Dr. Hillary Taggart, DNP-FNP-C, Cosmetic Injector

Dr. Hillary Taggart has been in the medical aesthetic industry since 2014 where she began her career at a plastic surgeon’s office. After building her skills, she transitioned to one of the nation’s top medspas, Elase Medical Spa. In addition to providing high-quality, sought-after aesthetic treatments and injectables, Hillary trained physicians and nurses all over the United States for the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics.

Hillary saw first hand how medspa were allowing the mighty dollar sign to let the focus slip away from what’s most important, the client. This drove her to open her own practice in 2018 with two offices, one in Millcreek and the other in Sandy. Clients responded favorably as her business grew exponentially in a matter of two years which pushed her to expand and rebrand in 2021, opening a Boutique style medspa that is client-centric.

Dr. Taggart emphasizes a more natural and conservative look for her clients. She has noticed that so many offices will go purely for quantity over quality, leaving their clients overdone and looking unnatural. Her goal is to first listen to her clients to understand their needs, concerns and desired results. Secondly, she takes time to educate the client so they understand why she may choose one product vs another or suggest one area to treat in addition to a concern a client brings up. As she puts it, her technique creates a result that “Everyone will notice, but no one will know.” This extra time and attention bring clients to Dr. Taggart’s office from across the United States because her work and communication with clients speaks for itself. Her energy is contagious, and her results are beautiful, restorative, and natural. It’s apparent to all that meet her she is passionate about what she does!
