The liquid facelift is a non-invasive way for total facial rejuvenation. Not to be compared with an invasive surgical rejuvenation, liquid facelift is able to conservatively improve aging changes to the face and neck. The combination of hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite volumizes specific areas of the face that have deflated and descended over time. The amount of product necessary for your procedure will be outlined at your consultation by Dr. Farkas. The treatment takes around 30 minutes and results last for up to one year or longer. Your body metabolizes the products over time stimulating collagen production. The liquid facelift does not alter or impair your ability to have a surgical procedure in the future and may be a good precursor for patient not quite ready for a definitive surgical correction.
Dr. Farkas had extensive training in invasive and non-invasive facial rejuvenation authoring peer reviewed publications specifically focused on the anatomy of facial aging. This understanding allows him to concentrate your treatment on the specific areas of your face that have changed over time such as your pre-jowl and tear trough. Different soft tissue fillers have different volumizing characteristics and Dr. Farkas will explain the benefit of each in detail at your consultation. You will likely encounter some bruising and swelling following the procedure that may last 3-5 days. A post treatment healing regimen developed by Farkas Plastic Surgery will be discussed at your consultation to help you through the healing process.
