Easy and Effective Treatments in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Let's face it: No one is immune to wrinkles. Lines and wrinkles can be caused by squinting at bright lights or concentrating during a meeting.

Whatever the cause, if you are looking for a more youthful appearance, we have the solution. Actually, it's not just one solution. It's several treatments combined, each perfectly selected to counter your specific concerns and goals. The whole package is known as a liquid facelift. At our Grand Rapids facility, we go so far as to call it the "Bengtson Beauty Lift."

What Does a Liquid Facelift Involve?

A liquid facelift may be the ideal solution for our Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Birmingham area patients who want to improve their appearance but are not quite ready for surgery.

A liquid facelift involves the use of one or more "lunchtime" treatments in the office, potentially including dermal fillers such as Restylane Defyne and Refyne, JUVÉDERM injectables, BOTOX Cosmetic, skin-tightening Ultherapy, and more—all proven to be effective and safe. These treatments are administered by our Aesthetic Experts, each one having trained under Dr. Bengtson and drawing on years of practical experience. To speak with the Bengtson team about a liquid facelift Grand Rapids area residents are encouraged to contact the Bengtson Center today to schedule a consultation.

What Causes Signs of Facial Agingto develop

Grand Rapids liquid facelift model, before and after

Over time, the face loses volume (including fat) and the skin loses collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The facial bones that provide structure and a framework for the various tissues also subtly recede.

Combined with the long-term effects of gravity, the face begins to droop and lose fullness and definition. Although many people turn to surgical procedures to correct these problems, Dr. Bengtson and Dr. Alfonso believe that many patients can benefit from early intervention with a proactive, non-surgical approach to combat the visible signs of aging and successfully delay the need for more extensive, invasive procedures.

How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?

One of the most important factors in creating the details of a liquid facelift is thinking about the changes that will happen to the face over time.

The Bengtson Center’s team has extensive experience with the range of fillers and other treatments available, so you can enjoy the benefits of a long-term plan that takes each component’s duration and results into account. Wrinkle-relaxers, for example, tend to create results that last for months, while certain dermal fillers, such as VOLUMA, can last for up to two years. Skin tightening does not have a set duration, but tissue addressed with ultrasound or radiofrequency energy will continue to age. By choosing the Bengtson Center, you have a team prepared to work with you for results that look beautiful not just today and tomorrow, but for years to come!


What Are the Components of a Liquid Facelift?

Every person's liquid facelift will be tailored to their specific needs. One person may heavily show signs of aging on the upper areas of the face, while another may show more pronounced wrinkles and lines around the mouth. That said, here are the most common elements of a liquid facelift, along with a brief explanation of what they do:

BOTOX Cosmetic relaxes facial muscles that create wrinkles through constant repetitive activity. With the muscles at rest, the wrinkles are less prone to show or even deepen. Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane, can restore lost volume due to collagen and fat depletion. Depending on the specific filler, a treatment can fill in age-related lines, augment thin lips, or create rounder, more youthful facial contours in the cheek area. Dr. Bengtson is one of the top board-certified plastic surgeon national trainers for BOTOX and JUVÉDERM dermal fillers, and his team of Aesthetic Experts and Master Medical Aestheticians are highly sought after. If you're interested in a liquid facelift Grand Rapids' Bengtson Center has you covered, and you're in good hands with Dr. Bengtson and his team.

Can a Liquid Facelift Be Combined withOther treatments

Other patients benefit from a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Dr. Bengtson might recommend combining a short-incision facelift with the elements of a liquid facelift, or he might recommend some of the newer technologies. Ultherapy lifts, tones, and tightens loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin with ultrasound energy. THERMISmooth can accomplish a similar effect by using radiofrequency energy. The result? A face that looks naturally rejuvenated and refreshed! THERMItight also employs radiofrequency energy but focuses specifically on the neck.

Ready for Surgery After All?

After learning about a liquid facelift and having a consultation at the Bengtson Center, some patients decided that a surgical solution would actually be the best approach for them. Available procedures include a facelift to elevate sagging tissue on the lower half of the face, eyelid surgery/blepharoplasty to address sagging in the lower lids, and drooping in the upper lids, and brow lift surgery to raise a heavy, ponderous forehead.
