About Liquid Facelifts
A liquid facelift works from within. Mainly using dermal fillers to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production where you tend to lose collagen the most, the liquid facelift can also incorporate wrinkle relaxers to balance areas with wrinkles that are better suited for it. We use dermal fillers to gradually help rebuild lost collagen only where it is needed most. It restores facial volume and fills in wrinkles and folds over time. Dermal fillers can be injected to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Results appear gradually after the injection session and can last up to two years (depending on the product implemented).
Liquid facelifts usually require three injection sessions over the course of 3 – 4 months by one of our excellent injectors or practitioners performing a very advanced injection technique. A liquid facelift mimics the contours of the face beautifully, adding facial volume without making the face look overdone like some inexperienced injectors can do. To create even more drastic results, we can include other treatments, such as medical-grade facials, chemical peels, dermabrasion, or laser skin resurfacing.

Am I a good candidate for a liquid facelift?
The ideal candidates for a liquid facelift are men and women looking to reduce the signs of aging and increase volume without having to experience the downtime of cosmetic surgery. It is a great option if you desire to fill in irregularities, such as bumps and acne scar pitting, in the skin while softening and lifting the facial features. A liquid facelift at Advanced Dermatology can elevate your aging skin, add roundness back to hollow cheeks or temples, and minimize dark circles or under-eye bags. Liquid facelift candidates, both men and women, do prefer this treatment over getting a surgical facelift if they qualify.
What is the treatment technique for a liquid facelift?
Before the liquid facelift treatment, we will consult with you about your desired outcome and what combination of injectables may be required to achieve these results. Your skin will then be cleansed, and a local anesthetic may be applied to injection sites. We will mark the sites where injections will take place with a removable marker. Using a small needle and syringe, we will start making injections to the marked areas. The liquid facelift procedure is done in-office, and the duration of the appointment is relatively quick.
What to Expect after a liquid facelift?
The wrinkle relaxers and fillers used in our Greater Houston, TX area offices are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are safe to use. The effects of fillers are typically noticed right away while relaxers can take some time to produce noticeable results. The longevity of the results depends on the fillers and relaxers used in the treatment. Some products only last three months while others may last much longer (1 – 2 years). You should come back to Advanced Dermatology for repeat treatment in order to maintain results.
Liquid Facelift FAQ
How much does a liquid facelift usually cost?
The costs for a liquid facelift can vary depending on your aesthetic goals, the type of injectables used, and the number of injections necessary to reach your aesthetic goals. During your consultation at Advanced Dermatology, we will examine your skin, listen to your goals, and devise a personalized liquid facelift plan for you. After that, we will be able to estimate your costs.
Which brands of injectables are right for me?
The varied brands and types of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers can target a number of aesthetic issues for different areas of the face. The condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals will be the prime determining factors for which types of injectables will be used in your liquid facelift plan. When we are creating your liquid facelift plan during your consultation, we will be able to recommend the brands that will optimize results to help you reach your goals.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a wrinkle relaxer?
Dermal fillers add volume to the face addressing wrinkles and lines or enhancing features like the cheeks and lips. A wrinkle relaxer targets the muscles responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles to diminish their appearance. Typically, dermal fillers are used to address lines around the mouth while relaxers target brow lines, the "angry 11's" between the eyebrows, and frown lines.
