Are you a resident of the Burbank area who is looking to freshen up your face without surgery? Facial fillers combined with Botox®, popularly known as the “liquid facelift“, has helped many people turn back the clock on aging skin without the need for any downtime. Minimally-invasive techniques also tend to cost less than cosmetic surgery and involve fewer complications.
Causes of Facial Aging
As we grow older, substances in our skin like collagen tend to break down more readily. Eventually, collagen breaks down faster than your body can replace it. Another naturally-occurring substance called hyaluronic acid tends to become depleted in older people. This leads to skin that loses volume, moisture, and is more susceptible to the formation of wrinkles.
The Liquid Facelift
A liquid facelift in Burbank is simply a procedure involving the injection of substances like hyaluronic acid and Botox®. Facial fillers can significantly enhance your appearance and have you back at work or your daily activities immediately after your fast procedure. Botox® is a purified protein solution that addresses dynamic wrinkles, which are something normal facial fillers do not correct. So you are able to treat both static and dynamic wrinkles with a liquid facelift, which means excellent facial rejuvenation.
Some of the facial filler products contain hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. The hyaluronic acid will draw moisture into your skin, which has a plumping and volumizing effect. Lidocaine is included to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Another type of facial filler that may be used contains something called calcium hydroxylapatite. The substance is found in bones and teeth. Once injected, this filler goes to work to begin restoring facial skin volume to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
The best facial filler will be chosen for you at your consultation with our professionals. How long the fillers last as well as the results you will see are determined by the type of filler used. Most dermal fillers last up to a year or more, however. Botox® results typically start to fade away after four months. You can always contact us to schedule a follow-up appointment if you are happy with your results.
Liquid Facelift Results
The results of a liquid facelift will vary widely, depending upon what type of product you were treated with. As the product is absorbed, more must be injected for the maintenance of results.
