Botox® to Treat Wrinkles

The onset of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines is a common problem for men and women as they age. Though these lines and wrinkles are just reminders of your maturity and wisdom, they can also make you appear tired and even angry.

At Lotus Wellness Spa, one way we treat these problem areas is with Botox® Cosmetic, which is a quick and virtually painless treatment that can help you to look rested and rejuvenated, as if you’ve just returned from a much needed vacation.* This wrinkle treatment is ideal for both men and women.

What is Botox®?

Botox is a form of Botulinum toxin that has been purified and diluted to be safe for cosmetic use.* Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant, and when administered in the form of Botox®, can significantly ease the appearance of some wrinkles.*

Although Botox® is a toxin, it is FDA-approved for frown line treatment, it is not believed to have caused serious side effects, and the treatment does not carry the same risks of infection that may be present with facelift surgery.*

How Botox® Works?

When Botox® is injected into facial muscles, the toxin temporarily blocks neuron activity, which prevents full muscle contraction.* Because the muscles can no longer contract, the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial movements like frowning, raising the eyebrows, or squinting is significantly reduced.*

Botox® injections are an ideal solution for smoothing the skin between eyebrows, eliminating lines on the forehead, and reducing the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes.*

What Botox® Treats

We inject a small amount of Botox® into the muscles that create the wrinkles.* This Botulinum derivative blocks the nerve impulses from reaching that area of the muscle and the contractions begin to weaken.* As the muscle weakens, the Botox®-treated areas begin to relax and the wrinkles in the skin become less visible and often disappear altogether.*

Botox® injections can be used to treat several types of wrinkles, including crow’s feet and frown lines.*

What areas of the face can be treated with Botox?

The most common treatment areas include the “crow’s feet”, forehead and glabella region between the eyebrows. However, Botox is a versatile drug and many other treatment applications – both cosmetic and therapeutic -have been documented

How does Botox reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles?

Botox is a neuromuscular blocker. It stops the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which stops the contraction of specific muscles in the face. When those muscles become relaxed, facial lines and wrinkles gradually flatten out.

What are the Advantages of Botox®?

  • Fast and effective. A typical treatment will show improvement approximately after 4-7 days, and takes only 10-15 minutes to complete.*1
  • Little discomfort – we take great care in administering these injections*
  • There is no “down-time.” After the Botox® injections, you may resume normal activity or go back to work*
  • Creates natural-looking outcomes without evidence that you’ve had work done*
  • There is no decrease in sensation or numbness of Botox® treated areas*
  • The effects of Botox® injections are reversible; lasting 3 to 9 months*1
  • Repeated injections of upkeep treatments may cause a muscle memory response to develop, thus enhancing Botox® effects.*
  • Botox® is a nonsurgical approach to treat wrinkles, which eliminates the need for anesthesia and long recovery times*

Do Botox® Injections Hurt?

At Lotus Wellness Spa, we take great care to make Botox® injections painless for our patients.* We apply a topical anesthetic cream and/or ice compresses for several minutes prior to the treatment to numb the area.* When the injection begins, you may feel a slight stinging sensation, but it will quickly subside.* Once the Botox® injection is complete, we apply an ice compress to address any initial discomfort.*

Are Botox® Injections Safe?

Botox® has an excellent safety profile.* It has been used by neurologists and ophthalmologists for nearly two decades to correct facial tics and to relax the eye muscles responsible for the condition known as lazy eye.*

How long does it take for Botox to take effect?

Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features we possess. They frame our face, and enhance our eyes.  All we have to do is find a brow pencil that’s an exact, or at least fairly decent, color match. Then we simply draw the brow on, naturally getting the right shape, width, length, and arch every time!  Let us not forget the other brow – symmetry would be nice.  Now we can only hope that they last for at least most of the day.

