When injectables and fillers were first introduced, they pretty much served one purpose: to fill wrinkles. Over time, and with off-label experimentation, their use has become more widespread as the effects of volume loss are a constant complaint. Today, the use of fillers to give a more lifted and youthful look to the face is gaining popularity since replacing lost volume via injections allows the skin to take on a lifted appearance and redefines the natural contours of the face.
Whether you know it as a “Liquid Lift,” “injectable facelift” or something else, doctors are using a multitude of different injectables and fillers to give a more lifted and youthful look. Replacing lost volume via injections allows the skin to take on a lifted appearance and redefines the natural contours of the face. In the past few years since the “Liquid Lift” has gained notoriety, the techniques have evolved for the better.
There are more filler options available today than ever before, and they can be used to give a sculpting effect as opposed to just straight wrinkle and line erasers. So, how do you know if this noninvasive, downtime-free treatment will offer you any benefit?
Consider a “Liquid Facelift” if:
- You want to look refreshed but aren’t ready for surgery
- You can’t commit to the downtime, discomfort or recovery that comes with a facelift
- You are weary of anesthesia or medically not a candidate for anesthesia
- You want more of a lift than a wrinkle correction
It’s probably not an option if:
- You can’t keep up the results (expect them to last about six to 18 months on average), which require maintenance touch-ups at least once a year or so
- You already have a decent amount of natural volume.
- You have significant laxity
