Liquid Facelift with Restylane, Voluma, & Juvederm
Liquid facelift is an increasingly popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment designed to reduce wrinkles and lines from the face, and add a subtle lift to the facial structure. Liquid facelifts have taken innovation in injection-based facial rejuvenation procedures to the next level in terms of effectiveness and sustainability of results.
The procedure combines the benefits of volumizing and collagen stimulating dermal fillers along with neuro modulators such as Botox or Dysport. Dr. Q Medical Spa is a premier provider of liquid facelift and other minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.
Optimizing Facial Rejuvenation
The major soft tissue fillers that are typically included as a part of a liquid facelift treatment at a med spa are Juvederm, Voluma and Restylane. These are used in conjunction with Botox or Dysport to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation outcomes. The patient can expect the following aesthetic benefits with a liquid facelift treatment:
- A gentle lift to the sagging brows and jowls.
- Reduction of puffiness below the lower eyelids and darks circles around the eyes.
- Lines and wrinkles around the corners of the mouth can be removed.
- Bumps on the nose can be hidden.
- Volume loss in the cheeks and forehead can be restored, leading to a fuller, rounder facial appearance.
- Lip enhancement can be achieved.
- Overall rested and youthful looking face can be restored.
People between the ages of 30 and 65 years, who have some amount of elasticity in the facial skin, seek a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure may consider a liquid facelift. Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by dedicated and experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt, provides this procedure to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby locations.
During the initial consultation process, the treatment expert will prepare a detailed injection plan after evaluating the patient’s specific facial issues and their unique aesthetic goals. A customized combination of facial fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Voluma, along with muscle immobilizing agents such as Botox or Dysport will be included.
The expert will inject Botox with tiny needles directly into the overactive, wrinkle causing facial muscles between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes. Restylane dermal filler may be used to address the under eye bags and hollows or dark circles around the eyes. Juvederm will be applied to address smile lines and nasolabial folds. Juvederm Voluma may be used to add volume to the cheeks and provide a subtle lift to the face.
On average, the liquid facelift procedure will take about one hour, but the treatment time may be extended if the number of facial areas to be treated is higher. Local anesthetic cream or fillers with pre-included lidocaine may be used to keep the patient comfortable during the entire procedure.
Recovery and Results
Restylane, Juvederm, and Voluma are all FDA approved, biocompatible fillers based on hyaluronic acid, which requires no prior allergy tests. Minimal or no downtime is usually involved with a liquid facelift. Results will usually last for about six months to a year, but skin volumizing may last longer.
