Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is a globally recognized facial plastic surgeon and facial nerve expert. He will devote the time and resources needed to teach an individual about the benefits of a non-surgical facelift, also referred to as liquid facelift, and recommend injectable combinations to customize a patient’s anti-aging treatment plan.
What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift represents a viable alternative to a traditional facelift. It serves as a “facelift without surgery” and involves injectable treatments.
At the CENTER, Dr. Azizzadeh offers a wide range of non-surgical facelift treatments to patients, including:
Botox – Erases fine lines, wrinkles and furrows in the face by temporarily deactivating the muscles that create these wrinkles.
Facial Fillers – Replaces lost collagen and fills fine lines and creases in the face, resulting in a rejuvenated and more youthful facial appearance.
Chemical Peels – Promotes skin cell turnover through exfoliation. After chemical peel treatments patients notice an improvement in skin texture, a reduction in brown spots and a beautiful glow.
Restylane – Includes a series of injectable fillers that consist of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the skin that holds moisture. Restylane is used to treat furrows, frown lines and wrinkles in the face, as well as pitting, scarring and damage to the skin’s surface.
Voluma: A facial filler that corrects facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm XC: Creates a smoother facial appearance by reducing the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles.
Radiesse: Plumps the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles
Sculptra: Reduces the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles for a more youthful, fuller appearance
Belotero: Temporarily adds volume to the face to help smooth skin
Volbella: Enhances the fullness of your lips while softening vertical lip lines
Ultimately, a non-surgical facelift can provide many benefits, including:
Reduces the appearance of facial creases, lines and wrinkles.
Tightens the neckline.
Enhances a sagging jawline.
Minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet.
Lifts the forehead, brows and eyelids to deliver a revitalized facial appearance.
Restores volume to sunken cheeks.
Gets rid of dark under eye bags or circles.
Creates a more symmetrical, and therefore, youthful appearance.
Improves the appearance of the skin.
Dr. Azizzadeh will work with patients to define the benefits of non-surgical facelift treatments. By doing so, he will be able to help a patient determine which non-surgical facelift option will enable this individual to achieve his or her desired results.
How Does a Liquid Facelift Work?
Dr. Azizzadeh is highly sought-after for his skills and precision in liquid facelift treatments. He will go above and beyond to provide liquid facelift patients with the best results possible.
A liquid facelift usually involves a combination of long-lasting injectables, like Voluma or Sculptra, with Botox and other hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane. During this procedure, Dr. Azizzadeh will use the dermal fillers to fill creases or restore volume in the face, providing a patient with enhanced facial symmetry and a more youthful facial appearance.
In many instances, an injectable facelift requires roughly 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Meanwhile, the procedure allows an individual to restore lost volume and fill lines in the face without the need for surgery and is maintained with touch up treatments.

What Should You Expect During a Liquid Facelift Consultation?
Dr. Azizzadeh wants each liquid facelift patient to get the best results possible and will collaborate with the individual to develop the optimal treatment plan. Dr. Azizzadeh will examine the individual’s face to identify signs of aging and areas that can be enhanced. After this assessment, he will be able to offer custom liquid facelift recommendations.
What Does a Liquid Facelift Procedure Involve?
A liquid facelift may involve multiple injection sites, and bruising and swelling are common in the days following treatment. Dr. Azizzadeh recommends using a cold compress and taking Arnica supplements to control bruising and swelling and note patients should avoid strenuous activity in the hours after a liquid facelift.
Typically, the results of a liquid facelift are visible instantly. If a patient uses Sculptra, up to three sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. These sessions often can be completed in one month increments, and a patient will see gradual facial improvements month after month.
Depending on the liquid facelift procedure, the results may last up to one year. Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to explain the benefits of each liquid facelift treatment and how long a patient should expect the results to last. That way, a patient can establish realistic treatment goals.
What to Expect During the Liquid Facelift Recovery Process
Liquid facelift recovery is minimal, and most patients can resume their regular activities shortly after treatment.
Oftentimes, liquid facelift patients experience bruising and swelling within the first few days after treatment. These symptoms usually disappear on their own.
Dr. Azizzadeh outlines the liquid facelift recovery cycle prior to performing the procedure. He helps his patient establish realistic treatment expectations as well.
Liquid Facelift FAQs
Does a liquid facelift require surgery?
Because a liquid facelift involves the use of injectable treatments, a patient does not need to have facial rejuvenation surgery. As such, a liquid facelift often provides patients with a safe, effective alternative to traditional facelift surgery.
What is the right age for a liquid facelift?
There is no “right” age for a liquid facelift or facelift surgery. Patients between the ages of 40 and 60 often pursue various facelift treatment options. But, Dr. Azizzadeh can conduct an evaluation to determine if a patient qualifies for different facelift treatments, regardless of their age.
Does a liquid facelift hurt?
A liquid facelift is one of many non-surgical facelift options available, but it is not recommended for every patient. To find out if a non-surgical facelift is safe and effective, meet with Dr. Azizzadeh. This allows Dr. Azizzadeh to review a patient’s medical history and determine their eligibility for a non-invasive facelift.
Dr. Azizzadeh recommends a liquid facelift if he believes the treatment can help a patient enhance their facial appearance without putting their health at risk. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes a liquid facelift is unsafe for a patient, he offers other non-surgical facelift options.
How long does it take to complete a liquid facelift treatment?
A liquid facelift usually takes about 30 minutes to complete.
What are the risks associated with a liquid facelift?
Patients may experience bruising, swelling, pain, and redness after a liquid facelift. In rare cases, patients may experience an allergic reaction, bacterial infection, and/or skin necrosis (destruction of the skin).
How long do the results of a liquid facelift last?
On average, the results of a liquid facelift last between six and 12 months. In some instances, patients may require liquid facelift treatments at three-month intervals.

Fortunately, Dr. Azizzadeh dedicates time and resources to craft a personalized liquid facelift treatment plan for each patient. This plan is designed to help a patient achieve the optimal results, as quickly as possible.
Are there long-term side effects associated with liquid facelift treatments?
Generally, a patient may experience some swelling and bruising after a liquid facelift, but these symptoms disappear on their own within a few days.
Can a liquid facelift help me look like my favorite celebrity?
A celebrity liquid facelift is not an option, and the procedure will not help a patient look like their favorite celebrity. Instead, a liquid facelift procedure is tailored to a patient, and it can help the patient achieve a natural-looking and symmetrical facial appearance.

A liquid facelift should not be performed during pregnancy.
How much does a liquid facelift cost?

A liquid facelift is designed to help a patient bolster their facial appearance. Other treatments may be explored if the procedure does not deliver the desired results, including facelift surgery.
Are there instances in which facelift surgery is a better option than a facelift without surgery?
Facelift surgery provides a long-term solution to correct sagging skin and other visible signs of aging in the face. The procedure requires a patient to go under the knife, and it can provide results that last seven to 10 years.
Comparatively, a liquid facelift provides a great option for those who are exploring how to get a facelift without surgery. A liquid facelift enables a patient to treat fine lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume in the same way as a facelift surgery. However, the results of a liquid facelift are temporary.
Which is a best treatment option: a liquid facelift or a traditional facelift?
