Answers to frequently asked questions about De Novo Aesthetics ~ offering concierge Botox at an affordable price!
Sep 16, 2015 admin
We bring Medical Cosmetic Botox treatments to your home, office, or at one of our boutique locations. Concierge Botox at an affordable price!
Only highly-trained, licensed, board-certified Registered Nurses provide Botox treatments at De Novo Aesthetics. All De Novo Nurses are Certified Botox Injection Specialists™.
FOR YOU: All De Novo nurses are licensed Registered Nurses, trained in expert injecting by our Medical Directors Dr. Alissandro "Andy" Castillo and Dr. Rebecca Appleton and must be Certified Botox Injection Specialists. They are subject to a background check prior to employment, must have a valid NC driver’s license, and must be up to date with CPR training.
FOR OUR NURSES: Before a De Novo Aesthetics nurse comes to your location, we will require some information from you to confirm your identity and your location. While we strive to be very flexible, we will always allow our nurses the discretion to request an alternate location. Entrances to our locations are monitored by video surveillance, and the nurses have immediate access to an alarm. De Novo nurses carry no cash ~ all payments must be credit card transactions. The central office knows the nurse's location at all times through live, real-time GPS tracking.
FOR BOTH YOU AND OUR NURSES: We have Standard Operating Procedures designed to cover all possible circumstances. This includes what is known as a "Finger Stick Protocol," in the extremely unlikely event of an accidental needle stick to you or the nurse. In this rare circumstance, you may be required to submit to blood tests, including a quick HIV test and drawing blood for additional testing. This has never happened in the history of De Novo Aesthetics, but we are prepared nonetheless.
De Novo Aesthetics charges $11 per unit for Botox. There is a small $25 travel fee to have a Registered Nurse come to your home or office, but this fee is waived for first-time patients. Our efficiency and low overhead allows us to offer this service at such a remarkably low price. There is no travel fee if you visit one of our boutique locations.
All De Novo Aesthetics patients may take advantage of Primo Pricing ONE TIME only. Primo Pricing is $1 less per unit.
AT OUR LOCATIONS: There is no minimum required for visits to our locations.
IN YOUR HOME: For first-time patients there is no minimum number of units required for our nurses to travel. However, for subsequent visits, there is a 12-unit minimum. This includes touch-up visits -- so we strive to get your best results with the first treatment.
After your initial appointment, we must charge a small travel fee and require a minimum number of units to make it cost-effective to travel to your home. However, we do allow you to split those minimums between up to 3 people. The 12-unit minimum is for each travel incidence, as is the $25 travel fee. So if you need fewer than 12 units, you can invite a few friends over and split the minimum number of units as well as the travel fee. We can treat up to 3 people at each location, but each patient must be registered separately and the appointments must be scheduled consecutively through our scheduler.
For example: You and Jennifer and Sarah would all like Botox. You only need a touch-up or 2 to 4 units, your friend Jennifer needs 24 units, and Sarah needs 8. The combined number of units is 34 to 36 units, easily meeting the 12-unit minimum. You can also split the travel fee among yourselves ~ Jennifer and Sarah can each give you $8 while you pay $9 to cover the $25 fee.
De Novo Aesthetics administers certified Botox, stored and reconstituted in strict accordance to Allergan standards. But our treatments ARE different: they're better! Not only are they only administered by board-certified Registered Nurses, but our nurses use two devices to protect against bruising. De Novo nurses use the Accuvein vein finder and a Syris polarizing headlamp to better see the area to be treated. This helps us avoid hitting veins which can result in bruising. We also keep precise records of injection sites taking pictures to track your results.
Yes! De Novo Aesthetics has three locations. The first boutique location is upstairs in Davidson Commons at Salon Lofts #7. The Davidson address is 624 Jetton St., Davidson, NC, 28036. The second boutique location is in Charlotte upstairs at Salon Lofts #19. The Charlotte location is at the corner of Pineville-Matthews Rd. and Carmel Rd. in Carmel Village.
Botox Express Service is also available in Lake Norman at M.D. Laser Studio at 538 Williamson Rd. in Mooresville. This is where our Medical Directors are located, so if you're interested in any services beyond Botox feel free to call 704-664-4247 to schedule a consultation. The $100 consultation fee is waived for all De Novo Aesthetics patients.
