A liquid facelift, also referred to as a stitch-less lift, was designed to restore smooth, youthful skin. The procedure is a mini-facelift without the discomfort, downtime, or expense of surgery.
Our specialists use Juvéderm® Voluma and a special technique involving medical grade cannulas to not only smooth the nasolabial folds that form from the nose down to the mouth, but to also lift the jawline. This procedure corrects the effects of gravity and addresses poor skin laxity.
Though the effects of dermal fillers are temporary, Voluma lasts exceptionally long — up to two years. This makes it a cost-effective option for restoring younger-looking skin without the need for surgical treatment methods.
At The Bliss Room, we’ve helped many patients virtually erase years off their face in a matter of minutes. Our injectors are highly experienced and trained to deliver natural-looking results that correct the signs of aging in a subtle yet noticeable way.
Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
Patients considering a liquid facelift should understand the benefits of the procedure before making a decision to move forward. Compared to other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, a liquid facelift offers the following benefits:
- Lifting sagging jowls
- Smoothing nasolabial folds
- Quickly achieving younger appearance without surgery
- Effectively smoothing and lifting the cheeks and the lower portion of the face
The liquid facelift effectively targets the signs of aging, including loss of volume, fine wrinkles and lack of contouring in the cheek and jaw areas. Treatment can also address sagging jowls, sunken areas in the cheeks, and facial lines.
What Is a Liquid Facelift Like?
Juvéderm® Voluma is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. This filler is injected deeper into the skin than regular Juvéderm®, providing support for firmer and smoother skin.
During the procedure, the specialist uses a tiny needle to administer the injections. The filler also contains lidocaine to deliver a mild numbing effect. Patients may also request a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The entire appointment typically lasts about one hour.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
Patients typically see immediate results after one procedure. However, patients should understand that some fillers require multiple treatments to see full results. To determine which fillers are best for the patient’s cosmetic goals, it’s important to schedule a consultation with an experienced specialist.
Patients may also need follow-up treatments if they want additional enhancements, or the visible effects of the filler will disappear over time.
Though the procedure doesn’t require any downtime, patients may experience minor swelling, bruising, and soreness for a few days. They can use makeup to cover any discoloration, and inflammation can be minimized with cool compresses.
Patients should avoid scheduling the procedure immediately before any upcoming events or special social gatherings, since they may experience visible side effects.
Risks And Side Effects
Risks of the procedure are low, since the liquid facelift is performed by an experienced injector. However, patients may experience bumps under the skin and allergic reactions. It’s important to discuss any medical concerns or allergies with the skin specialists beforehand to determine if a liquid facelift is ideal for their health and wellness.
