It’s a non-surgical procedure that can take 10 years off your face in as little as 10 minutes.

Liquid Luxe – Donath Plastic Surgery’s injectable version of their surgical Luxe Lift with volume restoration – is one of the greatest advances in facial aesthetics medicine in decades, says Alexander Donath, M.D., FACS.


“It’s the best way to get the refreshing improvements of a surgical facelift without the downtime. We use injectable gel fillers to enhance certain facial features and fill the hollows and shadows that occur with aging.”

With Liquid Luxe, Donath can accentuate areas in all parts of your face, including your cheeks, folds (such as the nasolabial folds that run from each side of your nose to the corners of your mouth), and your jawline.

“Essentially, with the jawline, we’re simply straightening the line between the jowl and the chin,” Donath explains. “It’s more of an optical illusion created by straightening the jawline by making it a continuous line, not actually lifting that line. It’s a procedure that is very popular and very powerful.”

The beauty of Liquid Luxe is that patients can see an immediate difference.

“It’s extremely gratifying to see and experience that with them,” Donath says. “When facial augmentation looks natural, patients more quickly adapt to their new appearance. That’s always our goal, our emphasis – one of the reasons people come to us. They know we are not going to overdo them.”

The injectable Liquid Luxe gel is made from hyaluronic acid, Donath continues. “The word ‘acid’ might sound concerning, but it’s a naturally occurring sugar we all have in our skin. It’s a part of our dermis and it’s there to naturally provide volume. It’s safe, well-tolerated and it’s reversible – which is like a safety valve for patients.

“Because hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, there is an enzyme – hyaluronidase – that can break the gel down. So, if you think there is too much firmness or fullness, that enzyme can reduce that. The popularity of this procedure has skyrocketed due in part to its reversibility. That relieves a lot of concerns.”

Bottom line: Donath can convert a 56-year-old jawline to a 46-year-old jawline in as little as 10 minutes. Certain areas of the face do take longer, he notes.

And when it comes to durability, Donath points out, one Liquid Luxe application can last anywhere from at least a year to five or six years, depending on the areas of the face that are augmented.
