Liquid Facelift – Non Surgical Dermal Filler
The non-surgical liquid facelift is a custom tailored treatment, unique to each patients specific needs. A variety of noninvasive techniques are used to address anything from fine lines, deep creases, lax skin, thinning lips, sunken cheeks, large pores, acne scarring, and loss of facial volume. A nonsurgical facelift includes:
Dermal Fillers are the foundation of nonsurgical facelifts. These injectable gels immediately restore volume to the lips, cheeks, jaw, chin, and fill lines of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal Filler creates definition, smoothes tissue, reduces wrinkles, and rejuvenates the skin. Repeat treatment is necessary, as filler lasts approximately 6-12 months.
An important piece of any nonsurgical facelift are neuromodulators like Botox and Xeomin. These injectable treatments smoothe forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet, slim the jaw through masseter injections, reduce chin dimpling, and help treat downturned mouth (DAO injections), and gummy smile. While Botox treatments are not immediate, the effects kick in after about 2 weeks, and last up to 3 months.
Skin Treatments (Microneedling, Chemical Peels, Aquagold):
Refining and treating the skin forms a key foundation to any nonsurgical face lift and facial transformation. Treatments like peels, microneedling, and other facial based treatments can help treat large pores, reduce acne, treat scarring and hyperpigmentation, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin. Combining multiple treatments will lead to optimal results as not every treatment can fix every problem.
It All Starts With a Consultation:
Patients wanting to rejuvenate the skin and face should start with a consultation where your concerns and goals can be reviewed, as well as what treatments may help you achieve those goals. At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Rayhaan Dawood will customize your treatments and plan to your specific needs.
What is a Non Surgical "Liquid" Facelift
Nonsurgical Facelifts are a way to create lift, volumize, contour and restore youth, and rejuvenate and face. In the past, plastic surgery was the only option for most patients. Non surgical treatments like Dermal Filler, Botox, Microneedling, Peels, and more, can create rejuvenating results, without the inherent risks of surgery. At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic are focus is on non surgical approaches. The nonsurgical facelift is a combination of minimally invasive and nonsurgical procedures, designed to rejuvenate and refresh the appearance. Compared to surgical techniques, these do not require large incisions, general anesthesia, or hospitilization. Noninvasive treatments are done same day, and are “in and out” procedures, where the patient can have procedures done in under an hour, with minimal downtime. You won’t go “under the knife”, but will still leave with significant results.

COST of Nonsurgical Liquid Facelift?
Cost varies depending on patient goals. Number of treatments and types of treatments needed will vary significantly from patient to patient.
We are a results-focused cosmetic clinic and medical spa. It is impossible to quote you a price before seeing you for consultation, and we always recommend patients are realistic with their goals.
Every patient is unique. Some notice changes at a younger age, and some may not have the desired look they want regardless of age. We always recommend a consultation so we can tailor a custom and unique treatment plan that is right for you and your goals.
How are Treatments Performed?
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rayhaan Dawood MD CCFP. Dr. Dawood. He has trained along with and under some of the industry’s top physicians and injectable experts from across the world. At your consultation Dr. Dawood will assess your overall health and medical history, define your goals, and formulate a treatment plan.
At the time of treatment a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort. Dermal Filler or Botox will then be injected using a very fine needle, or skin based peels and microneedling devices will be applied. Overall time in office is ~60 minutes, with actual treatment time taking <30 minutes.
Most Common Non Surgical Facelift Treatments
As our bodies age, we start to lose facial fat, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. We begin form fine lines and wrinkles. Our skin collects the signs of aging like hyperpigmentation and scarring. Our tissue begins to sag, leading to a more skeletal appearance.
One of the most notable areas of this loss is around the eyes, then the middle-upper cheek just below the eyes. The cheekbones are also the next place to lose its structure with age. We also start to lose facial fat and contour in the chin, jawline, and nasolabial folds, and midface.
These dynamic and static lines can be treated primarily with Botox, Microneedling, and Dermal Filler via Aquagold Microchanneling/Microneedling Facial. These treatments can help to relax active muscle movement, and treat both dynamic and static lines. This leads to a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Under Eyes / Tear Trough Filler:
Our under eyes begin to look sunken and dark with age, giving us a tired and older look. Fillers can be great to help camouflage these issues and blend the under eye region into the rest of the face.
If you have hollowing under your eyes, then you may need tear trough and under eye filler. This treatment is not for everyone though, as you need to be the perfect candidate. By adding filler under the eyes we can treat this loss of volume and restore a more youthful look. In some select patient’s this may even help with darkening and hyperpigmentation under the eyes.
Jawline and Chin Filler:
As we age our Midface, Cheeks, Jawline, and Chin begin to lose structure, contour, and shape. In youth, facial fat is evenly spread giving the face a youthful look. But with age these tissues diminish, leading to a sunken, less supple, gaunt, skeletal appearance.
Dermal filler can help with lax dropping jawline tissue, add volume to cheeks and chins, and help treat jowls and sunken areas.
The Jawline and Chin is the latest request in nonsurgical cosmetics, and here at the Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic we are at the cutting edge of medical aesthetics. Contouring these areas creates a sharper profile, a slimmer facial appearance, and more definition. Patients with a strong jaw muscle may also benefit from combination treatment with Botox to slim the jaw muscles.
