When it comes to the delicate skin of the eyes & face, it’s important to choose a surgeon who is uniquely qualified to treat these areas. A Fellow of the Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Schlessinger is a renowned surgeon in his field with extensive training in aesthetic facial procedures. Dr. Schlessinger specializes in a variety of facial cosmetic procedures. Same day surgical cases are safely performed in our state-of the art surgical suite, while many of our non-surgical facial rejuvenation options can be performed in under an hour with no downtime. When you choose Dr. Schlessinger for your cosmetic surgery, you are in the hands of one of the area’s top cosmetic eyelid & facial surgeons.
Browlifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.
Dr. Schlessinger offers a non-surgical brow lift, using BOTOX®, to create an eyebrow arch that diminishes forehead lines, while preserving natural expression. Known as the “Schlessinger Arch,” it has become one of our most requested lunch-time procedures.
A Facelift (rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure used to reduce facial wrinkles, eliminate telltale signs of aging, and improve the overall appearance of the face and jaw area. This procedure can help reverse the aging effects of time, stress, and the elements. Dr. Schlessinger is known for his conservative approach that ensures his patients receive the effective tightening and sculpting while avoiding a pulled, stretched or waxy appearance. The goal is to give you a natural, refreshed look so that you still look like yourself... only better!
A facelift can be an effective way to improve appearance and boost self-confidence, but it is not for everyone. For this reason a cosmetic consultation (always complimentary at Schlessinger Eye & Face) with Dr. Schlessinger is necessary. Patients whose skin is still relatively supple, and who are in good overall health, achieve the best results. If Dr. Schlessinger feels you are not a good candidate for surgery, he can prescribe a rejuvenation plan utilizing our non-surgical options (i.e. Fraxel, laser rejuvenation, injectables, fillers).
Facelift surgery can be combined with other procedures, including surgical [neck lift, browlift] and non-surgical [laser rejuvenation, injectables, fillers] options. Patients who understand both the possibilities of a facelift and its limitations tend to be more pleased with their results.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient's field of vision. In some cases this procedure may be covered by insurance. Typically blepharoplasty is performed in our state of the art office with local anesthesia in as little as 45 minutes. Blepharoplasty can be combined with a facelift or BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet or dark circles under the eyes.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® is an effective means of reversing the visible signs of aging. Results can be seen within a few days and can last 3-6 months.

Soft tissue fillers are injected under the skin to "plump up," contour and smooth wrinkles, lines and hollow areas in the face and to augment the lips or cheeks for a younger, fuller appearance. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Radiesse®, Restylane® & SILIKON® 1000 are a few of the replacement therapies we offer to our patients. Dr. Schlessinger can help you decide which filler is best for you.

Fraxel® is the latest technology available for laser skin resurfacing. Treatment improves skin tone, smoothes wrinkles and gives your skin a youthful appearance. The laser creates tiny holes in the skin, stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Three to six sessions are recommended for full effect. There is little to no discomfort and almost no downtime.
There may be some skin flaking after a session, but this resolves within a few days. Results can be seen a few days after the procedure, and your skin will continue to improve over the next few months.
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) facial rejuvenation can correct or erase the signs aging. The IPL machine treats sun damage, brown spots, freckles, broken blood vessels, enlarged pores, rosacea and uneven skin tone on the face, hands and body. Following treatment, you will see smoother skin, smaller pore size and fading of sun spots. Rosacea, a common vascular problem, will show significant improvement.
A cold gel is applied to the treatment area(s). Then the IPL hand piece is gently applied to your skin allowing pulses of light to be emitted to the treatment site(s). Usually, four to six treatment sessions, lasting about 20 minutes each, will provide you with beautiful long term results.
There is NO downtime- it's a "lunchtime" treatment and there's no risk to sensitive skin. You will notice a gradual, yet natural, looking improvement providing you with outstanding results. IPL is a safe solution tailor made to your skin type and condition. Call and schedule your complimentary consultation so that you can restore your youthful appearance today!

Full, natural-looking eyelashes can now be achieved through a prescription treatment called Latisse™. Latisse is the first and only eyelash treatment approved by the FDA to help grow longer, fuller and darker eyelashes and treat hypotrichosis, a condition that includes having inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
Latisse contains bimatoprost, an active ingredient that improves the appearance of your lashes and is often found in glaucoma medication. While the precise science of the treatment is not known, research suggests that the number of hairs and duration of the growth process are increased by bimatoprost.
This prescription medication is applied topically to the base of the eyelashes once a day, after makeup and contact lenses have been removed and any other skincare products have already been applied. While it does not replace mascara, Latisse offers an attractive complement to help further enhance full, long and beautiful lashes.
A mid-facelift restores youthful vitality to the mid-face, lifting the cheeks and smoothing smile lines to achieve a natural rejuvenated look without the need to undergo a full facelift. Mid-facelifts are ideal for reducing puffiness under the eyes, improving the contour of the upper cheeks, and correcting nasolabial folds. Incisions are small and hidden in the eyelids or in the mouth. Mid-facelifts are often performed in conjunction with lower-lid blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the area around the eyes or with implants to accentuate the cheeks.
Fraxel® is an FDA approved laser that targets thousands of tiny treatment areas on the skin, leaving the surrounding areas untouched. This “fractional” approach is the key to the treatment’s success. Immediately after treatment, the skin goes to work healing those targeted areas, producing new collagen under the skin.
