For the first time, women and men in the Myrtle Beach  area now have access to the QuickLift®, a revolutionary mini facelift procedure that tightens sagging skin along the jaw line and chin, offering immediate, natural-looking results without the lengthy recovery and costs associated with traditional facelift surgeries.

Dr. Darrell W. Graham is the first doctor in Myrtle Beach to offer the procedure. Unlike procedures with similar names that tighten only skin, the QuickLift Facelift permanently suspends the underlying structures of the lower face (SMAS), jaw line and neck, offering men and women the benefit of a more youthful appearance for years to come. The QuickLift  is performed under local anesthesia or with twilight sedation, and may be completed in just a two  hours, when performed alone. Small incisions and shorter surgical time result in less swelling and bruising, and a shorter recovery period, with most individuals able to return to their normal routines within a few days.

“In my more than 10 years of surgical expertise, I have not seen a minimally invasive procedure that produces such outstanding results,” says Dr. Darrell W. Graham. “This is a great option for those who want to stay ahead of the aging process, but do not want to go the route of a full facelift. Lax skin along and under the chin, jaw line and neck can add years to a person’s appearance and contribute to a tired, worn facial expression.  The QuickLift addresses this area, producing an overall firming of the lower facial area and noticeable jaw line definition for a more elegant, youthful appearance.”

Dr. Kristen Tarbet

Dr. Kristen Tarbet, our QuickLift physician in Bellevue, WA has another happy QuickLift patient.  Here is what she said on RealSelf.com: 

In the end I was happy and the cost was very reasonable. Although she uses the term “Quick Lift” for marketing purposes, she does a much more extensive facelift. I do want to add that the term “Quick Lift” is being given a bad rap. It is not a one size fits all like some of the other marketing facelifts you see on TV commercials. I got a really nice face and eye lift for what my unique needs were. I wasn’t considering to do my eyes until after my consultation and then I realized how much my eyes made me look old and after deciding to do the eyes I am so glad I did; it made a huge difference. I consulted another Plastic Surgeon in Seattle before her and he never even mentioned my eyes and his cost was higher than hers even without the eyelid surgery.

My facelift took a total of 4 hours (there was nothing quick about it). She did an excellent job. I will also make a review of the eyelift and cost on a seperate review. The facelift was $4,000. The anesthesia, Operating Room (OR) and the eyelids were a separate charge.

I’m waiting for the eyes to clear up. The marker pen she used looks like she drew a makeup line on my eye and it’s just starting to disappear. I still have a few tiny stitches above the eyelids that need to fall out. I will try to make a video of the way the eyes and sides looks when its completely healed. She did a great job of following the hair line. She opted not to go inside the hair line because my hair is so thin there that the scare would show as a straight line inside the hair vs. doing the cut following the natural curve of my hairline just outside of the hair. Because I don’t scar bad it’s already looking pretty good (just 10 days out). She didn’t charge me for the work on my neck because she said it wasn’t bad. She cut under my chin and did liposuction and then pulled the skin up behind my ears.

Oculoplastic surgeons perform procedures such as the repair of droopy eyelids, repair of tear duct obstructions, orbital fracture repairs, removal of tumors in and around the eyes, eyelid reconstruction and facial rejuvenation procedures including laser skin resurfacing, eye lifts, brow lifts, and facelifts. I am very happy with my decision of going to a Board certified surgeon that specializes in the face.

United States military recruits receive FREE tattoo removal during month of July

(PITTSBURGH – June 7, 2011) — For many young men and women, serving in the United States Military is a life-long dream. Many, however, find that life goal denied because of an earlier decision to get a tattoo.  During the month of July, The Skin Center Medical Spa, with three locations in Pittsburgh, PA, will offer FREE laser tattoo removal to help those who have chosen to serve their country.

Although each United States military brand has its own policy regarding tattoos, general long-standing tattoo policy excludes potential recruits from enlisting if visible body art or tattoos located on their arms or legs exceed a specified size or are considered to be extremist, indecent, sexist or racist.  Additionally, tattoos on the head and face are prohibited with the exception of permanent make-up.

“The Skin Center is pleased to make laser tattoo removal available at no charge to help recruits comply with enlisting policies. Our laser tattoo removal technology can remove tattoos by dramatically lightening or eliminating even the most stubborn pigments including blue, green, purple, red and yellow,” said Adrienne Ashtari, RN, registered nurse practitioner for The Skin Center Medical Spa. “A series of tattoo removal treatment sessions is necessary for laser tattoo removal; however, the treatments are quick and performed with minimal discomfort.”

The Skin Center Medical Spa in Wexford, Mt.Lebanon and Shadyside offer tattoo removal using the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available today. The MedLite® Q-Switch laser emits two wavelengths of laser light to remove or significantly lighten the widest variety of tattoo inks (professional, amateur and surgical tattoos) in fewer sessions with less chance of residual scarring.    

For more information about laser tattoo removal, contact The Skin Center Medical Spa at 1-800-429-1151 or visit our website.

About QuickLift®
The QuickLift®, developed by Dominic Brandy, MD and performed by a number of doctors personally trained by him, is an improved version of the S-Lift, which has been performed since the late 1990s with limited results. The QuickLift provides an overall lower- to mid- facelift and improves the appearance of the upper neck, offering significant age-diminishing effects with minimal downtime and lasting results. The QuickLift is designed for men and women between the ages of 40 and 65+ who want to stay ahead of the aging process. At these ages, most individuals lose elasticity in their skin and develop varying degrees of looseness along the jaw line and beneath the chin. Unlike procedures with similar names and most mini facelifts that tighten only skin, the QuickLift permanently suspends the underlying structures of the lower face (SMAS) offering men and women the benefit of a more youthful appearance for years to come. Although the QuickLift can produce significant aesthetic improvement for most people, after any facial procedure the normal aging process resumes. Lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure, and heredity all play a part in determining how long the desired result will last. For more information, visit http://www.quickliftmd.com
