Martinsville NJ, August 20, 2015 — Reflections Center for Skin & Body ( proudly uses local anesthesia for all procedures, reducing the risk and costs associated with general anesthetics.

Hundreds of people opt out of getting cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries every year because they’re nervous about being put under — and rightfully so! General anesthesia comes with a hefty price tag and a long list of potential scenarios and side effects. At Reflections Center for Skin & Body, all face lift procedures and surgeries are done under local anesthesia, leaving you with more control.

Local anesthesia allows you to remain comfortably awake while you get your mini facelift or eyebrow lift at Reflections Center. This process is much less costly than general anesthesia because it affects your body differently. While general anesthetics restrict your entire body, local anesthesia only numbs a specific area. Since this is a less extreme method, it is not necessary to have an anesthesiologist monitor your breathing and heart functions for the duration of the procedure (resulting in a lower cost).

Local anesthesia also yields a shorter recovery time than general anesthesia. You won’t “wake up” feeling loopy and sluggish because you’ll never be asleep. Your body is at less of a risk with local anesthesia because it is only affecting targeted, specific areas. Having a mini facelift done shouldn’t feel like an intense surgical procedure. At Reflections Center for Skin & Body, we want you to explore all of our face lift procedures, performed under local anesthesia so that you don’t have to deal with the risks and expenses. General anesthesia isn’t for everybody, but the option to have a facelift while remaining awake should be!
