Many people wish to improve the appearance of their face without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
With the onset of fine lines, wrinkles and sunken features, facial rejuvenation is necessary in order to significantly slow the natural aging process and help you feel youthful once more. But instead of undergoing facelift or brow lift surgery, you can receive a nonsurgical “liquid face lift” from Destination Aesthetics. Our signature Destination Lift works to relax wrinkle-causing muscles and tighten the skin so that you look years younger. The procedure uses a minimum of five customized syringes of filler and 40-50 units of BOTOX® for an optimal outcome.
What is the Destination Lift?
The Destination Lift is unique to the Destination Aesthetics office. The procedure involves the combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX® to lift sagging skin under the brow, near the eyelids and around the chin. Each injectable is strategically placed in the skin to lift areas lacking in volume in order to add fullness to the face and create a smoother texture.
Many clients find the Destination Lift appealing because of its ability to be customized to each recipient. Depending on the areas in which you would like treated, the fillers can be injected in order to augment specific features. Surgery and anesthesia are not necessary, and the outpatient procedure can be completed in one session.
Candidates for the Destination Lift
As with all injectable fillers, candidates must not be allergic to any of the active ingredients present and should disclose any pertinent medical history before receiving a Destination Lift. However, if you are in good general health and have realistic expectations for the procedure and recovery, then a Destination Lift may be right for you. Those with wrinkles, drooping features and haggard-looking skin will benefit the most from the liquid face lift, particularly if these concerns are located near the chin, eyebrows and eyelids. The best way to determine your candidacy for the Destination Lift is to schedule a consultation with a member of the Destination Aesthetics team. Additionally, the Destination Lift is gentle enough to be combined with other cosmetic treatment as well as a healthy skin-care regimen in order to increase the longevity of the procedure.
Choosing the Proper Filler
The fillers used during your Destination Lift will depend on the facial features being restored. Wrinkles caused by muscle overexertion, such as forehead and frown lines, will typically receive BOTOX® injections since the filler is designed to relax muscles and reduce wrinkles. However, fine lines that are present due to folding skin, without muscle contraction, like smile lines or wrinkles around the nose, will receive dermal filler. Both injectables may be used throughout the face in order to yield the best results, and regardless of the filler you receive, the procedure should be relatively painless. We offer both BOTOX® and Dysport for wrinkles caused by muscle contraction and a variety of dermal fillers made by brands such as Juvéderm, Sculptra and Radiesse.
At Destination Aesthetics, our goal is to reverse the aging process and restore features in the most natural way possible. We do not want to simply focus on augmentation, but we wish to enhance your naturally radiant features to look more refreshed. We aim to perform our Destination Lift procedure in a way that complements the natural contours of your face so that your features remain in proportion with one another. We consider your facial anatomy, the amount of correction needed as well your cosmetic goals when designing a treatment plan.
Receiving a Destination Lift
During an initial consultation, we will be able to create a custom and comprehensive treatment plan for your Destination Lift. The injections administered may vary, which means that their onset may differ as well. Whereas dermal fillers take effect immediately and last anywhere from 3 to 18 months, BOTOX® may only last up to 6 months before needing a new injection, for instance. It is important that you discuss the expectations and risks associated with the Destination Lift with a member of our team.
Regardless of whether you receive dermal fillers or BOTOX® injections, the treatment is not a permanent solution for aging skin. The molecules in the injections will eventually become metabolized by the body, and follow-up appointments will be necessary in order to maintain a youthful appearance. As with many injection procedures, clients risk minimal bruising and swelling near the injection site, although these side effects should subside within the first week of treatment.
Overall, individuals who have wrinkles caused by aging skin and contracting muscles could benefit from a series of injectables that target both culprits, which results in fuller facial features and more radiant skin. The Destination Lift is the ideal way to look and feel younger without the discomfort and recovery associated with invasive surgery.
