Recently more and more attention has been directed to the idea of a liquid facelift. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Balikian and his Aesthetic injectors can use injectable fillers specifically meant for specific parts of the face to restore volume, give lift and rejuvenate the face overall. Putting it all together leaves a face that is in balance and less saggy.
Cheeks can be lifted with Voluma. Nasolabial folds, lip wrinkles and marionette lines can be filled with Juvederm. The lips themselves can be augmented and made to look younger in the corners of the mouth. Even hollowness to the temples and below the cheeks for gaunt patients can be filled with Sculptra. This is the complete face makeover using no surgery.
To get a great result, you need to go to an injector that is experienced, artistic and conservative. Dr. Balikian is a Certified Allergan Injector Trainer and teaches other doctors and nurses on proper injection technique. Given his experience and innovative techniques, he can create an individualized liquid facelift treatment plan that fits your face and your needs.
We advise patients to avoid using blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Omega-3 Fish Oils for one week before any injection to help decrease the risk of bruising. In addition, avoiding alcohol a few nights before injection and taking the herbal medication arnica may help decrease the risk of bruising which is minimal.
