Liquid Facelift in Fort Lauderdale & Miami
At Forever Young MedSpa in Fort Lauderdale, liquid facelift (also referred to as a non-surgical facelift) is an outstanding solution to reversing the signs of aging. The best part, it’s less expensive than a surgical facelift and requires a much faster recovery period. It’s perfectly natural for the skin on the face to not be as plump as it was when you were younger. While aging can be beautiful, some patients feel the drooping or sagging skin will make them appear older than they actually are or want to look. If you’ve experienced this, our Fort Lauderdale liquid facelift might be the best solution for you.
We conveniently see patients all over the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area. Our medical aesthetic rejuvenation practice is in sunny Cooper City, a short trip from any of the major cities in southern Florida.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical treatment where we will inject dermal fillers to reverse the effects of aging on your skin. Liquid facelifts are perfect for those with fewer wrinkles and mild sagging.
*If you have more advanced effects of aging, you may need a surgical facelift.
The injected dermal fillers replace fat (volume) that has been reduced over time and provide your skin a smoother, plumper appearance. Dermal fillers help to regenerate collagen and elastin which help support your skin once it is injected. Your skin’s collagen framework weakens as you age and use your facial muscles more. Moisture and flexibility can be lost, leading to wrinkles.
There are many types of fillers we use. In general, they range in viscosity or how thick or thin the filler is. The area(s) we are injecting determines if we use a thinner or thicker type of filler that will be used. There are many FDA-approved fillers we use such as Restylane, Lyft, Silk, Refyne, Defyne, Sculptra, Versa, and the Juvederm family of fillers. Some patients also choose to augment their liquid facelift by adding in PDO threads that provide an additional lifting effect filler alone cannot accomplish.
What are the benefits of a liquid facelift?
As one of the leading medical spas in Fort Lauderdale, we’ve had the pleasure of treating thousands of patients with fillers. Below, we’ve included some of the benefits of getting a liquid facelift.
- Lifting of the mid and lower face
- Plump up your cheeks

Who are the Best Candidates for a non-surgical facelift?
Ideal candidates for a liquid facelift include patients who have mild signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles or minimal volume loss) and do not have excessively sagging skin or developed jowls.
Patients considering a liquid facelift need to understand that the treatments require maintenance and are designed to give you a boost in volume or smooth out wrinkles and that most patients will need at least annual touchups.
Keep in mind that there are limits to what fillers can do while preserving your natural look. If you have jowls or loose excess skin on your face and neck, fillers can’t effectively address that completely however lasers or Microneedling RF can help improve areas of laxity.

Liquid Facelift FAQs
What are the risks involved?
The potential risks and side effects aren’t nearly as severe as a surgical facelift. However, a liquid facelift may still be accompanied by minor bruising. Most patients have minimal bruising when injections are placed along the jawline, in the nasolabial folds, or even in the cheeks. The most significant amount of bruising comes from injections placed underneath the eyes. A liquid facelift offers faster recovery, fewer potential complications, and a more attractive price tag than a complete facelift. Facelift surgery requires 10-14 days of recovery time. Ultimately, you should carefully compare the risks and benefits of all cosmetic treatments with a trusted doctor before any procedures.
How long do the results last?
As with most non-surgical treatments, the results will not be permeant. You’ll likely need to have the treatment touched up or additional filler added annually. Generally speaking, most patients will require about 30% more filler per year so prices are much less than the original treatment. This will all be best discussed during your consultation, where our team will lay out a timeline for you to follow.
Does a liquid facelift hurt?
At Forever Young MedSpa, our average practitioner has over a decade of expertise in medical aesthetics and our practice is exclusive to this field. The treatment consists of a few tiny injections that can sting a bit, but overall there should be very little pain.
