Ask Dr. Macrene: Is My Filler Face-Lift Right for You?
Pioneered, published and performed exclusively by Dr. Macrene, the Alexiades Filler Lift is a minimally invasive anti-aging treatment that uses dermal fillers precisely placed across the hairline to provide a lifting effect. Unlike a traditional facelift, the Alexiades Filler Lift is able to reverse the laxity effect of age due to osteoporosis, loss of subcutaneous support tissues, or loss of elasticity, without changing the patient's natural contour. The results are far more natural-looking than what you might see from a surgical facelift or from injectables.
 
Alexiades M. Alexiades Filler Lift Method. J Drugs Dermatol 2017 Nov; 16 (11): 1072
"My method entails placing hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the scalpline and hairline so as to provide a lifting effect without the product being in any way apparent on the face. Akin to surgical facelifting, I place the filler in the areas where a surgeon would routinely cut and sew to obtain a lift to the lower, mid-face, and upper face, including the posterior and pre-auricular areas, and the temporal and frontal scalp line. Instead of incising and excising skin, I employ the tension caused by the deposition of filler to create the lift in vectors depicted to achieve the lift required to elevate jowels, nasolabial folds, periorbital folds, and the brow. In placing the hyaluronic acid fillers intradermally, my method has achieved long-term improvements beyond the duration of the filler, likely due to the neocollagenesis that has been observed with intradermal placement of hyaluronic acid fillers. To date, I have treated over one thousand cases, and have not observed any incidence of hair loss or occlusion due to intradermal placement."
 
The Alexiades Filler Lift Method is available exclusively by appointment with Dr. Macrene Alexiades with prices starting at $1,200.
 
What Does the Future of Fillers Look Like?
 
While Dr. Macrene continues to use injectables like Botox® and dermal fillers in her practice, she has successfully translated cosmetic procedures into clean, active ingredients that you can get at home on a daily basis.
 
“I have spent what feels like a lifetime developing devices and injectables to replace cosmetic surgery, but now with MACRENE actives, I’m going to spend the rest of my life cocktailing actives to replace cosmetic procedures. I see this as a way of restoring skin quality and getting your stem cells to do the job for you. And I think that’s one of the reasons why my patients look the best. It’s because I am using filler as a biostimulatory and because my goal is for your skin to do its job — and ultimately to behave 10 or 15 years younger.”
