We often hear patients say they don’t recognize the face staring back at them in the mirror. The harsh truth they’re facing is that their outward appearance doesn’t reflect how they feel on the inside—young, vibrant, and full of life. So what’s to blame?
What ages our appearance the most? Is it lines and wrinkles? Sun damage and discoloration? Sagging skin?
Truthfully, it is a combination of all of these factors. But these factors are only symptoms of the root—facial volume loss.
Did you know that we lose about a teaspoon of volume from our faces every decade after the age of 20? So by the time you’ve reached your 50s, you’ve lost three teaspoons of volume; that’s equivalent to 15 syringes of filler!
The unwanted signs of aging affect us all, but you're not powerless in the fight against time. On the contrary, you have options for slowing the aging process and reversing its effects as they occur.
When you think about treating the symptoms of volume loss, like loose skin, do you think of a face lift? We’re pretty sure you do because many people are familiar with the procedure. A face lift is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin and tightens the underlying facial structure.
We love the face lift because it is effective, but not everyone is ready to go under the knife. If that’s you, we want you to know that there is an amazing non-surgical option to accomplish natural-looking rejuvenation—an EC Lift.
Utilizing a precise combination of injectables in strategic areas of the face, an EC lift can give you the results you want without a single incision. In fact, replacing lost facial volume has been called one of the best and most natural-looking ways to look younger!
Reversing the negative signs of aging can be achieved INSTANTLY with this method. The dermal fillers used in a liquid face lift work together to lift, plump, fill, smooth, and re-contour the face. By combining a variety of injectables, you can expect to see:
An EC lift utilizes two injectables—wrinkle relaxers to smooth and mildly lift and dermal filler to replace lost volume. Replacing lost volume doesn’t just give you back the plumpness your face had in your youth; it also lifts the skin. When we lose volume in our faces, the skin that sits atop loses its support structure and droops.
Wrinkle relaxers are prescription medications that temporarily relax the muscle in the treatment area, resulting in noticeably smoother skin and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
The most common dermal fillers used today for a liquid facelift are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a sugar molecule already prevalent in our skin as well as our joints for lubrication.
Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic, meaning it “loves water." Because of this, it attracts moisture into your skin where it is placed and holds it there for months! This water absorption plumps the skin and adds instant, lasting volume.
Although HA fillers are not permanent, they have an extremely high satisfaction rate. Our patients have reported that the injection process is surprisingly comfortable, and the results confidence-changing. In addition, one of the unique and comforting features of HA fillers is that they are completely reversible—something no other filler can afford.
It's never been easier to instantly refresh your look and effectively reduce the most frustrating signs of aging thanks to the EC lift.
