Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin vs. Jeuveau

Which Botox is the best?

There is only one Botox but there are other similar neurotoxins on the market called Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau.

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

Botox was FDA approved in 2002 and was the first neurotoxin used for cosmetic purposes. Botox Cosmetic treats moderate to severe lines on the forehead and crows’ feet.
Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It was FDA approved in 2009 in the United States. Dysport may act quicker in some patients than Botox in seeing results. The biggest difference between Botox and Dysport is the quantity of units needed due to the potency of Dysport. Dysport requires 2-3 units to 1 unit of Botox so if an area requires 25 units of Botox, you may need 50 plus units of Dysport. While Dysport maybe cheaper than Botox, the quantity of units of Dysport physicians need to use is more than Botox and thus there is not a big difference in price. In addition, Dysport has been shown to drift more than Botox causing relaxation of neighboring muscles. Unlike other toxins, Dysport contains cow milk protein and therefore cannot be used for those that are allergic to milk.

What is the difference between Botox and Xeomin?

XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults for a short period of time (temporary). FDA approved in 2011 in the United States. The cost of Xeomin is about the same as Botox and the number of units needed for treatment is the same as Botox. Xeomin is said to have a slower onset at day 4 vs Botox is 72 hours. It is a pure form of botulinum toxin and can be used for patients with resistance build up to other toxins.

What is the difference between Botox and Jeuveau?

Jeuveau™ is the newest neurotoxin also know in the market as Newtox. The prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs injection is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). FDA approved in 2019. Jeuveau can cost less than Botox but with Botox running promotions, they typically are similar in price. While Botox is approved for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments such aseyelid spasms, severe underarm sweating, migraines, overactive bladder, pediatric upper limb spasticity, and relaxing wrinkles, Jeuveau is only approved for cosmetic purposes. Since Botox has been on the market the longest, there are more clinical safety studies than Jeuveau.

Which neurotoxin is right for you?

It is best to discuss all your options with a physician during your consultation.

 A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that improves the tone, texture, clarity and appearance of your skin.

Typically done on the face, chest and back areas, the treatment removes the dull layer of surface skin cells to reveal fresh and radiant skin.

It reduces age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and softens fine lines and wrinkles, and can also address acne and reduce scarring.

Over 1.38 million chemical peel treatments were performed in 2018.

One popular chemical peel, the VI Peel is virtually pain free, safe for all skin types, and is available at our medical spa.

Dermal Fillers: Types of Fillers and Tips To Follow Before Your Treatment:

Whether you want to look years younger or enhance your features, a dermal filler treatment is a great option to achieve your desired look without surgery.

In fact, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that dermal filler treatments were a runner-up for the most popular non-surgical procedures last year, right after Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin).

Most areas of the face can be treated with Dermal fillers.

dermal filler treatment areas

There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market to choose from:

1. Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma, Perlane, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne Boletero Balance.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin that helps it stay hydrated and plump.

These temporary dermal fillers are FDA approved for treatment on the nasolabial folds (smile lines), lips, vertical lip lines, marionette lines and cheek areas.

HA fillers last between 6 months to 2 years before they are absorbed by the body naturally.

2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Radiesse

This filler is FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, cheeks and other facial contours.

CaHA is also a naturally occurring substance found in the body, specifically in our bones.

These fillers typically last longer than HA fillers, about 12 months.

3. Poly-L-lactic Acid

Sculptra

This FDA approved filler consists of a biodegradable synthetic substance.

Sculptra stimulates collagen and helps your skin rebuild it naturally.
Sculptra lasts up to 2 years and is used to fill in laugh lines, plump up thin lips, and treat deep nasolabial folds.

4. Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA)

Bellafill

Bellafil is a semi-permanent FDA approved dermal filler made of a synthetic, biocompatible substance.

This filler lasts up to 5 years and can be used for deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, increase volume in the lips and to fill out pitted acne scars.

Type of dermal fillers

How do you select the right dermal filler? It’s best to schedule a consultation with a reputable Board Certified Doctor or Registered Nurse.

