Our Orange County liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers to add volume, minimize wrinkles and fine lines, and restore a more youthful facial appearance. A liquid facelift is an excellent solution for patients who have moderate wrinkles and skin sagging, but who may not be ready for a surgical facelift. A liquid facelift is also an appealing option if you want to “try on” the look you could achieve with a traditional facelift.

What is a Liquid Facelift? 

A liquid facelift can be performed using only non-surgical dermal fillers. Injectables with hyaluronic acid can restore the skin’s luminosity, and collagen-building fillers such as Sculptra can be utilized to restore facial volume sacrificed to the aging process. Many patients choose a liquid facelift because they are not yet ready for invasive surgery that comes with anesthesia risks, incisions, scarring, and a lengthy recovery period. However, a liquid facelift will be unable to address sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, and jawline. For these issues, only a surgical approach will yield the desired results and be able to rewind the clock significantly for a more youthful presentation. 

What can a liquid facelift do for me?

A liquid or non-surgical facelift in Ladera Ranch can provide dramatic facial rejuvenation and help you with most of the early signs of aging, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Thin lips
  • Sagging skin
  • Scars
  • Lost volume in your cheeks
  • Hollow areas under the eyes

A liquid facelift can help you look years younger without the need for surgery. For people with more extensive facial sagging with deeply-etched creases, a surgical facelift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, or a combination of these procedures is often appropriate.

How does a liquid facelift work?

A liquid facelift involves custom injections with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to restore volume to key facial areas. These treatment areas include the cheeks, around the nose and mouth, and the temples, where the early signs of aging typically appear. With the precise injection of a dermal filler, the skin gets a volume boost to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds.

Am I a good candidate for a liquid facelift?

You are likely a good candidate for a liquid facelift if you are struggling with early signs of aging, such as wrinkles, lines, and creases, as well as volume loss. Dermal fillers are ideal for combating hollow-looking contours that occur in the midface, around the temples, and around the eyes. They can also be used to plump and revitalize the lips. Patients dealing with an excess of sagging skin, however, may be better served through a surgical approach. A liquid facelift is often chosen by busy patients who seek a non-invasive treatment with no downtime or discomfort. They may undergo a non-surgical facelift over their lunch breaks, returning immediately after to work or school.

What can I expect from a liquid facelift?

A liquid facelift takes about 45 minutes to complete. Specific dermal filler formulas are injected in key facial areas to help provide lift and to correct moderate wrinkles and folds. It is Dr. Song’s preferred method is to tailor the treatment to each patient and perform this procedure over several visits to allow the changes to settle in. Additionally, Dr. Song may recommend other enhancements such as Intensif™, a groundbreaking microneedling treatment with radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen and tighten the skin.

Cost of a Non Surgical Facelift 

Each Irvine non-surgical facelift is uniquely designed to suit the needs and aesthetic goals of the patient. The treatments differ depending on which areas you would like to target and how much filler is required to achieve your vision, making the overall cost for the procedure quite variable. One for one, non-surgical facelifts are much more affordable than a traditional facelift procedure.

 When will I see the results?

You will see the smoothing effect immediately, and it will improve for a week as the fillers do their work in restoring volume and hydration to your skin. The result is smoother and more youthful-looking skin, as well as fewer wrinkles and facial folds.

What is the recovery time after a liquid facelift?

There’s no downtime associated with a liquid facelift. After your treatment, you are free to return to your regular routine. However, we do recommend that patients avoid working out for the first 24 hours after a liquid facelift, as excessive body heat may cause the injected formula to spread.
