What is Preventative Botox?

The fountain of youth may not exist, but science has gotten pretty darn close. There are plenty of products and treatments available that can help reverse or even stop the signs of aging. One of the most popular treatments is Botox.

Botox uses botulinum toxin injected into the skin to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The toxin—that’s not toxic or harmful to the body—paralyzes the muscles, so they are more relaxed, creating less wrinkling and creasing in the skin.

There are two main types of Botox that we can help you with at Colair Beauty Lounge and Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ: preventative Botox and corrective Botox. Both do well in an effort to increase anti-aging and both contain their own properties depending on the solution you want.

What Is Preventative Botox?

One of the major preventative Botox benefits is that it prevents wrinkles before they set deep into the skin. The key is to get the treatment early before the face has many visible wrinkles or fine lines.

Preventative Botox uses the botulinum toxin to relax the muscles in the face. These paralyzed muscles prevent the skin from creasing and forming fine lines or wrinkles.

Before having the procedure, you’ll have a consultation with one of our registered nurses at Colair, where you’ll discuss possible side effects and aftercare instructions. During the Botox process, the specialist will identify the facial muscles to apply the Botox. The preventative Botox process takes only ten to thirty minutes.

How often do you need to do it? Preventative Botox isn’t something you do only once. It often takes a few sessions to yield initial results, and you’ll need to maintain the effects after the first visit.

When can you see results? It can take up to two weeks to see any initial changes. On average, it takes ten to twelve weeks for patients to see their desired results. And to maintain the results, you should get treatments about three to four times a year.

How much does it cost? On average, preventative Botox costs between $250 and $500 per session. The price depends on how many areas need to be treated as well as the dose required per injection.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This?

Firstly, the FDA has approved Botox for patients older than eighteen. For those looking to use Botox to prevent aging, many people get their first treatment in their mid-twenties.

Technically, you can receive Botox treatments in your early twenties, but at that time, it’s unlikely that wrinkles have formed or set into the skin. Preventative Botox decreases the chance of having wrinkles in the future.

Who should get preventative botox? Anyone who wants who’s looking to maintain their youth and fight wrinkles before they start.

Why You Should Consider Preventative Botox 

Taking the preventative approach is easy the solution to stop early lines from becoming wrinkles. Starting Botox early, before wrinkles have the chance to set in, reduces the chance of having wrinkles in the future. You’re also less likely to have deep-set wrinkles.

You should consider getting preventative Botox fillers in your twenties because not only can it prevent the development of deep static facial lines, but it may also prevent wrinkles altogether. You also may save on high Botox costs down the line because there won’t be as many wrinkles to fight. 

What Is Corrective Botox?

Corrective Botox has a similar goal as preventative Botox: to fight against the signs of aging, wrinkles, and deep lines. But corrective Botox is used when those signs have aging have already set into the skin.

The main goal of corrective Botox is to soften or make the lines disappear. The procedure makes the skin taut, which helps smooth it out. This is especially helpful when those deeper creases begin to set in.

Botox and fillers can also help with volume loss and thin skin as you age. The older we get, the thinner our skin becomes, not only making wrinkles more prominent but also causing us to lose the youthful plumpness our skin once had. Sagging skin may also become a concern.

Botox and fillers can combat these issues. Botox fights the fine lines and wrinkles, while corrective fillers can help add plumpness back to areas like our cheeks, marionette lines or lips.

The process between both versions of Botox is similar, where you’ll be in a professional medical room while one of our registered nurses injects the treatment. The whole process only takes ten to thirty minutes.

As for maintenance, you should receive a series of treatments about every twelve to sixteen weeks to maintain your results. The cost typically ranges between $250 and $600 at Colair depending on the location you need and the amount of Botox needed to correct the wrinkles.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This?

Those looking for corrective Botox treatments are better for people who already have deep-set wrinkles or fine lines on their skin. Most people begin seeking corrective Botox treatments in their mid to late thirties and is an increasingly popular treatment for those in their forties, fifties, and sixties. While there isn’t an upper age limit, health risks associated with advanced ages may make Botox not the best option.

When Corrective Is a More Appropriate Option

Corrective Botox is the more appropriate option if your skin is already showing signs of aging. Consider this if you have:

  • Fine lines 
  • Wrinkles 
  • Sagging skin
  • Loss of volume on your face and neck

This version can also be more appropriate if you’ve had unhealthy habits surrounding your skin, such as smoking, frequent use of tanning beds, and overexposure to the sun without using protective measures. All of these can lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines that Botox can then treat.

Reverse the Signs of Aging With Botox

Who says growing old gracefully can’t come with a little Botox? If you’re looking to reverse or prevent the signs of aging, you can do that with Botox. Both corrective and preventative Botox are great ways to help your skin look younger.

Pamper yourself and allow your inner beauty to shine through. At Colair Beauty Lounge and Med Spa, you can reverse and prevent signs of aging through Botox injections customized to your needs. Contact us to schedule a free consultation at our med spa in Gilbert to start your beauty journey.

