As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.
The younger the face, the firmer the skin and the more defined the contours. The face is symmetrical and typically 'V' shaped.

Regardless of how good our genes are, all types of skin eventually lose their tone. Proportions shift and volume reduces. Cheeks sink downwards, the chin goes limp and the face becomes broader towards the bottom. The result: the youthful 'V' slowly turns upside down and our age becomes increasingly visible - regardless of how young we feel.
A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting advanced dermal fillers, such as RADIESSE® to lift and contour facial features. A non-surgical Liquid Face Lift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:
- Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
- Reduced wrinkles, creases, line or folds
- Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
- A more rested, energetic look
- A friendlier smile
In some patients the goal of a non surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure is to lift the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. For example, under eye bags and dark circles can be masked by using Liquid Facelift techniques; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas; corners of the mouth can be lifted; and bumps on the nose can be hidden. Many of these conditions and contouring procedures are discussed on this web site, as well as treatment procedures for a variety of wrinkles, folds and lines.
RADIESSE® is a volumising injectable dermal filler that restores volume and adds structure to the skin. The unique, innovative and safe gel formula contains calcium microspheres (CaHa) which stimulate the production of your own natureal collagen.
Treatments typically take around 30-90 minutes and the discomfort level is minimal. The results are instant and can last up to 12 months in many patients with a single treatment.
RADIESSE® is broken down by the body and naturally metabolised over time. It is clinically proven to be effective and safe with very high patient satisfaction ratings.
More than 3 million packs of RADIESSE® have been used by practitioners and patients worldwide since 2004. In 2006 the US FDA approved RADIESSE® for soft tissue augmentation.
