A 'Liquid Lift' procedure involves administering both wrinkle injections ¬– to smooth deep and fine lines – and fillers to lift and improve the texture of the skin, giving it a more supple and younger look, and feel. Over time, as the skin looses collagen and hyaluronic acid, the face begins to droop and loose definition. By using a tandem of muscle-relaxing injections to relax the facial muscles and soft-tissue fillers to restore lost volume, we can rejuvenate the entire face for a beautifully refreshed look. Lip augmentation may also be added to give a more extensive facial rejuvenation.
There are no special preparations beforehand, but it's usually better to avoid aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication for a few days before the treatment in order to reduce the chance of bruising. Discomfort is minimal; a topical anesthetic may be applied prior to the procedure to make the process more comfortable. After the wrinkle relaxing injection, the filler is injected into the skin to instantly plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Consultation with your dermatologist defines what to improve, how much to correct and how it will all work together to make you look better—without the risks of surgery.