So if you’re a 20-something and thinking that Botox isn’t something you need to consider for decades, think again. It’s basic beauty-instincts to follow certain anti-aging and preventive measures like wearing sunscreen, applying night cream and drinking water, but imagine altogether halting the development of wrinkles before they even start?

So, what is Botox? Contrary to what many believe—Botox isn’t shipped from heaven— rather, it is Botulinum toxin type A, a wonder drug made to smooth out lines by preventing muscles from contracting. Believe it or not Botox has been around for 100 years. Initially approved for treating eyelid spasms, Botox then went on to be used for bladder spasms and excessive sweating, then in 2002, it was approved by the FDA for treatment of wrinkles on the upper face. Located in Agritopia, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is your one-stop skincare destination and our experts are ready to answer your questions about Botox and other med spa services.  If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of Botox or have questions, please do not hesitate to visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Guide to Injectables without Looking Overdone 

We believe in the magic of injectables at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. They’re an easy, effective, and extremely versatile way to achieve whatever look you’re after. But one main concern folks who are considering injectables have is “I don’t want to look overdone”.

We completely understand this worry. You see and hear a lot of horror stories about folks taking injectables too far. Most clients want to achieve a more youthful look, but along the lines of “refreshed”. The first and foremost difference, you’ll be in the hands of medical professionals. Our med spa is under the direction of an actual doctor. Your treatment will be applied by a registered nurse. This type of experience, training, and insight should put your mind at ease.

Start slow. It’s ok to begin your injectables journey slow. We’ll suggest you start with a conservative amount and go from there. It takes 14 days to see the full results, but we can always add more. And in the worst-case scenario, we can actually inject a substance that dissolves the Botox.

If you’re shopping around for a provider, please please realize that if the pricing is too good to be true, it probably is. The world of shifty injectors is very big. Don’t let amazing pricing sway you from reason. There are so many unregulated products out there that are dangerous, and actually life-threatening.

When you meet with the RN at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, Michelle will walk you through all of the different injectables and what they do. You’ll want to voice your desired look or outcome, and we’ll be able to match you with the right product. There’s something for everyone, and no matter how deep the wrinkle, we can fill it.

So if you’ve been thinking about getting an injectable, but worried about looking overdone, allow us to meet with you and walk you through the process. For more information about injectables or any of med spa treatments, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

Post Chemical Peel Tips 

A good chemical peel can do wonders. In the hands of a trained professional, a series of skin-friendly chemicals are applied to your skin to help with skin texture, reduce pore size and lighten pigmentation. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we offer a few similar treatments, including our VI Chemical Peels.

Here’s a few great tips for after your peel, so you can get the best results from your treatment.

No Touchy: One of the biggest battles after your chemical peel will be fighting the urge to scratch, pull or pick at your skin. Doing this can lead to scarring, which is counterproductive.

More Moisture: You’ll want to ditch your usual skincare routine. Moisturizer and sunscreen are all you’ll need. Make sure you’re applying face cream throughout the day which helps with the peeling process.

Flaky Fashion: If you’re not wanting to look like you survived a snow storm, avoid dark clothes whilst peeling. Go for something light, because dead skin loves dark clothing and that isn’t cute.

Want to hear more about the benefits of chemical peels and the facials at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa? We’d love to have you in our incredible Gilbert, Arizona location and show you around. Please swing by or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Smoking and Straws: Lips Biggest Enemies

Few aesthetic aging signs are as damning as line around the lips or smoker’s lines. But the worst part is, you can develop them even if you’ve never picked up a cig. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa knows bad lines and wrinkles happen to good people, and we can help.

Not unlike lines around the eyes or forehead, lip lines care caused by muscle movement. Repetitive moment often results in permanent lines, that become deeper with time. Smoker’s lines are caused by puckering of the lips. Though far less worse than smoking, using a straw creates the same muscle movement that causes said lines.

If you’ve managed to avoid smoker’s lines around the mouth, prevention is everything. Make sure to ditch the cigarettes, straws and wear plenty of SPF. Sun exposure is going to expose the skin cells to damage and effect the appearance of fine lines. Keep the skin around the lips well hydrated.

Perhaps you haven’t been able to dodge these pesky lines, but fear not! Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to help at whatever stage your fine lines may be at. We’ve got two very success options to treat lip lines. One being Restylane Silk, a injectable that smooths out the lines around your lips. It’s FDA-approved and made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body produces naturally.

Another option is our PRP Treatment. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and it’s an incredible treatment for all types of skin concerns, especially lip lines. How does it work? Our registered nurse draws your blood, separates the blood and then performs microneedling on the targeted areas. The PRP is applied to the face and absorbs into the face, increasing collagen production.

So if you’re suffering from smoker’s lines, or maybe just straw lines, Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona can help. Come by for a free consultation with our RN, or give us a call at (480) 912-5325.

Four Wellness Treatments to try in your 20s

There’s probably a trillion things you wish you could tell your 20-something self; skip that, do this, the pizza is gonna catch up to you, etc. But what specifically would you tell yourself about skincare and self-care? I think we could all collectively agree that we wish we would have worn more sunscreen, but at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we’ve got some pointers for 20-somethings. 

