Looking For A More Life Changing Look?
Dr. Drehsen’s Life Changing Facelift: The RefresherLift℠
Whether you’re looking to return to a more youthful version of yourself, or exasperated of well-meaning friends asking whether you’re tired or unwell, Dr. Drehsen’s RefresherLift℠ is the answer you’re looking for.
Unlike many traditional facelifts, the RefresherLift℠ is a customized facial rejuvenation technique that includes specific strategies to address the individual’s needs, desires and facial structure. With this procedure, Dr. Drehsen is able to address and resolve forehead wrinkles, puffy lower eyelids, excess neck skin and upper lip wrinkles, as well as various scars, spots or fine lines.
The RefresherLift℠ evolved directly from Dr. Drehsen’s own research into the effect of age on facial features. Over time, facial outlines (or “vectors”) change dramatically due to loss of volume and gravity. Those changes lead to undesirable facial expressions, which often convey common –but inaccurate –emotional messages. Dr. Drehsen recognized this phenomenon and coined the term “The Emoticon Effect”. Basically, people evaluate and make assumptions of feeling based on facial appearance, just like reading an emoticon or emoji.
Dr. Drehsen’s initial research, study and results were published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and medical students have participated in studies confirming his work.
The data doesn’t lie. The improved expressions of a youthful face provide measurably increased positive social responseand a profound social impact. Review some of our before and after photos to see the changes for yourself.
