Botox & Dysport


Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxins that help reduce wrinkles within days of the injection. They both work by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, allowing the muscle to relax and thus reducing and/or eliminating the wrinkles. The medication starts working within 2-5 days of injection and results usually last 3 months. Often times referred to as a lunchtime appointment, it usually only takes 15-30 minutes with the ability to return back to work immediately after!

The most commonly treated areas are in between the eyebrows, commonly known as the “11” lines, the horizontal forehead lines and the crows feet. But there are many other uses as well, see below for additional common areas as well as dosing.

Commonly used amounts per area:
“11” lines, in between the eyebrows15-25 units

Both Botox & Dysport are made from the same bacteria and have similar properties. However, Botox is known to be a little “stiff” and can give a more frozen look. Dysport tends to kick in a few days sooner and has a little “softer” or natural look to it. Both are great and effective medications. Some people prefer one over the other while many can’t really tell a difference between the two. Hillary always carries both and is happy to help you choose what is best for your desired results. Prices for them are the same: $9/unit 40+ units $10/unit 39 or less units




FILLER


Fillers differ from Botox and Dysport in that they focus on volumizing the skin, mimicking bone, fat and deep skin layers. The results are immediate and can last anywhere from 6-24 months, depending on the type of filler and where you place it.

Fillers come in pre-filled syringes, most being 1ml in quantity. They are sold usually by syringe and can vary how much one needs, depending on age, volume loss and desired result. Many fillers are made out of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body. It is considered very safe with few people having any allergic reactions with it.

On the occasion that someone has something done that they do not like the results, commonly seen with a groupon or seeing an inexperienced injector, the filler can actually be reversed! Hillary has helped numerous clients reverse their poor results from other providers, then redo the work to have a more natural, beautiful look.

Most clients biggest concern is looking “done” or “fake”. When too much filler or the inappropriate filler is used, this can occur. However, after listening to your concerns and understanding your desired results, Hillary mindfully chooses fillers that will best meet your needs.


Juvéderm/Restylane - $500/syringe

Juvéderm

Juvéderm has a nice thickness to it that makes it great for volumizing and is commonly used in the lips for luscious, full lips. It can also be used in the jawline, chin and for nasolabial folds. You can expect it to last 6+ months.

Restylane

Restylane is similar to Juvederm, but is slightly softer. It is also commonly used in the lips, nasolabial folds and is a go to for many injectors under the eyes. You can expect it to last 6+ months.



Vollure / Restylane Refyne / Restylane Defyne / Restylane Lyft - $600/syringe

Vollure

Vollure is a very soft filler used to treat superficial and fine lines. It can also be used in the lips to give a more hydrated look. Because it is so soft, it spreads easily and can be used virtually anywhere on the face. You can expect it to last 12+ months.

Restylane Refyne

Refyne is a beautiful soft filler similar to Vollure, with perhaps a little more volume to it. Due to newer technology it allows it to flex beautifully, creating a more natural result. Hillary loves to put this in thinner or aging lips as it adds some volume without looking “ducky” or fake. It also can be used to etch out any superficial or fine lines. You can expect it to last 12+ months.

Restylane Defyne

Defyne is similar to Juvederm or Restylane, but has a newer technology that allows it to flex with the tissue. It works well in nasolabial folds, lips, marionette lines and to etch out any deeper creases. You can expect it to last 12+ months.

Restylane Lyft

Lyft is a harder filler that lifts, defines and restores volume to the cheeks. It also works great for chin augmentation, non surgical nose jobs and for jawline contouring. You can expect it to last 18-24 months.



Radiesse-$650



Voluma-$750

Radiesse

This unique filler comes in a 1.5ml prefilled syringe as opposed to virtually all the other ones that come in 1ml syringes. Unlike it’s hyaluronic acid counter parts, this filler stimulates collagen production. It is great for cheeks, jawline, temporal hollows and chin augmentation. You can expect it to last 6-12+ months depending on how your body responds to it.

Voluma

Voluma is similar to Restylane Lyft, in that it is perfect for cheeks, jawline, chin and nose augmentation. However, it tends to maybe have a softer look and less lifting capability. It also should last 18-24 months.



Kybella




Kybella is a product which stands in a class on its own. It contains deoxycholic acid which naturally occurs in the body. It is injected into the skin in an area where there are numerous fat cells, most commonly underneath the chin, in the jowls or for the “bra fat bulge”.


It causes the fat cells to die, giving you permanent fat reduction in the injected area. Although it comes in vials, most treatments require at least 2 vials. As such, it is sold per treatment which is $950 (which includes 2 vials).


*Expectation for duration of a product depends on many factors such as how quickly your body breaks it down, where it is placed (lips move a lot and tend to break filler down more quickly), and how much you work out.


**Please note that the descriptions above are based off Hillary’s personal experience. Each injector may have a different opinion and description of the products. However, in an attempt to educate you and help you understand the different properties of the various products, Hillary has described them as such.