Tips To Follow Before & After Your Dermal Filler Treatment

Before your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

 

● Blood thinners and pain relievers (Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, etc.)
● Supplements (St. John’s Wort, Gingko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E)
● Any type of hair-removal process on the treatment area (waxing, bleaching, tweezing, etc.) at least 3 days before your treatment
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours before your treatment

 

If you suffer from or have a history of cold sores, let your doctor know before your procedure as you should be aware that any needle punctures could contribute to a risk of another breakout or eruption of cold sores, reactivating the herpes virus.

 

If this concerns you, your doctor can prescribe antiviral medication to avoid or clear up any breakouts before your treatment.

 

Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or allergic to any ingredients.

 

You should arrive at the office with a clean, makeup-free face.

Following Your Dermal Filler Procedure

After your dermal treatment, you should avoid:

● Wearing makeup for at least 12 hours
● Using skincare products for at least 24 hours
● Strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours
● Alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours
● Extensive sun, heat or UV exposure for at least 24 hours
● Extremely cold or hot temperatures for at least 48 hours
● Touching or massaging the treated area
● Smoking and/or smoke exposure
● Any dental procedures for at least 2 weeks

 

To minimize swelling and bruising, apply ice on the treated area and take Arnica or Bromelain (eating fresh pineapple may help as well).

 

Tell your doctor if you are planning any laser treatments, chemical peels, or other procedures after treatment, or if you are using Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or other blood thinners as this may increase bleeding or bruising on the treated area.

 

If you have a big event coming up, it is recommended that you plan your treatment at least 3 weeks in advance for optimal healing and results.

Botox Party: The New Girls Night Out

Botox Parties Bucks County

Hey Girl!

If you’re on the hook to plan the next girls night out but seem to be out of ideas, here’s one for you – throw a Botox Party!

That’s right you can inject fun and filler into one fabulous night out with your girlfriends.

Botox parties are being offered more and more at medical offices, medical spas, and salons.

What are Botox parties?

A Botox party is an event for a group of five or more friends that schedule Botox procedures to be done at the same time in a medical facility while enjoying each other’s company.

Where to have a Botox Party?

We strongly recommend a medical setting to ensure a sterile and safe environment.

Typically refreshments are provided to you and your friends while you hang out, relax, and get your Botox on.

Botox Parties at Healthy Solutions Medspa:

As the host of a Botox party at Healthy Solutions Med Spa, you are eligible for a significant discount or even a complimentary Botox treatment, depending on the size of your party.

All attendees receive a discounted price not offered with a regular Botox treatment booking.

At Healthy Solutions Med Spa, Botox treatments are done by Dr. Michael Luciano or a Registered Nurse.

The process involves tiny Botox injections that work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles – this reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form around the eyes and forehead.

Botox injections rapidly lessen the look of lines and wrinkles in those areas creating a younger looking you. Botox is safe, long lasting and very affordable.

A single Botox treatment is usually done in about 20 minutes, leaving you plenty of time to chat with your girlfriends.

Within days, you will see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows and eyes. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days.

Patients can expect visible results to last approximately three to four months – so you can schedule your Botox parties seasonally.

If you are interested in hosting a Botox party, contact us today at Read reviews about the office you are considering and confirm that Botox treatments are done by an aesthetic Doctor or Registered Nurse.

Cheers to a fun girls night out and a better looking you!

When It Comes To Natural Beauty, Millennials Want Their Fill

Lip filler bucks county pa

Perusing through their Instagram account, Millennials will notice everyone from celebrities to their favorite influencers look picture perfect: a flawless complexion, plump cheeks, and supple lips – without a wrinkle in sight.

Much how Millennials rely on filters to look their best in daily selfies, Dermal fillers, Botox, lip filler & injectables can help them achieve the same thing in real life.

In their search for perfection, Millennials look to dermal filler treatments to enhance their appearance with non-invasive, non-permanent procedures.

