The Liquid Facelift is one of the hottest non-surgical beauty procedures out there. Recent scientific advancements in injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers are allowing plastic surgeons to do amazing things that were previously only possible by getting an actual facelift.
Many celebrities have posted the before-and-after results of their liquid facelift on their social media accounts which has only increased demand for this amazing procedure. Liquid facelifts are unique in that each one is a proprietary formulation known only to the plastic surgeon who created it.
Dr. Capone will use his expert knowledge of injectables to create a customized mixture precisely designed to address your facial goals. He can provide you with a gentle lift of individual facial features, minimization of wrinkles, creases and folds, as well as a restoration of your natural, youthful facial contours.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
Just 20 short years ago, when someone wanted to get rid of facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and have it look completely natural, they had to opt for a surgical facelift. Nowadays it’s possible to achieve the same results for a fraction of the cost and zero downtime.
A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting a proprietary mixture of advanced dermal fillers such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. This combination will lift and contour your facial features so that you’ll achieve a facial rejuvenation without having to undergo a surgical procedure.
The new generation of fillers and Botox have been fine-tuned and vastly improved since they originally appeared on the market. The results you’ll get will last longer than they ever did before – thereby increasing the time you can enjoy your new youthful looking face!
Why Get a Liquid Facelift?
Non-surgical treatments such as a liquid facelift can prolong the time before someone would have to get a facelift to see the aesthetic results that they desire. In some cases, it can push back a surgery date 10 to 15 years or more. As the years progress, dermal fillers and Botox formulations are only getting better and better.
Another benefit of a liquid facelift is there is no downtime. If you were to get a surgical facelift, you could expect several weeks to several months of downtime, including a somewhat painful recovery (as with any surgery). With a liquid facelift, once the procedure is over, you can walk out of the office and return to your regular daily routine.
Cost is another factor for people who choose to get a liquid facelift. An actual surgical facelift can cost anywhere from $5k to $15k, depending on how much work is needed to be done. A liquid facelift will cost a mere fraction of that.
What Does it Entail?
Before the surgeon starts injecting your face, you’ll need to sit down with him and tell him your goals. He will let you know the results you can reasonably expect from a non-surgical procedure. Once you give the go-ahead, he’ll use his expert knowledge of fillers and Botox to create a custom formula for your face only. It will lift or contour any number of facial features that you would like corrected.
During the actual procedure, your face will be cleaned by the surgeon’s assistant, and he will begin injecting it with a very fine sterile needle. Each person will require a different amount of fillers and Botox, and this will be based on their desired goals.
While the length of each procedure will vary from person to person, it usually takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
When the needle is injected into your face, you might feel a little prick. Most people have likened the needle prick to being gently pinched in the face. Enough to take notice, but not enough to hurt. Each person has a different tolerance for pain and if you’re very sensitive, ask the surgeon for available pain options.
How Much Does a Liquid Facelift Cost?
It’s impossible to determine how much it will cost until you have a consultation with the surgeon and let him know what exactly you’re looking to accomplish. Fillers and Botox are charged by the vial – and the surgeon will have to use different amounts based upon your goals.
A liquid facelift can sometimes cost less than Botox itself in the long run. Due to the unique combination of fillers and injectables, the results can last a lot longer than an injection of Botox would. In some cases, a liquid facelift can last upwards of one year, whereas Botox by itself will wear off in just a few months.
