The VolumaLift, also called the LiquidLift or Liquid Facelift, is a series of cosmetic filler injections that effectively increases the volume of the face. Deflation of the facial features results in sagging skin that cosmetic injection can combat, creating a lifting effect. With improved fullness and shape, the natural curvatures of the features are restored. This creates a more youthful, desirable appearance. Patients are often asked to bring in pictures from their youth to help plan in restoring lost facial volume naturally.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
What is the Procedure for Liquid Lift
During a Liquid Facelift, the treatment gel is injected further below the surface of the skin than those traditionally performed for wrinkle and fold management. The deeper injections result in a longer duration of effect in the areas deficient in volume. During a session where a patient receives injections of a filler, they will experience minimal discomfort or none at all. There is minimal downtime and results can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years depending on the products used.
My liquid facelift with Dr. Rubinstein was exactly 1-month ago. I'd done it before for my daughter's wedding and wanted to do it again for my son's. I was a little nervous but Dr. Rubinstein was very gentle, informative and kind. His staff, especially the receptionist, was wonderful, as well. My recovery was better than expected. Bruising was my main concern, because I bruise very easily but to my surprise the bruising has cleared quickly and my results show. My results are really natural and beautiful...I'm soooo ready for the wedding. I'll definitely be coming back to Dr. Rubinstein for result maintenance. He is so knowledgeable and provides you with these slide shows that show you different procedures I didn't even know about. Being more informed about what procedures are possible, I think I'm going to return for more procedures with him and bring my friends. All of my friends and family have commented on how natural I look. I couldn't be happier with my experience.
Who is a Candidate for a Liquid Lift?
Injectable fillers are an excellent option for patients who do not wish to undergo an invasive cosmetic surgery but seek the effects these treatments can produce. Patients interested in the VolumaLift procedure have the option to receive Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, or Sculptra injections. The number of treatments that best restore volume to the face varies, depending on the injectable gel utilized. Typically, Restylane and Juvederm require 6 to 8 syringes to create desired results, while Radiesse can smooth and plump the skin with 3 to 5 syringes. Sculptra may require 1 to 2 vials of gel, and averages 3 treatment sessions. Often, combinations of the fillers are used to create optimal results.
