What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a cosmetic treatment that allows patients to experience the benefits of a facelift without having to undergo major aesthetic surgery. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, the liquid facelift uses a special combination of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and replenish volume loss in the face. The results reveal a smoother, younger-looking profile that is subtle and natural. To compliment your results, oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint generally recommends incorporating PRP therapy or laser skin resurfacing.

Liquid Facelift Reviews
"I have been bothered for years by the bags on the top of my cheeks-sometimes called festoons. Over the last 3 years I had several consultations with Plastic Surgeons, all of them recommended Blepharoplasty even though I did not have much skin to correct. After researching online and at realself.com, only 50% if patients were happy with the surgery results and many had to have the surgery corrected. This is where I found out that you should always go to an Ocular Plastic Surgeon, who treats the eye area specifically, and Dr Myint was highly recommended. From the moment I called I knew that I was in good hands. He is located at Nevada Eye and Ear and handles many eye surgeries. His receptionist Michelle is knowledgeable and very helpful and she fit me in the schedule for a consultation right away. I was so impressed with Dr Myint, He asked me what I was bothered by and what result I expected. He listened to me and I felt that he truly individualized his treatment recommendation to my needs. I was fully expecting to hear that I needed the upper and lower Blepharoplasty that all other Doctors had recommended. I was shocked to hear that he felt that doing the surgery could cause me to have an exposed or droppy lower eyelid that could not be corrected and could result in dry eye and other serious problems. He also felt that the skin on the upper eyelid could be tightened with a C02 laser, but that should only be done in the winter months to avoid any sun exposure during healing. To give me some correction he gave me Botox to lift the eyebrows and eyelids as well as 1CC of voluma to each cheek to flll out the area and take away some of the sagging. The results were immediate. I was so pleased and amazed. I had no pain, no brusing and no problems. I feel better when I look in the mirror, and I have received many compliments on how "rested and young" I look. Very happy and the Voluma can last up to 2 yrs. It was a bit pricey, but No surgery, No complications! I strongly recommend going to Dr Myint, he is kind, honest and highly skilled. Do not go to Medspas that discount Fillers, and have technicians that only receive minimal training-this is your FACE! If Dr Myint does recommend any surgery for me in the future I feel confidant that it is because it is in my best interest. I have complete faith and trust in him. Also appreciated that he had me return for a free follow-up to make sure that I was happy with the results and tweek anything if needed."- D.S. / Yelp / Sep 04, 2015
Candidates for a liquid facelift
Ideal candidates for a liquid facelift are patients who want to address common signs of aging without having to experience the recovery time and large expense of aesthetic surgery. Liquid facelifts are often a great option for people who want to smooth mild to moderate wrinkles in their upper, mid, or lower face. This procedure can also help restore volume to deflated cheeks and sunken eyes for a fuller, youthful-looking contour.
liquid facelift treatment
Before your liquid facelift, Dr. Myint will discuss your aesthetic goals to determine which combination of injectables should be used to achieve the desired results. The actual procedure for both relaxers and fillers is the same process, beginning with Dr. Myint marking the sites where he'll place injections. Next, your skin will be cleansed and a local anesthetic will be applied to the target area. Using a small needle and syringe, Dr. Myint will make injections in the marked areas. The liquid facelift procedure is typically done in-office within a matter of minutes.
after your session
The fillers and wrinkle relaxers used at our Las Vegas practice are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are considered safe for this procedure. The effects of dermal fillers are usually observed immediately, while relaxer products can sometimes take three or more days to reveal optimal results. If you're also interested in additional plastic surgery treatments, we may advise you to wait a few days after cosmetic injections. The longevity of your results depends on the relaxers and fillers chosen for your liquid facelift. Some liquid facelift products only last a few months, while others last much longer. Touch-up sessions can be scheduled at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic to maintain your results.
