Restylane® is perfect for those patients seeking to re-plump areas of lost volume or for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® is unique from other facial fillers in that it attracts water molecules when injected into the skin, so it continues to add volume to the treatment areas for an average of six months per treatment. Restylane® may be injected to reduce the appearance of laugh lines, lipstick lines (above the upper lip), corners of the mouth, and/or marionette lines.

We’ve all heard the expression “no pain, no gain”, but as you might expect and as the 2012 ASPS statistics indicate, a growing number of Americans are opting for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures and their shorter downtimes over traditional facial plastic surgery procedures. With nearly 11 million “mini” cosmetic procedures performed in the last year, Atlanta cosmetic and plastic surgeon Dr. John LeRoy wants patients to understand their facial rejuvenation options and what they can expect from each procedure.
Below are the four most commonly requested Atlanta facial rejuvenation procedures he performs in order of the degree of invasiveness and result noticeability.
Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing: Completed with fractionated, DOT CO2 laser technology in-office with gentle numbing, this procedure typically lasts less than an hour and works to target and exfoliate dead, dull skin cells contributing to hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or mild to moderate wrinkling. This treatment is not a method for skin or muscle tightening but should be used instead to treat superficial concern. Those with lax skin and extensive wrinkling are typically more suited for Band Aid Plastic Surgery procedures.
Band Aid Browlift or Band Aid Blepharoplasty: For those patients with areas of aging isolated to the top third or lower third of the face, Dr. LeRoy can perform a partial Band Aid Facelift to address lax muscles or sagging skin. Band Aid Blepharoplasty may be performed to address fat deposits underneath the eyes. Like Band Aid Laser treatment, a Band Aid Browlift / Upper Facelift or Band Aid Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is performed in-office with gentle numbing.
Band Aid Facelift: Developed in 1997 for patients seeking overall rejuvenation but not to the extent provided by traditional facelift surgery, Band Aid Facelift makes patients look an average of ten years younger. Completed in-office with gentle numbing, Dr. LeRoy performs the Band Aid Facelift to remove excess skin and retighten underlying muscles through a series of very small incisions hidden within the hairline. Most Band Aid Facelifts are able to drive themselves home after the procedure and return to their normal activities within a few days.
Facelift: Used to address signs of aging over the entire face, this procedure is performed in the hospital OR under twilight anesthesia. The full, traditional facelift provides the most comprehensive treatment for those with moderate to advanced facial skin wrinkling and sagging. Because there is more manipulation of the underlying facial muscles and skin excision, the average recuperation time is several weeks.
During his over 20 years of practice experience, Dr. LeRoy has performed over 3000 Band Aid Facelifts alone. He understands that the ever-evolving stream of surgical and mini facial rejuvenation procedures like the Vampire Facelift or the Lifestyle Lift can get confusing to consumers.
The important thing to understand about any “mini” procedure is that the results are not going to be as comprehensive as a traditional procedure. The skin and muscle of the face will continue to age and eventually require re-treatment to maintain the results.
Please contact Dr. LeRoy’s office to schedule a consultation for any of the above facial procedures. You can also connect with Dr. LeRoy on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + for the latest cosmetic and plastic surgery news.
If you’re ready to do a little spring sprucing but aren’t quite ready for facial plastic surgery, now is the perfect time to schedule your Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment. Now through April 30th, 2013, patients who schedule full face Band Aid Laser treatment with Dr. John LeRoy will receive $1000 OFF their procedure total.
Perfect for reducing mild to moderate signs of aging such as wrinkles and sun damage, Band Aid Laser Treatment utilizes DOT laser technology to induce the body’s wound healing response to produce tighter, younger looking skin.

If you haven’t noticed personally, the one thing everyone has to look forward to as they get older is aging eyes. Not only does our vision change with age, but the skin around our eyes is also highly impacted by our repeated facial expressions and lifestyle factors like smoking, hydration, and sun exposure. Whether you’re 30 or 65, eye aging can have a major impact on overall facial aesthetics. Having seen patients for cosmetic facial rejuvenation for over 20 years, I guide patients to look at the root of their aging symptoms when selecting eye rejuvenation procedures. Below is a selection of the most frequent eye concerns patients exhibit:
- Crow’s Feet– These wrinkles around the outer corners of the eyes don’t just happen with age. I see patients in their 30s and even in their 20s whose repeated facial expressions have caused these tiny lines to form. Neuromodulators like Botox® or Dysport® are effective in temporarily reducing the appearance of crow’s feet.
- Sagging upper eyelids– Also known as orbital prolapse or ptosis, this sagging skin of the eyelid happens as our bodies slow production of structural fibers like collagen and elastin. Because sagging is usually the result of excess skin, I often recommend upper blepharoplasty to surgically excise the excess tissue and restore a more alert appearance.
- Permanently furrowed brow– Deep wrinkles along the forehead and brow can make us look upset all the time. Like crow’s feet and sagging lids, less elastic skin and repeated facial expressions are to blame here. To reduce mild to moderate wrinkles on the forehead, I typically recommend neuromodulators or Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing. For those patients with deeper forehead wrinkles, a browlift may be needed to address underlying muscles.

I talk a lot on my cosmetic surgery blog about statistics in plastic surgery. It’s not for a love of numbers, but an understanding that examples of the bigger picture help better navigate changes to treatments offered as well as enhance patient satisfaction. Over the last 20 years of cosmetic and plastic surgery practice here in Atlanta, I’ve heard a lot of patients express their desire not to look like a different version of themselves, but to look like they did 10 years ago.
This request is what led me to develop the Band Aid Facelift in 1997 followed by several other mini plastic surgery procedures like Band Aid Liposuction, Band Aid Tummy Tuck, and Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing. As evidenced by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ statistics released earlier this month, many Americans are seeking these subtle cosmetic changes to make them look like a more youthful version of themselves. Over the last year, though the rate of plastic surgery procedures performed actually decreased compared to 2011, the number of minimally invasive procedures increased.
The top five most performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, according to ASPS, included Botox® Cosmetic for wrinkles, chemical peels, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers (Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm®). While several media outlets have pointed to the decreased downtime and expense associated with these procedures compared to traditional plastic surgery, I also believe it’s a strong desire for most patients to achieve natural-looking plastic surgery results.
