Today, we’re talking about the “B-word” ladies and gentlemen: BOTOX®! This treatment can come with a heavy hand of preconceived notions that leave most debating whether or not they should take the plunge.
First, what is Botox? It’s a neuromodulator treatment and it’s actually not the only one of its kind. At Project Skin MD we also offer Xeomin®. When expertly injected, these treatments relax the muscular movements that contribute to eye wrinkles, like crow’s feet, as well as frown lines, forehead lines and bunny lines on the nose to soften these unwanted lines and refresh a tired appearance.
One common fear that we often hear about neuromodulators like Botox is losing all of those beautiful expressions that make us who we are. The good news? We take a very natural approach at Project Skin MD and believe that Botox is an art form. It can be as soft and relaxed as you want it to be!
Another fear is that it will hurt. More good news! We numb the area beforehand and it’s relatively quick and painless (depending on who you ask). We’re also happy to offer hand holding, stimulating conversation and anything you need to distract you from a tiny little poke here and there!
Many clients also don’t know about Botox alternatives – and there are many! I’ve chosen to remain Botox and filler free for a while now and am happy to share other options with clients. My personal routine includes a steady SkinCeuticals regimen to keep me hydrated, exfoliated and protected, along with regular peels in combination with microneedling and MAX+ LED Light Therapy to strengthen my skin from the inside out. The results are glowrious!
If you struggle with deeper lines, laser technology is the way to go! We have many extremely effective options at Project Skin MD which yield great results, especially with a proper home care routine.
That’s the beauty in this ever-growing industry. It’s not one-sided towards any one treatment. We pride ourselves in offering a judgement-free zone at Project Skin MD and want you to make the right choice for you: your pace, your choices, our guidance, and incredible results.
