A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that can help to reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. It is an increasingly popular option for those who want to look younger without the downtime associated with more invasive procedures. But who is a good candidate for a liquid facelift? This blog post will explore the criteria for being an ideal candidate for this type of procedure.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers and other injectables to improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. At Contour, we only use the best products for our clients. This is why we provide a combination of hyaluronic acid fillers to add volume, where it tends to fade in certain areas as we age, such as the cheeks, chin, and jaw. For optimal results, we will also use biostimulatory fillers such as Radiesse in the dermal plane. This process will stimulate collagen and elastin production, effectively tightening the skin. In addition, some patients opt for additional procedures such as Virtue RF to tighten the skin further. These treatments work together beautifully and can gracefully turn back the clock for your skin and reduce the signs of aging. The immediate results can last up to two years with proper maintenance.
Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift offers many benefits over invasive surgery or laser treatments. It requires almost no downtime, so that you can resume your normal activities quickly after the procedure. It also offers natural-looking results that are not overly dramatic or artificial-looking. And because it uses injectables rather than surgery, it carries fewer risks than more invasive procedures.
Ideal Candidates for a Liquid Facelift
The ideal candidate for a liquid facelift should have realistic expectations about the results they can achieve with this type of procedure. They should also be in good overall health and have healthy skin that is not overly sensitive or prone to injectable reactions. Those looking for subtle improvements in appearance rather than dramatic changes may be better suited for this type of treatment than those seeking more dramatic results.
Risks & Considerations
As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with a liquid facelift that should be discussed with your doctor before proceeding with treatment. These include potential side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site. It’s important to discuss any concerns you may have about these risks with one of our aesthetic professionals at Contour Aesthetics + Wellness before proceeding with treatment so you can make an informed decision about whether this type of treatment is right for you.
