Patients undergo cosmetic procedures to help fight signs of aging
Liquid lift is one cosmetic procedure Charlotte, NC patients can undergo to help fight signs of aging. As people age lines and wrinkles may begin to appear, jowls can develop, and lips can start to thin out. These changes can leave people feeling self conscious about their appearance and leave them looking for ways to restore the skin on their face that doesn’t cost a lot but gives good results. Liquid lifts may fit the bill for some of these people.
Liquid lift involves the physician injecting fillers into different areas of the face
A liquid lift procedure is a nonsurgical option for patients who aren’t ready to commit to a surgical facelift, may not need enough work to warrant the surgical option, or want something that will stave off the need for surgery so they can save and plan. The procedure can treat a variety of issues such as fine lines like crows feet, wrinkles in the forehead and other areas of the face, plump up lips, and help remove jowls and make cheeks look more prominent.
To help patients look their best, the doctor will first examine your face and skin and discuss your goals for the procedure. They will then plan what fillers they will use and where they will use them to give you the best results. The doctor can inject the facial and dermal fillers in the office, so the patient doesn’t need to go under anesthesia.
Results and recovery are quick for this type of procedure
One factor many people like about liquid lift is that it patients see the results quickly and have a fast recovery time. A surgical facelift can require patients to take weeks off work to recover and will often wait a while before they see any results. With a liquid lift, however, patients can start to see their results immediately following the injection. There is swelling and bruising around the injection site at first, but as that fades patients will begin to see an improved version of their results. Patients can also return to work and activities immediately after their procedure if they wish. The only restriction most people have is that they not work out for about 24 hours after the injections.
Cost of liquid lift varies
Since insurance will not cover a liquid lift, most patients worry about the cost. One reason a liquid lift may be an attractive option to people is that it is less than a surgical facelift. However, that doesn’t mean the procedure is cheap. It can run people anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. Patients should also plan to have repeat injections if they want to maintain results as they last six months to a few years rather than much longer for surgical facelifts.
