Love the way your face looks when you just lift the sides a tiny bit? The cheeks get pulled back a little, the smile lines soften, and the jowl also gets a little lift. But if surgery just seems a bit over the top for you, then the liquid face lift would be the perfect option for you. It has minimal downtime and you can walk out looking years younger.
Liquid face lift is the combined use of Dysport® and Sculptra®. One softens wrinkles and the boost collagen production. This combination really gets a “wow” for many of our clients. Come in and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to look 15 years younger!
How many treatments will I need?
Most individuals require between 1 to 3 treatments of Sculptra®, for optimal results lasting more than 2 years. It’s an 1 hour office procedure. Sculptra ® requires time for rehydration and even distribution, therefor consultation is required before the product is activated. Consultation and treatments can be done within the same week.
How does this compare to other laser and RF treatments to tighten skin?
Sculptra stimulates collagen where the volume loss occurred.
During aging we lose volume at different depth of the face. We lose collagen superficially, we lose facial fat at 2-3mm deep, facial muscles become weak and over used at 3-4mm deep, and the forces of upper and lower teeth hitting against each other over the years, changes our bone structure underneath at 6mm+ depth. Sculptra can be placed at each of these level to correct all signs of aging.
Laser treatment can only stimulate collagen 1mm to 2mm of skin, it does not treat fat loss or bone changes.
RF treatment can stimulate collagen up to 3mm depth but the technology induces facial subcutaneous fat loss. While the skin at 1mm looks firmer, it can cause the fat pad on the face at 2-3mm to atrophy, causing the appearance of aging at areas such as the nose to mouth line.
The most effective and long lasting to tighten loose facial skin is Sculptra. It will effectively delay the appearance of aging for 2 more years.
Is there any down time after liquid face lift?
No. Soon after the procedure, you may feel a slight soreness on the skin, and some redness which will disappear over the next few days. You may massage the area daily to promote collagen growth. If the area is slightly bruised, you can wear make up. You may immediately return to all other normal daily activities.
How long does it take for the results to become evident?
The results are gradual. You will see improvements daily. Sculptra® is a collagen stimulator. It is normal to see the immediate plumping effect disappear and skin returning to its hollowed state within hours to a few days post treatment. That does not mean Sculptra® is not working. In fact, Sculptra® is still there, discretely improving skin texture by stimulating collagen. Sculptra® achieves its full effect over several weeks, but the visible results will last longer than 2 years.
