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 3 months. 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.

Our RN Reveals her Skincare Routine 

If you’re not already aware, when you’re coming to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, you’re not just in the hands of some random professional, but the best in their field. We’re lucky enough to have a registered nurse on staff for all of our med spa services. Meet Michelle Nemchick. With 11 years of ICU and aesthetic nursing experience, she knows a thing or two about skincare. We sit down with Michelle and dish about her favorite skincare products and why she loves them.

“First of all, my job exposes me to a lot of skincare products. I get to test the best of the best. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say my favorite was iS Clinical. If you’re looking for a line of products that actually works, this is it. It’s amazing for all ages, genders and for all types of skin concerns. It’s a better product because of the research and ingredients that go into it.”

Cleanser: “I’m absolutely crazy about the Warming Honey Cleanser. I find most {cleansers} strip my skin, but this luxurious gel not only smells incredible but cleanses deeply, and leaves your skin moisturized.”

Serum: “After I’ve washed my skin, it’s time to slather on a serum. It’s a vital step in my regimen, because it helps seal the moisture in the skin before you apply any kind of cream/ moisturizer. I reach for the Youth Serum, a potion that helps with the signs of aging. My skin suddenly has more bounce and smooths out my skin before makeup.”

Moisturizer: “Right, so living in Arizona it’s vital we load up on hydration for our skin. It doesn’t matter how much Botox we get, if your skin is dry, it’s going to age you terribly. I really enjoy the Reparative Moisture Emulsion for an all-over moisturizer; it’s gonna help protect your skin from environmental aggressors and really work on fine line and wrinkles.”

SPF: “Between your serum and moisturizer, you should wait a minute or so. Brush your teeth, etc and let that good stuff soak in. After I’ve applied my moisturizer in and waited a min, I move onto the most vital part of my routine. SPF isn’t an option. Mom, Dad, Kids, and dog (joking) should wearing SPF Daily. And at least a SPF 30. I opt for the iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50+ because it goes on sheer, light and doesn’t mess with my makeup.”

iS Clinical is available at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ. We’d love to show you this amazing line of products and tell you how it might help with any of your skincare concerns. Please visit are Gilbert, Arizona location or call us at (480) 912-5325.

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.

The Ugly Truth of Counterfeit Botox and How to Avoid It

There’s no way around it, getting Botox or fillers is a big deal. There’s research on trusted sources and the anticipation of getting a long-lasting treatment. And like any important purchase, you’ll more than likely factor in price. Though it might be tempting to go for those unreal deals on Botox, you may be injecting counterfeit botox into your body.

Not just for Louis Vuitton handbags and Gucci glasses, Botox is now being counterfeited. It’s illegally imported into the U.S. market and isn’t obviously vetted by the FDA. So, what are some of the risks associated with fake Botox? First and foremost, you have no idea what it’s actually made of. Some of the side effects of fake Botox can be paralysis of the face, infection and even permanent nerve damage.

Though most won’t be actively seeking counterfeit Botox, you may be putting yourself in a risky position if you overlook a few things. If a deal is good to be true, more than likely it is. Though sales do happen, there’s still a minimum you should expect to pay. Pay attention during the procedure; though there might be some discomfort, there shouldn’t be excessive pain. This is a tell-tell sign of a certified provider of Botox or not.

Want to be extra sure? Check the box. Though it’s unusual for a patient to check the Botox box, you can sure it’s genuine by asking your provider to see it. Most of the time, there’s a holographic image printed on the vial. If this is missing— or just simply a sticker, the product is likely counterfeit. You’ll also find an expiration date and lot number on the real deal. The FDA-approved Botox shows “OnabotulinumtoxinA” as the active ingredient, if there’s any substitute, you should be alarmed.

All of this sounds slightly tedious, no? We’ve got a better option than asking to see bottles and stressing about counterfeit Botox. Come to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. The peace of mind knowing you’re not only receiving real Botox, but also will be in the hands of an actual registered nurse is worth its weight in gold. Our reputation as a top-rated provider of Botox and other med spa treatments in Gilbert, AZ is easily accessible on Google.

If you’d like to learn more about Botox, or any of our other 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 father 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.

Med Spa Miracles: Five Ways to Maintain a Youthful Appearance

There’s so many things we do in our day-to-day to keep ourselves vibrant; eat well, work out and wear sunscreen, but when it comes to maintaining a youthful appearance in our face, there’s somethings that are out of our hands. Regardless of how many healthy habits you’ve taken up, there’s only so much we can do, especially for our face. If you’re looking to maintain a youthful appearance, look no further than Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ. Our team of highly skilled professionals want to work with you on your skincare goals and below you’ll find a few of suggested tips to looking as young as you feel…

1.) BOTOX: One of the fastest ways to take years off than with a quick injection of Botox. Both highly effective and safe, Botox is a great ease-into the sometimes overwhelming world of anti-aging treatments. With few restrictions and little to no downtime after your treatment, Botox is a total breeze.

