According to our Medical Director and Founder Emeka Okwuje, MD, what many women and men see in the mirror as they age doesn’t reflect how they feel inside or view themselves. This is especially true if they prescribe to a healthy and active lifestyle, and enjoy success in life and work. This is one of the main reasons that patients tend to turn to anti-aging procedures, such as neuromodulators, filler injections, laser procedures, and facelifts.
If a loss of fullness is primarily responsible for aging our faces, then why is a facelift the go-to for some looking to reclaim a younger appearance?
The truth is, for many patients, it’s not. Many highly skilled and experienced doctors and their patients seek to emulate the signs of a youthful face by adding the youthful volume back in instead of stretching the skin tighter. While many of us want to fight the aging process, not everyone feels comfortable having facelift surgery. Luckily, there is a nonsurgical option with minimal downtime called a ‘Liquid Facelift.’
A typical Liquid Facelift, which is also referred to as a ‘Non-surgical Facelift’ or ‘8 Point Facelift,’ refers to a group of non-surgical aesthetic procedures that are designed to temporarily restore a more youthful, and rested appearance. Many people prefer a Liquid Facelift compared to a traditional surgical facelift because of its safety, minimal downtime, and more subtle and natural-looking results. The Liquid Facelift uses injectables known as dermal fillers, along with Botox to help plump up, relax, and fill in the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. This resurfaces the skin and stimulates the creation of new collagen. It can also restore youthful volume to the face, reduce sagging of the skin by filling it up from the inside, and re-contour drooping facial features or hollowing eyes. It is one of the latest anti-aging trends in non-invasive cosmetic procedures and can deliver incredible results in a very short period of time at a reasonable cost.
If you want to rejuvenate your face, but you’re not ready for surgery, you’re going to love Dr. Okwuje’s Signature Liquid Facelifts. It leverages the most innovative use of dermal fillers and injectable neuromodulators and also includes other modalities such as PRP facials, fillers, microneedling, and expert use of chemical peels to sculpt, smooth, and enhance your face. This takes years off your appearance without making a single incision. By sculpting, contouring, and lifting areas of your face, Dr. Okwuje will create a more rested, youthful, and attractive expression.
• Help you look younger and more rested
• Reduce lines, wrinkles, folds and creases
• Add volume to flattened cheeks or temples
• Create fuller, and natural-looking lips
• Improve the appearance of bags and dark circles under your eyes
• Lift drooping corners of the mouth
• Define your chin and jaws
• Restore a youthful glow and texture to your skin
If you are experiencing a loss of volume in your cheeks, less definition in your jaw-line area, sagging brows, dark under-eye circles, and lines and wrinkles that are affecting how you feel about your appearance, a Liquid Facelift may be a good option for you. It’s also ideal if for those that would like to enhance their facial features.
A Liquid Facelift is a minimally invasive option for addressing the loss of volume, expression lines, and hollowed areas. Many of our patients achieve their desired look after just one treatment session. Others choose to revisit our Center to get the desired results over several days.
After an in-depth aesthetic evaluation with Dr. Okwuje, where you discuss your aesthetic concerns, goals, and questions, he will develop a unique aesthetic treatment plan listing the procedures required to meet your goals. The products chosen for your procedure will be selected based on the results you want, the areas being treated, and the expertise of our doctor.
Dr. O will use local anesthesia and other strategies to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Patients can actively participate in the process to ensure they are satisfied with the results. In many cases, the entire procedure lasts less than 30-minutes, and our patients are often relieved that they have experienced minimal discomfort. Some patients might experience small bruising or swelling afterward, but complications such as allergies or infection are generally extremely rare.
One of the most amazing aspects of getting a Liquid Facelift is that the results will begin appearing immediately– while the procedure is happening. However, improvements will continue as the neuromodulators start to relax tense muscles, and any swelling will disappear over the following few days. No recovery time is needed, and patients can return to normal activities right away. After a few months to a year (pending treatment type), when the effects start to fade, you can revisit us for touch-ups to extend the life of your new look.
A variety of different neuromodulators and dermal fillers may be used to contour your face. At RevitalizeMaui, we also offer our unique PRP modalities to further maximize the results of our signature Liquid Facelifts. Read more about each one on our other pages:
Liquid Facelifts are safe and require minimal downtime compared to surgical options (offering long-lasting results). With a full correction, most effects of a Liquid Facelift can last for 1-2 years. At RevitalizeMaui, we always make sure that we restore your youthful look without looking overdone. If you’re nervous, or if you’d like to see results over time for personal or financial reasons, you don’t have to have all of your injections and treatments performed in one visit. It is possible to spread out your full-face correction over several visits with us. Many of our patients appreciate that Liquid Facelifts are not permanent, because they have the option to change the way they age over time with a more natural appearance. Dr. Okwuje is available for aesthetic evaluations. During a consult, he’ll make sure you are a good candidate for a Liquid Facelift treatment and customize one for your unique anatomy and skin.
The overall costs depend on the amount and type of neuromodulators and dermal fillers used, as well as other procedures included such as Microneedling with PRP, PRP facials, PRP filler treatments, chemical peels, and more. Your liquid facelift will be completely customized based on your facial anatomy, tell-tale signs of aging, and the unique skin issues you’re having addressed.
