Age growth affects all parts of body but the signs of aging are most obvious on the face. Conventional facelifts have the potential of taking off years from your face but they are invasive and require anesthesia.
Moreover, conventional face lifts require quite a few months of recovery time. However, the latest procedure in the realm of face lifting is Liquid Face Lift. It is a nonsurgical procedure for treating crow’s eyes, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and collagen from the facial areas.

Liquid Facelift For Treating Sagging Skin
Only filler filled injections are used in liquid facelifts to sculpt and mold the face. Liquid face lift is a good option for those who don’t wish to go for a major cosmetic procedure.
Liquid Face Lift Overview
Liquid face lift Association describes this procedure as non-surgical and non-invasive and best for those who do not want to go under the knife for removing the signs of aging.
With aging, production of collagen and elastin retards. Both these proteins are essential for maintaining elasticity and volume in the skin. Without the presence of these proteins, the skin starts to sag and signs of aging such as wrinkles, crow’s feet and creases start to appear on the face.

Liquid face lift involves use of botulinum and other dermal fillers to re-contour the face by removing the signs of aging and giving it a lift. The process is pain free and does not make use of anesthesia.
Conventional Face Lifts
There are several options available in the realm of facelifts. You can choose amongst traditional face lift, neck lift, limited-incision facelift and others.
When you go for a traditional facelift, your cosmetic surgeon starts by giving you anesthesia and then making an incision on your face. He will most probably start from the temples and then will go around the ear finally terminating at the lower scalp.
The fat underling the skin is redistributed to other parts of the face and the excess fat is removed. The tissues in the face are then repositioned and finally any excess skin present on the face is removed. Patients in most of the cases experience postsurgical swelling and complete healing may take several days.

Liquid Face Lift
Liquid Face Lift is different from the other face lifts in terms of the method of delivery. Moreover, in liquid face lift, it is the patient’s choice whether wants to lift the entire face or focus on the features that are problematic.
Both, dermal fillers and Botox are used during the procedure. While the botox aids in relaxation of those muscles that pull the face downwards, dermal fillers provide lift to the face and also add volume.
Although liquid facelift is being marketed assiduously as the best replacement for surgical face lift but the procedure may not be fruitful for those who have an excessively loose skin, especially on the cheeks and neck.
It is best suggested for those who require a subtle lift on their face. The result of liquid face lift may also not be permanent. The results generally last for 12 to 14 months.
