Liquid Facelift: Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Non-Surgical Precision

In the quest for a youthful, rejuvenated appearance, many individuals are turning to innovative non-surgical solutions. Among these, the liquid facelift has emerged as a popular choice, offering remarkable benefits without the need for invasive procedures or extensive downtime.


So, what exactly is a Liquid Facelift? Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, which involve incisions and tissue manipulation, a liquid facelift utilizes injectable dermal fillers and neuromodulators to sculpt and enhance facial contours. These injectables, such as Restylane and Botox, are strategically placed to address specific areas of concern, including fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging skin.


One of the most significant advantages of a liquid facelift is its versatility. Unlike surgical procedures that offer limited customization, a liquid facelift allows for precise sculpting and tailoring to each individual’s unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. Whether targeting nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or hollowed cheeks, injectable fillers such as Voluma and Restylane Defyne, can restore lost volume and create natural-looking results.


Moreover, the procedure is performed in-office with minimal discomfort and downtime. Unlike traditional facelift surgery, which requires weeks of recovery, the non-surgical approach allows patients to resume their daily activities almost immediately, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. While some minor swelling or bruising may occur at the injection sites, these side effects typically subside within a few days, leaving behind a refreshed and revitalized appearance.


The liquid facelift offers a transformative solution for individuals looking to rejuvenate their appearance without the downtime and risks associated with surgery. By harnessing the power of injectable fillers and neuromodulators, this non-surgical procedure can turn back the clock and restore youthful radiance with precision and natural-looking results. If you’re considering a liquid facelift, call us today to discuss your options and embark on the journey to a more youthful, refreshed look.


See you soon.


Unlock a Youthful Transformation with the Liquid Facelift

As the years go by, the desire to retain a youthful appearance remains a universal aspiration. While surgical facelifts were once the primary solution, the world of cosmetic enhancements has evolved to offer a non-invasive alternative—the liquid facelift. This procedure, also known as a nonsurgical facelift, has gained immense popularity for its ability to rejuvenate the face without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.


A liquid facelift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the strategic use of injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers and Botox, to address signs of aging in the face. Unlike a traditional surgical facelift, which involves incisions and tissue repositioning, a liquid facelift utilizes advanced techniques to restore volume, improve facial contours, and reduce wrinkles—all without the need for surgery.


The liquid facelift offers a revolutionary approach to facial rejuvenation, allowing you to turn back the clock and embrace a more youthful version of yourself without surgery. By harnessing the power of injectables, this non-invasive procedure provides natural-looking results, minimal downtime, and the opportunity to enhance your beauty with precision. If you’re considering a liquid facelift, call us today to schedule your complimentary consultation.

It’s All About Balance

covey-blogOur approach to our work–and your face–is holistic. We don’t think of you as a sum of disparate parts, but as one person, one body, one face. So, we treat you with a keen eye directed at balance.


When we restore volume to your cheeks, we look at the position of your eyes. When we reduce fat in your abdomen, we take your hips into account. Nothing is done in isolation. Balance defines our work.


Take, for instance, the shape of the chin and jaw, which also changes with age and should not be missed when treating other areas of the face. Like other features, the chin and jaw lose volume over time and benefit from injectable fillers, instantly. Augmenting the chin and jawline can easily be done while redefining the cheeks with Voluma, Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm or Perlane. In one visit, your lower face will look youthful and plump and shadows that can linger around the corners of the mouth will also be diminished. The effects are subtle, but transforming.


Call us for a complimentary consultation to talk about how we can infuse your look with new balance and beauty, without surgery and without anyone really knowing.


See you soon.

The Liquid Facelift: A Fast and Simple Time Machine

We love our collagen and elastin. But as we age, these structural proteins start to dwindle, and as they do, our faces lose their volume and bounce. Worse, wrinkles, lines and folds form, too, since the support behind the skin is no longer there to keep it stretched and firm.


blogYou are probably not feeling so happy reading this. But, as you’ve come to know, we can help. Using advanced dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Perlane, we can lift and contour facial features, restoring your natural fullness exactly where you need us to. Nonsurgical and virtually pain-free, this “liquid facelift” can reduce wrinkles, lines and folds, create a more rested and fresh look, and return your face to its curved former self.


Sometimes, we “lift” the entire face; sometimes, we target specific spots, such as bags under the eyes, marionette lines, sagging eye lids, jowls and flattened cheeks. We can even disguise bumps on the nose, a method that will keep you out of the operating room and free of anesthesia, recuperation and downtime.


The fillers that we use are made from substances that your body produces naturally. For more information about this quick treatment and its immediate results, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.


Meantime, use that sunscreen…and remember to reapply often.

What Makes Someone Beautiful, Anyway?

The notion of attractiveness seems simple. When we see a person, we know immediately whether we think he or she is beautiful. We don’t really have to decide; our reaction is involuntary, and it is personal. You might think that a particular person is stunning, while your best friend might not.


Interestingly, studies over the years have shown that most people tend to agree, for the most part, on what constitutes a beautiful face, and that the reason they do relies more on brain science than on preference. Consider the ability of babies to recognize faces and prefer the ones that society deems pretty.


