Drehsen’s Welcome Message

Do you ever wonder why people ask you more often: Are you tired, sad, angry, or not well, even though you feel perfectly fine inside?

Well you are certainly not alone! A lot of my patients share the same story with you.

Many of my Refresher Lift patients have endured such well-meaning, but ultimately hurtful inquiries from close friends, and even perfect strangers for a long time. Until they decided to do something about it.

Intrigued by the similarities of my patients’ complaints, I began study they effects of age on our facial features. The facial outlines (or “vectors”) can change dramatically through loss of volume and gravity, projecting undesirable expressions.

A few simple facial lines (“expression lines”) by their specific alignments can convey common emotional messages. Most people understand these communications in the same way we interpret the meaning of an “Emoticon” in our text messages. When I made this realization, I decided to increase my emphasis on correcting unwelcomed expressions, and to incorporate these corrections into my facial rejuvenation technique.

This simple idea is now published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery. This review of a random sample of my Refresher Lift results by 80 medical students, demonstrates the amazingly positive social response to the improved expressoins and youthful faces!

I named this amazing response: “The Emoticon Effect”

I personally invite you to review our gallery of results and patients testimonials. I believe that you will reach the same conclusions!
