My Invitation to a Botox Party

Last week I got an invitation from a friend to a Botox party at her home this weekend.  She's 38, and she was telling us in the Evite, "everyone thinks I look great, and now I am going to share my secret." So she has already been having these shots!

How is she going to keep this up for the next fifty years (the average life expectancy of women is now well up into the 80's)?

Those shots hurt. I've had them all: Botox, Restylane, Juvederm. Every couple of years, a new and better one comes along -- fewer clumps, fewer bruises. But you still have to get those shots very 3-6 months. And never mind the cost, it's the pain. For some reason, and I think it's the places I have them done (around the lips), I find them painful even with topicals. 

I'd love to hear some opinions besides my own.
