Looking for a less-invasive alternative to a standard facelift? The liquid facelift may be the answer for you! Men and women alike have been seeking out the liquid facelift in Honolulu for years and years. The liquid facelift helps bring back a youthful exuberance and rejuvenated look to your face with almost no down time and no overnight stays at the hospital.
The word facelift is somewhat misleading in the case of the liquid facelift because a traditional facelift is predominantly focused on tightening the skin, whereas a liquid facelift involves no literal tightening. Instead, a liquid facelift involves a large amount of fillers and chemodenervation agents like Botox or Dysport. These products will be used to target aging parts of the face and paralyze the muscles under those targeted areas. Paralyzing the muscles under the aged areas of the face will cause them to relax, creating a smoother appearance. The benefits of the liquid facelift should last around six months, and the longevity will vary from patient to patient.
Movement wrinkles across the forehead and elsewhere are treated with Botox or Dysport. A variety of fillers can be used to treat folds, furrows, grooves, lines, depressions, and bony/ fatty atrophy.
Some Honolulu plastic surgeons will offer a liquid facelift using all natural injections (fat). This process is rather extensive due to the necessity of grafting fat from another part of the body and tends to take longer than a typical liquid facelift, is less predictable and successful.
If you need a quick facial “pick me up” for a reunion or first date and don’t have the funds or recovery time required for a traditional facelift, the liquid facelift could be perfect for you!
