Liquid Face Lift is a non-surgical treatment which uses dermal fillers to achieve an overall full-face rejuvenation. Dermal filler is gel like substance made up of plumping agent naturally found in our skin. They are used to create or restore volume in the face and enhance desirable features such as cheek bones. There are many different types of dermal fillers approved for cosmetic use in Australia. They vary in strength, mouldability, softness and longevity. At COCO Skin Clinic we only offer premium-grade dermal fillers to our patients.
Before the Treatment
Prior to liquid face lift treatment at COCO Skin Clinic you will receive a face-to-face consultation with Dr Jane Lucas to determine if this is the right treatment for you. During this time, you will be able to ask questions and have any concerns addressed. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to ensure that all make-up and residue is removed prior to treatment. It will be disinfected using medicated solution.
During the Treatment
Topical numbing cream will be applied to treatment areas. We also use premium dermal fillers which all contain a numbing agent in their composition. With these measures, most people find that liquid face lift treatment is only minimally uncomfortable.
After the Treatment
You may experience localised bruising and swelling of the treated area immediately following liquid face lift treatment. The extent of this is very individual – however, we find that in most people, localised swelling settles within 24-48 hours and bruising settles within a few days. However, we do recommend that you allow 2 weeks recovery period before any major social events.
The results of liquid face lift treatment are evident immediately. We aim to achieve natural looking restoration of facial contours. We advocate for a natural looking, rejuvenated result – similar to as if you’ve been on a relaxing holiday.
- Enhancement of desired features – such as youthful cheeks, sharper jawline, reduction in jowls
- Restoration of volume loss
- Reduction in wrinkles and folds
- Plumper, rejuvenated skin
- Overall full-face rejuvenation (see our popular COCO Packages for more details)
Longevity of Results
The typical longevity of liquid face lift treatment is 12 – 18+ months. In most liquid face lift treatment, a minimum of 4mls of filler is used, with the possibility of additional treatments. Following the initial treatment, termed ‘foundation filler’, maintaining the results often requires less syringes of dermal filler, in most individuals. For example, to maintain the results from a non-surgical liquid lift using dermal fillers, most people can simply ‘top up’ annually with approximately half of the amount of dermal filler used in their initial foundation filler treatment. This treatment program is only a guide and Dr Jane Lucas will recommend the treatment plan that is right for you.
