The Liquid Facelift and the YAG
Nd yag not FDA approved for lift
Thank you for you question.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any further treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
Certainly if you undergo a liquid facelift I would wait at least 3-4 weeks for the swelling associated with the injectables to subside.
At that point you could consider a laser skin treatment for further tightening focusing on the problematic areas that are more apparent once the filler has settled.
I would seek care with a facial plastic surgeon in your area who can evaluate you and discuss your options.

This is a great procedure for the younger patient without soft tissue sagging due to redundancy rather than loss of volume. In that case a mini or other facelift would also be required for best results.

Liquid facelift and laser
The best combination of anti-aging non-surgical is the "liquid" face lift followed by lasers. This allows both the skin to be rejuvenated and the supporting tissue lifted and enhanced. Please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in facial rejuvenation for the best cosmetic results.
Laser and Filler for Liquid Facelift
The Nd:YAG laser in non-ablative so it shouldn't affect the filler too much but if you are worried, we recommend the laser portion first followed by the injectable fillers. The 1064 wavelength of the Nd:YAG laser can penetrate deeply into the skin.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
Injectable Treatment Followed by YAG Laser Treatment
There is a slight chance the laser treatment could break down the filler you had injected. I normally encourage my patients to do laser treatments before filler, so that there is no chance of the laser interfering with their filler. I would recommend consulting with your physician or provider to ensure you don't undo the results of the filler injections.
Best of luck!
