Liquid Facelift in Philadelphia, PA
The fact that dermal fillers tend to smooth only one area of the face used to mean that individuals who wanted to treat more than one problem spot had to undergo a facelift. Thanks to the development of the liquid facelift technique that is no longer the case. Dr. Raymond D. Jean performs liquid facelifts at Main Line Plastic Surgery for patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid or non-surgical facelift involves using more than one dermal filler at the same time to provide a smoother appearance over the whole face. For example, Dr. Jean may use Botox® to smooth the forehead and brow area, followed by Voluma® to erase nasolabial folds and Kybella® to reduce a double chin.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
You may consider a liquid facelift if you are bothered by more than one sign of aging and do not wish to undergo surgery. Keep in mind that a liquid facelift will provide more dramatic results than you would notice after having individual treatments, so you might prefer to stagger your injections if you are worried about how others might react.
Planning your Liquid Facelift Treatment
A liquid facelift takes only slightly longer than a single dermal filler injection. Most procedures can be performed in around an hour or so, meaning you should not have to take an extended amount of time off from work.
How is a Liquid Facelift Performed?
Dr. Jean will first determine which fillers will provide you with the type of results you desire. He will then have an aesthetician cleanse your skin while he prepares the different solutions. Injections are normally given in the forehead first, progressing downward to the mouth and chin area.
How Much Does a Liquid Facelift Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as a liquid facelift are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford a non-surgical facelift on your terms.
What to Expect* after a Liquid Facelift
Some dermal fillers provide immediate results, while the benefits of others are not seen right away. As such, you may “fill out” in some areas before you do others. This should smooth itself out within a few days once all of your fillers have begun working.
Recovering from a Liquid Facelift
You may notice a bit more swelling than usual when having multiple fillers injected at once. However, the amount of time it takes for the swelling to go down is about the same as normal, usually within just a day or two.
