What Is A Liquid Facelift Procedure?
The Liquid Facelift Procedure is a facial rejuvenation intervention that employs a combination of Botox and Dermal Fillers to contour and form the facial structure. It is also referred to as: “the non surgical facial rejuvenation” or “non surgical facelift”. Proper visual skill is one of the main components utilized to evaluate the facial structure. Botox and Dermal Fillers are then used to lift and fill in the desired area to shape and contour. This results in a refreshed face, void of cuts and scars.
Therefore this procedure is the latest sought after option, for women who are looking for that refreshed look. There is no downtime, no incisions to be made and recovery is quick and seamless. We call it the natural facelift, as the results are a look that is refreshed and alluring rather than the “pulled” unnatural look the traditional facelift tends to render.
In conclusion, this procedure is geared at restoring droopy facial areas. It fills in areas that have lost collagen over time, thus it does not in any way make any unnatural change to the facial structure. This natural approach is intended to subtly lift droopy facial zones, such as brows and jowls and corners of the mouth. It will reestablish the fullness of the lips. Sunken areas, such as under the eyes and cheeks will look fuller with Dermal Fillers. Wrinkles and fine lines will be reduced or eliminated with Botox..

Who Is Not A Candidate For A Liquid Facelift?

How Long Does This Procedure Last?
For optimal and longer lasting results a full correction is recommended. Thus, this can be spread over two visits if you are nervous about injections. When a full correction is being performed the results tend to last for one to two years. The choice of Dermal Fillers plays a crucial role, as some tend to outlast others. The effects of Botox wear off within 6 months. Some of our patients choose Juvederm and others Voluma, depending of how long they want the procedure to last.
For some who are having the procedure done for the first time choosing the shorter term option is more reassuring. No matter the choice there is no doubt that the Liquid Facelift Procedure has gained popularity since its debut on the marked and women are flocking to this option.
Liquid Facelift vs. TraditionalFacelift
There are distinctive differences with these two options. During the traditional facelift procedure, the underlying facial muscles are being pulled to correct droopiness within the facial structure. Therefore, this results in a pulled look. The hollow areas are still hollow and this lends a mature somber look. With this innovative technique, the hollow areas are filled in and that makes all the difference.
Visible natural results render a refreshed look. A characteristic of of youth is full cheeks and refreshed eyes. The Liquid Facelift will address those concerns . To further enhance your results we suggest a combination of the PRP Facelift to enhance skin texture and tone in order to add the smooth finish along with the rosy pinkish tonality much desired. As we age our skin tones shifts from pinkish to more grayer tones.
The traditional facelift, required general anesthesia and downtime and the cost is considerable compared to the Liquid Facelift procedure.
This procedure does not require cuts, thus there are no scars. Dr. Leoni uses injectable techniques, resulting in minimal to no bruising at all.
In contrast the traditional facelift is painful with a significant recovery. The liquid facelift is performed under local anesthesia, and there is no pain involved. It is very rare where we have seen bruising, or pain associated with bruising.
There is no comparison between these two procedures with respect to results.
In a nutshell with the Liquid Facelift:
- there is no need for general anesthesia
- no need for incisions
- can be performed on an outpatient basis
- quick recovery
- custom individualized approach
- quick results
Is The Procedure Painful?
A slight discomfort may be felt during the procedure, however the area is numbed with a topical or local anesthetic to minimize the discomfort. In some cases a nerve block will be used. Minimal inflammatory response and redness following is treated with ice packs and over the counter medications.
How soon will I see results?
The results with this procedure may be seen immediately after the procedure. Over the next few days, the swelling and redness will resolve and the effects of Botox will evolve following.

Liquid Facelift Risks
An injection or any puncturing of the skin always carries a risk of infection. In our practice we have never had any such instances. Individuals who suffer with herpes may have a greater risk of on outbreak at the area being injected. In such cases we recommend a prescription prior to the procedure.
Please discuss this with our medical staff prior to scheduling your procedure. Dermal Fillers may feel like tiny lumps at the site for the first few days. As the filler sets in, however, that sensation will disappear. The tiny lumps are not visible to the eye, it is just something that can.
How many sessions are needed?
The Liquid Facelift is designed to deliver results with only one session.
Liquid Facelift Cost
Liquid Facelift Cost can vary depending of the choice of Dermal Filler being utilized. The Dermal Fillers with greater longevity tend to cost more. We recommend a full correction for better results and that is also a variable added to the cost. The cost of a Liquid Facelift will also fluctuate with the amount of botox being used. Some will require minimal Botox while others may require more, depending on the degree of effects desired. Dr. Leoni will make suggestions based on your desired results.
