As we begin to age, it is increasingly common to look in the mirror and struggle to recognize the older, more run-down appearance staring back at us as our own. Often, despite being physically active and mentally sharp, time takes a toll on our physical appearance, leaving us looking less buoyant and energized than we feel. Fortunately, we do not have to settle for an appearance that feels anything less than true. With facelifts, it is possible to reclaim the younger, more vibrant visage you remember. So, if you are considering a facelift, here is a brief overview of what you can expect from our two most popular types: a traditional facelift and a liquid facelift.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is one of the most traditional and trusted methods of achieving a younger look. Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure for reviving the skin and muscles of the face. Patients seeking a facelift typically notice relaxed skin in the face, deep fold lines, misplaced fat that often gathers in the cheeks and a double chin. During the surgery, your doctor will make incisions along the hairline before redistributing the misplaced facial fat, repositioning tissue and redraping the skin. Most facelifts require an approximately two-week recovery time, with the best results appearing after two to three months. An invasive surgical procedure such as a facelift is generally performed by a plastic surgeon.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
In contrast to a traditional facelift, a liquid facelift is a non-invasive method to enhance and re-energize a tired and aging face. Based on the concept of stimulating the body’s own collagen formation process, a liquid facelift leaves you with skin that is stronger, more toned, hydrated and refreshed than before. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, we use a combination of methods, including Ultherapy® Personalized Skin Care and ThermiTight®, as well as Botox® and a variety of fillers to give our patients the best results. One of the most attractive aspects of a liquid facelift is that it requires little downtime, you can see the results immediately, and enjoy the results for months or even years to come.
