Have you lost the extra weight, only to discover that your facial features look ages older than before? This is a common problem that many people face after weight loss. This is partially due to the fact that your skin stretches to accommodate weight gain in your face, but it doesn’t shrink back when you lose the weight, which causes sagging. Fortunately, there is a solution to younger looking skin after weight loss that doesn’t involve surgery! Knox Dermatology offers liquid nonsurgical facelift treatments that reverse aging impacts due to weight loss in a non-invasive way.
What is a Liquid Nonsurgical Facelift?
Like a traditional facelift, a liquid nonsurgical facelift will reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. However, the process of getting these results differs greatly! A liquid nonsurgical facelift is performed by injecting dermal fillers like Bellafill into your skin rather than a surgical procedure that involves cutting and sutures. Liquid facelifts are an effective way to achieve youthful looking skin, and can achieve just as good results as surgery.
How Does it Work?
At the beginning of your procedure, your doctor will apply a numbing solution to the areas of your face that will receive injections to reduce discomfort. After your skin is numb, a dermal filler will be injected into your skin over a 15 to 30-minute period. Just as the name implies, a dermal filler will fill up the space in your skin lacking volume due to weight loss. This will ultimately reduce the appearance of aging caused by sagging and wrinkling. Although you might experience slight stinging from the injections, the pain and recovery is minimal compared to surgery.
What Results Can I Expect?
With a liquid nonsurgical facelift, you will begin to see immediate results, unlike a surgical facelift. Surgical facelift patients won’t see improvement for up to three weeks due to the extreme swelling and bruising. Your results with Bellafill will last 5 years, or possibly longer.
If you’re ready to take years off your face after weight loss, a liquid facelift might be the answer for you! Liquid facelifts are not only quicker, less painful, and more natural looking than surgical facelifts, but also more inexpensive.
