Beauty Post Covid: Get Your Botox with Doctor Bev
After MANY MONTHS of getting up each morning and peering into the reflection staring back at me in the mirror and seeing those 11 lines etch even deeper I decided it was time to finally get a Botox treatment.
It's been at least a year since I had a beauty treatment and to be honest I felt guilty and a little trepidation about going to a doctor in the middle of a pandemic to fix my wrinkles.
But while chatting with Doctor Bev she made a really great point- now more than ever we need to do things that make us feel a little semblance of normality.
And to be honest seeing oneself on Zoom every day a little refreshed can only be a good thing!
Honestly I could not have found a better physician and master of her craft than Doctor Bev whose staff @beautycoachnyc ushered me into their @truebeauty.medspa with every covid precaution taken and if I wasn't wearing my mask 😷 it just would've felt like a routine procedure!
In other words I felt normal and so good to be in the capable hands of Doctor Bev who is helping me achieve my best self! I love how she really took the time to ask me what I wanted and then gave me a realistic beauty plan!
Oh and did I mention that it was 30 minutes from Staten Island to her office by car and that she has a lovely office and parking lot??

The Staten Island Family: Why is getting botox on a regular basis an investment in your beauty regimen and in your face?
Get Your Botox with Doctor Bev: I love botox because it softens the lines of expression and prevents new ones from developing when used regularly. It helps to create and maintain a more rested appearance while providing a subtle elevation of your brows and it reduces the “elevens” making you appear less tired and friendlier. That said, you spend less time looking in the mirror and more time enjoying your life.

The Staten Island Family: What should patients expect after a botox treatment-what are the benefits?
Doctor Bev: Botox is a quick painless injection that takes about 2 or 3 days to work and lasts about 3-4 months. Botox relaxes certain muscles allowing the benefits to be seen on everyone when used appropriately.
The Staten Island Family: Your tips for people who are looking to have a botox treatment (what should they look for in a dr.)
Doctor Bev: There is no substitute for training and experience. Board certified Plastic surgeons understand the interactions of the muscles in the face and can explain the benefits of Botox as it relates to your appearance. It is important to vet your provider to ensure they have years of training, not just a weekend course under their belt. Just as everyone’s appearance differs, so too, the Botox treatment must differ to achieve the subtle improvements you are looking for.
