The RefresherLift℠ and the “Happy” Emoticon Effect
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, alleviating undesirable or tired facial expression and negative changes associated with facial aging. With this procedure, Dr. Drehsen is able to address and resolve forehead wrinkles, low brow, puffy lower eyelids, droopy neck skin and long or thin upper lip , as well as various scars, spots, wrinkles, or fine lines
The RefresherLift℠ evolved directly from Dr. Drehsen’s own research into the effect of age on facial features. Over time, upwardly oriented facial outlines (or “vectors”) change dramatically due to loss of volume, tissue weakening and gravity. Those changes very often lead to undesirable facial expressions, which often convey common–but inaccurate–emotional messages to one’s entourage. Dr. Drehsen recognized this phenomenon and coined the term “The Emoticon Effect”. Basically, people evaluate and make assumptions of feeling based on a few lines in 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 more youthful face after his RefresherLift℠ provide a measurably increased positive social response and a profound social impact. Review some of our before and after photos to see the changes for yourself.
