As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.
A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting advanced dermal fillers, such as Restylane® to lift and contour facial features. A non-surgical Liquid Face Lift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:
In some patients the goal of a non surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure is to lift the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. For example, under eye bags and dark circles can be masked by using Liquid Facelift techniques; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas; corners of the mouth can be lifted; and bumps on the nose can be hidden. Many of these conditions and contouring procedures are discussed on this web site, as well as treatment procedures for a variety of wrinkles, folds and lines.
A Liquid Face Lift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, sometimes in combination with BOTOX® or Dysport®. The dermal fillers used are among a group of 2nd generation injectables that provide more enduring results than earlier products. These advanced dermal fillers include Restylane®, Restylane® Perlane, Restylane® Lidocaine and Restylane® Skinboosters.
These dermal fillers have unique attributes that work in their own special way to rejuvenate specific areas of the face. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face or help the body regenerate its own collagen.
The Restylane® fillers used by Dr. Mia, are comprised of natural substances produced by the body. Precisely placed, the dermal fillers can be used to lift or contour any number of facial features. BOTOX® & Dysport® may also be used in conjunction with the dermal fillers to provide added lift and to help the endurance of the dermal fillers.
How long will this treatment last?
It is important to understand that this procedure is not a permanent solution. A liquid face lift is not permanent and in order to experience the best benefits from this procedure, you will require maintenance very few months with BOTOX® and every few years with the Restylane® fillers.
At the end of the day, you want to find a physician that is going to help produce a natural look. Dr Mia will help you achieve this look, as moderation is the key to success when it comes to this procedure, and you do not want to feel overdone or look frozen.
