Liquid Facelift Hawaii
While a full facelift has long been considered the gold standard for facial rejuvenation, men and women in Honolulu, Hawaii are increasingly seeking non-invasive options to enhance their appearance. A liquid facelift is a type of non-surgical facelift that can provide many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the surgery, anesthesia, and downtime; it is also a more affordable treatment option for many patients.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a combination of cosmetic injections—typically neuromodulators and dermal fillers—designed to mimic the effects of a surgical facelift. At Liquid Facelift Hawaii, board-certified plastic surgeon and facial expert, Dr. S. Larry Schlesinger, understands that no two patients are exactly alike, which is why he customizes all of his cosmetic injections to enhance each patient’s unique facial anatomy.
Dr. Schlesinger can artfully use FDA-approved fillers and neuromodulators like Radiesse and Botox to restore facial fullness in the cheeks and under-eyes, slim the jawline, correct drooping eyebrows, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles temporarily, helping you achieve a more youthful, refreshed look. Dr. Schlesinger has the expertise and experience necessary to evaluate your unique needs and to develop a treatment regimen that will enable you to attain your desired results.
Why Choose a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift allows you to lift and contour your face gently and without surgery in a convenient outpatient setting. Compared to facelift surgery, the liquid facelift method eliminates the need for anesthesia, surgery, stitches, and scars. There’s no risk of infection, bleeding, or hematoma; it’s less expensive and more natural; and best of all, there’s no downtime whatsoever.
What Cosmetic Injectables are Included in a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift may include a combination of the following cosmetic injections:
- Botox – Probably the most popular of the facial injectables, Botox reduces underlying muscle movement in the frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Repeat injections are necessary every 4-6 months to maintain the unwrinkled effect.
- Voluma – An FDA-approved injectable gel that adds volume to the cheek area, cheekbones, chin and mid-face. The treatment is known for providing a subtle lift that can make patients look up to five years younger.
- Dysport – Similar to Botox but with slightly quicker results, Dysport is very effective at temporarily removing forehead wrinkles. It also requires repeat injections every 4-6 months.
- Sculptra – Helps to restore healthy skin by thickening tissues beneath the skin’s surface. It can be combined with a traditional facelift for a more complete result. Sculptra usually requires 3 treatments over the course of 3 months, with results lasting 2-5 years.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
Over the years, your face begins to lose collagen, elastin, and fat. This loss of facial volume and elasticity contributes to the formation of wrinkles, creases, and folds, hollowed cheeks, and an overall aged appearance. If this process sounds familiar, you may be a good candidate for a liquid facelift.
During your personal facelift consultation at Liquid Facelift Hawaii, board-certified Honolulu plastic surgeon, Dr. Schlesinger, will discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns and assess your facial anatomy to help you determine whether you’re a good candidate for a surgical or non-surgical facelift, or a combination procedure. After determining which treatment option is best for you, Dr. Schlesinger will help you create a treatment plan specifically designed to address your unique concerns.
