A Liquid Facelift in La Jolla is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that harnesses the power of dermal fillers and neurotoxins to rejuvenate and lift the face. It involves strategically injecting these injectables to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery.
In some patients, the goal of a Liquid Facelift procedure is to lift the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. LiquidLift products and procedures may be used to accomplish a number of objectives when it comes to facial contouring and lifting.
Liquid Facelift Options
The most immediate full or partial nonsurgical face lifting is accomplished with injectable products—often Voluma or Radiesse and softer fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. Under-eye areas and facial contouring can be corrected for an extended time with Restylane, a permanent filler product that does not degrade in the skin.
For patients who are willing to allow the natural growth of their collagen, a process that takes several sessions and time, we highly recommend Sculptra.
Radiesse Or Voluma For Cheek Augmentation And Lift
BOTOX Cosmetic plays a substantial role in the face “lifting” as it allows muscles to relax, alleviating frowns and furrows that tend to push down the brow. BOTOX can also reverse age-related mouth frowns where the corners of the mouth begin to turn down instead of level or up. This is a subtle change that has a profound impact.
Injectables essentially refill the deflating “balloon” that comes from age-related descent of the facial tissues and muscles. The overall lift can come from restoring height to the cheekbones, filling sunken cheek areas, filling in eye hollows, and augmenting the chin and lips. You can completely change the appearance of age, substituting it for youth and energy.
Simple extras, such as a touch of Juvederm in the philtral ridges above the center of the lip restore the “cupid’s bow” and give the lip a more youthful sex appeal, plus it helps remove the focus from tiny vertical lines above the lip.
If you were to imagine your face as a sculpture, injectables are the “clay” that the sculptor adds to bring up the cheeks, augment the lips and chin, and soften the angularity of age. Dr. Mani carefully provides enough (but not too much) correction to achieve the most natural result.
The Finishing Touch
All of us experience pigmentation irregularities with time, especially with the outdoor lifestyle we lead in southern California. Light and laser treatments can remove or blend facial dark splotches. IPL Fotofacial will have irregular skin color and balanced skin texture and tone. Fraxel or ActiveFX will improve tone and texture and remove hyperpigmented areas.
