Have you ever wanted to host a Botox party? Or wondered what a Botox party even is?
Let’s start with the basic question: What is Botox?
Botox is a neuro-muscular blocker, prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin, and it is used to treat a wide range of symptoms from muscle spasms, migraines, and even excessive sweating. Botox has been approved for cosmetic treatments by the U.S. Food and Drugs administration since 2002.
Botox® and related products (Xeomin®, Dysport™) act by weakening muscle under the skin. This results in the smoothing of wrinkles by reducing the pull of the muscle on the overlying attached skin. While aging is inevitable, modern medicine continues to combat the signs of it, and Botox is one of the most common treatments for smoothing frown lines, crows feet, and forehead furrows.
This brings us to the next question: What is a Botox party?
A Botox party is generally a group of friends or co-workers who want to enjoy an evening of good company while treating themselves to a more youthful and refreshed look. Parties can be held in a medical office or in a more comfortable setting such as a salon, spa, or boutique. It is common to combine a Botox party with other aesthetic services, such as a facial, make up, or hair style consultations. It all depends on the venue and the host. Refreshments are typically served while friends catch up, discover new trends, and feel relaxed and pampered. Botox is administered specific to the aesthetic goals of each guest. As an additional benefit, the host of the party usually receives a discounted rate for each unit of Botox he/she purchases for themselves.
It is essential that Botox is administered by an experienced medical professional. Many clinicians these days will administer Botox, but they may not have the appropriate training or certification, so you will want to do your research. Dr. Jarred McDaniel, board certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and Logen Nunberg, B.S.N., R.N. do all of the Botox injections for Gallatin Plastic Surgery. You can rest assured that clinical standards for safety and optimal results are adhered to, regardless of the location of the party.
If you are interested in Botox but find it intimidating, a party is a great place to get more information as you chat with Dr. McDaniel. There is never any pressure to receive the treatment yourself. You are more than welcome to attend the party to simply enjoy the experience and the company of your friends.
