What is a Liquid Facelift?
The liquid facelift at Xage Medical Spa uses a specially formulated combination of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to restore smoothness and volume to the face, revealing a more youthful appearance. Performed by our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter, the liquid facelift works by increasing the lost volume in the face while minimizing fine lines and creating evenness by relaxing facial muscles at the same time. If you have multiple aesthetic facial skin issues, you should consider combining several of our aesthetic treatments for more comprehensive results.
To create even more drastic results, Dr. Porter can include other processes, such as thread lifts, chemical peels, medical-grade facials, dermabrasions, or laser skin resurfacing. To learn more about liquid facelifts, contact our Provo, UT practice at your earliest convenience.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Who qualifies for a liquid facelift?
Those most qualified for liquid facelifts are men and women looking to reduce the symptoms of aging and increase volume without planning for the downtime of plastic surgery. Liquid facelifts are an exciting option for Provo, UT individuals wanting to smooth scars, bumps, or irregularities on the skin while restoring youth to the facial features. A liquid facelift at Xage Medical Spa can lift sagging eyelids, add roundness back to hollow cheeks or temples, and decrease dark circles and under eye bags. This treatment is also ideal for those in search of fast results.
How does the Liquid Facelift WOrk?
Before your liquid facelift, Dr. Porter will consult with you about your desired outcome and what combination of injectables should be utilized to achieve these results. He will decide what medications to inject into your skin. Once selected, your skin will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin before Dr. Porter begins the injections. Using a fine needle, Dr. Porter will begin injecting fillers and relaxers into the desired areas.
What to Expect with Liquid Facelift
The fillers and relaxers used in our Provo, UT practice are approved by the FDA and are safe to use. The effects of fillers are typically observed immediately, while relaxers could take a full week to reveal noticeable results. If you are also wanting to undergo other aesthetic procedures, it may be in your best interest to wait a few days after injections. The longevity of your results depends on the relaxers and fillers chosen for the procedure. Some products only last up to four months, while other products can yield results much longer. Individuals should return to Xage Medical Spa periodically for touch-ups to maintain optimal results.
