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 forehead, my "11"s, and a tiny bit in my chin. The results are amazing. I do think there was a little bit... more
I have droopy eyelids and frown. My muscle on my forehead I could feel it being tense all the time. I had to focus on relaxing it often and massaging it. Immediately with the botox I felt it just relax. Even if it didn't have improvement in my looks that alone would make it worth it. Only after one day my eyelids/brow has come up. I no longer feel like I look like I am scowling at people.... more
I was 38 years old, just wanted to 'refresh' my look so decided to get botox. I really had no noticable wrinkles but could see the start of some and a friend was going so thought why no do some 'preventative' botox . I got it done at a dr's office in Vancouver in June of 2012...5 days later I woke up with swollen puffy eyes. It looked like I was punched in the face. I spent an hour... more
I'm 38, and had crows feet and and my eyebrows seemed to be dropping. I was getting " old eyes". He listened to my complaints and fixed it!!! His expierience shows in the work he does. I am comfortable and confident in Dr.Buonassisi and his staff. Everyone through every step was able to answer all my questions. more
So far so good but it is just six hours later. I had 40 units injected into my forehead frown lines which have always been a source of grief for me...especially now that I have a super high-resolution camera that picks up all of it!!! more
I'm forty-one and had my square jawline slimmed with two botox injections appts spaced a month apart. As with all the botox I've had, it was very effective. The trouble is, the loss of volume there made me look jowly. I have, in effect paid good money to look older! Beware of this treatment if you are over forty or have some skin laxity in your face already! more
I'm 23 - I originally got Botox on the recommendation of my orthodontist - in the muscles beside my nose to reduce my gummy smile. The Botox works by relaxing the muscles that lift your upper lip when you smile - now my lip lifts just above my teeth. Much better than the alternatives - gum grafting or surgery. I figured while I was there I would ask about the fine lines forming on my... more
I'm 26 turning 27 this year and don't have any lines. The reason I got botox is because I frown too much -- I do it subconsciously all the time! So I went to the doc, he analyzed my frowning and because I "have such thick muscles", recommended 30 units.
He did two shots in the Glabeller lines on each side, then three shots (on each side) right above the eyebrow. This was... more
I went in on a whim with a friend who was having it done. I had not planned to get it, but decided I would treat myself to an early birthday present.Pros- smooth forehead.Cons- I'm terrified that I've hurt my baby! I recently found out I'm pregnant and just realized, with horror, that I conceived right around the same time I got 16 units of botox to my forehead more
