Today, more and more people are electing to have non-surgical procedures over surgical treatments to camouflage the effects of ageing . The advantage of a non-surgical procedure is less downtime, rapid results and of course no surgery associated side effects. No need for any tell tale scars, or time away from work. All these make liquid face lifts very popular indeed.
What is a Liquid Face lift?
A Liquid Face lift uses a combination of Fillers and neuromodulators like Botox to achieve the appearance of a more youthful face. As the process of normal ageing is associated with loss of volume in the various compartments of the face which lead to a more hollowed out look, the filler replaces the lost volume with little or no side effects.
How long do the results last?
Results usually last from one year to eighteen months depending on the product used. The results can be easily maintained with regular touch ups and corrections.
Should I have a surgical Face lift instead?
If your skin has significant laxity, your doctor might recommend a Surgical Face lift instead. Do consult your dermatologist who would advise you on the various treatment options.
I do not want any injections, are there any other options?
Radiofrequency skin tightening offers a safe treatment alternative to patients who do not wish for injectables. However, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results. Do discuss all your treatment options with Dr. Rasya Dixit today.
