Until scientists develop a weapon potent enough to destroy gravity, wrinkles and falling coconuts will continue to serve as humbling reminders of our delicate mortality. Be forever young with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $749 for a nonsurgical lower eyelid lift for both eyes (up to a $2,000 value)
- $1,199 for upper eyelid lift surgery for both eyes (a $2,995 value)
During the nonsurgical option, doctors fight fine lines, dark circles, and hollows under the eyes by injecting a dermal filler into sunken spots, then resurfacing the skin with a fractional laser. A topical anesthetic keeps discomfort at bay, though pinkness may last 7–10 days.
The surgical option begins with a consultation, after which the doctor numbs the skin with a local anesthetic and makes small incisions across the natural crease in the upper lids. Through these slits, he or she removes fat deposits and excess tissue, thereby minimizing the appearance of bags and puffiness. The entire procedure takes two to three hours. Stitches come out after about a week and bruising typically lasts about 7–10 days.
Linage Dermatology Institute
At Linage Dermatology Institute, a crack team of dermatologists, medical aestheticians, and plastic surgeons work hard to deliver revamped bodies and glowing complexions. Among the aesthetic specialists is plastic surgeon Dr. Genevieve MacDonald, who brings beauty to the forefront with procedures such as liposuction and eyelid lifts. "I enjoy doing both [facial and body cosmetic surgery] because I appreciate how each procedure improves appearance and one's self-esteem," she says on her website. In addition to this enthusiasm, Dr. MacDonald treats every patient with an honest personality and medical skills honed at Johns Hopkins University.
Happy to have Dr. MacDonald among their ranks, the staff at Linage Dermatology also specializes in laser treatments that zap fine lines and pigmented blemishes, leaving skin looking younger and patients feeling more confident. In an effort to help people maintain renewed faces or pet hairless cats, the institute touts its own line of skincare products called Linage LINQ, a medical-grade line of cleansers, toners, and moisturizers.
