10 Jun Real Housewife Gifts Herself Botox for Mother’s Day
In recent weeks, celebrities and non-celebrities alike have been desperate for their pampering routines and treatments—and one Real Housewives of Atlanta star treated herself to Botox for Mother’s Day. Botox and dermal fillers are both popular options to give as gifts at RefinedMD, whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, or another special event. Injectables like Botox help you look and feel your best with virtually no downtime and appointments that take about 30 minutes. It’s exactly what reality star Porsha Williams needed for her special day.
Williams decided to pick out her own Mother’s Day gift this year to ensure she got exactly what she wanted. She shared a selfie on Instagram after the injection, writing “I feel like a queen today!” It’s exactly how every mom should feel. Williams opted for Botox on her forehead to vanquish the horizontal lines that are often some of the first facial blemishes to appear.
According to Williams, the quick procedure helped “wake her up” after weeks of self-quarantining that left her feeling drained. She wrote, “I started to look and feel a bit tired” and Botox was just the fix to make her “shine bright like a diamond.” She added the hashtags #mothersdaygift2myself and #treatyourself. A lot of Botox and dermal filler lovers have been antsy in the past few weeks as they were unable to get the treatments that boosted their aesthetic and self-confidence. The good news is that both Botox and dermal fillers show results quickly, so even if you’ve missed your usual maintenance appointments recently you can quickly get back on track.
Botox works by paralyzing certain facial muscles so that lines and wrinkles can’t form. It’s been a staple for men and women alike for years, and younger clients (like Williams) often use it as a preventative measure. Lines and wrinkles form when muscles create certain expressions (like squinting), and those muscles get stronger with use. For clients who don’t yet have permanent lines and wrinkles, Botox can train specific muscles to get weaker so lines don’t form in the first place. Botox is also popular for its off-label uses including migraine treatment and controlling excessive sweating.
What About Dermal Fillers?
Williams didn’t get dermal fillers herself, but it’s an in-demand treatment that’s often combined with Botox. Both dermal fillers and Botox are such effective and fast treatments that you can squeeze both in during a lunchtime appointment. Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), which your body already naturally produces. The HA plumps targeted areas to help perfect your pout, enhance cheekbones, fill in hollowness below the eyes, and even make the tops of the hands look more youthful. There’s also Sculptra, the only non-HA dermal filler. It uses a different type of acid that occurs naturally in the body and encourages the body to produce collagen to plump the desired area. The results with Sculptra aren’t immediate (unlike other dermal fillers) but they can last up to two years.
Both Botox and dermal fillers have become staple treatments for many clients. They can help you look more youthful, radiant, happier, and healthier. Everyone naturally loses collagen as they get older, which can make skin look older. Dermal fillers return that youthful plumpness to the face (and hands!) in all the right areas. Botox works from the inside, stopping the formation of wrinkles and lines in their tracks. This powerful duo can help women and men achieve their best look—and you certainly don’t need to wait for a holiday to make it happen.

The exact type of neurotoxin, such as Botox or Dysport, as well as injection sites and units will vary person to person. The same goes for dermal fillers, with a variety of options available meant to treat different areas. Everyone deserves a Botox or dermal filler regimen designed just for them and injected by an expert with years of experience combined with continuing education.
