A liquid facelift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting fillers and cosmetic neurotoxins into various areas of the face to lift sagging skin, smooth out wrinkles, and restore volume to hollowed out areas. The fillers used in this procedure are hyaluronic acid-based and provide temporary results that can last anywhere from several months to a year. The cosmetic neurotoxins commonly used are Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau. The results are temporary lasting anywhere from 8-12 weeks.
The procedure is called a "liquid facelift" because it aims to achieve similar results to a traditional facelift, but without the need for incisions, general anesthesia, or a long recovery period. Instead, the fillers are injected into specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jawline, temples, or under-eye area, to add volume, lift sagging skin, and smooth out wrinkles.
It's important to note that a liquid facelift is not a substitute for a traditional facelift, and the results achieved will not be as long-lasting or as dramatic. However, it can be a good option for people who are not ready for surgery or who only have mild to moderate signs of aging and want a more youthful appearance.
