For many, the saying “don’t knock it until you try it” does not apply when it comes to Botox. We’ve heard the horror stories and witnessed the debatable results when celebs go overboard like 10 procedures in one day, Heidi-style, but done properly and within reason, Botox has proven to be a great, successful “lift” for the average woman. We sent Rosanne of Beyond, Beauty Basics to SmoothMED for a ten minute Non-Surgical Eyebrow Lift, and also to fill in some of the lines on her forehead. She admits that in her younger years she was anything but kind to her skin, ignoring warnings from mom, too much tanning, and other bad habits.
At her consultation Dr. Berdy, owner and medical director explained the truth about Botox:
Botox is the brand name that represents the protein (botulinum toxin) that is produced by a bacteria known as Clostridium Botulinum. In large doses, this protein causes “Botulism,” a paralytic illness most often seen in cases of food poisoning. It was discovered however; that in small dosages, this protein could be used in cosmetic medicine to treat facial creases, folds and wrinkles. Botox can also be used in non-cosmetic medicine to treat excessive underarm sweating, migraine headaches, chronic pain, esophagus problems, lazy eye syndrome and in some cases, severe clinical depression due to aesthetic and body image distortion mental disorders.
The opportunity to erase years of negligence came knocking and she went for it. Click HERE to read her review of the final results and check the video below.
Also, if you recall, last week during Spa Week Michelle also tried out the Botox Brow Lift at SmoothMED, and she woke up this morning, 6 days later, and noticed the difference. Dr. Berdy had said it would take 5-7 days. Take a look at the after (click HERE for the before and the full procedure… can you notice a difference? Would you try it yourself?
