A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure, given with a Master Injector Technique, that combines Botox and Filler to restore lost volume, give a natural cheek lift, and soften wrinkles and creases around the mouth often referred to as the “parentheses.” Botox relaxes the muscles causing the face to pull down allowing for the maximum lift of facial structures. And when it comes to your face, up is good and down is bad! At the Sherman Aesthetic Center, Dr. Sherman and her Master Injectors have perfected the Liquid Lift Technique!
Does the Liquid Facelift require surgery?
Do I need general anesthesia? The liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure, and the good news is it only takes 30 minutes! Only topical anesthesia is used to numb the skin prior to injection.
How long does a Liquid Facelift last?
A facial analysis will be performed at the time of your visit to determine which filler is right for your skin and facial structure. The filler chosen for the optimal, natural results can last from 9-18 months.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure consists of a few tiny injections. At the Sherman Aesthetic Center, the Master Injectors also use 3 different forms of topical anesthesia to minimize discomfort!
What is the recovery like?
You may have very minimal swelling at the site of injection and bruising. The swelling should subside within the first 2-3 days and we use specialized techniques to minimize bruising and down time!
When will I begin to see results?
The results are immediate! After your 30 minute office visit, you will leave with an instant, natural refreshed look!
How many treatments are needed?
Every face is unique: therefore, we develop a customized treatment plan just for you to correct the volume loss and achieve a fresh lift with beautiful contour.
What will the long-term results be like?
Filler is a naturally occurring substance that your body breaks down over time. The filler will dissipate in a subtle, gradual way. It is always best to return to the Sherman Aesthetic Center for a re-evaluation at 6-8 months after the initial injection to maintain the optimal results!
What kind of downtime is there with a Liquid Facelift?
This is a no downtime procedure! You may come in for this lunch time procedure and be ready to return to work immediately.
Why would I choose a Liquid Facelift rather than the traditional surgical Facelift?
A Liquid Facelift is usually more affordable, gives your cheeks a better lift, and has less risk of complications compared to a surgical facelift. What most people do not calculate with a surgical facelift is the 1-2 week recovery that keeps you out of your normal activities. With a busy schedule, you may not have time to go through the recovery process of surgery. A liquid facelift is a great option for those that want an anti-aging or facial lifting procedure but are not ready for the expense, recovery time, and risks of a surgical face lift.
What are the common risks?
The most common risks are bruising and swelling. Some patients do report minimal soreness at the site of injection.
Who is a good candidate for a Liquid facelift?
Anyone who has experienced a loss of collagen and elastin, usually seen after the age of 38-40. If you notice a downward turn in your cheeks or midface and want an improvement to the sagging, tired appearance, call us today to schedule a free facial analysis will determine the level of lift that is right for you!
Can I have a Liquid Facelift procedure done if I’m pregnant?
The Liquid Facelift should not be performed during pregnancy, but we look forward to seeing you after your precious little one is born!
