As hard as this may be to believe, I have never had Botox. I am one of the owners at Dream Spa Medical and Botox is one of our most popular treatments, but I guess like in that children’s story… “The Cobbler Has No Shoes”…I had put my treatment off because we were always so busy. So I have never had Botox……until now.
I finally had my first Botox injection 2 weeks ago and the result is magic! That’s the best way I can describe it. As a new mom and a more-than-full- time working woman, sleep is a luxury I can’t always afford. Sometimes, neither is full makeup. After Botox, I now can just wash my face, add my morning moisturizers, apply a little mascara (sometimes at a stop light in traffic) and look refreshed and naturally rested. The wrinkles around my eyes are gone, my left eye (which has always been a little more closed than my right) is now exactly symmetrical and in proportion to my right eye and the lines on my forehead have disappeared.
I should also mention that Lindsey Gillooly, Dream Spa Medical’s advanced nurse practitioner injector, is a genius. Her clinical skills and aesthetic eye are incredible. She knew exactly how much Botox to put in the precise areas of my face to give me a perfectly even, radiant and most importantly, natural result. Unlike the common misperception, I can express emotions and move my face normally.
Pair the Botox results with my simple yet effective homecare routine as suggested by my fabulous team (ie The #dreamteam) of aestheticians, and my face looks better today at age 34 than in my 20s (when tanning beds and not wearing sunscreen was cool). This is why I love what I do…I can confidently stand behind the work of my team and am continuously impressed with the sheer talent of these women.
