“It’s just too expensive.”
“My face will look frozen.”
“Me? Never! It’s just for women!”

Let the facts lead the way
Treatments are too pricey.
fact: They’re more affordable than you think.
We believe that cost should not get in the way of looking your best and we are proud to offer the lowest prices guaranteed* on all of our treatments. This commitment, combined with our flexible financing options**, make our treatments even more accessible than you’d expect.
Treatments are painful.
fact: Most patients say injections feel like a mosquito bite.
Many of our patients are surprised to discover that our treatments hardly hurt. Many of our dermal fillers are prepared with Lidocaine to reduce pain and an anesthetizing cream can be applied to the treatment zone upon request.
Treatments are risky.
fact: Products we use are safe and FDA-approved.
Your safety is our top priority. The products we use have undergone rigorous testing to ensure their safety before they officially entered the market. Additionally, many of our products contain hyaluronic acid; a component the body naturally produces, meaning they are made up of organic substances safe for absorption.
My face will look expressionless.
fact: Our team strives for natural-looking results.
Rest assured: We don’t want to freeze your face (or your emotions). You will receive a customized treatment plan during your first appointment, and we will administer the appropriate amount of product to help reverse the signs of aging while leaving you with a radiant, glowing look.
Treatments take too long. So does recovery.
fact: Treatments take under an hour & downtime is minimal!
In reality, many patients treat themselves to lunchtime lifts and return to their daily activities quickly so no one will be the wiser. Generally, treatments are short: facial muscle relaxants take roughly 15 minutes to administer while dermal filler treatments take up to 30 minutes and a Refresh Lift® can take up to one hour. Following treatments, swelling or bruising is usually quite minimal and disappear within 24 hours. Remember: Every patient is unique and results may vary.
Dermal fillers & facial muscle relaxants serve the same purpose.
fact: Each treatment addresses different concerns!
Facial muscle relaxants smooth dynamic wrinkles caused by smiles, frowns and squinting, whereas fillers on top of smoothing static wrinkles replace lost volume in cheeks, and lips and redefine the jawline and contours of your face. Plus, these customizable treatments can also act as a preventative measure against future signs of aging.
Treatments can’t be combined.
fact: Get to know Refresh Lift®, our signature 2-in-1 treatment!
Thanks to this combination of dermal fillers and facial muscle relaxants, you’ll get optimal and rejuvenated results in under an hour. Your aesthetic professional will determine the safest and most effective course of treatment for you.
Once I start, monthly visits will be required.
fact: Results can last for months.
The results of dermal filler treatments start to show immediately. Optimal results, achieved in two weeks, can last roughly six months to a year. The effects of facial muscle relaxants appear in 14 days and can last for up to four months.
Anti-aging creams are just as effective.
fact: Injectables correct the signs of aging from within for a total refresh.
Creams can’t stop the aging process once it has begun. Injectables correct the signs of aging from within for a total refresh, unlike skin creams, which mostly work on the surface.
Treatments are just for women.
fact: Use in men has increased by 100% since 1997!†
Millions of men worldwide are turning to medical aesthetic treatments to help them look their best and restore their confidence. Just last year, men in the United States received over 1.2 million treatments, a number expected to climb as treatments continue to soar in popularity.
