As we age, production of the body’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid is reduced, leading to a loss of facial volume. This change in facial contour is one of the main signs of aging. To address this, as well as other significant signs of aging, our physicians offer the Soft Lift™ – a customized treatment that utilizes the combined benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®.

What is Soft Lift™?
Using strategically placed injections, our physicians can personalize treatment, addressing each patient’s individual concerns. Rather than treating with only one type of cosmetic injectable, our doctors use both BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, restore volume, and enhance facial contour – all within a single treatment session! Because JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler (improves volume), while BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin (relaxes muscles to smooth wrinkles and fine lines), this non-surgical procedure can effectively address multiple signs of aging at once. With the Soft Lift™, you can reveal a more youthful, balanced, and refreshed look that is natural-looking and uniquely you.
How Long Does it Last?
The Soft Lift™ combines the effects of both BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM® for non-surgical facial rejuvenation with long-lasting effects. Most patients are able to enjoy the results of the Soft Lift™ for four to six months – however, the effects of JUVÉDERM® can sometimes last up to a year! To maintain results, we recommend returning for occasional “touch-up” appointments as needed.
Which Signs of Aging Can Be Addressed?
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Loss of volume in the lips, midface, cheeks, chin, and temples
What Can I Expect After the Soft Lift™?
Although some of the effects of the Soft Lift™ will be evident immediately after treatment, results should improve in the following days. There may be some minimal bruising or redness after the procedure, but these can be camouflaged with makeup, and should fade soon after treatment. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after their treatment session.
Does it Hurt?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is specially formulated with lidocaine to help make treatment as comfortable as possible. To minimize any other potential discomfort during treatment, we can also use a topical anesthetic in treatment areas prior to the injections.
