The Non-Surgical, Liquid Facelift
Until recently, the only way to make dramatic changes to your facial structure and reverse the signs of aging was through surgical facelifts. Now, advanced cosmetic treatments allow us to treat sagging skin, sunken cheeks, wrinkles, jowls, and other skin concerns with simple and non-surgical cosmetic injectables. Revitalize! CNY has skincare experts who help you achieve similar results as a traditional facelift, but without surgeries, incisions, or downtime.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
Traditional facelifts are surgical procedures that involve creating incisions around your face, lifting your skin tissues, removing excess skin tissues, and tightening the underlying facial muscles to reverse the signs of aging. Traditional facelifts are incredibly effective and produce brilliant results, taking decades off your face, but they also involve a high risk of complications, visible scars, and extended downtime. A liquid facelift uses modern non-surgical techniques to produce similar results with a few injections. Cosmetic injectables, such as Botox, Juvederm, RHA, etc., are made of specific formulations that produce various results, such as reducing facial wrinkles, enhancing facial volume, adding volume to the lips, etc. The injections, strategically delivered into the chosen areas, improve your appearance making you look younger by achieving facial balance.
Our skincare providers at Revitalize! CNY examine your skin quality and discuss your cosmetic goals to recommend the ideal liquid facelift treatment, comprising the ideal solutions for your specific goals and budget.
What Are My Liquid Facelift Options?
Neuromodulators, also known as wrinkle relaxers, are primarily used to smooth dynamic facial wrinkles, such as the horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and laugh lines. Dynamic wrinkles occur due to the overuse of facial muscles responsible for communicating certain emotions, such as anger, laughter, stress, etc. The repeated use of these facial muscles “iron in” and deepen the dynamic wrinkles, making them appear prominent, even when you’re not using those expressions.
Neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport, are made of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A, a component that blocks communications between your nerves and the targeted facial muscles. By preventing the nerves from sending signals to your muscles, neuromodulators essentially paralyze the facial muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles. As such, the strategic injection of neurotoxins reduces 4ert1facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Revitalize! CNY provides Botox and Dysport, two of the most powerful and effective neuromodulators for wrinkle relaxation. We use these treatments as a part of your liquid facelift if you have mild to severe dynamic facial wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are injectables that add certain components to restore your facial volume and fill out your wrinkles. Different dermal fillers have different components, but the best are those made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally- occurring gel responsible for your skin’s youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable and biocompatible component that enhances your skin’s moisture retention, restores lost facial volume, fills out the wrinkles and enhances facial symmetry, making you look significantly younger.
Our skincare providers carefully assess your skin and discuss your goals before recommending a treatment plan to suit your unique needs.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is ideal for anyone with early or advanced signs of aging. If you’re unhappy with your facial appearance, wrinkles, skin laxity, or volume loss, but don’t want to go through major surgery, then you’re the ideal candidate for a liquid facelift. Our skincare providers at Revitalize! CNY provide conservative treatments that provide the desired aesthetic improvements without any obvious signs of cosmetic treatments.
What Can I Expect From a Liquid Facelift Treatment?
During your initial consultation, your aesthetic provider will carefully examine your facial skin, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals. Based on the consultation and analysis, together you will create the ideal treatment plan, consisting of neurotoxins and dermal fillers that produce your desired results. Once your treatment plan is confirmed, the injections to achieve your goals take only 15-30 minutes.
You may experience some swelling, itching, irritation, or bruising around the injection sites, but the side-effects recede within a few days. There’s no need for downtime from work or social activities. The neurotoxin results will appear in a few days, and the dermal filler results will appear immediately. The longevity of the results will depend on the chosen injectables and how quickly your body metabolizes the product. To find out more, contact us today to book your complimentary consultation!
