BOTOX: Everything You Need to Know

When you smile, laugh, or frown you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent deep wrinkles in the skin. Many see such wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Soft tissue fillers like BOTOX® can prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements. They can also erase such marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

WHAT IT IS: Botox is a highly purified protein injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles. Botox injections are relatively painless, as the needle used is significantly smaller than those used for other injectable fillers.

USES: Botox is primarily used to reduce lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. The procedure only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Wrinkles begin to fade within 24 hours, with continued improvement over the next five days.

CANDIDATES: The best candidates for Botox are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles. In addition, it is important that those seeking treatment are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing and do not have a neuromuscular disorder. People seeking Botox injections should have realistic expectations regarding this procedure’s abilities and should discuss their desired goals with their doctor beforehand.

Permanent Makeup: The Rising Trend

Summer is here and that means so is the heat and humidity. That also means it’s time for backyard barbecues, beach hangouts, and outdoor parties. This is one reason the permanent makeup trend is on the rise. So often summer heat melts away eyeliner, mascara, lipliner, and more. If you find yourself constantly having to reapply your makeup, or you are just tired of your daily extensive makeup routine, then it is time to explore the benefits of permanent makeup!

WHAT IS IT? Permanent makeup mimics the look of just-applied lipstick, lip liner, eyebrow pencil, and eyeliner. It is done through a process called micropigmentation. Micropigmentation uses a tattooing technique as a means of adding designs around the eyes, lips, and eyebrows for a full makeup-ready look.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Permanent makeup means saying goodbye not just to the constant application in humid months like the summer, but to your everyday lengthy makeup routine. The best part? It is long lasting! Give your face a break from dry powders and greasy liners. With permanent makeup, you can wakeup and go without the hassle.

WHERE CAN I GET IT DONE? We now offer permanent makeup at our spa, Spa Belle Meade! Currently, we offer permanent makeup solutions for eyebrows, eyeliner, full lip and lip liner. It is important to note that permanent makeup requires the same downtime and recovery as any other type of tattoo. We recommend avoiding the sun, pool, and/or beach for the first week.
