We offer several services in our Med Spa area, including injectables, laser treatments, mole removal, skin rejuvenation packages as well as other specialty services!
BoTox is an extremely dilute form of botulinum toxin which when injected into the muscle weakens but does not paralyze them. Safe and efficacious, BoTox is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States. Over 5.6 million treatments were given in 2011. To remove or reduce wrinkles that form between your brows, on your forehead, or around your eyes when you laugh, smile, or frown, Botox Cosmetic can work like magic. One ten minute treatment – a few tiny injections – will relax the muscles that cause those lines to form and keep them relaxed for up to four months. At Destinations Medical Spa, we don’t over treat you. You’ll still look like you…only better!
Restylane is cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal derived hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and provides volume and fullness to the skin. No allergy test is required for administration of Restylane. The drug is FDA approved for treatment of facial wrinkles. It is also an excellent choice for restoring youthful fullness to the lips. For patient comfort, Restylane is usually administered following a nerve block or local anesthetic. Some redness and swelling should be expected for 2 days after the procedure. Results last up to 6 months.
As we age, our faces not only wrinkle, but actually lose volume, resulting in unattractive hollows and loose skin, especially in the cheek, eye, and temple areas. For those who don’t want the expense, pain, or downtime of a facelift, Sculptra Aesthetic offers an alternative.
Sculptra is a synthetic material called Poly-L-Lactic Acid which has been used in sutures for decades and in facial injection treatments since 1999 in over 30 countries. Poly-L-Lactic Acid stimulates the body to produce collagen and thus to revolumnize the face. Sculptra injections take about 30 minutes and are virtually painless. Patients treated with this nonsurgical facelift can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure. On average, 3 injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the amount of Sculptra used per session will vary from person to person. The good news is that once full correction is attained, the result can last from 2 to 5 years. Sculptra can also be combined with Botox and Restylane for a refreshed, revitalized look. Contact a Destinations representative to see if this new procedure is for you.
Voluma is the newest filler from the Allergan family. It is a smooth hyaluronic acid filler which can last up to 24 months. Voluma is FDA approved for restoration of volume loss in the cheek and midface areas. As we age, mid-face volume loss flattens the cheek, reducing support for the eye and lessening contrast with the concavity of the lower face. With optimal correction with Voluma, even areas of the face distant from the injection site demonstrate lift, including the nasolabial folds, mouth corners, and jawline. In clinical studies, 67% of patients describe lasting response to Voluma at 2 years. Voluma is a brilliant new weapon in the fight against aging.

