Nonsurgical Facial Enhancements
© Dr. Audrey Stanley
Dr. Stanley has created a non-invasive, alternative to facelift surgery, which is safe, relatively pain-free, and requires only a short recovery time.
Dr. Stanley’s technique involves a combination injectable fillers, to reduce lines and folds, and restore youthful contours. Unlike a surgical facelift, eyelift, or brow lift, this method does not require general anesthesia and relies instead on powerful numbing topical applications, allowing you to see the results at intervals during the procedure and give feedback. You control the outcome.
Typically, Dr. Stanley uses Juvederm to fill in under the eyes (to eliminate dark circles) and better define the lips (this decreases the vertical “smoker’s lines” of the upper and lower lip). She uses Radiesse to fill in the nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines at the sides of the mouth, subtly enhance the cheekbones, giving a noticeable lift to the skin of the face and fill in the space between the “jowl” and the chin, re-establishing a smooth jawline and camouflaging the jowl.
The procedure is virtually painless and usually takes about an hour. Recovery time is normally a few days. The results last months to years depending on what products are used.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Stanley will evaluate your unique needs, desired end results, and explain the procedure. She will also help you determine which type of filler will work best with your body and skin type. You will have the opportunity to view before and after photos, so that you will know exactly what to expect from the treatment.
NON-SURGICAL JOWL LIFT:
Sagging jowls are traditionally treated with a surgical jowl lift. This is an expensive, invasive procedure, which involves significant pain, swelling, and a long recovery period. The results typically last up to ten years. Dr. Stanley has created a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative which is safe, pain-free, and requires no recovery time.
Dr. Stanley’s technique involves injection of a filler called RadiesseTM into the space just in front of the jowl. The original, youthful contour of the jaw is restored and the jowly area becomes much less noticeable. Unlike a surgical facelift, this method does not require general anesthesia and relies instead on powerful numbing topical creams, allowing you to see the results at intervals during the procedure and give feedback. You control the results. The procedure is virtually painless and usually takes half an hour. Most people can go back to work immediately.
