As I sat watching reruns of Keeping Up With the Kardashians—yes, shameful, I know—I watched Kim get Botox done. Uh, not only did it look painful having needles stuck into the skin, but I watched her swell up within a day. The Botox made Kim K. look like she got beat up, and I couldn’t help but wonder if Botox is really worth it. I mean, yes, I want to look young for as long as I can, but at what expense?
To Botox, or Not to Botox, that is the question…
What is Botox?
Botox is an injection into the skin of a toxin called Botulinum, which is a neurotoxic protein, produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In cosmetic applications, the injection of botulinum toxin is used to prevent or eliminate the development of wrinkles for roughly 3-4 months by paralyzing facial muscles. Results are usually seen within in 3-5 days, but can take up to 2 weeks before the results are seen.
Side effects of Botox:
Botox is a toxin injected into your skin, which means that is can paralyze the wrong facial muscles, cause drooping eyelids, swelling near injection site, bruising, blurred vision, etc. The toxic results can last anywhere from 6 weeks to months.
Your Future With Botox:
Now, I want you to imagine going to a Christmas party and seeing all of your friends and family. Sounds like a great time, right? Wrong. So, your best friend just told the funniest joke and everyone is laughing…but you. Why? Because the Botox you just got 4 days ago to hide those laugh lines went horribly wrong and paralyzed your face. Your best friend just stares at you blankly wondering why you aren’t laughing at her joke, but little does she know that you just made the worst decision of your life. Ugh.
What to do instead of Botox:
At Bellezza Spa, we believe that laughter is a necessity and also quite wonderful for your mental health. So, in honor of that beautiful smile you have, we offer an Intraceutical Oxygen Facial with Infusion. This 60-minute facial is quite popular amongst the smart celebrities who want to remain youthful, but not paralyzed.
What is an Intraceutical Oxygen Facial?
It is an innovative breakthrough in beauty enhancement that combats signs and symptoms of aging at the source. Our unique treatment uses hyperbaric oxygen to infuse a combination of antioxidant and Hyaluronic Acids into the skin.
Our 3 Part Combination:
- Treatment utilizes oxygen under light pressure to provide your skin with a signature combination of anti-aging ingredients while simultaneously cooling the skin.
- A cutting-edge serum containing Hyaluronic Acid combined with a unique blend of vitamins and antioxidants is applied to your skin. This blend immediately hydrates the skin, firms, and drastically reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
- The finishing touch is layering special products that supplement and maximize the benefits of the treatment for lasting effects.
To Botox or not to Botox, that is the question…
Uh, hello, I think we all know what the answer is to that question. Let’s skip the Botox and head to the spa for an Intraceutical Oxygen Facial. Last I checked oxygen is more natural than a toxin injected into your skin. In my opinion, it is clearly a no brainer.
