Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve never done anything! Where should I start?
It’s okay if you don’t know where to start! Let’s chat about your aesthetic goals! It helps me to hear about any changes that you’re noticing on your face/body, how these changes make you feel, and what you are open to in trying to meet your aesthetic goals.
Will I still look like myself?
My goal is to keep you looking rested and refreshed. When we discuss your treatment plan, I want to hear what changes you’re noticing on your face/body, how these changes make you feel, and what you are open to trying to meet your aesthetic goals. My approach is focused on addressing subtle refinements – softening shadows and creating appropriate light reflection so that your face appears bright and fresh.
How long will my filler last?
This depends on a few things such as product and amount injected, areas treated, and your metabolism, just to name a few. Typically most filler lasts 1-2 years. You might come in before that for touch-ups, maintenance, or just to add a little more because you love it!
When should I start getting Botox?
Start when you are ready! For most patients this is in their late 20s to mid-30s when they are starting to notice fine lines in their frown, forehead, and around their eyes. Botox can be used to prevent fine lines from getting etched into deep-set lines.
How much Botox should I get?
Your Botox dose depends on your aesthetic goals, the areas that you are treating, and how strong your muscles are. This dose will vary person to person. Typically a person who wants to really restrict their muscles and/or who has strong muscles, will require more Botox units to reach their goals. We will determine your Botox dose during your consultation, but you can review common dosing ranges on our Botox treatment page
How much does it cost?
A: We will determine your treatment costs after developing your personalized treatment plan. Sometimes we will break down the treatment plan to be conducted into stages.
