Had my first experience with Botox and Juvederm fillers at Dr. Ratliff's office and just love the results. The botox completely eliminated wrinkles between my brows and crows feet around my eyes. I had some filler [Juvederm?] put around my lips to erase some vertical lines. The result is just fabulous! It is 6 months later and the vertical lines are still invisible. The botox is wearing off... more
I love botox. I've been receiving botox four times a year for 8 years. I'm 36 and I don't have any wrinkles. I get 20 units every time. I've had zero adverse side effects. I would highly recommend it but please go somewhere good with a licensed dr or nurse to administer. My lady is a nurse and I have been going to her for several years. I sped roughly $850 per year. more
2nd time for Botox! I noticed I started getting that 11 between the eyebrows and the line across the forehead, so once a year for my birthday I have what I like to call the "frozen forehead" package. It's actually helped with my migraines too...I wonder how I could get a prescription for that... It's helped my skin stay tight which helps my makeup go on smoother and requires less touch ups... more
It really does matter who you go to!! It is usually not any more to go to a plastic surgeon. I also feel like I get more bang for my buck when I use a PS. I get it around my eyes and to give my forehead a slight lift. I am almost 38 now and even after it has worn off, the wrinkles are barely noticeable when I am not smiling. I look so rested!! more
I decided to get a small dose (15 units) of Botox to my forehead/eyebrows last week. I am very impressed with the results! It was practically painless, and in about 7 days, I found a drastic improvement in my lines. I do not have significant wrinkles at this point, so this was more for prevention and smoothing. I feel that I got enough product to make a noticeable difference, but not enough to... more
I got botox shots for the area between my eyebrows. They did three shots in that area. After a couple of days it kicked in and the muscle that moves the brows together didn't move when I tried to make them. It lasted a little over three months and slowly wore off. Now I just try to not move my forehead so much when I talk or read. I will do it again if I feel I am overworking the muscles again... more
I had botox for the first time 5 days ago and I love the results. There was little pain and I had no swelling or bruising. I did get a headache the next day, but I have them often so I'm hesitant to blame it on the botox.
One thing that I was very surprised by is how it seemed to lift the brow. In my case, this is more of an improvement than helping with the frown... more
