Did you know that you can experience facial rejuvenation and achieve a younger-looking appearance without surgery? The liquid facelift is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes various injectable treatments to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and address the volume loss that is so common with aging. At the CENTER for Advanced Facelift Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh can create a liquid facelift treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
What Is a Liquid Facelift?
We all have varying degrees of wrinkles and folds in different areas of our face. These can now be addressed with injectables in place of a traditional facelift procedure. Certain aspects of a person’s face can be plumped up with fillers, the lines and wrinkles can be filled, and deep wrinkles can be relaxed with a neuromodulator like Botox. Most wrinkles and creases are caused by expressions in our face and muscle contractions. Through the use of a neuromodulator agent like Botox and hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm, along with longer-lasting injectable fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra, you can regain a youthful appearance in a quick treatment session with little to no recovery time. A liquid facelift can treat the following common problem areas:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Nasolabial folds
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Under eye hollows
- Hollow temples
- Thin lips
Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Azizzadeh will create a customized treatment plan to replace lost volume and minimize wrinkles using a combination of injectable treatments.

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Liquid Facelift Philosophy
Dr. Azizzadeh believes that a liquid facelift is a great option for people who do not want to deal with recovery time and/or the complications that can arise during a traditional surgical facelift procedure. He believes that if we can restore a youthful look to a person without having to perform surgery we lessen the possibility of complications. Dr. Azizzadeh says, “Any medical procedure that can give a patient beneficial results without having to undergo surgery is a positive thing.”
