Liquid Facelift


There is no reason to have plastic surgery anymore.
We have available nowadays a wonderful array of products and techniques. We use a combination for best results: 3 neuromodulators, PDO sutures and all fillers.
A thorough consultation is needed while the person is still and animated.
The PDO sutures are going strong and help lift the face and body without surgery.
Smooth sutures are mostly for increasing collagen production. There are 2 kinds: smooth plain and twisted threads which give more volume. Smooth threads are very useful in helping crepy skin and creating more collagen production. They are also great for obliterating lipstick lines. Meshes are produced in the face and other part of the body with the smooth threads. Results are best seen in 4 to 6 weeks when the sutures are reabsorbed. Twisted threads are best for lip contouring and to erase the nasolabial folds.
The barbed sutures are doing mostly the lifting and are helpful for jowls and neck.
2 to 3 barbed sutures are needed on each side of the face. Once the face is lifted , less filler is needed. Sutures ale also used for lifting body parts like arms, décolleté, knees an even the butt.
Fillers put the volume in cheeks , temples , chin and in the body.
Radiesse is the thickest filler and is optimal for mature people and for males who require volume and lifting. It is the best product for the jaw line and for hand restoration.
Juvaderm has 2 kinds of products. Plain Juvaderm is best for lips while the Juvaderm Plus is great for voluminizing any area like cheeks, temples and chin. We even use this product to reshape the nose, like shorten and straighten it. A new Juvaderm , called Voluma which is great for the cheeks, temples and chin. Volbella is a filler just for the lips. I like Voluma as it makes a beautiful cheek!
Restylane is a little thicker than Juvaderm and is used for in people who want more defined lips. There are new Restylane products: Restylane Silk which is a thinner product to be used for the lipstick lines and under eye treatment (pouches and dark
circles). Restylane Lyft is more robust and can be used deep in the face. It provides a lot of volume. Restylane Define and Restylane Refine are the 2 knew kids on the block. They fill very naturally.
Bolatero is also a thinner product like Restylane Silk to be used under the eyes.
Sculptra is another filler that I do not use much but which is a subtle voluminizer
needing several treatments But it works well in the body as well.
We use all 3 modulators: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. They are great for small wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, around the eyes. They also lift the eyes and the corners of the mouth. They help with the neck lines and with the jaw line.
My favorites are: the PDO sutures, Radiesse, Juvaderm, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk. I also use Dysport the most. I use all 3 modalities and the results are amazing!
Remember what Helena Rubinstein said: “There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.”
Dr. Merey says: “Your face deserves the best treatment as your body can be hidden with clothes, but you cannot walk around with a ski mask all day long.”
