Is A Liquid Facelift Right For Me?
What is a liquid facelift?*
A liquid facelift is an in-office procedure that uses an injectable filler, such as Juvederm®, Radiesse® or Restylane®, to rejuvenate and restore volume to the face.
Who can benefit from a liquid facelift?*
If your cheeks look ‘deflated’ or flat, or if you’ve lost volume from the middle of your face, you may be the perfect candidate for a liquid facelift. Restoring volume to the cheeks and midface can help you regain your youthful shape or contour. Improving the shape of the face can rejuvenate your appearance; that’s why this procedure is called a “liquid facelift”.
However, if there is looseness of the lower face or if you have moderate to significant loose skin on your neck, you should probably keep reading about alternatives to a liquid facelift.
What’s the recovery from a liquid facelift?*
There is little to no downtime from a liquid facelift and you’ll be able to resume normal activities right away. You may experience some swelling or bruising. Make-up can be applied immediately after your visit.
What’s the cost of a liquid facelift?*
Depending on the type and amount of filler used, a liquid facelift could cost anywhere from $2800-$3500. Typically, anywhere from 4-6 syringes of filler are used in order to achieve the desired result.
How long will a liquid facelift last?*
Juvederm®, Radiesse® and Restylane® are FDA-approved to last from 6-12 months, although duration and visible results may vary.
What are the alternatives to a liquid facelift?*
If you have moderate to significant loose skin in the cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck, you may benefit from a mini-lifting procedure like Dr. To’s LA Lift®. The LA Lift® is a facelift that’s performed here in our office under Local Anesthesia. The results are beautiful and natural-looking.
What’s the cost of the LA Lift®?*
The LA Lift® can range anywhere from $7900 and up, depending on what needs to be done and the combination of treatments you desire.
How long will an LA Lift® last?*
You’ll still continue to age after the LA Lift®, just as you will after any facial procedure. However, because it’s a true facelift, the results will last many years. You’ll find that you can extend your results with good sun protection habits, proper diet and exercise, and regular follow-ups with Dr. To.
