Liquid Facelift Overview
A “liquid facelift” is a nonsurgical alternative to traditional facelift surgery. The procedure uses a combination of products to lift the skin, add volume and create a brighter, younger appearance. Dr. Beck offers Dallas area patients many alternatives when it comes to aesthetic beauty treatments. He injects derma fillers to add volume to depressed areas on the face, such as the cheeks, lips, under the eyes, and in the nasolabial folds. He also intermixes muscle relaxers, such as BOTOX, to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our office offers a full line of skin rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels, laser treatments and dermabrasion to enhance the skin’s surface. By using a combination of these treatments, patients can enjoy a beautiful and improved appearance. Dr. Beck will discuss all of these alternatives during the initial consultation.
Liquid Facelift Reviews
"23 Years Old, Juvederm Ultra Plus - I could not have picked a better doctor for my Juvederm experience. When we spoke before he procedure, he took the time to go over what my desired looks were and to describe what would happen. He was very thoughtful and I felt like he truly listened to what I wanted, he also emphasized that we were both on the same page for wanting natural results, which i feel is incredibly important for a procedure on your face.When he began the procedure, I felt ok. I didn't feel him injecting, but I wound up feeling anxious, light headed and as if I was about to pass out. I told him about it, and then promptly did pass out for a few second. The way that he and his staff reacted after that, I couldn't be more grateful. He brought me water, ice packs, a fan, and offered me a snack to get me back on my feet. He was so calm and assuring that it wasn't a big deal, and told me to take my time so we could get started again when I was ready. I was embarrassed, but he handled it so well. Once we got ready to begin again, he kept me calm and assured me we could take as many breaks as I needed, and to let him know if I got uncomfortable. Luckily, I didn't pass out again and we were able to finish 10 minutes.After the procedure, I had a bit of swelling, but he did a wonderful job to not give me a single bruise. Also, a few days later, I noticed there was a small space that looked as if it was missing filler compared to the surrounding areas. I let him know and he was more than willing to let me come back in to have it touched up and let me leave with the results that I wanted.Dr. Beck is truly a wonderful doctor who will make sure you're 100% satisfied with the results you get. I'm so grateful for not only his fantastic results, but also the fact that you can tell that he really cares about his patients. - - I had thin lips prior to juvederm, and after I'm able to have natural looking, but better than the original lips. I was never really uncomfortable with them, but I felt they could use a bit of an enhancement. I was worried mostly about having the infamous "duck lips", but Dr. Beck agreed that we would aim for a natural result.I did have a bit of swelling that didn't fully go down until about two weeks, but I had no bruises.I love my results and will continue to get more as needed."- C. / RealSelf / Sep 24, 2016
"Fuller, Even Lips - Dallas, TX - Dr. Beck was very professional and informative. I appreciated his professional advice about different product/procedure options. Everything that he told me about what to expect was accurate. I also appreciated the care and attention that I received as he made the procedure as painless as possible. (VERY little discomfort) His staff was also very friendly. I would recommend Dr. Beck to others! - - I had been wanting more even looking lips, my lips didn't look even and the edges of my lips/mouth weren't full. I had a consult with Dr. Beck and informed him that I didn't want anything dramatic, that I just wanted my lips to look a little fuller and to even them out. I also told him that I was a "baby" when it came to pain and that I wanted to avoid any and all pain. He explained all of my options and what I could expect as far as pain, immediate and long term results. EVERYTHING that Dr. Beck told me was 100% accurate! I was happy with my results and would definitely do this procedure again and also try other procedures as well."- M. / RealSelf / May 01, 2016
"I Love Dr. Beck - Dallas, TX - He took so much time and made sure to give me exactly what I wanted. I've never had a doctor take so much time consulting with me to make sure it was perfect and it is! - - I had Botox, juvederm Valoom in my cheeks and juvederm ing lips. I'm 31 and naturally thin and my face has been looking very drawn and hollow. Dr beck has made my self confidence sky Rocket! Everything looks so natural and people keep telling me how great I look and yet it's so natural they can't tell I had anything done. I'm so thrilled and even my husband can't believe the difference (though originally he was against it). I can't wait until my next treatment!"- T. / RealSelf / Jun 05, 2016
"Love my Cheeks and Youthful Glow! - Dallas, TX - Dr. Beck is highly skilled in the field of injectables. He took an extended amount of time with me and his technique was virtually painless. I did have some bruising and swelling, but I bruise with Botox, so that is expected and normal for my face. He is knowledgeable and patient and works with you to achieve your desired outcome in the most natural state. I was searching for a highly skilled doctor who would deliver outstanding results and I am so happy that I found Dr. Beck. - - It has been about 3 weeks since I had injections with Dr. Beck. His technique is so skilled and deliberate that it didn't really hurt and the outcome is spectacular. I did have some bruising after, but that is to be expected with an injection that goes down to the bone. After the bruising and swelling went away, I now have beautiful cheeks that are in the right spot, as well as the marionette lines are lessened and there is no hollowing of my jowls. It is the most perfect outcome from a relatively simple procedure. My husband keeps saying "your face looks so young", which is exactly what I wanted. As well, all of my friends think I look refreshed but not injected. I am truly thrilled with the results!! I even go out with out makeup now, as my skin is firm and fresh, and I no longer need to apply makeup every day. Love the results."- C. / RealSelf / May 22, 2016
"Exceptionally Skilled & Knowledgeable - North Dallas, TX - I am extremely happy with the results of my Voluma and Botox. Dr. Beck is extraordinarily knowledgeable, especially about all of the products and how they work in the body. He is so precise with injections (& I felt nothing by the way) that I had no bruising or swelling at all (contrary to my past filler procedures with my former physician). I was impressed by the amount of time Dr. Beck spent discussing everything with me, answering my questions, and performing the procedures. He is very methodical and professional yet very personable. I will definitely be his dedicated client for all of my future cosmetic needs! In addition, his staff is refreshingly friendly and helpful. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Beck and his staff."- P. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2016
Liquid Facelift 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*.
Liquid Facelift During/After Surgery
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 Expected Cost
The price for a liquid facelift will vary greatly depending on what and how much is being injected. Some patients will need multiple syringes of the muscle relaxer product, and several syringes of filler to produce the desired outcome. Any additional treatments, such as a chemical peel or dermabrasion, will further increase the overall cost. Schedule an appointment for a customized consultation with Dr. Beck to determine the cost of your procedure.

Liquid Facelift FAQs
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.
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.
