Facelift Alternatives

The “liquid facelift” is gaining popularity among celebrities and patients across the nation. Through injectable fillers, both men and women can enjoy a more youthful appearance with no downtime, no anesthesia, and no surgery whatsoever. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and even improve the appearance of deep scars.

About Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers involve a series of tiny injections beneath the surface of your facial skin. Because the procedure is not invasive, it often takes only ten minutes to complete and requires no downtime for recovery. Some patients even get their facial filler injections on their weekday lunch break.

Injectables can achieve everything from filling in skin folds and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles to restoring volume and re-contouring the shape of your facial features. The results often last between several months to a year. Many patients feel injectable fillers are a more cost-efficient and safer alternative to facelift surgery.

Injectable Fillers Can Enhance a Facelift

facelift is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate sagging skin to restore a youthful appearance but is not designed to treat wrinkles. For this reason, some patients opt for both facelift surgery and injectable fillers to totally transform their appearance.
