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. To learn more about liquid facelifts, contact our Ashburn, VA facility at your earliest convenience.
"Doctor brown is absolutely amazing. His staff is always polite, informative, and helpful. Doctor Brown takes his time on each client which I love. He knows exactly how to achieve what I want each time I go."- M.B. / Yelp / Jul 19, 2019
"I had a great experience with my breast augmentation with Dr. Brown in February 2020. Based on his experience and reputation, I was comfortable with doing a procedure that I had been considering for over 10 years! I finally pulled the trigger and very happy that I went with Dr. Brown. I now recommend him to all my friends if they tell me they’re considering a boob job! If you’re not squeamish, I highly recommend watching the surgeries on his YouTube channel. It’s obvious that he’s very skilled at what he does and has years of experience. During the videos, you will hear him explaining why he may make an incision a certain way or take various steps to have the best outcome aesthetically but also to minimize risks of complications. I also checked out his before and after pictures and saw that his patients have a nice, symmetric look that’s probably about as natural as you can get. I’ve seen before and after pictures with other surgeons where the results are all over the place or there’s weird nipple placement, etc. After discussing it with friends, I found out that he’s a highly reputable surgeon in the area and I happen to know several people that have had great results with him which made me feel even better about doing a procedure with him. He also helped me make the best decision for me regarding size and type of implant based on my lifestyle and goals for the type of look I was going for. He will take the time to explain why different types of implants and sizes may not work with your anatomy, etc or rather than allowing you to go with a size that may be too big. On the surgery day, the anesthesiologist, nurses, and Dr. Brown were awesome--very friendly/positive and kept me informed about what to expect. Dr. Brown even called me in the evening after my surgery to make sure everything was going well! I’ve had several follow up appointments just to check on the recovery and progress that all went smoothly. I’m thankful I had zero complications and extremely happy with my new look which I attribute to finding a great surgeon."- A.F. / Yelp / Jul 29, 2020

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.
