Skin that receives special attention and care is more likely to reward its owner with a glimmering appearance and by not getting a secret butterfly tattoo. Lead skin along the right path with today's Groupon: for $99, you get 20 units of Botox or Dysport at Clinique of Plastic Surgery (a $200 value), with locations in downtown St. Petersburg and Sarasota.
Guided by the experienced Dr. Christian Drehsen, who has practiced in the Tampa Bay area for more than two decades, Clinique of Plastic Surgery furnishes façades with FDA-approved Botox or Dysport injections. A nurse practitioner imparts a wrinkle-foiling potion through several injections into the offending areas, weakening the muscles that cause between-brow folds and prehensile eyebrows. Each treatment takes about 10 minutes, with no need for downtime afterward, and facilitates natural-looking results that manifest within days and can last as long as four months.
THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT.
Clinique of Plastic Surgery
In a profile for Plastic Surgery Practice's 2011 Top Docs feature, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christian Drehsen described how a person's entire facial expression, rather than just sagging cheeks or crow's-feet, is the object of his practice at Venus Clinique Spa by Clinique of Plastic Surgery. This comprehensive approach reflects his mastery of artistic composition, as well as his extensive experience, which is capped by more than two decades of sculpting the denizens of the Tampa Bay area, including mermaids built in sand. After thorough immersion in all fields of plastic surgery at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, he sought out specialized studies in hand surgery and microsurgery and developed a deft touch with children and burn victims during his residency at Morton Children's Hospital in Louisville. His steady hand is constantly innovating ways to harmonize features. He reimagined the face-lift to replicate the firm cheeks and stifling ennui of someone in their mid-twenties and repurposed clients' fat cells as catalysts for their own rejuvenation. Computer imaging helps his patients to see and evaluate what he envisions and then collaborate in the creative process. His practice has grown to three locations, two of which offer non-surgical aging solutions. There, medical aestheticians lavish complexions in carefully engineered Obagi and SkinMedica products while a nurse practitioner injects wrinkles and sagging cheeks with seven kinds of FDA approved dermal fillers and volumizers. Lasers work overtime at the spa, smoothing cellulite, routing unwanted hair and veins, and promoting even skin all over the body.
