The La Jolla Liquid Facelift 

By: scott July 26, 2017

Tired of wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror? Do you hate the idea of surgery? Technology to the rescue! The Liquid Facelift is helping the faces of people just like you look younger, plumper and more defined.

No Surgery? No Kidding! 

Dermal fillers do the work. When injected by a skilled cosmetic surgeon at various spots around the face, the effects are rejuvenating. Though each procedure has its pros and cons, the fillers actually replace the need for a surgical facelift, to a large degree.

An experienced cosmetic surgeon can make a number of tiny injections just on the cheeks or under the eyes. But the more common approach is an all-over use, involving the eyes, jaw, eyebrows, lips and cheeks.

A More Youthful, Contoured Face

The surgeon uses both relaxants and fillers to contour the face, plump up lost volume and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Muscle relaxants like Botox work well on crows feet, frown lines and lines around the chin. Fillers like Juvederm help with lost volume, fine wrinkles and hollow areas, often found in the cheeks.

A skilled physician can lift cheeks and jawlines, eyelids and eyebrows. Laugh lines and wrinkles are smoothed out. The contours of lips and jawlines are more defined.

The effect of fillers doesn’t stop there. This procedure actually improves the quality of the skin by hydrating and nourishing it.

Are You a Good Candidate? 

It isn’t necessary to be in your 50s or 60s to have a liquid facelift. Patients in their mid-20s and 30s can benefit. The contouring can improve features, like the shape of your lips or the look of your cheeks.

If you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s or more, a liquid facelift can add lost volume to cheeks and lips, get rid of wrinkles around the mouth and on the forehead and smooth out uneven skin.

After the procedure, you might experience slight swelling for a couple of days. This disappears within a week. The injections themselves do not cause scarring. That’s because they are micro-injections, not visible to the eye.

Experience Is Key 

Just because the procedure doesn’t involve surgery, don’t think you can safely trust the work to just anyone. You get the best results when you trust the work to a fully trained cosmetic surgeon, with years of experience.
