Dr. Capuano has been offering a non-surgical method of facial enhancement and is accepting patients for the “WOW” procedure.

Patients named it the “WOW” procedure as the majority of patients undergoing this procedure look at the results immediately after treatment and say “Wow!”

This may be considered a component of the so-called liquid face lift. The procedure involves injection of filler that creates a subtitle higher cheekbone look. The procedure can also gently lift the cheek and help decrease the lines from the nose to the mouth. The procedure may also gently improve the jowl area.

The WOW procedure is done in the office and takes approximately 30 minutes.  Dr. Capuano carefully examines the areas to be treated and determines how it can be “sculpted” to improve the contour of the face and areas of concern. After outlining the areas and the patient’s approval, a small amount of local anesthesia is injected for comfort. The contouring is then carried out with careful injection techniques using a special cannula.

Most patients have minimal swelling and no bruising.  A patient may return to usual activity after the treatment. Unfortunately, sports activities are not considered “usual activity!”

While results vary depending on the boney structure of the face, the thickness of the tissues, and other variables, results are very acceptable with rare exception.
