As we age, our face naturally loses volume, wrinkles appear, and hollow areas form. For those who are concerned about these effects, there are many options available, from over-the-counter creams to facelift surgery. If you’re ready for a solution that is safe and highly effective but still minimally invasive and non-surgical, the liquid facelift is an outstanding option. This treatment is fully customizable and can give you renewed youthfulness and a brighter outlook.
At Slim Studio, we take pride in our skill, artistic vision, and commitment to client care. Our master injectors have many years of combined experience and are excited to guide patients through the entire liquid facelift experience from start to finish. We strive to deliver the best liquid facelift Atlanta has to offer.
A liquid facelift is a customized combination of injectable dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and neuromodulators designed to address signs of aging in the face, including wrinkles and fine lines, loss of volume, and skin laxity. Because this procedure is performed with injectables, it is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and requires little to no downtime.
Neuromodulators are a family of injectables, including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, that work by changing the way muscles in the face are able to move by blocking chemical signals. Neuromodulators essentially paralyze tiny underlying facial muscles, preventing wrinkles from appearing. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are widely versatile and can be used to perform eyebrow lifts, forehead lifts, and lip lifts, treat frown lines and crow’s feet, address a dimpled chin, and many other uses.
Some of the things neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can help with include:
Botox was the first FDA-approved botulinum toxin neuromodulator and is a staple in most cosmetic offices. It has extensive clinical research behind it and has been an industry staple for addressing fine lines and wrinkles for decades. Botox can offer reliably smooth and younger-looking skin.
Xeomin is an FDA-approved treatment that works to prevent muscles under the skin from contracting, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Xeomin is the product of a double-filtered technique called XTRACT, taking the active ingredient, incobotulinumtoxinA, and removing proteins and unnecessary components. The result is a cleaner, purer form of neuromodulator, presenting a lower risk of allergic reactions.
Dysport is a neuromodulator injection that can relax facial wrinkles. A highly effective treatment, 98% of users report Dysport gave them a natural-looking result while smoothing and softening their wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport can last up to 3-4 months and, with proper maintenance treatment, can create long-lasting results that significantly improve your facial features.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, are made with a synthetic version of a substance occurring naturally in the body. They are often used to treat the lips, chin and jawline, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and temples as part of a liquid facelift. HA fillers can add volume to the skin, as well as smooth creases, fine lines, and wrinkles. Because these are biocompatible fillers, there is very little risk of allergy, and they offer a highly natural-looking result.
Juvéderm is a family of hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Our expert injectors will help decide which of the Juvéderm options will work best for you based on your goals and needs.
The Restylane HA fillers are an excellent option for anyone interested in rejuvenating their skin as part of a liquid facelift.
Deoxycholic acid can also be found naturally in the body and is used to improve the appearance of fat under the chin. It works by breaking down fatty tissue cells to reduce or eliminate unwanted pockets of fat.
Kybella can be used to address a double chin or “submental fat” underneath the chin. This injectable breaks down the fat pocket for a smoother, more toned appearance.
Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) refers to an injectable used to address facial fat loss. As a person ages, the fat and skin on their face will begin to thin, leading to a loss of volume and a sunken or sagging appearance. Injectable poly-l-lactic acid increases the body's production of new collagen, leading to a natural improvement in a person's facial features.
Sculptra is a highly effective poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) FDA-approved treatment that adds volume to a person's facial skin. Sculptra can also be used to give more volume to the buttocks, and as such can be used as part of a non-surgical buttlift. Sculptra works to activate the skin's natural regenerative process by generating collagen in the treatment area. The result is a gradual, subtle effect that looks healthy and natural.
Injectable calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to address moderate to severe facial laxity, wrinkles, and frown lines. It works to add firmness and definition to the skin by activating the skin's natural collagen production. The effects can last up to a year.
Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved CaHA treatment. This one-of-a-kind injectable stimulates the production of collagen, increasing the volume and definition in the treated area. It can be used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and lines in a number of different areas of the body, such as the cheeks, chin, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, jowls, neck, temple, arms, hands, knees, decolletage, hips, and butt.
The liquid facelift is a unique treatment option for those wanting to reduce the signs of aging in their face effectively but without the commitment and necessary downtime of facelift surgery. Along with providing a rejuvenated, youthful, vibrant appearance, a liquid facelift:
If you are ready to push back against the signs of aging and reveal supple, smooth, vibrant skin, a liquid facelift may be a fantastic option for you. Ideal candidates for this procedure are generally in good health and want to address mild to moderate:
Since the liquid facelift is so customizable, we will take the time during your consultation to hear all of your specific aesthetic goals and create a treatment plan tailored just for you. Our master injectors will walk you through what to expect and provide information about ways you may need to prepare.
While every liquid facelift varies slightly, there will be some similarities. First, your face will be cleansed to remove any residual moisturizer or debris. Then, if needed, a topical numbing cream will be applied, allowing time for it to take effect. Finally, injections using fine needles and cannulas will be administered throughout the face for age-defying results.
You may experience some mild redness or swelling, which will resolve within a few days. While regular activity can typically be resumed right away, many of our Atlanta liquid facelift patients opt to take it easy for a day and not engage in strenuous activity to allow for healing and for the fillers to settle. When results appear and how long they last will depend on which products are used.
The skilled cosmetic professionals at Slim Studio Face & Body pride themselves on the ability to craft a perfectly customized treatment for each one of their clients. One of the primary ways they can do this is by utilizing multiple different types of products and services in one treatment plan. Our better together philosophy means that along with fillers for your liquid facelift, we might suggest something like CoolSculpting for the chin or other methods to ensure your final result is exactly what you’re hoping for it to be.

Since a liquid facelift is minimally invasive and non-surgical, there is little to no pain involved. Most of our Atlanta liquid facelift patients describe the injections as a mild pinch, and topical numbing cream can be used to add comfort.
The side effects or risks of a liquid facelift are similar to those that might occur with a single injectable. These may include swelling, bruising, or redness and, very rarely, allergic reactions.
A liquid facelift is not permanent but can last several months to years for most patients. Follow-up treatments depend on your aesthetic goals and which injectables were used for your initial treatment.
No, as is the case with most cosmetic procedures, we do not recommend a liquid facelift be performed while you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
To ensure that your fillers stay in the proper place, it is important to sleep on your back, slightly elevated, for the first few days.
No, since there is no sedation or anesthesia involved with a liquid facelift, you will be able to drive and resume daily activities immediately following the procedure.
