Liquid Facelift – Signature Q-Lift
One day, somewhere during our late 30s or early 40s, we look in the mirror and can struggle to recognise the face staring back at us. We get older every day but sometimes that one day can have a huge impact when we really start to notice it. When that day comes, don’t panic. Regardless of what the cosmetic companies will tell you, no cream or lotion will lift or firm your skin, but you also don’t need to go under the knife to regain your youthful appearance, you can opt for a liquid facelift.
The Signature Q-Lift is a Liquid Facelift exclusively designed by Doctor Q. It is a revolutionary, non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. It has all the benefits of a surgical facelift but without the cost, invasiveness or recovery time. Our treatment allows men and women to see the rejuvenating effects within an hour, with little or no downtime and, more importantly, there is no invasive surgery to worry about. Instead, an injectable filler is placed under the skin to remove wrinkles, correct facial volume loss and lift jowls thus reinvigorating your appearance. It can be combined with PRP, micro-needling and Silhouette Soft threads.
Before the treatment you will be taken through the procedure by Dr Qureshi. He will listen to your expectations and develop a tailored treatment plan to meet those goals. During the procedure, we can apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the area, but this isn’t always necessary. Our Cosmetologist Doctor Q will then inject dermal fillers into the face to help reverse the signs of ageing. Injections are targeted to specific areas of the face to give you the desired youthful result. It should only take around 30 minutes.
Q. Who would benefit the most from this procedure?
A. Liquid facelifts work best for a range of people. Young men and women who are in their late 30s or early 40s who are starting to notice changes in their appearance but don’t want, or need, the surgical alternative. It also works well for people in good shape but who have very little body fat in their face. The process also caters well for those who have had a facelift in the past but still don’t look as youthful as they’d like. This happens because the initial facelift probably did not address the age-related volume loss or the reduction in skin elasticity.
Q. Which products do you use?
A. Any injectable filler can be used for a Liquid Facelift such as Restylane, Perlane, Emervel, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Volift and Voluma. The product needs to be matched to your individual needs. Rest assured that we only use the highest-quality products from some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, so you can be confident you’re in safe hands.
Q. Are there any side-effects to the procedure?
A. Part of the filler itself includes a numbing agent, so you will experience a numb sensation afterwards which will soon wear off. If you develop mild discomfort afterwards, as some do, you can take some over-the-counter pain relief which will not impact the procedure at all. Some patients can also experience swelling or light bruising after the procedure, but this is temporary and can be easily covered by make-up or tinted moisturiser. If you have an occasion coming up, e.g. wedding, christening or special party, then we would recommend leaving at least two weeks between the procedure and the event to allow the area to settle down completely.