Of course, we can also come to YOUR location with our concierge service.
For the safety of our De Novo nurses, we only take debit or credit cards. Nurses carry no cash. We do not accept checks. Once your treatment plan is made and you've given your approval, our nurse will charge your credit card and then administer your Botox.
It takes 10 days to see the full results from any Botox treatment. If after 10 days you still feel that you need more Botox, our nurse will return to your preferred location and fine-tune your treatment. We will take more pictures and compare your results, noting any changes in dosage, so your next treatment will be spot-on!
Botox is our preferred product. Keeping our inventory limited to one reliable product is another way that we're able to maintain a low overhead.
However, if it's requested in advance, we can typically provide Dysport.
No. De Novo only offers Botox ~ a muscle relaxer. If you're looking to fill creases or increase volume in your lips or cheeks, you need a dermal filler. De Novo Aesthetics does not currently offer dermal fillers.
If you're interested in dermal fillers, feel free to schedule an appointment with our Medical Director, Dr. Andy Castillo, at his full-service medical cosmetic facility: M.D. Laser Studio.
De Novo Aesthetics currently serves Charlotte, North Carolina, within the I-485 beltway and the Lake Norman area, including Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Denver, and Sherrill's Ford.
We may be able to make exceptions, so if you live outside one of the areas we typically serve, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We elect not to treat patients under the age of 18. Other than that, any age patient who qualifies medically is welcome!
If you would like to have a friend or two join you at your appointment, we can accommodate up to 3 patients by scheduling consecutive appointments at one location! Just remember, the nurse will need approximately 30 minutes with each person. Each person will need to register as a New Patient and schedule a separate appointment.
With multiple appointments at one home location, only one patient will be charged the $25 travel fee. You can split this with your friends! And if you come to one of our boutique locations, there is no travel fee.
You can schedule your appointment through this website by clicking on the "Schedule" link or clicking the appropriate link at the bottom of the page. NOTE: if you've never had a De Novo Aesthetics nurse come to your home or office to administer Botox, you will need to click the BLUE button and answer a few medical questions first. You can call or text us toll-free at 844-663-6267 to schedule or with any questions.
Aside from registering and completing your Medical History form in advance of your first appointment, there is very little else you need to do.
IN YOUR HOME: We know you're busy. We don't expect your house to be clean and ready for company: we are there to provide a service, not cause you additional stress! Select an area in your home where we can comfortably treat you. We need around 2 or 3 square feet of table or counter top space, and a chair or bar stool (preferably with a back), and decent lighting. Generally the kitchen or dining room area works best. We also ask that you contain any excitable pets. But that's really it! We want this process to be as simple and convenient as possible.
IN OUR LOCATION: We do accept drop-ins, but appointments are highly encouraged to ensure that a De Novo nurse is available.
The needles used to deliver Botox are quite tiny. Very few people describe the treatment as painful. In fact, most people are surprised at how comfortable the procedure is, and even people who experience mild discomfort agree that the sensation is brief.
Yes! Brilliant Distinctions® is a rewards program offered by Allergan, the makers of Botox Cosmetic. Every time you get treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you’ll earn points for savings on future treatments or purchases. It’s easy, and free, and De Novo Aesthetics supports the program! Click on the link on the bottom of the page to access the Brilliant Distinctions program.
In most states, it is against the law for a medical professional to accept a tip.
We don't allow tips. We provide exceptional service because that's what we do!
We offer demonstration and treatments events. For demonstration events, a De Novo Aesthetics nurse will come and treat you or one of your guests so everyone can see what a treatment is like. For treatment events, we need about 25 minutes per person, per nurse. We strive to offer personalized, individual care, so if you have more than 3 people interested in treatment we need to know in advance so we can arrange to have more than one nurse.
When we do an event in someone's home, we prefer that all attendees be registered and pre-approved for treatment by our Medical Director prior to the event.
If you would like to be considered to host a De Novo Aesthetics Botox event, please email us at email@example.com.
While we loved the name Encore Nurses, we learned that in order to trademark the name and expand to other states, there couldn't be any other businesses that had Encore in their name. For that reason we chose De Novo, which means "anew." We also chose to use the word "aesthetics" as we plan to add dermal filler and other cosmetic services in the future.
