A Liquid Facelift is a term that is used in relation to the utlisation of Botox and dermal fillers to offset the affects of aging. The advent of injectables has resulted in a surge in the popularity of such procedures. At Visage Clinic all prospective patients undergo a free aesthetic consultation , it is at this point that a specific procedure pathway is designed around your facial anatomy. A tailored treatment is vital to achieve the best results and cosmesis. Botox is very affective for the upper portions of the face whilst dermal fillers , a volume restoring product are very effective for the lower portion of the face. Combination treatments using both botox and dermal fillers result in restoration of both facial volume and a softening of deep lines and wrinkles.
Who would benefit from a Liquid Facelift?
The answer to this specific question is related to the facial structure of the individual. From your early to mid thirties the mid portion of the face begins to loose volume. This can result in a hollowing of the mid face, this becomes most noticeable in people that have leaner faces and tend to carry less fat tissue. Loss of volume to the mid portion of the face can also affect the areas above and below. Deep bags under the eyes and a down turn of the mouth can result. Restoration of facial volume using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers helps to lessen the hollow appearance and restores structure and definition to areas where it was previously lost. Botox is very affective for preventing fine lines and wrinkles and can also prevent and soften deep lines and creases in the skin. The upper portion of the face is most susceptible to these lines and wrinkles and target botox treatments are selected muscle groups results in a more relaxed, less stressed visage.
What are the areas of the face make up a Liquid Facelift?
As we talked about the above paragraph, we tend to divide the face to upper and lower segments. For the upper portion of the face botox is very effective. The main areas are the glabella , procerus muscles ( the area between your eyes), the frontalis muscles ( your upper forehead) and your orbiculari oculi ( crows feet). Targeted treatment with botox at these points results in a softer, less stressed and more youthful appearance. For the lower portion of the face, dermal fillers are the main treatment option. The main areas are the nasolabial folds ( the area between your nose and the corner of your mouth) , the cheek area, lips and the marionette lines ( the lines at the corner of your mouth). The specific use of fillers is dependent on the indication and volume loss, bespoke treatment plan is designed around giving the best possible cosmetic affect.
Is there any down time from a liquid facelift?
One of the reasons the popularity of injectable , non surgical procedures has risen dramatically is the fact that down time is minimal, if any at all. Conventional surgical face lifts require anaesthesia , hospital stays and bandages. With a Visage Clinic liquid face lift the procedure is carried our in our clinic and the treatment is well tolerated by patients. Some mild swelling and bruising are the two main post treatment issues we advise on. Bruising can take 7-10 days to resolve, however this can be covered by make up within 12 hours of treatment. Often patients choose to have a liquid face lift prior to the weekend or towards the start of a holiday period.
Will a liquid face lift be very noticeable?
The affect of both combined botox and dermal filler treatments is subtle , but hugely effective in reducing the signs of aging and volume loss. Restoration of volume results in a fuller appearance and softens the contours of the face allowing for a more youthful appearance.
