About

SAVING FACE is a boutique injectable lounge in Austin, Texas, specializing in dermal fillers, neuromuscular modulators, skin care, and personal relationships. Brooke has extensive training with blunt-tip microcunnuals, a method that provides safety and comfort for those clients seeking dermal filler.   Currently less than 20% of injectors use this technique.  Using the microcannulas, as opposed to the traditional methods of using sharp needles, studies show an 88% less bruising and less pain. Our goal is to collaborate with clients on a comprehensive plan in areas of cosmetic injections, skin care and when necessary, cosmetic surgery. Each plan will be detailed, customized to their direct needs and available for them to take home. Taking time to consult each client and understanding their desires and financial responsibilities will help us build relationships. LEARN MORE

Brooke Nichol

RN, CANS

BROOKE NICHOL is a Registered Nurse whose experience includes several years working with Beverly Hills top cosmetic surgeons. Developing a passion for the aesthetic field, the native Southerner extensively trained with Dermasculpt and specializes in blunt tip cannulas. Brooke believes in putting safety and comfort first, and she warmly and patiently educates clients on their procedures to put them at ease. Her expertise includes Botox, brow lifts, mid-face rejuvenation and lip enhancement, and she actively seeks out the latest technologies and therapies to provide the most effective treatments. “My motto is, “You have to look good to feel good to do good,” says Brooke. “If I can help people do better in this world, I am accomplishing my purpose.”

After training in critical care at Mississippi Baptist Hospital in 2001, Brooke joined the intensive care unit at Providence of St. Joseph Hospital in Los Angeles. Over the next few years, Brooke accepted the challenge of working in intensive care units and emergency rooms throughout Southern California, and these high-pressure situations helped her develop a steady composure and a warm personal rapport. Her skills attracted the interest of celebrity surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher, who recruited Brooke to become his operating room nurse in 2004. Three years later, Brooke expanded her career as an aesthetic injection specialist for Dr. Fisher and another famed surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie. With an eye for beauty developed under Beverly Hills’ top aesthetic surgeons, Brooke took her advanced technique to the Lone Star State in 2012 making a new home in Austin.

Saving Face has been a dream come true for Brooke. Partnering with Board Certified Plastic surgeon, Dr. Rocco Piazza, paved the way for this boutique injectable lounge to open. It is not about the numbers for Brooke, it is about the artistry involved and building personal relationships based on connection, comfort, and trust that only enhance once the results set in.
