While surgery may be a great option for patients seeking dramatic, long-lasting facial rejuvenation, it is not the only option. At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, NC, we offer non-surgical procedures that produce natural results for patients that are not surgical candidates or interested in undergoing surgery.

As we age, we lose volume in the face. The lost volume is caused by the depletion of fat, bone, and collagen. When volume is lost, the face deflates similarly to a balloon deflating. By adding volume to the face, it will re-inflate the face and lift sagging skin. Adding volume to the cheeks and along the jawline will elevate sagging skin in the areas. We add the volume back to the individual fat pocket that lost the volume. Using this technique allows for the most natural results. The most common comment we hear from our patients after a liquid facelift is, “This is how I used to look.”
Our expert injectors use the newest and most comfortable techniques for liquid facelift injections in Charlotte, NC. Historically, fillers were injected with needles that were painful and could cause bruising and swelling. Today, our injectors use a needleless injection technique by replacing the needle with a blunt-tipped micro-cannula to inject the filler. It is less traumatic, more comfortable, and decreases the incidence of bruising.
Botox or Dysport, are utilized to relax facial muscles. Relaxing the facial muscles can soften wrinkles and can elevate sagging tissues. If the muscle that pulls down an area of the face is weakened, then that area of the face will lift. This technique is used to raise the corners of the mouth and define the neck.
Microbotox is a non-permanent, Botox-based treatment that leaves facial muscles unaffected, providing natural-looking results. Injections are made superficially, just below the skin’s surface, avoiding the ‘freezing’ effect that can occur with other Botox treatments. This treatment has shown to reduce pore size, reduce acne inflammation and scar appearance, tighten and smooth skin, and lessen your skin’s oil production.
Before a liquid facelift is performed, your specific needs and goals are addressed during a consultation at Carolina Facial Plastics. This allows our team to formulate a precise treatment plan and select the combination of facial injectables that will produce the best results for you.
Once a treatment plan is created, the liquid facelift procedure is performed. A liquid facelift can be performed in as quickly as thirty minutes or take over 2 hours depending on the number and types of injectables needed to achieve your anti-aging goals.
Because a liquid facelift in Charlotte is completely non-surgical, there is absolutely no downtime for patients other than mild bruising or swelling. It’s very common for individuals to return to their normal daily activities immediately upon leaving our office.
