Have you considered a surgical procedure like a facelift or a neck lift to improve your look and restore youthfulness? Before undergoing any extensive procedure, it is always important to know all of your options.
A facelift is an incredibly invasive surgery that can require weeks to months of recovery time. The Dermatologic Surgery Center offers an alternative to the surgery: a liquid facelift. The liquid facelift procedure is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. Using a unique mix of cosmetic injections and specialized injection methods, we can deliver patients the age-defying results they want without having to go under the knife.
Call or visit the Dermatologic Surgery Center today to book your consultation for a liquid facelift in Medina, OH. We will lay out all of your options and will develop a specialized treatment plan for you based on your needs.
Traditional Facelift vs. Liquid Facelift
For a long time, facelifts were the most popular option for facial rejuvenation. The procedure produces dramatic results but involves extremely invasive surgery to lift and re-position facial or neck skin. Following surgery, patients generally experience extreme bruising, swelling, and pain associated with healing. Facelift patients will need to take 3-4 weeks off of work and daily activities to properly heal and look normal again. Furthermore, it can take up to a year to regain normal sensation and feeling in the face.
Because of advancements in cosmetic procedures, many patients are turning away from the traditional facelift in favor of less invasive alternatives. The liquid facelift offers patients the chance to add volume and shape the face without anesthesia, stitches, extensive side effects, and long recovery. At the Dermatologic Surgery Center in Medina, we always try to treat patients with minimally invasive alternatives before referring them to surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a better option for several of our Medina patients.
A liquid facelift may be a better alternative for you if:
- You are under 50
- You don’t have extensive sagging or loose skin
- Your face has lost significant volume with age
- Significant recovery time is not an option for you
- You want less risk of scarring and other complications*
- You want to save money*
While there are many benefits to a liquid facelift, the procedure is still not for everyone. At your consultation, our doctor will be able to give you all of your options and address any concerns or questions.
What Can a Liquid Facelift Treat?
A liquid facelift can treat a wide variety of problems associated with aging. While some of our patients are only looking for subtle results, we can also produce a dramatic change depending on the products and methods used. Moreover, because there are no incisions the results are likely to look more natural than a traditional facelift. The liquid facelift procedure at the Dermatologic Surgery Center is customized for every patient and their needs.
Some things a liquid facelift can treat include:
- Loss of volume in the face
- Hollows beneath the eyes
- Moderate to severe wrinkles and skin folds
- Sagging skin
- Fine lines
- Facial contouring
Depending on your situation, the liquid facelift may be able to treat other issues as well.
What Products Are Used?
We use a combination of cosmetic injections that is unique to every patient and their desired results. At our Medina office, we only use top-grade injections that we have seen produce the most quality results in our patients.
Depending on the areas and signs of aging treated DSC may use one or more of the following cosmetic injections:
- Botox® and Dysport®: Both Botox and Dysport can treat lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. In some cases, Botox and Dysport can also be used for facial contouring. Both products work by slowing the muscles in the area treated and last for 3-6 months. Most patients immediately return to work or daily activities following treatment
- Dermal Fillers: At DSC we offer dermal fillers Restylane® and Juvederm®. Both have a base of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body but deteriorates over time. Dermal fillers work to replace and enhance areas that have been affected by volume loss because of age. Both Restylane and Juvederm are highly effective at treating hollow areas, moderate to severe wrinkles, and areas that need facial contouring.
- Sculptra®: Sculptra is a long-lasting collagen simulator. The Sculptra injection produces gradual results by working on your body’s natural collagen production and can last for more than 2 years.*
- Kybella®: Kybella is the only FDA-approved injection to treat and dissolve a double-chin. A double-chin can develop from aging and is often the reason patients look to get a neck lift. Kybella offers an effective, non-invasive alternative for those looking to get rid of a stubborn double-chin who do not have an excess of loose skin.
When these products are carefully combined they can produce dramatic, natural-looking results that can restore a patient’s confidence.
