Facial Rejuvenation & Skin Care Treatments
The S-Lift or Mini-Facelift
The technique known as the s-lift or mini facelift is generally performed earlier in life that the traditional facelift. It can re-freshen specifically targeted trouble spots in a less invasive way with a quicker recovery time.
The Neck Lift
A neck lift trims excess skin, corrects muscular bands and removes excess fat that masks the smooth defined neck and jaw contours.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty helps over 230,000 people each year regain a younger, firmer eye area. Candidates for this procedure may have excess skin that hides the natural contour of the eye or impairs vision. Surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids or both for a more balanced correction.

Fillers & Botox
The use of dermal fillers is a non-surgical therapy that can often restore the fullness of a youthful face. Injections can help improve appearances of acne scars, remove creases between eyebrows, plump away forehead lines, soften smile lines, elevate down turned corners of the mouth, reduce vertical lip lines, enhance cheek contours and plump the lips.
Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure performed today with more than 4 million treatments per year. It is commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines for patients of any age. When injected into muscles, Botox blocks nerve impulses from activating the muscle so the skin above may appear relaxed.

Losing 120 pounds had my chin down literally! Dr. Giesswein and his amazing staff lifted both my chin and spirits. I look and feel fabulous. They are the best.Jane R.
I would recommend Miriam to anyone who is interested in making cosmetic improvements. I was very nervous about looking “frozen” or “puffy” but Miriam put me at ease. She listened to my concerns and she performed the procedures, both Botox between the brow and filler around the mouth, with skill and minimal discomfort. I am very happy with the resulting look which is very natural. I still look like me, only better.C.P.
One of the best things about less invasive procedures such as Botox and fillers is that you can achieve a more youthful appearance within minutes. Unfortunately there still is the ‘needle thing’. In my opinion, Dr. Giesswein’s manner and expertise make this a real non-issue.Jean B.
