"Fake News" About Facial Rejuvenation to Be Revealed by Dr. Stephen Prendiville
By: Stephen Prendiville, M.D. - Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Prendiville says he sees patients who come to his office for Botox or one of the other facial fillers when what they really need is a facelift.
"There is fake news that fillers and injectables are all you'll ever need to keep looking your youthful best, but nothing could be further from the truth," he said. "The gold standard for facial rejuvenation is – and always has been – a facelift."
Dr. Prendiville, who is the Medical Director of the Assuage Luxury Spa in Naples and Fort Myers, will separate fact from fiction at a free seminar he is hosting Friday, March 13, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club at 851 Gulfshore Boulevard North in Naples. The seminar begins at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch. The seminar is free but reservations are required by calling 239-437-3900. Space is limited.
"Fillers and injectables work well as stand-alone treatments for women in their 30s and 40s, but cannot be considered the best treatment available after this period in life. Women in their 50s, 60s and 70s will require more substantial treatments to achieve spectacular results. Results obtainable with surgery aren't possible with fillers and injectables and people need to be honest about that," Dr. Prendiville said.
There is a cost factor involved. A facelift or eyelid surgery cost more than fillers, but there is a disadvantage to fillers too.
"A filler will only last about six to eight months and then you'll need to keep repeating it to maintain the same look. A facelift may be more expensive initially but it can last 10 or more years," he said.
Using before and after pictures of actual patients, Dr. Prendiville will discuss the latest advances in facelifts, eyelid lifts, nose surgery, lasers, and reconstructive surgery. He also will review injectable wrinkle fillers Botox®, Sculptra®, Juvederm®; Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Radiesse®, Voluma®, Vollure®, and Revanesse Versa® for deeper wrinkles and lines.
He also will discuss "Genius," a new non-invasive non-surgical device that can help reduce the depth of wrinkles, tighten skin, reduce acne scarring, stretch marks and improve skin texture.
Dr. Prendiville is the first facial plastic surgeon in Florida to offer the new Genius, which was developed by Lutronic, a global aesthetic laser medical device manufacturer.
