At first glance, liquid cosmetic techniques always sound better than surgical solutions. The so-called “liquid facelift” is popular mostly because it promises dramatic facial transformation with a series of dermal filler injections, skipping the weeks of recovery required by traditional facelift.

Facelift is a time-tested procedure that changes not just the way the world sees you, but also the way you feel about yourself.
