Liquid Facelift

The Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical facial treatment is designed to address the visible signs of ageing, specifically, to treat facial lines and wrinkles, address volume loss, increase skin hydration and improve skin health.


A key ingredient to maximising the aesthetic outcome of the Liquid Facelift treatment, is ensuring that your cosmetic nurse is highly trained and skilled in performing non-surgical treatments. At Bella Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on ensuring that we go far above and beyond the industry standard when it comes to non-surgical training.

Another key element of this the Liquid Facelift treatment is a detailed consultation with you to understand your aesthetic outcomes. Working closely with you, we will recommend a treatment approach that will deliver the results you are seeking.

Finally, we offer only the highest quality treatment options to optimise aesthetic outcomes, including the longevity of your treatment.

We offer effective non-surgical treatment methods that are designed to prevent and reduce the appearance of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. We use a range of products, one of our most popular treatments includes the use of natural purified proteins.


We use a range of gel-like products that are injected into the skin at different depths to provide facial volume and augment facial features.

At Bella Plastic Surgery we use the highest quality products to achieve long-lasting results. These products are comprised of complex sugar molecules which are naturally occurring within your body, and which bind with water to support your skin and increase volume.

There are a range of products, that contain different consistencies which are often broken down into three main categories: –

  • Thin products – designed to last 3-6 months
  • Mid-range products – designed to last 9-12 months
  • Semi-permanent products – designed to last 18-24 months


Lines and wrinkles are primarily formed through the repetitive contraction of facial muscles. We use products that inhibit the neurotransmitters, thereby preventing the muscles from contracting which will result in a visible improvement in lines and wrinkles. For example, these products can be used to relax the muscles around the eyes to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.


Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. The majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each possible risk with your physician to ensure that you understand the risks and can make an informed decision regarding your treatment.

Common side effects may occur immediately or maybe delayed and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Bruising
  • Bleeding/Haematoma
  • Inflammatory Reactions (swelling, Skin redness)
  • Itchiness
  • Tenderness
  • Paraesthesia/Numbness

Other adverse reactions may include:

  • Induration or nodules
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Weak filling effect
  • Infections including abscesses, granuloma, hypersensitivity

Extremely rare but serious adverse events associated with intravascular injection of products, have been reported and include temporary and permanent visual impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral haemorrhage, leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying structures.


The following are very common side effects after treatment and should resolve with time.  

  • Swelling 
  • Bruising

  • Asymmetry

To prevent and/or help minimise any bruising after your treatment:  

  • Application of a cold compress to the treatment area immediately and for at least 15minutes after. 
  • The regular intermittent application of cold packs during the first 24-48 hours may be beneficial. A cycle to consider is 10min on and 5min off. 
  • Sleep with the head elevated for the first evening. 
  • Vigorous exercise can increase blood pressure and aggravate any bruising that is developing – therefore, exercise should be avoided for the first 24 hours. 
  • You should avoid extreme heat for the first 24hrs (or until bruising has resolved). 
  • Topical creams that may help with bruising – reduction in the development and helping in the resolution.
  • Arnica cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution.
  • Vitamin k cream – apply liberally to affected area 3-4x per day until resolution.
