Liquid Facelift Vs. Traditional Facelift: What’s the Difference?

If you’ve arrived at the point in your life where you’re just now beginning to consider anti-aging cosmetic procedures, you have great timing!

It wasn’t long ago that the traditional facelift was your only option for addressing the fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging on your face. And although a fine option, the traditional facelift meant surgery, health risks, and lots of downtime. It was also really expensive, and often produced not-so-natural looking results.

But today, innovations in the field of non-surgical cosmetic enhancement mean the traditional facelift is no longer your only option.

At Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine in San Diego, we specialize in non-surgical solutions, and the Liquid Facelift is a patient-favorite!

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A Liquid Facelift uses injectable fillers, rather than surgery, to reduce signs of aging.  There are several different kinds of injectables, and although some produce similar results, each differs in its own way and has its own area of strength. Some of the injectables we offer at Beatitude include:

Injectable collagen filler that can instantly smooth your acne scars and smile lines for a beautiful natural-looking correction that lasts.

Works to smooth wrinkles caused by muscle activity. Most often used on frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet (smile lines around the eyes).

Works to plump the skin, soften lines and wrinkles, and return a youthful appearance to the face. It also helps reduce the appearance of scars and to enhance the size and shape of lips.

Juvederm Voluma
Works to add volume deep beneath the skin’s surface to address flattened cheeks and sagging skin. It restores volume and youthful contour to combat signs of age-related mid-face volume loss.

Treats the sunken and hollowed areas of the face by stimulating the production of new collagen.

Replenishes your skin’s hyaluronic acid and will plump the skin which makes any lines and wrinkles disappear.

Dr. Chang’s extensive experience with a wide variety of injectables means that at Beatitude, you get a completely customizable non-surgical facelift by a highly skilled physician with an expert hand and a keen eye for natural-looking cosmetic enhancement.

Liquid Facelift vs. Traditional Facelift? You choose.

While the traditional facelift can be helpful in addressing sagging skin and wrinkles, it has the most impact on the lower part of the face. So if you want to address signs of aging on your forehead or around your eyes, you’ll need additional procedures.

Your Liquid Facelift with Dr. Chang, however, is customizable and can address signs of aging on all parts of the face, including:

  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Jowls
  • Hollows beneath the eyes
  • Folds around the mouth
  • Sunken facial features
  • Pucker lines around the mouth

The traditional facelift requires surgery, which means you run the risk of complications associated with anesthesia. It also requires serious downtime for recovery, and also leaves behind some incision scars.

The Liquid Facelift, on the other hand, requires no incisions and no anesthesia. It’s non-invasive, which makes it both safer and more convenient.  Although you may want to take a day or two to allow for potential swelling or redness to subside, for the most part, you can go about your regular business shortly after your Liquid Facelift. Plus, no scarring!

Additionally, while the traditional facelift tends to produce somewhat exaggerated results, the Liquid Facelift (especially in Dr. Chang’s hands) produces natural-looking results, so when you look in the mirror, you’re still you – only better!

Oh, and as for price, the Liquid Facelift beats the traditional facelift hands down.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
