About Liquid Facelifts
The liquid facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that allows individuals to enjoy the benefits of a facelift without pursuing a major aesthetic procedure. This treatment at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery utilizes a specially formulated combination of relaxers and dermal fillers to restore smoothness and volume to the treated area, revealing a more youthful appearance. The injectable dermal fillers work by volumizing the face while minimizing wrinkles, and the relaxers create overall smoothness. To create more dramatic results, Dr. Michael J. Brown and his aesthetic team can employ the use of other processes, like chemical peels, medical-grade facials, or laser skin resurfacing.

"I would highly recommend Dr. Brown if you’re considering plastic surgery. Dr. Brown was recommended to me 20 years ago by another plastic surgeon’s nurse. That in itself spoke volumes. Immediately upon meeting him, I knew I found the right doctor to perform my breast implant surgery. He was caring, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable with the entire process. Mostly I felt his passion for his work. I sensed he truly loved his profession and had set his bar very high to give the best and most natural results. My own expectations were exceeded from the care I was given prior to, during and after my procedure. My breast implants were a success and Dr. Brown gave me exactly what I wanted. I was super pleased with the results. I recommended my sister and roommate to Dr. Brown for breast augmentation and they were also very happy with their results. About 8 months later I had some medical questions regarding a separate health issue. I reached out to Dr. Brown for advice. He spent so much time talking with me. What stood out and resonated with me, was he offered to talk to other medical professionals on my behalf to translate what I didn’t understand. He went above and beyond. Fast forward 20 years and 2 kids later, my breasts were still looking great but I wanted to exchange them for silicone. I also wanted to tighten the skin and remove the bulge above my cesarean section scar. I now live in New York and traveled down to Virginia to consult with him. I was greeted by his nurse, Amber. She wears many hats and is present from start to finish. It relieves a lot of stress when you have that one person to correspond with during such big decision and process as this. I’m impressed with her involvement on so many levels. Amber is a gem for his practice and they compliment each other making them a dynamic team. She’s in constant contact with me and super caring and interested. I wished I lived closer because I think we would be great friends. That’s how they make you feel at the Loudon Center for Plastic Surgery. My consult with Dr. Brown was everything I expected it to be. His warmth was evenly matched with my memories. Together, we had a plan to address my concerns. I was pleasantly surprised to learn of some procedures to treat my abdomen that were minimally invasive. My dates were set and when I arrived to my appointment I was happy that Dr. Brown’s surgical center was convenient and private. A hospital setting can’t compare to the personal care you receive there. Now I know how Beyonce felt when she reserved the entire maternity floor to deliver her baby. His operating room staff to include Clint and Angela were fantastic providing me comfort before, during and after my procedure. They not only made me feel physically at ease but emotionally as well. They constantly assured me everything was going to be great. I’m one week out and my results are awesome. I have a lot of healing ahead of me in the weeks to come but can tell it’s going to be a vast improvement. I’m so grateful for having Dr. Brown as my plastic surgeon. I can only hope he will never retire. I recommend him to anyone and everyone, near or far. His precision and expertise is priceless and any distance is worth giving your only body the best it deserves."- K.O. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

"I normally don’t take the time to write a review but due to how difficult it was for me to make the decision on cosmetic surgery coupled with deciding on which doctor and team to trust, I feel compelled to share my experience with others. Dr. Brown and his team are absolutely incredible. I had so many questions and concerns leading up to my surgery. Dr. Brown, Amber and Melissa answered every single one, eased my nerves and made me comfortable every step of the way including the day of surgery. During my recovery, Dr. Brown and Amber were always available for any questions and concerns I had. They all have been wonderful and I am truly pleased with the results and exceptional service provided. Thank you all for taking such good care of me and I highly recommend Dr. Brown and team!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 18, 2019
Candidates for liquid facelifts are men and women that would like to minimize the symptoms of aging and increase facial volume without planning for the recovery time of an aesthetic surgery. Liquid facelifts are an excellent choice for Ashburn, VA men and women hoping to smooth irregular pits and bumps on the skin while restoring a youthful appearance to the face. A liquid facelift at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery can raise droopy eyelids, plump up hollow temples or cheeks, and diminish dark circles and under eye bags. Liquid facelifts are also ideal for men and women in search of quicker results through nonsurgical techniques.
Prior to your liquid facelift, your cosmetic goals will be evaluated in order to decide what mixture of injectables should be utilized to achieve the desired results. The actual injection process for both the fillers and the relaxers is the same and begins with the identification of the injection sites. Next, the treatment area will be cleaned and local anesthesia will be used on the treatment area. Using a thin dermal needle and syringe, your injector will begin injecting the marked areas with fillers and relaxers. The entire procedure can be completed in-office within a matter of minutes.
What to Expect
The fillers and wrinkle relaxers utilized in our Ashburn, VA practice have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and have been considered safe for this procedure. The results of dermal fillers are usually recorded immediately while relaxer products can sometimes take up to a week to reveal the best results. If you are also interested in other aesthetic procedures, it may be in your best interest to wait until after healing from your injections. The longevity of your results depends upon the relaxers and fillers chosen for the liquid facelift. Some liquid facelift products only last up to four months while other products occasionally yield results much longer. Individuals should return to The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery for touch-ups to maintain optimal results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a liquid facelift cost?
The cost of a liquid facelift treatment will vary, depending on which injectables have been chosen to achieve your results. After listening to your concerns and aesthetic goals, a treatment plan will be created to give a better estimate of your out-of-pocket costs. Our financial team can also talk with you about any alternative payment methods that we accept at our Ashburn, VA facility.
How do I know which brands of injectables are right for me?
Different brands of both dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers may be more beneficial for different areas of the face. Additionally, the level of concentration in each brand of injectable may vary, creating alternative results. During your consultation, we will recommend the ideal brands to create your optimal outcome.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and wrinkle relaxer?
While a dermal filler is used to add volume to areas of the face, a wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, relaxes the facial muscle in order to diminish wrinkles. Dermal fillers are beneficial in eliminating the appearance of fine lines, such as those around the mouth. Wrinkle relaxers work to correct frown lines, such as those that appear between the eyebrows.
