Five quick, affordable tweakments that will take years off of your face

Updated: Apr 1


Cosmetic injectables have become almost as commonplace as spa treatments, but even with all the media coverage—or maybe because of some of the media coverage—some misconceptions linger.

For instance, you don’t need to have the disposable income of the Kardashians or The Real Housewives of Vancouver to be able to afford cosmetic injectable treatments. You also don’t have to look as “done” as wealthy socialites.

There are affordable, subtle options that will make you look more youthful. Most people won’t be able to pinpoint what is different about your face, but my clients often hear they look well-rested, fresh and relaxed.

Here are my top five picks of affordable cosmetic injectables that will give you the most bang for your buck.

​1. Neuromodulator/BOTOX for Crow’s Feet or Brow Furrow

Treatment: The neuromodulator is Injected to soften or eliminate crow’s feet or brow furrow. Results can last up to four months.

Treatment Time: 15 minutes

Cost: $200–$600

2. Lip Filler

Treatment: As we age, most of us will lose volume in our lips, and some of my clients have always had naturally thin lips. Lip fillers such as Juvéderm restore shape or plump up thin lips. The results usually last from six months to a year.

Treatment Time: 30 minutes

Cost: $200–$600

3. Cheek Filler

Treatment: The loss of fullness in the cheeks can cause hollowness or sagging. Cheek fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma, Juvéderm Volift or Restylane Lyft can be used to restore the loss of volume, making you look like a younger version of yourself. The results usually last one to two years.

Treatment Time: 30 minutes

Cost: $425-$1,900

4. Chin Filler

Treatment: As with the cheeks, the chin loses volume over time. That can cause dimpling or a deflated, tired look. Chin fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma or Restylane Lyft can give you a softer, more lifted look. The results typically last up to two years.

Treatment Time: 45 minutes

Cost: $1,100–$1,800

5. Neuromodulator/BOTOX for an ageing neck and jawline

Treatment: Want to soften and lift the look of your turkey neck? A quick, easy way to stop the platysma bands from pulling your jawline down is to treat the bands with BOTOX or Dysport. The Nefertiti lift creates a smoother, swanlike neck. The results last between four and five months.

Treatment Time: 15 minutes

Cost: $240–$500
