How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?
The components of a liquid facelift last for different periods. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last between six and twelve months, but more new innovations have them lasting an average of one year to a year and a half.
Botox® and similar products last three to four months. You can schedule maintenance treatments to keep your results looking refreshed and youthful. Since appointments for injectables like dermal fillers and Botox® only take a few minutes, you can fit an appointment into even the busiest schedule to keep yourself looking smooth and rejuvenated.
What Results to Expect From a Liquid Facelift
You can expect to see an immediate increase in volume after injecting dermal fillers. Common areas for these fillers during a liquid facelift include the cheeks, lips, and under the eyes. Dermal fillers also lift and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® will relax and smooth away lines and wrinkles that form from repeated muscle movements, such as frown and smile lines. In the hands of a nurse injector, you will achieve a natural-looking lift and a healthy, youthful, re-energized appearance.
Is There Any Downtime With a Liquid Facelift?
For the most part, you will not have downtime after a liquid facelift. You may have some minor soreness or swelling that can last a day or two, or bruising that will resolve within a week or two. You can return to regular activities right away.
Good Candidates For a Liquid Facelift
If facial volume loss has combined with lines and wrinkles to make you look older than you feel, you may be a good candidate for a liquid facelift. Both dermal fillers and Botox® are safe and minimally invasive.
