Dr. Drehsen’s Life Changing RefresherLift℠
The RefresherLift℠ and the “Happy” Emoticon Effect
Whether you’re looking to return to a more youthful version of yourself, or exasperated of well-meaning friends asking whether you’re tired or unwell, Dr. Drehsen’s RefresherLift℠ is the answer you’re looking for.
Unlike many traditional facelifts, the RefresherLift℠ is a refined and holistic approach to improve appearance and expression while restoring a natural, more youthful look. This customized facial rejuvenation technique utilizes specific strategies to address the individual’s needs, desires and facial structure. Dr. Drehsen developed the unique Reefed Purse-String suturing technique to return facial volumes to their previous levels and locations. Not only are the results of this technique highly effective in addressing sagging cheeks, neck and jawline, but results are predictable and less invasive than deep plane lifts. His Reefed Purse-String technique can be utilized on persons of any age. Along with other specialized strategies, this allows Dr. Drehsen to simultaneously address and resolve most other facial issues, including forehead wrinkles, low brow, puffy lower eyelids, droopy neck skin, long or thin upper life and various scars, spots, wrinkles and fine lines.
The RefresherLift℠ evolved directly from Dr. Drehsen’s own research into the effect of age on facial features. Over time, upwardly oriented facial outlines (or “vectors”) change dramatically due to loss of volume, tissue weakening and gravity. Those changes very often lead to undesirable facial expressions, which often convey common–but inaccurate–emotional messages to one’s entourage. Dr. Drehsen recognized this phenomenon and coined the term “The Emoticon Effect”. Basically, people evaluate and make assumptions of feeling based on a few lines in facial appearance, just like reading an emoticon or emoji.
Dr. Drehsen’s initial research, study and results were published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and medical students have participated in studies confirming his work.
The data doesn’t lie. The improved expressions of a more youthful face after his RefresherLift℠ provide a measurably increased positive social response and a profound social impact. Review some of our before and after photos to see the changes for yourself.
