What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift involves injecting dermal fillers into the skin to plump up the skin. It differs from a surgical facelift in that it doesn’t involve cutting into the skin.
The goal of a liquid facelift is to reduce sagging and wrinkles. It can also:
- Plump up lips
- Reduce the hollow areas under your eyes
- Fill your cheeks if they look gaunt
- Tighten wrinkles around your lips, eyes, and forehead
- Reduce the appearance of scars
The ideal candidate for a liquid facelift is someone with relatively few wrinkles and a small amount of sagging. If you have a lot of sagging skin, or if you want dramatic results, a surgical facelift might be better for you.
How does a liquid facelift work?
The connective tissues in your skin — such as collagen and elastin — break down as you age. You might also lose fat in your face, which can lead to your face looking gaunt. Many people feel that this makes them look older, and they look for a procedure that will “reverse” this effect.
Fillers work by literally filling up space in the layers of the skin. This plumps it up to reduce the appearance of wrinkled and sagging skin.
How to compare liquid facelift vs. traditional (surgical) facelift?
Many people choose a liquid facelift over a surgical facelift because it:
- will produce more natural-looking and subtle changes
- is a quicker procedure with minimal recovery
- is less painful
- involves less bruising
- is less expensive
When will I notice the result and how long it will last?
The results should be immediate. Depending on the kind of filler used, the results last anywhere between 6 and 24 months. After this point, you might need to get more fillers to maintain your appearance.
Depends on the amount of products consumed for face lift, starting from AED 1650.
