Liquid Facelifts in Boston

A liquid lift is when a filler, such as Juvéderm or Restylane, 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 is not permanent and lasts approximately 1- 1 ½ years.

How Does it Work?

  1. 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.
  2. We don’t just put the filler in the cheeks and call it a “lift.”
  3. The area is made numb to ensure comfort.
  4. We use blunt tipped cannulas that result in less bruising, swelling and discomfort.
  5. Fine threads of the filler 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.

A liquid lift is ideal for addressing a number of skin concerns and appeals to many patients. If you are considering this treatment, you will first consult with Dr. Ahn, who will discuss your cosmetic goals and determine if this treatment is right for you. You may be a candidate if:

  • You are bothered by the lines near your nose and mouth
  • Your face is exhibiting signs of volume loss
  • You prefer an effective facial rejuvenation option without the need for surgery

Yes, the safety of our liquid lifts is evident in several components of the treatment. The team at The Aesthetics Wellness Center only uses safe and effective fillers, such as Restylane. Furthermore, liquid lifts at our facility are performed by our Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, Rebecca Hoffey, RN BSN RNFA, who is in the top 1% of injectors in the country.

Liquid lifts are approached as customized procedures since no two patients are exactly alike. Because of this, it is not possible to provide a quote without first completing an examination, at which time a treatment plan can be created in alignment with your unique needs.

Truthfully, there is no perfect age for a liquid facelift. While those in their 40s, 50s, and 60s may find they are experiencing signs of aging that can be addressed with a liquid facelift, younger patients who have early signs of aging — such as volume loss — can also benefit from the treatment.

A major benefit of a liquid facelift is the limited, if any, downtime that comes with the procedure. Patients may experience mild swelling and bruising after the procedure, but this is temporary and subsides after a few days, allowing patients to get back to their daily activities sooner.

A liquid facelift can effectively rejuvenate the complexion and provide a younger overall appearance but is not designed to be permanent. Therefore, if you want to maintain your results, additional treatments are necessary down the line. Depending on your specific skin concerns, you may not need another liquid lift for up to a year and a half. Dr. Ahn will provide specific information on how frequently you may need treatment to continue looking your best.
