The “liquid facelift” restores facial volume, reduces wrinkles, and provides a degree of facial rejuvenation. The liquid is typically an injectableDermal filler (Restylane, Juvederm and others) in conjunction with Botox Injection which relax facial lines.
Liquid facelifts are most beneficial in restoring lost volume in cheeks, lifting the cheekbones, redefining the jaw-line, minimizing the appearance of jowls, lifting sagging brows, removing under eye dark circles and diminishing lines and wrinkles.
On average, the results of a liquid facelift will last approximately one year. However, duration of any surgical or minimially invasive procedure will depend on the degree of correction and amount/type of filler material used.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is truly a remarkable breakthrough in technology, offering a non-invasive alternative to a surgical face lift. HIFU uses the power of Ultrasound to safely lift and tighten the skin. It also helps to improve the tone and all the features of your face such as your eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin and skin also making it a viable alternative to Botox, with the benefit of being able to maintain facial expression.
Ultherapy is an energy device for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound. The skin’s response to this energy is to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

This depends on the age of the patient at the time of the procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. But it can last anywhere between a year to two years. Results can be prolonged with additional filaments and your doctor will suggest if this is required.
A thread lift is more suited to men and women between the ages of 40 and 60. The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area.
Thread lifts may cause minor side effects such as infection, bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness and slight asymmetry. Usually any side effects should disappear within a few days if done by a professional doctor.Also, if you are not happy with the result, it can be reversed.
