Mother’s Day and summertime are right around the corner, and both are the perfect reason to hit refresh. Whether you’re treating yourself or the matriarch in your life, with hotter days ahead, it’s time to eschew heavy makeup and moisturizers for something a bit longer-lasting: BOTOX® with a Collagen Boost.
Here’s everything you need to know about this classic treatment and how a little bit of collagen can enhance your results.
The Basics Of BOTOX®
Let’s be honest, you’re likely the reason for some of mom’s wrinkles, and now is the time to thank her for everything she’s done.
The most popular injectable, you likely know the gist of what it does: BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that prevents the injected muscles from contracting, softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for up to six months. Additionally, BOTOX® can also be strategically injected to provide a brow lift for an even more youthful appearance.
This safe procedure typically lasts for three months; however, it may last longer with specialized dosing. It takes only fifteen minutes to complete, making it well worth the investment. Treatments are customized at each and every visit based on the measured units to achieve the desired aesthetic.
How a Collagen Boost Can Enhance the Look
While BOTOX® alone is a top-tier treatment for preventing and treating fine lines and wrinkles, the addition of a collagen boost can take the look to the next level. We have several options that can be tailored to individual needs: Radiesse® Collagen Boost, Novathreads PDO threads, and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF).
Collagen is a necessary protein found naturally in the skin. Responsible for healthy joints as well as skin elasticity and stretchiness, this important building block slowly dissipates as we get older. The aesthetic result is skin laxity – which lacks the natural “spring” and luminosity, resulting in noticeable aging. While this is of course, totally normal, it’s also normal to want a little boost to reinvigorate the skin. Enter, The Collagen Boost.
Each of these treatments provides a stimulus to boost the cellular function of the fibroblast – the collagen-producing cells to o help retain your youthful, glowing complexion and trigger the production of this rockstar protein. The result is firmer, younger-looking skin that builds over time and lasts.
Gift the one-two punch of BOTOX® and a Signature Collagen Boost for a game-changing combo. When paired with BOTOX®, expect long-lasting results, with the BOTOX® giving you a (near) immediate youthful look while the collagen builds up over time for a refreshed, natural glow.
Still, keep in mind that finding a skilled injector is an important part of the process; we encourage you to come prepared with any questions you might have to ensure a fulfilling experience.
