Liquid Facelift: Facial Tightening without Surgery
Combination Treatments using Hyaluronic Acid.
Liquid facelift is a method for a holistic wrinkle treatment and face augmentation by use of hyaluronan fillers, completely without surgery. Face augmentation describes the process of restoring volume which was lost due to aging. This natural method allows you to look younger and more refreshed. The results are instantly visible.
The liquid facelift and the MD Codes™ were developed in 2010 by renowned Brazilian doctor Dr. Mauricio de Maio. He developed the idea of a holistic facial treatment, instead of addressing ever wrinkle individually. This will result in a more natural and harmonious outcome.
In our practice for aesthetic medicine in Zurich, you will be looked after and consulted personally by our dermatologist Dr. Bettina Kerbler, beginning with the first meeting onward until completion of your liquid facelift treatment. She was personally taught by Dr. de Maio and completed all master level courses, which qualified her to become an instructor for other doctors herself.

Most important Information
Optimal Results without Surgery
During the liquid facelift, a filler is in injected under the skin to function as an anchor at a specific point. Here it will attach to the skin, similar to super glue. During this, the injected hyaluronan will bind water and hydrate the skin from the inside. Because of the holistic approach, your facial features will turn softer and more youthful. This will counteract the aging process of loss of bone volume and fat padding under the skin which begins at age 25. All this will be done without anesthetics or scalpels.
Natural and with High Quality
The method in accordance of MD Codes™ is a holistic treatment which restores volume to your face. It does not address and fill only single wrinkles since this will mostly cause a noticeable and artificial appearance. Furthermore, only tested hyaluronan fillers produced by the well-known company Allergan are used in our practice, for which Dr. Kerbler herself is a spokeswoman.
Gentle and almost painless
The hyaluronan filler contains a local anesthetic. Because of this the procedure is mainly painless. You will merely feel a tiny prick caused by the needle or a slight pressure sensation.
During the first consultation we will go through your medical history and examine the areas affected by volume loss. We will inquire about your wishes and visions: Would you for example like to look less tired or less sad or do you wish to have specific facial regions appear less saggy? Or do you wish to appear more attractive or constructed? A thorough analysis of your face will help us to determine the areas of volume loss or other possible weaknesses. After the initial examination, we will create a treatment plan and define how much filler will be injected in which areas to produce the result you wish for.
Dr. Kerbler will model the filler under your skin during the injection process, in order to restore the loss of volume which will smooth your skin. Depending on the extent of the treatment, this measure will take 15 to 70 Minutes.
The results caused by liquid facelift are visible instantly. To demonstrate this, we will first treat only one side of your face. This will give you the opportunity to convince yourself of the treatment while it is being conducted.
You will be able to forth with your day-to-day routine and planned social interactions directly following the treatment. After the procedure, you should merely do without air travel or sauna visits during the first 24h.
