As you age, the connective tissue in your skin breaks down. These tissues, known as collagen and elastin, work together to make your skin tight and supple. Besides the loss of your connective tissue, the cushioning layer of fat that separates muscle from the skin will gradually diminish. As a result of losing tissue and fat, wrinkles will begin to develop.
Botox is made up of very small amounts of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum in a purified and refined form. When injected, Botox interrupts signals that force muscle contractions. This allows facial muscles to fully relax, which ultimately helps your skin smooth out. When compared to other injections, Botox is particularly beneficial because it goes to work immediately. You should notice an improvement shortly after your treatment.
Botox is FDA approved starting at age 18. Bello Voi’s Medical Professionals emphasizes the importance of starting treatment early, as it can prevent lines from ever forming on the face.
XEOMIN® is an analog alternative that works in a similar manner. During your consultation, your practitioner will inform you about which injectable is best suited for your needs.
Botox is most commonly used as a cosmetic treatment. It works best when it’s used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in and around the forehead and eyes.
Botox may also be used to treat conditions related to bodily functions, including:
No. However, Botox is known for being long-lasting. Most clients find that it smooths moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles for up to four months. For fine lines, your treatment could last even longer.
Whether it is BOTOX or Xeomin, either type of injectable, it’s perfectly safe to repeat treatments once the effects wear off.
Prices range from $10 - $13 per unit depending on how much of the treatment you are planning on doing.
Some men and women who get Botox injections describe a slight pinching feeling upon injection. This is entirely normal and is well-tolerated. Botox shouldn’t be painful, but if you’re having an injection in a known sensitive area, like near the corners of your eyes, you might feel more stinging than you would in your forehead.
We want your treatment to be as smooth and painless as possible. We use a topical cream to make the injections more comfortable. If overly sensitive we suggest applying a topical numbing cream or ice pack about 20 minutes before your treatment.

Melanie and Morgan along with the entire staff at Bello Voi are fantastic. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable, caring, understanding, and truly enjoy seeing everyone succeed in their journey to better health. My journey was not always easy, but they were there to push me through the hard days, and celebrate each step forward. With the start of the 2 week detox program, Melanie's guidance on nutrition, Red Light Therapy, and body wraps I was not only able to hit my goal, but exceed the numbers I had set. My 5 month journey was a complete lifestyle change, but I was able to loose 17 pounds and a total of 25" overall!! I HIGHLY recommend making that first appointment. It will change your life, and self confidence!
I’m so happy to become a member of Bello Voi! This place is definitely a hidden gem! I always look forward to some self care time with my Red Light Therapy sessions. Morgan is very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. She makes sure everything is perfect and provides a zen experience. Her assistant, Koree is also very sweet & helpful!
Morgan was so awesome, polite and professional..services was perfect and my first session went great..Morgan gave great home instructions for my nutrition diet
I was truly shocked at how well my treatments worked in a short amount of time. I have struggled to lose weight over the years because I work so much. 30 minutes 2x a week was easy. I lost 28 lbs in 6 weeks with my light sessions. The staff is so knowledgeable, and I can tell that they put their heart and attention into their clients. Bello Voi’s Red Light Machine was able to cover my entire body. I have seen other places offer similar services around my home town, but the atmosphere at Bello Voi helped me to relax at the same time I got my treatment. As a client I also get discounts on supplements and other services that they offer.
