Botox + Laser: Botox for crows feet lines (prevention more then correction). Laser for crows feet and lower lids (both prevention and correction). Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is not really the mainstay anymore for the lower eyelid, but is a great choice for the upper lids. Newer technology like ultherapy (ultrasound) may prove to be helpful in this area as well. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

How do I control pain after a lifestyle lift? I am a 55-year-old woman with a very droopy neck. My doctor suggested that i get lifestyle lift, but I am not very good at dealing with pain. How painful is the recovery after this cosmetic procedure? Will tyl
Pain : Pain control after facelift surgery is usually achieved with a combination medication such as oxycodone and Acetaminophen (this combination is the same as percocet). Typically patients need such heavy pain medication for only 2-3 days. After that, Acetaminophen alone or a safe anti-inflammatory, like celebrex, (celecoxib) can be used. The lifestyle lift is a brand-named procedure, but it typically represents a "mini-facelift" approach. Facelifts requiring less-invasive surgery may result in a small decrease in post-operative pain compared with traditional approaches. However, a less aggressive facelift approach may produce less dramatic improvement in your face. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there any cosmetic procedures and/or products that work as good as botox on eliminating skin wrinkles but without animal testing?
Doctor with ultherapy machine: will this procedure also smooth out fine wrinkles around my eyes and on the forehead (this way no botox each 3 mos)?
NO: Ultherapy machines use focused energy of ultrasound to heat deeper structures. The problem is like with many other devices, that this energy is not delivered and absorbed evenly and the long term results are far from good. With eventual destruction of fat under the skin and hollowing of the face as a result. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
TMJ: Most people make this mistake. The TMJ is the temporomandibular joint (tmj). Probably what you meant is tmd which stands for temporomandibular dysfunction. Tmd is not considered cosmetic but it's difficult to get any insurance to cover the problem because it's too subjective. I recommend pre authorizing any claims with insurance before committing to any treatment so you know what you must pay. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
