Liquid Facelift Maintenance: A Handy Calendar
Unwanted wrinkles accumulate as we age on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the nose, mouth, and the chin. Although a traditional facelift can dramatically improve your appearance and remove years from your face, it comes with the risks and recovery associated with surgery. For many women who want to look their best but aren’t ready or able to have surgery, minimally-invasive alternatives are very appealing.
A liquid facelift uses the advanced technologies of injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers to resolve facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. It improves skin texture and facial contours, delivering youthful, radiant facial beauty. Now that we’re heading into the spring and summer, with special events like graduations and weddings on the calendar, a liquid facelift is a quick procedure that can help you look your best—especially when cameras abound.
Liquid Facelift Defined
In the place of incisions and sutures, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lisa Donofrio employs injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers to remove and prevent wrinkles, add youthful facial volume, and smooth over blemishes. She uses various products, including BOTOX®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and Restylane®. These specialized liquids and gels offer different corrections that can be used as standalone procedures or combined with one another.
For instance, BOTOX® injections are best for the forehead, brows, and around the eyes. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® each offers a family of fillers for different parts of the face. Restoring cheek volume, defining the jawline, and eliminating that double chin is all possible with Dr. Donfrio’s assortment of injectable solutions.
Weight Variations and the Liquid Facelift
Weight fluctuations may reduce the results of your liquid facelift treatment. Gaining weight and losing it again will cause the skin to stretch and contract, affecting skin pliability and its ability to fit tightly over facial tissue.
To maintain optimal results, we recommend you adopt a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise. Also, hydrating daily provides the skin the proper moisture for optimal skin health. A diet rich in minerals, vitamins, and nutrients and a correct balance of fibers, fats, and proteins will help you age gracefully, with radiant skin.
During your consultation, it may be wise to ask about an anti-aging treatment regimen that will schedule periodic injections to maintain your youthful beauty. This process may include treatments at prescribed intervals to ensure you look your best. Dr. Donfrio can explain how to combine a liquid facelift with other aesthetic treatments like our skin rejuvenation, facial treatments, and body contouring procedures. Creating a calendar of your liquid facelift sessions in advance will ensure the best results for years to come.
