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

"There are no words describe how it feels to be a middle-aged woman that worked my whole life & I feel like time has taken away my beauty. I decided to take some risks and look into the world of plastic surgery. I work in the beauty industry had to have seen a lot of facelifts and a lot of really bad but jobs I work personally with three high and local Newport Coast plastic surgeons and still was never impressed. When I met Dr Bernette she was such an intelligent , calm, aristocratic loving beautiful woman! After my exam I realized how genuinely sincere she was when she told me-genuinely how beautiful I was. I really believe her.... said there are a few things that she would do 'procedures' that she suggested ( that were non-surgical )that would erase the looks of stress and tiredness, that even when I had slept for solid 12hrs a night, would not go away! I have gained such an education from her about what I eat and how that I feel projects such an inner beauty to come out! With her expertise and some of the most non-invasive and non-painful injectables! Also the help of The products she chooses to inject , she has a wide variety of choices that are all-inclusive with Hydrolonic acid ( probably spelling it terribly) and collagen have all doubled my experience of looking the way I want to look! Dr. B is a healer. I'm a single mother looking to find a healthy relationship ... but Before Dr. B I had been held back, feeling that my outer appearance was no longer attractive. NOW I feel so much more confidence when I put my hand out to shake someone's hand or smile and I feel like I don't look like I haven't slept in three days LOL. Thank you Dr B into your amazing staff it's a game changer I would recommend her Procedures and techniques to anyone! Love & Light -Hxo"- H.H. / Yelp / May 19, 2018

"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
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.
