Liquid Facelift in Champaign-Urbana

As we age, it is normal to want a more youthful complexion. The classic facelift is a surgical procedure that addresses wrinkles and skin laxity. Unfortunately, this treatment option doesn’t target the loss of volume associated with the aging process. Moreover, it is a big commitment that requires downtime. Luckily, there are now non-surgical options available. One of these is the liquid facelift.

Dr. Russo from Rejuvenis Facial Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa has extensive experience performing liquid facelifts in Champaign-Urbana. He works closely with all of his patients to ensure that they achieve the results they desire. Better yet, he does this in his state-of-the-art facility, thus blending quality service with maximum comfort.

What Is a Liquid Facelift?

Unlike a classic facelift, a liquid facelift requires no incisions. Instead, this procedure involves lifting, smoothing and plumping the face with the use of a combination of dermal fillers designed to offer long-lasting results. These fillers work to smooth aging skin, adding a dose of youthful rejuvenation to the face.

The Different Types of Fillers

Dr. Russo uses various types of dermal fillers during each procedure. These are composed of different materials, allowing them to provide different results. The most common injectable dermal fillers used during a liquid facelift include:

Dr. Russo uses these products in conjunction with Botox to ensure patients are left with the best and most long-lasting results.

Liquid Facelift Candidate

The best candidate for a liquid facelift in Champaign-Urbana are both men and women above the age of 18. This procedure is perfect for anyone who has an aging face or who would like to improve the appearance of:

  • Jowls
  • Wrinkles around the lips and eyes
  • Glabellar lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Flat or sagging cheeks
  • Hollow eyes

A non-surgical facelift is also good for reducing the appearance of lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. This procedure is not suitable for patients with preexisting neuromuscular disorders such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Lambert-Eaton Syndrome. It is also not suitable for pregnant women.

The Risks of a Non-Surgical Facelift

The risks associated with a non-surgical facelift in Champaign-Urbana are far fewer than those of a traditional one. In fact, many choose this treatment option because it involves less downtime. Despite having fewer drawbacks, many patients suffer from slight bruising at the treatment area. This bruising should subside within a week of the procedure.

In more severe cases, patients experience:

  • Eye problems
  • drooping of the eyebrow
  • Ptosis

It is important that you tell your physician if you have any allergies to avoid a reaction during the procedure.
