With anti-aging technology advancing at breakneck speed, we’re experiencing a revolution in facial rejuvenation. These new advancements include what some people call the “liquid facelift” and it’s available in San Francisco from facial plastic surgeon Dr. David Mabrie. This comprehensive approach to enhancing the entire face with injectables isn’t really a facelift so much as it is a full-face refinement, through which Dr. Mabrie reveals the best version of your face, whether you’re 25 or 75.
Seeing is Believing
While many women use cosmetics or photo filters to simulate beautiful facial contours, Dr. Mabrie actually sculpts those contours with fillers. He approaches the face as a whole composition, not separate parts, and makes small, targeted changes that produce amazing results.
Whether you're looking to restore or preserve your youthful good looks, or are interested in improving on your existing features, Dr. Mabrie takes a comprehensive approach. He makes strategic, subtle, nonsurgical changes that together enhance your overall attractiveness.

The Aging Face
For some of us, there’s an aspect of our looks that has been a source of frustration for a long time. For all of us, the effects of aging and environmental damage inevitably change the look of our faces as time passes. Everyone occasionally stops in front of a mirror and, with their fingertips, raises, covers or smooths a facial feature, dreaming of what their look could be.
Often it’s difficult to identify exactly what’s aging us, even when it’s clear that our face looks older than we feel. That’s because it’s rarely a single feature or area that’s the culprit. It’s subtle changes that creep onto our face over time that, combined, detract from our youthful attractiveness.
Dr. Mabrie specializes in a full-face approach to nonsurgical rejuvenation through a process he calls Illumination 360°. Many people in San Francisco and elsewhere simply call it a “liquid facelift,” but Dr. Mabrie’s approach is definitely unique. The result: Your Face, Perfected.
Dr. Mabrie uses the latest FDA-approved dermal fillers in new ways to offer you the chance to refine and rejuvenate your face in a short office visit. He finds that, injected strategically, RADIESSE® and Restylane®—soft, gel-like dermal fillers—have exactly the right attributes to help him restore a youthful look to several key areas of the face. For some patients, BOTOX® Cosmetic may also be recommended.
For your own full face rejuvenation you and Dr. Mabrie may decide to:
- Brighten up your eyes by reducing dark circles, puffy bags and tear troughs that carve deep lines between your eyes and nose. Injections of RADIESSE or Restylane can make you look more youthful, more alert, and more rested than you have in years.
- Fill hollows and folds where the foundation tissues under your skin have lost volume. Volume loss is one of the biggest contributors to an aged appearance; restoring a firm support structure under surface skin can smooth wrinkles and eliminate that gaunt look. Learn more about dermal fillers and see what changes they can deliver.
- Sculpt your cheekbones non-surgically, giving you today’s coveted chiseled look. While yours may not be the next face appearing on magazine covers, you’ll likely welcome its appearance in your own mirror.

Injectable fillers can also be used on the nose, in what Dr. Mabrie calls nonsurgical rhinoplasty.
How much does nonsurgical facial rejuvenation cost?
The initial appointment with Dr. Mabrie is $300, which covers your consultation, discussion of your goals, establishment of a treatment plan, and all clinical photos. We offer treatment packages starting at $3,500 for the Illumination 360° Foundation, which is ideal for multi-area contouring and defining, and correcting the early signs of aging. This package includes complimentary BOTOX (up to 20 units). We also offer the Illumination 360° Full Face Treatment package for $6,000. This is for correcting more significant volume loss and signs of aging, and includes up to 30 units of complimentary BOTOX. For more detailed information, visit our Treatment Packages page.
How long ’til I see results from my treatment?
Based on his extensive experience and skill with injectables, Dr. Mabrie can create full-face rejuvenation in just one visit. Some patients return for subtle refinement of results within the first month. 9 to 12 months later, as the dermal filler gel is gradually absorbed by the body, you’ll see Dr. Mabrie again for maintenance treatments.
Is treatment OK for all ethnicities?
Facial rejuvenation with fillers can be a good choice for men and women of color. The injectable products Dr. Mabrie uses work well on all skin colors and types. And with no incisions to worry about, the chances of scarring decrease significantly.
