How Does a Liquid Facelift Work?
A liquid facelift is performed with the use of dermal fillers and other injectable treatments. These injectables are strategically administered in different areas of the face to target wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. Depending on the unique needs and preferences of the patient, there are various types of fillers and other products that can be used during a liquid facelift.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
The most common injectables used in liquid facelifts are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. These fillers, which include products like Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane, add natural-looking volume to the skin and create a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion.
Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are also common treatments used in liquid facelifts. These injectable wrinkle reducers feature the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, which prevents the facial muscles from contracting. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and firmer.
A liquid facelift may also include collagen-boosting injectable treatments such as Sculptra and Radiesse. Using ingredients like poly-L-lactic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite, these fillers not only add volume to the facial skin, but they also stimulate increased collagen production. Collagen is a very important protein for the health and complexion of the skin.
