Beverly Hills Liquid Facelift | RR Aesthetics
If you’ve browsed beauty blogs or scrolled through Instagram, you’ve probably come across the term “liquid facelift” – one of the latest and most buzzworthy ways to create a younger appearance without surgery, stitches or scarring.
A liquid facelift is a versatile, highly customizable procedure in which a skilled injector combines biocompatible dermal fillers with injectable neuromodulators like BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® in precisely targeted areas.
Depending on your goals, a liquid facelift can address a variety of concerns to make you appear years younger. When performed by a skilled injector, this procedure can erase fine lines and wrinkles, give you more contoured cheeks or plumper lips, provide lift to areas where you have lost volume, make you look more alert and well-rested, and define your chin and jawline.
Patients love this minimally invasive anti-aging solution because it provides fewer risks and complications than a surgical procedure, and also requires no downtime. During your liquid facelift appointment, we will use tiny needles to make a series of injections in specific places, depending on your facial anatomy and cosmetic goals. Fillers and neuromodulators work in concert to provide volume where your face needs it most and smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a natural, youthful look.

What to Expect During Your Liquid Facelift
The first step in any cosmetic procedure is to schedule a consultation, where your injector can assess your facial structure and skin type, and discuss your concerns and desired results. This private appointment is also your opportunity to ask all your questions about the procedure. The outcome of your consultation will be a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve the results you desire, including what high-quality injectables will give you the ideal results.
After your consultation, you will schedule your return to our Beverly Hills office for your liquid facelift. You should plan to block off about an hour of your day for the appointment. There is very little downtime afterward. You’ll often hear people call a liquid facelift a “lunchtime lift” because of how quick and easy it is.
How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?
The effects of a liquid facelift can last up to two years if you have a full correction – not overdone, but full. If you’re nervous, you don’t have to have all your injections in one visit. We suggest spreading out your full-face correction over several visits. This approach will allow us to place a base in the first visit and then reevaluate and do fine corrections in another visit. Most clients can achieve full correction in two visits.
Bear in mind, too, that not all injectable products last equally. For example, your body will gradually absorb hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm. Neuromodulators require maintenance sooner than fillers, so how long your liquid facelift lasts depends on which products we feel are the best choices to give you the most beautiful outcome. Scheduling quick, periodic touch-up treatments throughout the year can also help prolong your liquid facelift results.
What Are the Products Used in a Liquid Facelift?
Depending on your aesthetic goals and our knowledge of how each product works, we may use a variety of different facial fillers and freezers to contour your face. Read more about each one on our other pages:
Benefits of a Liquid Facelift
In comparison with a traditional surgical facelift, a liquid facelift offers many advantages, depending on your lifestyle, aesthetic goals and the concerns you hope to address. For example, younger patients or those with a less advanced degree of aging may choose to get a liquid facelift to address mild to moderate facial wrinkling. People who don’t have time to commit to a longer recovery process may also prefer a liquid facelift, since most patients can go back to their regular schedule shortly after getting their simple in-office procedure done.
Of course, one of the most appealing benefits of a liquid facelift is that it does not require any anesthesia, stitches, or scarring. Those who wish to look younger without surgery love this minimally invasive option because it requires little to no healing time and does not present the same risks that come with surgery. When you choose an experienced injector to perform your liquid facelift, the most common side effects are mild bruising, redness, swelling, bumps, and itching around the injection sites, all of which will resolve on their own soon after your appointment.
Many people also report that they like being able to avoid many of the expenses associated with a traditional facelift. When you choose injectable products, you will be able to eliminate many of the costs associated with a surgical procedure, including operating room and anesthesia fees.
The results of a liquid facelift are often more subtle and natural when compared to a traditional facelift. Instead of cutting into your skin and pulling it up and back, fillers plump the skin for a younger appearance. Injectables give your specialist a fine degree of control in deciding precisely where to place the injection, and how much of each product to introduce into each area. This accuracy results in a revitalized appearance without the “worked-on” look that can be associated with surgical procedures.

Beverly Hills Liquid Facelift FAQ
Is a Liquid Facelift Safe?
Yes; indeed, a liquid facelift carries much less risk than a traditional facelift surgery. Because fillers like Juvéderm are biocompatible, the chance of an allergic reaction is low. Though BOTOX derives from a purified toxin, the amount we use is far too small to represent any danger to humans. Side effects such as bruising, swelling, and redness are normally mild and are easy to manage at home with over-the-counter remedies such as ice packs.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Liquid Facelift?
We generally recommend liquid facelifts for our Beverly Hills patients who are in good overall health and are starting to worry about the signs of mild to moderate aging. A liquid facelift is an ideal solution for anyone who doesn’t want to take time out for a lengthy recovery, or who has any medical conditions that prevent them from being able to get surgery.
Please tell us beforehand if you’re taking aspirin or any other medicines or supplements that thin the blood, as these might increase your risk of bruising and bleeding. We don’t recommend liquid facelifts for women who are pregnant or nursing.
How Much Does a Liquid Facelift Cost in Beverly Hills?
The answer to this question will depend on the specific combination of products we use and the exact amount needed to fully resolve your aesthetic concerns. After meeting with you in person, evaluating your degree of aging, and asking you questions about what you hope to achieve with a liquid facelift, our experienced injectors can give you a more accurate estimate of your total price tag. In general, a liquid facelift tends to be much less expensive than a surgical facelift because it will save you money on fees associated with anesthesia, hospital privileges, and prescription medications.
When Will I See My Liquid Facelift Results?
You will be able to notice the results of dermal fillers immediately, though initial swelling may make specific areas such as the lips appear more prominent. You’ll usually start to see the effects of BOTOX three to five days after treatment. If you’re having your liquid facelift to look your best for a specific event such as a wedding, class reunion, or vacation, we suggest booking your appointment at least two weeks before to give your liquid facelift more time to take effect. You may also wish to return to our Beverly Hills clinic a couple of weeks after your initial appointment for a touch-up treatment.
