When the first signs of aging show up on your face, you might consider nonsurgical treatments that’ll help to keep you looking youthful without much — if any — downtime. The liquid facelift is becoming more and more popular for this very reason. If you’re not quite sure what this is or if it could be right for you, take a look at these common liquid facelift FAQs to help you decide.

What’s Included in a Liquid Facelift?

There isn’t a set list of treatments that have to be included in a liquid facelift, so you can customize yours to suit your unique needs and goals. Generally speaking, most liquid facelifts include some type of injectable, whether that be dermal fillers or BOTOX® or Dysport®.

Depending on your specific cosmetic concerns, the right injectables can help to smooth away lines and wrinkles around your eyes, on your forehead and around your mouth, as well as add volume to your face and lips.

Most injectable treatments don’t require any downtime at all.

Who’s a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?

Virtually anyone who would like to improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles or restore lost facial volume could be a good candidate for a liquid facelift.

Keep in mind, though, that nonsurgical treatments aren’t going to deliver the same dramatic results as a surgical facelift would. So if your concerns are very pronounced jowls or sagging skin in other areas, a surgical procedure may be the most appropriate solution.

How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?

Liquid facelifts can last anywhere from 3 to 18 months, depending on the type of injectable you choose. BOTOX and Dysport typically last around 3 to 6 months, while injectable fillers can last between 6 and 18 months.
