Liquid Facelift: Enjoy a Younger Appearance without Surgery
If you want to enjoy rejuvenated skin with fewer lines and wrinkles, but you are not ready to commit to a full facelift, a liquid facelift at our Halifax, NS, clinic may be the treatment you’re looking for. During this procedure, you will receive a combination of injectable skin treatments to fill in wrinkles, minimize scars, and boost overall volume in your face.
At The Landings Surgical Centre, we offer a wide array of dermal fillers and skin treatments. Drs. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau will help you choose the right combination for beautiful and transformative results.
Am I a Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
If you are in overall good health and are looking for non-surgical facial enhancement, you are likely a candidate for a liquid facelift. This treatment can address:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Wrinkles around your eyes
- Loss of volume in your temples, cheeks, or lips
A liquid facelift will not fully address sagging jowls or drooping skin under the chin. If these are among your main concerns, you may want to consider a full or lower facelift.
What to Expect during a Liquid Facelift
Liquid facelifts are uniquely tailored to meet individual cosmetic goals, so each treatment is different. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss your desired outcomes and carefully select the injectable treatments that will best achieve your goals.
You will receive local anesthetic before beginning treatment. Each injection takes just a few moments, so your entire liquid facelift should last under an hour.
Because a liquid facelift is minimally invasive, it requires little downtime. You may have some slight swelling and bruising, which can usually be concealed with light makeup. Ice packs and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories can greatly reduce any discomfort. Typically, you can immediately return to your normal activities, although you may need to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours. Your surgeon can provide specific advice regarding your activity based on which treatments are included in your facelift.
Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift offers numerous advantages:
- Little to no recovery time
- Minimal discomfort
- Almost immediate results
- Lower cost than surgery
- No need to take off significant time from work
- Safe treatment with few side effects
- Gives you noticeably younger, smoother skin
You should note, however, that the effects of a liquid facelift will eventually fade, with the results typically lasting one to two years. At that time, you will need to undergo additional treatment to maintain your youthful skin. If you prefer longer-lasting results, you may want to consider surgical treatment.
