Though aging is inevitable, not everyone is ready to welcome these changes. As the years go by, collagen and elastin production begins to deteriorate, causing issues like sagging skin and wrinkles. Luckily, innovative facial rejuvenation techniques can create a younger-looking facial appearance. A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that can turn back the clock without incisions, anesthesia, or recovery time.
What Is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a versatile, customizable procedure during which a skilled injector combines biocompatible dermal fillers with injectable neuromodulators in precisely targeted areas. Depending on what you want to achieve, a liquid facelift can erase fine lines and wrinkles; give you more contoured cheeks or plumper lips; fill in areas where you have lost volume; make you look more alert and well-rested; and define your chin and jawline.
This minimally invasive method delivers similar results to a traditional surgical facelift, with less downtime, risks, and complications. During your liquid facelift appointment, we will use tiny needles to make a series of injections in specific places, depending on your facial anatomy and cosmetic goals. Fillers and neuromodulators work hand in hand to provide subtle lift, add contour where your face needs it most, and effortlessly smooth wrinkles.
How Do Liquid Facelifts Work?
A combination of injectable dermal fillers and neuromodulators can minimize static and dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, brow furrows, perioral lines, and nasolabial folds when introduced into targeted areas of your face. These options include:
- Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, which use a naturally occurring substance found in the human body to attract moisture and encourage new collagen production
- Autologous fat taken from elsewhere on your body and introduced into your face to fill hollows and add volume
- Jeuveau and Botox®, which relax wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that allow you to make expressions like squinting and frowning
By skillfully applying these injectables in precise amounts, we can lift and contour your facial features to instantly give you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
Liquid facelifts offer many advantages over a traditional surgical facelift, depending on your lifestyle and aesthetic concerns. For example, younger patients or those with a less advanced degree of aging may choose to get a liquid facelift to address mild to moderate facial wrinkling. People with busy lifestyles who don’t have time to commit to a longer recovery process may also prefer a liquid facelift, since most patients can resume their typical daily activities soon after getting their simple in-office procedure done.
Of course, one of the most appealing benefits of a liquid facelift is that it does not require anesthesia, stitches, or scarring. Those who wish to look younger without surgery love this minimally invasive option because it has little to no recovery time and does not present the risks that come with surgery.
