Facelifts That Restore Youthful Appearances

What is a SoftLift? A SoftLift™ is a non-surgical panfacial treatment combining two popular injectable treatments, Botox Cosmetic and Dermal Filler injections. This treatment can help reduce wrinkles while restoring the loss of facial volume and definition that we eventually experience over time.

The Treatment

SoftLift™ non-surgical facelifts combine two distinct treatments for optimal results:

Botox® Cosmetic

This injectable formula relaxes targeted muscles. The cosmetic effects of Botox® reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. Botox® can also be used for a brow lift, sharpen the jawline, soften the dimpling effects on the chin, and to feminize the lower face by reducing the appearance of the masseter muscles.

Juvederm™

Juvederm™ is an injectable made from synthetic hyaluronic acid that perfectly mimics this naturally-occurring sugar in our bodies. The natural hyaluronic acid, fat, and collagen in our skin and tissues are responsible for volume, facial curves, and skin elasticity.

However, the aging process, combined with exposure to UV rays and pollution throughout our lives, slows down the production of hyaluronic acid. As a result, skin looks duller and more dehydrated. We also experience volume loss in our temples, tear troughs, cheeks, laugh lines, chin, and lips. This volume loss can eventually make faces look tired, angry, and sad.

But with a thorough understanding of the aging process, the use of Juvederm dermal fillers, and precise injections, we can replenish the lost hyaluronic acid and restore volume and support throughout the face.

Typically, we use:

  • Juvederm Volbella—to define lips, treat fine lines, and correct sunken tear troughs;
  • Juvederm Ultra XC—to treat finer lines, natural lip enhancement, jowls and chin area, temples, and mild laugh lines;
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC—to create fuller lip augmentation, soften deeper laugh lines, and restructure the jawline;
  • Juvederm Volift—to soften laugh lines, and add volume to the marionette lines and chin area;
  • Juvederm Voluma™—to provide support and add volume to the cheeks and facial contouring.

During a SoftLift™ treatment, the focus is not on treating one specific facial feature. SoftLift non-surgical facelift treatments correct several aging features in the upper, mid, and lower parts of the face. Dr. Tosoni provides her patients with a detailed consultation to determine the best way to address their features and goals before any injections are made.

With a SofLift facelift treatment, you can have a refreshed appearance without the need for surgery.
