A liquid facelift is a treatment designed to restore a more youthful, lifted facial appearance with the use of injectables.
Wrinkles, lines, and creases are smoothed with dermal fillers, cheek volume may be added to create a lifting effect, and forehead lines and crow’s feet can be smoothed with neuromodulators such as BOTOX.
A Liquid Facelift Can Restore Your Look in Just Minutes.
As you age, your body begins to lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin – nature’s skin-firming elements. These natural elements keep your skin smooth, fresh, and full. When the aging process begins, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form, and your skin will begin to lose volume and sag. A liquid facelift can help to replace lost volume, while enhancing the overall structure of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
Each liquid facelift is tailored to your own unique needs. If you would like to counteract the visible signs of aging but aren’t ready for the downtime and recovery associated with a surgical facelift or other more invasive procedure, a liquid facelift can plump fine lines and wrinkles and restore areas which have hollowed such as the cheeks, temples, and beneath the eyes.

What Are the Benefits of a Liquid Facelift?
Our Seattle liquid facelift can provide you with just the right amount of lift to soften the visible signs of aging and restore a fresh, more youthful facial appearance. A liquid facelift is a non-invasive alternative to a traditional facelift or other more invasive facial rejuvenation treatment. Your custom liquid facelift produces instant results that improve over time.
Fine lines and wrinkles are softened, deep creases are smoothed, and sagging skin in the mid-face and jowls can be lifted to a more youthful position by restoring cheek volume. A liquid facelift can be an excellent alternative to a surgical facelift and may an appropriate treatment for you.
How is a Liquid Facelift Different From a Traditional Facelift?
A traditional facelift requires invasive surgery in which the skin and underlying muscles of the face are lifted into a more youthful position and excess skin is trimmed away. This surgical procedure smooths the facial skin, redistributes facial volume, and restores a more youthful look, but also involves many weeks of downtime to fully heal. For many people, a facelift is the answer, but for others, particularly those who see the early signs of aging, a liquid facelift can produce a dramatic improvement in facial appearance, without surgery.
Volume restoration through a liquid facelift is a delicate process that requires a careful hand and an artistic eye. Through a series of careful injections of neuromodulators such as BOTOX, along with dermal fillers, a liquid facelift is performed to match your personal vision for facial rejuvenation and volume restoration leaving you with elegant, natural-looking results.
Who is a Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
Men and women who are experiencing the visible signs of aging but are not ready for invasive surgery are usually good candidates for a liquid facelift in Seattle. If you are experiencing moderate volume loss and facial skin showing fine lines and wrinkles, a liquid facelift can produce excellent results. If, however, you are experiencing significant sagging of the skin in the mid- and lower-face, a traditional facelift is likely the best way to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Will My Results Be Long-Lasting?
Unlike a surgical facelift, volume restoration through a liquid facelift will require maintenance injections. Depending on the type of dermal injectable used, your results will last between six months and five years. To maintain the effects of your liquid facelift, you will need touch-up injections over time, as prescribed by Dr. Sajan.
Are There any Risks Associated With a Liquid Facelift?
Like all cosmetic procedures, there are a few risks associated with a liquid facelift. In the wrong hands, injection of dermal fillers and neuromodulators can produce uneven, overfilled, or artificial-looking results. That’s why it is so important to undergo a liquid facelift from a board-certified plastic surgeon who has both the experience and artistic eye to achieve beautifully natural results.
Can I undergo a liquid facelift while pregnant?
It is not recommended to undergo a liquid facelift while pregnant or breastfeeding as the injectable solutions have not been tested on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. These injectables, such as BOTOX, even though they are being injected strictly into the face, could have impacts that have not been studied on pregnant or breastfeeding women. They are perfectly safe for an adult, but their effects on developing babies are unknown.
At Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery, we find that these elective treatments are worth the wait when performed after pregnancy and breastfeeding have concluded. This keeps our clients and their children healthy, happy, and worry-free.
How many treatment sessions are needed?
This depends on your own aesthetic goals that facial areas requiring treatment. Most patients can achieve the look they want with a single treatment. You can repeat the liquid facelift when the effects have begun to fade. If it is your first injections with a neuromodulator (BOTOX, Xeomin, Dysport, or Jeuveau), we take a conservative approach for the first treatment.
Is it painful?
The injections are not typically considered painful. A topical anesthetic can be applied prior to your injections to reduce any discomfort. Cold packs can be applied to help reduce any swelling or redness left from the injections. You will not require prescription painkillers or need to schedule time for a recovery. The lines, wrinkles and creases will be smoothed, volume restored to cheeks, lip lines smoothed for a significant level of facial rejuvenation, with the only pain being the sensation of a pinch, which most people find easy to tolerate.
What is the ballpark cost of liquid facelift?
The cost of a liquid facelift could be in the range of $2,000 to $8,000. A liquid facelift is a fully customized procedure, so it may include different quantities of various injectables. You will have a combination of fillers and BOTOX in a unique combination to create a refreshed, youthful look.
