Liquid facelift offers patients a nonsurgical solution to aging concerns
Liquid facelift can help Charlotte, NC patients fight signs of aging on their face. This procedure fights signs of aging nonsurgically which is often a draw for patients not yet ready to commit to paying for a full surgery. Many times people may elect to have a liquid facelift if they are looking to fight signs of aging and have fast results.
Patients choose this option for different reasons
As people age, they may become concerned with new wrinkles that pop up or feel their lips are beginning to thin, but don’t want to undergo massive surgery. A liquid facelift offers a way for these patients to treat the areas they see as problems, without committing to surgery. It is also ideal for patients who only have minimal signs of aging and want to stave off the need for a surgical facelift.
Liquid facelift offers injections to combat signs of aging
As the name implies, liquid facelifts use liquids to help fight signs of aging in patients. Using various types of fillers, doctors will inject the serum into the face, lips, and sometimes neck to help improve the contours of the face. These fillers can be used to smooth wrinkles, plump lips that are thinning, and can even treat scars on the face as well.
This non-invasive option often does not last forever though. Patients should anticipate results lasting only one to two years, meaning additional liquid facelift will be needed. Another thing for patients to consider is that some wrinkles may require repeat injections. Deep wrinkles, for example, may require two or three sessions for results to be seen.
Recovery time is minimal compared to surgical options
One benefit of a liquid facelift is the fast recovery time compared to its surgical counterpart. Most patients see results very quickly but will experience bruising and swelling for a three to five days afterward. Patients should avoid exercise for a few hours after surgery, and should not work out hard for a few days. Doctors may recommend patients use ice to help with the swelling.
Insurance will not help cover the cost
Since liquid facelift is usually an elective, cosmetic procedure, patients should anticipate paying for the procedure out of pocket. This nonsurgical facelift usually is priced by the syringe and can cost a few thousand dollars on average. Be sure to ask your doctor how much your procedure will be following your consultation.
