A ‘Liquid Lift’ is a non-surgical procedure that employs a variety of different injectables and fillers to give a smoother, fuller, and more youthful appearance. It can help to restore facial volume, reduce wrinkles, and provide facial rejuvenation.
Because eventually, lines and wrinkles will begin to appear for us all – a liquid lift can help with a quick, non-surgical fix that can plump lines and erase wrinkles to take years off your appearance.
So, to restore volume or to provide definition, Dr. Boggess or Heather Barbee, RN, CPSN, our Aesthetic Nurse Injector, will strategically inject fillers along the cheekbone, under the eyes and around them, in the temples, lips and midface in order to fill lines and wrinkles, increase facial volume and contour or add definition to facial features. And while there are a variety of injectables available, different ones produce different effects – and not all of them last the same amount of time.
A liquid facelift provides temporary results – measured in months, not years – so patients will need to repeat the procedure for the best outcome.
Using Botox and fillers, here are five areas that can be treated with a liquid facelift:
Cheeks: The midface often displays signs of significant volume loss in the cheeks, making a face look too thin or gaunt. The fat pads in cheeks often need replacing as well. Juvéderm Voluma can provide the right amount of volume and eliminate a sunken appearance.
Eyes: To give a better shape to eyebrows and open up eyes, Botox injected into crow’s feet and between eyebrows helps to relax the muscles that form frown lines and wrinkles, and those that pull the brow down. Further, volume loss in the temples can create hollowing and shadowing. Filling that area with Hyaluronic Acid fillers gives shape, and diminishes the hollows of the face.
Nose: Small bumps on the bridge of the nose or other slight imbalances can be evened out with Hyaluronic Acid fillers, which can serve to change the contour of the nose by straightening it and giving it some lift in order to be straighter and more defined.
Lips: To either augment or maintain the proportions of lips, a small amount of filler can work wonders. For women especially, a decrease in estrogen can cause lips to thin so just a little filler rolls them out, so they look full and more defined.
Our signature Youthful Reflections Liquid Lift includes a combination of Botox, dermal fillers, microneedling and PRP injections. The fillers provide an instant volume with PRP injected above the filler so patients can see and feel the effects within minutes as their skin becomes tighter and visibly smoother.
