A Facelift Without the Knife?SERVING BEVERLY HILLS AND LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Yes, it’s true. Dr. Andre Berger has three amazing tools in the battle against facial aging that can give you the results of a surgical facelift without surgery or general anesthesia! These knife-less facelifts are performed right here in our Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery office.
Sagging in the lower face, such as in the jawline, chin, and neck, are a reflection of normal aging patterns among many of Dr. Andre Berger’s Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery patients. The Precision TX laser is specifically designed to treat a double chin, turkey neck, and sagging jowls.
After a local anesthetic is given to ensure a comfortable experience, tiny incisions (so small that they require no sutures) are made to allow a small cannula to be inserted under the skin. Laser energy is then delivered to the treatment area, which will tighten both the skin and the tissues beneath it and to induce your own collagen production.
After their Precision TX Laser procedure, our Beverly Hills facelift patients take two days from social and work activities while wearing a facial compression bandage. The bandage reduces swelling and promotes healing.
A Precision TX laser treatment will give you immediate results, although, as new collagen is produced, you will see additional results over a three to six month period.
Ultherapy, an FDA-approved ultrasonic treatment, lifts the skin on the chin, neck, and brow areas. Ultherapy is a collagen stimulator, which increases your own collagen production from the inside out, for smoother, younger-looking skin. Ultherapy is performed without surgery, anesthesia, or discomfort through a small hand-held device placed directly upon the area to be treated. Ultrasonic waves are then delivered beneath the skin’s surface. The depth of treatment needed for maximum results will be discussed in advance between you and Dr. Berger at your facelift consultation in our Beverly Hills office. There is no penetration of the skin and little to no downtime after your Ultherapy treatment. You will see immediate results, although maximum correction will occur within the next two to three months, with continued improvement up to six months following your Ultherapy treatment.
Even though October is the month of Halloween, we promise you won’t look “ghoulish” after your Vampire Therapy, an amazing technology that rejuvenates your face by using your own platelets to accelerate tissue regeneration and stimulate collagen production for younger-looking skin.
What is a Vampire Therapy?
A very small syringe of your blood is extracted and processed. From this, Dr. Berger creates a platelet-rich injectable gel called platelet rich plasma or PRP. Similar to treatment with dermal fillers, the PRP is injected into your face. The PRP will stimulate your natural collagen, which has depleted with age and is one of the causes of wrinkles and facial lines. Although results aren’t visible immediately, you will see a very natural and subtle change over time, with improvement up to two years following treatment.
Recovery after Vampire Therapy is fairly short, with little or no bruising or swelling. It can be performed on any body area, including the back of the hands. Both men and women in our Beverly Hills area have found that Vampire Therapy gives them a more youthful appearance.
