There is a wide range of cost for treatment depending on how many areas are treated and the number of units needed for an effective treatment. The number of units needed is determined by the presence of resting rhytids (wrinkles that are there without you making any expression), your anatomy (larger foreheads need larger doses), and the strength of the muscles being treated. It’s important to get the correct dose for the best results with the longest duration possible. On average the cost for treating the forehead and between the eyebrows ranges from $300-$450.
The most common treatment is BOTOX to relax the muscle around the eye to smooth crow's feet. Other treatments are dermal filler, microneedling, and laser. A topical retinol or eye cream helps hydrate the skin to minimize the appearance of crow's feet.
Well that depends on what is making you look older! Volume loss? Fine lines and wrinkles? Dull, dry skin? We recommend BOTOX quarterly, deep exfoliation with Hydrafacial monthly, and medical-grade skin care daily as the base foundation for looking younger.
The short answer for many people is cheek filler. The medial cheek fat pad is a huge support structure in the face. Replace lost volume there first and it will reshape your face and make you look younger. The best answer is to be consistent and use multiple modalities. Use medical-grade skin care every day, get a monthly facial with deep exfoliation every month, get BOTOX every three months, a biostimulator like Sculptra or Radiesse once a year, and add in hyaluronic acid gel filler to spot treat specific areas of volume loss like cheeks and lips. Get PDO threads every two years. Add in laser treatments, chemical peels, and microneedling as recommended.
Neither is necessarily better. It depends on what area is being treated and why. Different fillers do different things. Some give more lift, some more structure, some more softness. Some have more ability to mimic bone while others have more motion with expression. The most important thing is that your injector chooses the right product for the right treatment for the right person.
This depends on what you are treating. Both types of treatments can tighten, lift and smooth. Filler does it by replacing lost volume and reshaping. BOTOX and other injectable neurotoxins do it by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Are you treating volume loss or just trying to calm down a lot of movement? Most people need both.
On average, BOTOX takes 7-10 days to kick in. Xeomin 5 days, Dysport 3 days. So you may or may or may not see results. You may also bruise. It’s best to get treatment at least two weeks ahead of time but I recommend one month before an event. That’s the sweet spot of a tox treatment!
