Start Small with a Chemical Peel
If a fading summer tan has you looking tired, consider a chemical peel. A light chemical peel will run between $150 and $250 and will refresh the top layers of your skin. As the skin returns, it will appear brighter, smoother, and more youthful. Fine lines and old scars will fade as your skin returns to normal. You can do a light peel every 4 weeks.
A medium peel will cost approximately $600 and requires a longer recovery but will yield firmer skin and deeper scar removal. A deep peel can cost as much as $3,000 and may require anesthesia. These peels are generally one-time procedures.
A Botox treatment will reduce the appearance of “dynamic” wrinkles such as crow’s feet or frown lines. Botox limits the activity of facial muscles under the skin that are causing deep wrinkles. The injections start to work after about a week and can last up to 4 months.
Botox is sold by the unit, and units are bundled together for each treatment area. You can expect to pay approximately $400 per treatment area. The number of treatment areas and injection sites will be discussed and confirmed with Dr. Mark or Dr. Robert Glasgold before the procedure starts.
Surgical Options: Rhinoplasty
If you feel that your nose detracts from your overall appearance, it may be time to consider a nose job, officially known as rhinoplasty surgery. Prior to your procedure, you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Mark or Dr. Robert Glasgold about your goals for this procedure.
It’s important to note that the goal of rhinoplasty is facial harmony and balance. Typically, the doctors will need to make only slight changes to your nose so you can feel more confident in your appearance. Radical changes generally are not part of their plan; a small change can easily accomplish your aesthetic goals and allow your other features to stand out.
Rhinoplasty surgery will cost approximately $12,000-15,000, plus facility and anesthesia. You will get prep planning worksheets and aftercare instructions. You’ll also need someone to drive you home and monitor you after your surgery.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery may be a good option if you struggle with:
- Sagging brows that look heavy
- Upper eyelid hooding
- Under-eye puffiness that makes you look tired
Blepharoplasty can also help to reduce wrinkles above and below the eyes and make your eyes appear larger and brighter. Depending on whether or not you want to treat both the upper and lower eyelids, blepharoplasty can cost as much as $6,400.
A full facelift can dramatically improve the appearance of the lower face and reduce sagging skin around your jawline. It can be done on an outpatient basis, giving you the chance to heal fully at home. This procedure has an extensive recovery period and can cost around $17,000-22,000, but the results are dramatic and long-lasting.
Before any cosmetic procedure, you will attend a private consultation with Dr. Robert or Dr. Mark Glasgold in Princeton, NJ. You’ll need to share information on your current medications and supplements to reduce the risk of complications.
In the leadup to your procedure, do your best to eat well, hydrate, rest, and exercise. Take special care to avoid toxins, such as smoke from tobacco products. Tobacco can limit or slow the healing process.
Your initial consultation can sometimes be done over the phone.
