Fillers and Botox, to most of us, have always seemed so “Hollywood” or unnatural, but lets be honest- we’ve all secretly thought about a little filler here or some Botox there to smooth out those furrows. Truth is, fillers and Botox are safe and can look as natural as the talent of the professional performing the procedure. Sure we’ve all seen the “trout pout” or “clown face”, but an experienced professional knows when to stop, how much is needed here or there and what fits best with your face shape.

Now lets address some common questions and get yourself signed up!
Where can I get Botox and how does it work? General rule of thumb- Botox goes from the “crows feet” up. So forehead, furrows, and crows feet can be safely injected. Why? Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles so the muscles can’t contract, and you wouldn’t want to stop movement anywhere below the eyes right?
How long does Botox last? Generally 4-6 months, but it does all depend on how quickly your body metabolizes it.
Is Botox safe? Botox is safe as long as it is injected by an experienced professional. Botox is also FDA approved.
What are Fillers? Fillers are different than Botox. The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic Acid fillers, which is what we use at Mindful Women. Hyaluronic Acid is already present in the body, which puts a lot of minds at ease. It is a gel like substance that gives a natural, plumped look. Fillers are injected below the eyes generally used to fill the “parentheses”, pitted acne scars, smooth lip lines, plump lips and smooth wrinkles.
How long do fillers last? Hyaluronic Acid fillers typically last 9-12 months, but once again depends on how quick your body metabolizes it.
Fillers and Botox, if performed correctly, can look completely natural and leave people wondering how you’re looking so fresh faced, but not so unnatural that it’s obvious what you’ve had done- and isn’t that what we all want?