- Photo Genesis IPL – Complexion Blending and Brightening
At Destinations, we use the state of the art Cutera intense pulsed light system (IPL) to erase superficial skin damage without disrupting the skin surface. We have the recently introduced Limelight handpiece which is capable of three different programs: one to erase fine veins and generalized redness, another to eliminate brown spots, and a third that can tackle BOTH problems. Photo Genesis can treat just about any area of the body safely, comfortably, and effectively — without the need for messy gels or numbing creams.
- Laser Genesis – Wrinkle Reduction
By heating the dermis on a deeper level than Photo Genesis, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. As new collagen builds up, stubborn wrinkles around the mouth, on the cheeks, and around the eyes start to soften. Diffuse redness (rosacea) also diminishes as Laser Genesis closes the dilated capillaries responsible for this condition. Laser Genesis can also improve the appearance of scars, including those caused by acne. The treatment feels relaxing and therapeutic and requires no topical anesthetics, The Cutera LaserGenesis uses the 1064 wavelength making the treatment suitable for people of all colors including those with tanned skin.
- Titan – Skin Tightening
Titan uses infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin surface. For areas of the body starting to show skin laxity such as the cheeks, jaws, neck, arms, and abdomen, Titan produces an immediate increase in skin tone and your results will continue to improve over several months!. Diminish sagging jowls and “turkey necks” without the pain of other treatments such as Thermage. As you can see from our before and after pictures, Titan can produce results once only obtained by dermal fillers or facelift.
- 3D Skin Rejuvination: the nonsurgical facelift
The most powerful combination of light and laser therapy addresses all of the most common conditions of aging: age spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and lax and sagging skin. By combining Photo Genesis, Laser Genesis, and Titan, your skin will be treated at the superficial as well as the deeper layers. We may not be able to stop the passage of time, but with 3D Skin Rejuvenation, you will look as if you have! Treatments typically occur once every four weeks and are customized to your individual needs.
- Laser Hair Removal
We use the Cutera Cool Glide laser to remove unwanted hair on skin of ALL colors – even tanned skin! Unlike other lasers, the Cool Glide can treat the fine hair on a woman’s upper lip as well as the coarse hair on a man’s back. It is also one of the most comfortable lasers on the market today. Because hair is only affected by the laser during its growth cycle, permanent hair reduction requires multiple treatment sessions. The number of treatments and interval between treatments varies with the specific area of the body and with your individual hair texture.
- Vein Therapy
Tired of those tiny red spider veins or those deeper blue reticular veins on your face or legs? The Cool Glide 1064 laser is the right wavelength to eliminate them — on people of any color!
The newest form of microdermabrasion, vibrabrasion gently removes the outer layer of skin. It reduces fine lines, pore size, and acne scars, leaving you with brilliant, glowing skin. The treatment itself is painless and relaxing. Vibrabrasion can be used by itself in a treatment series to freshen the skin or can be combined with other services such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and IPL therapy to give better results than either modality alone. Vibrabrasion can also be used to smooth rough, dry skin on the elbows, feet, or heels and to increase the penetration through the skin of cosmoceuticals to assist in many types of skin rejuvenation.
Cosmelan is an incredibly safe and effective treatment for actinic keratosis caused by long term sun exposure and natural aging. It also effectively treats disorders characterized by excessive dark pigment production such as melasma. Because it blocks the melanin creation process, it is invaluable for people of darker color and is far safer than an IPL treatment for clients with these skin types. Cosmelan is an effective acne treatment as well. The first dose must be administered by a medical professional and is then followed by daily in-home treatments.
- Prescription Retin A
Tretinoin (Retin-A, Avita, Renova) Tretinoin is the only topical medication that has been proven to improve wrinkles. It is a derivative of Vitamin A and is the treatment of choice for comedonal acne, or whiteheads and blackheads. It works by increasing skin cell turnover promoting the extrusion of the plugged material in the follicle. It also prevents the formation of new comedones.
- Hydroquinone (HQ) and HQ Compound
Hydroquinone is the only true bleaching agent for skin on the market today. Hydroquinone is a skin-bleaching agent that is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, chloasma (also known as melasma), age spots, and acne scars. Lightening freckles, age spots, and other skin discolorations associated with pregnancy, skin trauma, birth control pills, or hormone replacement therapy.

- Latisse® Eyelash Treatment

Skin Rejuvenation Packages
- Lighten and Brighten
To revitalize and clear the skin of redness, sun damage, brown age spots, and uneven skin tone, we recommend coupling vibradermabrasion with PhotoGenesis. By removing the dead surface cells with Vibrabrasion, the intense pulse light is able to penetrate more deeply and effectively. Best results are seen with a series of five treatments every three weeks.
Are you concerned about early fine wrinkles as well as pigment problems? Refresh is the package for you. While PhotoGenesis evens your skin’s color, LaserGenesis works on a deeper level to rebuild collagen. We prime the skin with a Vibrabrasion, then alternate LaserGenesis with PhotoGenesis every three weeks for a series of five treatments. A final Vibrabrasion before the last LaserGenesis will leave you with smooth, youthful, even textured skin.
Spent too much time in the sun? Concerned about deeper lines and wrinkles? The Revive package offers advanced therapy to correct rough texture, blotchy skin tone, and persistent wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. To rebuild your collagen, we will treat you 5 times with LaserGenesis, each treatment three weeks apart. For the first three treatment sessions, we will also treat your skin with PhotoGenesis and Vibrabrasion. At the end of 15 weeks, your skin will be positively glowing and radiant.
