A Liquid facelift involves the use of injectable fillers to gently lift and contour the face. These fillers are injected into and underneath the skin to smooth, lift, volumize, and tighten the skin, while transforming the look of the face. Dermal fillers reduce wrinkles and creases and improve the overall texture of the skin. A Liquid facelift in San Francisco is a highly effective and minimally invasive alternative to surgical facial rejuvenation. It also has the advantage that there is no down time.
As we get older, we do not produce so much collagen and this means that the skin begins to sag and form wrinkles. A surgical facelift will lift and tighten the skin, thereby ironing out the wrinkles. However, by replacing the missing collagen and using fillers to boost its production once more, we can achieve the same effect, but without using any invasive surgery.
A liquid facelift in San Francisco uses these liquid fillers literally to fill in the spaces that have been left by the missing collagen and this is the way in which it can remove fine lines and wrinkles, because it has the effect of pumping them up once more.
Our Dr. Alex Rabinovich is a leading cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco and also uses injectables such as Radiesse, Botox, and Juvederm. Radiesse for a liquid facelift in San Francisco is made of the same minerals that are found in our bones so there is very unlikely to be any allergic reaction to them. It is in the form of microspheres in a biocompatible gel and doesn’t contain any human or animal products, so the good news is that you can have a treatment on your initial visit because you won’t need any pre-treatment skin testing. Radiesse can be used on many areas of the face, including the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, and depressed scars.
The treatment can be done under a local anesthetic and only takes half an hour. The results are visible immediately and can last for months or even years. Any side effects such as bruising or swelling are minimal and will fade after a few days.
