Skin around the eyes can become wrinkled from summers without sunscreen, exposure to pollutants, and years of squinting to train a flea circus. Turn back the ocular clock with today's Groupon: for $1,299, you get a laser eyelid lift for both upper and lower lids at Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery Center (a $2,700 value).
Under the expert guidance of physician and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alex Rabinovich, Visage MedSpa and Facial Plastic Surgery Center rejuvenates peepers with Sciton Contour laser resurfacing. Patients must first attend a 30-minute consultation appointment and staring contest to determine if they are suitable candidates for this procedure, then qualified clients return to a second appointment for the treatment. A local anesthetic numbs the flesh before the laser's rays sweep over upper and lower lids, ablating tired old cells and tightening droopy, puffy skin and wrinkles. The roughly 30-minute treatment, which is more precise than a chemical peel and less invasive than propping lids with toothpicks, also zaps sun spots. Most clients return to work or normal activities just a few days following treatment.
Visage MedSpa & Facial Plastic Surgery Center
Most cosmetic surgeons know a lot about the face. But as a dentist and plastic surgeon, Dr. Alex Rabinovich knows how the mouth plays a big role in determining ideal facial aesthetics. Rather than only focusing on lifting the skin, reshaping the nose, or combining two eyes into one, Dr. Rabinovich considers the role teeth and jaws play in the overall harmony of the face. No matter what facial-sculpting procedure he performs, Dr. Rabinovich mostly uses local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia to help prevent complications.
Before any treatment, patients can take advantage of thorough consultations at the homey treatment center with brick walls, hardwood floors, and a large flat-panel television. Dr. Rabinovich occasionally leaves the comfort of these confines to participate in medical missions abroad that provide children in need with free reconstructive surgery.
