Many people of a variety of ages can benefit from a combination of non-surgical treatments to refresh their overall appearance. A liquid facelift at Freeman Plastic Surgery is a customized procedure that addresses each patient’s specific needs with injectables such as dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic. In Idaho Falls and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Dr. Mark Freeman and nurse practitioner Nancy Olsen, an injectable treatment specialist, offer liquid facelifts that require little downtime.

What Is a Liquid Facelift?
Women and men with mild jowls, crow’s feet, smile lines, and some loss of volume in the cheeks don’t necessarily need a surgical facelift. Instead, a liquid facelift accomplishes a cosmetic pick-me-up by carefully targeting problem areas with a combination of BOTOX or Dysport® and injectable fillers such as Perlane®, RADIESSE®, and JUVÉDERM®. Few cosmetic practices from Idaho Falls to Twin Falls can match the experience performing these advanced techniques to lift and contour the face that’s offered at Freeman Plastic Surgery.
Getting the best results from a liquid facelift requires an experienced practitioner to assess your unique needs and carefully plan your treatment. Just as Dr. Freeman tailors surgical facelifts to the specific aging concerns of each patient, our expert injector, Nancy, will include injections that target precise areas for your liquid facelift. Depending on the extent of your treatment, the procedure typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Because most injectables are formulated with an anesthetic, there is little discomfort during the procedure. However, some patients request a topical anesthetic prior to injections. You’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities after your treatment.
How long do the results last?
Because fillers and injectables such as BOTOX each have unique attributes, the duration of the results vary from patient to patient. The results of most dermal fillers last at least 9 to 12 months, but some fillers can last more than a year. JUVÉDERM’s latest filler, VOLUMA™ XC, can restore volume to the cheeks and lasts up to 2 years. BOTOX and Dysport typically need an additional treatment after about 4 months.
How dramatic are the effects?
One of the advantages of a liquid facelift is that it’s a subtle yet effective way to refresh your appearance. Co-workers and friends will likely pay you compliments such as, “you look great,” but not notice an obvious difference.
How much does a liquid facelift cost?
Because each procedure is customized for the needs of each patient, the cost varies. The price depends on the number of areas treated and how many injections are required to achieve optimal results.Back to Top
