What is a Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift may help various areas of the head and neck for those in Newport Beach, California and other parts of the country. It may be helpful for those wishing to improve the aesthetic appearance of parts of the face, and can rejuvenate these areas with various dermal fillers and injectable treatments. The goal of most of these treatments is to add volume to the area, or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As the skin ages, it loses its fullness and elasticity, which can lead to drooping and wrinkles in the face.

A liquid facelift may help treat crow's feet, frown lines, lips, cheeks, chin, and the nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the side of the mouth. Those with certain medical conditions should not seek treatment and may not be considered a candidate for a liquid facelift and other injectable procedures. Those who have diabetes, cardiovascular problems, neuromuscular disorders, bleeding disorders, autoimmune disorders, and allergies to the ingredients of the products being considered are not considered ideal candidates for the procedure. 

The individual will discuss their goals and needs with a Newport Beach cosmetic specialist to determine which injectables and dermal fillers are right for them. The products used in a liquid facelift will depend on the areas being treated, the goals of the patient, as well as the availability of the injectable treatments at the clinic at which they seek treatment. Cost concerns will also be taken into consideration, as some dermal fillers carry a higher price tag than others. Generally, the longer a products lasts before maintenance sessions are required, the higher the price. Most achieve desired results after one session, but will require maintenance procedures over time.

Most begin to see results right away, and most results improve over the next few days or weeks. Optimal results may be realized after a couple of weeks depending on the specific treatment being used. It is also important to discuss the potential risks involved with liquid facelift procedures. Possible side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising after the procedure. These are usually temporary and go away on their own. Less common side effects include drooping eyebrows, small lumps around the injection site, and flare-ups of existing herpes conditions. Of course, the specific side effects will vary depending on the injectable or dermal filler that is being used in the procedure.
