What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
When you want to look younger, but aren’t ready for surgery, a non-surgical facelift, also called a liquid facelift, may be the solution you seek. This treatment is completely non-surgical and requires little downtime.
Technically, a liquid facelift isn’t a facelift at all. Instead, it involves the careful placement of neuromodulators (like Botox®, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau®) and dermal fillers (Restylane, Sculptra®, Radiesse® and more). A surgical lift requires skin removal and tissue and fat repositioning. Our non-surgical facelift uses only injectables to soften signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing using a fractional laser-like the Syneron Candela CO2RE or Lumenis ResurFX, Photofractional, and IPL may also be combined to improve skin texture and age spots. Tightening of the skin laxity can be achieved using fractional laser resurfacing in the same sitting.
While the liquid facelift isn’t surgical, for many patients, the results can rival those of a more invasive procedure. Patients experience a dramatic reversal of the appearance of aging.
Surgery is still the gold standard for facial rejuvenation, but if you’re not ready for surgery, a liquid facelift will soften your wrinkles and add more youthful contours around cheekbones, mouth, brow and eyes.

What Injectables Are Used in a Liquid Facelift in San Antonio?
A liquid facelift achieves dramatic facial rejuvenation by combining multiple injectables. Dr. Barrera carefully selects fillers and neuromodulators for each area of your face. By combining treatments, you’ll enjoy the benefits of multiple fillers, not just one.
Dermal fillers add volume to the face. We use fillers to fill in lines and wrinkles, to add volume, and to shape and contour. Dr. Barrera is familiar with all the top available cosmetic fillers including:
- Restylane Lyft®
- Restylane Defyne®
- Restylane Refyne®
- Restylane Silk®
Neuromodulators are the go-to choice for expression lines and wrinkles created by frequent facial expressions. By deactivating the muscles under the skin that cause these expressions, the skin creases less. These treatments all contain a purified form of the botulinum toxin. Formulations vary slightly between each of these products, but all achieve a similar result. Dr. Barrera will help you choose the best option for your treatment.
Dr. Barrera works with each patient individually to select injectables and choose injection locations for their liquid lift. Your customized plan will be created based on your aesthetic goals and your budget.
