DermFx’s 8th Annual Health and Beauty Expo, presented by Botox® Cosmetic, promises to be better than ever. Event-goers will learn about the latest options available for health and beauty maintenance—dermal fillers, body sculpting, skin resurfacing and more—with plenty of live demonstrations. Guys and gals should dress the part for this Roaring ‘20s-themed event. 


1 | All Aboard the Botox Express Health and Beauty Expo

What: Outer beauty is delivered inside this bus
Why: Where else can you get injectables on-the-go?

An RV transformed into a mobile Botox bar, The Botox Express will take you where you’ve always wanted to go: first stop, the Fountain of Youth. “We’re selling ten premiere VIP tickets (to the Expo), which comes with a Botox service on our Botox Express bus,” says DermFx Marketing Director Megan Farquhar. Premiere tickets include early access, a VIP super swag bag and treatment coupons.

Native Knowledge: VIP Early Bird Admission ($99) includes a swag bag with $200 in skincare, free gifts and a $50 coupon to use towards sale items. This also includes separate entry so no waiting in line. VIP Experience ($449) includes all of the above PLUS receive 40 units of Botox on board the Botox Express during the Expo. 


2 | Creating the Body of a God(dess) Health and Beauty Expo

What: Venus Legacy, Emsculpt and CoolSculpting
Why: Reduce fat and cellulite, tighten skin and enhance muscle definition     

Live demos of the Venus Legacy, which tightens skin and reduces fat and cellulite, and Emsculpt, which boosts muscle definition and reduces fat, will be presented. “It’s a hot new trend for those who don’t have time to spend hours in the gym but want to gain muscle definition,” says Farquhar. Another live demo by CoolSculpting will showcase how their fat-freezing technology has evolved.

3 | You Glow, Girl! Health and Beauty Expo

What: HydraFacial
Why: Cleanse, exfoliate, peel and hydrate

“A facial on steroids” is how Farquhar refers to the HydraFacial, a quick and immediately-effective facial with instant results. It provides gentle exfoliation with skin resurfacing and painless extractions. It also hydrates the skin, saturating it with antioxidants and peptides, leaving skin glowing and radiant. It addresses all skin care needs and is right for everyone. See for yourself at the HydraFacial demo. 


4 | Age Is Just a Number With Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Reducers

What: Xeomin, Dysport, Jeuveau, Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and more
Why: Reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, diminish facial lines and restore volume

Press the pause button on aging from months to years with fillers and wrinkle reducers. “Botox and Juvederm definitely hold the household name for wrinkle reducers and fillers,” says Farquhar, “but there’s a huge variety of options now, and they will all be at the Expo.” Newly-launched Jeuveau (aka #NEWTOX), a wrinkle-relaxing injectable, will make its debut alongside its predecessors Xeomin, Dysport and Botox, among many others.  

Native Knowledge: Enjoy food, champagne and dessert at the Expo. Raffles will be held at all vendor booths, giving away $10,000 worth of treatments, getaways and more. 


5 | Zap Away Saggy and Dull Skin With Lasers 

What: ScarLet RF, V-Zet and Venus Legacy
Why: Tighten skin and minimize wrinkles, blemishes and scars 

According to Farquhar, a new laser treatment to look out for at the Expo is the ScarLet RF (aka the 20-minute instant facelift), which combines radiofrequency with microneedling to smooth and tighten. The Scarlet RF also treats virtually any skin issue. Also new are the V-Zet and Venus Legacy, both of which tighten, lift and tone the skin, reduce wrinkles and remove cellulite.
