Botox 101

Botox… Have you heard of it? Of course you have! It’s one of the most popular treatments for treating fine lines and wrinkles but did you know there are other ways this miracle injection can help you? Before I Dive into all the ways Botox can transform your face (and maybe even your life!), let’s take a look at how it works.

Botox is injected into key areas of the face ‑ typically in places where a lot of animation takes place causing fine lines and wrinkles to develop through years of repeated use. Botox works to halt communication between nerve impulses and the muscles, causing the muscles to relax or “freeze” for several weeks to months. Relaxing these muscles helps stop the creation of wrinkles, making this a great preventative treatment but also effective for existing lines.

Let’s take a look at some of the unique ways Botox can be used to give you a fresh long lasting look!

Micro‑Tox™

Want the glass skin look that everyone is talking about? Micro‑Tox is just what you need! AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ micro‑needles are tapped into the skin infusing a cocktail of neuromodulators, filler, vitamins or PRP. It’s basically a real‑life selfie filter that instantly reduces pores, oil, fine lines, and redness while increasing hydration in just minutes!

With no pain or downtime, you’ll see results within 24‑48 hours of treatment, and results last 4‑8 weeks. I recommend at least 4 treatments a year to keep that glass skin glow! 

Forehead Wrinkles

Frown lines and forehead wrinkles are some of the most popular places to get Botox. Just a poke here and there, wait about a week and those lines and wrinkles will disappear! 

This is a wonderful place to get preventative Botox to get as early as in your 20s! Botox just launched their “Look of 3” campaign, which encourages people to get Botox in three places on their face 3 times a year to keep looking refreshed and young. This would certainly be on my top 3 list! 

Crow’s Feet

Nobody likes crow’s feet. They’re one of the first signs of aging for many people and nobody really wants to LOOK like they’re aging. Fortunately, our good friend Botox is here to help. 

By injecting Botox around the eyes, these muscles can be relaxed, removing the fine lines and giving you a more youthful and fresh look that’s long-lasting. Just a few pokes and you look ten (or twenty) years younger! Almost like magic! 

So smile away, knowing that the only thing people are noticing….is your beautiful smile!

Lips 

This combo is one of my FAVORITES. No need for filler ‑ just get a Botox Lip flip paired with a thread for full luscious-looking lips. 

Know as “Botox Lip Flip”, applying Botox to the upper lip relaxes the muscle upward, causing more of the lip to be shown both in a neutral state and when smiling. Adding a smooth thread to the vermillion border helps push out the Cupid’s bow, giving a more defined and fuller look. 

This is my go‑to again and again as it’s so natural-looking. I often do add a bit of filler just for that extra fullness, but as you can see it’s really not needed!

Chin

Hate that orange peel look on your chin? A few pokes will relax the muscle and you can say goodbye to that tense, curled appearance. You’ll be left with a smooth and refined look that will last months. As a bonus, add a bit of filler to the chin, and honey, you’ve got yourself a sleek and defined lower face just like that! 

Lower Face and Jawline

If you’re looking for another way to contour your lower face, then consider Botox in your masseter and jaw muscles. This is beneficial in that it not only helps create a sleek jawline but can help you stop grinding your teeth and treat TMJ, which if you suffer from you know this can be a great relief and save your teeth! 

Contouring the low face gives a slimmer appearance, and recreates that upside-down triangle which is synonymous with a youthful appearance.

Nefertiti Neck Lift

Look like the queen you are with the Nefertiti Neck Lift! This procedure uses Botox along your jawline and platysma bands to improve jaw definition, and get rid of the “tree trunk” appearance in the neck. Applying Botox along the forward jawline causes the muscles that pull your face down to relax. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can correct the contour of your lower face. 

Add filler for full neck rejuvenation and now you have the ultimate “power couple” for a smoother, more youthful neck. 

The whole process only takes a few minutes and there’s no downtime, making this procedure great for people on the go. It takes about five days to see full results, which last for 3‑4 months. Keep the neck taught, and smooth by getting quarterly touch-ups!
