With a more recent preference for non-surgical alternatives, there are more options than ever for combatting signs of aging without downtime or incisions. Although injectables are known for their volume-boosting results in areas like the lips, they can also be effective at facial rejuvenation with more long-term results. This technique is commonly called the liquid facelift.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
“Liquid facelift” is the common term for facial rejuvenation that doesn’t use surgery or invasive techniques. Instead, it utilizes the benefits of injectable treatments and other non-surgical procedures to produce refreshed, youthful results. For best results, the liquid facelift often uses Sculptra®, a unique injectable that stimulates collagen over time while also providing volume. This means it can produce more long-term results than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers.
Candidates for a Liquid Facelift
Patients who can benefit most from a liquid facelift procedure are those experiencing the beginning signs of aging but who are not ready for a surgical procedure. During a consultation with Dr. DiFrancesco, you’ll discuss your goals for a liquid facelift and we can recommend a well-rounded package of non-surgical treatments to achieve your ideal look without significant downtime.

Liquid Facelift Procedure
A liquid facelift can be performed in our Atlanta office by our expert injectors. We can supply a topical anesthetic so that you’re comfortable throughout. During a liquid facelift, the product is carefully and precisely injected under the surface of the skin in your treatment areas where it can replace lost volume and stimulate new collagen to replace it. Common areas addressed during a liquid facelift include the nasolabial lines, marionette lines, lips, and other areas of low volume due to aging. After the procedure is complete, you can return home.
Liquid Facelift Results and Maintenance
After the procedure, you may experience some redness and sensitivity at the injection sites, but this subsides quickly. You’ll see noticeable improvement after the procedure, and your results will continue to improve in the weeks and months following as your body regenerates new collagen. You may require touch-up appointments to maintain your results, but most patients see results that last for more than two years. We recommend you undergo an effective regimen of skincare treatments to further combat signs of aging, and we’ll create the ideal plan for you during your consultation. We can also recommend your best options from our selection of physician-grade products.
