One-Hour Liquid Facelift
Look up to 10 years younger in about an hour with Body Beautiful Spa’s Liquid Facelift!
The liquid facelift at Body Beautiful Day Spa is a non-surgical procedure that uses injections of dermal fillers and Botox to achieve results that are comparable to surgical facelifts – WITHOUT THE DOWN TIME OR EXPENSE! Fillers and Botox are used to plump features and fill cheeks, smooth lines and wrinkles, and to firm skin. The results are impressive, taking up to 10 years off in about an hour!
The Use of Botox
The use of Botox in addition to dermal fillers such as Juvederm in a Liquid Facelift provides better, longer-lasting results. Botox, approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002, blocks the nerve impulses that cause muscle contractions. Botox relaxes overactive muscles that are responsible for creating facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, deep brow furrows, and frown lines.
Botox can be especially useful when dermal fillers have been used to fill in expression lines, such as the creases that form when you smile, as repeated over-use of the surrounding muscles will cause the filler to break down more quickly. This breakdown shortens the length of time before more injections are needed to maintain results.
The Use of Juvederm
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Because hyaluronic acid is present in everyone’s skin, it is an exceptionally well tolerated treatment. Juvederm is injected to add youthful volume to vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds (folds from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corner of the mouth to the chin), tear troughs, and cheeks.

How is the procedure performed?
Depending on the fillers being used and the areas being treated, your Body Beautiful Day Spa in Phoenix | Scottsdale medical specialist may use a topical or local anesthetic to numb the injection sites before beginning your procedure. In some cases, a nerve block may also be used. Once the treatment areas are numb, the medical specialist will inject each area, using a different needle for each individual product. You can expect most injections to last only a few seconds, with the entire procedure taking about an hour to perform.
Is the procedure painful?
You may feel some slight discomfort from the injections during the procedure, but anesthetics applied before, and sometimes during, the procedure will minimize this discomfort.
What is the recovery like?
In general, the recovery time is minimal, with some slight redness, swelling, bruising and discomfort occurring in some people. Ice packs and over-the-counter medications can be used to treat these after-effects.
Most men and women resume their regular activities right after their procedures. There may be temporary swelling and perhaps minor bruising that can be circumvented (call us to find out how), which can be easily covered with makeup.
When will I begin to see results, and how long will they last?
Immediately after your liquid facelift you’ll be able to see the initial results, and you can expect those results to evolve and improve during the days that follow, as Botox begins to take effect and any initial swelling and redness resolves.
The duration of your results will vary, based on the filler (such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and others) or injectable used. Fillers last generally from a few months to as long as two years. The effects of Botox usually wear off in about six months. You can extend your results with touch-up appointments. Your practitioner can help develop a schedule that will keep you looking your best.
