Liquid Facelift Pricing
We believe you get what you pay for, but you should only pay for what you get.
At Reflections, we price our dermal fillers and Botox, the products used to achieve a Liquid Facelift, by the amount used. In Botox, that’s $15 per unit, with most patients using between 15-45 units. In Dermal Fillers, we price by the syringe, starting at $650 a syringe. Most Liquid Facelifts range between $2500 – 3500 at our offices in New Jersey. Exact pricing will be quoted, based on your individual needs and wants, during your free consultation with the doctor.
How to find the best doctor for your Liquid Facelift
It seems like everyone is offering Botox and Fillers these days, but finding a truly gifted injector can be difficult. A skilled and experienced injector makes all the difference in your results, though. So here are the things to look for that will help you find the best doctor for your liquid facelift, in New Jersey, or anywhere else:
- Experience: look for a doctor who’s been injecting dermal fillers and Botox most days for the past several years. If they have been, then they’ll likely have some awards to show off – like a Top 250 Award (previously called Diamond or Black Diamond) from Allergan (makers of Botox and Juvederm), or a Presidential level award from Galderma (makers of Restylane). These awards show that they’ve purchased a lot of Botox and Fillers, and prove they’ve got a good bit of experience under their belt.
- Skill: read online reviews and look at their before and afters – are they skilled at creating the kind of natural-looking results you want for people who previously looked like you do now?
- Training: Ask about your doctors’ qualifications and training in injectables. Bonus points if they’re training other doctors on how to inject!
Our practice has received a Top 250 / Diamond award from Allergan for the last 5 years and several Presidential awards from Galderma, we have high patient reviews ratings on all the top sites and a gallery full of great, natural-looking results, and our physicians frequently train other doctors on the newest injection techniques.
Frequently Asked Questions about Liquid Facelift
You should expect some swelling and redness after your treatment. For most patients any redness resolves in a couple of hours and can be easily covered with makeup, allowing them to return to normal activities immediately after treatment. Swelling should be mild to moderate, although certain areas, like the lips, are more prone to swelling, and may stay swollen for a few days. Most patients find this swelling is mild enough that others wouldn’t notice it, and so it shouldn’t prevent you from returning to work or attending social events.
Bruising is rare but possible. Activities that raise your blood pressure, such as intense workouts, can increase your risk of bruising, so we suggest you avoid this for 12 hours following treatment. Should you develop a bruise, we will happily provide you with complimentary laser treatments to help speed up the healing process.
Vigorous rubbing of the treated area may negatively affect your results. Washing your face gently shouldn’t create a problem, but laying face-down in a massage chair for an hour could be problematic, so plan to avoid anything like that for at least 24 hours.
What kind of numbing is used? Will it hurt?
A Liquid Facelift is an injectable procedure, which is generally considered to be very comfortable by our patients. Botox injections are superficial and patients find these small pricks to be quick and easy. Filler injections are often placed deeper, but most filler products come with lidocaine numbing mixed into their formulation, which causes numbs the area as it’s being treated. On the rare occasion that we use a filler without lidocaine, or for patients who are sensitive, we can use both topical numbing creams and/or numbing injections to ensure the experience is comfortable and easy.
What’s a one-needle Liquid Facelift? What’s an 8 point Liquid Facelift?
There are several different named techniques for liquid facelift floating around the internet these days. The 8 Point Liquid Facelift is a formulaic approach to the liquid facelift. It outlines exactly where to inject, in what order. While it may be a good framework for teaching newbie injectors how to view the face, we don’t subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach like this technique advocates.
A One-Needle Liquid Facelift is a technique that uses a single opening to inject the dermal fillers into the lower half of the face. We try to limit the number of injection points we use, and we use cannulas like this technique does (because it helps limit swelling and bruising), but we don’t limit ourselves to a single injection point for everyone. Why? Because we care most about your results. Whether you have 1, 2, 3, or more injection points doesn’t affect your comfort during the procedure, overall risk, or the timing of the procedure. But it can affect your results.
Our physician injectors are trained in all of the top injection techniques and focus on creating the most natural results. We promise you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what we’re able to achieve during your liquid facelift procedure.
Maximizing Your Liquid Facelift Results
One of the most exciting innovations in the field of cosmetic medicine has been the use of our own bodies’ growth and healing factors to boost the results of lasers and injectables. In specific, a breakthrough study from Italy showed that combining PRP with dermal fillers not only boosted the longevity of the result, but it also created lasting change for collagen regrowth in the treated areas. This means adding PRP to your liquid facelift, in a procedure that’s now being called the Vampire Facelift, not only extends the Liquid Facelift’s results but actually helps improve the skin’s health and youthfulness on a cellular level. Because PRP is such an affordable procedure, this makes the process very cost-effective in the long-term.
Alternatives to a Liquid Facelift
When considering any cosmetic procedure, we believe it’s important to know what other options you might consider. Our practice offers a wide variety of treatment options, so that we are able to match each patient with a treatment that not only offers the results they’re after but also fits their lifestyle needs, including downtime and budget. Here are some alternative treatments we frequently discuss during Liquid Facelift consultations at our practice:
The Liquid Facelift is only able to create a natural-looking lift to the extent that your face has lost volume, or fat. When dermal fillers are pushed to lift away wrinkles that are caused due to skin laxity or muscle sag, it often creates a distorted, overly-filled (“cat-like”) result. In order to create a natural result, you need to understand exactly what changes have occurred in the underlying anatomy, and then use the proper treatment techniques to correct those. When skin laxity is a part of the problem, and instant results are desired, Thread Lifts offer the ideal solution. They lift the skin instantly, and provide collagen support over time, for skin that’s more elastic and firm in the long run. This can be used in combination with a Liquid Facelift, or on its own. The pricing for this procedure is comparable, by area, to a Liquid Facelift. There may be a little more downtime with this procedure, as some patients find they swell a little more with this, and prefer to take the evening off after their procedure.
Dermal fillers offer a nice, temporary result for restoring lost fat volume. Many patients appreciate that this procedure offers low commitment (the fillers dissolve over time, and can be dissolved quite quickly if you change your mind about the procedure), especially for their first few treatments. But once patients have enjoyed the results of dermal fillers, they often start asking how they can prolong their effects or what more permanent option there might be. Fat transfer is the most permanent fat restoration option. During this procedure, we harvest fat from an unwanted area, typically your belly or love handles, and transfer it to the face. The results are your own cells, happily transplanted into a new home, where they will continue to live for the foreseeable future. There is a longer downtime associated with this procedure, and the cost is higher. Although in the long run, this is much more cost-effective. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia by our board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Karolak.
The Liquid Facelift does have limits on what it can do, and for whom. At a certain point, for all of us, sagging of the muscles in our faces will occur. A Facelift surgery is the only way to lift sagging muscles. While improvement can be achieved with volume restoration and skin rejuvenation, full correction will eventually require a facelift. For those patients who decide surgery will never be right for them, we provide some of the nation’s best non-surgical physicians who offer cutting-edge treatments that seek to create natural improvements that will keep you looking great for your age your entire life. For those who wish to truly defy aging, we offer a unique facelift experience, performed under local anesthesia, by a top facial plastic surgeon who has spent his entire career focusing on creating the most natural facelift results.
