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.

How Often Should You Get Botox Injections?

You’ve probably wondered how often you should get Botox once you complete your first treatment.The quick answer that we recommend is every 12 weeks. This anti-aging treatment is a miracle for many looking to counteract the effects of getting older. Botox is everyone’s favorite weapon against fine lines and wrinkles for its quick results that require little to no downtime. Read on about Botox to learn who should get it, and how often to get filler injections.

Before and after of Botox treatment

How Does Botox Work?

Before diving into the frequency and how often you should get Botox, let’s take a look at how it works. Botox is an anti-aging treatment that blocks the nerves in and around your forehead that prevents you from moving those muscles. This allows for a more refreshed and softer looking face. Botox is a completely safe and FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that focuses especially on forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes

Who Should Get Botox? 

The beauty of Botox is that it’s never too late or early (for adults) to start tackling wrinkles. Think it’s too soon for you? Think again. Preventative Botox is a thing and it’s something you should consider. Starting Botox before you actually have wrinkles and lines allows you to cease motions in the muscles that cause the lines themselves to form. Thus solving the problem before it becomes one.

How Often Should I Get Botox? 

All good things must come to an end, or in this case, reapplied. Botox isn’t permanent and follow-ups are recommended to keep that youthful appearance. For best results, we’d like to see you at least every 90 days. The biggest reason to come in every three months is so the creases and lines don’t deepen with extended muscle movement. Again, the notion is that we can stop the muscle motion that actually causes the wrinkle. 

If you’re worried about looking “overdone” or plastic-like, that’s the beauty of seeing a professional at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. One of our registered nurses will be able to examine your face, muscle structure and strength to ensure you get the most natural looking results as possible. 

How to Avoid New Wrinkles? 

As we mentioned, getting Botox on a regular basis is going to improve the look of wrinkles, but also stop new ones from forming and prevent existing ones from getting worse. There’s a few things to keep in mind for the sake of your skin and not creating new wrinkles. Wear an SPF (at least 30) every day to prevent UV damage, avoid smoking and eat healthy.

Benefits of Botox for Crow’s Feet

The wonders of Botox never cease to amaze us at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. This miracle-injectable is best known for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead. As time goes on, we’re learning more ways to apply Botox. Our most recent discovery? Crow’s feet. 

What is Crow’s Feet?

Dysport crows feet

Those pesky lines that gather and deepen in the corners of our eyes, crow’s feet are difficult to address and treat. Crow’s feet appear when the skin loses elasticity and collagen, this happens as we grow older and just from genetics. And though they’re often referred to as “laughing lines”, they’re anything but funny. 

There are a few reasons why crow’s feet appear. Repeated muscle movement through raising your brows, squinting and frowning cause facial lines. 

Often folks attempt to correct crow’s feet with miracle creams and moisturizers, and though hydration and UV protection is important, there’s likely no product that really makes a difference.   

Unlike most of the lines and wrinkles on your face, crow’s feet tend to pop up earlier and don’t discriminate against younger people. It’s not uncommon to see them appear on folks in their 20s. But Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona is here to help with Botox. 

Botox: The Medical Miracle

Botox is used to stop the nerve signals and ceasing movement in certain muscles. This not only stops creasing from getting worse, but it also smooths out the lines and wrinkles. Botox is extremely safe, easy to administer and there’s virtually no down time. 

So what can you expect when treating crow’s feet with Botox? Going into this, you should know that Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa only works with actual medical professionals for applying injections like Botox. You can rest easy that you’re in the hands of a seasoned and skilled pro.

One of our staff, a registered nurse, will talk you through the process of Botox for crow’s feet and examine your face to align expectations. The treatment is relatively fast, only taking about 10 minutes. With a very fine needle, the RN will inject around your eyes which relaxes the muscle and smooths the skin out. 

What to Expect After Crow’s Feet Treatment

After your treatment you’ll be able to go right home. You can wear makeup and even wash your face. Though we’d ask you not to rub the skin around your eyes or hit the gym and partake in a lot of activity. You’ll likely not see results for a few days, but results typically last for four months or even longer.

Want to learn more about treating crow’s feet with Botox? Visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa for a free consultation or allow us to answer any questions you might have. We can be reached at (480) 618-7616.

Skin’s Summer Survival Guide

There’s just something about summer that makes even the most prude skin-fanatics lose all their inhibitions and regular skincare routines. Maybe it’s the ocean air, kid’s out of school or perhaps just the bottle of Rosè. But, it’s vital that you keep your cool and remain sunscreed-ed and more during summer break. Below are few tips to fighting the sun this season from your friends at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. 

Sunscreen: Yes, we’re gonna state the obvious. But sunscreen is the best, and possibly the simplest way to prevent sun damage (I.e sunspots, wrinkles, cancer, etc). Mix it with your favorite cream and reapply every few hours. 

Don’t Just Spray It: Yes, those spray sunscreens work, but according to dermatologist, folks aren’t rubbing it in properly. Leaving you with streaky protection. Spray the section of your body until it glistens, and then give it a proper rub-in. 

Get Shady: Sure, sunscreen is gonna do it’s thing, but why stop there? Get glamorous with a giant hat, long sleeve shirt and oversized shades to protect the skin around your eyes. Think vampire in the Hamptons, people. 

Burned: So you’ve disregarded all of this and you’re looking like a lobster? The first thing you want to do is stay hydrated. UV light causes inflammation, and staying hydrated helps repair the skin barrier more quickly. Also, don’t pick any blisters and pile on the aloe. 

