Liquid Facelift procedure

What is a Liquid Facelift or Non-Surgical Facelift?

This procedure has become increasingly more popular over the last several years. Many patients either feel they are not quite ready for surgery or don’t have the time to set aside for recovery. In today’s aesthetics, that will not stop you from being able to make beautiful improvements to your face and look years younger.

The treatment uses facial fillers rather than surgery to help rejuvenate the face, providing a more youthful appearance. It is important to understand that there are limitations with a liquid facelift and that depending on the aesthetic goals of the patient, sometimes only a traditional facelift can achieve a certain degree of longevity and improvements.

Liquid Facelift procedure

What to Expect on the Day of My Liquid Facelift?

Dr. Sundine creates an individual treatment for each patient, keeping in mind the patient’s specific cosmetic goals. We use several different dermal fillers in our office. Depending on the treatment plan, Dr. Sundine will select the best filler for you. Dr. Sundine uses each facial filler product in different depths of the tissue and carefully selects which areas of the face for the injections, with the overall goal of achieving a more youthful and balanced facial harmony.

At times, Dr. Sundine will suggest also BOTOX or other facial treatments to help compliment the specialty dermal fillers he uses during our Newport Beach liquid facelift. We will be very detailed with the treatment and place patient saftey as our top priority, striving for natural-looking beautiful results.

Liquid Facelift Recovery

Dr. Sundine has a very skillful approach to his Orange County liquid facelift and the recovery process should be quick and simple. There will be multiple injection sites, so it’s common for swelling, bruising, and redness to occur—all of which should subside after a few days. The full effects of your nonsurgical facelift will be best seen in one to two weeks.

What’s the Difference between a facelift and a liquid facelift?

The main difference is that a liquid facelift is nonsurgical and a facelift is a surgical procedure. With a facelift, we are surgically tightening the skin and underlying muscles. Whereas a liquid facelift, we are using dermal fillers to add volume and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

How long will the results last?

A nonsurgical facelift will last for one to two years. This can be a great procedure for patients who aren’t quite ready for a full facelift. Many of our liquid facelift patients do this procedure before electing for the more traditional, surgical operation.

Is a liquid facelift safe?

Absolutely. It is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers to plump the face and reduce lax skin and wrinkles.

Does a liquid facelift hurt?

There may be some slight discomfort, but the treatment should not be painful. We can offer a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment areas. After the treatment, there may be some redness and bruising, but it should subside within a few days.

Patient Reviews & Testimonials

  • "Extremely Qualified"

    I was referred to Dr Sundine by the Pelican Hill Resort while I was a guest there and I suffered serious facial injuries from a mountain biking incident. Dr Sundine and his staff were concerned and caring and extremely qualified. the work performed by Dr Sundine on my face is simpl astounding. I was so impressed with the quality of care and results I received that I have had additional voluntary facila work performed by Dr Sundine. My wife and some friends have also become patients of Dr Sundine's with the same results. It is a difficult decision to entrust someone to repair and maintain one's appearance. I trust Dr Sundine.

    After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. He is gentle and kind and genuinely listens to you. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. Even the day of the procedure, he spent ample time talking to me, taking measurements, and making marks on my body so as to get the perfect results. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine!
