Liquid Face Lifts
Both Doctors Fleming and Mayer are Featured Physicians at liquidfacelift.com. The following will provide you with information regarding a “Liquid Face Lift”, and if you like, you may watch this procedure being done.
Over the years, as the face begins to lose collagen and elastin, which contribute to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, creases and folds. During the past few years, a specialized group of physicians began treating wrinkles with new FDA-approved dermal fillers and BOTOX®. At this time, the physicians began to notice an accompanying benefit. As these procedures were performed with particular products and with certain injection techniques, facial features exhibited a gentle lift as well. Some of these physicians refined techniques to focus on lifting and contouring, with an ancillary benefit of wrinkle reduction. This has become the revolutionary new approach in treating sagging facial features called a Liquid Face Lift.
A Liquid Face Lift can be done to accomplish any of the following:
- Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
- Reduced wrinkles, creases or folds
- Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
- A more rested, energetic look
- A friendlier smile
A liquid face lift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, usually in combination with BOTOX®. The dermal fillers used are among a group of 2nd generation dermal fillers that provide more enduring results than earlier products. This 2nd generation group includes Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Sculptra®. See fillers and liposculpture
Each of these dermal fillers has unique attributes that work in their own special way to contour specific areas of the face. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face or help the body regenerate its own collagen. Precisely placed, the dermal fillers can be used to lift or contour any number of facial features.
It is common knowledge that BOTOX® relaxes and diminishes wrinkles. BOTOX® is also used in conjuction with the dermal fillers to provide added lift and to help the endurance of the dermal fillers. In the face, there is a constant tug of war among muscles that pull up and muscles that pull down. BOTOX® is placed in the depressor muscles to relax the downward pull and to let the upward-pulling muscles win, providing a lift to various facial features.

Results from Liquid Face Lift techniques are usually gradual and can range from suble to astonishing. It is common for patients who have had Liquid Face Lift procedures to say that they receive compliments on their appearance without others knowing that they have done anything. In some instances, the results can be so uplifting that they change an individual’s life. Liquid Face Lift procedures generally take around half an hour or so, and the patient can return to most normal routines the same day. As with any cosmetic medical procedure, results vary from patient to patient.
The Liquid Face Lift Association is a non-profit association of licensed physicians who are highly experienced in the use of advanced liquid face lift products. The average member physician has performed over 5,000 BOTOX® procedures and nearly 5,000 dermal filler procedures. The association screens practitioners who apply for membership by the number of dermal filler and BOTOX® procedures that they have personally performed. Each member physician must have personally performed at least 1,000 BOTOX® and dermal filler procedures, and be a licensed physician in good standing with licensing boards.
