Our faces contain natural collagen and elastin that keep skin firm. However, as we age, we begin to lose some of this natural collagen and elastin which can result in the appearance of fine line, wrinkles, sagging skin and bags under the eyes. To date, many people have sought to treat the signs of aging with plastic surgery procedures, like facelifts and eyelifts. Others have gone the non-surgical route by choosing injectibles like Botox.
Now, there is a new procedure that is known to contour and smooth the face. This procedure is called a "liquid facelift" and it has several benefits. First, it can gently lift a person's face and skin. Second, it can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Finally, it can lead to a "rested" look as well as a more youthful appearance.
Unlike the traditional facelift which requires sedation and an operation, liquid facelifts are non-surgical and are designed to lift or contour specific regions of the face. For example, a person with under-eye bags can get a liquid facelift to reduce puffiness and sagging skin. All of this is accomplished with the use of dermal fillers which are carefully injected by plastic surgeons.
