Liquid Facelift is an exciting new alternative to the traditional, invasive, painful and often dangerous facelift surgery. It is a great and effective way to restore youthful appearance without all of the possible complications associated with surgery. It is safe and requires very little recovery or downtime, and is nearly pain-free.
The non-surgical (liquid) facelift uses a combination of the Botox and Juvederm injectable filler. This powerful combination effectively diminishes creases, folds and wrinkles and smooths facial contour.
The result is a significant tightening, rejuvenation and softening of your skin. Years of fatigue, ageing and environmental stress are erased without a scalpel, significant risks and downtime. There is no need for general anesthesia as the topical numbing creams will greatly reduce or eliminate discomfort of the injections. And even more importantly, our patients are able to control the outcome by looking in a handheld mirror and providing feedback to the doctor ensuring that you are satisfied with your final outcome.
At first the Botox Cosmetic injections are used to smooth out wrinkles and lines, caused by muscle contractions. It is used to eliminate wrinkles around eyes (crow feet), forehead (glabella) and lips. The Juvederm then fill in deep depressions and folds.
Juvederm can be used to reshape the lips, lift corners of the mouth, fill nasolabial folds, eliminate dark circles and tear-trough deformities under the eyes. Together, these procedures work great to smooth out and tighten your entire face.
In addition a significant lift can be achieved by enhancing the cheekbones and filling the drooping skin around the jowl and chin.
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes. It is almost painless as a topical anesthetic is applied. You may have mild redness, swelling and light bruising, which disappears within a few hours to several days, depending on type of your skin.
During your free initial consultation and evaluation, Doctors at Trifecta Med Spa will carefully listen to your concerns and wishes to ensure that you achieve desired results.
How safe is the non-surgical facelift as compared to the traditional one?
-Any surgical procedure poses the risk of infection, scaring and anesthesia complications. In some cases additional surgery or other medical treatments are necessary to treat complications of the initial procedure. Recovery time with traditional surgery is one to two months and pain medications are often required. With non-surgical (liquid) face lift you may have minor bruising, swelling or redness which disappears within a few days and you are able to return to your normal daily activities with almost no downtime. No pain killers are needed.
What is the difference in the end result?
-The result of a surgical facelift lasts for many years to come. It is frequently too dramatic and you no longer look like yourself. Surgical alterations are permanent and are impossible to reverse.
Non-surgical (liquid) facelift will last one to two years and it will increase with regular touchups. While the results are powerful and effective, they do not drastically change your natural look. You will look rejuvenated but not artificially so. And also because you are able to control the procedure, the chances that you will be happy with end result are much higher than with traditional surgery.
How about the price difference?
-A traditional surgical facelift costs $5,000 to $8,000. With complications the expense is much higher. Non-surgical (liquid)face lift starts from only $800. Depending on your unique needs the cost is determined during your initial free consultation.
