A liquid facelift combines wrinkle fillers with wrinkle relaxers to create a younger, smoother appearance. Wrinkle fillers (injectable dermal fillers) such as Perlane, Radiesse, Juvéderm and ArteFill are injected into the skin to plump up and fill in hollow areas. This is commonly used for under the eyes, in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX, Dysport or Xeomin are injected to relax the muscles under the skin, which helps eliminate wrinkles on the surface. Common areas for these products include forehead lines, crow’s feet, and laugh lines. With a combination of the filler and relaxer, a rejuvenated facial appearance can be achieved.

During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
Prior to treatment, the practitioner will assess various aspects of the face and make marks directly on the skin to note where the injection sites will be. The face will be cleansed and a local anesthetic will be applied to help numb the top layer of skin. Using a syringe with a fine needle, the injection will be injected into the marked areas until the desired fullness has been achieved. Most patients are very pleased with their results and often continue to get more injections as needed. While this will vary by product, most will produce results lasting from 3 months to a full year.
The price for liquid facelift will vary greatly depending on what and how much is being injected. Average costs vary between $500 - $4,500 depending on the amount and products combined.

Is This Safe?@headingTag>
All wrinkle relaxers and fillers on the market today are FDA-approved and are safe to use. It is important to discuss the differences between each product so that a precise treatment plan can be formulated to meet the patient’s specific goals.
The results following a liquid facelift can last months and years depending on the products used. Some, such as BOTOX, typically only last 3-4 months, while others last much longer. It is very common for patients to come back time and time again for repeat injections. These patients feel that the benefits and results still outweigh having a surgical procedure.
Injectable fillers and muscle relaxers are used in combination to create stunning results. Some patients may also consider skin rejuvenation with chemical peels, dermabrasion and dermaplaning to continue to add surface results. These procedures help eliminate and decrease skin irregularities such as blemishes, scars, sun damage, color pigmentation and freckles.
