Liquid Facelift FAQs
Is This Safe?
All wrinkle relaxers and fillers on the market today are FDA-approved and are safe to use. It is important to discuss the differences between each product so that a precise treatment plan can be formulated to meet the patient’s specific goals.
The results following a liquid facelift can last months and years depending on the products used. Some, such as BOTOX, typically only last 3-4 months, while others last much longer. It is very common for patients to come back time and time again for repeat injections. These patients feel that the benefits and results still outweigh having a surgical procedure.
Injectable fillers and muscle relaxers are used in combination to create stunning results. Some patients may also consider skin rejuvenation with chemical peels, dermabrasion and dermaplaning to continue to add surface results. These procedures help eliminate and decrease skin irregularities such as blemishes, scars, sun damage, color pigmentation and freckles.
