The Non-surgical Facelift is a safe and effective way to achieve a fresh, more youthful appearance with less downtime and expense than undergoing surgery. The Non-surgical Facelift uses a combination of small procedures including dermal fillers, BOTOX® and lasers to improve sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. There is no cutting involved. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse™, Restylane® and Juvéderm™ are used to restore volume and fill facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® is used to smooth lines of facial expression including frown lines, forehead lines and crow's feet around the eyes. Laser or IPL is used for removal of age spots and skin tightening. The Non-surgical Facelift is a safe and effective in-office procedure that takes approximately one hour. It does not require general anesthesia and there is no extended recovery time. Dr. Maragh will tailor your treatment to your individual needs.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
Restylane-L® & Perlane-L®
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane-L® and Perlane-L®. It is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane-L may also be used for lip enhancement. Restylane®-L is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. What makes Perlane different than Restylane is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection, which means it's a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. It is also a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body so there is little risk of allergic reaction. With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane-L and Perlane-L remain in your skin for many months giving long lasting rejuvenating results. Restylane-L and Perlane-L are combined with lidocaine (numbing agent) which has made the treatment experience much more comfortable for our patients.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body's natural collagen supply.

Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only local anesthetic. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last for 12 to 18 months in most patients.*

As we age, the rate at which our skin sheds and replenishes itself slows down. This leaves a layer of dead cells on the surface of the skin, contributing to an aged appearance. Facials help exfoliate the damaged layer to reveal the younger, healthier skin beneath. Some of the ingredients used can be natural fruits and plant extracts, essential oils, vitamins, collagen and elastin. Facials reduce the signs of aging and can also improve skin conditions such as acne, dry or oily skin, and uneven texture or pigmentation. Facials are tailored to each patient for optimal results.
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.
