Can you expand on what exactly a softlift is?
Written by Dr. Marcia Fleming   

Q. I’m interested in getting a facelift but not sure I want to go under the knife. My friend suggested a softlift, which I assume is a type of facelift. Can you expand on what exactly a softlift is?

- Samantha Crosby, Richmond BC

A. “SoftLift” is a combination of Botox and dermal fillers. The objective of the SoftLift is to restore volume to the face and relax overactive muscles, giving the face a more natural, youthful look.

The procedure can be highly effective without the pain, expense and risk of a surgical approach. As the face ages, the cheeks lose their plumpness and thicken around the smile lines. The lips thin and curve downward, jowls form, and the face begins to look tired. By lessening the frown in the forehead and mouth area, opening the eyes, and plumping the cheeks to elevate the lower face, your face is simply returning to its previous, younger appearance. Together, Botox and dermal filler gels can achieve the result of a more youthful, refreshed and relaxed face in one or two treatment sessions.
