Many people are often very nervous and the thought of having to go under the knife for a small troublesome area just doesn’t seem feasible for them. The good news is there are now a lot of skin rejuvenation techniques today that don’t involve cutting.
Facial fillers, Sculptra® in particular has been used effectively in adding volume and lift to the face with results that can give a lifting appearance.
Other fillers, such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, and the brand new, Restylane Silk, can achieve similar results, but this does involve a significant volume to be injected into the face. This is what is typically meant by a non-surgical or “liquid facelift.” I also recommend that fillers be used in combination with fractionated C02 lasers which help to tighten the skin and minimize fine lines and wrinkles, giving an overall rejuvenated appearance, not just volume. The benefit to these kinds of fillers is should you ever be unhappy with your “new voluminous” look you can always have the substance “melted” and revert back to the original look your face had prior to treatment.
We have adopted the “liquid facelift” as one of our primary methods of treatment here at Contour Dermatology and have perfect the new refreshed look that makes our patients look years younger without the need of invasive procedures.
