The liquid facelift is a technique that uses various dermal fillers and injectables to create a fuller, more youthful appearance, without surgery. Facial muscles and skin begin to sag as the face loses fullness during the aging process. This is largely due to the breakdown of collagen. Collagen is an agent that causes skin to appear plump, firm, and young. Using Restylane fillers and other injectables, such as Dysport, Dr. Hanna can recreate the effect of a more youthful facial appearance, reducing or eliminating lines and wrinkles, filling hollows, and firming skin.
The liquid facelift can improve and rejuvenate nearly any area of the face, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial lines on the forehead
- Frown lines on the forehead
- Under eye bags and hollows
After a discussion with Dr. Hanna concerning the results you would like to achieve, a determination will be made as to which fillers and injectables to use to obtain your desired results. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. You may experience some temporary swelling, redness and discomfort in the injection areas following the procedure, but these can be managed with ice packs. In most cases you can return to your normal activities right away. Dr. Hanna will devise a skin care regimen to prolong your results.
The duration of your individual results will very based on the fillers used, ranging from six months to more than a year. Touchup procedures will help prolong your initial results
