Treating Loose Skin
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses a personally customized set of injectable fillers to enhance someone’s natural features and add volume or fullness to the face. During our initial assessment with one of our highly trained medical team, we will carefully discuss all areas of the face that will undergo rejuvenation. We use highly-skilled techniques to mimic bone restoration, using highly-sought after, trademarked techniques of injecting to bring facial balance to the face. We utilize cannula techniques with a minimum of four puncture holes for minimal bruising.
You will notice sunken areas of the face, loose and hanging skin, and fine lines will be softened, leaving you with an overall more balanced look.
Results of Liquid Facelifts
You will notice a more youthful appearance:
- The temples will appear less hollow
- Your lower eyelid will appear less hollow and smooth of fine lines and creases
- Sagging cheeks will appear lifted and restored
- Nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth, also called marionette lines, will look softer
- Creases beside the mouth that cause jowls will look smoother and lifted
Is a Liquid Facelift right for me?
Depending on your goals, a liquid facelift can address a variety of concerns to make you appear years younger.
When performed by a skilled injector, this procedure can:
- erase fine lines and wrinkles
- give you more contoured cheeks or plumper lips
- provide lift to areas where you have lost volume
- make you look more alert and well-rested, and
- define your chin and jawline.
You can also enhance your liquid facelift with the use of a neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport to enhance the overall look. Neurotoxins will soften fine lines by relaxing facial muscles, reducing frown lines and smoothing crow’s feet for a naturally refreshed and healthy look.
Microneedling with PRP & RF
At Walnut Creek Aesthetics in Walnut Creek, we are happy to announce that we use the Secret RF and Morpheus8 minimally invasive modular RF fractional treatments for face and body for all of our microneedling procedures.
A popular skin revitalization treatment, traditional microneedling (which we also offer!), uses a special hand-piece with ultra-fine needles to create very tiny wounds (called micro-injuries) as it passes across the area. This stimulates the natural healing response of your body to produce collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. This healing rejuvenates the top layers of your skin, eliminates surface scarring, and softens fine lines and wrinkles. These benefits can also be enhanced with the use of platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP or exosomes, and stem cells.
Microneedling with RF
The addition of advanced RF energy to the microneedling treatment provides for even deeper, more effective creation of the anti-aging protein building blocks of your skin. The same hand-piece also delivers the RF heat energy to the underlying layers, adjusting the needle depth for the thickness and texture of the skin. RF microneedling treatments are fully customized for each patient’s needs and skin type.
The combination of both technologies in a single treatment revitalizes both the epidermis and dermis for maximum natural-looking results.
What is the recovery time
Recovery Time is very minimal with all our treatments at Walnut creek Aesthetics. As with any injectable treatment, you may experience mild swelling at the injection site, redness or bruising. Chemical peels generally leave your skin red and hot initially, and then result in about 2 to 5 days of dryness to the skin. Our Walnut Creek Microneedling treatments have no downtime at all. You may expect mild redness to the face and warmth for about 2-3 hours after.
PDO Threads are made of a synthetic biodegradable material. They are also the same compound used during surgeries to close incisions. The threads are absorbed by the body after the treatment, leaving collagen stimulation behind where the threads were placed. This stimulation of collagen will leave the skin lifted, tightened and smoother, giving you an overall more radiant glow. PDO threads can create an instant lift, leaving you feeling more self-confident without any incisions on downtime.
Areas of treatment include:
- Cheeks and nasal-labial folds
At Walnut Creek Aesthetics our highly-trained medical aesthetician will create a customized treatment plan for your skin condition and type. our highly-trained team will assess your skin and decide what treatment is best for you.
