I finally decided to get Botox after nursing my son for 2 yrs. I felt it was a treat for enduring and embracing motherhood. First of I will say I am a fainter. I fainted my entire pregnancy and am very susceptible to heat stroke. I wasn't nervous or scared Nor did the procedure hurt. I did however FAINT. That night I felt extremely sick, I had a terrible headache and felt a heaviness to my... more
I've been getting Botox treatment for several years. I typically get 40 to 60 units at a time. The effects are dramatic and wear off gradually over 6 months. I buy a deal from Groupon, Amazon Local, or Living Social when available. Otherwise, my plastic surgeon's office charges only $10 per unit. 123 more
I originally when to Dr. Attaran for a breast Aug, and came back for a follow up after my procedure and decided to try him out for Botox too!
Once I got Botox from Dr. Attaran I wouldn't go anywhere else. His attention to detail is what makes him so unique. He spends time examining my individual muscles to determine the best corse of action to get the BEST results. I never look overdone or... more
I wanted to try it for the experience but I only did it once. The idea of shooting poison into my body just didn't feel right. It did remove the wrinkles and there was no negative, but the results are short-lived. I prefer something more permanent. I only did the forehead area so I had no problems with losing expression in my face. I would do it again for a special occassion.
I have decided... more
I had "11" lines between my eyebrows due to perpetual frowning and wanted to prevent deeper wrinkles from developing.
Pros: 1. Dr. Mabrie is Board Certified and only works on faces. 2. I got a clear estimate of cost prior to my treatment. 3. Was able to get consultation and treatment done at first visit saving time and waiving consultation fee. 4. Charges by the area not by the... more
I've had Botox treatments many times for my forehead lines (the # 11 between my brows and crows feet). Because I have such strong muscles in those areas, I require significantly more units than the average person, hence the higher cost.) It takes me 10 to 14 days to see real results and they are fabulous. Unfortunately, they only last about 8 to 10 weeks for me.
I was considering... more
I use it to inject into masseter muscle in jaw to reduce TMJ. It works great. I have the injection every 8 months or so, and it really beats having to wear a mouth-guard every night (yuk). Also makes my jaw look a bit less "square" since it relieves the muscle build-up in my jaw muscles. Also makes chewing food easier and more pleasant (less painful). What can I say, for me - it just... more
Iam a 31yr old female with the beginnings of crows feet. I decided, after a lot of thought, to give botox a shot.I got a very small amount - supposedly the smallest my Dr. administers - to my crows feet. Not worth it.It's now been 3 days and I am experiencing some side effects. The insomnia and anxiety is the worst. I literally have not slept more than 1/2 an hour in the more
I am 41, and got two botox treaments (two different injection sites per treatment) this year, for $300 per tube, two tubes per treatment. My plastic surgeon is well known and performed the injections- one over each eyebrow and one near the outside of each eye.
The results were stunning, but botox does definitely make you feel a little weird. I had no bruising or swelling... more
Works great. Had 2 dermabrasions years ago which tightened the lines but facial expressions brought them back. Botox is excellent. I went from always looking stressed to having people say how relaxed I look. I do get black and blue marks that last 4-6 days. I hear this is rare. I have started to limit any advil type product a week prior to the... more
I am a 52 years old woman of Indian origin and i live in LA. I recently got Botox injections after much consiideration and reccomendation of my friends. I had astonishingly hard frown lines all over my forehead and temples.
Botox made them disappear within just a day and i was very very happy. The injectons were very mild and relatively painless after the ice that was rubbed on my... more
