WHAT IS A “LIQUID FACELIFT”?
For many years, individuals who were dissatisfied with the increasing number of wrinkles, hollow facial contours, and aged, tired-looking appearance were faced with a stark choice: either undergo a costly, invasive, surgical facelift, or simply accept their fate and “grow old gracefully.” Happily, modern cosmetic and medical technology now offers a third option—the “liquid facelift”. A liquid facelift is an excellent cosmetic option for individuals who are seeking a long-term rejuvenation but who do not have the time or inclination for a surgical facelift procedure. The liquid facelift is recommended for individuals who would like to turn back the hands of time, and seek to:
- Restore the beautiful and youthful contours of their face
- Add volume to areas of the face that seem hollow or flat
- Reduce the appearance of bags and circles under the eyes
- Minimize the appearance of wrinkles, facial folds, creases, and fine lines
- Lift the corners of the mouth
- Reduce the prominence of the nasolabial folds
- Contour, lift, or add volume to a specific facial feature
- Subtly and cost-effectively create a well-rested, youthfully-revitalized facial appearance!
- Restoring depleted facial volume for full, smooth facial contours
The rejuvenation you experience with your custom-tailored liquid facelift will be dramatic yet naturally-beautiful, leaving your friends to wonder what your secret is! The power of the liquid facelift is derived from a customizable combination of both:
- Wrinkle-minimizing neuromodulators (i.e. BOTOX®)
- Volume-enhancing hyaluronic acid-based advanced dermal fillers (i.e. JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, Hylaform®, Restylane® and Perlane®).
Together, these injectables work to simultaneously reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds while adding much-needed volume to your facial contours. The non-invasive nature of the liquid facelift facilitates this extensive rejuvenation in one easy office visit—no anesthesia, extended recovery period, or invasive surgical techniques required, thus allowing you to obtain a refreshed, youthful glow without disrupting your busy lifestyle.
While it may sound simple enough, the safe, effective application of the liquid facelift requires three-dimensional sculpting of the facial contours, and a profound understanding of the underlying facial anatomy, blood vessels, and nerves. To avoid a wooden or plastic appearance, or even more dangerous complications like nerve damage, it is critical to select a reputable practitioner with the skills, training, and experience necessary to safely and successfully perform this highly technical service. At Dr. Q™ Medical Spa, located in Rancho Mirage, California, you can rest assured that your safety is our primary concern, and your personalized liquid facelift will be performed by a qualified practitioner under the direct supervision of Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q™).
THE LIQUID FACELIFT: SUBTLE, STUNNING REJUVENATION IN JUST ONE OFFICE VISIT!
Because the liquid facelift involves a powerful combination of injectables and fillers, no two liquid facelifts will be exactly alike. Every liquid facelift is personalized to take into account each patient’s unique aesthetic goals, problem areas, and medical history. Most treatments will involve approximately eight syringes of different facial fillers, depending on the scope of enhancement and the injectables involved. Anesthesia is usually not required, and many dermal fillers are already infused with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the injections. Most patients can expect mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site(s), but once these temporary side effects subside, the rejuvenating results will be immediately visible. The long-term results of your liquid facelift typically last between 6-12 months, depending on the exact combination of fillers, the area(s) of treatment, and the patient’s unique metabolic rate.
