Imagine waking up and instantly looking 5 to 10 years younger without undergoing any invasive procedures. A “liquid facelift” can do just that.
A liquid facelift, also known as nonsurgical facelift or nonsurgical thread lift, uses injections of dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume in your cheeks, jawline and lips.
At CosMedic LaserMD, we perform liquid facelift procedures that can:
- Lift sagging cheeks – By injecting fillers into the midface area, we can refill hollows under the cheekbones and restore fullness to accentuate your cheekbones and jawline.
- Plump thin lips – Fillers injected into the lip border and vermilion area can fill fine lines and define your lip contours without making your lips look overdone.
- Softens wrinkles – Fillers injected into smile lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows can diminish the appearance of deep wrinkles for a more youthful, well-rested look.
- Define facial contours – Fine-tuning the contours of your jawline and chin using injectables gives a “sculpted from within” aesthetic that frames and balances your facial features.
Types of Liquid Facelifts Available in Washtenaw County MI
At CosMedic LaserMD, we offer a variety of “liquid facelift” treatments to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Botox & Dermal Fillers
These injectable treatments are at the core of most liquid facelifts. Both work by replacing lost volume in the face. Botox relaxes facial muscles to smooth lines while fillers like Juvéderm and Voluma add volume to cheeks and jawline.
We also offer other emerging injectable treatments that work alongside fillers. Kybella removes excess fat beneath the chin. Radiesse stimulates collagen formation for a more lifted, sculpted look.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
This “vampire facial” technique uses your own blood platelets to stimulate collagen production. PRP requires multiple treatments for most noticeable results.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional and ablative laser treatments improve texture, tone and smooth fine lines. Combined with fillers, laser resurfacing can rejuvenate aging skin for a more lifted, less wrinkled appearance.
Preparing for Your Liquid Facelift Treatment in Washtenaw County MI
Before undergoing a liquid facelift procedure, there are several important steps you should take to ensure the best results:
Consultation with a Plastic Surgeon
Meet with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon to review your goals, medical history and do an in-person exam. They will determine the best injectable treatments and techniques to achieve your desired outcome.
Pre-Treatment Care Instructions
Follow any instructions your surgeon provides, like avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bruising. They may also recommend healing creams.
Understanding the Risks and Side Effects
As with any medical procedure, liquid facelift treatments carry potential risks like infection, allergic reaction, nerve damage and uneven results. Your doctor will thoroughly explain these risks and side effects to help you make an informed decision.
At CosMedic LaserMD, our team of highly trained facial plastic surgeons and dermatologists will work closely with you to determine the best liquid facelift solution based on your unique anatomy, lifestyle and cosmetic goals. We strive for naturally youthful, balanced results with minimal downtime.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Liquid Facelift?
Those seeking a more youthful appearance without invasive surgery are ideal candidates for liquid facelift procedures. They work best for:
- People in their 40s to 60s experiencing signs of facial aging like wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of volume.
- Patients with realistic expectations who understand liquid facelifts do not provide the same level of dramatic tightening as a surgical facelift.
- Individuals with basic knowledge of the procedure and commitment to proper aftercare and potential follow up treatments.
Good health is important. Those with medical conditions that may impact healing, such as uncontrolled diabetes, should discuss risks and benefits with their doctor.
Facial anatomy also matters. People with excess skin may require additional procedures for optimal results.
Aftercare Tips Following Liquid Facelift
- Apply ice packs to reduce swelling.
- Avoid touching, massaging or applying heavy creams to the treated areas for at least 48 hours.
- Sleep with your head elevated.
- Avoid strenuous exercise and limit facial expressions for a few days.
- Use sunscreen daily and avoid direct sun exposure to minimize risk of hyperpigmentation from bruising.
- Schedule a follow up appointment with your cosmetic provider 1-2 weeks after treatment to ensure proper healing and discuss any potential “touch up” procedures.
With proper patient selection, expertise and a customized treatment plan, liquid facelifts procedures can provide natural-looking, long-lasting results with minimal recovery time.Schedule a consultation with our team to determine if you’re a good candidate.
