FAQ - Liquid Facelifts
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure, given with a Master Injector Technique, that combines bio-stimulator to restore lost volume, give a natural cheek lift, and soften wrinkles and creases around the mouth often referred to as the “parentheses.
Does the Liquid Facelift require surgery?
Do I need general anesthesia? The liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure, and the good news is it only takes 30 minutes! Only topical anesthesia is used to numb the skin prior to injection.
How long does a Liquid Facelift last?
A facial analysis will be performed at the time of your visit to determine which filler is right for your skin and facial structure. The biostimulator chosen for the optimal, natural results can last from 12-24 months.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure consists of a few tiny injections. At Medical Aesthetics 360°, we also use 3 different forms of topical anesthesia to minimize discomfort!
What is the recovery like?
You may have very minimal swelling at the site of injection and bruising. The swelling should subside within the first 2-3 days and we use specialized techniques to minimize bruising and down time!
When will I begin to see results?
The results are immediate! After your visit to the clinic, you will leave with an instant, natural refreshed look!
How many treatments are needed?
Every face is unique: therefore, we develop a customized treatment plan just for you to correct the volume loss and achieve a fresh lift with beautiful contour.
What kind of downtime is there with a Liquid Facelift?
This is a no downtime procedure! You may come in for this lunch time procedure and be ready to return to work immediately.
Why would I choose a Liquid Facelift rather than the traditional surgical Facelift?
A Liquid Facelift is usually more affordable, gives your cheeks a better lift, and has less risk of complications compared to a surgical facelift. What most people do not calculate with a surgical facelift is the 1-2 week recovery that keeps you out of your normal activities. With a busy schedule, you may not have time to go through the recovery process of surgery. A liquid facelift is a great option for those that want an anti-aging or facial lifting procedure but are not ready for the expense, recovery time, and risks of a surgical face lift.
What are the common risks?
The risk and benefit will be discussed in details at your visit to the clinic.
Who is a good candidate for a Liquid facelift?
Anyone who has experienced a loss of collagen and elastin, usually seen after the age of 38-40. If you notice a downward turn in your cheeks or midface and want an improvement to the sagging, tired appearance, call us today to schedule a free facial analysis will determine the level of lift that is right for you!
Can I have a Liquid Facelift procedure done if I’m pregnant?
The Liquid Facelift should not be performed during pregnancy, but we look forward to seeing you after your precious little one is born!
