What is a Liquid Facelift?
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.

He took the time to make sure I was sure about exactly what I wanted & provided me with great knowledge. Cherise at the front desk is so sweet & Kourtney is wonderful, too. Thank you for my wholesome experience! (:"- D.S. / Google / Apr 08, 2022

"6 weeks post op - happy with my results so far - From my initial consult with Dr Laverson I knew I was going to choose him as my surgeon. I had consulted with multiple plastic surgeons before my consult at Feel Beautiful and Dr Laverson put me the most at ease and I was most comfortable with the treatment plan he suggested. I thought I had an idea of what he would suggest because of my other consults (under the muscle implants and an anchor or lollipop lift and a tummy tuck, or extended tummy tuck as one dr suggested, muscle repair and lipo) but Dr Laverson was the first dr to recommend less invasive procedures. He recommended over the muscle implants and a donut lift, a tummy tuck and muscle repair but did not recommend lipo. This sealed the deal for me because it was obvious he didnt just care about selling more procedures but cared more about his patients and their recovery and results. After I scheduled my surgery everyone at Feel Beautiful was amazing and helpful whenever I called with any questions. At my pre op Dr Laverson went over all the aspects of my surgery( donut lift and 415cc mod+ implants over the muscle and a tummy tuck and muscle repair) and I was able to ask any questions I had. At my pre op I picked implants but a few days later I called because I had changed my mind about size and this was not a big deal at all. The morning of my surgery everything went smoothly and all the other nurses and staff who I met for the first time that morning were all great. My recovery has been smooth so far and any issues I have had Dr Laverson has responded to quickly and had me come in if he felt it was necessary just to be safe. I have spoken to several other of his patients who have all said that he is quick to address any issues that come up and although I was already happy with my choice this gave me extra reassurance about my choice.I am currently 6 weeks post op and while I am happy with my results so far I will wait to post photos until I am further along in my recovery and not so swollen anymore. I would 100% suggest Dr Laveron without any reservations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 23, 2022
"Over a year since surgery - tummy is gorgeous - After consultations with several other doctors I met Dr. Laverson and I knew immediately that I would trust him with my tummy tuck. He listened, did not try to upsell to more extensive procedures (as both previous surgeons had done), was very thorough and meticulous, set realistic expectations, supported me during every step of the process, had a really fantastic staff (Kourtney is amazing) and he's absolutely masterful at his art. It's been over a year since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. My tummy is gorgeous!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 27, 2022
Am I a Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
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.
What Are the Benefits of a Liquid Facelift?
This procedure is able to quell a number of issues regarding aging and decreased volume in the face without the need for surgery or lengthy recovery times. This allows patients to achieve results that look and feel stunning and natural without ever having to take time off of work or worry about scarring. Each liquid facelift will be completely customized to the patient's own needs in order to ensure the treatment perfectly suits their aesthetic goals.
How Are Liquid Facelifts Performed?
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 Results Can I Expect from a Liquid Facelift?
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.
