During the weeks and months before the Holiday Season the demand for cosmetic surgery procedures increases.   Our patients want to look their best for the parties and family gatherings that come with this time of the year.  What they don't have however is time to recover.  So simple low downtime procedures are what people are looking for.  

I often get asked, "what is the best way to refresh my look without surgery?"  The answer is obviously dependent on the individual case, but most can benefit from the following  four procedures.  The specific combination of course depends on the individual.  

Liquid Eye Lift .   This simple in-office procedure utilizes a filler just as Juvederm or Restylane to fill in the hollows under the eyes.  In terms of bang for the buck, this is perhaps one of the most rejuvenating procedures available.  When done well, by an experienced physician, the results leave the eyes looking remarkably rested and rejuvenated.  

The Liquid Face Lift.  This is another procedure that uses fillers, but in this case, it is used in specific parts of the face.   For example, it can include the nasolabial folds, the lips, the corners of the mouth, and even around the eyes. This approach treats the face not just the fold or a wrinkle.  Therefore the results can be very dramatic in a naturally enhancing way.  

Botox can be used in combination with these procedures to help relax the wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.  Even when done alone, it can leave the face looking softer and more rested.  

Finally, a light chemical peel  either in combination with the above or alone freshens the texture and color leaving the skin looking radiant.  

Even from my point of view, I am often amazed at what a big impact these relatively minor procedures can make.  Another advantages is that they have essentially no downtime.  The only thing to keep in mind is, the Liquid Eyelift and Liquid Facelift are considered advanced cosmetic procedures and should only be preformed by experienced physicians.
