 JUVÉDERM is one of the most effective hyaluronic acid fillers available. It benefits your skin in a couple of different ways. First, hyaluronic acid attracts moisture in your skin. This instantly plumps and fills out sunken areas, fine lines, and wrinkles, giving you naturally smoother-looking and feeling skin.  Next, hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen production, so not only do you get an instant lift, JUVÉDERM goes a step further and actually helps tighten your skin from deep within. This makes your JUVÉDERM results last for a long time.

Candidate: Ideal for fine lines or softening of more prominent lines. 

As you get older, connective tissue in your skin starts breaking down. These tissues, known as collagen and elastin, are known for making your skin tight and supple. Plus, you start losing that cushioning layer of fat that separates muscles from skin. Between losing connective tissues and fat, wrinkles start developing.

Botox is made of very small amounts of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum in a purified and refined form. When injected, Botox interrupts signals that force muscle contractions. This allows facial muscles to fully relax, which ultimately helps your skin smooth out.  Xeomin is analog to Botox  – Consult will determine the best choice.

Client Preparation: Zero Use of NSAIDS & Fish Oil for 3 Days before and after

Kybella – $1200 per RX

Appointment Interval:  1x Per Month – Most clients 2-4 visits – Safely up to 6 visits.

Injection sites: 

  • Under Chin is most common
  • Upper Arms
  • Bra Line
  • Buttocks

Kybella’s main ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This substance, which is found naturally in your body, is responsible for breaking down and absorbing fat. When injected the deoxycholic acid immediately starts destroying fat cell deposits.  Once they’re broken down, the cells can’t accumulate fat any longer. Results are permanent, so as long as you don’t gain weight in the future, your outcome can last a lifetime, and you won’t need to have Kybella injections again in the future.

Client Preparation: Zero Use of NSAIDS & Fish Oil for 3 Days before and after
