FAQ

NEUROMODULATOR QUESTIONS

What is Dysport? What is Xeomin? How are they different?

Dysport and Xeomin are both used to treat and prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and deep facial furrows. By working beneath the surface, Dysport and Xeomin help reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes the skin to appear wrinkled or folded. 

Dysport is very similar to Xeomin - same price, same duration, but kicks in a little quicker.

When will I see results?

You will begin to notice changes after 36-48 hours, however full results can take up to 10-14 days.

How long do results last?

Results from Dysport and Xeomin are not permanent. Effects usually last about 3-4 months depending on dosing. The more units you get injected, the longer it will last.

How many treatments will I need?

Dysport and Xeomin will only need one single treatment to show results. However, results last about 3-4 months, therefore treatments can continue upon this timeline for as long as the patient desires.


Will I need time to recover?

Small red bumps are noticeable for about 20 minutes following injections but then quickly dissipate like nothing happened. Bruising is possible but not common, plan 7-10 days ahead of any events/vacations.

FILLER QUESTIONS

What is Filler?

The facial fillers used at LUXE Med Spa are made from hyaluronic acid. The use of fillers can eliminate wrinkles, plump and hydrate lips, replace soft-tissue volume loss, raise scar depressions, and volumize creases and folds of the face. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to such damage through facial injections.


How much does Filler cost?

Because everyone’s needs are different, and with such a wide variety of treatments involving filler, a personal consultation is the best way to establish cost. With that in mind, filler treatments start at $650. This cost not only reflects the price of the product, but also the skill, knowledge and expertise of the medical injector. We do not price match.


When will I see results?

Results are visible immediately after treatment. The healing process then begins which involves swelling for about 3-7 days depending on the amount injected, area injected, and how your body reacts to the procedure. The product then settles and you’ll enjoy your final results about 2-3 weeks after injections. Please give yourself a minimum of 2 weeks before any events or vacations in case of residual bruising and swelling.


How long do results last?

Longevity differs from person to person and from treatment to treatment. Because the product is being injected into the body, some bodies may metabolize the product faster than others. See below for average longevity based on treatment:

Cheek Filler: 9-18 months

Under Eye Filler: 6-18 months

Lip Filler: 6-12 months

Hand Filler: 9-18 months

Lower Face Filler: 9-18 months

Jawline Filler: 9-18 months

Chin Augmentation: 9-18 months

Nasolabial Fold (Smile/Laugh Lines) Filler: 6-12 months

Earlobe Filler: 9-18 months

Temple Filler: 6-12 months


How many treatments will I need?

Facial fillers are a temporary solution, and therefore to maintain results, treatments will need to be administered on a recurring basis (see longevity info above).


Will I need time to recover?

Bruising is possible, plan 2 weeks ahead of any events/vacations.

KYBELLA QUESTIONS

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is used to permanently diminish small pockets of fat on the body such as a double chin, bra bulges, inner thigh fat, and belly fat.

How does KYBELLA® work?

As explained on the KYBELLA® website, “The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.”


How much does KYBELLA® cost?

You will need at least 2-4 treatments of KYBELLA®, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for optimum results. Average amount used is 2-3 vials per treatment. Each vial costs $650.

When will I see results?

Noticeable results are visible in 60-90 days.

How long do results last?

“When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.”

- KYBELLA® website

How many treatments will I need?

“The number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.”

- KYBELLA® website

Will I need time to recover?

Bruising and swelling is common. Give yourself a minimum of 2-3 weeks before any events/vacations.

“After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.”
