About Liquid Facelifts
A liquid facelift is a nonsurgical procedure that allows you to experience the results of a surgical facelift without having to withstand a major plastic surgery procedure. The liquid facelift process at Schoemann Plastic Surgery employs a specialized combination of wrinkle relaxers and fillers to return volume and smoothness to the face, helping you to look more youthful. The injectable fillers work by increasing the volume of the face while decreasing fine lines, and the wrinkle relaxers create overall smoothness. For drastic results, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann can include other treatments such as dermabrasion, chemical peels, medical-grade facials, or laser skin resurfacing. For more information, contact our Encinitas, CA practice right away. Dr. Schoemann is a double board-certified, fellowship-trained plastic surgeon with the experience and skill to create a unique treatment plan, which will help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Those most qualified for the liquid facelift procedure are individuals who hope to decrease the signs of aging and add volume to the face without having to experience the recovery associated with a plastic surgery. It’s an exciting option for southern California patients hoping to fill in irregularities such as bumps and pits in the skin while restoring youth to the facial features. A liquid facelift at Schoemann Plastic Surgery can lift drooping eyelids, restore volume to hollow cheeks or temples, and remove dark circles and under eye bags. The procedure is also ideal for individuals seeking quick results.
Before the procedure, Dr. Schoemann will use your aesthetic goals to determine which combination of injectables should be used to achieve these results. The procedure technique for both the relaxers and fillers is the same, beginning with Dr. Schoemann distinguishing the sites where injections will take place. Next, your skin will be cleansed and a local anesthetic may be applied to injection sites. Using a fine needle and syringe, Dr. Schoemann will start injecting fillers and relaxers into the desired areas. The entire procedure is done in-office in a few minutes’ time.
What to Expect
The fillers and relaxers used in our Encinitas, CA facility are approved by the FDA and are considered safe to use. The effects of fillers are typically observed right away, while relaxers could take up to a week to produce optimal results. If you are also wanting to undergo additional cosmetic treatments, you may be advised to wait a few days after injections. The longevity of the results depends on the relaxers and fillers used in the procedure. Some products only last up to four months, while others can last much longer. Patients should come back to Schoemann Plastic Surgery for touch-ups in order to maintain results.
