The intent of a liquid facelift is to sculpt, contour, and lift the face while also getting rid of lines and wrinkles and adding volume to key areas of the face. A combination of injectable products are used to both fill the face and relax the muscles to achieve a more youthful appearance through a non-surgical method.
Whenever you enjoy going to the place where you are getting poked with needles, you know it is a special place. Fillers and botox made me look better than I have in my entire life. I trusted Dr. M and her team from the beginning and I am so happy I did.
