The Liquid Facelift is a facial contouring procedure that involves the use of strategically placed Botox and dermal fillers around the face. This "injectable facelift" can create a younger, plumper look and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. This "injectable facelift" has been making a noticeable impact in aesthetic medicine during the past few years. It is typically more subtle than surgery and an increasing number of individuals are trying liquid facelift procedures before traditional face lift procedures.

The role Botox plays in a Liquid Facelift: Strategically place Botox injections can address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. Multiple clinical studies have shown that a modest brow elevation occurs in the range of 1 to 3 mms which in the face can be a make a real observable difference.

The role dermal fillers play in a Liquid Facelift: In addition to sagging, often an ageing face is less about a softening jawline and more about losing volume higher up in the face viz. the temples, the eyebrow area, the anterior and lateral cheeks. When the lower parts of the face start dropping, gravity is defied by lifting and replacing the lost volume with injections of dermal fillers in the upper parts of the face. Soft tissue volumising techniques using dermal fillers reverse these atrophic changes, yielding outstanding results and all with minimal downtime.

If thirty-year-olds + opt for preventative non invasive procedures such as the Liquid Facelift , a new trend will develop resulting in a much different type of ageing than older generations The risks are far less than those of surgical approaches, and the results are impressive aesthetically. The Liquid Facelift offers a valuable space in between the minor improvement with topicals and the major expense, downtime and risk associated with surgery.

When we are younger, the brow and jaw line elevators are more prominent and the face appears constantly elevated. As we age, the dynamics change and the depressors take over and combined with gravity, a gradual sagging of our brow and jawline takes place. If we can keep the dynamics between elevators and depressors neutral with strategically placed Botox injections every 4 to 6 months, then the sagging that occurs with ageing will be reduced. Once the Botox® "kicks" in 10 days later, the face takes on a relaxed and refreshed look and one's face appears to glow.

Botox is safe and effective and has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. Botox has become the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure and has been used for more than 10 years in aesthetic practice and more than 20 years in neurology and ophthalmology. There are many publications supporting its use. It has a long and impressive safety record.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are produced by human genes inserted into a bacterium for reproduction (Juvederm™, the award winning Restalyne ™, Perlane™) It is a highly "conserved" protein, meaning that its genetic composition is almost exactly the same in 97% of animal species. This gives is an extremely low incidence of allergic reactions, hence there is no need for pre-treatment skin testing. The above mentioned fillers have been used in millions of patients for more than 10 years with a very low incidence of side effects and thus are considered very safe.

Botox and dermal fillers should be injected at a physician's office by an experienced and trained medical doctor with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the muscular anatomy of the face as well as the aesthetic implications of proper placement.

The final outcome and side effects of a Liquid Facelift procedure will be minimized by an experienced injector. At Skin Renewal thousands of patients have been treated with the Liquid Facelift with no side effects and great results.

Yes, all skin types can be safely treated with Liquid Facelift.
