As we age, we naturally lose volume in our face and body. When we look closer at this phenomenon, it is clear that facial volume loss occurs on many layers. In the skin, it is due to reduced and altered collagen and elastic tissue. However, our facial fat pads (cheeks) become flattened, giving us a tired and older appearance. Furthermore, motion lines occur in the form of frown lines, crow’s feet and marionette lines. The latest trend in large metropolitan areas is to non-surgically address all of these changes with what we refer to as “liquid face lift”. In this technique, Dr. Buscaglia and Dr. Brauer use multiple cosmetic dermal fillers (Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse and Boletero) to treat facial folds and replace lost volume in the upper face. Also, cosmetic muscle relaxers Dysport, Xeomin and BOTOX) are used in the upper face to treat crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines. When this approach is used, it can be quite dramatic and patients usually appear 5 years younger. This type of treatment usually last 6-18 months and looks quite natural.
