Unlike a surgical facelift, which involves cutting and stitching the skin that is sagging, a Liquid Facelift uses Hyaluronic Acid based dermal filler, to revolumise and plump up areas of the face that have lost volume with the aging process. This plumping will reduce lines and sagging rejuvenating the face, leaving the skin looking fresher and younger.
Often this procedure will use a combination of dermal filler injection to plump up lips, fill out the hollows under the eyes, make the cheeks less gaunt, while at the same time tightening the forehead by reducing the lines around the eyes and forehead; it will also use either chemical peels or fractional lasers to improve the quality of the facial skin.
The cost of the procedure really varies between patients and relates to how many vials of injections are required and which kind of filler was used and if Botox injection was also used.
Anyone who has lost a lot of volume from the face, as a consequence of weight loss, or aging is an ideal candidate for this procedure. If, however, there is a lot of sagging skin or if one is desiring a dramatic result then a surgical facelift is recommended.
The duration of the results of a liquid facelift can generally range from 8 months to 2 years. You might need minor top-ups in between, especially if the lips have been plumped; as the result of lip plumping will not last for more than 6-8 months.
This procedure is generally carried out under the effects of a strong numbing cream and is well tolerated and minimally painful.
Depending on the need the filler molecules we like for a liquid facelift range from Restylane Lyft®, Juvederm Ultra 3®, Juvederm Volift®, Juvederm Voluma®, Teosyal®. We will often combine the filler with anti-wrinkle injections like Botox®, Bocouture®, Azzalure®.

While in the majority of patients this an extremely safe and effective procedure, it can be associated with some degree of redness or swelling and sometimes bruising that can last a few weeks. In the rare instances serious side effects like allergic reactions, infections, flaring up of cold sores, skin breakdown due to injection of filler into blood vessel.
Autologous Fat Transfer is a procedure in which the adipose tissue (fat cells) are taken from an area such as tummy and injected into the depleted areas of the face. While this procedure is minimally surgical and is associated with more swelling and bruising, the results can last a lifetime as long as one maintains a steady body weight.
A nonsurgical facelift is often less expensive and is associated with less pain, bruising and swelling compared to the surgical procedure, but more importantly, the results are subtle, extremely natural looking and people won’t know you have had anything done other than wondering why you look so good!
In the majority of patients, the effects are immediately visible and are associated with very little bruising or swelling. One can put coverup makeup straight away if required.
