The Liquid Facelift
Contrary to popular belief, the facelift is not a cure-all or the golden standard of facial rejuvenation. Instead, think of it as a complement to several other viable, safe, and healthy alternatives.
A facelift does not solve all of the problems of aging, nor does it create a three-dimensional, youthful effect. This can however be done by various alternative measures, such as dermal fillers and Botox. Dermal filler helps plump up the facial volume and fill deep wrinkles. Expression-related creases caused by muscle contractions can be treated with Botox. These injections, in combination with Radiesse, Sculptra, hyaluronic acids and other injectables, can address the lost fullness, expression lines, and hollowed features of your face.This are what we like to call a liquid facelift.
After an initial examination, you and Dr. Azizzadeh will draw up a treatment plan that is designed specifically for the signs of aging and your personal goals. Temporary fillers like Restylane and Juvederm, as well as longer-lasting injectables like Radiesse and Sculptra, are all candidates we may consider using. Injecting fillers at varying depths to fill creases creates a more youthful contour and appearance. Restylane and Juvederm fill lips and creases, and Radiesse and Sculptra create new curves or fill deep crevices in facelift procedures.
The best part of it all? Depending on the number of injections sites and the injectables used, treatment can take as little as 30 minutes.
