Q: How long do neurotoxin injections last?
A: On average, neurotoxin injections last about 3-4 months. We recommend that our patients be committed to coming in for treatment 2-3 times per year. At minimum, we recommend that patients come in every 6 months--otherwise, the treatment will ultimately not be worth the money.

Q: What are the potential side effects of dermal filler injections?
A: Potential side effects of dermal filler injections include vascular events (occlusions), ophthalmic events, and infection.

Q: Will I still look natural/like myself/etc. after receiving injectable treatments?

We are all about celebrating your unique, individual beauty, so you will always leave feeling confident, beautiful, and like yourself--just without any wrinkles

Q: Help! I've never done anything to my face and don't know where to start! What should I do first?
A: Please come in for a free consultation! We would love to meet with you personally and discuss your concerns. We are passionate about providing our patients with real education, so that you know exactly what you are doing to your face and body and why!
Q: Is it painful to receive injections?
A: Let us be honest: it's never completely painless. However, we do everything we can to make sure you will be comfortable, including providing numbing cream for sensitive injection areas.
