A Non Surgical Face lift or “Liquid Face Lift” is rejuvenating the face using either Botox or Dysport in the upper face, (frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet) and using dermal fillers in the mid and lower face to “volumize” areas and “lift” areas over the bony prominences. Suffice it to say your addressing three different areas (upper, middle and lower face) by the Non Surgical lift. Best of all …no down time!.. a day or two of swelling perhaps to avoid a much larger surgical face lift procedure.
Fillers may be used to augment cheek bones, add volume to the cheeks, strengthen the jawline, and fill hollows under the eyes. All of these things can add up to a rejuvenated and fresher face. Filling in the naso-labial folds and marionette lines is usually the first sign somone is “aging” and why most younger patients come in for rejuvenation. One of the early signs of aging is to lose volume in the face. Many of the wrinkles and sagging skin are caused by this loss of volume.
In many ways fillers can give results superior to surgery for rejuvenating the face. If someone wants to take this Non Surgical face lift to the next level…. a nice combination would be to add an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or Photofacial if you were a younger patient with dark spots and redness to blend the complexion. If you were older with deep seated brown spots and wrinkles a Fractionated CO2 Resurfacing would be indicated for a “deeper treatment” to blend the complexion and “lift” or “tighten” the skin.
