Facial rejuvenation procedures are designed to reduce displeasing signs of aging, such as wrinkles, skin laxity, and volume loss. However, patients often find the idea of cosmetic surgery daunting due to its invasive nature, lengthy recovery, and permanent results. Dr. Matt Goldschmidt offers the highly customizable liquid facelift to give patients a smoother and more youthful appearance without needing incisions or general anesthesia. This treatment involves the use of various dermal fillers that stimulate the natural production of collagen for natural and effective rejuvenation results.
Men and women who wish to minimize signs of facial aging without surgery may consider the liquid facelift if they are in good health and have a realistic expectation of their results. Furthermore, the best candidates for this treatment are concerned about one or more of the following imperfections:
- Facial creases
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hollowed cheeks
- Thinning lips
Liquid facelift Options
Depending on your specific needs and cosmetic objectives, the following injectable products may be used:
- JUVÉDERM®: A hyaluronic acid gel that is appropriate for filling in fine lines and replenishing lost facial volume.
- Restylane®: An all-natural filler used to plump the skin and restore volume to aging lips.
- Perlane®: A formula that is designed to target severe facial creases and facial volume loss.
- RADIESSE®: An injectable that triggers the production of new collagen and tissue regeneration for wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
- BELOTERO BALANCE®: This injectable is ideal for treating moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles, resulting in beautiful rejuvenation effects.
The liquid facelift involves a series of dermal filler treatments over the course of several months, resulting in a smooth surface and a youthful glow. Your provider can apply a topical anesthetic to the injection sites for optimal comfort. You and Dr. Goldschmidt will determine the details of your procedure during your initial consultation with Dr. Goldschmidt. Each appointment can be completed in 30 minutes or less.
Men and women who opt for the liquid facelift do not need to rest after treatment. Patients may experience minor tenderness or redness in the treated areas, but these side effects resolve quickly. Patients can resume all normal activities immediately, but Dr. Goldschmidt recommends avoiding strenuous or high-impact exercises for at least 24 hours.
Patients can enjoy the results of their liquid facelift procedure immediately. After a thorough course of injections and occasional touch-up appointments, the effects can last for several years.
It is unusual for patients to experience complications following a liquid facelift treatment. However, patients do need to understand that any medical procedure does come with some inherent risk. Some of the possible risks may include:
- Prolonged swelling
- Facial asymmetry
