A lot of patients who desire subtle wrinkle reduction, but don’t have the skin laxity that would call for a facelift, are good candidates for the liquid facelift.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
In an article recently published on FaceliftNet.com titled “Facelift Results Without Surgery,” renowned Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, describes the liquid facelift—a non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. The liquid facelift is a combination of dermal filler and Botox injections designed to fill in volume loss and smooth out wrinkles.
“A lot of patients who desire subtle wrinkle reduction, but don’t have the skin laxity that would call for a facelift, are good candidates for the liquid facelift. Performed in the office in just about 30 minutes, a liquid facelift is a great option for the busy individual,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
Using a combination of Botox and some of the most popular fillers, the doctor creates a customized treatment plan for each individual to address his or her unique problem areas. The dermal fillers address volume loss, such as hollow cheeks, temples, and under eyes, whereas Botox reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscle. Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra are some of the most popular fillers used in this procedure.
“The results of a liquid facelift can last 6 months or longer, but the results will depend on the specific injectables used and the individual patient. Although liquid facelift results are temporary, patients can easily come in for touch-up treatments to keep the youthful appearance going,” said Dr. Babak Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh also recommends Ulthera skin tightening and Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatments in conjunction with the liquid facelift for optimal results. Using gentle ultrasound technology, Ulthera stimulates the skin to lift and tighten. Fraxel laser resurfacing, on the other hand, repairs skin damage to minimize the appearance of sunspots and fine lines.
“Many non-invasive procedures work well when performed at the same time, and I like to treat skin tone and texture at the same time I reduce wrinkles. Without downtime, a combination of non-surgical treatments can have you looking younger almost as soon as you leave the office,” said Dr. Azizzadeh, renowned facial plastic surgeon.
Dr. Azizzadeh is the author of five bestselling books, including the popular consumer guidebook "Beverly Hills Beauty Secrets." He was recognized as a Beauty Expert in 2012, and has been featured in popular media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, LA Times and the NY Times. Dr. Azizzadeh serves on the Physician Advisory Board of Sanofi-Aventis, Mysoscience, Mentor, and SkinMedica, and was awarded the RealSelf Top Botox Experts Award in 2011.
