One sign of facial aging is loss of facial volume. The youthful face has a smooth appearance without noticeable transitions between facial structures. If you are not ready to have surgery, or are not a candidate for a surgical facelift, you may be a candidate for a liquid facelift.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses an individualized combination of dermal fillers to address your facial cosmetic concerns. Depending on your specific goals, you can get dermal fillers that restore facial volume, contour your cheeks and chin, add volume to the lips, and soften fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are made of the active ingredient hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring gel responsible for facial youthfulness and smoothness. Many of the signs of aging on your face, such as the loss of volume and wrinkles, occur due to the loss of hyaluronic acid. During a liquid facelift, various dermal fillers restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves in strategically targeted locations. Each dermal filler has a unique formulation and consistency, and is suitable for different treatment areas. Each liquid facelift treatment plan is designed by Dr. Vial, and is unique to you.
What is the recovery process
after a liquid facelift?
Liquid facelift does not involve an extended recovery process. Recovery typically involves slight increased post injection swelling that resolves in 1-2 weeks. You may need makeup if you develop bruising. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours. You should also keep your head elevated for a few hours and avoid any additional facial treatments.
