As we age, our skin begins to lose critical substances such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which help the skin maintain its fresh, vigorous, youthful appearance.  Unfortunately, loss of these critical proteins, combined with damage caused by exposure to the sun, wind, and environmental toxins, contributes to the visible signs of aging we see on our face: sagging, drooping facial features, thin, gaunt contours due to loss of facial volume, and the formation of wrinkles, lines, and deep folds.  Traditionally, a surgical facelift was the only long-lasting, truly effective way to combat these signs of aging.  Today, however, powerful and advanced injectables now enable surgeons to lift and contour facial features without surgery or downtime.*

What Products Are Used In A Liquid Facelift?

The Liquid Facelift involves a personalized combination of advanced dermal fillers and powerful neuromodulators.

First, neuromodulators such as Dysport® or Botox® reduce the muscle contractions at the root of most lines and wrinkles, and are ideal for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, slowing the formation of future wrinkles, providing added lift to facial contours, and increasing the endurance of the fillers.  *

Second generation injectable dermal fillers—JUVÉDERM™ XC, JUVEDERM VOLUMA, Restylane®, Perlane®, and/or Belotero Balance®—help restore lost levels of hyaluronic acid for skin that is fresh, plump, and well-nourished.  Each of these dermal fillers has specific properties that work in their own special way to restore your youthful appearance; during your initial consultation, we will work closely with you to help you understand which products are best for you depending on the areas you want to improve and your unique medical history.  *

What Should I Expect?

A Liquid Facelift can be completed in our office quickly and safely in one visit.  Although the Liquid Facelift is completely customized to achieve each patient’s unique aesthetic goals, and individual results may vary, most patients will require an average of 6-8 injections to achieve their desired outcome.  Most products are infused with a local anesthetic which significantly reduces discomfort and eliminates the need for additional anesthesia.  Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at injection sites; however, most side effects are minimal and temporary.*
