A facelift, also known as a “rhytidectomy” is a procedure that aims to tighten the facial skin to give the face a more youthful appearance. It works to control loose jawlines, sagging cheeks and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The objective of a facelift surgery is to remove the excess skin and fat, tightening the deep facial tissues and getting rid of wrinkles.
Usually, facelift surgery begins with an incision in the hairline and / or temporal region. The length and shape of the incision differs as per the patient’s needs. It also involves tightening of the underlying muscles and fascia.
But an invasive procedure like a facelift surgery is bound to have risks and complications. This is why, many people are now looking for alternative methods of correcting facial aging signs. One of the most recommended alternatives in this regard is the “Liquid Face Lift” – a special procedure designed by the experts at Cosmetic Laser Solutions MedSpa. It is a unique treatment which has combined the benefits of Botox and Derma Fillers to create a non-surgical solution for a more youthful appearance.
The non-surgical face lift comprises of lifting or tightening of the facial features using three techniques – Botox, Restylane and Radiesse. So, what makes the liquid face lift stand out when it comes to cosmetic treatments? The experts at Cosmetic Laser Solutions MedSpa list five important reasons why the liquid face lift is a much better and safer alternative than an invasive face lift surgery. They are:
1) A Liquid Facelift is a Non-invasive Procedure
One of the most important benefits of a liquid facelift is that it involves no incisions into the skin. This facelift is accomplished by using thin needles to inject fillers into the skin. Surgical incisions carry with them the risk of scarring and infections. They also need to be bandaged and healed which needs a longer downtime for the patients. Especially for those with a persistent fear of “going under the knife” – a liquid facelift offers a great choice.
2) Lesser downtime involved
A liquid facelift usually does not take more than an hour to be completed. On the other hand, a facelift surgery needs more time to complete. However, the most important benefit of a liquid facelift is the little or no downtime needed for a patient to recover after a liquid facelift procedure. A traditional surgery limits activities for the patient due to the longer healing time required.
3) Low Cost Procedure
Compared to a full blown surgery, the cost of a liquid face lift is much more affordable. A surgical facelift includes costs of operating facilities, equipment, anesthesia and a longer duration of your doctor’s time. On the other hand, a liquid face lift procedure only costs you for the derma fillers and muscle relaxers, shorter duration of the surgeon’s time and perhaps a topical anesthesia. This makes the whole treatment much more pocket-friendly.
4) Low Risk
A significant benefit of a liquid facelift is the low risk involved. As surgery is not required, the risk of bruising, excessive bleeding, infection and pain are eliminated. Secondly, as anesthesia is not needed, the risks associated with that – like cardiac and blood pressure issues are also non-existent. Other risks and complications including skin discoloration, scarring and deep vein thrombosis are all reduced when one opts for a liquid face lift rather than a face lift surgery.
5) Natural Looking Results
As the liquid facelift aims to plump or add volume to the existing skin and muscles instead of pulling or stretching the skin to reshape your face; the results are more natural looking and blend into your face with ease. Surgery may often lead to over-the-top artificial looking results that change the way you look forever.
