Introduction to Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift is a combination of different treatments tailored to your needs including wrinkle reduction injections (Botox ®), hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, a tailored skincare programme, skin peels, non-surgical skin tightening by Thermage and laser skin treatments. A non-surgical (liquid) facelift is the perfect option for those who aren’t ready for surgery.
Who is suitable?
Many of our liquid facelift patients come to us as they are unhappy with the effects of ageing on their skin. Many choose this procedure as it is a safer and cheaper option than a surgical facelift.
The procedure and risks
A liquid facelift consists of a variety of treatments tailored to your needs. The treatments can include:
- Wrinkle reduction injections (Botox®) – for treatment of wrinkles that appear when moving the face.
- Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers – used either to replace lost volume due to ageing, fill out deep lines or wrinkles, or to improve individual facial features (e.g. lip enhancement).
- Tailored skincare programmes – these can include superficial AHA or glycolic skin peels, along with medium depth chemical peels and a full range of bespoke skincare treatments to treat all types of skin.
- Non-surgical skin tightening (Thermage) – to tighten loose skin and stimulate the production of more collagen for a firmer, smoother skin texture.
- Laser skin treatments – These can include laser pigmentation removal, laser broken vein/thread vein treatments and laser skin resurfacing.
Your surgeon will assess the best combination of treatments for your skin type and condition at the consultation stage.
Risks depend on your final treatment course and your surgeon will outline them prior to your treatments.
When will I see results?
This depends on your individual treatment course, results can appear either immediately (fillers), after a few days (Botox), a few weeks (skincare programmes) or even after a few months (Thermage).
When can I go back to work?
Most patients can resume work straight after their treatment.
When can I wear make up?
This depends on your individual treatment and your surgeon will be happy to discuss this with you.
