Some call this neighborhood the dream town, and it’s not hard to guess why. Residents claim that the Pacific Palisades features the best of what California has to offer. Filled with wild-haired palm trees, tall evergreens, and mountains that overlook the ocean, this area is as picturesque as you can get. Populated with just over 25,000 residents, it can feel more like a small town rather than the Hollywood city that’s a 25-minute drive away. The Pacific Palisades is like a paradise on Earth; its crystal clear water sparkles under the radiant year-round sunshine. The beauty of this neighborhood inspires many to seek ways that they can restore their youth.
Pacific Palisades Facelifts
Aging is a natural part of life. Over time, the skin of the face loses elasticity. It results in fine lines, droopy skin, jowls, and a loss of volume. Traditionally, people have turned to surgical facelifts to restore their appearances. This procedure, also called a rhytidectomy, tightens and stretches the skin of the face. It can cause infections, bleeding, discoloration, and skin necrosis. Another common complication is hematoma, where blood pools outside of the blood vessels. Nerve injuries can occur during the surgery, which results in a loss of sensation. Those who smoke may experience skin loss due to decreased blood flow. In some cases, patients will have hair loss and baldness at the incision sites. Patients often feel tired and experience discomfort in the weeks that follow the surgery, which prevents them from enjoying the finer things that the Palisades has to offer, like hiking trails at the Will Rogers State Historic Park. People in the Pacific Palisades who want to restore their youth are often discouraged by these side effects – how do they reduce the appearance of wrinkles, without risking damage to their skin? Thanks to Dr. Newman’s innovations with stem cell technology, there is a less invasive procedure available.
Non Surgical Facelifts
Maybe you want to revitalize the skin of your face, but you want to avoid the pulling, cutting, and scarring that comes along with surgical facelifts, or you do not want to be put under general anesthesia. If so, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Newman is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Certified Cosmetic Surgeon that has created a procedure that’s much less invasive than surgical facelifts. With the use of stem cells, volume and vitality are brought to the face to transform your appearance and turn back the hands of time. You’ll be feeling fresh and ready to join in the festivities downtown at The Village in no time.
Stem Cell Facelifts
Your body naturally contains adult stem cells, which are stored in fat. Using a procedure that was innovated by Dr. Newman 20 years ago, these cells are harvested and re-injected to regenerate and repair tissues. Since the fat cells are taken from your own body, this procedure involves mini liposuction. It can be used for cosmetic purposes like a facelift but has also shown success in treating musculoskeletal injuries and auto-immune skin diseases. People will admire your results just as they do the Roman-inspired architecture at the Getty Villa.
How do you prepare for a stem cell facelift? After you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Newman to determine your optimal treatment plan, our patients coordinator will schedule your procedure and answer any questions that you may have. A week before your appointment, we ask that you avoid blood thinners such as Advil, Aspirin, herbal vitamins, fish oil, omega vitamins, and vitamin C. On the day of your procedure, it is advised that you wear loose-fitting clothing, avoid drinking caffeinated beverages, and eat a small breakfast. You will need a ride home from our office since the procedure makes use of local anesthesia, so you can ask a family member or friend, or we can arrange a car service for you. You’ll want to use an ice pack to help with the swelling; just make sure to wrap it in a cold towel first. Recovery time is shorter than with surgical facelifts, so it won’t be long before you can get back to enjoying the beautiful sights that the Pacific Palisades has to offer!
This innovative procedure is less invasive and results in more natural-looking skin than traditional facelifts. View the gallery on our website to see how truly transformative this procedure can be. Stem cell facelifts can last between 5-10 years. With surgical facelifts, the results of pulled and tightened skin can give the face a hollow, plastic appearance; they can even make the patient look older than before. Dr. Newman’s procedure uses cells from your own body to restore volume and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Convinced that a stem cell facelift is right for you?

Dr. Newman’s Stem Cell Lift® facelift technique offers a new paradigm in face lifts as it addresses and overcomes the problems encountered with the 2-dimensional face lifts and fat-grafting methods. First, it is a facelift without surgery and provides a 3-dimensional facelift without any cutting or scarring. It corrects the main cause of an aging face which is volume loss without altering the natural anatomy of your face. The procedure can be performed with a local anesthesia, there is no need for general anesthesia. The stem cell facelift cost varies from patient to patient dependent on exact treatment plan, but averages around $28,000 whereas the average cost of more contemporary methods of facial surgery can be $50,000 or higher. The cost of the stem cell facelift is a fraction of the cost of older methods of cosmetic surgery since it does not require general anesthesia and takes less time to perform. Also, the entire face (forehead, eyes, nose, temples, cheeks, laugh lines, lips, jowls, and chin) can be done all at the same time with the stem cell facelift procedure. Each area would otherwise entail a separate procedure that costs thousands of dollars.
