If you’re ready to do “something” to look younger and more vibrant but you’re not ready for surgery, Dr. Yagoda’s non-surgical facelift might be just what you need.
While a surgical facelift is the “ultimate answer” if loose neck skin and pronounced jowls are your primary concerns, a combination of neurotoxins (Botox and Dysport) and injectable wrinkle fillers can provide beautiful rejuvenating results in under an hour. The results are immediate, last from 3-10 months, and there’s no downtime (although you shouldn’t exercise vigorously for 24 hours).
Here’s how it works:
In New York City (NYC) and Manhattan, Dr. Yagoda uses fillers to augment your cheekbones, restore lost volume, and subtly lift the skin from underneath to give a smoother, more contoured look. As a bonus, this extra volume in the upper cheek area helps fill out the lower eyelids, eliminating that hollow, tired look. Dr. Yagoda also uses fillers to smooth the “marionette” lines and nasolabial folds (the “parentheses” of the face that run from the corner of your nose to the sides of your mouth). She can even restore the crisp edge of the jaw and disguise modest jowls by adding filler to the jawline.
To raise the brow, smooth forehead wrinkles, and erase crow’s feet, Dr. Yagoda uses either Botox or Dysport on the upper portion of the face. (She’ll explain the differences between the two products and help you make an informed choice.) If friends have said you’ve been looking angry or worried when you’re feeling fine, this should solve the problem!
The non-surgical facelift is performed with either just topical anesthetic (numbing cream) or with the addition of local anesthetic. In either case, you can walk out of the NYC/ Manhattan office and go back to your normal routine immediately. You’ll already be able to see improvement and in a few days, you’ll be able to enjoy the full result of your non-surgical transformation.
