The truth is natural beauty isn’t entirely natural…


The truth is natural beauty isn’t entirely natural. When you think about it we all alter something about ourselves to feel good about the way we look. Like changing your hair color, whitening your teeth, waxing your eyebrows, getting your nails done, going to tanning beds, and covering your face with make-up. The list goes on and the pressure is always on for women to look a certain way. So how is getting Botox at Images Med Spa any different than all these other things we do to look good? We shouldn’t view Botox in a negative way because it is a form of self-care. If getting Botox makes you feel good then do it and because damn it you deserve to feel good about yourself!! 💖.

Botox 101

What is Botox? This is one of the most common questions when it comes to Botox. Everyone seems to know that it treats signs of age such as wrinkles and fine lines. But what Botox really is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. The confusing part about botox is that it does not directly treat the wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. When botox is injected into the concerned areas it targets those active muscles under the skin. Throughout your lifetime you will make multiple facial expressions and this causes the wrinkles to form. Sometimes we make these facial expressions without even realizing it. Like when we squint from the sun this could cause wrinkles around the eye region. Botox stops those muscles from contracting and blocks the nerve transmission. The muscle essentially becomes blocked so even if the brain signals your body to move the muscle it is “frozen”.

Important Questions to Ask Before Getting Botox →

Is Botox Dangerous?

First off Botox is approved by the FDA and people do it every day! Botox is a neurotoxin and that might scare you away but it shouldn’t because it’s perfectly safe. Such little amounts of units are injected it’s impossible for the botox to just roam the body since it can only travel 3 cm from where it was injected. For Botox to be toxic you would have to be injected with 2,500-3,000 units and that would never happen! Also, small doses are effective enough to completely remove wrinkles and fine lines. Botox does not last forever so if you want to keep up with the results you will want to schedule future appointments.

Preventable Measure

It is normal nowadays for the younger generations to book an appointment for botox. At Images Med Spa we see more and more 20-30-year-olds coming to get preventative botox. There might be little to no signs of age and this is one of the best times to get botox! The reason is that you will need less of it and you won’t have to come as frequently vs. if you waited before it worsens. People often come running for the spa the minute they turn 30 and the reason is that the skin does no bounce back like it did when you were younger. The loss of collagen may have affected the skin overall and this will cause the wrinkles to become more prominent. More wrinkles will require more units of botox which can become costly. Getting botox early on will save your skin and wrinkles from deepening later down the road. As we mentioned before since botox blocks the muscle from contracting this will overall affect how you age in the future and lessen those wrinkles altogether. When it comes to beauty we all do our best to keep up with looking good and that is a form of self-care. If getting your roots touched up makes you feel good and look good then you’ll do it. As we all know looking good and feeling good is all aligned. Taking care of yourself comes in many different forms and Botox might just be one of them.
