A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses injectables to give the appearance of rejuvenated, healthier skin. The medical provider injects a unique combination of neuromodulators (Botox and Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Juvéderm and Versa) or biostimulators into different parts of your face to reverse the signs of aging and enhance natural facial contours. Depending on your unique condition and goals, a liquid facelift can fill out fine lines and wrinkles, enhance facial volume, and elevate natural facial contours.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift does the following:
- Fill out unwanted fine lines and wrinkles
- Correct dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet
- Reduce the prominence of facial creases, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Reverse age-related loss of midface volume from the cheeks and undereye regions
- Enhance and elevate facial contours around the cheeks, jawline, and chin
- Make the lips look fuller, smoother, and more voluminous
- Improve overall facial contours and skin texture
We perform liquid facelift with neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and Sculptra injections
Neuromodulators, also known as wrinkle relaxers, are cosmetic injections made of botulinum toxins, such as Botox and Xeomin. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin protein that blocks communication between nerve endings and targeted muscle groups. When injected into targeted facial muscles, neuromodulators temporarily weaken the facial muscles responsible for the formation of permanent dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines and frown lines. As such, neuromodulators can correct unwanted expression lines on the face.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath targeted areas on the face. We perform a liquid facelift with dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring and biocompatible gel that makes your skin look smoother, softer, fuller, and more youthful. When injected into targeted areas, dermal fillers add hyaluronic acid underneath the skin to make your facial tissues look fuller and more youthful. Dermal fillers fill out fine lines and wrinkles, restore volume to the cheeks, and enhance natural facial contours.
Sculptra is a collagen-inducing filler that encourages your body to produce its natural fillers. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together and holds them upright against the force of gravity. The gradual loss of collagen because of age is one of the primary reasons for the loss of facial volume and the onset of facial wrinkles. Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring component that stimulates natural collagen production underneath the skin, making your facial skin look smoother, fuller, and more youthful.

You are actively involved in the decision-making process. After a thorough evaluation, our medical providers select the ideal dermal fillers and neuromodulators for your specific needs.
During the liquid facelift treatment, the medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The chosen dermal fillers and neuromodulators are carefully and strategically injected into targeted areas on your face using ultrafine needles. The number of injections and the treatment areas will depend on your goals. The entire procedure may take 30 to 60 minutes.
What are the side effects of liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift may involve mild post-treatment redness, swelling, irritation, itching, and bruising around the injection points. The side effects dissipate within a few days.
Is there any downtime?
A liquid facelift doesn’t involve any downtime. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous physical activities for a day or two.
When will I see the results?
The results of dermal fillers will appear instantly, making your facial skin look fuller and smoother, but the results of neuromodulators will gradually appear over 2 weeks. Meanwhile, Sculptra results will gradually improve over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. That means your face will look fuller and more youthful when you leave the medical spa, with continued improvements for several weeks and months.
