For patients who want to avoid surgery or preview the results of a surgical facelift, a liquid facelift combines noninvasive wrinkle treatments to smooth lines and add volume to temporarily correct signs of aging on the face.

Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City create a unique liquid facelift treatment plan for every patient's needs that may include injectable dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and others), injectable wrinkle relaxers (BOTOX, Xeomin, Dysport), or autologous fat transfers (a minimally invasive procedure that remove excess fat from one area of the body and then injects the purified fat into areas of the face the need volume).

Dr. Caplin is really wonderful. My mother saw her at the beginning of 2018 for a lower facelift and the results, follow up and care were awesome. As it probably happens, my mother got the itch again in 2019 to have a breast lift & augmentation - so of course I said I would do it too. Dr. Caplin listened to us and the results are better than we expected. We were seen on the same day and the team at CSA remembered us from the prior year - oh we remember your mom's dancing after surgery. :) Yes, that happened...


To get the patient's best results, other skin treatments can be used also with injectables and fat transfer to dramatically improve the health, texture, and tone of the skin (including chemical peels, laser treatments, and dermabrasion) for a beautiful, youthful appearance.

Products Used?

A liquid facelift is a combination of derma fillers, such as Perlane, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm, as well as muscle relaxants such as BOTOX or Dysport. These are injected directly into the areas that need reshaping, lifting and additional volume in order to reduce signs of aging.

The products are commonly injected into the forehead to soften frown lines, around the eyes to diminish crow’s feet, into the cheeks, as well as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines. Some of these products are also used to enhance the appearance of the lips. The combination of products can take years off the facial appearance. The results following a liquid facelift are temporary, however, depending on the products used can last from 6 months to 2 years.

I had a smart lift and many other facial procedures done by Dr. Nuveen I look amazing I look at least 15 years younger, I recommend Dr. Nuveen he is fabulous and his staff is the best staff ever, I have never been so happy with my results!


During/After The Procedure

Treatment is designed to address an individual’s specific facial condition. Local anesthetic may be applied to ease the patient’s discomfort with the pricking from injections. The fillers are introduced gradually to spots needing treatment with fine needle. There may be swelling and redness on treated areas, mild bruising may also be present and these will fade after a few hours.

There is no downtime with this procedure, but since it combines several injections, patients must avoid any pressure on the face area and strenuous activities are restricted.

    Liquid Facelift FAQs

    How safe?

    All products used are approved by the fda and backed with comprehensive testing. Prior to treatment, details of each product will be discussed and reiterated in the treatment plan. It is important to find a reputable injector who understands how to use each product so that a safe and effective outcome can be attained.

    How many reinjections?

    It depends on how long the patient wishes to maintain the achieved facial enhancement. Muscle relaxants, such as botox, normally only last up to 4 months. Derma fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Injections are repeated when the practitioner and the patient feels its necessary, which is usually around the time the visible signs of aging slowly reappear. Even though some consider this a “high maintenance” way to maintain a youthful appearance, many patients feel that this outweighs the risks of invasive procedures such as a traditional facelift.

    Combination procedures?

    A liquid facelift significantly helps in reshaping and regaining youthful contours of the face. Skin irregularities such as age or sunspots may be corrected with additional treatments that target the upper layers of the skin. Chemical peels, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion are some options to consider combining with the injectables chosen for treatment how safe?
