As we enter our 30s and 40s, little signs of ageing like wrinkles around corners of eyes, lines on foreheads, necklines and cheek jowls etc. start showing up, slowly but surely. Clinic Dermatech, North India’s Most Awarded Skincare Clinic offers Liquid Facelift, an effective solution to turn back the clock, without going under the knife.
What Is a Liquid Facelift?
Liquid Facelift from Clinic Dermatech involves Dermal Fillers and Botox injections to the face and is a non-surgical procedure.
With age, skin’s collagen production slows down, and fat is lost, which leads to drooping of cheeks and elongation of under-eye hollows. These fillers plump up the face, thereby countering sagging skin and adding volume to the cheeks and under the eyes. Botox, which uses a weaker strain of Botolium toxin, freezes the muscles in the skin that lead to furrowing and lines, thereby reducing them.
What Does a Liquid Facelift Do?
Liquid Facelift works on or around the prime focus points of a person’s gaze. Essentially whenever someone looks at another person, the eyes skim the main points like the forehead, eyes, cheeks, nose, lips, neck, and the brain quickly notes things.
The goal of a Liquid Facelift is to reduce or scale back drooping and wrinkles. What it also does is:
- It pumps up thinning lips
- Fills the hollow areas beneath the sunken eyes
- Lifts drooping cheeks if they appear bony and gaunt
- Tightens the skin around lips, eyes, and forehead – eliminating wrinkles
- Reduces the looks of scars
How Liquid Facelift Differs From and Scores Over Surgical Facelift?
Liquid Facelift is done through injections wherein fine needles deliver the product to different points on the face and neck. It is different from a Surgical Facelift as the latter involves anaesthesia, operating surgeons, cutting the skin and the like, which means higher costs and extended downtime.
Liquid Facelift, a non-surgical facelift procedure, is preferred over traditional Surgical Facelift by clients due to several reasons. These are:
- It gives more subtle changes and natural-looking results.
- It is a faster procedure with minimal downtime (lesser time required for recovery.)
- There are limited bruising, swelling and other side-effects.
- It does not burn holes in the pockets.
It is advisable to take the advice of a dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon when opting for a Liquid Facelift to check if it is suitable as per your desired outcome.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
Liquid Facelift aims at giving subtle improvements to your facial appearance. A person with early signs of ageing like fewer wrinkles and lesser sagging skin is best suited for Liquid Facelift. Usually, Liquid Facelift is chosen by people of both genders in the age group of 30-40-50 years. The procedure is sometimes chosen by people in their 60s and 70s too,
If a person has a lot of wrinkles or drooping skin, then for dramatic results and massive improvement, a Surgical Facelift procedure is apt.
How will a Liquid Facelift work?
As one ages, the connective tissues in the skin — like scleroprotein and albuminoid — break down. One also tends to lose fat (or facial volume) that causes the skin to sag as the skin loses its cushion. It is the primary reason why cheeks turn into hanging jowls. Fat loss in the face also makes one look gaunt and bony. As this makes a person appear older, many people like to go for medical solutions with an aim to reverse or reduce this phenomenon.
Due to cost, recovery time, fear of surgery amongst other factors, people prefer Non-Surgical options which make Liquid Facelift an ideal solution.
Liquid Facelift involves using both Dermal Fillers and Botox to reduce the signs of ageing. Fillers work by filling up the empty spaces or hollows within the skin layers. It plumps up the skin from within which diminishes the wrinkles and drooping skin, giving a lifting effect to the skin. Botox freezes the muscles in the skin that lead to furrowing and lines, thereby lessening them.
Depending on the brand and volume injected, the effects last from 6 months to a year and even two years. It happens as the body processes the injectables and the effect diminishes with time.
What are the Targeted Areas for a Liquid Facelift?
Liquid Facelifts, as the name suggests, are generally for the face. However, one can use dermal fillers and botox to reduce wrinkles on hands, feet and other parts of the body too.
The performing dermatologist or plastic surgeon will focus on the following areas of a face during Liquid Facelift:
- Temple (forehead)
- Near Eyebrows
- Under the eyes
- Lines and Folds between Nose and Mouth
- Scars (if any)
It is important to note that the procedure for each person will vary according to their concerns and desired results. Therefore the injections points or treated areas will differ from client to client as will the volume or units of dermal fillers and botox.
What is the Procedure for a Liquid Facelift?
At Clinic Dermatech, clients are encouraged to discuss their expectations with leading Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons who perform Liquid Facelifts. The doctor first examines the skin and understands the expectations and results desired by the client.
At the start of the procedure, the doctor provides local anaesthesia to numb the target area. Fine needles administer the injectables to the site or target area which might sting a little. Each chosen area usually takes a few injections.
Liquid Facelift usually takes between 15-30 minutes and can be completed within one session.
How to Prepare for a Liquid Facelift?
While not much is required by way of preparation for a Liquid Facelift, it is advisable to ask the doctor for a list of Dos and Don’ts to be on the safe side. Usually, doctors ask clients to avoid their intake of alcohol and painkillers a few days before the procedure. On the designated day, the face should be free of any makeup, sunburns, infections and wounds.
It always helps to get plenty of rest the night before and to arrive early for an appointment. These help one to relax and prepare for the procedure and calm jittery nerves (if any).
What are the Risks or Side-Effects of Liquid Facelift?
Minor side-effects of bruising, swelling, and redness can occur after the procedure. Some pain, swelling, and redness may also occur post-procedure. Bruising happens more in areas that have thin skin like the hollows under the eyes or lips. However, the bruising with Liquid Facelift is way lesser in comparison to one with Surgical Facelift and doesn’t last long.
A skilled specialist will be able to expertly insert the injections, thereby reducing the bruising and other related side-effects. Thus one must get Liquid Facelift done by knowledgeable and skilled professionals.
Before going in for Liquid Facelift, one should discuss past medical illnesses and allergies with the specialist to avoid any unexpected side-effects. For example, if one is on blood thinners, then there is an increased risk of bruising. Therefore, a client is encouraged to tell the doctor all medications and supplements that one has been taking or is taking, even if it is a simple multi-vitamin pill.
What to expect after a Liquid Facelift procedure?
One need not take an off from regular activities like work – either for the session or even after the appointment as it has no downtime and needs little recovery time.
The experienced doctors at Clinic Dermatech always give simple after-care instructions which may include the application of ice on the face to subside the swelling and bruising effects. One should avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to sun rays for a few days.
Some people prefer to get Liquid Facelift done on a Friday so that any bruising or swelling can subside over the weekend.
How much will a Liquid Facelift cost?
Liquid Facelifts are more affordable than surgical facelifts. The actual costing will depend on various factors like the number of areas or sites, the type of injectables chosen, the price per unit as per brand, and the number of injections that one needs.
At Clinic Dermatech, we offer the best packages for Liquid Facelift with honest pricing and complete transparency.
