Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses cosmetic injectables to minimize noticeable signs of aging. Most liquid facelifts involve a combination of products like BOTOX, Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane and Sculptra. If you are concerned about wrinkles, loss of facial volume and other signs of aging, yet you are hesitant to commit to surgery, liquid facelift with New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Erwin Bulan may be a great option for you.
One question Dr. Bulan is frequently asked about liquid facelift is how long the results usually last. Here, he addresses the answer.
Results Are Temporary
Liquid facelift noticeably rejuvenates the face — but only temporarily. Exactly how long the results last depends on several factors, including the specific products used, where they are placed, the severity of the wrinkles (or volume loss), the technique of the injector and how quickly the body metabolizes the products. Everyone tolerates these injectable products a little differently.
Most liquid facelift results last one to two years. A liquid facelift using Sculptra can last up to two years, as the product actually stimulates the body’s production of collagen for longer-lasting rejuvenating effects.
Prolong the Results of Your Liquid Facelift
Though you cannot control exactly how your body breaks down the Botox and fillers used in your liquid facelift, there are a few things you can do to prolong the life of your liquid facelift:
- Stay out of the sun
- Avoid smoking and using other nicotine products
- Inquire about medical-grade skin care or complementary treatments with your skin care team
Touch-up treatments can also prolong the results of your liquid facelift. As you discuss your liquid facelift options with your plastic surgeon or skin care professional, inquire about returning for regular touch-ups. Over time, regular touch-ups can help you enjoy the anti-aging effects of your liquid facelift with less product and less frequent treatments.
