Rejuvenate your face in minutes at the office without surgery!
Remarkable new advancements in office-based nonsurgical techniques now allow for significant and affordable facial rejuvenation without surgery. By relaxing hyperactive muscles and replenishing lost volume, Dr. Kerner can provide many of the benefits of a facelift without surgery. Commonly known as the “Liquid Facelift” because of its use of injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, and Radiesse, this technique allows you to look and feel refreshed with minimal downtime or healing. You can come in during your lunch break and touch up your make up before you leave our office.
Looking youthful starts with the use of Botox or Dysport to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and furrows on your face and neck. The most common areas for Botox in the Liquid Facelift are the brow area (between the eyebrows), the forehead, the “crow’s feet” wrinkles around the eyes, and the neck, where relaxing the muscle can decreasing jowling and improve the jaw line. By simply relaxing the muscles, several components of a natural looking facelift are achieved. This comprises the first part of what some people call the “fast facelift” and is done with almost no discomfort.
Dermal fillers comprise the rest of the Liquid Facelift. By using Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, or a combination of fillers, lifting and filling of tissues and folds can be achieved. The most common location is the nasolabial folds, which are lines extending from the nose on each side to the corners of the mouth. Other frequent sites that are treated include the “marionette lines” from the corners of the mouth to the chin, the lips, the cheeks, the jowls, the nose, and some lines that appear beneath the eyes. Because these fillers can be done in the office, you can see your results in minutes!
Liquid Facelift Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is a Liquid Facelift?
The reason for the word “liquid” in “Liquid Facelift” is because this non-surgical facial rejuvenation is accomplished with a combination of Botox, or Dysport, and fillers, all of which are used in liquid form. Depending on the specific cosmetic needs of your face, any number of different components in the Liquid Facelift might be used. There is no surgery involved in the liquid facelift, and most results can be seen on the day of treatment.
2. Does the Liquid Facelift involve surgery? Do I need general anesthesia?
The Liquid Facelift is a procedure that can be done in the office, without the use of general anesthesia. Depending on the amount of change desired, the procedure can be performed in minutes. In order to make the procedure more comfortable, topical and/or local anesthetics that minimize discomfort may be used. Ice gel packs are also used in order to minimize discomfort. One of the great advantages of the Liquid Facelift is that it does not require any surgery and can be done in the office in a single visit.
3. How long will the Liquid Facelift last?
The cosmetic improvement from a Liquid Facelift lasts for a variable amount of time. The duration of improvement depends on a variety of factors, including the product(s) used, the area(s) of the face being treated, the timing of touch-up treatments, and your own aesthetic goals and concerns. In addition, the combination of products (such as Botox with a filler such as Juvederm), may enhance and extend the results that either might achieve alone. Most dermal fillers, including Juvederm and Radiesse, last up to a year on average, though the products can last longer or shorter depending on the area being treated.
