Women and men considering nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, balancing, and a refreshed appearance in the Toronto area choose expert injector Dr. Vince Bertucci, whose full face rejuvenation approach emphasizes facial harmony and balance to produce refreshed, natural-looking results. Often including a “liquid facelift,” the full face rejuvenation approach involves customized treatment plans that help you age gracefully.

The treatment plans developed by Dr. Bertucci or Dr. Yuliya Velykoredko, who are both board-certified dermatologists, may combine cosmetic injectables with laser skin treatments, medical-grade skincare products, and other skin rejuvenation devices that minimize wrinkles, sculpt well-defined contours, and create an overall refreshed appearance without anesthesia, incisions, or downtime for men and women from Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Mississauga, and other communities.

Our 360-Degree Facial Assessment

The key to Dr. Bertucci’s full face rejuvenation approach is the comprehensive assessment of your facial features and understanding your aesthetic goals. His expertise in conducting this holistic assessment is reflected in his published peer-reviewed research and his role as director of instructional courses on 360-degree injection techniques for organizations such as the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and American Academy of Dermatology.

During the consultation, Dr. Bertucci or Dr. Velykoredko will first ask about the concerns you have with your appearance and the results you’d like to see. Then, they will carefully examine your facial anatomy, both at rest and while you’re talking and changing expressions—the functional anatomy of your face. They’ll then provide a list of recommended treatments, prioritizing those that will have the most impact.

Based on their extensive knowledge of anatomy, facial harmony, and the natural aging process, they’ll create a treatment plan tailored to achieving your priorities.

The Benefits of Full Facial Rejuvenation

Taking a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation produces natural, refreshed results. Think about what happens if someone remodels their kitchen but doesn’t upgrade the adjoining rooms. There’s a lack of harmony, and the other rooms may look even worse. Full facial rejuvenation includes anti-aging and facial contouring treatments that are safe and effective for people with all skin types and tones.

Our full face rejuvenation treatments address a range of concerns, such as wrinkling, rough skin texture, skin discoloration, and other signs of aging. The results will:

  • Help you look more alert, rested, and content 
  • Tighten and smooth your skin 
  • Create a lifted, refreshed appearance 
  • Enhance your facial contours 

“In our social media culture, patients often say they want lips, eyes, or cheeks that look like a certain celebrity or influencer. We believe it’s essential to consider each individual’s unique anatomy and facial proportions and have an honest conversation about the treatment choices best suited to them.”

–Dr. Bertucci

What Is a Liquid Face Lift?

A liquid facelift is a nonsurgical approach to full face rejuvenation that combines cosmetic injectables as part of a customized treatment plan. It’s an excellent, nonsurgical alternative to a facelift if you’re seeing early signs of aging and want to enhance the contours of specific facial features. Depending on your needs, Dr. Bertucci will use BOTOX or another neuromodulator, such as Dysport® and XEOMIN®, along with dermal fillers.

What to Expect From Your Full Face Rejuvenation Procedure

What is it like to get a liquid facelift? It all happens in 3 steps.

1. Consultation

What Is the Consultation Process Like?

Before your injectable procedure, you will have an extensive consultation with Dr. Bertucci and his highly trained staff. This is a good time to talk about your previous treatments, main concerns, goals, budget, and any upcoming events you have planned. Dr. Bertucci makes sure to combine only treatments that fit into your lifestyle.

You will also review consent forms and have “before” photos taken. You, Dr. Bertucci, and his assistant will formulate a treatment plan together, and decide which products will be incorporated into your procedure.

2. Treatment

What Is It Like to Have the Treatment Done?

During the procedure, which usually lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour, Dr. Bertucci carefully injects each product into the targeted area, using his skill, artistry, and experience to achieve natural-looking results.

He uses ultrafine needles and cannulas to ensure your comfort. Additionally, most fillers are formulated with local anesthetic to numb the injection site.

3. Recovery

How Long Is Liquid Facelift Recovery?

After your treatment, you can return to work, school, and your usual routine right away. Your filler results will be instantly visible, while your neuromodulator results will take one to two weeks to develop. While swelling is usually minimal to none, some swelling may be visible for a few days to a week or so in areas treated with filler, such as the lips. Bruising and redness, usually minor, may sometimes be seen around your injection sites, but this typically subsides quickly.

Dr. Bertucci's staff will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, as well as skincare product recommendations for home use to optimize your results.

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX and Fillers?

Facial wrinkles develop for different reasons. BOTOX and other neuromodulators target “dynamic” wrinkles caused by squinting, frowning, laughing, and making other expressions. Dermal fillers treat fine lines and wrinkles that form due to the natural aging process and sun damage.

BOTOX COSMETIC® & Other Neuromodulators

Dr. Bertucci may inject a wrinkle-smoothing injectable such as BOTOX, Dysport, XEOMIN, or Nuceiva™ at specific sites around the eyes and brow to minimize dynamic wrinkles. The most commonly treated wrinkles are:

  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as the “11s”
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines

Additionally, we use neuromodulators in more advanced ways over the mid and lower face to address other concerns, such as lower facial shape and jawline contour.

BOTOX and other neuromodulators reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles used to change expressions. Dr. Bertucci’s conservative approach to injectables ensures you simply look more refreshed and relaxed rather than “fake” or “frozen.”

Dermal Fillers

Dr. Bertucci selects from a versatile array of dermal fillers that can create natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing contours and subtly add volume to areas of the face, such as the cheeks or lips. Fillers address contouring concerns caused by volume loss, a natural part of the aging process, and can also be used to improve certain wrinkles. The result is a refreshed, lifted, and youthful look.

Dr. Bertucci uses many different families of fillers, such as:

  • JUVÉDERM®
  • Restylane®
  • TEOSYAL®
  • Revanesse®
  • BELOTERO®

Each filler formulation is unique, and Dr. Bertucci utilizes his extensive knowledge and expertise to customize your results completely.

The 4 D’s of Aging

Most liquid facelift candidates experience the "4 D's":

  • Deflation: Loss of fullness or volume
  • Descent: Droopiness or sagging skin
  • Deterioration: Fine lines, wrinkles, and texture change
  • Dynamic Lines: Wrinkles created during facial expressions

We customize each procedure to achieve your unique aesthetic goals, choosing products that address your specific needs.

A Few More Liquid Facelift FAQs

Q: Is full face rejuvenation safe? Are there risks or side effects?

A: Dr. Bertucci uses only Health Canada-approved products with track records of safety and success. The injectables are generally safe and low risk. The most common side effects include swelling and bruising around the injection sites.

Q: Can I include a nonsurgical rhinoplasty as part of my liquid facelift?

A: While it is not included by default, you can certainly have a nonsurgical rhinoplasty performed along with your treatment. Including this injectable treatment will refine and rejuvenate your nose without adding any extra time to your recovery. Many people are surprised to see that subtly lifting or straightening their noses makes them look that extra bit younger.

A: The cost of a full face rejuvenation or liquid facelift at our Toronto-area practice varies depending on the type and amount of products injected. Because each procedure is so highly personalized, the best way to determine your specific pricing is to discuss your treatment plan at a one-on-one private consultation with Dr. Bertucci.
