Facial Rejuvenation Procedures That Are Right for You

In today’s demanding landscape of social media and video calls, you may be more acutely aware than ever before of how your face looks from every angle. At some point, strategic lighting and filters can only go so far to hide the signs of aging, and it’s time to start considering various facial rejuvenation options to remove years from your appearance. Today, we’ll review some of our patients’ favorite surgical and non-surgical procedures.


A facelift is the gold standard of facial rejuvenation treatments, and it can remove years from your appearance. While performing a facelift surgery, Dr. Desman can address skin laxity, erase wrinkles, and lift muscles to a more youthful position. Depending on the degree of aging you’re experiencing, you may be a good candidate for either a full facelift or a mini facelift. Dr. Desman can recommend which surgery is better for you after meeting you and learning more about your goals and expectations.

Eyelid Lift

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty surgery, is a brief procedure that can brighten your eyes and make you look younger and healthier. Dr. Desman can lift your upper lids, lower lids, or both, removing excess skin and fat in the process. This straightforward surgery can resolve puffy undereye bags and drooping upper eyelid skin, with nearly imperceptible scarring and a brief recovery time.

Non-Surgical Double Chin Removal

You have your mother’s eyes, your father’s nose – and your grandmother’s double chin. Many people inherit submental fat from their families, and this stubborn fat pocket is challenging to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. Now, there’s Kybella, the world’s first prescription medication for dissolving a double chin. In a few brief, in-office treatments, Kybella will permanently eliminate fat cells in this area, and your body will flush them out of your system over time. As a result, you’ll look younger and enjoy a smoother, better-defined chin and jawline profile, all without surgery.

Liquid Facelift

The fabled Fountain of Youth may have turned out to be a folk tale, but advancements in aesthetic medicine have given us a modern-day alternative. If you have a less advanced degree of aging or are unwilling or unable to commit to surgery, a liquid facelift may be your ideal solution. This nickname refers to a combination of neurotoxins and dermal fillers to revitalize and refresh your appearance from forehead to chin, with no incisions, stitches, or downtime.

You can get a liquid facelift on your lunch break and resume your typical daily activities immediately afterward, which makes this facial rejuvenation procedure ideal for anyone with a hectic schedule. Combining dermal fillers like Juvéderm with neuromodulators such as Botox can simultaneously improve the appearance of dynamic and static wrinkles, with natural-looking results.
