Botox on the go is new trend
HOUSTON – A new trend in cosmetic procedures is almost as easy as ordering delivery.
Fillers, Botox, microderm abrasions... they're all mobile now.
We called NuMe Express, grabbed a co-worker, and got an inside look at how the facilities work.
"You don't have to leave work early," Dr. Brad Kovnat, CEO and Founder of NuMe Express, said. "We can call you 10 minutes before and say, 'Come on down we're ready for you.'"
As a young mom, KPRC 2 anchor/reporter Sofia Ojeda is confident telling us why she's game.
"You look at yourself and think I need a little bit of this. I need a little bit of that. Not to even mention working in the television industry," Ojeda said.
Those are some similar reasons people tell Kovnat his mobile unit meets their needs. His clientele is mostly women, but it's increasing among men and growing in popularity with 30- to 40-year-olds.
"They really love the convenience. That's why we're going to apartment complexes, high rises, partnering with gyms," he said.
Dr. Clayton Moliver said the small facility is not limiting. The unit functions the same as an office, and gives the same results.
"As we get older, as our face ages, not only does our skin tone and texture diminish but our volume of our face diminishes," Moliver said. "So these fillers are designed to add fillers back to the face to make it look more youthful, happier, healthier."
"If it makes you happy, then you are being true to yourself," Ojeda said.
She received two injections and she's back to work.
Depending on how many injections you get, the cost will vary. Kovnat said it will be between $150 or it could go up more than $1,000. He said they're looking to expand with other procedures, like tattoo removals, and expand to other cities.
