Alright you guys. Time for me to put all my business out there and help some of you out. I feel like I listen to so many of you put yourself down on a daily basis when you’re in my chair and It makes me feel so bad- I am not desensitized to it and I cringe every single time. We are all the same. Behind closed doors, I’m also a normal woman who worries about the same “imperfections” on my face. Im 32 and live a pretty stressed life. I am constantly working, rushing to get from one appointment to the next every single day. When I’m not working with clients in person, I’m on my phone answering texts, voicemails, IG dms, emails and Facebook messages from past, present and future clients. I never sleep before 1 am and am up by 7 am daily to be a mom and get to my morning appointments (earlier on weekends for sunrise shoots, weddings and boudoir work). I think all of these things have really taken a toll on my skin in the last few years since my business took off. I wouldn’t trade it for anything because I am so thankful to be able to be more present for Gisele than ever before and do what I truly love - but for me it was def time to take the leap and do something about things that were making me self conscious about my face in a relatively simple/painless/non invasive manner. I just want to share something that may help you in the same way that it has helped me. We all have a great base/beautiful face to work with, it just may need a little help to be next level 😉
If you’ve been even a little curious about Botox and fillers- please take a look at the two pics at the bottom of this post, because I’m about to tell you my experience with Botox/xeomin w someone I’ve been following for months right here in the dc area!
A few weeks (3 and a few days) have passed since I visited @botoxbunny (Erika Barry) over at the gorgeous Hela Medical spa in Georgetown DC- if you were following my instastories you saw me post an unedited pic of my face from a few days ago w a light layer of makeup on. If you look next to it, you’ll see an embarrassing unedited picture from just about a month ago w the same amount of makeup on. Tired eyes, crows feet and saggy brows lol.
Miss Erika injected just enough Botox/xeomin around my eyes to smooth out my crows feet, forehead to smooth out the lines where makeup always settles, brows to lift them and help w the hooded eyes I’ve developed, and upper lip to help it do a "lip flip"/ stop curling when I smiled (I hated my gums showing and refused to wear lip gloss for this reason since I was a teenager. She told me I did not need any filler at all because my lips are already full so another high five to her for not selling me a bunch of stuff I didn’t even need).
This treatment has also helped me to stop furrowing my brows constantly from stress and reading/thinking etc which often led to headaches by mid day most days. I had Botox/dysport done once before but was really unhappy with it and didn’t like the customer service either (email me at Jeet.firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about that place because I don’t believe in putting anyone on blast). @botoxbunny watched me talk, listened to exactly what my concerns were and then came up w the perfect plan that worked for me.
To answer many of you, yes it’s a little more expensive to get work done in dc compared to our local area, however, @botoxbunny is well worth every single penny. I think the extra couple of dollars that I spent per unit was def worth it because she took her time, didn’t rush me out of the spa, and honestly did a great, natural job. You can see it yourself in my before and after photo. Please DM me if you have any questions and also follow her for great treatments she offers/pictures of before and afters. Thanks again Miss Erika- you seriously have no idea how much better I feel. ❤️