Preventive Botox 

Botox before I have deep wrinkles? I know, it seems like a crazy concept. But those cute fine lines on your face today can be tomorrow’s deep forehead canals. Preventive Botox is a wonderful solution to soften the effects of aging before it even begins by freezing those wrinkle-causing facial expressions with Botox. 

Facials 

After we’ve come out of the damning days of having acne, most of us are terrified of hydrating our faces or risking any kind of breakout, but that’s all backwards. Spending time getting facials not only hydrates your skin (which gives our oil glands a timeout), but also can help clear up congestion in your pores, minimizing the chances of future breakouts. 

Product Investment 

Oh the things you blew your money on when you were younger. There’s no better way to spend your money than investing it back into yourself, especially your skin. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we’re so happy to offer SkinMedica. Not your drugstore kind of product, SkinMedica is backed by science to give your face the best results, and ultimately fighting aging. 

IV Nutrient Therapy 

Surely, in your 20s you put your body through all types of challenges, including how can one human drink before death and other strenuous activities. Wouldn’t you have loved a treatment that softened the blow of hangovers? Alas, our IV Nutrient Therapy does just that and more. A direct line of vitamins and hydration, IV Nutrient Therapy assists with all types of bodily issues. 

Regardless if you’re a 20-something or further down the road of life, it’s not too late to incorporate any of the above treatments into your life. Feeling and looking good doesn’t take a backseat at any point in your life. For more info about any of these services, or how we can help you feel and look your best, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

What is a Brazilian Blowout? 

Unless you’ve been hiding out in a cave for the last few years, you’ve undoubtedly have overheard some rave-review about a  Brazilian blowout. It’s not some kind of cocktail or south american steakhouse, but actually a life-changing hair treatment for those suffering from frizzy locks. The incredible results make it a must at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, but we want to give you a little more information. 

Frizz and unmanageable hair doesn’t discriminate, happening to the best of us, and even those who are religious conditioners and product obsessed. Brazilian Blowouts eliminates frizz and promotes intense shine by way of liquid keratin. The treatment bonds to your hair to create a intense layer around each strand, sealing the cuticle and soothes frizz. After you’ve gotten the Brazilian blowout, your hair will essentially have it’s own armor, making it more resilient to heat styling. The process to apply the Brazilian blowout takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but think of the time you’ll save by not having to fight frizz in the mornings. Given that you keep up your Brazilian blowout with the appropriate products (we can help!), your treatment should last up to four months, or possibly longer. 

Imagine, finally having a long-lasting solution to frizzy hair and all of the energy you’ll save by not having to wake up half and hour earlier to straighten your hair. For more information about Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s Brazilian Blowouts or other salon services, please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Chlorine’s Combat on Good Hair

Living in Arizona, we literally construct our schedules around when we’re going to be in the pool. If you’re not already swimming, you’re thinking about the next time you can jump in and cool off, but did you know that pool-time can actually cause havoc on your hair? Chlorine not only dulls your hair but also has a damaging effect, and especially to color-treated hair. Blondes beware; chlorine can have an especially damming effect on your hair and even give it a green tinge. If you can’t get your head above water this summer, try a swim cap or just rinse your with filtered water prior to jumping in. One trick we’ve learned to love, is taking our Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask, a magical mixture of tea complex that penetrates the hair follicle, and lathering some on before we have our pool day, so it can soak in deeply and reverse damaged hair. The trick really boils down to saturating the hair with something, so very little chlorine will be able to enter the shaft, as our hair is sponge-like and will soak up anything. 

If you’ve read this tip a little too late, and are noticing your hair is on the crispy side from all of the swimming you’ve done, we can still help. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa has multiple options to get your thirsty hair back into shape. Our Brazilian Blowout Split End Repair Treatment is made just for said issue, as it seals and nourishes split ends, and gives your hair a sleek and healthy look. Also, have you might have heard of the benefits of collagen for your face, but for your hair? Yes, our Demi- Permanent Conditioner is a collagen-based product that deeply conditions and replenishes dry and damaged hair. So, go ahead and take a dip, we’ve got all of your hair-rehab treatments taken care of at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. For more information on how we can help with all of your haircare concerns and other salon services, please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment for Hair Loss

If you’ve been following the hottest beauty trends this year, you’ve surely heard of the PRP Facial or commonly known as the “vampire” facial for it’s bloody Kim Kardashian spotlight. Essentially, the PRP Facial uses your own plasma along with micro needling to help give you a glowing complexion. But in recent news surrounding PRP, this treatment is going beyond faces and actually helping those with thinning hair.

The growth factors found in your own plasma act as a kind of messengers, signaling skin cells to function and ultimately help stimulate activity in the follicles to help promote hair growth. The process starts with a easy and simple blood draw from Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s registered nurse, where they’ll draw your blood and separate the plasma from the red blood cells by way of a machine that spins the liquid quickly. From there, the PRP will be injected into the spots on your scalp where you’d like to see hair growth.

So if your mane isn’t as thick as it once was or you just want to maintain what you’ve got, the PRP scalp treatment is an excellent choice for both men and women. If you’re living without the hair of your dreams, please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.
