news-blog-facial-fillers-vs-facelift-which-is-betterA “liquid facelift” is a popular term for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. A combination of dermal fillers, volumizers and Botox can provide a noninvasive solution for a refreshed, rejuvenated look. A liquid facelift works best on faces without significant laxity or advanced signs of aging.

Facial fillers and Botox work best to correct the following areas:

  • Creases in the forehead and brow.
  • Wrinkles around the eyelids and lips.
  • Deep folds around the nose (nasolabial folds) and corners of the lips (melolabial folds).
  • Loss of volume in the lips.
  • Loss of volume in the cheeks.
  • Loss of volume in the temples.
  • Dark circles under the eyelids and tear troughs.

A facelift is by far and away the best option to turn back the hands of time in the lower face and neck. A lower lift is the ideal treatment for improving a sagging jaw line, falling cheeks and a blunted neckline. There are no lasers, ultrasonic devices or peels that can reverse the effects of time and gravity better than a lower lift.

A lower facelift is designed to treat the following areas:

  • Jowls
  • Loss of a neckline
  • Accumulation of skin
  • and fat under the chin.
  • Wrinkles and sagging along the jaw and in the neck.
