I came for botox because at 41 I feel like I look older than I am. Maybe it's genetics or maybe it's all the sun I took in when I was younger. But I decided I needed to do something about it that wasn't invasive, too expensive and something I knew worked. I was so incredibly with the doctors... READ MORE

I had procedures with Dr. Cho to reduce my masseter muscles twice, the first time was with Botox and went well but the second time I was convinced by the head nurse there, Heather, to try dysport and treatment was completely ineffective. My guess is that Dr. Cho used the wrong kind of needle... READ MORE

My 62 birthday was 2 weeks away. I had just had my lip lines Juverdermed and now just needed my frown lines to diminish...wanted to look pretty and refreshed for an awesome summer. I had exciting events planned and was so looking forward to it. So the $$$ invested hurt a lot; but it was... READ MORE

It is bad enough reaching your 50's and looking in the mirror and wondering who is staring back at you, but I am in the position of having been seriously ill after being diagnosed with an auto-immune. It has taken me almost five years to get back on my feet again .... But now is the time to... READ MORE

After years, and I do, literally, mean years, of asking around - to numerous/various specialists about botox treatment for masseter muscle problems (I clench my jaw at night and have tmj/masseter hypertrophy) , Dr. Schlecter was the only person who had even heard of it and was willing to do it....

I had a breast augmentation November 1st (see separate review) and received 20 units of Botox courtesy of Allergan. I was excited - but nervous! - for my first treatment. I told Dr Vennemeyer that I wanted to go ahead and have the deep wrinkles in my forehead and my crow's feet done as well as... READ MORE

When I first went to Dr. Colgrove regarding reducing the effects of sun damage and aging, I was VERY apprehensive. I have never had any procedures performed. The staff was very polite, professional, and courteous. After a through exam, Dr. Colgrove discussed in detail what procedure would... READ MORE

I've posted a few reviews on RealSelf, but never for Botox, which was the first procedure I ever had. I'm a male, 49, and work in the entertainment industry, which is very youth-oriented. Most of my clients are younger than me and I try to look "good for my age" rather than younger. I've seen... READ MORE

I am writing this for other women because I wish I had known more about all the bad side effects before getting botox. I'm 36 and have several friends who had it done and loved the results so I thought I would try it. I was never told about any potential bad side effects by the doctor, and... READ MORE

Thanks to my genetics I started seeing deep lines in my forehead at the age of 24 they only got deeper and I was super self conscious well today I finally got them taken care of with botox today and I'm already so thankful I did I will definitely be going back as needed. The pain was very mild... READ MORE

I normally have uneven eyebrows. My left one sits and arches higher than my right. I like to get Botox to even them out, and usually need 2 extra units above the left. I warned dr mash before the injection but my left is still spiking. She did say to come back if they were uneven so I will be... READ MORE

I decided to chop off all my hair (about 20+ inches), and do a super funky fauxhawk....which exposed my forehead wrinkles! Where did this happen? I'm way too young for this. I went to Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre and had a consult with Dr Martin Braun. He decided to do botox on my... READ MORE

I had what you would call oily skin. I started getting botox about 2 years ago just in the forehead and number 11's. Botox has completely changed the texture of my skin..it is now dry and horrible!! Now when I get a pimple it scars as there is no oil in my face to help it heal. I regret getting... READ MORE

I had botox injected around my eyes. Total 40 units. Two days later I noticed that my vision has changed. On Day 3 it got worse. I see well when I am not moving my head, when I turn my head certain ways I see blurring and double, the feeling is weird walking out like that. I was wondering how... READ MORE

I was interested in Botox to treat a deep horizontal forehead wrinkle that would appear when I would raise my eyebrows dramatically. The RN Kristi recommended since it was my first time, we start on the conservative side. I got 10 units of Botox and could not be happier with the result. The... READ MORE

I am turning 60 years old in 2 weeks and decided it was time to do something for myself. I am frequently being told I look tired when in fact I'm not tired. I feel much younger than I look in the mirror. My husband and I have a cruise planned for my birthday so now was a perfect time to do... READ MORE

I opted for the Botox for masseter reduction due to an overly prominent jawline. Dr. Yoo was comfortable to talk to and had a very gentle hand. He is skilled at his art and the injections were painless. I did not bruise and the results were great! My face looked slimmer and the procedure... READ MORE

I got it done because I found myself frowning.....when I wasn't intending too. I prefer for my face not to reflect all of the aggravation. At any rate. I got 20 units to my forehead. I didn't have any bad side effects. It reached the preferred results in about 6 days. At first I was... READ MORE

As I was approaching a major life event I started considering the possibility of working on a fresher appearance both to boost self confidence and as a reward for years of hard work that had visibly taken a toll on my body. Dr. Emer was recommended to me both by friends and colleagues in... READ MORE

I've been thinking about having botox for the past year but had to wait as I was still breastfeeding my youngest son. He's been weaned since last August but it took me a while to finally pluck up the courage to do it, I have a couple of lines on my forehead, the one above my right eyebrow is... READ MORE
