Through our excellent cosmetic treatments and recommendations, we hope you will see a difference and improvement in your desired results.
Our Xeomin® product has the incobotulinumtoxinA “Botox®” drug for your injectable treatment, which is a prescription medicine from Merz Pharmaceutical Company that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Botox® may also be used but it is made by another pharmaceutical company, Allergan Pharmaceutical Company.
For dermal fillers we use the Belotero Balance®, which is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth). It is also made and manufactured by Merz Pharmaceutical Company
We also have other cosmetic and facial esthetic products that will be available in the near future.
Please note that unit pricing may vary by need and season. The amount of units needed to complete the treatment session varies based on the area being treated.

If you do wish to spread out the costs of treatment, please ask Allure staff and team about financing and repayment options.
