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
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.
