Do You Need an MFI Lift (Liquid Facelift)? 

When you feel energetic and youthful on the inside, but the face you see in the mirror looks tired and aged, it can be frustrating, and it can take a toll on your confidence. For individuals with generalized signs of aging in the upper, mid, and lower face, our MFI Lift is an excellent solution. It combines elements of our upper face, midface, and lower face rejuvenation procedures, along with optional enhancers, into one—a package sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift.”  

At Mabrie Facial Institute in San Francisco, our exceptional injectors perform this procedure to improve forehead wrinkles, brow position, under-eye shadows, bags, nasolabial folds, jowling, and poor chin projection. While this customized procedure brightens and refreshes the face, it also addresses contouring of the cheeks and anterior jawline.   

WHAT YOU SEE

  • Under-eye bags and circles 
  • Sagging skin around the corners of the mouth, chin, and jawline 
  • Deep facial lines, folds, and wrinkles

WHAT WE SEE

Fat loss and bone resorption causing the underlying structure of the face to collapse, creating shadows, hollows, and loss of definition. On top of this, thinning skin sags and creases, contributing to an overall aged appearance. 

6 Problem Areas of the Aging Face

The MFI Lift Zones

  • Problem 1: Dark Circles
  • Problem 2: Nasolabial Folds
  • Problem 3: Sagging Cheeks
  • Problem 4: Jowls
  • Problem 5: Marionette Lines
  • Problem 6: Underprojected Chin

MFI Lift (Liquid Facelift) 

The MFI Lift is the most transformative procedure we offer, providing significant correction of volume loss and enhancement of facial contours using fillers and neuromodulators. This full-face rejuvenation includes aspects of each of our other rejuvenation packages:  

This commonly involves restoration of areas including the forehead, tear troughs, midface, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and chin, as well as definition and contouring to improve the youthfulness of the face.

Enhancers

Your MFI Lift procedure will include upper, mid, and lower face rejuvenation customized to help you look refreshed and more youthful. However, individuals may benefit from enhancers to rejuvenate or contour additional areas of the face. Our enhancer options cover everything from your forehead and temples to your chin and jaw, and everything in between.  

Your MFI Lift Procedure  

For the MFI Lift, we use a variety of injectable products and we meticulously administer them over the course of 2 or more appointments. This staged approach allows us to create structure, support, and truly remarkable yet natural-looking results.  

Initial Appointment  

Treatment begins by restoring volume to the larger anatomical areas to address primary volume loss and/or bone resorption, particularly in the mid and lower face. This creates the “foundation” on which we continue to layer and refine. We also use neuromodulators in the upper face to smooth and refresh this area.  

While we can do a lot in one appointment, we have learned over the years that too much, too soon, is not good, and a “layered” approach works best. 

Refinement Appointment  

The second appointment is scheduled 1 to 3 months after your initial treatment. All swelling will have subsided, and we can see any remaining shadows. The support is in place for any additional volume needed to truly bring out the best version of your face. Some patients will still require a third appointment for optimal results.

MFI Lift FAQs   

How do I know if I need an MFI Lift or a facelift? 

A patient with skin that retains most of its elasticity, but who is concerned about lost volume in the upper and lower areas of the face, can get exciting results from an MFI Lift. The specialists at Mabrie Facial Institute can restore youthful contours and minimize shadows and wrinkles to create a refreshed, healthier, more luminous appearance. To help you determine whether you need a facelift or a nonsurgical MFI Lift, read our blog post, “Facelift vs. Liquid Facelift.”


How much does an MFI Lift cost?    

MFI Lift procedures are customized to each individual’s unique pattern of aging and facial anatomy. Pricing varies depending on the quantity and type of products used, the number of treatment areas, and whether or not you will benefit from treatment enhancers. We provide a detailed price quote and treatment plan at your consultation. We also partner with CareCredit and Alphaeon medical financing, which offer 0% financing for 6 to 12 months for qualified borrowers.


Which fillers do you use for an MFI Lift?  

Typically, for under-eye rejuvenation, we use Restylane® for the tear trough and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® for the cheeks and midface. For the lower face, we use JUVÉDERM Ultra®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA, and Restylane. These are hyaluronic acid fillers, which means they are reversible and there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. Learn all about the fillers we use by visiting Dermal Fillers 101.  

For upper face BOTOX and some lower face concerns, we use neuromodulators including BOTOX, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

I really like the staff here however Dr. Mabrie has one of those egoic attitudes. He is good at his job and he knows it. However, he doesn't seem interested in his patients. I have been there several times and I just kind of deal with it. I just wish he acted like he cared about his clients.

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!
