I am a 32 year old mother of 2 so the wrinkles have officially begun. I have not had any previous procedures like this but have wanted to try botox for it's preventative benefits. I have very strong forehead muscles and frown lines (see pic, yikes!) so I thought I would be a good candidate. Andrea took her time and talked me through each step. The procedure began with her marking the injection... more
I'm so glad I had this procedure done. The lines on my forehead were driving me crazy! The lines are gone and I'm much more confident in the way I look. I felt great afterward. No headaches like you often hear about. The nurse, Andrea, front desk staff, Gretta and Claire were all fantastic! I'll go back again and again! more

I had fine results with a Raleigh office in the past, but when I had my last appt. in JANUARY, there was a new nurse doing injections. I had filler along the laugh lines and botox in the forehead. Well, she injected too close to the surface and I was left with granulomas on both sides of the nose. She then plastered my face with mineral-makeup, which I do not use, and I almost fainted when I... more
I have been getting Botox at Dr. L's office for 4 years. I drive from Chapel Hill and it is worth the trip. The price I am payig now is far less than I paid before. i thiknk they are using less Botox to get the same result. I have been consistently happy since I started going there 4 years ago. I will probably never start. My advice is too look for an office that uses a lot of Botox. They... more

It didn't last at all. And I was never really happy. I did it because my husband passed away and I felt like it really took a toll on my eyes.I read that the doctor can make the solution weak by the amount of saline added to bottle. I had my injection on April 8th and you would never know it now. I had 20 units.How do I know for next time. What questions do I ask? Or does Botox not work on... more
I had botox injected into my crow's feet. They are gone, however, the skin under my eyes is baggy, saggy, and puffy. I am embarrassed to smile because I look like a freak. I am learning that the human face is a beautiful and delicate system of interrelated muscles. If you knock out one part, the rest overcompensates to bring back the balance. I would never ever ever do this again, or any other... more
I've had a couple of Botox treatments focusing on my forehead. I have a line that runs across the length of my forehead that's rather deep and ages me beyond my years.
My dermatologist injected me not in the line as I would have thought, but targeted the muscles in the forehead that caused that line to be there.
It took about 3-7 days, but sure enough, it disappeared. It was amazing really.... more
