Disclosure: I am part of CosmetiCare’s Mom Ambassador Program. I received medspa services in order to write my review. All opinions are 100% my own. When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see? We’re all going to age eventually and basically have 2 options: embrace it and just age gracefully or be pro-active about the whole thing. In my opinion, both of these are perfectly fine options and it’s a personal choice that every individual has to make. Personally, I’m going to do whatever I can to fight this aging process. I’m going down with a fight!
Thank goodness for CosmetiCare, Orange County’s leading cosmetic surgery center and medspa! They help thousands of clients each year to love the way they look. With a motto like “Love The Way You Look“, I know they totally “get” me!
CosmetiCare is located in beautiful Newport Beach, California. (Yes, it’s where some of The Real Housewives of Orange County had procedures done.) They offer a variety of both surgical and non-surgical procedures. As part of their CosmetiCare Mom Ambassador Program, I’m excited to try out some of the anti-aging treatments available in the medspa and share my thoughts and results with you, my readers! Some of my girlfriends are also participating in this program and we’ll all be sharing about their experiences on CosmetiCare’s site, right here.
The CosmetiCare medspa is an amazing place. Nowadays, it’s more common for women (and men) to be seek out non-invasive, non-surgical options, as opposed to cosmetic surgery, to keep them looking their best. On my first visit, I received a private, one on one consultation. All of the consultants at CosmetiCare are highly trained professionals that listen to the clients and figure out a custom treatment plan, according to what the client is hoping to achieve.
I shared with my consultant that the wrinkles in my forehead area and between my eyes really bothered me. I also told her how much I disliked my crow’s feet. I shared how frustrating it was for me to take any pictures outside without my sunglasses on, because I’d always photograph so wrinkly or look like I was frowning. She suggested I try some Botox. I was totally onboard for trying Botox. I’d heard friends talk about getting it done before and now it was my turn.
Ok so let’s talk about Botox. I never realized how much of a difference Botox can actually make on your face. I thought my crows feet were a lost cause. I look back and think about all of that high school tanning and cringe now!
It’s a good idea before getting any injections, like Botox, to avoid alcohol and Ibuprofin during the days prior. This helps minimize bleeding and bruising. Your technician will most likely provide you with an ice pack to numb the area she’s going to inject, a little bit. The injections don’t “hurt”, they’re just a series of tiny pokes in each area. They feel weird but there’s honestly nothing to be afraid of. I brought a water bottle to squeeze while getting the injections.
I received Botox in my forehead, in between my brows, on the outside area of my eyes, to target my crow’s feet, and even some above each eyebrow, to help lift the area some. The procedure was over pretty quickly too. After you get Botox, you can usually see the results within 5-7 days afterwards. I can tell a huge difference in my face now and am so pleased with my results. If you look at the picture I posted above, it was taken outside, in the daylight and is unedited and has no filters on it. The area between my brows and my forehead used to wrinkle up if I was outside without sunglasses. The Botox has worked a miracle in that area. I was told that it should last about 6-9 months.
If you’ve ever been curious about Botox or any other injectables, I would recommend you just make an appointment with one of the medspa consultants at CosmetiCare and go have all of your questions answered. Most likely, you’ll want to schedule and do it right away after you meet with them because that’s how it happened for me! They say you’re only as old as you feel! Thanks to CosmetiCare, I don’t feel as old anymore!
