A liquid facelift involves the use of dermal fillers, sometimes in combination with Botox, to create a more youthful facial appearance. These fillers may include Juvéderm Vollure, Juvéderm Voluma, Juvéderm Volbella, and Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus. Each of these fillers works in their own unique way to rejuvenate different areas of the face. Created with hyaluronic acid, they work to bind moisture to the skin to create youthful volume. Unlike some types of fillers, since these are made of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin, they can be dissolved with hyaluronidase if there are any issues or dissatisfaction with the results.
Because dermal fillers and injectables are nonsurgical treatments, there is little to no downtime required following a liquid facelift. Mild redness, swelling, bruising, or itching at the injection sites may occur but should resolve quickly. Most people return immediately to their normal activities, though light activity for 24 hours following the injections is recommended. The longevity of your liquid facelift will depend on the combination of fillers used.