Too Little, Too Late: Maybe you’re reading this article a few years too late and you’re seeing some spots, lines and wrinkles. We’ve got the magic for that. The sun is our skin’s biggest enemy, and through treatments like PRP Facials, Botox and some of our amazing skincare products, we can help reverse the damage that’s already done. 

If you’d like to learn more about how to keep your skin safe this summer, or what we can do for preexisting sun damage, allow our registered nurse at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa take a look at you and answer any of your questions. Please visit or call us at (480) 912-5325.

Ways to Look Younger for Your High-School Reunion

Few life events summon the need to look your best than a high school reunion. Seeing those friends and foes of your adolescent days, 10+ years after graduation, can be a tall order of stress to impress. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we’ve got solutions that not only help with all of your anti-aging desires, but provide results quickly. So, if your reunion is right around the corner and you’re in need of some magic to turn back the clock, here’s some suggestions. 

Botox: 

Truly, there isn’t anything better to tackle those fine lines and wrinkles than Botox. Not only is it extremely effective, easy to administer, but you’ll see results from Botox shortly after your appointment. If you’re main concern are lines and wrinkles, especially on your forehead, this is your best bet. 

PRP Facial: 

Maybe you’re just wanting to up your glow game? As we age, our skin can look a little dull and lifeless. Not what we’re wanting when we reunite with our high school sweetheart. Alas, our PRP Facial is the best way to not only achieve a glowing and youthful appearance, but it’ll also jumpstart your collagen production. 

Xeomin and Kybella:

Oh the cursed turkey neck. That bit of fat below the chin that you just can not shake. As we age, our double chin can take a serious turn for the worse, regardless of how well we eat or work out. Lucky for us, there’s a solution, Kybella. It’s injected under the chin, and unlike other injectables, it lasts! Once Kybella is administered it actually destroys the fat cells. Few things can fumble our big night out as much as frown lines. Even when we’re having the time of our life, frown lines can kill the vibe. Luckily, Xeomin, is an incredible treatment that blocks the release of certain chemicals that cause muscle contraction so the frown lines are softened.

Dermaplaning: 

If you’re in need of a seriously quick boost to your look, dermaplaning, a treatment that removes the dead skin from your face, is a great option. By scraping off those dull skin cells from your face, you’ll not only have a fast glow, but your skin care will be able to soak in more deeply, allowing more hydration.

Dysport: 

Perhaps you’re new to the world of injections and med spa services, and wanting to make a gentle jump into the anti-aging treatment game. Dysport is a fantastic option, not unlike Botox, it’s designed to address wrinkles and fine lines. Dyposrt has a quicker onset and usually doesn’t last as long as Botox, so you’ll be able to test the waters before making a more permanent choice.  

These are just a few options that can help you look your best for that high school reunion or any other big day. If you’d like to lean more about our anti-aging treatments, injectables or med spa services, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.

Do you need Botox? Four Signs You Do

These days it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t dipped their toe in the BOTOX pool. That neighbor who looks suddenly ‘refreshed’, the guy at work who took years off his face in a few days and that one cousin who seems to be tricking time with each family gathering. They’ve probably have gotten the memo and saw someone for BOTOX. So, is it time for you to come to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa  to do the same? We’ve got four signs that’ll help you decide. 

1. Forehead Lines

Have you noticed your forehead is looking way too much like a treasure map? Lines and X’s, but no treasure. Forehead furrows or frown lines are one of the first places we start to visibly age on our face. 

2. Smile Lines

Crow’s feet, those pesky lines that form around our mouths. Crow’s feet become most intense when we work the muscles around your eyes. BOTOX blocks this by relaxing the muscles that cause crow feet to appear. 

3. Got TMJ?

TMJ or Temporomadibular when the temporomandibular joint is where the skull and jaw bone connect, acting as kind of hinge for your mouth, are out of alignment. TMJ can cause earaches, pain when you chew and even a change in how your teeth fit together. Our and highly-trained registered nurse injects BOTOX into masseter muscle, allowing the muscle to relax and help with pain caused by persistent grinding and clenching. 

4. You Don’t Have Wrinkles

So, you’re a fresh 20-something who feels like you’re light years away from needing BOTOX? WRONG. Preventive BOTOX is a thing and it works. Within one study, contributors stated that it’s “rarely too early”. In the study on BOTOX, it shows that frown lines, forehead furrows and crows’ feet are caused by repetitive folding of the skin from normal expressions and if you slow down the use of those muscles in your early adult life, the lines never develop.

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.

Restylane for Hands

As we age, we lose volume in the back of our hands, giving the appearance of tendons, veins and wrinkles to be more pronounced. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa we want to address all of your anti-aging concerns, not just those to do with your face. It seems like most of our focus when it comes to anti-aging efforts lands above the shoulders, focusing on wrinkles and lines on the face, and as we go along, we notice our youthful-looking faces do not match our hands. Restylane is an incredible product that allows us to combat the effects of time, and can take years off of our faces and now hands too. 

By using Restylane, we’re able to actually fill in the backside of your hands safely and effectively, providing a more youthful and fuller appearance. Hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our bodies, provides fullness and elasticity and as we age, depletes, causing a loss of volume and therefore wrinkles. Restylane has been used 30 million times worldwide and is one of our favorite products, because it’s not only safe, but also provides incredible results. If you’re wanting to extend a youthful appearance not only to your face, but also your hands, please visit or call Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa at (480) 912-5325.