When it comes to beauty augmentations, Millennials between the ages of 22 to 37 years-old want their fill. But, they still want to look natural and not like someone else, or worse, fake!

Thanks to the advanced technology, today’s cosmetic surgery trends have shifted from invasive procedures that significantly change the structure of your face to non-surgical natural-looking enhancements that are now considered self-care for Millenials.

The 2018 American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) Annual Survey Revealed that “there is more emphasis on early care or pre-juvenation in the ’20s and ’30s…and in 2018, 72 percent of facial plastic surgeons saw an increase in injectables in patients under age 30.”

Dermal fillers, Botox and lip fillers create a younger, smoother and healthier appearance by adding volume to certain areas of the face: lips and cheeks being most common.

Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by smoothing out lines around the nose and mouth. They augment and restore volume to create a more plump, youthful looking you.

Which Injectable or Lip Filler Do Millenials Prefer?

With so many Dermal filler and lip filler products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you. Let’s go through the FDA approved products offered at Healthy Solutions Med Spa. But, before we do, it’s important to mention that anyone who is considering getting fillers or Botox  done should always get a consultation with a Board Certified Physician or Nurse Injector who can provide the right clinical recommendation.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA:

The sag is a drag! Unfortunately, as you age your cheeks lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area and correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. This product is popular with Millenials who are looking to add contour to their cheeks and a subtle lift to enhance their profile.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Laughing has been known to add years to your life. It can also add a few extra lines to your face, along with aging. Millennials often opt for this dermal filler at the earliest development of lines around the mouth.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE:

Smooths moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles for up to 18 months with optimal treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA & JUVÉDERM ULTRA:

Kylie Jenner launched an entire cosmetic empire based on her lips. While appearing on the cover of Forbes magazine might not be in your immediate future, a little more volume to your pout is.

If for the most part you are satisfied with your natural volume but want more lush to those lips, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA can help you achieve a subtle volume increase with just one lip filler injection.

JUVEDERM ULTRA is a better lip filler choice for someone with thinner lips and who would like a more significant increase in volume.

BOTOX

The magic eraser! It removes wrinkles from the forehead and around the eyes. Enough said.

How Millennials Choose Their Lip Filler, Botox, or Cheek Enhancement Provider?

When Millennials decide they want to enhance their appearance with Botox and fillers, they know it’s important to go to a provider that offers reputable products and provides great looking results, and they do their research!

  • Only go to a board-certified physician or registered nurse; both available to perform Dermal filler, JUVEDERM and lip augmentation treatments at Healthy Solutions Med Spa.
  • Read the reviews of the practice – on their Website, Facebook, Yelp and Google page.
  • Check out before and after photos on their site or Instagram profile.
  • Check out Botox.com or Juvederm.com for a list of providers who offer reputable products that are deemed gold standard in the industry.
  • Beware of providers that state they offer reputable products but are NOT listed on the find a provider list, as they may be selling them “Fau-tox” not BOTOX and JUVEDERM.
  • Avoid Groupons! Spend money on a quality provider that will get you the best results with the best products. These providers could be using expired or highly diluted products. Don’t skimp on products for your face.

Do Millennials Find Dermal Fillers Painful?

No one is ever thrilled about having a needle injected into their face, but much like my hair on a humid day, it looks a lot scarier than it is. Before receiving filler injections, the medical provider or nurse will numb the area making any discomfort more tolerable. And when all else fails, stay focused on the end game – you’re gonna look, G-O-R-GEOUS girl!

Dermal fillers and lip fillers are ideal beauty enhancements.

How Much Are Dermal Fillers or Lip Fillers?

They are relatively inexpensive at a starting price of $400, depending on the filler you choose and the amount of syringes.

They typically last anywhere from 9 to 12 months and can be reversed if you are not satisfied with the outcome by injecting Hyloranadase.

But reverse treatments are rare, as most patients are incredibly pleased with their enhanced appearance – so you can rid yourself of the fear of looking like you were attacked by a beehive, as each injection is subtle. You will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance, but it takes multiple syringes to achieve an enormous pout or chipmunk cheeks.

