Botox is a popular procedure because of its simple and effective way of reducing lines and wrinkles with no down time. However, you may want to consider having it performed by the nurse who works for the doctor, not the actual doctor. Why? Simply put, in some offices the doctor may not have as much experience as the nurse does because the doctor is seeing patients for various other concerns—not just patients wanting to lessen their wrinkles.
For example: a dermatologist may be busy seeing patients for acne, skin cancer, moles etc. so often times, the doctor may pass the patient off to the nurse for the Botox since it can be performed by a registered nurse…
*Note: Every doctor runs his/her practice differently, so often times the doctor WILL be the only one who performs Botox and in this case, this tip doesn’t apply.
The key to getting the best and most natural-looking results with a Botox procedure is to have it performed by someone with a lot of experience—no matter who it is. (Bonus: if you’re looking to save a few dollars, often times the nurse may charge less than the doctor!)
Scared of needles? Cosmetic companies (such as Renée Rouleau) are embracing new skin care technology that allows you to have a similar result that is risk-free.
Enter Hyaluronic Filling Spheres. This amazing ingredient is formulated to resemble tiny micro sponges that when applied to the surface of the skin, they enter into the lines and wrinkles and penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis. The Hyaluronic Filling Spheres rehydrate with the water in skin, plumping up lines and wrinkles, making them less noticeable. After application, the results last for 10-12 hours.
We recommend Renée Rouleau Instant Line Filler with Vitamin C. Our clients LOVE it and find it works best for fine lines around the eyes and above the upper lip.
Be sure you’re using a good eye cream, too as that can help soften fine lines and wrinkles.
