There is an ever-growing variety of dermal fillers, neuromodulators, and collagen boosters on the market designed to target specific skin concerns, such as wrinkles, volume loss, hollows, sagging skin, and more. When these skin rejuvenation treatments are administered during a single session to refresh someone’s appearance, it is referred to as a liquid facelift. Rather than undergoing an actual surgical facelift, injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, can achieve similarly beautiful results without a single incision.
If you are interested in gaining the benefits of the most advanced cosmetic injectable treatments available, please schedule a consultation for your facelift with Ava MD in Los Angeles. A beautiful, rejuvenated appearance is just a phone call away!

How Does a Liquid Facelift Treatment Work?
Youthful skin remains supple and vibrant because the tissue naturally contains plenty of collagen and elastin, however, as we age, the production of these substances slows down significantly, resulting in volume loss, wrinkles, sagging skin, hollows, and under eye circles. A liquid facelift is a non-surgical solution that is designed to tackle each of these areas with the best injectable treatments available. For example, Botox may be injected around the brow to reduce and prevent worry lines and creases, while Juvederm may be injected into the cheeks and under eye area to restore volume and Radiesse may be injected into the lips create a plumper pout.
The cosmetic dermatologists at Ava MD in Los Angeles are skilled at not only evaluating a patient’s skin concerns and which injectable treatment can be used to address those concerns, but also at administering injectables to achieve natural, beautiful results.
A customized injectable facelift will commonly include a combination of the following injectables:
Each of these injectable fillers provides different benefits. For example, Botox prevents specific facial muscles from moving and creating indentations or wrinkles, Restylane lifts and contours the skin, while Sculptra stimulates the body’s natural collagen and elastic production to achieve gradual results.

What to Expect
As with any injectable neuromodulator, dermal filler, or collagen booster, the process of a liquid facelift treatment is fairly simple and quick. The number of injections will depend on the number of areas that are being treated, which can take 30 minutes to an hour to administer. Immediately after the injections, patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, redness, or itching around the injection sites, but these side effects typically fade over the course of a few days.
The dermal fillers and neuromodulators may be used to achieve the following results:
- Rested, energetic appearance
- Gentle lift of the facial features
- Reduced lines, creases, wrinkles, and folds
- Restored fullness and natural contour of the face
Depending on the type of products used, patients may see immediate results following the injections, while other treatments, such as those that stimulate collagen production in the skin, may need a few months to produce noticeable results. The overall lifespan of liquid facelift treatment will also depend on the type of dermal fillers or neuromodulators that are used. However, patients will typically enjoy the results of a liquid facelift treatment for more than six months.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
An injectable facelift is an ideal option for men and women of all ages to achieve a smooth, contoured, and youthful appearance without having to go under the knife. A surgical facelift can provide dramatic results, but the procedure and recovery can take time and energy that a patient just doesn’t want to spend. An injectable facelift, on the other hand, is minimally invasive. Patients can return to their everyday lives after the procedure, while surgical patients must physically recover from the incisions.
The perfect candidate for an injectable facelift with dermal fillers and neuromodulators is someone who is in overall good health and looking to enhance his or her natural appearance with minimally invasive techniques. Best of all, a liquid facelift can be safely combined with other non-surgical treatments, such as a chemical peel, laser resurfacing, or photodynamic therapy.
Those who may not benefit from dermal fillers or neuromodulators include patients who experience the following:
- Autoimmune disorder
- Neuromuscular or cardiovascular disease
- Sensitivity or allergy to the products used in the procedure
