A Youthful Contour
A surgical facelift is one of the most popular plastic surgery options in the world, given its ability to make a face appear younger by smoothing lines and folds, tightening lax skin, restoring the volume necessary for youthful contours, and more. However, while many people would like to “take 10 years off” their face, not everyone wants surgery. For these patients, there is the “liquid facelift.” Naperville’s John Bull Center offers the treatment—which is actually a combination of treatments that can be customized for each specific patient. A liquid facelift may include injectable fillers that can plump up, fill in, and restore natural facial features that are sagging and tired-looking as a result of aging. It can also include neuromodulators that relax the busy muscles that etch lines into the skin. The goal is to target the signs of aging unique to a particular face, choosing from the various treatments designed to address those specific signs.
A Smoother Look
Simply put, a liquid facelift can address any of the signs of aging addressed by the injectables used. To understand the benefits of a liquid facelift, it is important to take a closer look at the structure of the facial muscles. The face has two types of muscles: depressors (downward pulling) and elevators (upward pulling). As the face naturally ages, it begins to lose its natural collagen and elastin, which provide structure, firmness, and resiliency. Without suitable levels of these important proteins, facial tissues begin to sag as they succumb to gravity. Various features look even more aged as the depressor muscles pull them downward.
To counteract this effect, Dr. John Bull injects a neuromodulator—such as BOTOX®, Xeomin®, or Jeuveau™—into the depressor muscles, causing them to relax and allow the upward-pulling muscles to naturally lift the face. These injectables can also smooth out a creased forehead, visible “11s” between the eyes, and crow’s feet. In addition to neuromodulators, Dr. Bull uses dermal fillers like Juvederm® to add volume and Radiesse® to help the skin regenerate its own natural collagen, thus giving it a fuller, more rounded, and smoother look.

More Radiant Than Ever Before
Dr. Bull practices advanced injection techniques for several reasons: With his sophisticated techniques—which include using the vibrating NUEVIBE™ device to distract the brain from feeling the injections—he minimizes discomfort during the procedure, as well as swelling and bruising after. This, in turn, encourages a faster recovery period.
Because this rejuvenation technique is on the forefront of plastic surgery advancements, it is important to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who personalizes the procedure to meet patients’ unique needs and understands the contouring attributes of each dermal filler. Dr. Bull performs individually tailored liquid facelift procedures, giving patients the right mix of products to help them look younger and more radiant than ever before.

*Individual Results May Vary
Women and men who want the benefits of a rejuvenated face without the incisions and down time associated with surgery are the ideal candidates for this combination of treatments. As with any cosmetic procedure, it is also important to be in general good health, both physically and mentally. Dr. John Bull can explain more during the initial consultation.
After undergoing a liquid facelift with Dr. Bull, patients say they notice reduced wrinkles, creases, and folds, as well as appear more energetic and rested. Following the procedure, patients may experience some redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site. Dr. Bull advises patients to refrain from strenuous exercise the day of and one day following the procedure. After one day, the patient can resume full activity. Specific side effects to watch for, as well as the duration of any results, depend on which specific injectables are used. The effects of neuromodulators typically last for several months, while the volume added by fillers can last six months to two years.
While the right combination of injectables can offer beautiful temporary results, facelift surgery provides more dramatic and longer-lasting youthful contours. In addition to lifting and tightening the lower portion of the face, surgery can also be used to open up the eyelids (blepharoplasty) and elevate and smooth the forehead (brow lift). Surgical procedures can also be combined with nonsurgical options to create especially natural-looking customized results.
Board-certified and highly accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. John Bull is not just committed to providing beautiful cosmetic surgery results in a safe and comforting environment. He also wants every patient to feel heard, understood, and confident in their choice.Learn More
