Liquid Facelift Boston
As we age, our facial skin tends to sag. We start to notice bags and dark circles under our eyes, drooping neck skin, and sagging cheeks. Some people undergo a facelift to tighten their skin and restore their youthfulness. However, the idea of an invasive procedure like a facelift may not be appealing to everyone.
For those of you who desire a perfectly contoured face without going under the knife and dealing with unwanted downtime, we have just the solution for you: a liquid facelift. This is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure that is designed to lift your face, restore its contours, and add volume back to your face.
What Is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a procedure in which dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are injected just underneath the skin to ease away wrinkles, restore contours, and fill in hollow regions.
Many dermal fillers are developed from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the human body. This means that these dermal fillers are unlikely to be rejected by the body and are quite safe.
A liquid facelift can lift the skin and improve one’s overall facial appearance, making a person look more energetic and youthful. Even under eye bags and dark circles can be addressed using liquid fillers. Some women choose to use a liquid facelift only to enhance a few facial features, while others use it to enhance their face completely.
How Is the Liquid Facelift Performed?
Because the liquid facelift is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure, it involves no scalpels, incisions, or stitches. At the start of the procedure, the areas to be treated are numbed with a topical anesthetic. The dermal fillers are then injected just beneath the skin in key areas.
The dermal fillers work by filling in sunken areas and smoothing away wrinkles and folds on the face. The improved facial volume lifts your face and makes you look refreshed and younger.
How Should I Prepare for a Liquid Facelift?
Avoid painkillers such as aspirin and ibuprofen in the time leading up to your liquid facelift. Also avoid any fish or fish oil pills because these are blood thinners and may cause bruising to last longer. If you happen to be taking beta blockers or any blood-pressure medications, consult your physician to see whether the dosages of any of these medicines need to be altered.
What Should I Expect?
Because the liquid facelift is non-surgical, you should not expect to need to take time off from work. The procedure is quite quick, as is the recovery. Immediately after the liquid facelift, you are likely to notice some slight swelling and bruising around the areas that have been treated. To bring these down, apply ice packs to the area as directed.
Full results are visible in around 14 days once the swelling has disappeared, and the filler has settled. Typically, your results will be visible for 1 to 2 years. We suggest that you come in for follow-up injections to maintain the results of the liquid facelift.
