We all do our very best to take care of ourselves. Exercise and diet, great skin care routines, yoga, meditation, even great friendships have been shown to increase our confidence, health and longevity.

However, fighting the signs of aging can be a battle unto itself. While great skin care and moisturizing regime can work wonders in the short term, we are immune to the effects of time especially when it comes to our face.

Skin around our cheeks, nose and mouth will naturally begin to decline and sag – losing plumpness and volume. This naturally occurring fat loss in an aging face can result in a slightly hollowed, sagging look.

A surgical facelift will certainly address all of these issues. But surgery comes with expense and risks and for some of us that is not an option. For folks looking for a natural, safe, and non-surgical lift, FDA approved cosmetic dermal fillers can reverse the creases and sags. They hydrate and volumize the skin, recovering a natural and more youthful appearance.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment takes about an hour start to finish. This includes a thorough consultation and evaluation of the area, numbing of the area, and injection of the fillers.

Does it hurt?

At Beautoxetc we apply a custom blend of topical anesthetic that stays in place for about 20-30 minutes. The needles we use are very small and the fillers themselves have anesthetic in them. The rest is technique! Because of this, discomfort is minimized.

What about bruising?

There is always a risk of bruising with any dermal filler, regardless of who is injecting. At Beautoxetc we go to great lengths to minimize this as we know this is of course of great concern. We are very careful with technique and liberal with Arnica cream, a naturally growing herb that does wonders to prevent bruising.

Is there anything I can do to prevent bruising?

Avoid aspirin, NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen or Mortrin, St John’s Wort, and Vitamin E supplements for a week or so after treatment. (Be sure to speak with your doctor before holding aspirin). At Beautoxetc we send all clients home with a supply of Arnica cream to apply for 24 hours or so. Avoid alcohol for 24 hours and ice the area a few times a day.

How often will I have to have this done?

Dermal fillers last 12-18 months.

I DO NOT want to look like a Kardashian!

And you won’t! At Beautoxetc we never overfill – our techniques are focused on a natural and subtle result – people will not ask if you have had work done, but note how beautiful you look! Our goal is a more youthful, natural appearance.
