Botox. Who is it really for?

Botox… Who? Why? Where?


Botox! If you’ve had it you probably know how fabulous it can be. If you haven’t, you may be wondering what in the

world all the hype is about.

First of all, who is Botox for? A lot of people have asked me who should be getting Botox? How do you know if and when you need it? The best way I can answer that is it varies from person to person.  Botox will erase lines that come from movement, or from making a facial expression (think of frowning, raising your eyebrows, squinting into the sun or smiling). The lines from those faces are the lines Botox will target. Everyone should have lines when they are actively making the expressions; that’s normal! When you STOP making the expression and the lines are still there? THAT is when it’s time to consider Botox.

There really isn’t a magical age or time, to start getting Botox. It’s on a very individual basis.

If having those lines doesn’t bother you, then don’t worry about it! Rock it!

A lot of people will tell me they don’t mind the lines around their eyes, but it’s the line between their eyebrows from frowning they don’t like. When their kids are always asking them “Mom… are you mad???” That’s when they start to consider having the treatment. Between the eyebrows is very common place to get Botox, and a great place to try it and see what you think. If you don’t like the result, well, now you know Botox isn’t your thing and when it wears off in 3-4 months, don’t get it again. Pretty simple right?

Wanting to stay natural looking, not frozen, is another concern I hear a lot.  My suggestion, is again, start off slow.  Most of my clients have their treatment between the eyebrows and/or a little around their eyes.  They still have expression. If they are mad, or happy, or surprised… you still know! ? It’s a softer look, but definitely still natural.

What I like about Botox, and this is something not everyone thinks of, is it’s preventative!  If you go for years and years and years of having lines from these expressions, the lines get deeper over time.  The deeper they get, the harder they are to erase. That is another reason when you notice you still have those angry frown lines, and you are far from being angry, it’s time to think about getting rid of them.

So if you are curious, you have questions, you want a little more information…. come talk to me!  Consults are free.

Again, Botox isn’t for everyone. I understand that.  We’ll figure out if Botox is something you can benefit from.
