The Liquid Facelift: Instant Happiness

Not many people are happy about lines, wrinkles, sagging skin or a tired appearance. Among the top nonsurgical anti-aging treatments, the Liquid Facelift can offer instant results for these concerns, plumping up your droopy spots and restoring a youthful contour to your face.

 

With injectable fillers, we can take years off of your appearance. Targeting your temples, brows, upper eyelids, under-eye areas, cheeks, mouth corners and jowls, we can help to erase the signs of aging, naturally and easily. With expert precision and careful attention to your facial anatomy, we’ll help you look as young and refreshed as possible. Your recovery time will be minimal, too.

 

Here is how we do it:

 

Now is a terrific time for a Liquid Facelift. Call our office this week for a consultation, and we’ll devise a special plan just for you.

 

See you soon.

The Liquid Facelift: Tiny Time Commitment, Big-Time Results

With school doors about to shut for the summer, you may be feeling the squeeze on your typical routine. Many parents experience an extra juggle when kids are home, trying to balance so many responsibilities while adapting to the summer schedule. But there’s no reason that your personal beauty regimen has to hit the back burner in the process.

 

This time of year is particularly opportune for our quick treatments that provide instant results. One that hits the mark is The Liquid Facelift.

 

We all 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.

 

We can lift and contour your facial features and restore your natural fullness in the places where you need it. Using advanced dermal fillers such as VolumaRestylane Lyft and Radiesse, we provide a pain-free nonsurgical “liquid facelift” that can reduce wrinkles, lines and folds, create a more rested and fresh look, and return your face to its curved former self. And we can do it quickly and safely. The fillers that we use are made from substances that your body produces naturally.

 

You may want to “lift” the entire face, or you may want to 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.

 

For more information about this quick treatment and its immediate results, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation.

 

See you soon.

September, Seriously

Fall is the time for getting back to work and hitting the books. With vacation time behind us, we tend to become more serious in general about our day to day lives and responsibilities. An important part of every day is how we feel, with happiness being the overwhelming goal for many people. When we are happy, we typically do better–at work, at home, at school, and everywhere else.

 

How we feel about ourselves determines, in no small part, how happy we are. The more assured in our abilities, the more secure in our emotions, the more enthusiastic about the experiences we have, the happier we seem to be. How content we are with our appearance also plays a role in our overall well-being. It is an old adage–”Look good, feel good”–but I think that it is true.

 

We can help bring it to life for you, and now is a good time to start, or to begin again. Fall is self-improvement time, the perfect season for getting serious about making subtle changes that will enhance your natural good looks and your confidence.

 

Here is what we recommend for this month:

 

Lift Your Spirits, and Your Skin: Using advanced dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Restylane Lyft, 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.

 

No More Turtlenecks: Particularly effective for this area, microneedling is a treatment for boosting your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which are two of the most important substances for keeping your skin plump and youthful. Tiny needles, ones that are much smaller than the needles we use with dermal fillers, penetrate the top layer of your skin, triggering your body to create the new collagen and elastin. Results may include improved texture and firmness, and I’ve seen terrific success in the reduction of acne scarring, pore size and stretch marks.

 

Say Eye: Touted as the first nonsurgical facelift, Thermage CPT will actually transform skin all over your body. The Thermage CPT thermal lift will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. Thermage CPT, one of the most effective lift treatments for a multitude of concerns, yields dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.

 

In the eye area, for instance, Thermage CPT reduces “hooding,” improves texture, and tones and softens fine lines and crow’s feet. The treatment is a safe, effective and unique option for “eyelid rejuvenation.” The Body Shape procedure is ideal for men and women who are looking to help firm sagging skin and reduce unwanted bulges that dieting and exercise alone cannot seem to change.

 

Shape a Better You: SmartLipo TriPlex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting areas of the body that you’d like to change. A laser treatment that virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, the TriPlex technology is updated from the original SmartLipo system in that it uses three wavelengths of laser light and yields better fat removal, tighter skin and high-definition body sculpting capabilities.

 

Call our office for a complimentary consultation, and we’ll help devise a treatment plan just for you.

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.

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.

To learn more about Belotero or other cosmetic treatments, call Alexander J. Covey, MD and East End Laser Care at (631) 878-9200 or visit www.drcovey.com.

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.
