Liquid Lift

A liquid lift is when a filler, such as Juvéderm, is used to fill folds and add volume to strategic areas of the face to create a “lifted” appearance.

  • The advantage of such treatments is that it is non-surgical and has minimal to no downtime
  • The disadvantage is that the treatment lasts as long as the filler typically 1 year or more. 

How Does it Work?

The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes and is done in the exam room. First a careful analysis of the face is performed to determine where the filler is needed.

We don’t just put the filler in the cheeks and call it a “lift”.

The area is made numb to ensure comfort

We use blunt tipped cannulas that result in less bruising, swelling and discomfort.

Fine threads of the Juvéderm are placed in the right plane to achieve a natural looking rejuvenation.

Recovery after the treatment

  • Immediately afterwards, there will likely be redness, slight swelling and rarely some bruising. Redness resolves within 24 hours. If there is bruising, one can usually cover the area with makeup.
  • Rarely does the patient feel discomfort after the procedure.
  • Most patients are advised not to have the treatment done within 24 hours of an important event.
