Beauty Trends can sometimes be scary, but hey beauty is pain - right? Here are a few beauty trends you may be scared to try but you should do it anyway.
Now, I know what you are thinking. Botox is for really bad wrinkles or I don't want to get Botox and not be able to move my face. These are both misconceptions. For me, I get Botox for my chronic migraines, I tried everything prior to getting Botox and this has been my saving grace. I've gotten Botox for YEARS. If it serves a dual whammy of making my forehead smooth, then so be it :)
The secret to getting Botox is find someone who specializes in it and not just a bonus service. I paid my facial doctor, Dr. Donath a visit. He is the BEST. What led me to him was, he specializes just in the face and it took awhile to even get in for an appointment, you know that means he is doing something right.
Botox is not just for older women, you can get Botox for preventative measures as well as extra benefits such as stopping migraines, like me. In the video, Dr. Donath explains in detail what he is going to do, the procedure is painless as they numb the area before. If you're scared of needles then close your eyes, you'll only feel a slight pinch. The recovery time is very minimal. The basic things are, you can't exercise for 24 hours, you can't lay down for 4 hours to avoid increased blood flow which might cause the botox to be dispersed, and other guidelines your Doctor should give you for aftercare.
This is a beauty trend, I definitely approve and you should try. Please hit up Dr. Donath's office for a consultation, his whole staff is amazing.

Everyone wants great eyebrows, right? Often times my eyebrows take the longest getting that perfect shape. The Brow Therapist offers semi permanent eyebrow services if you dare for great brows as soon as you wake up. Now, I have not tried this beauty trend yet, because I had several questions like: will it hurt? what if I don't like it? I don't want my brows looking crazy. My advice would be to go to someone who has a lot of pictures of their work like The Brow Therapist.
All my questions were answered on her FAQ page such as:
