Over the years, there have been a ton of party ideas targeted at ladies: Avon, book clubs, Tupperware…the list goes on and on with equally unexciting options.
None of those parties are fun, but Tupperware parties are basically the antithesis of fun. There, we said it. The drinking and laughing with your favorite girlfriends is fun, sure. But then you go home and all you have to show for your evening are a hoard of plastic reminders that you need to organize your pantry. As we all know, nothing screams fun like pantry organizing!
So how do you get a group of friends together for something a little more exciting than Tupperware and more stimulating than book-0f-the-month discussions? Botox.
Botox is the perfect excuse to gather your most daring friends together and have a little fun. It is the safe alternative for girls that are too apprehensive or embarrassed about going to a doctor’s office alone. The party can take place in your own home (decorated to perfection, of course), providing a relaxing environment for your friends.
Dr Paul Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Beverly Hills who is well known for Botox and Botox parties had this to say at CBSNews, “It’s a great way for people to meet each other and it’s a comfortable way for patients to get Botox.”
Like all good hosts, you’ll want to make sure you provide the safest experience for your friends.
Here are some insider tips on throwing a great Botox party:
Compile a guest list of your funniest, up-for-anything friends
Similar to every other party in the history of ever, the success of your Botox party depends on the guests. Invite a maximum of six girls (or brave guys!) and give them a few weeks to decide if Botox is something they want to try. Nobody should feel pressured into doing something they don’t want to, so be sure to be well researched on Botox and fill your friends in on the possible results and risks.
Find a reputable Botox doctor you trust
Botox Cosmetic is an aesthetic procedure and should always be administered by a qualified physician. This is your face we’re talking about, ladies! If you have had Botox before, ask your doctor if Botox parties are a service he/she offers. Many aesthetic spas have facilities set up for Botox parties and would be happy to consult with you. You can locate doctors that perform this procedure here.
Make sure your doctor has insurance and provides consent forms for everyone getting Botox
These aren’t the typical details that go into party planning, but they’re vital to having a Botox party that is successful and safe. Your doctor should have insurance to cover anything that could possibly go wrong and provide a consent form so all of your guests are probably educated on the procedure.
Discuss topical numbing agents with your doctor
While pain from Botox is very manageable, chances are there are a few guests that are apprehensive. As a kindness to them, discuss possible pain relief options with your doctor.
Create fun, non-alcoholic beverages
We know…a party without alcohol, where’s the fun in that? But it’s very important that you and your guests don’t consume alcohol before or during the procedure. While you’re encouraged to have fun, you have to remember that this is a cosmetic procedure. Plus, this is the perfect excuse to make some of those delectable non-alcoholic drinks you keep seeing on Pinterest.
(Really, really) Spring clean your party room
Unleash your inner Monica Geller and make sure your party room is spotless. We know you would never have guests over to a messy home, but it is important that everything is scrupulously clean since Botox Cosmetic is a medical procedure. Would you have an aesthetic injection performed at spa that was covered in dog hair or leftover pizza boxes and beer cans? Neither would your friends.
That’s it! Of course, you can also make the party themed, provide great snacks, and compile a fun playlist to add to the experience. Whatever additional party favors you offer, your friends aren’t going to soon forget that you provided them with a fun and safe way to feel beautiful.
