A liquid facelift helps patients battle signs of aging without having to undergo cosmetic surgery or anesthesia. At CosmetiCare in Irvine, plastic surgeon Dr. Marguerite Bernett uses a special combination of wrinkle relaxers and wrinkle fillers, which is a liquid facelift to help add volume to the face and create a more energetic and youthful appearance. Patients can expect smoother and softer feeling skin, as well as a decrease in the appearance of fine lines on the face. It is common to also include a medical grade facial, chemical peel, dermabrasion, or a laser skin resurfacing treatment to complement the effects of the wrinkle relaxer or filler used.
The best candidates for a liquid facelift are those who desire wrinkle treatment and skin rejuvenation without having to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure. This treatment:
- Lifts sagging eyelids
- Provides a refreshed and energetic look
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds
- Adds volume to the flattened cheeks and temples
- Fills in bumps and irregularities such as acne scars or pits
- Diminishes under eye bags and dark circles

"It is hard to put into words how very happy I am now that I have had the Mommy Makeover. After all of the exercising and dieting I did after my last pregnancy, the loose tummy skin and drooping, smaller breasts and stubborn fat, uhhh so frustrating. So with Dr. Bernett's s t outstanding treatment and very caring manner, I feel like a new person! There is no other way to describe it. I am happy being a mom of course even before the surgery, but now I am so very happy with my improved look : )"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 31, 2015
"I feel like a new person after my Mommy Makeover! I recently was treated by Dr. Bernett, and I couldn't be happier. After my last pregnancy my body changed a lot, not only weight gain, also drooping breast and the loose tummy skin. I did a good amount of exercise and was careful with my diet, but the drooping, and loose skin did not improve much. Plus some areas of fat are just darned stubborn! Now that those trouble areas are lifted and tightened, I truly feel so much better. Dr. Bernett really took care of me and was careful and caring all the way. Everything looks great, and I am feeling so much better !!!"- H.M. / Wellness / May 30, 2015
"I am very happy with the procedures Dr. Bernett did for me. I had a face and neck tightening procedure which removed some fat and tightened my skin. As I am getting older, I also gained a little weight. My cheeks and chin were sagging, and I was getting a double chin. Now, I look ten years younger and feel better, too! I did a laser firming treatment for my entire face and my skin looks really beautiful. Several of my colleagues from work also went to see Dr. Bernett after they saw my results and were very satisfied. She is professional, very thorough and what I really love is that she takes her time and she cares."- M.N. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2015

What to Expect
A liquid facelift uses a combination of wrinkle fillers and wrinkle relaxers to help you achieve the look you desire. Wrinkle fillers are products, such as Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane, that are injected into the skin to add volume and smoothness. Wrinkle relaxers are products like BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin that are injected into the face to relax the underlying muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles due to facial expressions. An experienced practitioner will be knowledgeable on the perfect combination of these products to give you the desired look you wish to achieve without leaving you with a “frozen face”. Fillers and relaxers can be performed together during one treatment. It is best to wait a few days to undergo additional treatment,s such as dermabrasion, laser, or chemical peels. After several weeks of various treatments, the skin will look gorgeous with glowing, younger results!
The price for a liquid facelift is dependent upon the products used for the treatment and how much of it is needed. Included in the cost is the wrinkle filler and the wrinkle relaxer. On average, the cost of an injectable--whether it be a filler product or a relaxer, such as BOTOX--can average between $350 - $750 per syringe. Patients may need multiple syringes of the filler, relaxer, or both, but this will be discussed during a consultation. Any additional procedures added as part of the treatment plan will increase the overall cost.
