Liquid Facelift in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL
The popularity of dermal fillers and injectables has introduced many new techniques for improving one’s appearance. Liquid facelifts offer men and women an alternative to traditional plastic surgery. As a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, Dr. Dean G. Davis is uniquely qualified to deliver superb liquid facelift results to the residents of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and surrounding areas in Florida.
A facelift is a major procedure that many are not quite prepared for due to the surgical aspect. As an alternative, those that want immediate results without undergoing surgery may want to consider a liquid facelift to give themselves an immediate makeover.
An Alternative to Surgery
Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Sculptra®, Restylane®, and Botox® are all injectables that can be used to smooth out wrinkles and gently reshape the face. These are all effective methods to look younger and healthier, and many have now turned to this form of “liquid facelift” as one of the newest options for erasing wrinkles.
Liquid Facial Contouring
One of the most visible signs of aging is sagging skin on and around one’s face. Skin sags as we age due to a decrease in collagen and elastin. These two types of protein are responsible for keeping skin tight and free from wrinkles. When there is not enough collagen and elastin, then you may notice that wrinkles and folds will begin to form. Many plastic surgeons attempt to reshape the face with a blend of FDA-approved dermal fillers and Botox®, but reducing wrinkles is often an afterthought. A liquid facelift, on the other hand, is carried out to remove wrinkles and folds without having to surgically restructure the entirety of one’s face in a piecemeal fashion.
The non-surgical liquid facelift can accomplish the following:
- Improve your smile
- Create a friendlier and youthful appearance
- Restore the natural structure of your face
- Lift only specific facial features
- Provide you with all of these benefits with no lengthy recovery period
How a Liquid Facelift Works
A liquid facelift utilizes both Botox® and advanced dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and lines. The products that are used are a second generation of fillers that provide patients with amazing results for a much longer period of time. Dr. Davis uses dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Sculptra® to replace volume in your face exactly where it is needed. Every one of these products serves a different purpose. Precisely placed, these dermal fillers can lift or contour any facial feature. Dr. Davis knows how to combine the products to get the best results, based on your unique needs and facial contour.
While liquid facelifts are a great option for almost anyone that would like to remove wrinkles and lines, this treatment may not be the best choice for everyone. Those who wish to alter the shape of their face dramatically may need to opt for a surgical treatment instead of dermal fillers. These fillers only gently alter the facial structure and, therefore, may not provide every patient with the results they desire. As time goes on, you may also need touch-ups at regular intervals. This will depend on your face maintaining its shape. With the proper aftercare, however, you may eventually lengthen the time between treatments.
A liquid facelift may not be an ideal treatment for every single patient, but this amazing process can greatly improve the appearance of your face and skin without the need for comprehensive surgery. Patients are often surprised to hear that doctors that have exclusively relied on surgical augmentation in the past are now utilizing liquid facelifts to improve the results after surgery. You also have the option of undergoing a liquid facial before restructuring surgery has taken place. This will allow you to see if you can achieve the results that you would like without undergoing a serious procedure.
How Much Do Liquid Facelifts Cost?
Liquid facelifts are a cosmetic treatment which are not typically covered under insurance. Most patients must pay out of pocket for liquid facelifts. To help you cover the cost of the treatment, we accept CareCredit® financing. Dr. Davis accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well.
