A "liquid facelift" is for patients who need to address various facial concerns but are trying to avoid having to go under the knife. Today, the technology and treatments are such that skilled cosmetic surgeons can deliver similar results using minimally invasive procedures.
At Avalon Laser in San Diego and Carlsbad, we specialize in laser and minimally invasive facial and body rejuvenation treatments. These treatments allow our patients to enhance their appearance and achieve a healthy, natural look without having to undergo extensive, invasive procedures.
For liquid facelift patients, Dr. Tirgari uses a combination of injectables to restore volume to certain parts of the face while filling in wrinkles and stimulating the body’s natural ability to promote collagen production. The unique combination of injectables and dosages will depend on each patients aesthetic needs. Dr. Tirgari will draft a custom treatment plan after closely examining your face and talking to you about your aesthetic concerns. Please call 800-896-1138 today to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.
Why Consider Liquid Facelift Treatment?
A liquid facelift has many benefits. A major plus of this procedure is that you do not have to undergo surgery to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Dr. Tirgari will utilize a combination of the most advanced dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic to help you achieve your desired look. During your treatment our doctor may use one or more of the following injectables, depending on your unique aesthetic needs:
- Juvederm: This dermal filler can address a number of facial aesthetic concerns, most often, lack of facial volume as result of aging. It can be used to fill in hollow areas of the face and plum the lips. We use Juvederm XC, which includes lidocaine for maximum patient comfort.
- Juvederm Voluma: This dermal filler specifically restores volume in three areas of the cheeks, including the apple, apex and hollow. The results can last up to two years.
- BOTOX: Dr. Tirgari will use BOTOX® Cosmetic to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of crows feet and lines around the eyes. Because BOTOX® prevents muscle contractions, it also prevents formation of new lines and wrinkles.
By undergoing a liquid facelift, you can truly lift the entire face, eliminate wrinkles and achieve a refreshed and more youthful facial appearance with minimal down time and immediate results.
Recovery and After Care
After undergoing a non-surgical facelift, Dr. Tirgari will provide you with detailed after care instructions. While there is no downtime associated with this procedure, you may consider taking a half day during which you can relax and allow your results to take shape.
Any discomfort associated with liquid facelift will be at the injection sites only, which may temporarily lead to minor bruising and swelling. For this we recommend that you ice the injection sites and take mild over-the-counter pain pills only if needed. Most patients are able to tolerate this procedure quite well and experience excellent results withing a few days. Touch up treatments may be required in a few months. Dr. Tirgari will schedule a follow-up appointment with you.
After your liquid facelift treatment, Dr. Tirgari and his staff will be available to you at anytime during day or night for questions and/or concerns. However, our patients tolerate this procedure very well and we have an excellent track record when it comes to superb safety, after care services and outcomes.
When you visit us for your complimentary consultation, Dr. Tirgari will first discuss your concerns and examine your skin. Based on this information as well as your medical history, he will recommend the best treatment options for you and the best combination of dermal filler and BOTOX® Cosmetic that will give you the aesthetic results you are seeking.
