What is a liquid facelift?

A liquid facelift has not been clearly defined, just like a mini facelift and a full facelift and all the types of facelifting. All of these terms can mean different things to different surgeons around the world. What I have been exposed to, in regards to a liquid facelift, includes using a combination of Botox and dermal fillers.

Botox or Dysport can be used in certain areas of the face to allow your facial muscles to lift the face in a subtle way. When botox is applied to the eye and forehead area, you can subtly elevate the eyebrows. When Botox is used around the eyes and closer to the smiling muscles you can prevent the smiling muscles from elevating the mouth when a person smiles in such a way that the folds around the mouth will not be as prominent and crows feet also will be lessened.

Dermal fillers can be used to fill up the lost volume in the face, which can reverse the signs of aging within the face. A liquid facelift will only subtly change the face and will not be as dramatic as a facelift as it is done in the traditional way.

Another way of lifting the face through liquids is through facial fat transfer in the same way that dermal fillers can fill up the face. But facial fat transfer can be a way to more dramatically revolumize the face and reverse aging.

I refined an amazing volumizing procedure called “the YoungLift”.  This is an innovative technique that volumizes your face to bring out the younger and natural you without looking like you had something done.  This is not a facelift and requires no incisions.  Only pinpoint puncture sites are used and these heal imperceptibly.  The YoungLift can be done without general anesthesia and without drains, and large bandages.  You also have a lot less downtime and discomfort compared with traditional facelift procedures.  Dr Young employs the very best techniques from around the world into one volumizing procedure and he uses his internationally acclaimed understanding of facial beauty to create the youthful volume you once had.

Dr Young is located in Bellevue near Seattle, Washington
