All about Botox - an Esthetician's POV
It seems like botox is everywhere now and no longer comes with the negative stigma of "botched botox" or "frozen face" syndrome. Ask any injector and they'll tell you that Botox actually works hand-in-hand with prevention and anti-aging practices.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles and works by freezing the muscle so it can't contract. The wrinkles relax and soften thus preventing and/or erasing fine lines. There's also many studies that show botox injections are beneficial in treating chronic headaches and migraines.
Generally injections last anywhere from 3-4 months (give or take). Having a great skincare routine in place and implementing skincare products to support your botox are key. It's also important to choose your injector wisely. Ask lots of questions, possible side effects, what his/her qualifications are, and if your goals are realistic or not. If she knows her business, she'll be upfront and honest with you and will more than likely take a more conservative approach if it's your first time.
My favorite injector who knows her stuff is Jenny Etchart, RN from The Injection Studio in Boise, ID. Jenny travels to Salmon quarterly and does injections and fillers at Sweet Cheeks. For a consultation or to book an appointment with her call or text (208) 921-4001.

The Botox Bundle is a natural alternative to botox and injections without the commitment.
