The Most Popular Procedures After a Divorce


A divorce is a significant decision that signals a new phase of your life. It’s understandable you would want to improve your appearance after ending your marriage – not only because you want to feel like you’re making a fresh start, but also because you’re planning on reentering the dating world and want to put your best face forward. Here’s a closer look at some of the most popular minimally invasive procedures that Dr. Matarasso’s newly single clients request.


1. Liquid Facelift

If you are concerned about mild to moderate signs of facial aging, but aren’t willing to undergo an invasive surgery such as a facelift, you have another option. The term “liquid facelift” refers to using neuromodulators such as Botox® in conjunction with dermal fillers like Juvéderm to remove wrinkles and improve facial volume.


Botox creates temporary paralysis in the muscles around the eyes and eyebrow area, improving crow’s feet, brow furrows, and the “11 lines” between the eyebrows. It relaxes existing wrinkles and helps prevent new ones from forming. Fillers can also add subtle volume and contour to the cheeks and lips while erasing the fine lines around the mouth.


There’s no downtime, stitches, or anesthesia involved with a liquid facelift, and you don’t have to take time away from work or other regular activities. It’s easy to maintain your long-term results by returning to our office for periodic touch-up treatments a couple of times a year.


2. PRP Facial

The PRP facial, commonly nicknamed the “vampire facial” on social media, combines the healing factors present in your plasma with the collagen-inducing benefits of microneedling for incredible results.


First, we perform the microneedling procedure to create thousands of microscopic puncture wounds in your face. Then, we spread platelet-rich plasma drawn from your blood over the skin. The platelets are rich in nutrients that penetrate deeply into the dermis, where they provide anti-aging benefits and improve your skin’s quality from within. The result will be a brighter, softer, smoother complexion.


3. CoolSculpting®

We’d all like to attain a slimmer silhouette, but often, your efforts in the gym aren’t enough to banish the bulges of unwanted fat from problem areas such as your belly, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells and cause them to die off. After your body naturally flushes out the dead cells, they’ll be gone for good, leaving you with a leaner and more toned physique.


4. Hair Restoration

Society puts tremendous pressure on people to look young and vital at any age. Unfortunately, many men and women experience hair thinning and premature hair loss that makes them appear older and less vibrant. A hair transplant can help you regrow a thicker, fuller head of hair so you can stop hiding your degree of hair loss with hats, scarves, and wigs.


Using an advanced technique called follicular unit extraction, Dr. Matarasso takes tiny bundles of one to four hairs from a “donor” area where you have plenty of hair – such as the back or sides of your head – and carefully inserts them into the balding areas. Once the transplanted hair takes root and enters the normal hair growth cycle, you can expect to see more hair density within a year after your procedure.


5. Ultherapy®

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared technique that can tighten loose skin from your forehead to your décolletage, with no need for surgery. This revolutionary procedure stimulates new collagen growth with ultrasound energy, which helps kick your healing process into high gear. Over the next two to three months, you’ll notice the firming and tightening of sagging skin.
