Small Changes Make a Big Difference

According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the newest trend in plastic surgery isn’t new at all – in fact, it’s something you’re already pretty familiar with: you. It’s the natural look, or in other words, you, only better. Are you ready to try the natural look trend and reveal your best self? These procedures can help.

Eyelid-Lift (Blepharoplasty)

An eyelid-lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove excess skin on the eyelids. As we age, our eyelids lose collagen, causing them to sag or droop. This can not only make us look older and tired, but it can also be dangerous. Droopy eyelids can restrict our field of vision, making it difficult to do everyday tasks like drive, work or watch television. An eyelid-lift may not be a drastic change, but it can certainly improve your vision and perk up your appearance without making you look too “done.”


Botox gets a lot of flack for making faces look frozen or stiff, but when applied correctly it can look natural. The goal is to make a change that is small enough that nobody notices anything different about you that they can really pinpoint – just that you look better or more refreshed. Furthermore, because Botox doesn’t work immediately, the results will slowly materialize over about two weeks, so there’s no immediate, drastic change.

Perioral Laser CO2 Resurfacing

Perioral laser CO2 resurfacing is the original laser resurfacing. It uses light in two ways: to promote the stimulation of collagen underneath the dermis to generate healthy new skin, and to work on the surface of the skin to remove lesions, scarring and sun damage by resurfacing and then sculpting the skin. Results are usually visible within seven to 10 days. Perioral laser CO2 resurfacing is a minimally invasive way to take years off your complexion without going under the knife or looking overdone.
