If you’re looking for way to give your face a youthful look without going under the knife, consider a liquid facelift in Albuquerque at AlluraDerm MD Med Spa. Traditional facelifts – cosmetic surgical procedures – may remove wrinkles, but they’re also quite invasive and require weeks of recovery time.
Liquid facelifts are non-surgical treatments that are only minimally invasive and require no downtime or recovery time. They combine multiple injectable products to address wrinkles and plump up the skin in several regions of the face. These products include Botox and various Juvederm fillers.
This cosmetic procedure is very flexible and is personalized for each individual patient. To make the most of your liquid facelift, it’s best to be as clear and honest as possible during your consultation in terms of your expectations, beauty goals, and areas of concern.
The Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift offers numerous benefits:
- Unlike a traditional facelift, a liquid facelift is non-surgical, so bruising and swelling are minimized.
- It is a fairly short and convenient procedure that can be concluded in less than an hour.
- It uses can address more types of wrinkles than any one injectable product can on its own.
- It can help in plumping the lips and restoring facial volume in hollow regions.
- Liquid facelifts make subtle changes to the appearance that makes the skin look healthier and younger.
- Liquid facelifts are much more cost-effective than their surgical counterparts.
Botox is an injectable neuromodulator used to relax contracted facial muscles, resulting in correction of fine age lines. It is ideal for use in treating crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal forehead wrinkles, vertical lines between the brows, harsh vertical neck bands, and chin wrinkles. Botox typically lasts for three to four months; after this time, patients must return for a maintenance treatment.
Juvederm Filler Options
A variety of Juvederm dermal fillers can be used in different areas of the face to create the patient’s preferred look. Each Juvederm product offers its own specific benefits.
Juvederm Voluma XC: This injectable gel restores volume to the cheeks, which become gaunt and lose their volume with age.
Juvederm Vollure XC: Vollure XC gel is injected into problem areas to address moderate and harsh wrinkles. It is especially effective on the nasolabial folds and various wrinkles around the mouth.
Juvederm Volbella XC: This lip filler is used to make the lips bigger, restore lip definition, and smooth away perioral lip lines, also called smoker’s lines.
Juvederm Ultra XC: Ultra XC is also used for lip enhancement and helps to volumize thinning lips.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC: This injectable product works on smoothing out wrinkles around the nose and mouth by adding volume to the face. These wrinkles include the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and parentheses lines.
Juvederm products are usually recommended for usage in adults age 21 and up. They are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid, which bonds with water molecules to add volume to the tissues. They can last anywhere from six months to over two years depending on the specific product chosen.
Liquid Facelift Aftercare
After a liquid facelift, you can quickly return to your everyday schedule. There is no need to take off from work. Minor swelling, bruising, or redness may be present at the injection sites, but these are only temporary and will fade shortly.
How Much Does a Liquid Facelift Cost?
The price of a liquid facelift depends on the exact combination of injectable products used. The number of treatment areas also plays a role in determining cost, as does the number of injections required.
