About Liquid Facelifts
The liquid facelift is a cosmetic treatment that allows patients to enjoy the effects of a facelift without pursuing a major cosmetic surgery procedure. A liquid facelift procedure at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic uses a special mix of relaxers and dermal fillers to add smoothness and volume to the skin, creating an overall more youthful appearance. Your unique combination of injectable wrinkle fillers work by adding fullness to the skin while minimizing wrinkles, and the relaxers create evenness. To produce even more dramatic results, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson also can use other products, like medical-grade facials, chemical peels, dermabrasion, or laser skin resurfacing.

"I must start by saying that I very rarely write reviews. But I recently recalled my experience with Dr. Laverson, and felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review that he truly earned. My situation was also quite different from most of his typical work, so I hope this also attests to his wide-ranging surgical skill. A couple of years ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident and wound up at Palomar Hospital. According to my family, doctors, and nurses, my face was pretty much smashed to bits and looked extremely gruesome. Some parts of my face were even missing. Anyway, Dr. Laverson was the on-call plastic surgeon that night. Once the E.R. doctors had gotten me stable, he had the impossible task of trying to fix my Freddy Krueger face by looking at an old picture of me on my fiance’s cell phone. Or at least it should’ve been impossible based on how bad my condition was...Fast forward a day or two, after my swelling from the surgery had gone down in order to see the results, my family and some coworkers came in to see. NONE of them could tell a difference from before the accident, including the coworkers who hadn’t seen my smashed face. Somehow, some way, Dr. Laverson was able to use plates, grafts, and whatever other tools and tricks in his brilliant surgical mind to make me look IDENTICAL to how I looked before splattering multiple pieces of my face on the side of a road. Shortly after my family, friends, and coworkers visited, Dr. Laverson himself visited as well to observe the post-swelling results, see how I was feeling, and to follow up on all the medical stuff he knew to look out for. He even asked my family and I if there was anything out of place, or changes we’d like to make, since he was happy to do another surgery to get everything exactly right. Because everything was already perfect I didn’t do another surgery, but his offer, his following up with me, and his sincere concern for my well being was absolutely amazing.There is only one last detail I want to mention, but it speaks volumes for Dr. Laverson’s outstanding character and genuine desire to help people feel beautiful and be happy with their looks. Since this was in the emergency room at the hospital, not only was it different than his usual surgeries by its type and difficulty, but the emergency was also paid for by my medical insurance. In the medical profession, this often means a significant pay-cut for the doctor from what they would normally charge. I don’t know if my surgery wound up being one of those times for Dr. Laverson, but I do know that he did a spectacular job given my horrendous condition, all while cancelling his Friday evening plans, and likely earning less than usual as well. I hope this review helps prove to potential customers that Dr. Laverson is a caring and outstandingly skilled surgeon, and to put anyone’s mind at ease that may be nervous or unsure about plastic surgery. And lastly, Dr. Laverson, I want to personally thank you for everything outlined above. I know there is no way I can ever really reciprocate what you did for me, but I hope this review can at least help show people and spread the word that you are an absolutely amazing person and professional."- D.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
"Dr. Laverson is incredibly thorough and passionate about his work. He answered all of my questions prior to my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Following my procedure, Dr. Laverson went above and beyond during my follow up appointment to ensure I get the best results. Office staff is very welcoming, and they even called to check up on me after my procedure. I feel like a new woman, and I’m more confident than I have ever been. I recommend Feel Beautiful to anyone considering having an aesthetic procedure."- J.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2019
"I recently visited Dr Laverson for my Botox injections. His office is absolutely stunning! He was very thorough in explaining his methods and the procedure. We discussed what look I wanted and decided what areas to focus on. He did a perfect job! I definitely “feel beautiful” ! I can’t wait to see future results and try other procedures. Thank you!!"- T.N. / Facebook / Feb 25, 2019
"From the first time I walked through the doors and all through my recovery I was treated so nicely. Dr. Laverson spent a lot of time talking with me to really understand what it is that I want and what will be best for my body. Cherise was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable. She was easy to get ahold of and super quick to respond to texts and always answered the phone. The nurses couldn’t have been more friendly or welcoming, they were relatable and down to earth. The anasthesiologist, Dr. Landon was very informative and kind and put me at ease. On the day of my surgery I knew I was in good hands and was not nervous at all. Throughout the process I felt as if I was their most important patient and am so glad I decided to get my breast augmentation surgery at Feel Beautiful."- C.C. / Google / Feb 17, 2019
Those best candidates for a liquid facelift are women or men looking to reduce their visible signs of aging and increase volume without having to go through the downtime or expense of cosmetic surgery. Although invasive surgeries produce more lasting results, a liquid facelift treatment at our San Diego, CA office is a wonderful alternative for patients longing to smooth out wrinkles or irregularities throughout their complexions. A liquid facelift at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic can mildly improve the look of sagging eyelids, add lost fullness to hollow temples or cheeks, and address bags and dark circles. Additionally, this quick and effective in-office service is ideal for patients who would like to enjoy fast results that are noticeable almost instantly.
Prior to your liquid facelift, Dr. Laverson will consult with you about your desired outcome and what mixture of injectables may be required to achieve the desired results. The actual procedure for both the fillers and the relaxers is the same and will start with Dr. Laverson marking the injection sites. Your skin will then be cleansed and local anesthesia will be used on the treatment area. Using a small needle and syringe, Dr. Laverson will begin making injections to the marked areas. The nonsurgical procedure can be completed in-office and the duration is relatively quick.
What to Expect
The wrinkle relaxer and dermal filler products utilized at our San Diego, CA office have all been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Each one could be a wonderful and safe addition to your personalized liquid facelift treatment. The results of dermal fillers are usually seen immediately while relaxer products can take a full week to produce noticeable results. The longevity of your results will depend on which unique combination of fillers and relaxers were chosen for your personalized liquid facelift. Some injectable products (such as BOTOX) produce results that last four months while other products may yield outcomes that remain much longer. You should return to San Diego Cosmetic Clinic for scheduled touch-ups to maintain your new and youthful look.
Liquid facelift FAQs

Should I get a liquid facelift or plastic surgery?
While plastic surgery does produce dramatic results, it is more invasive and comes with weeks or even months of recovery. We often recommend a liquid facelift to patients in San Diego who are interested in younger-looking skin without any downtime. A liquid facelift can be performed just in time for a special event like a wedding or anniversary.
