Every holiday season, I’m asked about non-surgical options for quick, no downtime pre-party rejuvenation. Everyone knows about using Botox for forehead frown lines and Juvederm to camouflage nasolabial folds and plump the lips, but there are dozens of other, lesser known uses of these products that produce incredible results! Here are just some of those options, including how much they cost, and how long results will last.
Botox Brow Lift
A few units of Botox placed judiciously just above the natural arch of the eyebrows can help to relax the muscles that pull down the eyebrow. This allows the eyebrows to drift slightly higher, producing a Botox Brow Lift that really opens up the eyes. When your Botox kicks in at 4 – 7 days, you can expect to look more wide-eyed and fresh-faced. This treatment usually requires 6 units of Botox (3 units per side). The cost is $120 and results last up to 4 months.
Let your lovely, festive holiday earrings sit pretty once again! A very small amount of Juvedem injected around the earring hole can rejuvenate the earlobes, so you can say goodbye to sagging, thin, pulled earlobes. An amazing result can be achieved with as little as 0.2cc of Juvederm, and results last over a year. One syringe of Juvederm contains 1cc, or 1mL, of filler and is $750. Bonus: Since this treatment uses only 0.2cc of filler, you will have plenty leftover Juvederm to use elsewhere on the face, and an excuse to use it. We can decide optimal placement together.
Not all nose concerns are amenable to liquid, non-surgical Rhinoplasty using a combination of Botox and facial filler, like Juvederm, but if you are among the lucky (or unlucky, depending upon how you look at it) ones whose nose can be improved with non-surgical treatment, the results are dramatic, and so are the savings! The cost of the procedure is around $750-$1,000 and results last up to 2 years. Compare this with the total cost of surgical rhinoplasty, around $12,000 inclusive of operating room and anesthesia fees, not to mention the pain and downtime of surgery.
As we age, we lose volume in our lips and our cheeks. Well-done injectable cheek augmentation can take years off of your appearance. With Juvederm VOLUMA, you can now get injectable cheek augmentation that lasts 2 years! The volume required varies between 1 – 4 syringes. Juvederm Ultra Plus lasts for one year and costs $750 per syringe. Juvederm VOLUMA lasts 2 years and costs $1000 per syringe.
Botox Neck Lift
Stop feeling bad about your neck! The Botox Neck Lift, also called the “Nefertiti Neck Lift”, uses Botox to relax the Platysma muscle, which creates the horizontal banding in the neck. Results can be dramatic – in a good way. Cost ranges from $400 – $600 and lasts 4 – 5 months.
