What is the 5 Year Liquid Facelift?

Would you like to restore the natural firmness and structure to your skin without surgery? A liquid facelift is an excellent way to reverse the effects of gravity and aging on the skin. A liquid facelift is a combination of cosmetic fillers that are used to restore youthful contours to an aging face, but the 5 year liquid facelift is a popular alternative. But what exactly is the 5 year facelift.

What is the 5 Year Liquid Facelift?

The 5 year liquid facelift refers to a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses Bellafill cosmetic injectable to lift and restore facial contours. It smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and restores youthful volume to the face, creating natural-looking facial rejuvenation results (learn more).

Bellafill is a unique injectable treatment that is comprised of purified collagen (20%), and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres (80%).

How Bellafill works

An ultra-fine needle is used to inject Bellafill into the skin. Bellafill is a dual-acting filler, as the collagen adds volume and provides lift to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while the PMMA microspheres provide a supportive base for the skin. Bellafill also helps to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. As new collagen develops, patients will notice a significant improvement in the firmness and elasticity of their skin.

The results gained with Bellafill are long-lasting because it provides a supportive base for the skin, and stimulates collagen.

Can Dermal Fillers Help With Facial Aging?

Can Dermal Fillers Help With Facial Aging?

Are your facial features starting to droop and sag? If so, there are a variety of dermal fillers on the market that can refresh your face, and restore a youthful look. But since facial aging is caused by such diverse factors, you may be wondering if dermal fillers can help with facial aging.

Signs of facial aging

Volume loss and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are classic signs of facial aging, and occur due to changes in the structural components of the skin. Over time, the skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are vital proteins that provide necessary support for the skin and keep it plump and elastic.

How dermal fillers help with facial aging

Dermal fillers help with facial aging by restoring youthful volume to areas such as the cheeks and temples, and softening lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers, particularly those derived from hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Restylane and Juvederm, are routinely used to restore facial volume and plump wrinkles. HA is a naturally occurring substance that works by attracting and retaining water. Therefore when it is injected into the hollow areas of the face it adds volume, and smooths wrinkles.

Fillers can also be used to augment lips that have lost volume due to age, and fill in deep creases and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers can provide beautiful results for patients wanting a non-surgical anti-aging solution.
