Liquid Facelift Products Used
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.

"Dr. Nawada is AWESOME!! Along with his staff. I had a BOTCHED breast reduction from a surgeon at Lakeland’s Watson Clinic in 2003. I was promised the moon and back and was left mutilated. I wasn’t the only one who went too this “so called plastic surgeon “ and received botched results. My breasts were so botched I would cry looking at them in the mirror. The scars were horrendous and hurt all the time. I couldn’t wear a bra, not that I needed one anymore bc all I was left with going from a 38HHH too barely A cups which were scars. I heard so many great things about Dr. Nawada so I went for a consultation 5 years later. He is very upfront and tells you like it is which I truly liked. Some take that as he doesn’t have a good bedside manner, but it’s they want things the way they want it not reasonable for the best results. Not only did he fix the scars which when he did it left my breast concave, but he put in appropriate size, shape and form of saline implants proportionate too my body. Along with the breast reconstruction he tandemly did an apron tummy tuck and gave me the cutest belly button ever. (I had weighed almost 300lbs in my teen years and lost over 100 leaving the skin too skin touching which was removed) All I can say is everything was perfect then and still too this day 10 years later I’m still loving the way I look. My daughter who is 21 went through this with me mind you she was only 12 at the time and now she has one breast 2 2 1/2 sizes smaller. Dr. Nawada examined her when she was 18 and told her too wait until she was 21 and come back and he will augment her breast too make them fuller and even. I appreciate his honesty and telling her too wait because most would have done it back when she was 18 and as he told her her breast will be about done growing around 21-22 keeping the need of an additional surgery if she were too have done at 18. She’s preparing soon too have her surgery and I feel SUPER COMFORTABLE AND SAFE putting my baby’s life and vanity in Dr. Nawada’s and his staffs hands. It doesn’t hurt either that his head Nurse/office director was a high school classmate of mine. If you want the BEST NAWADA AND ASSOCIATES is the place too go??!!"- A.S. / Google / Nov 25, 2018
"It has been 17 years, but was an exceptional experience. I wish Dr. Nawada was here in the Atlanta area...."- V.A. / Facebook / Jun 20, 2018
Liquid Facelift During/After the Procedure
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.
Liquid Facelift Expected Cost
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.
Liquid Facelift FAQs
Is This Safe?
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.
