The face is one of the most prominent areas to show signs of aging. Time, environmental elements, and facial expressions are some of the causes of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Loose folds of skin and deep crevices may also be present, especially around the mouth. While many people are probably familiar with facelift surgery, many people may not be aware that there are non-surgical procedures available as well. Dr. Ronald Caniglia, a leading Scottsdale plastic surgeon, offers a liquid facelift, which utilizes cosmetic injections and dermal fillers to give patients a more youthful and revitalized appearance.
The Liquid Facelift Procedure
Patients who would like to avoid the risk or lengthy recovery period that is involved with surgical procedures should consider a liquid facelift. Through the use of cosmetic injections and dermal fillers, Dr. Caniglia is able to help a patient achieve their desired appearance. The liquid facelift can address typical signs of aging such as wrinkles and loose skin. Dr. Caniglia may combine cosmetic injections and any number of dermal fillers to provide patients with their desired results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is probably the most well known cosmetic injectable. Patients receive BOTOX® injections when they have concerns with wrinkles or creases, usually on the forehead or around the eyes or lips. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a filler; it simply relaxes the muscles. Some patients may be hesitant to receive BOTOX® treatment because they are fearful of its ingredients or believe it will temporarily paralyze their face. The truth is, BOTOX® is a safe product and when it is applied correctly, a patient has control and freedom of all expression.
There are many dermal fillers available. Each product has its own benefits and drawbacks. Dr. Caniglia will recommend a product or combination of dermal fillers that are best suited to meet your needs. Any dermal filler procedure can be completed in one short office visit. Depending on the case, a procedure may require one or several injections to be made in the area to be treated. Dermal fillers can fill in loose folds of skin, plump areas of the face, and fill creases to reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles. One point to keep in mind with dermal fillers is that the results will only last for a limited time. Treatment will need to be repeated at regular intervals if you wish to maintain your new appearance. Any of these treatments can be repeated as necessary to keep results sustainable.
Alternatives to the Liquid Facelift
For our patients in Scottsdale, facelift, browlift, and other facial plastic surgery procedures are available. Results from surgery are considered permanent and can be used to correct signs of aging all over the face, as with a traditional facelift, or can be used to focus on specific areas of the body with procedures such as a brow lift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery. Dr. Caniglia can answer any questions you may have about these surgical procedures.
