Liquid Facelift

Liquid facelift is an innovative procedure to serve as a non-surgical alternative for people who want to avoid the typical discomfort, downtime, risks, and costs associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure such as facelift. Liquid facelift is an injectable procedure to restore the natural facial contours and give a subtle lift to the targeted areas of the face.

The treatment provider performing a liquid facelift will choose a combination of injectable dermal fillers and muscle immobilizing agents in consultation with the patient. A customized injection plan will be prepared with an aim to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, fill the depressions, volumize the depleted areas, improve asymmetries, lift sagging skin, and enhance facial features.

Depending on the extent of facial rejuvenation required and the degree of facial sagging, the liquid facelift procedure may last from 15 minutes to an hour. Patients should know that liquid facelift injections must be performed by a qualified expert in order to achieve safe and desirable outcomes.

Soft Tissue Facial Fillers

Soft tissue facial fillers are a vital component of the liquid facelift treatment. The provider will usually recommend a combination of Juvederm, Restylane and Voluma, which are all hyaluronic acid based biocompatible fillers. These FDA approved fillers will add instant volume to the specific areas of the face.

At the same time, these fillers will stimulate the production of fresh collagen to add volume to the skin in a sustainable, natural looking way. For more intensive facial volumizing, the treatment provider may use Sculptra dermal filler. Radiesse is another filler that is sometimes used as a part of a liquid facelift.


Botox or Dypsort

Botox is a highly popular, FDA approved injectable treatment to mitigate specific facial signs of aging. Botox or Dysport may be combined with soft tissue fillers to achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Frown lines, smile lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes can be reduced effectively with neuromodulators such as Botox or Dysport.
