Liquid Facelift

Liquid Facelifts in Palm Springs

As we age, our appearance can quickly become worn and tired looking. Wrinkles, creases, lost facial definition and double chins are all side effects of the aging process that can quickly undermine an individual’s self-confidence, causing them to look older than their years.

But who said you can’t fight the aging process? With liquid facelifts from Palm Springs plastic surgeon Dr. Kato, patients’ former youthful appearance can be restored without surgery.

What is a Liquid Facelift?

When most people think of effective anti-aging procedures, most circle back to surgical facelifts – and for a good reason. Invasive procedures have long been the choice for patients looking to turn back the clock on aging and enjoy a youthful appearance a little while longer. However, the idea of undergoing surgery and recovery also keeps many patients from pursuing this option. Innovation in plastic surgery has led to the development of many non-invasive solutions that, when combined, allow patients to achieve the results similar to traditional surgery without extensive and invasive procedures.  

Liquid facelifts or non-surgical facelifts are a quickly growing cosmetic solution in which multiple injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers are combined and applied in a way that yields results like those of traditional facelifts. Each liquid facelift is tailored to an individual’s specific facial concerns, ensuring the final look is natural. Given that these non-surgical facelifts do not require weeks of recovery, many patients choose this alternative for its convenience.

Designing Your Non-Surgical Facelift

Whether surgical or liquid, all facelifts start with a consultation appointment with our Palms Springs specialist. During this visit, Dr. Kato conducts an in-depth evaluation, examining the condition of your skin and underlying tissue to identify which injectable solutions will provide you with the results you’re looking for.

Unlike surgical facelifts, in which invasive methods are used, liquid facelifts rely on a combination of injectables and dermal fillers to add volume and definition. As one of Palm Springs’ top facial rejuvenation experts, Dr. Kato is uniquely experienced in leveraging these non-surgical solutions to create results that stunning, beautiful, and natural. To help create best results, Dr. Kato incorporates the following into a liquid facelift strategy:

Treatments like Botox and Dysport target aging by tackling the cause of wrinkles: muscle contractions. Both solutions used a highly refined form of the toxin botulinum to temporarily freeze muscle contractions, preventing fine lines from appearing and existing wrinkles from deepening.

For patients who are experiencing loss of facial volume caused by a natural depletion in collagen and facial fat, Dr. Kato offers a wide range of dermal fillers. Each is designed to target wrinkles of different depths and in different parts of the face to create smooth and plump skin, avoiding the overtreated look. For many patients, drooping skin isn’t their only complaint about facial aging. Hollow cheeks or sunken features can also compromise an individual’s appearance, making them look years older than they are. In these cases, Sculptra is an excellent option to help fill facial hollows, helping patients look rested and rejuvenated.  

Is a double chin keeping you from feeling confident? Kybella is a non-surgical treatment often included in liquid facelifts to eliminate submental fullness. Like other injectables treatments, this solution may require a few treatment sessions; however, once the desired effect is achieved, Kybella provides long-lasting results, forgoing the need to undergo surgery to achieve the same defined facial profile.  

Preparing for Treatment with Dr. Kato

Another advantage of liquid facelifts is minimal preparation and recovery. While it is still important that patients follow all pre-treatment instructions, the individual procedures that make up the liquid facelift process do not require extensive downtime.

After their visit, patients can get back to their schedule without taking time off for recovery. Depending on your needs, your nonsurgical facelift treatment plan may require returning to our office for subsequent treatments or touch-ups. As with your first visit, these are often quick visits that can be completed in about an hour.
