What Is a Liquid Facelift?
As we age, our faces begin to lose collagen, elastin, and fat tissue. This loss of facial volume and elasticity leads to sagging facial features and the formation of wrinkles, creases, and folds. The availability of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and advanced dermal fillers at our Naples-Fort Myers area locations has led to the development of techniques using several of these products together to achieve harmonious rejuvenation. This revolutionary, non-surgical approach to treating sagging facial features is called a liquid facelift.
The Liquid Facelift Procedure
Dr. Flaharty has performed thousands of liquid facelifts and has refined a technique to focus on lifting and contouring the face, with an ancillary benefit of wrinkle reduction (rather than the other way around).
The liquid facelift can accomplish the following:
- Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
- Reduced wrinkles, creases, and folds
- Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
- A more rested, energetic look
- A friendlier smile
For more targeted results, such as reducing wrinkles around the jawline or eliminating acne scars, you may want to consider INFINI™, a skin tightening treatment designed to stimulate your body’s production of collagen.

Liquid Facelift Goals
A liquid facelift performed at our Fort Myers and Bonita Springs offices is designed to meet the individual goals of each patient, taking into account the unique skin type and structural characteristics.
Goals of the liquid facelift in our offices are always individualized with each patient’s unique skin type and structural characteristics in mind. In some patients, the goal is to lift the entire face, while in others, it is to lift or contour specific facial features.
For example, hollowing under the eyes can be treated by using liquid facelift techniques, eyelids can be lifted, jowls can be lifted and diminished, the natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas, and corners of the mouth can be lifted, to name a few benefits.
Liquid Facelift Fillers
The advanced dermal fillers we use include JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, and Artefill®. Each of these dermal fillers has unique attributes. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face and help the body regenerate its own collagen. Precisely placed, the dermal fillers can be used to lift or contour any number of facial features.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
Because a liquid facelift is such a versatile treatment, many different men and women can benefit. The procedure is a good option for those who are bothered by facial aging but who don’t yet see concerns significant enough to warrant a full facelift or other surgery. Others may be attracted to a liquid facelift because it’s a brief procedure that offers instant results. If you’re still unsure of your candidacy, Dr. Flaharty can give you a better idea of your options during your consultation.
Liquid Facelift Results
Results from liquid lift procedures are usually gradual and can range from subtle to astonishing. It is common for patients who have had liquid facelift procedures to say that they receive compliments on their appearance without others knowing that they have done anything. As with any cosmetic medical procedure, results vary from patient to patient.

What Can I Expect During Recuperation?
One of the best things about a liquid facelift is that it doesn’t require any sort of recuperation, and in most cases, patients can get back to their regular activities immediately. Depending on the types of injectables used in your liquid facelift, you may see results instantly. Results of BOTOX Cosmetic injections can take a few days to fully develop. Immediately after your procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness, but these effects are minor and short-lived.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The longevity of your results depends on a few different factors, including:
- The products used
- Where on your face they were injected
- The severity of your symptoms
For example, lines in areas that don’t move much, such as the chin, may have longer-lasting results than lines around very mobile areas, such as the mouth. Injectables can last anywhere from 4 months to 2 years, and Dr. Flaharty will give you a more precise understanding of the results you’re likely to see.