So, how we assess appearance might be more complex than simply liking large eyes better than small ones or full lips rather than thin ones. The brain has the capacity to recognize not only attractiveness, but also emotions, personality traits and fertility. The part of the brain that allows us to do this, the fusiform, is also responsible for our ability to recognize familiar faces. When it is damaged, we can’t recall whom we’ve just met, and we can’t distinguish between plain faces and beautiful ones. When we decide that someone is beautiful, we are really thinking that the person is healthy and vital, studies have shown. Smooth skin and symmetrical facial features, for instance, indicate to our brain that a person has good genetics and is not ill, both of which lead us to think that the person is attractive.


However our perception is formed, appearance–of others and ourselves–has a powerful effect on so many of our emotions.


When injectable fillers first made their debut they were used exclusively to fill in facial folds.  Today fillers are used for much more.  They replace volume and reposition the skin to add volume, actually lift folds, smooth out lines and wrinkles and take years off an aging face…instantly and with longer lasting results from advanced formulas.

TODAY’S INJECTABLES DO PREVENT LINES and WRINKLES and they LIFT SAGGING SKIN!  shutterstock_62411647They are truly amazing and they do achieve either instant or gradual and subtle results.

PRIMER on INJECTABLES:   It’s important to understand how aging affects certain areas of your face and what options are best suited to correct the aging such as:

  • CROW’S FEET are fine lines that start at the outer corner of the eyes and extend out.  These are caused by muscle activity.  We correct them using BOTOX or DYSPORT (neurotoxins).
  • DROOPY BROWS are caused by excessive brow movement and can cause loss of the natural eyebrow arch resulting in a heavy appearance.  BOTOX or DYSPORT can lift the eyebrows to their natural, youthful position.
  • TEAR TROUGHS and HOLLOWS start below the bridge of the nose and lower eyelid, extending downward toward the cheek.  RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM or BELOTERO safely treats these areas.
  • CHEEKS, TEMPLES and JAWLINES … As fat diminishes with aging, these areas commonly sag and appear shallow.  I use NEW VOLUMA XC, RADIESSE, PERLANE, RESTYLANE or JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS to restore natural youthfulness.
  • NASOLABIAL FOLDS are lines extending downward from the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the lips and are caused by fat that has shifted due to normal aging.  RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM, PERLANE, RADIESSE or BELOTERO corrects these unwelcome folds!
  • LIPS...Over time your lips can become thin, flat and lose their youthful shape and fullness.  Great lip plumpers include: JUVEDERM, RESTYLANE, PERLANE or BELOTERO.

FILLERS and INJECTABLES  are one of our most requested anti aging, age defying treatments today…for men and women, because they offer quick results with minimal downtime.  However, there is some misleading information out there about what they can and cannot do.  This false information causes much confusion, and I plan to address this in my next few blogs.  Look for that next time.

My Best to You and Yours,

For the Body of your Dreams…. Get “Body Sculpted”

My last couple blogs focused on Body Reshaping and an overview of a few of the amazing tools I employ to achieve my patients’ goals.  Body Sculpting, Refining, Reshaping and Body Contouring (interchangeable terms) is so popular among Baby Boomers, GenX and the Millennials today…thus the reason for my stayed focus on it.  Body Reshaping is safe and effective…is used for various body areas…and it is here to stay.

BodyChanging the size, profile or parameters of the anatomy and refining those areas is what Body Sculpting is all about. There are various methods used for achieving the “perfect body” or “body of your dreams.”




  • To tighten loose skin after dramatic weight loss
  • Restore a PrePregnancy Body after Childbirth
  • Tighten up loose, saggy skin and remove excess fat pockets
  • Eliminate unwelcome Cellulite and “dimples” it causes
  • Be able to wear stylish clothing of your choice
  • Sculpt a healthy, trim, firm and contoured body
  • Achieve the “refined” body they’ve always wanted
  • Restore self confidence and boost self esteem
  • Look as fabulous and healthy as you feel!

WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO HAVE BODY SCULPTING DONE?  This is the most frequent questions I get from patients.  MY ANSWER:

This answer will vary with each patient since no two people are the same.  But, you should be in good general health, and at a stable weight…for at least three months before starting on your personalized treatment program.  Continuing a healthy, active lifestyle and weight management is critical to enjoying your long term results.

THE GOAL OF ALL BODY SCULPTING/CONTOURING is to achieve balance and harmony for the entire body.  Thus, treating the body “as a whole” and never as isolated parts.

Since, patients often choose multiple body areas for refining, a combination of treatments may be required to accomplish the desired goals.


SMARTLIPO TRIPLEXTM  for Body Sculpting. .  It involves removing unwanted fat from body areas that have resisted even the strictest diet and most rigorous workouts. SmartLipo accomplishes more than liposuction with less invasiveness and amazing precision!

