San Ramon Liquid Facelift

As we age, facial wrinkles and folds begin to show as collagen beneath the skin’s surface starts to naturally break down. As a result, we experience an increasing sagging of our face and neck that only continues as we grow older. This ultimately results in a loss of bony structural support on our eyebrows, upper cheeks, and jaws/mandibles, also known as the so-called “Three Pillars of Beauty.” 

With Sculptra liquid facelift you can restore these three pillars of beauty and achieve a more natural-looking appearance, all without giving yourself away. Also known simply as a liquid facelift, Sculptra is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen and restoring youth. 

A Sculptra liquid facelift is highly versatile and can be customized depending on your unique aesthetic goals and make you appear years younger. A liquid facelift can erase fine lines, wrinkles and fill in lost volume for a more youthful, well-rested complexion. The best part about a liquid facelift is that it’s minimally invasive with fewer risks and complications than surgical facelifts, and there’s no downtime required.

What Is A Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift works gradually, resulting in a more youthful-looking appearance without making it look as though you have had work done. With precision and expertise of Sculptra injections at California Dermatology Care, Dr. Ting can help you better defy the force of gravity by restoring bony structural support via stimulation of collagen production in various strategic locations of your face. 

A liquid facelift helps correct the shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that appear as we age by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient of Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid which is a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades to replenish collagen. As a result, you will achieve a rejuvenated and lifted appearance thanks to higher cheekbones, subtle brow lift, softer smile lines and diminished jowl lines.

Welcome to the new age of anti-age. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic is an average of three injection sessions over a few months, and a liquid facelift can last up to two to three years, allowing you to enjoy your liquid facelift results longer than any other injectable with natural-looking, youthful and firm skin.

Benefits of A Liquid Facelift

Compared to surgical procedures like a traditional facelift, a liquid facelift offers many options and is highly customizable without the downtime, risks and costs of a surgical facelift. Depending on your lifestyle, age and goals, a liquid facelift can address many different concerns while still giving natural and subtle results.

A liquid facelift can correct mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles in younger patients who wish to get ahead of the game with signs of aging. For older patients who aren’t ready to commit to a surgical procedure, a liquid facelift can fill in areas of the face that lack volume and elasticity giving the overall look of a firmer, more youthful complexion.  

Many patients prefer a liquid facelift to a surgical facelift since a liquid facelift is much less expensive. With a liquid facelift, you get to choose the areas you wish to address and those you wish to leave untouched and can avoid the costs associated with an operating room and anesthesia. Even better, with a liquid facelift, there are no stitches or scarring. 

How Does A Liquid Facelift Work?

Sculptra Aesthetic liquid facelift is an FDA-approved injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid which has been safely used for the past 25 years in resorbable stitches to stimulate collagen and wound healing. Sculptra liquid facelift can be injected into the skin to diminish facial wrinkles by gradually stimulating collagen to actually fill in and restore fullness to wrinkles, lines and folds in the mid to lower face.

Sculptra liquid facelift results can last up to two to three years and it is the only facial injectable that can safely restore facial volume. The poly-L-lactic acid in Sculptra is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning it is a material that does not harm the body and can be safely broken down by the body. Injectable poly-L-lactic acid has also been widely used in Europe for close to a decade for cosmetic treatment. 

FAQs: Liquid Facelift

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift in San Ramon?

Good candidates for a liquid facelift are anyone who is in good health and has concerns about fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss, and have begun to show signs of aging in their face. A liquid facelift is a good anti-aging treatment for those who do not wish to have a lengthy recovery, scarring and costs associated with a surgical facelift. 

What Can Sculptra Liquid Facelift Treat?

Sculptra liquid facelift injections can treat facial loss and fine lines and wrinkles in the lower face and chin area including:

  • Deep folds between the nose and mouth, or smile lines
  • Marionette lines, or the lines that frame the mouth
  • Chin wrinkles 

How Many Treatments of Sculptra Liquid Facelift Do I Need?

Most patients see optimal results with an average of three Sculptra treatments over the course of a few months. 

Does a Liquid Facelift Hurt?

Before your liquid facelift, one of our trained injectors will apply a topical numbing cream to the area to make the treatment more comfortable. There may be minor discomfort, but it’s nothing too painful and the treatment itself usually takes no more than an hour. Many patients even schedule their liquid facelift during their lunch break. 

How Long Does It Take to See Liquid Facelift Results?

After your liquid facelift, you will gradually see results over time as collagen is produced, with the most immediate results taking at least four to six weeks. The best results of a liquid facelift are seen four to six months post-treatment. 

What Is Liquid Facelift Recovery Like?

A liquid facelift has minimal downtime and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Some swelling, tenderness, bruising and redness may be apparent after the injections, however, this subsides within a few days. 

We encourage patients to ice the treated areas to help with any discomfort. It’s also important to massage the areas that have been injected during the days following your liquid facelift. A five-minute massage five times a day helps distribute the Sculptra injection throughout the injection site.

Is a Liquid Facelift Safe? 

Yes, a liquid facelift is safe and minimally invasive with no downtime. The active ingredient in Sculptra injections has been used for decades in the medical field for wound healing. Sculptra injections are both biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning that if you choose to not continue with a liquid facelift, the results will naturally wear off over time. 

How Often Do I Need Sculptra Injections to Maintain Results?

Most patients see results that last up to two to three years after their initial series of Sculptra injections and to maintain results, patients usually schedule one maintenance session a year. 

What Makes a Liquid Facelift Different from Other Facial Procedures?

The Sculptra liquid facelift is often confused with dermal fillers, however, unlike other injectables, a Sculptra liquid facelift doesn’t just fill in lost volume, it actually stimulates collagen production. 

Unlike dermal fillers which are injected in strategic spots, Sculptra liquid facelift is injected in an even pattern throughout the area, leading to its gradual, natural-looking results. Sculptra liquid facelift also cannot be undone or dissolved as dermal fillers can, and patients must wait for the results to dissolve over time. 

Who Should Not Get a Liquid Facelift?

Patients should not get Sculptra liquid facelift injections if they have any of the following conditions:

  • Pregnancy, or are planning to become pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • History of keloids or other scarring
  • Any active injections such as hives, rashes, cysts or sores on the area to be addressed
  • Allergy to poly-L-lactic acid
