The wrinkles around my eyes were starting to show. I heard of Botox while in the office for another procedure and decided to try it. It felt like a pinch and was done in about a minute or two. I got a bit of a head ache after the first treatment (have done 2 so far and doing my 3rd in a few weeks). I found the results were amazing. No more wrinkles after a 3 day waiting period. The results... more
I'm 47 and have been doing botox a couple times a year for at least the past five years. I get in on my forehead, crowsfeet and neck bands. I've always loved the results. Never a problem, never too frozen or shiny. Never bruising. Never.
However, recently, I moved to a new state and found a new highly touted injector, but not a doctor (first big mistake!!! what was I thinking!!!) I went last... more
I am 40 years old and had Botox and Restylane injections for the first time three years ago. I had Botox for my crow's feet and Restylane for marionette lines. My results were great. The Restylane lasted about 14 months and the Botox about 4 months. I had Botox one more time before moving to another city and getting pregnant. Again, the results were great. I waited for about a year after the... more
I went with a friend to get Botox for the first time on Friday. It's Monday now and I am absolutely pleased. I took some professional pictures a few weeks ago and after they were photo shopped I realized how much I have aged. Even so, I was pretty nervous about getting needles poked into my head. Amazingly it didn't hurt as badly as I anticipated. I had about three rows done on my forehead and... more
I had botox a couple times.. Only in my forehead & between my eyes. Last time was about a year ago. I have a dent in my forehead above my left eyebrow now that was for sure 100% not there before. I have spasms around it, and also right in between my eyes feels full with fluid like it needs to be sqeezed out. it hurts to the touch and I have frontal headaches now.
I have never had a... more
I asked my plastic surgeon to be conservative as this was my first time having Botox. One week out, I am extremely pleased with the results. I just look like I'm having a great day!
I appreciate the fact that, on this forum, I was able to ask about the scary side effects listed on the website. Several doctors set my mind at ease, and as a result I had the nerve to go through with the... more
Very easy, no downtime with excellent results. I had my crows feet done 2 months ago and a another follow up today, same price for .28 grams each visit. My face is showing age and wanted help in growing older gracefully. more
I had botox from sept 2008 - sept 2009 with wonderful results & no side effects. I was getting it for free in exchange for outside work I was doing for my derm, who I have been seeing happily for years for other non cosmetic issues.
I got it again 3 weeks ago because I had a very important job interview. I got it on a Tuesday on on Saturday I woke up so ill with nausea & vertigo I... more
I went to a girlfriend's botox party out of curiousity and to support her. She told us it was $10 per unit so it sounded cheap until I found out that I need 20 units just between my brows nevermind all the other areas. It worked beautifully but I'm not convinced $460 in a good price to have two areas done. I'm here simply looking for what the best price I could get to do a similar... more
I'm 39. I've been gettting botox for years--started with furrow in my forehead, crept to forehead lines, then crow's feet...then mouth frown (felt my mouth at rest was too downturned, making me look old and giving me an odd expression when not smiling. First of all, I now see a very reputable plastic surgeon for botox--though I did go to some of the well known med spa's in the... more
I love botox! I was so reluctant to do it because i did nto want to look fake or unnatural.I started botox sept 2009. The results were astounding for me. I am a fit 39 yo mother of 2 that takes great care of herself. Problem is I am very expressive and have deep forehead furrows and very deep line between the brows.When my derm finally convinced me to do botox for my 20th high school reunion I... more
I just had my second treatment of Botox. First treatment was 4 1/2 months ago. Loved the results then, but loving it even more now. Had injections around the eyes, between the brows, forehead and one injection each side of the jaw (to lift the frown line). It's been 2 days -- but each day my skin gets smoother and smoother. I am 52 years old, and feel this has... more
I went to a spa to get an overall assessment of my skin and some ideas about how to achieve a more youthful look. The physician told me that I would get the most "bang for your buck" with botox. He said it would take 10 years off of me and that there was extremely low risk involved and almost no pain. This was absolutely not my experience.
Although he numbed the area with a topical agent, I... more
Wow, this works ! I am 57 and have been pretty lucky with respect to wrinkles, but finally the forehead and eyebrow lines were getting to me. I am so happy with the natural look, lines and creases not 100% gone, but nicely diminished.
Injections were painfree, couldn't even find them. No swelling or bruising at all. I don't find the slight stiff feeling in forehead and around eyes... more
