If you have deep facial wrinkles and have lost facial volume creating a drooping appearance, you’ve probably thought about face lift surgery at some point. After all, it would be nice to regain that smoother complexion and volume you had earlier on in life. Considering having a face lift is a big commitment and many of us aren’t quite ready for a surgical procedure. Cost and recovery time are amongst the two major reasons people avoid having a face lift surgery. Luckily, there is an alternative with only a fraction of the cost and no downtime. To refresh your appearance without surgery, consider a liquid facelift.
Liquid facelifts combine injectables and fillers for a custom facial freshening. Dr. Lacombe is highly skilled in liquid facelift treatments and has performed over 20,000 procedures with liquid facelift products including Botox Cosmetic® and advanced dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Voluma®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® and Perlane®.
In December of 2013, a new facial filler hit the market that was the first of it’s kind. Juvederm Voluma by Allergan became available to select practices across the nation. At our Santa Rosa practice, we were among the first to begin injecting it to the general population, however Dr. Lacombe had already been injecting it since 2010 as part of the Juvederm Voluma FDA Clinical Trial for Allergan. As a Clinical Investigator, Dr. Lacombe was one of only 15 clinical investigators selected in the United States and Canada.
Having received the highest levels attainable (Black Diamond Status for BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma by Allergan Pharmaceuticals and the Chairman Status for Restylane, Sculptra and Dysport by Medicis Pharmaceuticals) Dr. Lacombe continues to stay on the forefront of new technology in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.
