As we age, our face loses youthful volume, resulting in sagging skin, jowls, deep lines and depressions. After age twenty-five our skin stops producing collagen, causing us to age more quickly as the years go on. But you don't need a facelift to restore a fuller, youthful appearance. Now there's a non-surgical, quick, affordable way to improve the appearance, and get back to your life the next day. With a liquid facelift at Indigo MedSpa that volume can be restored without a single incision! Now you can avoid the cost, pain and recovery time of surgery, but get comparable results. The liquid facelift can redefine a jaw line, erase deep lines, plump lips, fill in cheeks and smooth the forehead. The results can be instant and dramatic. View the before and after pictures below to see the amazing results.
A liquid facelift uses FDA-approved advanced dermal fillers and BOTOX Cosmetic® in combination to soften lines, lift brows, relax wrinkles and re-contour the face, leaving it smooth and younger-looking. The combination smooths wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, while making the skin around the cheeks and jaws more taut. Collagen is added to the weaker parts of the face, providing a lifting effect that improve the texture and tone of the skin and restores fullness. As the skin becomes plumper and firmer, the face changes to appear more rested and symmetrical.
BOTOX Cosmetic is used to block nerve impulses to the muscles which originally caused the lines, and to help prevent the breakdown of the new dermal filler which has been injected. The dermal fillers also cause the body to begin to produce more of its own collagen again, and adding BOTOX means clients can experience longer-lasting results.
Some results can be visible right after the procedure, with continued improvement over the next 3-6 weeks as the dermal filler is absorbed and the body produces new collagen in response to the dermal filler. Minimal bruising may occur but is uncommon. Some people experience common injection-site side effects such as slight swelling or sensitivity, but these quickly improve following the procedure. These treatments are administered by Dr. PreFontaine as an outpatient procedure, and clients can expect to return to their normal activities the next day.
The results can range from subtle to amazing, depending on the severity of the collagen loss and other factors which vary from person to person. One frequent comment made by those who have had the procedure is that their family and friends didn't know what had changed exactly, they just looked more rested and more beautiful. These natural-looking results are made possible by the advanced anti-aging ingredients in dermal fillers which can mimic the body's own collagen, and encourages the body to produce more natural collagen as well. As you can see by these before and after pictures, this procedure can really improve the look and feel of the skin and take years from the complexion.
