Fresh-Faced for Fall: Ageless Autumn with Liquid Facelift

Goodbye summer, goodbye wrinkles! Do you want to look fresh-faced for fall? Of course you do – and now you can, with a liquid facelift from board-certified Manhattan cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist, Dr. Lisa Donofrio.

A liquid facelift can dramatically reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss but with no surgery, little to no downtime and almost immediate results! Our NYC liquid facelift, or “liquid lift”, patients can look years younger but with no incisions, stiches or lengthy recovery.

Dr. Donofrio utilizes a variety of injectables (such as BOTOX®) and dermal fillers (such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and VOLUMA) for dramatic anti-aging results. She also customizes a liquid lift in New York City to each patient’s unique complexion, so results are extremely natural looking. Following a NYC liquid facelift, patients look rested, rejuvenated and revived – far from “frozen” or “pulled.”

Here is what one patient recently had to say: “Dr. Donofrio is world renowned in her field, the best cosmetic practitioner…in the country. I have been under her care for approximately one and a half years and find her expertise phenomenal. My face, after 55 years, looks incredible due to her artistic ability…I recommend Dr. Donofrio to anyone seeking a non-invasive method of regaining a youthful look. She also offers several other cosmetic procedures. Her work ethic is impeccable and I truly enjoy having the opportunity to speak with her. You will find Dr. Donofrio extremely pleasant.”

Nature or Nurture – Understanding What Causes Signs of Aging & How To Treat Fine Lines, Wrinkles & More

Is it nature or nurture that determines how your skin will age? If you’re wondering whether genetics or preventative measures (or a lack thereof!) are more important when it comes to achieving youthful, radiant skin, you’re not alone.

New Beauty Magazine recently shed some light on this matter in its’ Summer 2014 issue. “30% of skin aging is genetic,” the beauty magazine revealed, “and 70% you can control!”

Many women and men mistakenly believe that if their parents and grandparents suffered from excess, sagging skin, deep furrows and fine lines and wrinkles, there is simply nothing they can do to prevent this. False!

The effects of consistently using physician-grade skincare products and sunscreen cannot be overestimated. As over 90% of facial aging is caused by sun exposure, finding a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects from UVA and UVB rays is major. In addition, establishing an effective nighttime skincare regimen is extremely important. Incorporating products with retinol and antioxidants is essential. To learn more about sun safety and product recommendations, see Dr. Lisa Donofrio’s recent tips in Family Circle Magazine.

Did you know that BOTOX® in NYC also has preventative anti-aging advantages? It’s true. The #1 cosmetic non-surgical medical aesthetic enhancement treatment in the United States can do more than reduce the appearance of existing frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet – it can actually prevent and delay them from forming. “I recommend Botox sooner rather than later,” says board-certified dermatologist and Manhattan cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Donofrio. “Undergoing Botox as early as the mid-to-late twenties can help prevent and delay these cosmetic concerns.”

Another popular option for outsmarting Mother Nature is customized chemical peels in New York City. By shedding dead skin cells and stimulating the production of newer, healthier skin cells, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and more all reduced, leaving you with a noticeably more refreshed and rejuvenated complexion.

Laying Chemical Peel Myths To Rest – Finally! Chemical Peels in Manhattan, NY

A recent article in Skin Inc. Magazine stated the following, “Although chemical peels are an obvious choice to reveal younger, smoother, brighter skin, there are outdated beliefs about how peels have to perform.”

Here at The Savin Center in New York City, we frequently see patients who have numerous outdated or untrue beliefs about chemical peels. Well, we’re here to lay these myths to rest, once and for all!

Results Take Weeks or Months

Absolutely untrue! Many chemical peels offer dramatic results after just one treatment. A moderate-to-strong chemical peel can offer significant improvement for signs of aging and other imperfections in just 1 week.

Extensive Downtime

Unlike chemical peels of decades past, today’s chemical peels are completely customizable – and this means in terms of downtime, too. A mild chemical peel before a big event like a wedding or holiday party can pose little to no downtime.

No Pain, No Gain

What may be true on the sports field isn’t true when it comes to the skin. Chemical peels in New York City pose little to no discomfort. Keeping face moisturized and hydrated makes the peeling process largely painless.

One Size Fits All

No, no, no! Everyone has a unique complexion and this means a unique and customized chemical peel. NYC chemical peels come in various strengths and active ingredients to offer the best results for each client.

Home & DIY Ingredients

While Pinterest beauty treatments can be fun, the ingredients in our chemical peels are more effective than anything you’ll be able to do at home. That is because they are physician-grade, meaning the ingredients are more active and of a higher quality.
