If you are wishing you could hit the holiday party circuit feeling fresh faced, a non-surgical liquid facelift might be just what the doctor ordered. Patients can restore vitality and effectively contour the face with little to no downtime. Injectables such as Botox, Juvederm, Voluma and Kybella can lift your face and your spirits.

With the new FDA-approved Kybella you can eliminate your double chin and get a permanent runway-like contour! With a series of small injections in the desired treatment area, Kybella effectively removes the fat under a patient's chin without the need for surgery. Therefore, scarring is not a concern and side effects such as swelling, mild bruising or numbness are very minor and short lived. And if wrinkles or deep lines are causing you to feel self-conscious, Botox and Restylane can enable you to look as young as you feel.

Among the many methods of improving the contour and appearance of the face, lip augmentations are becoming more popular. Some patients want a very subtle enhancement and others want a more dramatic change. People with naturally-thin lips or individuals who have begun to develop wrinkles and folds in the mouth area are experiencing age-defying results thanks to treatments such as Juvederm. Whatever combination of injectables is right for you can be determined by an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon.

The Best Choices for Pre-party Pick Me Ups
Restylane is one of our favorite hyaluronic fillers, especially when used underneath the eyes to improve the appearance of dark circles. This filler is also commonly selected for the finer lines in the lips, leaving them looking naturally plump, hydrated and youthful.

The Dry Ice Facial
The Dry Ice Facial is one of the coolest facials ever offered - and with good reason. With no down time, this treatment will leave you with a face so soft you won't want to stop touching it! The Dry Ice Facial safely "freezes" away the outer layers of dead skin, instantly brightening and tightening your face. Designed to resurface the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles, the Dry Ice Facial boasts remarkable results without the harsh traditional treatments that usually require down time.

Fractional CO2 Resurfacing Laser Treatment
The Fractional CO2 Resurfacing laser treatment can take years off of your look without requiring a "nip and tuck!" This laser corrects the appearance of pigmentation and fine lines while improving texture and skin laxity. Because this treatment can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin, you'll experience dramatic results for a refreshed look you'll love to show off.
