3 Women Discuss The Pros & Cons of Botox
Meet Dr Bri and Alex…
Alex is the host of the ‘This Family Tree’ podcast alongside her husband and is a busy mom of 2. Between navigating the ‘no filter’ phenomenon and the booming cosmetics and beauty industries, she’s contemplating Botox alongside accepting herself for the Raw Beauty she already is.
Dr. Bri is an Emergency Medicine Physician and Aesthetic Medicine practitioner with a gentle touch specializing in safety, integrity, and conservative treatment. A lifelong artist, Dr. Bri has an eye trained for symmetry and subtlety and believes that aging gracefully alongside the use of Botox and fillers is natural, beautiful, and nothing to be ashamed of.
Health and Wellness coach Erin guides both Dr. Bri and Alex through a fascinating conversation behind the highlight reel about what is really means to be a Raw Beauty and choosing what’s best for you. Tune in and let us know what you think!