2.) Voluma: As we age, our cheeks go flat and it’s a huge concern for lots of folks trying to refresh their look. The no scalpel required treatment, Voluma, actually does wonders by lifting and contouring your cheek area— giving you a more fuller and youthful appearance. The best part? This treatment can last up two years, the only filler to do so.

3.) Microblading: One of the worst parts about getting older is the loss of eyebrows and toll it takes on the general look of our face. Those once bushy and full brows take a turn for thinness as the years go by. Alas, now with Microblading, you can throw away your brow-pencils with this semi-permanent treatment. One of our extremely trained technicians tattoo individual eyebrows hairs onto your face, providing a natural fuller-looking brow.

4.) Kybella: There’s few things as bothersome than a turkey neck. That deposit of fat that sits under the chin and regardless of how many salads you eat, just will not go away and even gets worse with every passing birthday. With one of thee most discussed treatments, Kybella, you can actually destroy those fat cells forever. Rid yourself of the wobble in just two treatments and zero touch-ups.

5.) PRP Facial: The PRP Facial starts with our very talented registered nurse drawing some of your blood with the smallest of pokes and then separates the blood into platelet-rich plasma that will applied to your face. You’ll then receive micro needling— a method that not only allows the PRP to be better absorbed, but also stimulates collagen production. The results are unlike any other facial you’ll ever receive— the ultimate in anti-aging treatments.

What is Preventive Botox?

How soon is too soon for Botox? New studies say sooner the better and at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, we can’t help but agree. There’s a lot of brow-raising discussions about a younger audience benefiting from using Botox long term. Within the 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.

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.

The New Wrinkle Remover: Dysport

There’s no doubt you’re familiar with everyone’s favorite wrinkle-fix, Botox, but have you heard of Dysport? Though they’re both used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, there’s a few differences in the products. Firstly, Dysport allows clients to retain a more natural and refreshed look— no “frozen face” that can sometimes happen with other injectables. Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the brows by limiting certain muscle activity. By reducing the repeated muscle contractions with Dysport, the treatment is actually preventative— something that strongly appeals to a younger audience. In addition, Dysport actually starts very fast, you’ll start seeing results as early as two days.

So who is Dysport right for? Anyone who wants to treat fine lines, wrinkles and especially if you want to take a preventative measures altogether. The treatment takes 10-to 20-minutes and there’s very minimals downtime, meaning you can get back to schedule quickly. If you’re interested in learning more about Dysport or Botox, please visit us at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona.

Our Creative Director’s Six Must-Have Products

There’s a seemingly never-ending around of advice on which beauty products to buy. If you’re looking for the opinion of a true-pro, and one with 20+ years of experience, let us introduce you to our creative director, Gretchen Weidman. She’s here to dish about her six must-have products, that you can pick up today from Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa.

Gretchen Weidman, Creative Director of Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa

1.) I literally can not say enough good things about Pai-Shau, therefore, I must start this list with the incomparable Biphasic Infusion. Perhaps the crown jewel of the brand, the infusion is loaded with tea and all their antioxidants— it not only gives the hair amazing shine but protects from heat damage. Also, because the infusion isn’t an oil, you can totally indulge without the fear of having a soggy-looking scalp.

2.) There’s really nothing like the Cleanse Shampoo from Nuema. Because of the peppermint essential oil that’s packed into the shampoo, it’s the most refreshing thing that will ever happen to your scalp. I’m also in love with the fact that this product is without sulfates and completely organic. This is a great product for everyone in the family.

3.) For dry summer ravaged-hair, the mask from Pai-Shau is a miracle in a jar. After you’ve let the mask sit five to seven minutes, rinse it off in the shower and you’re ready to go. The products from Pai-Shau, are busting with oat and rice protein— that means you’re safe to use this on the daily, including the shampoo!

4.) If you’re looking for thee perfect styling product, look no further than the Clay Pomade from Nuema. It doesn’t create a film on the hair, has a light scent and leaves the hair flexible— allowing you to change up your look freely.

5.) I’m a sucker for lux products, so I must mention the Opulent Volume Shampoo from Pai-Shau. This liquid gold doesn’t leave your hair feeling like Velcro as most other shampoos do, rather you’re going to find yourself with smooth locks. In addition to the shampoo, the conditioner softens the cuticle and leaves your hair light as a feather— no heavy hair here.

6.) I can not do this list without mentioning my favorite hairspray, the Sublime Flexible from Pai-Shau. If you need control but movement, this product is the ticket. Strong enough to hold curls and fly-aways, yet soft enough to run your fingers through— without ever flaking on you mid-day.

For more information about the products listed above or to schedule an appointment with our creative director, give us a call at (480) 912-5325
