What Products Are Used?
A liquid facelift is a combination of dermal fillers, such as Perlane, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvéderm, Voluma as well as muscle relaxants such as BOTOX . These are injected directly into the areas that need reshaping, lifting and additional volume in order to reduce signs of aging. Dr. Marosan uses very fine blunt cannulas instead of needles, thus making the injections painless and without bruising. Botox is commonly injected into the forehead to soften the horizontal forehead lines, above the brows for the frown lines or number 11's, around the eyes to diminish crow’s feet. Fillers are injected deep into the cheeks to lift and volumize them, as well as the upper nasolabial folds, tear troughs, temporal hollows, prejowl area and marionette lines. Some of these products are also used to enhance the appearance of the lips.
The Silhouette InstaLift uses a dissolvable suture with small dissolvable cones to lift and tighten the skin of the face and neck. The combination of products can take years off the facial appearance. The results following a liquid facelift can last from 1-3 years.

During/After the Procedure
Treatment is designed to address an individual’s specific facial condition. Local anesthetic may be applied to ease the patient’s discomfort with the pricking from injections. The fillers are injected with very small blunt cannulas deep under the muscle to prevent lumps and bruising. Because Dr. Marosan uses blunt cannula for injections, there's minimal to no pain or bruising during or after the procedure.There may be swelling and redness on treated areas, mild bruising may occasionally be present, but these will fade after a few hours. There is no downtime with this procedure, but since it combines several injections, patients must avoid any pressure on the face area and strenuous activities are restricted.

Liquid Facelift FAQs
All products used are approved by the FDA and backed with comprehensive testing. Prior to treatment, details of each product will be discussed and reiterated in the treatment plan. It is important to find a reputable injector who understands how to use each product so that a safe and effective outcome can be attained.
How Many Reinjections?
It depends on how long the patient wishes to maintain the achieved facial enhancement. Muscle relaxants, such as BOTOX, normally only last up to 4 months. Derma fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Injections are repeated when the practitioner and the patient feels its necessary, which is usually around the time the visible signs of aging slowly reappear. Even though some consider this a "high maintenance" way to maintain a youthful appearance, many patients feel that this outweighs the risks of invasive procedures such as a traditional facelift.
A liquid facelift significantly helps in reshaping and regaining youthful contours of the face. Skin irregularities such as age or sunspots may be corrected with additional treatments that target the upper layers of the skin. Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, microneedling are some options to consider combining with the injectables chosen for treatment.
