I am so stoked... it's been 2 weeks and botox for jawline (masseter) reduction totally worked!!!! The nurse practitioner used 50 units total -- 25 on each side... and my jawline has slimmed... it took 2 weeks but it really worked!!!! It did not hurt and did not disfigure me in the least bit!!!! I'm excited to see how this maintains... we shall see... if it lasts at least 6 months, I will be... more
I wanted more of a crease in my upper eyelid. Went to Dr. Mary Herte for upper eyelid surgery consultation. She told me that my eyes were to small for surgery and that what I need was a brow lift. I am 32 years old and I really don't think I need one. Dr. Herte told me that she can give me a liquid brow lift and It would give me more of a crease in my upper lid. I paid $750 for botox in... more
I have been getting botox since 2005. I never experienced a problem until last May (2013) when I complained to my dr that my eyebrows were not lined up and he suggested I get a proper wax...After my botox appt I went and got my nails done and request an eyebrow wax. 5 days later I could not open my right eye. Apparently the heat of the wax and the pressure applied at that moment caused the... more
I have been wanting to freshen my look up a little and thanks to RealSelf and all of the people that take the time to share, I decided to take the plunge and give Botox a try.
I have many issues I am unhappy about: deep 11's, a third odd horizontal line just under the 11's, crows feet, forehead and last and actually most importantly, my jowls! I decided to ignore the jowls and do the Botox... more
I have deep lines on my forehead and nose, and was told by the doctor that botox would get rid of them. 2 weeks and a lot of money later and I saw no difference on my face. He then injected filling which smoothed it out, but did not get rid of them. I was charged twice for procedures that did not give the results I expected. I would have never have spent the money and time I did if I knew how... more
I have received BOTOX before from another doctor and did not experience much pain, except a little prick. With Dr. Strimling, it was very hard and rough, very painful. The needle seemed larger than normal and I bruised in a few places. I was suprised after I read many reviews. Confused...to say the least. more
I have been reading with interest everyone's comments who have had Botox injections. The reason it is so interesting to me is because this is the second time I have had Botos, 18 units, and I have felt ill, flu like symptoms.Last night I had a lot of anxiety, upset stomach, fatigue and a general listlessness, except for the anxiety.
I beleive that these symptoms are related to Botox. I... more
I had botox injections on the right side of my face to treat a facial twitch ($300.00 copay). I had it done 2 weeks before my wedding because I didn't want my face to twitch on the wedding day. I didn't realize how strong the botox is and how much it would affect the right side of my face.
The only movement on the right side was my eyelid moves, however it moves slower than the... more
Dr. F gave me Botox on my forehead and the outer corners of my eyes. Frankly, I was very thrilled about this -- too many people end up looking "frozen." However, I am delighted with the results. I still look very natural -- but without the deep winkles!
Dr. F is not only a technical expert but she is an artist as well. She prefers a conservative approach; she ways patients can... more
