Brides guide to BOTOX...

Bride’s Guide to BOTOX.  What you should know….

Botox clients are getting younger and younger.  Our 20 somethings are embracing skincare and selfcare like no previous generation.  When it comes time to consider your preparations for your special day, Botox definitely has a place at the top of the list. 

 

Here are some facts to consider:

-Clients age 20-34 make up the fastest growing demographic for Botox treatments

-Botox can make a bride look rested and bright countering the effects of stress leading up to the big day

-A recent study from AAFPRS (American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) reports that 42% of it’s member offices are seeing clients seeking cosmetic procedures to look better in photos they post online.

-Clients in the 20-34 age group are unique in their desire to “get ahead” of wrinkles and aging.  The taboo of injectables is a thing of the past.  Millennial clients embrace Botox for prevention. 

-Preventative Botox is REAL!  An ounce of prevention truly is worth it when it comes to Botox.  Smaller dosages at a younger age actually prevent the wrinkles of aging.  When you start getting injections early, Botox freezes the muscle so that the wrinkles can never form.  They are literally stopped before they ever get started!

-Clients often start between the age of 25 and 30 but we have clients as young as 20.

-Botox does more than just paralyze the facial muscles.  It actually has a smoothing effect on the skin. New studies indicate that Botox actually has long term benefits in the skins ability to stretch and recoil.  READ: flawless, glowing pictures!

 

So how do you know if it’s right for you?  How do you know if you’re ready?

If you’ve been considering Botox but aren’t quite sure, we encourage you to come in for a complimentary consultation.  That is the best way to gain knowledge and comfort as well as to know exactly what a Botox treatment might look like for you.  Our injectors are experts and are fantastic at making you feel right at home, truly educating and collaborating with YOU on the best plan of action that you are comfortable with.  Sometimes at the end of a consultation, we determine that a great eye cream or a chemical peel might be all you need.  Some clients need 15 units of Botox, others may need 50. 

 

When is the right time to start?

 There is no right or wrong time to start.  As you read above, we have lots of clients starting younger and younger to take advantage of the preventative effects of Botox.  If you have a big event coming up, we do recommend planning ahead.  You want at least 1 full treatment cycle prior to your event date.  This means scheduling your first treatment 4-6 months before your event.  This allows a “trial treatment” so that you feel comfortable and confident with your result and it allows the injector time to customize your treatment and learn your preferences.  Once your regimen has been perfected, you will want to treat about 4-6 weeks before your big day. Botox takes up to 2 weeks to take it’s full effect and then tends to soften in over the first 4-6 weeks.  This will allow for a flawless yet natural glow for those wedding day pictures!

 

Other great treatments to consider include chemical peels, plasma (PRP) facials, IPL or photofacials and dermal fillers.  Planning a wedding can be taxing.  It’s important to remember your selfcare so that your skin will be GLOWING.  Those pictures will last a lifetime…..You want to present your best self, and we are here to help.  Botox and Fillers can be an amazing way to improve your appearance and look your very best for a big event.   Find an experienced injector with a natural and conservative style, one that you are comfortable with.   You and your groom want your natural beauty to shine on your big day. 

 

 

Not sure what’s right for you?  Consider this your personal invitation for a complimentary consultation.  No pressure, really.  We’ll chat and share all the things we have to offer and then you can decide what’s right for you and YOUR big day.
