What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift is a cosmetic treatment that helps patients enjoy the effects of a surgical facelift without having to undergo a complex procedure. For a more youthful appearance, Dr. Michelle Eagan uses a mixture of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to refresh the complexion and add volume to the skin. The injectable dermal fillers add volume to the skin while decreasing fine lines, and the wrinkle relaxers create a smoother complexion.

"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

Is A Liquid Facelift For You?
Ideal candidates for a liquid facelift are men and women who want to decrease the signs of aging and add volume to the skin without undergoing cosmetic surgery. This treatment option helps smooth the complexion and reduces blemishes, like wrinkles or fine lines. Additionally, a liquid facelift adds volume to the skin, which contours your cheeks and softens your features. A liquid facelift at New Orleans Plastic Surgery can lift sagging eyelids, add volume to hollow temples or cheeks, and decrease bags and dark circles. Additionally, it works well for men and women seeking quick results.
Before your procedure, Dr. Eagan will consider your cosmetic goals and select the best mixture of injectables. For both dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, Dr. Eagan starts your procedure by marking the injection sites. This will help her place the injectables in the best spots. Next, your skin is cleaned, and we apply local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Using a thin dermal needle and syringe, Dr. Eagan will inject fillers and relaxers into the desired treatment areas. Dr. Eagan can perform this nonsurgical procedure in-office and within a matter of minutes.
What to Expect
At our New Orleans, LA practice, we only use wrinkle relaxers and fillers approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Right after your procedure, you can see the final results of your fillers. However, with wrinkle relaxers, it can take 3 – 7 days before seeing your final results. If you are interested in additional plastic surgery treatments, you may need to wait until your treatment areas have fully healed. The longevity of your results depends on the products we used during your liquid facelift. Some products only last for 3 – 4 months while others last much longer. To maintain your results, we will help you determine when to schedule your follow-up appointment.
Liquid Facelift FAQ
Are liquid facelifts safe?
Yes, liquid facelifts are generally considered safe for a majority of patients. All of the wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers used for our liquid facelifts are FDA-approved safe and effective.
How much does a liquid facelift typically cost?
The cost for a liquid facelift will depend on which injectables are used to achieve your desired results. During your consultation with Dr. Eagan, she will examine your skin and talk to you about your aesthetic goals to create a customized liquid facelift plan for you. After your personalized plan has been formulated, we will be able to estimate your costs. Our financial team can also talk with you about different payment methods.
What is the difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers work to reduce and smooth dynamic wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Dermal fillers reduce lines, especially around the mouth, replace lost volume, usually in the cheek area, and plump up the lips by injecting an FDA-approved filler (usually hyaluronic acid).
How long do the results of a liquid facelift last?
The results of a liquid facelift can be long-lasting, and many can see their results last months or years depending on the products used. While wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® typically last about four months, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® can last up to a year. Most patients opt to have maintenance procedures at about 6 –12 months, depending on their needs and aesthetic goals.
