The Liquid or No-Surgery Face Lift - Casey Powell PA

Until recently, the term “Face Lift” was synonymous to an expensive invasive surgical procedure with long recovery, anaesthesia risks, and the possibility of post-surgical revisions.  A plastic surgeon was the only option for this procedure.  However, with the recent advancements in the nonsurgical aesthetic medical industry, the need for invasive facial surgery may very well become a thing of the past.

Nonsurgical options for improving the looks of our skin, lifting lax tissue and stimulating collagen can result in much better results compared to the old surgical face lift and are much less expensive in today’s world.  With the recent advances in Aesthetic Medicine, there are many options to consider before opting for the traditional surgical procedure (i.e. skincare, lasers, botox, the thread lift and, of course, injectables).  Facial Fillers have become the gold standard in producing dramatic results for many happy patients who wish to enhance their appearance without taking the invasive surgery route.  The results have been so encouraging that a fresh new term has become commonplace within the Aesthetics Industry - The Liquid Facelift.

During your consultation, your Cosmetic Injector will recommend the correct “cocktail” of injectable fillers that will produce those “wow factor results” that can rival even surgical results.  Certain areas of the face may require several treatments to achieve the desired final result.  In all cases, there is no invasive element nor will there be significant downtime; best of all, your procedure will be much less expensive than the traditional surgical equivalent.

Types of Fillers… 

Below are some of the fillers that are used in the Liquid Facelift Procedure:

Sculptra:  Sculptra is an amazing facial filler!  Sculptra is an injectable biostimulator that binds to your own existing collagen producing cells and wakes them up to start producing collagen.  Sculptra rebuilds the inner structure of the skin over time to replenish lost volume.  It continues to be the natural choice for many when it comes to rebuilding facial areas.  Sculptra renders results gradually and works by stimulating the natural production of collagen.   Multiple sessions may be required.  Results often last over 2 years.  Temporary swelling and bruising can occur. Downtime: None.

Juvederm:  Juvederm is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers, which include Juvederm Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, Ultra and Ultra Plus. Juvederm is used on different areas of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, plump the lips and augment different parts of the face. Results can last anywhere from 6-16 months depending on which product is recommended. Temporary swelling and bruising can occur. Downtime: None.

Restylane:   Similar to Juvederm, Restylane also contains hyaluronic acid. Lyft, Defyne, Refyne and Restylane are used on different areas of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, plump the lips and augment different parts of the face.  Results can last from 6-12 months, depending on which product is recommended. Temporary swelling and bruising can occur. Downtime: None.

Revanesse Versa: 
 Versa is a hyaluronic acid filler that can help deliver nutrients to the skin and help skin retain moisture and softness. Versa is used on different areas of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, plump the lips and augment different parts of the face. Results can last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on the individual. Temporary swelling and bruising can occur. Downtime: None


Radiesse:  Radiesse has filler and biostimulating properties. It volumizes immediately and then also works to stimulate your body’s collagen over time. It is a denser filler that can be used for cheek, jawline, NSL fold, chin and even hand augmentation.  Results have been shown to last a year or more, making treatment both immediate and long lasting. Mild swelling and bruising may occur.  Downtime: None
