Today’s sophisticated, image-conscious client wants to look and feel their best but may be hesitant to undergo an invasive cosmetic procedure that will require a lengthy downtime, scarring, and anesthesia risks. For these patients, a liquid facelift can offer the remarkable transformation they seek while giving them the flexibility to return to work and other social obligations quickly.
A liquid facelift is a personalized procedure performed with a combination of dermal fillers and injectables to visibly soften and reduce age-related lines, creases, and folds. It can also help improve definition in the facial contours, boosting self-confidence.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift uses non-surgical means to help improve the facial appearance, combating wrinkles, lines, and volume loss. Because there are no incisions or anesthesia, patients can return quickly to their normal activities after their treatment. This makes the liquid facelift among the most practical and rewarding procedures on the market for busy, active patients who want to look more youthful and refreshed.
A liquid facelift can address many of the same concerns as its surgical counterpart, such as a loss of definition in the jawline, sagging cheeks and jowls, creases and folds around the forehead, nose, and mouth, and puffiness and discoloration around the eyes.
What issues can a liquid facelift treat?
- Diminished facial fat volume
- Poor skin tone or texture

- Wrinkles, lines, creases, and folds
