Understanding Liquid Facelifts
As a direct result of the aging process, we find that the elasticity of the skin diminishes and that facial volume is deteriorating. If volume loss has occurred, it is not treatable with a regular facelift. This is where the liquid facelift comes into play. If volume has been lost, then volume must be replaced. The liquid facelift is a procedure that replaces lost volume using selection of injectable fillers which work to restore the natural contours of the face.
Some of those injectables are Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse, all FDA-approved fillers for facial sculpting and contouring. These fillers can revive lost volume in the cheeks and other parts of the face. Deep lines, crow’s feet and frown lines are restored to normal using this procedure and the result is a more relaxed, natural appearance. Hollows are filled in and aging signs are diminished. Botox or Dysport may also be used at the same time to address dynamic wrinkles like frown lines.
The liquid facelift is done at The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach, Virginia, by Dr. Kyle Choe, a renowned facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in injectable treatments and facial rejuvenation. Taking from twenty to forty minutes only, the liquid facelift may be done without anaesthesia, but a topical anaesthetic may be used if preferred. The recovery time is minimal, and patients are able to return to work the next day. Sometimes there is minor bruising and skin irritation, but they are temporary and fade quickly.
The liquid facelift requires no surgery or incisions, and is a very simple and painless procedure. If you feel that this procedure is the right one for you and are ready for a younger, more refreshed look, call The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach at 757.389.58500 for a consultation. You won’t regret it!
