The Less Invasive Alternative in Florida
The latest in less invasive facelifting is now available at our Tampa, Florida, center – FeatherLift. This is an exciting new, relatively noninvasive surgical technique that lifts the face. Special sutures are threaded through the skin of the cheek. As the sutures are tightened, the face is lifted.

Besides the cosmetic advantages, FeatherLift offers several benefits. The FeatherLift can be done under local or under twilight sedation. Swelling and bruising are minimal. Recovery is relatively quick. Patients experience minimal pain and discomfort, and can return to daily activities the day following the FeatherLift. Also, there are no external sutures necessary for you to look years younger with FeatherLift. In Florida, Dr. Joshua Halpern is one of the only cosmetic surgeons to offer this exciting new treatment.


Many Tampa residents have taken advantage of the injectable known as Restylane®. Restylane® gently smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used for lip enhancement. Restylane® contains no animal proteins and is completely biodegradable. The process of injecting Restylane® takes only 30 minutes, lasts from six to 12 months, and may be repeated when necessary. To learn more about the advantages of Restylane®, contact our Tampa office.



Many people in Tampa want to look younger without the hassles of surgery. BOTOX® and Dysport are the perfect solution for busy Tampa lifestyles. BOTOX® has been used to treat certain conditions of muscle spasms for years. At our Tampa center, BOTOX® and Dysport are most commonly employed to treat wrinkles that contribute to the signs of aging. These treatmenst are painless and takes only a few minutes. There is no down time, usually no bruising, and you can return to normal activities immediately.

Many patients stop by our Tampa office for BOTOX® injections on their lunch break.

BOTOX® and Dysport work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause crow’s feet, wrinkles around the forehead, eyebrows, and upper lip. After the injection, the muscles relax and the wrinkles disappear. To learn more about BOTOX ® in Tampa, contact our office today.

Laser Vein Removal

As we age, many of us inevitably end up with those unsightly little leg veins. Guess what? We have a laser that can treat those. Why not show off your legs without embarrassment? Now you can.

No shots are used. The blood in the veins absorbs the light from the laser and those tiny veins tend to disappear. Occasionally, you may experience some temporary bruising, though it will not restrict your activities.

Not only do we use the laser to zap veins on the legs, but also on the face. Those "telangiectasia" that appear on your nose, cheeks, and forehead can also be made to disappear with the laser.



To all those patients who suffer from rosacea, there is help for you now. Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disorder. It usually begins in middle age or later. It is characterized by a red discoloration of the skin and is most common in a person with a fair complexion. Skin thickening, particularly of the nose, may result.

In the past, there were no good treatment options. Dr. Joshua Halpern employs the first FDA-approved laser for treating rosacea. Rosacea patients do not require any shots or pain pills when undergoing this treatment. A number of patients are surprised at how pain free and well tolerated the laser procedure is. There is no down time and you can return to your normal activities.


The New Erbium Laser

Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles - one of the first signs of aging. Recently, a young woman (38 years old) came to Dr. Halpern's office complaining of wrinkles around her eyes and lips. "I look older than I feel," she said. She wanted something done, but also said: "I don't want a lot of down time."

With the introduction of the Erbium Laser, facial laser resurfacing has risen to another level. Facial resurfacing in the past meant chemical peels, face lifts, and then CO2 laser resurfacing. The skin usually took one to two weeks to heal and the skin looked red for six to 12 weeks.

Laser skin resurfacing has evolved over the last number of years. Currently, the Erbium Laser is being used to treat wrinkles. It is especially superior in treating fine wrinkles in people who are in their 30s, 40s, and early 50s. "The Erbium Laser not only resurfaces the skin, but rejuvenates it," says Dr. Halpern. "It not only helps to get rid of wrinkles, but it helps to tighten, smooth, and improve the texture of the skin."

The skin usually heals in three to five days and the redness resolves in about three weeks. Many patients are surprised how easy the recovery time is. "I was not in pain, it just felt like a sunburn." Dressings are not necessary and the patient applies an ointment to the face. Dr. Halpern performs these treatments in the office on an outpatient basis. Patients can return to their normal routine almost immediately.

The Erbium Laser is also superior to the CO2 laser in treating acne scars. A 32-year-old man who underwent the procedure stated: This was the best thing I ever did for myself." He was so happy with the procedure that he referred his sister.

Dr. Joshua Halpern is a board certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon who has been practicing for more than nine years in the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Halpern lectures and has trained plastic surgeons from around the country on the Erbium Laser. If you have any questions, please contact our office today.