As we age, we begin to lose structure to and in our cheeks. Using cheek filler stops sagging, wrinkling, and hallowing of the face. Over time we begin to lose and breakdown our collagen, elastin, and facial fat pads, this ages the face, and becomes noticeable in the cheeks and midface. Our cheeks are one of the biggest parts of our face and are one of the first things people notice when they look at us. Injecting dermal filler can restore and reverse the aging process of the face, giving you a fuller, more chiseled and youthful profile. The Hyaluronic Acid integrates into the facial collagen matrix to create a more plump, and healthier-looking cheek structure. This has the effect of “slimming” the rest of the face and creating a more youthful look.
Scars Including Acne Scarring:
Severe acne scarring can also be treated if you are the right candidate. Small depressions in the skin can be filled with very small drops of dermal filler to smooth out the texture caused by scarring. Microneedling and Peels are often employed to help treat scarring as well
As we smile, we start to form creases from the mouth that extend up to the nose. These are known as the nasolabial folds, and in some these deep creases can be prominent.
Filler can plump up the fold, reducing its appearance and softening the lines.
Lip Filler Injections:
One of the most commonly done injections are for lips. Lip filler injections can plump up thin and flat lips.
Lip injections can restore volume, fill up vertical lines above the lips, and create beautiful lip contour and shape.
Doing a lip fill may look easy, but it requires finesse and expertise. To create a beautifully shaped lip Dr. Rayhaan Dawood uses several techniques, including needle, cannula, micro-droplet, and more.
As we age the collagen in the lip begins to break down. This creates volume loss and wrinkling in the lip tissue. The Hyaluronic Acid in dermal filler will integrate into your existing lip tissue and create a fuller, plumper, more youthful lip.
Juvederm Volite, Aquagold Microchanneling and Anti-Aging Filler (Skinboosters):
Juvederm Volite is a special purpose dermal filler. While still a hyaluronic acid filler, this product is placed very superficially into the skin of the face to create a radiant, youthful glow. The goal is not to plump the skin, but to condition and refine it. This will help treat very fine smooth lines and rough texture to the surface skin. By boosting the production of collagen, the skin will become smoother and softer. And with more moisture comes more skin radiance. Often we will combine this with our Aquagold Microchanneling/Microneedling Facial treatment to deliver Botox and Filler via 24 karat gold needle tips directly into the skin, for the ultimate glow.
What if I Don’t Like the Results?
Dermal filler treatments can always be reversed, however most patients absolutely love their results. Some patients come to us from other clinics where they have had poor results. It could be too much filler was added, or the results are too lumpy. Or they just don’t like the overall look.
If treatment was done with hyaluronic acid dermal filler then hyaluronidase can be used to reverse it by dissolving the filler. Hyaluronidase is a naturally occurring enzyme that specifically targets dermal filler hyaluronic acid, and not the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid of your body.
Ideally you should not dissolve filler until it has been at lease 2 weeks post injection, unless it is an emergency dissolving that is needed. We do not perform emergency dissolving for treatments done at other clinics. For emergency dissolving contact the clinic you had treatment had for next steps.
If non-emergency dissolving for treatment done elsewhere is something you think you may need, please book an initial consultation with Dr. Dawood, hyaluronidase treatments start at $250+ and several sessions are often required.
If for some reason you are unhappy with a treatment we performed for you, we can happily dissolve the filler with hyaluronidase.
Botox treatments are temporary and results will fade after 3 months.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule that is found in the connective tissues of the face, body, skin, joints, and tendons. Hyaluronic acid absorbs and binds water molecules that helps contribute to facial volume and contour, as well as skin health.
Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid can be used to help achieve a youthful appearance by replacing the hyaluronic acid that has naturally been lost with aging. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, it is safe to inject as long as it is done so in the capable hands of an expert Cosmetic Physician. It is rare to have an allergy to it, although most patients will have some slight bruising, redness, and swelling post-treatment, which will fade in a few days.
Juvederm, Belotero, or other injectable filler contains Hyaluronic Acid as its main ingredient. Your body naturally produces Hyaluronic Acid, but by injecting more we can rejuvenate problem areas of the face and body! After injecting, your body will combine water with the Hyaluronic Acid to create areas of natural volume, replacing lost tissue and creatine new shape and contour where it is needed. The plumping effect after filler injection is what fills those wrinkles, creases, and hollows. It also lets us modify the contours of the face and shape and define areas like the lips, cheeks, chin, and jaw.
Hyaluronic Acid also boosts glow, radiance, and moisture levels of the skin. More hydration means your skin will be more youthful, vibrant, and healthy. And repetitive treatments with Dermal Filler bestow an anti-aging effect on the skin and body.
BOTOX® vs. Dermal Fillers
Botox and Dermal Fillers are commonly used together to address different aspects of aging and to realize patient goals. Dermal fillers are used for lost facial volume, and to enhance facial features and restore contour lost due to aging or weight loss.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a muscle relaxant injection that will smooth dynamic lines caused by muscle movement. Botox works by relaxing the muscles activity, allowing it to rest, and not cause deep wrinkles into the face and skin.
Both Botox and Fillers can be used in the same treatment/session depending on specific concerns. Dr. Dawood will be able to review your concerns and formulate an individualized treatment plan.
Filler Brands Available At KW Cosmetic Clinic
There are many dermal filler brands available on the market today. They are more or less the same substance, with slight variations in formulation. At the end of the day, it isn’t the type of filler used, or the brand that matters, but the absolute expertise and ability of the injector. Think of filler as the paint, and the injector as the artist.
Dr. Dawood has experience with all of the leading filler brands on the market. Currently, at KW Cosmetic we primarily use the Juvederm Line from Allergan and the Belotero Line from Merz.
