The Liquid Facelift
Aging is a beautiful process. But if the passing of time is not kind to you, Kliniek Dokter Frodo has developed a solution: the Liquid Facelift.
What is the Liquid Facelift?
The Liquid Facelift is also called the whole face treatment. It is a combination of fillers (such as Restylane or Juvéderm) and specialised treatment techniques that make it possible to restore weaknesses in the face. In contract to a surgical facelift, where part of the skin is cut away, the Liquid Facelift uses the recovery of volume to achieve a lifting effect. A facelift without cuts, and therefore, without surgery.
The small, mutually reinforcing procedures lead to a natural result in which your face regains its volume and youthfulness. We only restore the volume that has been lost in the normal aging process. Therefore, you do not have to worry about getting a bloated face, also called a pillow face.
During the aging process, you mainly lose volume near the temples, the cheekbones and cheeks, and under the eyes. By restoring the volume precisely in those areas, your natural appearance is preserved.
At our clinic in Amsterdam, the Liquid Facelift is carried out by Doctor Frodo. He is one of the pioneers of this revolutionary treatment in the Netherlands.
‘The Liquid Facelift is a facelift that does not require you to have surgery. At Kliniek Dokter Frodo, this treatment is fully customised. The Liquid Facelift is based on three pillars which, depending on your wishes and facial features, each receive their own accentuation.’

Experiences Liquid Facelift
‘I look a lot better since the treatment. It’s funny that nobody in my environment can tell that I have undergone treatment. But I do get positive comments; nice!’
‘I ended up with Dr. Frodo via a friend. After removing the puffiness under my eyes, I later underwent the Liquid Facelift’ – Sylvia
‘I wanted to look a bit fresher, and it bothered me that people kept telling me I looked tired’ – Ena
‘Yes, I am a man, and yes, I have undergone treatment at Kliniek Dokter Frodo. Why should only women be allowed to look young and fresh again? I feel fit as a fiddle again!’
‘I am still young, and this is my time. So I want to look that way. I’ll just postpone those wrinkles for a few more years. Kliniek Dokter Frodo helped me with this in a very comfortable way.’
‘I thought a minor treatment would rid me of my nasolabial fold. I was wrong. I was unlucky in the sense that I needed much more volume. However, the results are very beautiful’ – Geraldine
After the treatment
Immediately after the treatment, the skin can be massaged and/or cooled with a coldpack. This makes for a comfortable finish and helps limit the potential swelling that may occur after the Liquid Facelift treatment.
The most common side effects after the Liquid Facelift are swelling and redness, which fades in 2 to 7 days in most cases. Sometimes, there may also be a bruise. This can be visible for one to two weeks. In this case, avoid direct sunlight on the skin to prevent pigmentation.
To guarantee a natural result, we usually choose to perform the treatment in several steps. During the check-up, which takes place 4 to 6 weeks after your Liquid Facelift, we look at the result and, if necessary, we continue the treatment.
Hyaluronic acid is slowly broken down after 1.5 to 2 years. However, there are large individual differences, and for most people, it stays in much longer. We recommend not waiting until the result is completely gone, but returning in time for a touch-up to prevent a yo-yo effect.
Prior to the Liquid Facelift, there is always an extensive consultation in which the doctor makes a detailed analysis of your facial and aging features. If needed, we make a 3D picture with which the doctor can analyse the desired result in combination with your facial features and show this to you prior to the Liquid Facelift.
We (almost) fully restore volume loss and skin sagging with the Liquid Facelift. To ensure a beautiful and natural result, we cannot guarantee that we can fully remedy severe skin sagging with just filler. Often, this is not necessary. At Kliniek Dokter Frodo, we do not believe in smooth, emotionless faces.
We achieve very good results with the Liquid Facelift, but unfortunately, this cosmetic procedure is not for everyone:
Sometimes, we choose not to treat someone because we cannot meet their high expectations. We are not afraid of high expectations; after all, we are confident in our specialist approach and years of experience. However, sometimes, we have to be realistic based on this experience, and refuse treatment if we cannot convince you.
If you suffer from overhanging eyelids (end continuously raise your eyebrows in response to this), we may recommend that you first undergo a blepharoplasty.
Too much loose skin under the eyes
Are you suffering from bags under the eyes and (too) much loose skin? If you have too much loose skin under the eyes, we recommend you first go to a plastic surgeon before we can help you further. Feel free to come by for a consultation, and if necessary, we will refer you to a plastic surgeon.
Do you have severe skin sagging, but still want a wrinkle-free result? Then we recommend first tightening the skin with a MACS-lift, S-lift, or a combined Neck-Facelift, before restoring the volume with fillers.
A consultation at Kliniek Dokter Frodo is free of charge and without obligation.