Other treatments are often used in combo with liposuction/lipolysis for the neck, jawline, inner arms, men’s breasts, abs and love handles, women’s bra fat (overhang) inner/outer thighs, inner knees, chin, hips, buttocks, pubic mound, back of neck, such as skin tightening using Exilis, Mesotherapy or Cellulaze etc. See my website for more info on these amazing options:

EXILIS offers the newest advances in non surgical skin tightening to reduce unwanted inches and to lift and contour sagging skin anywhere on your body!  CELLULAZE LASER treatments attack cellulite where it originates…under the skin. One treatment can result in smoother skin on your abs, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms and anywhere cellulite occurs.

Every generation today is concerned with anti aging!  So, treatments are geared to turning back the clock…today’s Filler FaceLifts take years off an aging face by restoring youthfulness.  New Voluma, Botox, Juvederm, Belotero, Dysport, Perlane, Radiesse and Restylane injectables eliminate and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Laser treatments remove age/sun spots, acne and more, and are part of safe, effective treatments patients choose daily to slow down the signs of aging.

Call soon for your consultation and let’s get started on your Body Refining and age defying program!

Introducing New Belotero Balance

Did she or didn’t she? Keep them guessing with the NEW dermal filler that offers quick lasting volume naturally!

Alexander CBelotero Balanceovey, M.D. and East End Laser Care are excited to introduce Belotero Balance®, the new secret weapon in the fight against aging. Belotero is the newest dermal filler recently approved by the FDA. It is an excellent filler for fine lines and wrinkles such as upper lip lines and crow’s feet. Used extensively in Europe, Belotero has a proven track record of providing instant volume and smooth facial contours for a younger and more radiant appearance.

Belotero Balance dermal filler is made with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your body that is an important element in helping to support your skin’s structure. As we age, the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers (including HA) diminish leaving behind fine lines and wrinkles. With Belotero, we can instantly replace the volume you’ve lost giving you back the smoother, wrinkle-free skin you’ve been missing.

One of the advantages of Belotero is its unique formulation which allows it to integrate seamlessly with your skin to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face. Belotero can plump up your lips and smooth out laugh lines, upper lip lines, crow’s feet and marionette lines discreetly, without anyone knowing. All they’ll see is a naturally younger looking and beautiful you.

Quick Treatments for a Healthy Holiday Glow

It’s December again . . .our radios are playing holiday music, our offices are decorated with sparkling tinsel and jingle bells, our Toys For Tots box is filling up (thank you once again for helping us with this very worthy cause) and our patients are rushing in for their pre-holiday touch-ups.

Today was no exception. At least 7 people asked me this morning which treatment can give them the best result in the shortest amount of time. Since so many are asking I thought I’d share my thoughts here.

While almost all of our treatments fit this description, the most popular treatments this time of year are usually Botox/Dysport, Dermal Fillers, Microdermabrasions, chemical peels and facials. Each of these treatments immediately combats the signs of aging leaving you with naturally younger and healthy looking skin.

Botox and Dysport are simple and safe non-surgical injectable treatments that smooth the dynamic wrinkles and erase that “angry” look some have due to forehead wrinkles and creases.  Using very tiny micro-needles, Botox or Dysport is injected right into the muscle causing the wrinkle action. Within 3-10 days your skin smooths out and the wrinkles are diminished – just in time for all those holiday get-togethers.

Dermal fillers, including Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Radiesse, work a little differently. They actually replace volume lost under the skin and are perfect for plumping up your lips, filling in smile lines and giving you back the youthful contours of your face.

Microdermabrasions, chemical peels and other facials are quick refreshing non-surgical treatments that rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. Designed specifically for your skin type, these treatments exfoliate your skin, promote new cell growth, clean your pores, stimulate collagen networking and improve your skin’s texture giving you a healthy glow. And they’re relaxing too – something many of our patients look forward to this time of year!

Yes, you CAN look ten years younger instantly!

Do you stand in front of the mirror tugging and pushing at your face trying to pull it back into place? Are sagging jowls, hollow cheeks and furrows between your eyes and around your mouth making you look tired and old? Well, you’re not alone!

As we age we lose important areas of facial fat (collagen) and fibers (elastin) that support the contours of your face. First you notice crow’s feet and smile lines. Then your brow line begins to fall, your jaw line sags and your cheeks, lips and nose areas lose their fullness and your eyes begin to look hollow. You actually deflate and descend as you age!

Joan R. Age 54 Liquid Face Lift (Alexander J. Covey, M.D.)

A Liquid Face Lift instantly replaces the volume and fullness that you lost as you aged. A Liquid Face Lift, also known as RestyLift, VolumaLift and the Instant Injectable Face Lift, is a non-surgical treatment that gently lifts and contours your face helping you look 10 years younger instantly! Using a combination of safe and effective injectables including wrinkle relaxers such as Botox or Dysport and fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and/or Radiesse, I strategically restore the natural curves and contours of your face. One of the greatest benefits to this treatment is that we are not stretching and pulling your skin into place. Instead, a Liquid Face Lift fills in the hollows of your cheeks and under eyes, plumps up your lips,and lifts your sagging jaw line giving you a natural, well-rested, energized and youthful appearance without resorting to surgery.
