What is a Liquid Facelift?
Liquid facelifts are a highly successful and a safe alternative to a surgical facelift. Patients seeking less invasive rejuvenation of the face can achieve significant and more immediate results with the use of BOTOX Cosmetic® and fillers, such as, Juvéderm®, Restylane® or Sculptra®. Liquid facelifts can restore lost volume, diminish lines and wrinkles, redefine the jaw line and cheekbones, lift sagging brows, and plump lips.
