A WORD FROM DR. DREHSEN ABOUT FACIAL AGING, THE EMOTICON EFFECT, AND THE REFRESHER LIFT.
Do you ever wonder why people often ask you: Are you tired, sad, angry, or not well?
You are certainly not alone!
Many of my Refresher Lift patients endured such well-meaning, but ultimately hurtful inquiries from close friends, and even perfect strangers for a long time. Until they decided to do something about it.
Intrigued by the similarities of my patients’ complaints, I began to study the effects of age on our facial features. The facial outlines (or “vectors”) can change dramatically through loss of volume and gravity, projecting undesirable expressions.
A few simple facial lines (“expression lines”) by their specific alignments convey common emotional messages. Most people understand these communications in the same way we interpret the meaning of an “Emoticon” in our text messages. When I made this realization, I decided to increase my emphasis on correcting unwelcome expressions, and to incorporate these corrections into my facial rejuvenation technique.
This simple idea is now published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. 80 medical students reviewed a random sample of my Refresher Lift results, showing an amazingly positive social response to the improved expressions and youthful faces!
I named this amazing response: “The Emoticon Effect”
I personally invite you to review our gallery of results and patient testimonials. I firmly believe that you will reach the same conclusions!
“Since I’ve been to Dr. Drehsen, I feel my life has changed tremendously. I feel a great deal better about myself. I feel young. I feel refreshed.”

Restoring Facial Fitness Has A Profound Social Impact.
- FACIAL FITNESS CONCEPT – Facial fitness is the reflection of pleasant and dynamic facial expressions. This simple holistic goal has inspired Dr. Drehsen’s development and refinement of his Refresher Lift procedure, which uniquely restores your facial freshness, allowing you to enjoy a regained pleasant and youthful expression.
- WHOLE-FACE APPROACH – More than focusing simply on correcting changes in skin firmness, one clearly needs to address the losses of volume and increasingly negative outline of the face in the rejuvenation plan. Incorporating these intertwined concepts, Dr. Drehsen’s Refresher Lift is the only procedure designed to improve your entire facial expression. Beware of miraculous “quick lifts” that simply tuck skin and distort more than they rejuvenate. Welcome and embrace our natural, long-lasting rejuvenation.
- THE EMOTICON EFFECT – Dr. Drehsen’s study published July 2015 in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery clearly proves the amazing social response to our patients’ results after our Refresher Lift. This clearly POSITIVE social reaction to our patients’ results has led us to coing the term “Emoticon Effect.”
