Are you curious about how Voluma, Restylane, Dysport, Botox and other fillers and injectables can freshen your face’s appearance? Oh let’s be honest here ladies. Do you want to look younger, smoother and well, like a better version of yourself? I know I do! Read on for a review of my experience getting a variety of fillers and injectables at Absolute Beauty Company in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Hi! This is Courtney Smith, and I am the Founder of Bashelorette. Full disclosure here. I am 37 years young, an entrepreneur and single mom who loves fitness and staying active. The last few years all the hustle and bustle seemed to have taken a toll on my face, and I was not really sure what to do about it. A couple years ago I found out I have a severe dairy allergy (boo no more cheese). When I quit dairy, aside from feeling 100% better, something else unexpected happened. I lost 10 pounds over the course of about a year, without changing a thing (other than cutting out all dairy). Yay for weight loss! Boo for weigh loss in the face though. I lost so much fat, that my cheeks seem to disappear, making me look older than I am. Add some wrinkles from full time parenting and running two businesses (I would not trade them for a thing), and you have the perfect candidate for some fillers and injectables. My best friend Kelly knows all about these things, so upon her recommendation, I scheduled a consultation with Zorina, the owner of Absolute Beauty Company, located in Old Town Scottsdale.
Let me begin by saying, Zorina is gorgeous and so sweet. Absolute Beauty Companyis easy to get to, as it is located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, with ample free parking. Zorina has an impressive medical background which made me feel incredibly comfortable and at ease. Her background includes a B.A. in Women’s Studies, Register Nurse, 17 years as an R.N., 3 years of experience in medical dermatology, and 7 years of experience with wound care. We chatted about what I was hoping to achieve, and what she recommended. I like Zorina from the get go. She is like a best friend in the fact that she will not sugar coat things. When it comes to my face, I don’t want someone to say “girl you don’t need that.” I want someone who has a syringe and a solution!
Here is what I wanted to achieve aesthetically:
Add “cheekbones” to reduce “sunken in look”
Slightly plump top and bottom lips
Smooth forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet
Zorina recommended Voluma for my cheeks, Restylane for my lips and Dysport for my wrinkles. The whole appointment took about an hour from start to finish. I was expecting more discomfort, but it was surprisingly easy. A numbing cream was applied to my lips and cheeks, so I did not really feel anything more than a pinch. I have had Dysport before, which barely hurts, so that was nothing new.
My results from Dysport, Voluma and Restylane
My results were immediate from the Restylane and Voluma. I was so happy when I looked in the mirror! Dysport takes a few days, but it turned out beautiful! I actually have cheeks again and goodbye thin lips. Full disclosure here – while I love the full lip look, I did not do a ton, because I wanted everything to look really natural. I play a lot of sports, and consider myself a “sometimes polished tomb boy” so I wasn’t going for the full plump and pouty look (which is beautiful, just not me). Before and after photos are below.
After Voluma in the Cheeks, Restylane in the upper and lower lips and Dysport in forehead and crow’s feet:
I am so happy with my results, and will be visiting my go-to Scottsdale Med Spa when a touch up is needed. I am so grateful to have a natural look that just looks like a more refreshed, better version of me. If you are interested in wrinkle reduction, skincare, fillers and injectables, Zorina is an absolute wealth of information. She will take the time to understand the look you are going for, and make recommendations based on her expertise. I have tried Dysport and Botox at other places, included renowned plastic surgery centers. In all honesty, Zorina is the best out of all of them, so I personally give her 5 stars. Tip: She usually offers a discount if you pay in cash! See below to view the Absolute Beauty website, address, and more.
