Botox: Everything You Want to Know

Tulum, Mexico: My Botox Experience with Bio Spa Clinique

Calling All My Wellness and Beauty Lovers to Tulum, Mexico for more reasons than one!

I am no stranger to wellness and beauty experiences! In fact, I find as the years go by, my love and experience of both increases!

My beauty and wellness experiences have included Herbalife Nutrition, massages, facials, manis and pedis, hair treatments, nose job, fillers, and anti-aging and preventative care like Botox to name just a few.

While in Tulum, Mexico in June 2021, I enjoyed a Botox Experience with Bio Spa Clinique.

Botox Background

This isn't my first time getting Botox by far. In my 20s, I read about Botox as a preventative treatment. I started getting treatments maybe once to twice a year. Later, I varied my treatments to 2 to 3 times a year. Each time, I am more than happy with the benefits and results and how long they last. I choose to tolerate the few seconds to minutes of pain for the end result.

Before my travel to Tulum, Mexico, I knew I wanted to do Botox again. Although I usually keep up with Botox treatments every 4 to 9 months, in 2020 I didn't. Earlier in 2021, I realized my last Botox injections were in late 2019.

I could definitely see the difference in between my eyes, forehead, eyebrows and crows feet. Not only that, last year I experienced my first migraine. I mention this because there are many professionals who believe Botox assists with migraines too.

Botox may be impacted based on the type of Botox used, amount of ccs, age you start, frequency of treatments, facial movement, climate you live in, and how active you are, There may be other factors involved as well.

Keep in mind, I started sooner rather than later, have remained pretty consistent, am very expressive, and work out at least 5 times a week. Typically, Botox typically lasts me approximately 3 to 6 months. For example, at the 3 to 4 month mark, I may see increased movement in various areas. In comparison, if I wait 6 months, I see any lines that have formed are visible.

Botox treatments and the amount of ccs vary by preference. I prefer to have little to very little movement between my eyes, forehead, eyebrows, and crowfeet. In a photoshoot with Glamour Shots, you may see how my forehead is smooth, no lines in between my eyes or above my eyebrows, and no crowfeet.

When I started competing and dropped 55+ lbs in 2013 to 2014, the line on the side of my mouth developed. This is typical when your face gets slimmer and for bodybuilders. It doesn't bother me too much. I have gotten filler here before once or twice.
