Many people want to look their healthiest and their youngest but may face challenges trying to achieve this. Indeed, it's sometimes difficult for people to look their absolute best even if they eat healthy, exercise regularly, and protect their skin from the sun. That's where plastic surgery treatments come into play and when a facelift can really make a difference in someone's appearance.
Advances in techniques and methodologies in cosmetic surgery have resulted in the creation of the liquid facelift, an alternative to traditional surgery procedures. Let's take a moment right now to consider how the liquid facelift can benefit you.
About Traditional Facelift Surgery
During a traditional facelift, incisions are made around the upper ear area in order to remove loose skin and reduce wrinkles through the tightening of the remaining skin. It's a good option for crow's feet and sagging of the mid-face.
What is a liquid facelift?
By contrast, a liquid facelift is a non-surgical treatment that uses injectable fillers and BOTOX cosmetic to reduce wrinkles, volumize sagging skin, and reverse the signs of aging. In essence, it provides the results of a facelift without the need for a facelift surgery.
Why a liquid facelift rather than a traditional facelift?
Liquid facelifts are non-invasive outpatient procedures, which means that there is no lengthy recovery times as in traditional facelift surgery. Patients can technically undergo a liquid facelift in their lunch hour as well. It's that quick and easy.
The liquid facelift will last for several months, and repeat treatments can be performed with ease as needed. In many cases, even repeated liquid facelifts can be performed at a savings when compared to a single facelift surgery.
Let's look at the two kinds of injectables used in a liquid facelift: dermal fillers and BOTOX cosmetic.
About Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal filler injections are solutions that are used to enhance the volume in the treatment areas of the face. This is great for sagging skin, pockmarks, deep lines, and so on. There are a wide variety of dermal fillers that can be used, the best one for the patient determined by his or her needs.
About BOTOX Cosmetic Injections
BOTOX injections are used to help reduce muscle contractions in the injection site. By doing this, the prominence of wrinkles in that area is reduced. BOTOX injections should not be confused with dermal fillers since their functions are so different.
