what is a Liquid Facelift?
The liquid facelift is a cosmetic treatment that allows patients to experience the effects of a surgical facelift without having to undergo a major aesthetic procedure. A liquid facelift treatment at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa utilizes a special mixture of relaxers and fillers to add smoothness and volume to the face, revealing a more youthful appearance. The injectable dermal fillers work by adding plumpness to the skin while decreasing fine lines, and the relaxers create overall evenness. To create more dramatic results, we can employ the use of other products, such as chemical peels, medical-grade facials, dermabrasions, or laser skin resurfacing.

"My experience at DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery was excellent from start to finish. I had revision work done on my nose - to correct some old problems that have bothered me since 1974, when I had my original rhinoplasty surgery. Surgeon, Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is the best of the best. She did amazing work on my nose, giving me the nose I've always wanted. She was able to lower the tip and make my nose smaller and more delicate looking. And not only is Dr. DeRosa a top notch surgeon, but she is a wonderful, kind, and caring person as well. I cannot say enough about Dr. DeRosa! She and her entire staff are beyond amazing!!"- D.D. / Google / Sep 22, 2023

who should get a Liquid Facelift?
An ideal candidate for a liquid facelift includes individuals who want to decrease the symptoms of aging and increase facial volume without having to experience the recovery time of aesthetic surgery. It's an excellent option for Boston, MA patients who want to smooth irregularities, such as bumps and pits, in the skin while restoring youth to the face. A liquid facelift at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa can lift droopy eyelids, restore volume to hollow temples or cheeks, and reduce dark circles and under-eye bags. Additionally, it is ideal for men and women seeking quick results.
How do liquid facelifts work?
Before the procedure, we use your aesthetic goals to determine what mixture of injectables works best for you. The actual injection process for both the relaxers and fillers is the same and will start with one of our doctors marking the injection sites. Next, we clean the treatment area and if you need it, we can apply a local anesthetic. Using a small needle and syringe, we will begin injecting fillers and relaxers into the desired areas. In just a short amount of time, our talented doctors can complete the entire procedure in-office.

At our Boston, MA office, we use safe, FDA-approved fillers and relaxers. Usually, patients notice the results of fillers right away while relaxer products can take a full week to produce the best results. For patients interested in other cosmetic procedures, we may recommend waiting until you completely heal from your previous injections. The longevity of your results depends upon the type of products chosen for the procedure. Some products only last 3 – 4 months while others can last much longer. To maintain optimal results, you should return to DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa for scheduled touch-ups.
Liquid Facelift FAQs
Which products do you use for a liquid facelift?
The wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers we recommend are decided on a case-by-case basis depending on your problem areas and goals. Dr. DeRosa is proud to offer only the highest quality products that are also FDA-approved for cosmetic use. Those with further questions about our brands are welcome to contact our office.
Is a liquid facelift safe?
A liquid facelift is far less invasive than a surgical facelift, so it comes with a lower risk of complications and side effects. Most patients report only minor discomfort during the injection process, and there is no need for anesthesia or recovery time afterward. We work with each patient to ensure their safety and success throughout the process.
What about more severe signs of aging?
A liquid facelift can address mild to moderate areas with wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. However, patients with severe signs of aging or sagging skin may require a surgical facelift to achieve their desired results. Our team will help determine which treatment option is right for your goals during a consultation in Boston, MA.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
While wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, are utilized to decrease facial creases by temporarily blocking your muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a different kind of injectable that enhance volume in the face. Fillers are intended to volumize sunken features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. DeRosa or a med spa team member can determine whether you could be a good candidate for a filler (such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) during your liquid facelift.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Wrinkle fillers can address signs of aging throughout your face by smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be used on mild to moderate marionette, parentheses, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. Also, they can add volume to your lips and cheeks.
How many wrinkle relaxer units/injections will I need?
The number of wrinkle relaxer units needed may vary depending on your own needs and the depth of your facial wrinkles and creases. Our Boston, MA, team can talk with you about the necessary number of injections with a focus on your desired beauty goals and whether you seek to treat Crow's feet, the forehead, or between the eyes.
