When you combine wrinkle relaxers and wrinkle filler injections within the same appointment, we call this anti-aging strategy the "Liquid Facelift." Some men and women have both facial wrinkles and less than desirable sunken in areas of the face. At Dallas Medical Skin Solutions, we can implement wrinkle fillers like Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Sculptra®, Restylane®, Voluma® or Volbella® into your cheeks, under the eyes, and into the lips and nasolabial folds for a fuller, younger appearance. To relax the facial muscles, we can include injections of relaxers like BOTOX® and Dyport® to eliminate wrinkles in other areas as needed, such as the laugh lines, on the forehead, between-the-brows, and crow’s feet. Our experience Nurse Injectors, can combine fillers and relaxers to provide their patients with restorative injections to avoid or prolong having a more invasive plastic surgery.
Are You A Candidate?
Some injectable dermal fillers and relaxers on the market are made for men and women above a certain age. During your consultation, our plastic surgeon will analyze your skin and facial features to determine which products are the best to use. Many candidates for the liquid facelift request these injections as an alternative to plastic surgery. This noninvasive treatment may not be suitable for people with extreme allergies or using certain medications, which is why we have to perform an exam and complete a thorough medical history beforehand.
During your injections
We will do our best to make your injections as comfortable as possible in our plastic surgery office. After cleansing the face, the injection administrator will mark the injection sites with a washable marker. Some patients request an anesthetic to numb certain areas of the face. With an ultra-fine syringe, the different medications will be implemented in the appropriate areas of the skin. As these treatments are not permanent, it is necessary to maintain your results with follow-up injections at the appropriate time.
Liquid Facelift Recovery
With some redness and slight swelling, there really should not be much of a recovery time for these life-changing injectables. Depending on the medications used, the results following a liquid facelift can last months and even years. After your brief recovery period, you can see many benefits, such as:
- Volume added to the natural shape of trodden temples or deflated cheeks as a result of aging
- Decreased wrinkles, creases, fine lines, and/or nasolabial folds
- Improved contours and curves of the face
- Changed shape and size of irregularities in the nose and lips
- Reduced or eliminated under eye bags and dark circles
- Lifted droopy eyelids, diminished appearance of jowls, and/or improvement to the corners of your mouth
