FAB Facelift

image fabfacelift FAB FaceliftThe FAB Facelift is a revolutionary way to take years off of your appearance without surgery. This treatment, developed by Dr. David Alessi, uses a combination of the latest non-surgical enhancements to create dramatic results much like those of a traditional, surgical facelift. Our Beverly Hills office is your exclusive source for the FAB Facelift. While almost every cosmetic practice offers some type of non-surgical facelift these days, the FAB Facelift stands apart, with many of our patients saying that they look five to ten years younger after only minutes in our office.

Please contact us now online or call us today at 310-657-2253 to schedule your appointment. We offer the FAB Facelift for Los Angeles and Beverly Hills men and women who want a younger look without surgery.

Treatment Overview

The FAB Facelift isn’t just about achieving “FABulous” results. The name itself explains the techniques used for facial enhancement:

  • F: Fillers (such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®) are used to smooth out lines on the cheeks and around the mouth, such as nasolabial folds (extending from the nose to the mouth) and marionette lines (extending from the corners of the mouth down to the chin). These dermal fillers can also improve facial volume lost that can result in a hollow appearance in the face, below the eyes or cheeks.
  • A: Ablation (removal of surface layers of skin) is achieved through laser skin rejuvenation. We can use Fraxel®, Photofacial IPL, and other laser therapies in combination to encourage skin renewal for beautiful results.
  • B: BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to reduce wrinkles on the upper face, outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows and across the forehead. By including BOTOX treatment, the FAB Facelift is actually more comprehensive than a surgical facelift, which only focuses on the lower half or third of the face.

Local anesthesia is applied to the treatment areas to maximize comfort. The combined treatment can be completed in an hour or less. Downtime is minimal, and our FAB Facelift patients will be able to see improvements immediately after treatment. Wrinkles treated with BOTOX will take a few days to diminish and skin tone should continue to improve as dead and dull surface layers of the skin are gradually replaced by new, smoother layers beneath. The FAB Facelift can address these and other cosmetic concerns:

  • Wrinkles on the cheeks and forehead and around the eyes and mouth,
  • Deep vertical furrows between the brows
  • Hollowness in the cheeks
  • Minor skin sagging
  • Skin with sun damage, age spots, blotchiness, rosacea, or enlarged pores

Results will last several months before a touch-up treatment is required. Not all components of the FAB Facelift will need to be performed at each follow-up visit. For instance, BOTOX treatments may be scheduled about four months apart, while laser skin rejuvenation results may last a year or more.

Other Non-Surgical Enhancements
The components of a FAB Facelift can be performed independently for our patients who need only focused treatment of a particular concern.

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX is the go-to treatment for wrinkles on the outer edges of the eyes (crow’s feet), in between the eyebrows (frown lines) or on the forehead.
  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable fillers can smooth out wrinkles around the mouth and on the lower face. They are quite versatile and can also be used to fill in facial depressions, hollowness and even improve the appearance of certain types of scars.
  • Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Fraxel® and Photofacial treatments can be performed on many areas of the body for improved skin tone.

Considering Surgery?
At the Alessi Institute, our skilled doctors have performed thousands of facial plastic surgery procedures and can give you even longer-lasting results through surgical enhancement. During your FAB Facelift consultation, you may want to discuss whether a surgical facelift is a better choice for your goals, or whether combining your non-surgical treatments with a surgical procedure such as neck lift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, may be another option to help compliment your FAB Facelift.
