Skin Type: I would say my skin type is combination. I never drink enough water (though I try!), so it can get dehydrated. I’m prone to hormonal breakouts and depending on the season, my skin can also be pretty sensitive.
Feelings on medical aesthetics pre-treatment: I’ve always had really positive feelings in regards to getting “work” done. Perhaps that’s thanks to many years spent watching The Real Housewives or maybe it’s simply seeing the great results my friends have had with medical aesthetics procedures. Either way, it’s totally normalized to me. If you could wave a magic wand and love the way you look even more, why wouldn’t you? I can love myself and love that these enhancements are available thanks to modern science. And I do!
Walk us through your experience:
To be completely honest, my decision to get Xeomin was extremely last-minute. I was at milk + honey receiving a touch up for my Versa Lip Filler and mentioned to Allison (the amazing Nurse Practitioner at milk + honey) that I’ve always wanted to do something about my 11s. I explained that I (unwillingly) sleep with my forehead scrunched and often wake up with red lines on my forehead from furrowing my brow all night. We talked a little bit about Botox vs. Xeomin vs. Dysport and I ultimately chose Xeomin because it’s newer, doesn’t have the protein encasements or additives, and (let’s be honest) Gwyneth Paltrow had just posted about getting Xeomin on Instagram.
