Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala. From the moment you enter her practice, you instantly feel calm and comfortable. The office staff are so friendly and informative regarding the process to put you at ease during your first visit. Dr. Shanthala took the time to sit with me and discuss my current aging concerns and goals without ever making me feel rushed or pressured. She thoroughly explained the anatomy of my face in a way that no other doctor has before and explained the important roles that each muscles plays in my facial expressions. It was obvious from the start that Dr. Shanthala is truly passionate about helping her clients look and feel their best. One of the most unique aspects of Dr. Shanthala’s practice is the fact that she takes the time to consult and educate you prior to completing any treatments or cosmetic procedures. She then takes before and after photos to track your progress and allow you to visually compare your results. Let me tell you, I was BLOWN away. After one Botox treatment with Dr. Shanthala, my face had a more youthful and wrinkle free glow without looking fake or frozen. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me within the first week of my treatment to tell me how healthy and well rested I looked. 5 stars are not enough for this amazing doctor. She treats each person as an individual and helps you to feel beautiful and confident. If you are considering trying Botox or any type of cosmetic treatment for the first time do not hesitate to book your consultation now. I promise, you will not regret it. I walked into Dr. Shanthala’s office looking to do something and ended up doing things totally different then what was planned. And I’m glad I went with her recommendation. She truly thinks about her clients and wants you to spend on your most needed improvement. Your money will be wisely spent if you listen to her.... Dr. Shanthala is truly amazing at what she does! She’s thoughtful and caring. Listens to your wants and needs and advises what she thinks is best. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I’m an instant gratification kinda gal. Who thinks more is always better! She cares about her patients and would never do anything that wasn't in their best interest just because that’s what we wanted and were willing to pay. The atmosphere is welcoming and everyone is friendly and kind. I always feel comfortable from the beginning of the procedure, to the end. She talks you through and makes sure you know exactly what’s happening and when. I joked with Marciel as I was booking my next appointment that I will always come to Dr. Shanthala until she stops practicing and even then I may beg her to treat me from home! My lips have never felt fuller and I’ve never had such confidence as I do now!... Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and... Words can’t express my gratitude! 100% satisfied. Wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. Highly recommend! Five star service.

5 Things to Know Before Your First Botox Appointment

In the world of aesthetic enhancement, things have truly changed a great deal over the years. It seems like every other day, some new procedure or skincare treatment comes about, offering clients everything under the sun! And while some of these procedures are the real deal, actually providing great results, the vast majority come and go, without so much as a wrinkle gone.

But, for nearly 2 decades, one name has stood out above the pack, providing clients with amazing results, and helping them turn back the clock – creating, smooth, soft, ageless skin – the world-famous Botox. Whether you’re in New York City, Los Angeles, or Boston Botox is a name that will always ring out, and while many have mixed emotions when they hear the name, the fact remains that Botox has been the number one cosmetic treatment for both men and women of all ages, for over 15 years. In the last year alone, Botox accounted for nearly 50% of all cosmetic treatments amongst women.

At Shanthala MD MedSpa and Laser Center, one of the best Boston Botox specialist, Dr. Shanthala has helped countless women reduce the presence of wrinkles, expression lines, blemishes and more with Botox. Her years of experience, and dedication to her patients, has allowed many to consider her the best Boston Botox specialist. Despite being so effective, and by far the most popular procedure in the world of aesthetic enhancement, many still are truly uneducated on the basics of Botox – and know nothing more than what they’ve seen on episodes of the Real Housewives. To better help you understand what you need to know about Botox, Dr. Shanthala offers these important things to know before your first appointment.

  • Botox is Truly Ageless While pop culture leads us to believe that Botox is almost exclusively for older, upper-class women in their 60’s and 70’s. In reality, Botox works on men and women of all ages, and many Botox patients are in their 30’s and 40’s, some are even in their mid-to-late 20’s! Sure, the main function of Botox is to alleviate the presence of wrinkles and expression lines, and most people with wrinkles are of an advanced age. But the fact is that many young people have wrinkles as well, with many young men experiencing forehead lines and young women dealing with nasolabial folds and under-eye wrinkles. According to Boston Botox specialist, Dr. Shanthala, Botox also offers preventative help as well. It works by stifling the muscles beneath the face temporarily, the same action that helps treat wrinkles, prevents them from developing as well.
  • An Actual Neurotoxin Now this is the part that may scare some clients off, but with years of results you can tell that with proper administration by a well-trained professional like Dr. Shanthala, Botox is 100% safe. Botox works using an actual neurotoxin known as the botulinum-A toxin, which is found in the bacteria Clostridium botulinum – the same toxin that causes botulism. In essence, it is diluted and injected into your muscles within your face to block certain facial expressions, by temporarily paralyzing the muscle. In doing so, these muscles stop moving and over time, the wrinkles will slowly fade away.
  • You Can Still Express Yourself The fact is that while Botox is the most effective cosmetic treatment out there, you will definitely hear the horror stories, that’s unavoidable – but those are almost always cases of allergic reactions that were never discussed with the administrator, or a product of improper, overuse. In the correct concentrations and dosage, Botox is 100% safe. And while it does stifle the facial muscles, this is slight and with proper use you can still smile, cry and express whatever emotions you’d like!
  • Bruising and Redness are Normal Its important to understand that it is very likely you will experience some slight bruising and/or redness along the injection sites, immediately after. But this will normally disappear within the first day or even the first few hours – don’t be worried.
  • The Timeline When it comes to any aesthetic enhancement treatment, you must be aware of the timeline, and don’t expect your results to be too far off from the norm. According to the best Boston Botox specialist, Dr. Shanthala, depending on the size of the treatment area, and the amount of correction needed, the procedure itself can take anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes. Once it is completed, patients should try and avoid over-exposure to the sun, and heavy exercise for the next day or two. You will start to see some results right away, but the majority of them will be visible within 3 to 5 days. And they can last anywhere from 4-8 months. In order to keep results going, re-administration is recommended. For more information on the benefits of Botox treatment, contact Shanthala MD MedSpa and Laser Center today.
