How I overcame the Stigma, Fear, and Judgment around Botox – Men’s Beauty with Dino Alexander

How I overcame the stigma, fear, and judgment around Botox, or better know around men as Brotox, and other facial injectables – Men's Beauty with Dino Alexander

I would like to take you on my journey of finding the best Medical Spa in the Hudson Valley. Some call them Med Spa or Medi Spa, but whichever you twist it – these are the amazing places where age-defying magic happens with the help of state-of-the-art medical-grade beauty tech that used to be reserved for Hollywood celebrities only…

The biggest challenge to overcome along the way was the fear of receiving a bad service with unsightly results. We have all heard stories and seen images, right? And they can be horrifying. Finding a highly-skilled doctor and reputable service provider was the first step. I did the research and read the reviews so you don’t have to. I had my complimentary consultation and would highly recommend you get one too. HEBE MedSpa in Fishkill offers free consultations for all of their services and the information you will receive there is absolutely invaluable. Even after doing my online research and googling every topic on the subject I can think of the information I found wasn’t nearly as helpful as what Dr. Zainab Mogul-Ashraf (or Dr. Z for short) at the HEBE Med Spa revealed about the purpose, effectiveness, and expectations of receiving Botox injectables for wrinkles and frown lines.

Aside from the fear of walking out with a deformed face, there was also the fear of needles that has prevented me from considering the process. And I will be honest, the first experience was a little nerve-racking. This is where having a highly-skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced injector comes into play. Dr. Z was the most gentle, kind, and compassionate doctor that I have ever met. Her hand was holding this sharp needle but her work was so gentle and her attitude so calming that made the entire process virtually pain-free, and ok, I will say it, actually enjoyable.

After you find a good place to get the procedure, which you already did #hebemedspa, you will most likely experience some guilt and feelings of shame depending on your circles of family and friends. One thing I have learned during the past year of challenges we all have faced was the importance of self-care. I have noticed that it wasn’t only me but many people, including you probably, that have come to similar realizations and have shifted some priorities in their lives. So when someone tries to shame you or forces their opinions on you on the topic, just remember: it’s your body, your life, and your happiness on the line and you should always come first. So do what makes you happy. We have only one life to live, live it with a smile on that pretty face, and get some Botox at HEBE MedSpa so it lasts longer, the smile I mean.
