Before & After

About Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is an important component of youthful, supple, elastic skin. (1) It hydrates the skin by holding water, acting as a cushion and lubricant to reduce damage.  Hyaluronic acid is also involved with the transport of essential nutrients to the skin’s viable cells. Its ability to bind to water is what helps to provide long-lasting results and increase facial volume naturally.

Replenishing Facial Volume

As a result of aging, our cells gradually lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. This can result in sagging and hollowness. When this tissue laxity occurs without the necessary ligamental support, jowling can result. (2) Therefore, replacing the volume loss with injectables is a great way for a patient to achieve a non-surgical facelift for jowls or any part of the aging face. 

Liquid facelifts can be combined with Facial Contouring to create a very natural non surgical facelift.

Dermal fillers, composed of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials, are meticulously injected into specific areas of the face to replenish lost volume and restore youthful plumpness. They can effectively minimize the appearance of deep lines, creases, and folds, resulting in a smoother, more rejuvenated complexion. Additionally, dermal fillers can be used to enhance features like the cheeks, lips, and jawline, creating a harmonious balance and symmetry.

Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

The primary objective of a liquid facelift is to address multiple signs of aging simultaneously, delivering comprehensive facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery. It has many other benefits, including the following.

  • Minimal Downtime  – Unlike traditional facelift surgery, which often requires weeks of recovery, a liquid facelift allows patients to resume their normal activities almost immediately. This means minimal disruption to your daily routine and the ability to enjoy the benefits of the treatment right away.
  • Immediate Results  – The carefully selected dermal fillers and neurotoxins used during a liquid facelift work quickly to enhance facial contours, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improve overall skin tone and texture. You’ll leave the office with a noticeable improvement in your appearance, looking revitalized and more youthful.
  • Smoother Skin – By strategically injecting dermal fillers and neurotoxins, Dr. Kormeili can address sagging or drooping skin, providing a subtle lift and firmness to the face. This effect not only restores a more youthful appearance but also enhances facial features and contours for a naturally beautiful result.
  • Customized Treatment Options – Dr. Kormeili will carefully evaluate your unique facial anatomy, skin condition, and desired goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. This tailored approach ensures that you receive the most effective and natural-looking results, as each aspect of the procedure is specifically designed to address your individual needs.
  • Long-lasting Effects – While the exact duration may vary depending on the individual, many patients can enjoy the rejuvenating effects of the procedure for several months to over a year. Regular maintenance treatments can help prolong and optimize the results, ensuring that you continue to look and feel your best.
  • No Scarring – Unlike surgical facelifts, which involve incisions and sutures, a liquid facelift relies on skillful injections to achieve the desired outcomes. The use of fine needles means that any potential scarring or visible marks are virtually eliminated, leaving you with beautifully enhanced features and no telltale signs of treatment.

Other Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Options

Dr. Kormeili performs other procedures that complement the liquid facelift. These are outpatient, non-surgical treatments that offer the lifted, toned, and tightened effect without any surgery.

CoolSculpting of the Neck

CoolSculpting of the sagging neck is an innovative and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that offers patients a solution to reduce unwanted fat and achieve a sculpted neck contour. This revolutionary treatment specifically targets stubborn pockets of fat, such as the double chin or submental fat, without the need for surgery or downtime.

Botox for the Neck & Masseter Muscles

While commonly associated with facial injections, Botox can also be used to target specific neck muscles and achieve remarkable results. By injecting small amounts of Botox into the neck muscles, muscle relaxation can be achieved, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can also be used to target the masseter muscles, which are responsible for jaw movement. When these muscles are overactive, they can cause a square or overly prominent jawline. By strategically injecting Botox into the masseter muscles, their activity can be reduced, resulting in a softer and more balanced facial appearance.


Thermage is an innovative non-invasive treatment that utilizes radiofrequency technology to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. What sets Thermage apart is its ability to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the surface. This results in minimal discomfort and downtime, making it an ideal choice for busy individuals who want to achieve noticeable improvements in their appearance with little disruption to their daily lives.


Ultherapy, also known as a non-surgical facelift, is a non-invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Unlike surgical facelifts, there are no incisions, no anesthesia, and no downtime required. The treatment works by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the targeted areas of the face and neck, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. This natural process gradually lifts and tightens the skin over time, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

What causes jowls to form?

As we age there is a net loss of elastin and collagen (proteins in facial tissue). There is also a loss of bone and soft tissue structures that once kept the face pulled These losses together cause the sagging that is jowling. There are both surgical and nonsurgical treatments available to correct jowls.

What is the best treatment for jowls?

If you are not interested in surgery, there are nonsurgical options that help pull the skin, tighten the tissue, and reduce the “fattiness of the jowls.” Combinations of fillers, Coolsculpting of the neck and jaw, and Ultherapy have produced pretty amazing results for our patients.

What is a nonsurgical facelift?

A non-surgical facelift, or facial rejuvenation is personalized to each patient. If you have loose skin, excess fat, or loss of volume, each problem has to be individually addressed by the various nonsurgical modalities. We often combine Ultherapy, fillers, and Coolsculpting to create natural lifted results.

How is aging skin treated?

There are a variety of changes in the aging skin. This includes wrinkles (both at rest and as the result of movement), loss of volume, change in color and texture as well as laxity. To get great results, each component of the aging skin must be addressed with its own solution based on your anatomy. Generally, Botox and Fraxel laser therapy help with wrinkles, while Ultherapy and Coolsculpting help with tightening and slimming. Fillers produce volume and lifting, while Vbeam and IPL or Fraxel lasers help with color and texture restoration!

Does laser skin tightening really work?

Yes. To get great skin tightening you have to choose the right modalities of treatment. To tighten the skin of the cheeks you can use a laser like Fraxel. If you are looking to tighten in an area against gravity like the lower face, you can use a device like Ultherapy as well.

What is the best non-surgical treatment for wrinkles?

The Liquid Facelift or NonSurgical facelift involves using fillers along the bony structures such as the lateral cheeks, temples, and jawline as well as the chin to sculpt and lift the face. The results can be very natural, not to mention instant.
