The perception that medical spas, or ‘med spas’, are exclusive to women is a longstanding myth that needs to be dispelled. At The Gallery of Aesthetics, we have seen a significant shift in this trend over the years. Yes, it’s undeniable that women make up a majority of our clients, but the landscape is changing rapidly. Today, more men than ever are walking through our doors, eager to explore the benefits of our aesthetic services.

Over the past 20 years, we have seen a remarkable increase in the number of male clients. This trend reflects a broader societal change as men become more comfortable pursuing treatments that were once deemed feminine. Men, like women, desire to feel confident in their skin, and we are here to support that.

I am a board-certified aesthetician with specialization in Bioidentical Hormone therapies.

Debunking Botox: Common Questions Answered

Botox, though a common name in the aesthetic industry, is often surrounded by questions and misconceptions. With my extensive training in aesthetics, specialization in Bioidentical Hormone therapies, collaboration with Biote, and a board certification, I felt it was essential to address these common questions.

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. This interruption causes the muscle to temporarily lose its ability to contract, thereby reducing wrinkles.

Botox is quite versatile and can treat multiple areas of the face including forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and even bunny lines on the nose. Botox can also be used for a brow lift, giving a youthful and refreshed look.

The treatment itself is usually swift and straightforward. A small, fine needle is used to administer the Botox, some patients say they only feel a quick sting, similar to an insect bite. Numbing cream is also available to enhance comfort during the process.

The question of pain is subjective, but most people describe Botox injections as minimally uncomfortable. The pain is often compared to a quick bug bite or pinprick.

Results can typically be seen within a few days to two weeks post-treatment. The duration of these effects varies, but generally, Botox lasts between three to four months.

The appropriate age to start Botox varies from person to person and depends on individual skin type, lifestyle, and personal preference. A consultation with a professional can help determine the optimal time to start Botox treatments.

Lastly, let’s address the safety of Botox. When administered by a trained professional, Botox is considered safe. At The Gallery of Aesthetics, all treatments are performed by fully licensed and vastly experienced aestheticians.

It’s crucial to remember that the decision to proceed with Botox or any other treatment should be made in consultation with a professional. At The Gallery of Aesthetics, we’re here to help you make an informed choice and to assist you on your journey to feeling confident and shining brightly!
