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.

Fried hair isn’t cute, and all of the extra work you’ve got to put into taming it, is exhausting. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa wants you to know about our demi-permanent hair conditioner.

If you’re reading this a plunge or two, too late and have found your ends to be on the fried side, you need to know about our Demi-permanent treatment.

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.

The Manly Man’s Guide to Med Spas 

Somewhere through the macho pages of history, gents got this notion that they weren’t allowed to have their own time at the spa. Though Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa provides outstanding services for women, we’re equally passionate about men visiting us for med spa treatments as well. You work out, try to look your best and yet you might be thinking med spas aren’t for you? Alas, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Firstly, let’s talk about Brotox, or Botox for Bros. Botox is a injectable used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and our incredible registered nurse can even maintain your ruggedly-handsome looks, giving you a more refreshed, youthful look. 

Maybe you’re finding yourself feeling a little out of it and run down? Try our IV Nutrient Therapies. For the gym rats, or party boys, IV Nutrient Therapy is ideal. Available in both traditional drip and ‘push’ form, IV Nutrient Therapy allows you to receive a plethora of vitamins and good stuff directly into your bloodstream. Not only can it help with issues like fatigue, hypertension and infections, but it can also help alleviate a wild night on the town, making that hangover a little softer. If you’re looking to recovery faster from intense workouts at the gym, IV Nutrient Therapy helps with muscle recovery. 

Maybe you’re going a little thin on top? We can even help with that too. There isn’t a thinning-haired fella around who can’t say he wished there was a solution, and that’s why we have PRP for hair loss. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and it’s important here because the growth factors found in your own plasma act as a kind of messengers, telling skin cells to function and help stimulate activity in the follicles to promote hair growth. The treatment starts with a easy and simple blood draw from our registered nurse, where we 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 locations on your scalp where you’d like to see hair growth.

So next time you hear your lady-friend mention she’s headed to see us for an appointment, don’t be afraid to come in for your own service. If you’d like to learn more about any of the treatments discussed above, or any of our other men’s med spa services, please visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa or call us at (480) 912-5325.
