The popularity of injectable, wrinkle filling, and wrinkle reducing treatments like Botox®, Dysport®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and fractionated laser treatments have many people wondering why on earth they would have any form of a facelift? The answer to that question lies in the surgical procedures’ lasting results. Years of experience have allowed Dr. John LeRoy to develop a smaller, minimally invasive version of the traditional facelift: the Band Aid Facelift.
Done in-office with local anesthesia, the Band Aid Facelift has the distinct advantage of being able to target the underlying cause of very specific areas of concern. Unlike dermal fillers, injectables, or facial lasers that only treat the skin; the Band Aid Facelift physically addresses the lax underlying muscles which cause the drooping appearance and crepe wrinkles associated with aging. Also, wrinkle releasing substances like Botox® and Dysport® produce temporary results that typically last 3-4 months; wrinkle fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® can produce results that last up to a year, but will inevitably require some revision. While the face continues to age after any cosmetic facial procedure, by addressing the root issues with Band Aid procedures, patients can ensure more significant, long-lasting cosmetic results.
According to annual statistics compiled by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, cosmetic surgery patients are, overall, approaching cosmetic treatments at a younger age than the cosmetic surgery patients of years past. In an effort to address the more localized concerns of a younger demographic, Dr. LeRoy has also developed minimally invasive versions of his body and facial cosmetic surgeries including: Band Aid Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), Band Aid Liposuction, and the Band Aid Browlift.