Now thanks to microblading, you can have the ultimate in well groomed, immaculate and long lasting eyebrows. Whether your brows are overgrown or over plucked, we can sculpt them into the perfect shape for your face and transform the way you look and feel about yourself. Your eyebrows are a vital part of your personality. Not only do they frame your face, over 70% of your facial expressions depend on them! And that’s why the right brow shape and color can take years off you.

Eyebrow microblading frees you from the brow pencils and the drudgery of the daily drawing task. At Lotus Health & Wellness we give you fabulous eyebrows everyday, flawlessly and with no effort!


Microblading, also known as microstroking, is an advanced brow stroke technique whereby a superfine row of needles is used to create thin, hair like marks on the skin, which last up to 18 months.  It is ideal for creating a very full and realistic looking brow, and is becoming an increasingly popular method in permanent makeup. It is quite similar to hair stroke cosmetic tattoo using the machine method, however the strokes are finer, and are not implanted as deeply in the skin. Therefore, cosmetic tattoo brows completed using microblade or microstroke technique are not as permanent. They are really to be considered semi-permanent, lasting usually around 12 months before a retouch is required.

During the treatment, after a brow consultation, the new brow shape outline is penciled on, the brow area is numbed, and then pigment is implanted into the skin using very tiny needle strokes. These are built up into the new shape, and the area gradually made denser with lots of tiny hair strokes, depending on the desired result. One, two or even three different shades of pigment can be used, creating a single, double or even triple layer brow tattoo, giving a 3D brow effect.

There are many benefits from microblading your brows. Your eyebrows will look great, making you appear younger and more beautiful. The most defining feature of your face is your eyebrows, so if you want to bring symmetry to your face and put the focus on your eyes, you should think of microblading for your eyebrows. You will be glad that you did, since you will no longer need to use brow pencils, gels or powders after that, and won’t have to worry about smears.

Now that your eyebrows are stylish and attractive, you will glow with self confidence. Add a distinctive look to your unique personality. Your eyes will look brighter and your eyebrows will finally be proportioned. The cutting-edge microblading technique is amazing; it will make you and your eyebrows stand out in any crowd.


Achieve long-lasting flawless and fuller looking eyebrows!

The Benefits Of A Earth Stone Massage

Research shows that massage is a good part of a personal spring cleaning. Massage increases circulation and lymph flow, decremoving bacteria from body tissues and helping the body clean itself out.

Massage also reduces the rate at which the heart beats and lowers blood pressure, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion and increases the release of endorphins.

Hot stone massage is a technique that’s getting a lot of attention at spas and retreats worldwide and is growing in popularity. The technique combines massage with heated and cool volcanic, water-polished river stones and handmade marble stones. It incorporates all the usual benefits, yet cold stones bring an additional bonus by helping to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation.

The merits of applying hot and cold stones to the body for relaxation and therapeutic value has been known for many years. The ancient Chinese used this technique more than 3,000 years ago. The Native Americans are said to have used stones from a running brook for centuries as a means of applying uniform heat to the body.

The basic method uses heated river stones from a warm water basin and cold marble stones from a cooler. Stones are placed precisely under and on top of the client, who wears a large bath sheet.

The massage practitioner also uses the hot stones to massage deeply into muscles. The deep penetrating heat draws blood into an area, increasing circulation and creating an extremely relaxed state. Cold stones are placed wherever the client feels pain or inflammation.

Many clients have a hard time distinguishing between the stones and the practitioner’s hands. The technique seems to reach deeper without having to apply more pressure. Clients leave feeling the beneficial effects of a deep massage, without any soreness.

It’s important to know that hot stones are not recommended for pregnant women or people with multiple sclerosis. The cold stones, however, can be therapeutic and healing for all.

The spiritual nature of being healed with a piece of the Earth offers another dimension. The stones give over their heating and cooling effects to the client’s body, mind and spirit. In that energy exchange, many clients say they feel akin with the stones.

In a world that’s swiftly growing in technology, traffic and stress, it’s nice to know that small pebbles and stones have the power to restore peace and tranquility. It makes sense that we would find the power to heal under our feet.
