Q: Hi Dr. Perkins. I am ready to explore facelift options and since I can only take limited time off from my job for recovery, I am wondering if you perform any facelifts that are less invasive with a shorter recovery time?

A: A facelift is a big commitment and if you feel you do not have adequate time for recovery, then exploring other options is a smart idea. Recently I introduced the Layered Liquid Lift at Evolutions Medical Spa Santa Barbara – a luxurious, day-spa that I founded for people to receive medical grade aesthetic treatments.
The Layered Liquid Lift is a non-surgical facelift done by using various injectable dermal fillers in a unique layering technique that transforms the face from the inside out. The Layered Liquid Lift will plump the skin, filling in wrinkles, restoring fullness and enhancing facial features, similar to what a surgical facelift can do. The procedure takes about 90 minutes and lasts about 12 to 18 months.
The benefit of the Layered Liquid Lift is that it will give you a preview of what you can expect with a traditional surgical facelift without having to undergo the surgery and recovery. A great option for you until you feel ready to commit to a surgical facelift.
