A liquid facelift is a minimally invasive procedure used to reduce visible signs of aging and add volume to the face. The procedure is extremely popular because it provides excellent results with no downtime. Patients who have their procedure performed by Dr. Farole look great and feel more confident almost immediately after their procedure. If you are interested in having a liquid facelift, Dr. Farole will customize your procedure to give you as subtle or dramatic a change as you would like.
A Liquid Facelift with Dr. Farole
A liquid facelift is an ideal procedure for patients who want to improve their appearance without having to undergo traditional surgery. The first part of the liquid facelift process is a thorough initial consultation. Dr. Farole analyzes the face, talks about the patient’s goals, and comes up with a customized procedure plan. He chooses an injectable, such as Botox, and one or more facial fillers based on the patient’s desires and goals. Fillers he commonly uses include Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, and Versa.
Dr. Farole performs the procedure on an outpatient basis. First, a topical numbing cream is applied to the patient’s skin to reduce discomfort. Next, the injectable and filler medications are injected into areas of the face the patient wishes to improve. Last, ice is placed on the skin to reduce swelling. Total procedure time is usually only 30 minutes. Patients may return to work and normal activities after their procedure. Many patients find having the procedure during their lunch break very convenient. In order to maximize results, Dr. Farole may recommend a follow-up procedure at a later date.
Results can be as subtle or dramatic as the patient wants. Final results include the following:
- A reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds
- Improved facial volume
- A younger, rejuvenated appearance
Post-procedure swelling must go all the way down—usually in a few days or less – before true results are visible. Depending on the type of filler used, results usually last 1-2 years. They can be maintained by having a second procedure.
