Botox For Beginners


I know that the idea of Botox and Dysport can be so intimidating! There’s so much to learn and research and it can feel overwhelming when there are so many resources. I am 26 and just got my second round of Dysport. 


Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions.7 One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines. In other words: natural-looking results that look and feel like you. (Source: Dysport website) I do it as a preventative measure to help fight the long-term effects of aging and fine lines. I was really self-conscious about my forehead lines and felt that the stress of the last two years really aged my skin. 



Before I got anything injected, I consulted my friends who have experience getting Botox and did my own research. I wanted an RN or plastic surgeon to do my service because I wanted a medical professional to perform my treatment. I ended up going to Innovative Med Spa in Chicago. Make sure that you trust your injector before your appointment! Research them and make sure that they're a medical professional!



I am admittedly scared of needles and was apprehensive about my first appointment back in March of 2021. But Jen from Innovative Med Spa Chicago knew exactly what she was doing, answered all my questions, and made me feel comfortable. 


After about 4 months, I returned for my second appointment. The whole experience takes about 15-20 minutes. I made a TikTok about my whole experience and my results a week out from my appointment.

Full effects take about two weeks to set in, but I can see results within a few days of my appointment. At the end of my video, that was my face one week after seeing Jen!

The biggest question I have gotten is about price. Botox and Dysport (whichever you decide to go with) are priced by unit. Units can range in price depending on where you go and where you live. I don't want to share how many units I receive specifically because everyone is different and has different needs. Right now through July 20th, Innovative Med Spa is running a special of $12 a unit, after that, it will be $14 a unit. Additionally, you can use my code HANNAH50 for $50 off your first service with Jen. This can be anything they offer and is not just limited to Dysport and Botox.

It can feel taboo to talk about and I totally get it! But remember that no matter what you do, people have already decided their opinion of you - so you might as well be yourself and do what you want!
