A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that will sculpt, contour, and lift the face without surgical incisions. It uses biologically-compatible dermal fillers or fat injections to add volume and lift to specific facial features. Some fillers encourage collagen growth to promote the appearance of firmer, more supple skin.
