My First Botox Treatment

September 4, 2016

I am just months away from turning the BIG 4 0, yikes! Too be honest, I am far from freaking out on my 40th birthday that will soon be here, but what concerns me the most about aging is my skin. When you go from your 20s to your 30s, your skin changes. You begin to noticed frown lines, sagging skin, dark under eye circles, smile lines, and forehead lines. My forehead lines are biggest concern at the moment; by them being soften up, it will give my skin a younger more flawless look.

With the power of social media and a love for skin care and making women (and men) look and feel their best, I have joined forces with Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez of Eterna Cosmetic Surgery to get my clients looking their best. While I take care of the esthetic services and facials, Dr. Hernandez can perform the more invasive services such as Botox, fillers, eye and face lifts and many more. I was always a bit eerie on getting a Botox treatment done, but because Dr. Hernandez not only made me feel safe and comfortable, her educating me on the anti-aging procedure made me feel at ease to finally get it done.


Before Botox

Stop Lines and Wrinkles in Their Tracks: Botulinum toxin injections like Botox (And Dysport) have become an extremely popular option for men and women who want to ward off the early signs of aging. By relaxing the underlying facial muscles and softening wrinkle-causing expressions, Botox and Dysport are able to slow the aging process and restore a naturally youthful appearance.

How Can Botox and Dysport Help You? Every smile, frown, and every expression in between eventually adds up to the formation of dynamic lines and wrinkles. Crow’s feet and frown lines are just two of the most common problems men and women have with their appearance due to these repeated muscle contractions. Botox and Dysport are specially formulated to help put an end to these signs of aging without the need for surgery—both are offered professionally at Dr. Hernandez’s cosmetic surgery practice in San Antonio. Dr. Hernandez works with her injectables patients to create a fully personalized treatment plan. Her experienced and artistic approach to injectable botulinum toxin treatments allows her to provide patients with the younger look they want without appearing overdone or unnatural.

How do Botox and Dysport Work? When carefully injected into the underlying facial muscles, Botox and Dysport work to reduce contractions that cause the formation of lines and wrinkles. Over time, you will notice existing signs of aging begin to fade and the treatment will help to prevent new ones from forming.

Because I am such a baby when it comes to needles, getting injectables was also a concern of mine. But, Dr. Hernandez did a fabulous job. When she was performing my Botox treatment on my forehead area, I felt a slight poke for a couple of seconds and then I was totally fine. There was no pain or anything afterwards. I am extremely happy with how smooth my forehead area looks and will now be keeping up with my Botox treatments. I know with the combination of my monthly facials and Dr. Hernandez’s art of beauty, I will age gracefully. Check out my video of my first Botox treatment below.
