The Liquid Facelift procedure uses natural, injectable fillers to lift and contour the face, as well as reduce wrinkles, folds, and creases. This procedure can rejuvenate the soft tissue that has diminished with age and will restore facial fullness for a more youthful appearance.
The procedure talks approximately 40-minutes and is minimally invasive. The benefits of a non-surgical facelift are you receive instant results without the risks or downtime associated with a traditional facelift.
LIQUID FACELIFT VS. COSMETIC SURGERY
The Liquid Facelift – also known as an Instant Facelift – is a non-invasive procedure that takes less time in the office as well as minimal recovery time. Here’s how it stacks up against traditional cosmetic surgery.
PROCEDURE OF THE LIQUID FACELIFT VS. COSMETIC SURGERY
A Liquid Facelift is non-invasive, using natural liquid fillers to achieve the desired look and lift. It requires no anesthesia, unlike cosmetic surgery which requires either local or general anesthetic. Cosmetic surgery is an invasive procedure and involves the removal or tightening of muscles and skin as well as sutures that take time to heal.
PROCEDURE LENGTH OF THE LIQUID FACELIFT VS. COSMETIC SURGERY
A Liquid Facelift takes only 40 minutes while cosmetic surgery can take three to four hours and sometimes up to six hours depending on the procedure.
A Liquid Facelift recovery time is minimal with little to no downtime. Results from a Liquid Facelift are instantly noticeable with full results in about one week. Cosmetic surgery recovery takes in the range of three to four weeks before you can engage socially, and the results may take up to eight weeks to begin to appear, depending on the procedure.
While cosmetic surgery delivers results for patients looking to lift drooping or sagging skin, a Liquid or Instant Facelift results in less wrinkled or creased skin while adding volume to contour and restoring youthful volume to a gaunt or hollow facial appearance.
A Liquid Facelift offers instant results but will most likely need touchups after six months. Cosmetic surgery results last for eight to ten years, after which a minor surgical revision can be performed to maintain a youthful look.
The Liquid Facelift can be a great option for patients in their 30s and 40s while cosmetic surgery is often sought by those in their 50s.
SUMMARY OF COMPARISON BETWEEN LIQUID FACELIFT AND COSMETIC SURGERY
To summarize, a Liquid or Instant Facelift is a great option for patients in their 30s and 40s who are looking for instant results from a quick procedure without surgery or anesthesia. Cosmetic surgery is best suited to slightly older patients who are ready to take the next step and invest more money and recovery time but receive longer-lasting results.

WHAT IS BETTER, FACELIFT OR FILLERS?
Traditional facelifts and liquid facelifts each have their place in the world of cosmetics. No treatment is better than the other.
