What is it?
One of our most popular procedures for our clients over 30 years of age and it is suitable for any skin type. With each passing year, our bodies slowly age. Perhaps some of the earliest and most noticeable signs of our age are the changes that occur to our skin. Until individuals reach their mid-twenties the skin remains relatively youthful, showing little signs of change.
However, as we enter our thirties fine lines start to creep in around our eyes, and as we progress into our thirties, forties, fifties, and beyond, we are reminded of skin damage from years past with the development of a rough skin texture, age spots, deeper wrinkles, and sagging skin. In addition, with the fast past of our modern lives, stress does add up quickly.
A liquid face lift is a very common procedure with the scope of restoring the elasticity and firmness of our skin. It is more popular for people who are afraid to go under the knife or people who don't need a face lift but want to look refreshed, younger, with a tighten, even and rejuvenate skin.
Key Benefits of the Liquid Face Lift?
The Liquid Face Lift may be a valuable alternative to surgery, especially for skin that has only begun showing a few signs of aging. The Liquid Face Lift can help to:
- Plump up wrinkles around the lines and mouth
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and forehead
- Tighten up loose skin, especially around the jaw and cheek areas
- Improve the texture and tone of the skin for a more youthful look
- Improve pigmentation spots / patches and skin tone
- Increase natural collagen production, in addition to adding collagen to weaker parts of the face
- Providing a temporary ‘lift’ to the face as the skin becomes plumper and firmer
- Make the face look more rested and energetic
Results of the Liquid Face Lift will vary by individual and the type of dermal fillers used. Still, most people showing the common signs of aging can benefit from just one round of treatments on key areas of the face.
