TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Immediate facial rejuvenation without surgery can be accomplished in less than an hour with a "liquid facelift" that targets specific areas of patient concern, according to Nebil Bill Aydin, MD, assistant professor of Surgery at the New York Medical College, attending surgeon at the Westchester Medical Center, and a Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon with the New York Group for Plastic Surgery.

"Many people want to reduce lines on their face that add years, or eliminate under eye 'bags' that give a tired appearance, but they may not have the time, funds or need for a surgical facelift," said Dr. Aydin. "With a liquid facelift they can achieve their goal of looking younger and refreshed with an office visit on their lunch hour, and avoid the recovery time associated with surgery."

Signs of facial aging are caused by a combination of biological and environmental factors that include:

  • Sun damage that causes fine lines and brown spots
  • Natural loss of collagen that results in thinner, looser skin
  • Gravity which causes skin to sag around the lower jaw ("jowls") and cheek bones
  • Smoking which causes deep and fine lines, particularly around the mouth and lip area

A liquid facelift consists of injectable treatments that may include a combination of neurotoxins (Botox or Dysport), fillers (Juvederm or Restalyne), and collagen builder (Sculptra), injected in strategically targeted areas of the face. The goal with a liquid facelift is a refreshed, younger but still natural look that is achieved by reducing wrinkles and fine lines; plumping up tissue beneath the skin to decrease sagging/drooping; and improving symmetry, or balance, of facial features. A liquid facelift can address:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Furrow lines between the eyebrows,
  • Fine lines around the eyes ("crow's feet")
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds),
  • Fine lines around the mouth ("pucker" lines),
  • Sagging cheeks and jawline, or "jowls"

"The impact of aging and sun damage differ greatly for each person, so the combination of rejuvenating treatments, and where and how to administer them, has to be tailored for each patient," said Dr. Aydin. "It's rewarding for the patient to see an almost immediate improvement in appearance, and additional benefits show over the next week or so depending on type and extent of treatments done. Plus, they can head back to work or out socially right afterward."
