Question: What Are The Pros and Cons of a Liquid Facelift?
Answer: Liquid Facelift depends upon your face.
The “Liquid Facelift”, is a grouping of injectable products that lift, sculpt, smooth and contour the face. Those individuals who have lost facial volume, consisting of fat, muscle and bone mass in the mid-face have remarkable and natural looking refreshed appearances after the “Liquid Facelift”.
The final results are dependent upon the products used and the artistry of the injector. Those individuals who have a lax neck and jaw tissues will benefit minimally from facial fillers. They will require a facelift to lift, smooth and tighten the hanging skin and muscle and often will eventually require additional volume replacement with fillers.
When fillers such as Radiesse, Voluma & Juvederm are combined with Botox, for the upper face, the results are even more dramatic. Once again, Botox should be placed in such a manner as to relax the overly active forehead muscles to yield a natural appearance. Botox will produce a smoother upper face; however, leaving animation and some motion to the forehead muscles is optimal.
There are very few complications or cons when Radiesse, Juvederm, Voluma and Botox are used with an artistic hand and plastic surgeon’s eye.
