About Liquid Facelift
The liquid facelift, also called a non-surgical facelift, uses dermal filler to rejuvenate the skin, restore lost volume, enhance contouring, reduce wrinkles, and create a more youthful appearance. The injection specialist creates a unique plan for each patient to improve critical areas like the cheeks, under-eye hollows, jawline, and lips without surgery.
Dr. Miller and the injection specialists at BCFFR have an in-depth knowledge of the best treatment options and use the latest injectable techniques to ensure outstanding liquid facelift results. Review our dermal filler and non-surgical facelift photos.
Liquid Facelift Benefits
Liquid facelifts offer exceptional, long-lasting results without incisions, and patients typically resume their everyday activities immediately after the procedure. The liquid facelift is less expensive than a traditional facelift, and optional follow-up injections provide lasting results without surgery.
The benefits of a liquid facelift are based on the unique needs of each patient but typically include the following:
- Smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- Enhance facial contours
- Firm sagging jowls
- Reduce crow’s feet
- Improve nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Lift downturned corners on the mouth
- Erase fine lines
- Tighten sagging or loose skin

The Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
The liquid facelift non-surgical procedure is customized to match each patient’s goals. A topical or local anesthetic is used to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the process instead of the general anesthesia needed during a surgical facelift. Dr. Miller, or the injection specialist, explains the noninvasive procedure in detail during the consultation.
The dermal filler facial rejuvenation uses a combination of dermal fillers, such as Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Juvederm Vollure XC, Voluma, Restylane Lift, Volbella, Revanesse, or Sculptra. Each FDA-approved injectable offers unique benefits, such as strategically adding definition and contour, plumping lips, improving fine lines, raising brows, or erasing crow’s feet.
The non-surgical facelift often includes a treatment to enhance the complexion and activate collagen formation. The unique non-surgical facelift plan will match the patient’s goals and address a variety of issues, such as:
- Raise droopy eyebrows with Botox
- Fill scars
- Strengthen brows
- Replace loss of volume in the cheeks
- Redefine the jawline
- Improve Nasolabial Folds with Juvederm Vollure XC
- Fill chin wrinkles
- Add volume to an undefined nasal tip
- Fill under eye hollows
- Stimulate collagen and smooth skin with micro-needling
- Improve lipstick lines
- Lift sagging corners
- Fill acne scars with Restylane
- Restore lost volume due to age with Sculptra
- Fill creases between the eyebrows
Liquid Facelift Recovery
Most patients can return to normal activities immediately following the liquid facelift because the dermal filler procedure does not involve general anesthesia or incisions. However, some redness, tenderness, and mild swelling are common after treatments with dermal filler.
Over-the-counter pain medication typically relieves any mild discomfort. Cold packs may be helpful for swelling, and the doctor prescribes ointment to soothe the area. The doctor provides aftercare instructions based on the treatment plan during the consultation, including avoiding sun exposure and activities that encourage sweating during the recovery.
Liquid Facelift Results
Liquid facelift results vary, depending on the area treated and the type of injectables. Some dermal fillers demonstrate immediate rejuvenation results, while others become evident over several weeks as the injections trigger the body’s natural collagen production.
The doctor will explain the best way to maintain the improvements. Regularly scheduled follow-up injections and treatments can extend the younger-looking skin results for several years. Dr. Miller may suggest additional techniques like a non-surgical neck lift or advanced laser treatments to help the patient meet other goals.
The Cost of Liquid Facelift
The cost of a liquid facelift depends on the individual’s needs and the type of treatments performed. Dr. Miller or the skin care specialist overseeing the procedure will create a non-surgical facelift plan during the consultation. They will explain the area treated, the type of procedures, the name of the dermal fillers, and the price.
Medical insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures, such as liquid facelifts using dermal filler injections. However, the non-surgical facelift procedure is a very affordable option. FRCS accepts cash and major credit cards and offers affordable medical financing through Prosper Healthcare Lending.

Liquid Facelift FAQ
Ideal liquid facelift candidates are nonsmokers in good health, with realistic expectations, who desire facial rejuvenation, shorter treatment times, and reduced post-procedure recovery. Call to request a consultation at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation to determine if you are a liquid facelift candidate. During the visit, the doctor will review your medical history, ask about your personal goals, and examine your skin to determine if the liquid facelift matches your goals.
The liquid facelift treats multiple locations on the face, including the cheeks, brows, nose, mouth, chin, and forehead, based on the patient’s unique needs. Each procedure is customized to accomplish the individual’s goals for improving firmness and creating a younger, more refreshed appearance.
While there are some risks associated with all treatments, the risks associated with the non-surgical facelift are rare. Temporary side effects may include mild irritation to the treated area, tenderness, redness, itching, and bruising. The doctor explains the risks associated with the treatments during the consultation.
Most patients can resume their regular schedule immediately after their non-surgical facelift. However, you must postpone or avoid certain activities directly after the treatment. For example, avoid touching the treated area, and do not use the sauna or pool for the first few days.
The liquid facelift provides long-lasting results that add volume, contours, and enhancements without surgery. Some injectables used during the treatment can last six months to over a year.
Individual results vary depending on the type of filler used. The doctor will explain the expected results and recommend maintenance treatments for the best benefits.
Dr. Miller and the injection specialists who perform the liquid facelift procedure at FRCS examine each patient and may recommend performing an FDA-approved treatment along with the liquid facelift to achieve specific goals. Sometimes, the specialist may recommend Profound, ThermiTight, micro-needling, or Botox with a liquid facelift based on the patient’s skin type, laxity, signs of aging, and goals.
For example, Botox can reduce muscle contractions and minimize lip lines, drooping corners on the mouth, frown lines, and other signs of aging. At the same time, Profound, ThermiTight, or microneedling stimulates collagen and new skin cells.
The doctor will explain the liquid facelift procedure and the preparations during the consultation. Minimal preparation is required. Remove all jewelry and piercings before the treatment, wear a button-down shirt, and arrive with a fresh, clean face.
Patients should avoid medications that can increase the risk of bruising for two weeks before the treatment, such as St. John’s wort, vitamin E supplements, Advil, Motrin, aspirin-containing products, and blood thinners.
