Aging Gracefully (kind of)

Just in this past year I feel like I am starting to notice the signs of aging. I swear my grey hairs have tripled over the past year! And the fine lines are popping out everywhere. I want to age “gracefully”, with a little help along the way πŸ™‚

I have been taking some steps this year to try to make my skin look and feel its best! I have talked a lot about facials. I think no matter what age you are, facials are a great rejuvenator for the skin. If you have it in your budget to do it, I highly recommend it.

I have two treatments that have been game changers for me. Today I am talking aboutΒ Botox. I just started doing this atΒ Bare Med Spa in the last few months, and I have to say I really do love it. I was noticing the deepest lines in between my eyebrows. That is a super easy area to fix with a few botox injections. My first botox injection was in December, and we went very conservative. So, when March rolled around I was ready to do a little bit more. I also wanted them to touch up around the side of my eyes where I was seeing tiny lines.

Β I worked with Mandy at the Bare Med Spa at the Nall Valley shops (5416 W 151st St Leawood, KS 66224). She was awesome. She spent time mapping out my face, where I was getting lines with expression when I would smile or frown. She also gave me a little ice pack before she injected which helps numb the area. I think what she did looks very natural and not too “full”. You don’t ever want them to do too much, a more natural look is always the way to go

Botox is quick and easy and the pain is minor. There is just a quick stinging feeling that quickly goes away. The first week you can feel “heaviness” in the area where they injected, and some people experience headaches at first. I think it takes a few days to get used to the feeling of Β that area being stiffer than normal. Some people also bruise, but that goes away after a few days to a week.

It really is a great way to attack those annoying lines and wrinkles. I can’t say enough good things about it! To make an appointment with Mandy at Bare Med Spa contact them here:Β P: (913) 851-1455
