Is this better than a Face lift with surgery?

IN RIVERSIDE, CA

The term “liquid face lift” means different things to different people.
The general term of “ liquid face lift” often and most frequently refers to a non surgical enhancement using combination of the following or minimally invasive rejuvenation.
These non surgical alternatives include:
  1. skin tighenting: Lasers(fractionated or ablative CO2RE), topical Radio Frequency (ELOS Sublative or Sublime) or chemical peels.
  2. Facial augmentation: Fillers(hyaluronics: Juvederm, Vobella, and Restylane. etc)
  3. Collagen Stimulants: Sculptra, Retinae A
  4. Neuromodulators: (Botox, Dysport, etc)
  5. Skin discoloration: reds (V-Beam laser), browns
(Intense pulse light and hydroquinones)
Minimally invasive include the above and into addition:
  1. Enzymatic removal of fat under the chin: Kybella
  2. Under chin liposuction using local anesthesia
  3. Under chin skin tighenting injectable Radio Frequency ie Thermi
Therefore a traditional face lift (there again a surgical face face varies from a mini to s full) or liquid face lift is not “better” than each other. It really depends on the :
  1. The facial anatomy
  2. The aging process
  3. The acceptance of surgery
  4. The desired result
  5. The patients budget
I call combining multiple modalities wether it be non surgical, minimally invasive or short incision/rapid recovery surgery “Synergy”…. 1 + 1 + 1 does NOT equal 3 but 5, 6 or even 10!
