A liquid facelift is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes cosmetic injections, such as Botox and Juvéderm, to reverse the signs of aging and rejuvenate the face.

WHAT IS A LIQUID FACELIFT?

A liquid facelift is a term that describes non-surgical facial rejuvenation using a variety of cosmetic injections. These cosmetic injections include neuromodulators, such as Botox or Dysport, Hyaluronic Acid fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, and Kybella (a cosmetic injection that dissolves fat cells to reduce chin and neck fat.)

Cosmetic injections are the most popular type of cosmetic treatment on the market. Their continually growing popularity is due to their effectiveness at reducing the signs of aging and providing a natural but substantially more youthful look to your face without any downtime or recovery.

Different injections provide solutions for different problems. Each injectable has its own unique applications. Some offer longer-lasting results, while others are used to treat particular problems. The type of injectable you require will be dependent on your aesthetic goals, your anatomy, skin type, and location of injection.

During your initial consultation, our medical staff will carefully assess your face and help you determine the type of injection that will provide the most effective results with minimal complications.

COSMETIC INJECTIONS

Liquid facelifts in Philadelphia and Main Line from Dr. John Lee may incorporate the following cosmetic injections:

NUEROMODULATORS:

Neuromodulators smooth out fine lines and creases by relaxing the underlying muscles that create dynamic wrinkles.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. It is best used to smooth out crow’s feet (smile lines on the edge of eyes), moderate glabella lines (frown lines between eyes) and to smooth forehead wrinkles.

**Dr. John Lee was awarded the prestigious recognition as Top 250 (Top 1%) Provider of Botox in the country!

Dysport – Dysport, manufactured by the same company that makes Restylane/Perlane, is a neuromodulator, like Botox. This product is ideal for relaxing strong muscles located in the brow and jaw area (which can slim the jawline.)

DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, consist of volumizes substances that fill in wrinkles, augment facial features (like lip injections) and restore volume to areas of the face that have sunken with age.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Dr. John Lee only uses hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that have the highest safety profiles in the market.  The following fillers can be softened, manipulated, and even dissolved. The ability to control the outcome, not just today, but after many months, is very important to Dr. Lee.  He believes that the risks of using other types of products made from calcium/bone and plastic particles are not in the best interest of his patients.  

We only use the following FDA-approved products with the highest safety profiles:

Juvéderm Our most popular filler; it has a smooth consistency that is often desired to provide overall facial volume. Best used to give volume to lips and to fill in nasal labial folds (parenthesis around the nose area), marionette lines and jowls. Juvéderm can also soften wrinkles in the forehead (between eyes or glabella area.) Juvéderm is FDA approved to last up to 9-12 months. *

**Dr. John Lee was awarded the prestigious recognition as Top 250 (Top 1%) Provider of Juvéderm in the country!

Juvéderm Voluma Dr. Lee loves this filler to create a “lift” to the cheek area. This also helps to address the depression of the nasal labial folds by lifting the cheeks. Dr. Lee also prefers Voluma for his No. 1 injection procedure- lower lids injection to address the “sunken” or depression of the lower lids/upper cheek areas.

Building the cheeks can significantly provide a lift and structural change to the overall shape of the face. Typically, as we age, the sagging pulls the skin to the jowls area. Creating volume to the cheeks and lower lids area lifts that skin back to its place.

Juvéderm Voluma is the hardest of the HA fillers and is best for fine sculpting or creating mass that will not move/shift or change over time. Dr. Lee is renowned for his unique and creative use of this product for nose sculpting (also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty) and to create elongated chin (thus eliminating the need for chin implants).

These off label injections, including the very popular lower lids injections, should ONLY be performed by very highly skilled injector who has many years of injection experience in these specific areas- most injectors do not attempt to perform injections for lower lids, nose and chin areas due to its difficulty and possible complications.

Voluma is FDA approved to last up to 18-24 months. 

**Dr. Lee is one of the country’s highest-volume users of Voluma!

Restylane, Restylane Silk & Restylane Lyft – same family of fillers with a little harder consistency than Juvéderm, however not as long-lasting. Both Restylane fillers are FDA approved to last up to 6 months. *

FAT REDUCTION

Kybella – Submental fullness, or a double chin, is troublesome for many people today. While it may not be related to obesity, submental fullness can give the appearance of excess weight. Up until recent advances in cosmetic medicine, the only way to address a double chin was with plastic surgery, like liposuction. Now we can address this problem with an innovative injectable solution, Kybella.

The Kybella solution has been formulated to break apart the fat particles that accumulate beneath the chin. Based on deoxycholic acid, Kybella works with the body and its natural tendencies to metabolize fat. Through a series of precise injections (usually 2 or 3), fat cells become flooded with this substance and subsequently melt away.

HOW MUCH DOES A LIQUID FACELIFT COST?

A liquid facelift is a highly customizable procedure. Therefore, prices vary per patient depending on the unique parameters of their individualized treatment plan.

What Areas Can Be Improved?

Overall facial fullness and lift will occur. The cheeks will be fuller and plumper. The jawline will be more defined. Volume to the chin along with the marionette or corners of the mouth is also addressed. Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are smoothed out and softened.

How Long Does A Liquid Facelift Last?

The safest fillers are HA-based. Depending on the filler, they can last between 6 and 24 months.

There are other fillers out there claiming to last longer. However, they use foreign particles such as plastic and calcium. Dr. Lee does not use these products due to potential long-term side effects, such as nodule forming, which cannot be reversed. He believes that the product needs to be natural to the human anatomy and can also be manipulated or erased if there is an issue later.

WHY CHOOSE DR. JOHN LEE FOR YOUR COSMETIC INJECTIONS?

The results of a filler injection depend entirely on the injector- fillers are the tool, choosing the best product to achieve the desired result is important, but the artistry along with an innate understanding of the facial anatomy is what truly matters in providing optimal results. Dr. Lee is an eyelids/brow surgery expert who performs surgeries daily in the areas he injects- this is the level of expertise that everyone should expect and deserve!

Dr. Lee is one of the busiest and most experienced filler injectors in the country. He has been performing filler treatments for over 15 years and he is an oculofacial plastic surgeon. He knows the facial anatomy better than any nurses, dermatologists, or general plastic surgeons who perform everything, including breast/body procedures. Dr. Lee’s area of work is limited and focused on the same area that the liquid facelift focuses on.
