injections that can diminish many of the most visible signs of aging, like wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. 

Neuromodulators (like Botox® and Dysport®) and cosmetic fillers do a great job of smoothing out wrinkles and lifting sagging skin, but most people don’t know that these injectables work well together too. 

In fact, combination treatments are so effective, they’re commonly referred to as liquid facelifts — and they can be a good option for anyone who wants to reduce the visible signs of aging but isn’t ready to undergo a surgical facelift.

At Rostami OPC, Soheila Rostami, MD, and her team specialize in liquid facelifts customized for each patient’s unique concerns and treatment goals. Here are six ways a liquid facelift could benefit you.

6 benefits of a liquid facelift

Everyone has different reasons for having cosmetic work. These are general benefits that apply to anyone interested in a liquid facelift, but you probably can think of others based on your specific treatment objectives.

1. Treatments for every area of your face

Liquid facelifts may include a variety of injectables, depending on what issues you want to correct. Lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, and mouth can be softened with neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport®. These agents can also elevate your brows to help you look more energetic and alert. 

Cosmetic fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Belotero®, and Radiesse® can be used to restore volume and contours in your cheeks, lips, and other areas of your face. Fillers can also be used to camouflage scars and fill in hollows under your eyes.

2. No incisions, sutures, or scars

Liquid facelifts use injections, not incisions. Each injection is expertly and precisely placed for optimal results. 

Afterward, you might have some mild swelling or slight bruising, but you won’t have any stitches or scars to worry about. 

3. No surgical risks

Because a liquid facelift uses injectables, you don’t need to have any anesthesia. A little topical numbing agent or application of ice is all that’s needed to keep you comfortable. 

Many injections don’t require any prep because the needles they use are very thin. No incisions means you don’t have to worry about infections, either. Most liquid facelifts can be completed in one office visit.

4. No downtime

Following a surgical facelift, you have quite a bit of swelling for a week or so. After that, it can be weeks before all the swelling subsides. 

With a liquid facelift, there’s no downtime. Dr. Rostami performs your custom treatment plan right in the office, and you can start enjoying your results right away.

5. Customizable results

Everyone’s face ages differently. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Rostami can target specific areas or your entire face, varying the amount of injectable used to get the natural results you’re looking for. 

6. Less costly

Finally, liquid facelifts cost a lot less than a surgical facelift. It’s true, the results of a surgical facelift last longer — but a liquid facelift can be repeated, and you can opt to treat different areas at varying time intervals based on how your face ages.
