The Madonna Lift
Named after you-know-who, a reported fan, the Madonna Lift helps eradicate dark circles, hollowing, and wrinkling around the eye area. It's a combination of a second-generation CO2 resurfacing laser (a.k.a. Fraxel) in conjunction with PRP — the "vampire facial," which consists of withdrawing a patient's blood, running it through a centrifuge, and then injecting it back into the patient in the areas with issues he or she wants to address. "This is the first time without surgery that we can create an improvement in discoloration and laxity lines around the eyes," says Dr. Sadick. You'll need a total of two or three treatments over the course of six weeks, and each treatment costs about $1,500. Sadick says you can expect some redness and a bit of micro-bruising after each treatment.
