Liquid Facelift in O'Fallon, Missouri (MO)

To get a facelift, you no longer have to go under the knife. The liquid facelift is a technique that uses a variety of dermal fillers and injectables to plump areas that have lost volume due to aging. It also tightens and firms the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. 

After discussing your goals with your plastic surgeon, and after he has performed an examination of the treatment area, he will determine which fillers and injectables to use. As it relates to the procedure itself, the treatment areas are numbed with either a topical or local anesthetic. For deeper dermal fillers, you will receive a nerve block to control pain. Once numbed, your specialist will use a series of needles to inject each individual treatment area with the product designed to treat that area. Most injections only take a few seconds, with the entire procedure taking less than an hour. 

Other than some discomfort, patients should expect swelling, bruising and redness. Swelling can be minimized by applying ice packs to the area and pain can be managed with over-the-counter medications that your specialist deems fit for you. There are also times where small lumps will develop at or near the injection site. Speak to your specialist about how to gentlly massage lumpy areas. 

A liquid facelift can:
  • Fill hollows
  • Reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lift and firm skin
The areas it improves are:
  • Chin
  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Under eye bags and hollows
  • Frown lines on the forehead
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Crow’s feet
Following treatment, your specialist will devise a skin care regimen you can use to prolong the results. Results are seen immediately after the procedure, and they will continue to improve as the fillers and injectables take effect and the swelling resolves. 

Because fillers and injectables break down over time and disperse, how long your results last will vary and largely depend on the substances used. That said, results could be maintained for six months to more than a year. To prolong results, touchups are recommended.
