The wryly named Fifteen-Minute ‘Facelift’ refers to one quick visit to the dermatologist for two highly effective anti-aging procedures: Botox and Facial Fillers. The cosmetic treatments combined are so successful at smoothing skin and restoring youthful volume that the result, in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost, is a subtle, mini-lift. And aesthetically, The Fifteen-Minute Facelift® has a much more natural-looking outcome than is possible with plastic surgery. The Fifteen-Minute Facelift® also boasts a low-to-no risk factor, and requires no recovery time, other than that associated with the possibility of temporary bruising. For more information about both components of The Fifteen-Minute Facelift, please see Botox and Facial Fillers. Combining the two procedures in one visit to the dermatologist is entirely safe and is a smart, carefree, cost-effective way to keep the face looking consistently fresh and youthful. The Fifteen-Minute Facelift® result is not permanent and eventually touch-ups will be required to maintain it.
NYDG FLASH FACTS
- The Fifteen Minute Facelift combines both Botox and Facial Filling in one outpatient office visit.
- Both Botox and Facial Fillers are injections. Multiple sites may be treated, as determined by the dermatologist.
- To minimize bruising, patients should avoid aspirin and ibuprofen prior to the procedure. Arnica Montana and Papaya may help healing.
Pain management for injections during The Fifteen Minute Facelift® can include numbing or nerve blocking. For some patients, ice will suffice.
