Previously, I have had botox for the glabella/forehead area before. But I also was bothered by the "golf ball chin" and my wider jaw. I actually found him from the realself website where he wrote a response about botox being used for the jaw/chin. I decided to try it and he did a great job! Everyone is different but for my case, I needed about 15 units of botox for each side of my jaw and... more
After seeing Dr. Kolstad for lip augmentation I became interested in trying Botox to soften forehead lines. Since this was my first experience with Botox I felt nervous as I have seen many people who have had Botox performed by other doctors and you know where they had it all injected (not the look I wanted) After talking with Dr. Kolstad I again felt confident to go ahead and have it done. ... more
Dr. Sabrina Fabi is an expert in the field of botox application and fillers(Restalyne). I feel that she is honest and sensitive when discussing my facial appearance and has my best interests at heart. I have been totally happy under her supervision and appreciate her expertise. Today I had botox with very little pain - more like a pinch. The last time she used botox it lasted almost a year... more
I went to Dr. Pousti for several times for Botox because I had deep lines between my brows. The injections were effective and I looked much better without those lines. The cost would vary depending on how much I needed and how many areas were treated. Eventually I decided I wanted him to give me a forehead lift so I don't need to get Botox any more, but it was a good way to see how I looked... more

I feel devastated and I'm in very bad mood since then specially cuz my eyes are what I... more
I'm in my late 20s and wanted to take some action in preventing the development of the wrinkles around my eyes. I have a tendency to get pronounced more than 1 inch long crows feet when I smile even though I fpractice a very healthy life style and follow my skin care regimen religiously. It started to change my apparence and shake my confidence. I started to avoid smiling as much as I could... more
Experience pretty good, injected near jaw line
Day of injection- no pain during injection- KEY IS TO ICE WHILE IN LOBBY, WHILE IN EXAM ROOM, immediately after injection, and exiting doc office! (My face was ice cold for radiesse injections!- didnt feel the prick of the needle)
2nd day- some mild soreness like returning from dental office after novacain injection
Waiting for end... more
This was my first Botox experience and I'm beyond thrilled with the results. I'm in my early 30s and was just starting to notice my first frown lines. What bothered me more then the lines themselves however was the lumpy appearance that had developed between my eyes that made me appear tense even at rest. It took about two days for me to see the results and now I have no visible lines or lumps... more
I could never spend money on wrinkle creams knowing Botox exists. For wrinkles, there is nothing more effective out there, and if well done, results can be natural and last months. It is skill-dependent, so be very careful who you allow to inject you. I wish I started using Botox in my 30's because it has the added advantage of preventing deeper creases. It's a fantastic discovery in the world... more
I've had both previously. Never had any issues with either. my first juverderm injections were about 4 years ago and have only had botox regularly since. Until this past Tuesday I had both. I do recall mild botox headaches in the past. This time I experienced some severe neck pain two days after both botox and juvederm injections. That is how I came across this website. I wondered if the botox... more
I had Botox three times with great results, but the fourth time - nothing. It simply stopped working. My dermatologist - board certified, very reputable - invited me into his private office and called Allergan's representative on his speakerphone with me present, and Allergan's rep said about 10% of all cosmetic patients eventually become immune to it and it will never work again. The... more
Pros: Hmmmm... none.
Cons: I wasted $2000 between Botox and Juviderm ... result is = I look OLDER! More wrinkly, just awful!! In the mornings it is like a nightmare! My eyes are so puffy! unbelievable! I hate botox. Never again.
I just turned 40 so I wanted to look refreshed and better, boy was I wrong!
I am $2000 down the drain, $550 per injection of Botox (2) and the Juviderm... more
I have been going to Dr. H for over 5years now. He performs my Botox injections, and I have always been extremely happy with my results. He listens to the concerns that I have without pressuring to perform surgeries. He has a fantastic bedside manner and as a nurse I regard this highly.
Recently, I tried Juvederm and I loved the results. He is extremely skilled because all he specializes... more
I got Botox and fillers as a deep wrinkle preventative. I also want to get my eyes done soon, as stated above.
I began seeing Dr. H for Botox injections and Juvederm fillers for my lips and smile lines in '08 when I was 25 yrs. old. Many of my friends said I was too young to get Botox injections, but when I did, they couldn't even tell. :-) I could still move my face, but my fine... more
I am 35 and had always looked younger than my age. However, I've had horizontal lines on my forehead since I was in my early 20s from having a very expressive face. I decided to try botox when one day when I noticed I vertical lines between my brows and really felt I was starting to look my age. I have got botox twice now in the last 6 months. I totally love it. I look much more relaxed... more
Staff was really professional and nice. Dr K was awesome! This was my first procedure of this kind, he explained the procedure to me step by step and made me feel comfortable.It was pain free and worked great, just like he said it would. Excellent results, I will absolutely be back again and will refer others. Thank you!! more
My Dr. is amazing! His staff is friendly and informative. I was a little worried about getting this done...I was afraid it was going to hurt. Literally, I did not feel a thing! He simply has magic hands.I was recently in a casino in Las Vegas and every time I stepped onto the casino floor I was carded (noone else in my group was!) I was feeling a little insecure about some forming wrinkles,... more
Could not be happier. 65 Units the first time-my eyebrows have always gone straight across. My provider gave them a small arch like a mini lift. Line in forhead gone and my crowsfeet look like they did 15 years ago. I also had a couple units by my mouth because it pulls downward making me look like I frown all the time and creating deep lines.I have also had Juvederm b more
I did it to get rid of the deep frown in center of forehead. They did a LPL full face first then injected 30 units they say of Botox. Was injected by a RN nurse. I did not feel anything.Is the amount safe and I had no side effects except a minor headach. I noticed the wrinkle is still here and they inidcated they would fill it with a filler more
I tried the Botox to get off of medications. It did help with the pain but I became ill and had bad headaches and I have this constant tingling in my shoulder. Also my muscles were so sore and very weak that other muscles over compensated and became so tense I could hardly move. I actually looked lopsided from this, the left side of my body was higher than the right. The right side is where... more