If you are looking to enhance your appearance with Botox or Lip fillers and you live in or near Bucks County, PA near Doylestown, Newtown, or Warrington then give us a call (267) 388-4692 to get started on your path to a more beautiful and youthful looking you.

How Botox & Fillers Can Help You Look Your Best During Summer Weddings

 

There’s nothing more beautiful than a warm summer wedding; weddings are one of the only times that our families and friends get to take time out of their busy lives to focus on celebrating one another.

Everyone wants stunning wedding photographs that they can look back on for decades to come, but are you ready for your close-up?

For most people, the months of July and August bring a packed calendar full of celebrations, but if you are feeling self-conscious about wrinkles and fine lines, you might prefer to curl up under a blanket than face the day.

You deserve to enjoy your summer events with pride; if you’ve been dreading going to an event this summer, injectable fillers can help you look your best before the big event.

Botox and injectable fillers can restore your confidence before a summer wedding.

If you are considering getting Botox for wrinkles on your forehead or fill in your deep lines around your mouth with fillers before an event this summer, you’re certainly not alone.

Over 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed last year, and that number is set to keep growing as more and more Americans reclaim their youthful skin.

Whether you’re part of the bridal party, the mother of the bride or even the one walking down the aisle and saying “I do,” you want event photographers to capture your true self.

You’ll look back on these memories for the rest of your life, isn’t your skin worth investing it?

The reason why Botox and fillers have become so popular and so ingrained in our culture is because they work.

Many people are concerned about deep wrinkles in the facial area, including laugh lines, wrinkles around the eyes and forehead creases.

Botox can help to rectify these issues in as little as a 30-minute appointment.

Injectable fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, and Volbella can also help with more than wrinkles; injections can help to plump up lips and restore volume in the cheeks giving the appearance of a younger and fuller face.

This summer, you deserve to focus on your friends and family, not fine lines and wrinkles.

Take back the real you with Botox or injectable fillers today!

If you are searching for Botox, Fillers, laser hair removal in Doylestown, PA or want to visit our med spa in Ivyland, PA, we encourage you to contact our friendly staff here at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano to schedule a complimentary consultation.

What Dads Really Want on Father’s Day is Botox and Coolsculpting!

At the end of every May, or perhaps early June, it’s likely that you ask yourself the same question:

What am I going to give my Dad (or the Dad in your life) for Father’s Day?

Well, if you’re all out of ideas this year (or the thought of purchasing another necktie or dress shirt that sounds like a drag) you can help him transform his body by treating him to a non-invasive cosmetic procedure!

The amount of men getting cosmetic work done is on the rise!

It’s true that more men are opting for non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as CoolSculpting® and Botox® to help them look and feel their best. Now both women and men are spending more time working on their appearances!

Not convinced? Consider this!

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 men underwent Botox® injections in 2014, a 337% increase since 2000! What’s more, 90,000 received fillers, which is an 86% increase since 2000! And, while CoolSculpting® is a relatively new procedure, more men have been turning to this procedure to help them eliminate those stubborn fat areas that will not go away—even after they make a continuous effort to diet and exercise!

What should that special Dad in your life expect from his CoolSculpting® treatment at our med spa in Bucks County?

Botox®, which is injected directly into muscles, will help to eliminate years off his face and smooth his skin.

Dads who choose this procedure should expect to be in and out of our office in less than an hour, experience minimal pain, and see results in just a few days.

Dads who want to freeze away any stubborn fat deposits with CoolSculpting® should expect to be at our office for a little over an hour (or more if they are doing multiples areas at once.)

Dads should expect little or no pain, and they can even go about their day once the procedure is complete.

Results can be seen in as quickly as few weeks, with the most dramatic seen after 1-3 months.

If the thought of treating your Dad, or that special Dad in your life, to either Botox® or a CoolSculpting® treatment at our med spa in Bucks County, PA sounds enticing, we encourage you to call us at 267-388-4692, or schedule an appointment with us online!
