Why do I find such different prices for Botox? Is there a difference?
It seems as though Botox has become extremely popular and since its FDA approval, it is now available everywhere, including friend’s homes, beauty salons, traveling nurses, and the list goes on. When Botox is purchased by a licensed physician, it comes in a “vacuum-dried” form, which is then properly diluted with saline, creating “units” of the product, ready for injection. Question carefully on how many “units” are going to be injected for a particular price. Advertising with the slogan, “Only $150 Per Syringe” is often used to entice individuals to try their lower priced services. Botox can be diluted to any volume an injector desires. Getting twenty times more volume only spreads the same amount of medication out over a larger space. You don’t get more effect with more dilution. Thus, it is important to know how many “units” are being injected. At the Broadway Center for Plastic Surgery, one syringe of Botox (containing 1cc of fluid) averages 25 units of Botox. To treat both the frown lines and the forehead area, approximately 1 to 1-1/2 syringes are used. The crows feet requires 1 syringe. Variances in amount used depends on forehead size and severity of lines. There are very good reasons why Botox should be administered by an M.D. and his trained staff. Proper training and use of this medication minimizes the risk for complications. Dr. Broadway takes pride in constant training and educating his registered nurses. New techniques in administering Botox are utilized, and he insists patient safety is foremost. Insist on going to a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist when getting Botox and become informed about the units used in treating your facial wrinkles.

What is DiamondTome Microdermabrasion?
Crystal Free microdermabrasion is a gentle technique for removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. The Diamond-tipped wand removes this upper layer by polishing it with natural diamond chips and then vacuuming the dead skin. The result is a smoother surface with the promotion of the growth of healthy new skin cells. We now offer three luxurious levels of Microdermabrasion:
