Are Dermal Fillers a Good Alternative to Facelifts?

Do you like the idea of a facelift but aren’t exactly jumping at the thought of undergoing an invasive surgery?  Perhaps it’s not just the thought of going under the knife that makes you nervous.  Maybe it’s that you don’t have the time to recover.

Well, it’s time to introduce yourself to the best alternative to traditional facelift procedure – a liquid facelift using dermal fillers!*

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane use the power of hyaluronic acid to provide temporary volume to  redefine key facial contours.*  Hyaluronic acid is also used to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin, which creates smoother, younger-looking skin.*

When injected , dermal fillers can tighten and tone the skin, creating similar results to a traditional facelift.*  Dermal fillers can smooth away lines and wrinkles, as well as add temporary volume to the cheek area which tends to droop as we age.*  There are some dermal filler injections that are created for lip augmentations, to minimize the appearance of smoker’s lines.

While dermal fillers won’t create the exact same results as a traditional facelift procedure, it can be useful for clients with mild to moderate skin sagging and wrinkles.
