If you want a subtle way to reduce signs of aging,
a liquid facelift can be the answer.
Our Newport Beach Liquid Facelift provides a subtle change in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This technique is non-invasive as the injector only injects dermal fillers into your skin; no need for invasive procedures.
Dr. Monica Bonakdar, the owner of Bonakdar Aesthetics, uses a combination of BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal fillers to achieve a youthful look. She has been in practice for over 20 years. Her mission is to help patients achieve a more confident and youthful version of themselves.
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. It’s an effective method if you don’t want a surgical and invasive approach. With this non-surgical approach, dermal fillers are injected into the skin, and they go to work by reducing sagging and wrinkles. The fillers are substances that plump the skin by restoring facial fullness and allowing a more youthful appearance.
Depending on your goals and how your skin reacts to the treatment, you may need routine visits. Regardless, most people would agree that a less invasive approach outweighs going the more invasive facelift route. Since liquid facelifts provide a more subtle change, they are ideal for people who have mild sagging and fewer wrinkles.
Despite being a more gentle and less invasive, a liquid facelift can combat several signs of aging, just like the traditional facelift method. As long as a liquid facelift is performed by an experienced dermatology expert like Monica Bonakdar, MD, you can benefit from this method in various ways. Some benefits you can expect are:
Even though the results of a liquid facelift may be temporary, that doesn’t mean your new confidence will diminish fast. You can embrace your new look for months. The longevity of your results depends on the filler you used. The great thing is as long as you keep your maintenance appointments, you won’t have to worry about losing your results.
A liquid facelift is a safe procedure for most people who want to achieve a more youthful look without surgery. Some people don’t benefit from the liquid facelift, though. Just an example - If you have extreme sagging, heavy jowls, multiple wrinkles, and fine lines with heavy definition, you may not benefit; however, you would benefit from a more advanced facelift approach.
The only way to know if you are a good candidate for a liquid facelift is to schedule a consultation. During your appointment with our dermatology expert, you will go over the procedure and determine your goals, what you’re looking to achieve, and other necessary information. From there, you will find out if you would benefit from this non-surgical method.
The first step is for your surgeon to examine your face to agree on the proper treatment plan, specifically for your goals. If cost may be an issue, find out the estimated cost before embarking on this journey.
The next step involves your surgeon marketing the injection sites for proper precision. Under-eye hollows and tops of the cheekbones are often the common places to lose volume and be one of the first to mark.
Cleaning the injection areas is vital, and the provider may use a topical numbing agent unless the filler they use already has lidocaine. The injections are done with a thin needle or cannula, which is a technique that reduces swelling and bruising. Once the filling is injected, the provider may massage the area. After it’s finished, you will need to go back for follow-up appointments for further treatment injections.
It’s common to experience some tenderness, bruising, and swelling around the injection site. Most people can resume normal activities in just two days.
The severity of the swelling and bruising will depend on how the body reacts, along with how many injection sites you have. You should wait at least one day before exercising or lifting things. It’s essential to give the filler time to settle. If you don’t wait to exercise, you can increase your risk of bruising and swelling around the treatment area(s).
The results of a liquid facelift are a more youthful and radiant appearance.
The longevity of your injectable facelift result depends on the product, the amount, and where the treatment was placed. Also, keep in mind that the type of filler matters, too. Poly-L-lactic acid may last longer than hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
Most people notice their results last around six months and up to two years. To maintain your results, you may need maintenance treatment. You can lose volume over time, but that’s nothing maintenance appointments can’t take care of as long as you keep up on the treatment.
Aging is inevitable. We are all going to age; however, we don’t have to lose our self-confidence along the way. Not everyone enjoys the look of aging.
If you want a more youthful look and are considering a liquid facelift Newport Beach dermatology expert, Dr. Bonakdar, can answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have. It all starts with a consultation, so schedule your appointment today and let’s go over your goals. Together we can achieve the look you have been wanting.
Everyone is different, but the surgeon usually applies a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The injection may or may not sting a little but shouldn’t be extremely painful.
A liquid facelift is typically safe if a board-licensed professional provides the treatment. However, some risks may involve bruising, swelling, and similar reactions.
You won’t need anesthesia for this procedure, so you can drive home.
Our liquid facelift cost can vary from person to person. The price can vary depending on the treatment area, how much filler, the type of filler, and the follow-up appointments.
Since a liquid facelift is a cosmetic procedure, it’s likely not covered by insurance. However, you can always double-check your plan to find out.
Facial aging starts as early as the 30s. People often benefit from a liquid facelift in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. However, the optimal age depends on the person’s preferences and the surgeon’s opinion on when to start treatment.
