what is a liquid lift?
Fillers are a wonderful treatment option to correct wrinkles around the mouth, loose or sagging skin, hollows in your cheeks or under your eyes or if you would like fuller more defined lips. Fillers, often thought of as plumping, are more naturally used to plump, smooth, then hydrate.
Dr. Sonny O’s Liquid Lift is a lifting, plumping, filling, smoothing and re-contouring of the face with a combination of various injectable dermal fillers and neurotoxins (BOTOX® and Dysport®). Liquid Lifts are ideal for the patients that do not need a surgical facelift, are looking for a soft refreshed look, or where surgery isn't an option. Skin elasticity is a key factor in determining this and during your custom consultation, Dr. Sonny O will determine which treatment plan will help you get your desired look.
HOW DOES A LIQUID LIFT COMBAT FACIAL AGING?
There are many things that contribute to an aging face including lines, wrinkles, discoloration and sagging skin; loss of fullness; decreased production of collagen; and loss of muscle.
With aging, people lose fat in their faces. In our mid 20s, we begin to stop producing collagen. Collagen plays a major role in the strength of skin and its decreased production leads to sagging. Loss of muscle occurs with age and affects the facial contour. The Liquid Lift does the following:
FACIAL RECONTOURING: The dermal fillers used in our office for facial re-contouring are hydroxyl apatite and hyaluronic acid.
MID CHEEK AREA LIFT: The mid cheek area can be augmented with fillers to create volume, enhance a youthful face, and reduce nasal labial fold lines.
JOWL AREA LIFT: A third area treated in this lift is the pre-jowl sulcus. These are the vertical lines that are on either side of the mouth. They connect the edges of the mouth to the jaw. These are also known as Marionette lines.
LIP FILLER and HYDRATOR
WRINKLE REDUCTION with Injectables: Botox™ and Dysport enhance the liquid face lift by filling in expression lines. With less muscle contraction after Botox and Dysport the filler used for your liquid face lift should last longer.
These new filler techniques enable experienced plastic surgeons to lift the cheek and drooping areas around the mouth. Results are very exciting when the technique is properly applied. Because we are injecting liquid or semi solid fillers we call this technique the Liquid Face Lift. To achieve these results, often a few different fillers are used in each procedure.
