How Can I Get Rid of My Double Chin without Surgery?

Do you have a double chin that won’t respond to your diet and exercise efforts?

Then it may be time to introduce yourself to FDA-approved Kybella injections. This non-surgical treatment is one of the best ways to get rid of a double chin – no liposuction or stitches required.

Take a look at how Kybella can get rid of your double chin without surgery, as well as how to make your exciting results last!

Kybella Injections: Get Rid of that Double Chin for Good!

Kybella is an excellent solution for candidates who have excess submental tissue (under chin fat) that won’t respond to diet and exercise. This non-surgical treatment uses deoxycholic acid to effectively “eat away” at fat cells clustered underneath the chin, all while leaving surrounding healthy tissue untouched. Once damaged, the fat cells shrink in size, causing a noticeable reduction to the double chin.

It typically takes about two Kybella injections for patients to see their ideal results. There’s no downtime involved with Kybella treatments, making it a highly desirable alternative for patients with double chins who want to avoid the expense […]

How Much Does Botox Cost?

You’ve heard the hype. You’ve seen your friends try it out for themselves. And now you’re finally ready to make that leap:

You’re ready to schedule your first Botox treatment.

Whether you’re already planning out your budget or you’re just curious about what you’ll end up spending, take a look at our informative primer on how much Botox costs.

4 Factors That May Influence Your Botox Costs

1. The unit price of Botox.

At the moment, the per unit price of Botox is around $12. While this may change over the coming months, it’s a good place to start if you want to price out your Botox injection.

2. Units needed to achieve your desired results.

Most people need anywhere from 20 to 60 Botox units to achieve their desired results, meaning your costs could be between $240 to $720 ($12 per unit x 20 to 60 units). 

That’s a pretty big range, especially if you’re not sure how many units you need to treat your specific skin issues. While we recommend a Botox consultation to find […]

What is Micro-Botox?

If you think that Botox injections are just for facial wrinkles and lines, it’s time to rediscover the anti-aging powers of this injection; more specifically, it’s time to discover Micro-Botox!

This innovative anti-aging treatment is brand-new to the States, yet it already promises to be an extremely popular choice with clients who want superior skin rejuvenation without the “frozen” look.

Let’s take a closer look at Micro-Botox and what you can expect from your treatment.

What is Micro-Botox?

Micro-Botox refers to a treatment that combines the anti-aging powers of Botox with skin-hydrating serums. These elements are mixed together to create a concoction that’s then injected into the surface areas of the skin. This is different from traditional Botox treatments, which are injected directly into the facial muscle in order to paralyze it. As Micro-Botox only penetrates the top dermis layer, this means patients won’t have to be scared of that tell-tale frozen look that often accompanies improperly injected Botox.

Why Should I Get It?

Micro-Botox is designed to help fade wrinkles, lines, and even help with acne scars – all within the top layer of the dermis. Micro-Botox can be applied to the […]

What Signs of Aging Do Botox Injections Target?

Interested in learning more about anti-aging injections – but not sure which one is right for you?

It’s no wonder: Lately, it seems as though there are more anti-aging injections available than ever before. From dermal fillers to Botox, there’s a treatment for almost every type of aging symptom out there. The only problem is, how do you know which injection treats your specific aging symptoms?

More specifically, what signs of aging do Botox injections target? VIEW OUR GALLERY

Botox is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that uses its active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A – to smooth away the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. The botulinum toxin (sounds scary, but it’s perfectly safe!) blocks the nerve signals that are sent by the brain to the corresponding muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the muscles are tricked into remaining relatively motionless.

As a result, the skin above the muscle area becomes much more relaxed, which helps alleviate the appearance of deep lines caused by brow furrowing, squinting, and more.

Botox is perhaps one of the most popular anti-aging injections, and for good reason: it has an almost-immediate effect on […]

Will My Botox Results Look Natural?

By now, you probably know that Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injectables on the market today. It’s no wonder – even when it was first introduced in the late 90s, Botox’s ability to smooth away the appearance of deep furrow lines on the forehead and around the eyes took the world by storm.

But with its rising popularity came another observation: When improperly used, Botox could lead to an unnatural, “frozen” appearance. From reality television to celebrity gossip magazines, it became all-too-easy to spot who went a bit too overboard with Botox injections. VIEW OUR GALLERY

Perhaps that’s why so many people are a bit nervous about their first Botox treatment. They want to harness the injectable’s ability to take years off of their appearance, but they don’t want to look “obvious” about it. Perhaps that’s why the most popular question about Botox tends to be: “Will my Botox results look natural?”

The answer largely depends on the person who is delivering the injection. Quite frankly, an inexperienced injectionist may end up injecting too much Botox, which means you may end up looking unnaturally frozen. That’s why it’s always recommended […]

Botox vs. Dysport: Is There a Difference?

With so many anti-wrinkle injections available on the market today, it can be difficult to identify what precise treatment will help you achieve that smooth, younger-looking appearance you want. Two main options – Botox and Dysport – use safe and effective neurotoxins to temporarily interrupt nerve signaling between the brain and facial muscles. This effectively stops muscles from contracting, which helps relieve deep-set wrinkles between the eyebrows (furrows) and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

Given that both injectables result in the same outcome, are there any major differences between the two? What should you keep in mind when choosing one or the other for your next anti-wrinkle treatment?

  • Results: Some studies have shown that Dysport injections can produce results earlier than Botox. However, it’s worth noting that this difference is just a matter of days; most patients can see final results from Botox within one to two weeks. Some patients report seeing results last longer with Dysport as opposed to Botox.

 

  • Body Response: Although Botox and Dysport contain the same neurotoxin as an active ingredient, your body may respond differently to a particular injectable. It can be a learning process, so don’t be afraid to request another anti-wrinkle injectable if you weren’t happy with your […]
