Facelift VS Liquid Facelift: Which is Right for Me?

Many people want to see the lifting, wrinkle-reducing, skin-tightening effects of a facelift without the surgery and recovery time. While a liquid facelift cannot duplicate the results of surgery, it can provide changes in lift, volume, and wrinkles. A liquid facelift uses a combination of dermal fillers and neurotoxins like Botox® to reduce lines and wrinkles, add fullness and volume to sagging areas, and increase facial contouring.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure where small incisions are made behind the ears or hidden in the hairline. The surgeon then lifts and rearranges the skin and underlying structures to return them to their more youthful, lifted position. They will also remove excess skin, leaving the face tighter and firmer with fewer lines and wrinkles. This procedure takes several weeks to recover from and seeing full results can take several months. 

What is a Liquid Facelift?

This process uses a combination of injectables like dermal fillers and neurotoxins to achieve a lifted, firmer face with decreased wrinkles. Your injection specialist will use each product to enhance a particular area of your face, whether it’s a neurotoxin to relax facial muscles or a dermal filler to improve the volume and contour of the cheeks. Liquid facelifts have the benefit of being completely customizable. 

Facelift Vs Liquid Facelift

Whether you choose a facelift or liquid facelift depends on the results you want to achieve and whether you feel prepared for surgery, and the resulting recovery time. For many people who do not feel ready for surgery yet, a liquid facelift can give a noticeable firmness, smoothness, and lift. 

However, surgical results will look more dramatic and last for years instead of months. In addition, surgery can remove excess loose skin, which a liquid facelift cannot treat. A surgical facelift may work better for you for intensive signs of aging, including significant sagging and loose skin.

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

The components of a liquid facelift usually last a few months to a year. Neurotoxins typically last about three to four months, while dermal fillers can last skin months to a year or longer. A facelift will last for many years, although eventually, the ongoing effects of aging will continue to act on the face. 

Recovery and Results from a Facelift and Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift requires no downtime, although you may see a small amount of bruising or experience some minor soreness in the areas of the injections. A surgical facelift will cause more obvious bruising and swelling and much more discomfort, and you may need to wait up to six months or even longer for the swelling to subside entirely. 

Am I a Candidate for a Facelift or Liquid Facelift?

Most people can receive a liquid facelift since the process requires no surgery or invasive procedures. Candidates for a surgical facelift should be in good health, nonsmokers, and prepared to wait several months to enjoy longer-lasting, more dramatic results.
