I just turned 40 this year and it seemed like,overnight, my " Number 11" appeared. I take very good care of myself. I eat right, workout almost everyday and get the right amount of sleep. I never saw myself as the Botox "type". I thought long and hard about it and decided to give it a try. Happy I did!! more
The skin under my eyes was loose, crepe paper like and sagging. I always looked tired to myself and people would comment that I looked like I needed a good night's sleep. Despite looking more youthful otherwise, no under eye lotion, serum or cream improved the texture or appearance of the under eye area. I began reading online and found Real Self. Dr. Marc Cohen recommended a combination of... more
I am very fair-skinned and come from a long line of poorly-aging ancestors. We all look to be about 10 years older than we actually are... We wrinkle-up like raisins starting in our 20s!
Anyway, I had serious "11s" which are the "angry lines" between the brows. I also had deep, deep wrinkles across my forehead - you know, the kind you see when you raise your eyebrows? ...Except mine stayed... more
I normally have uneven eyebrows. My left one sits and arches higher than my right. I like to get Botox to even them out, and usually need 2 extra units above the left. I warned dr mash before the injection but my left is still spiking. She did say to come back if they were uneven so I will be returning. I do prefer dysport, but she offers groupons for Botox. You can't beat the price. I find... more
Needed to feel better about my appearance and felt that botox would be helpful. My friend had a facelift done by Alan B. Brackup, M.D. and it was wonderful so I went to see him. I have had botox in the past by some very well known doctors and never have I had the result I had when Dr. Brackup treated me. He and his staff are professional, friendly and above all they want their patients to... more
Very happy with the results. I would recommend this procedure for the treatment of frown lines and fine lines around eyes. Within 3 days of Botox treatment, my frown lines completely disappeared and the fine lines around my eyes were greatly diminished. botox minimises my ability to raise my eyebrows but it doesn't immoblise them, thank goodness, so the effect is very natural. My wrinkles... more
I went to this dr 6 years ago for fillers that cost about 600 and did absolutely nothing. I figured I would try Botox since it is the only one I know in my area. I asked for the other doctor but wound up with Dr Gabay anyway. It didnt work. In fact it created new wrinkles. I went back and he added more but it still didnt work right. more
First timer. Botox and Restylane injections in my left glabellar region. Bad headache for two days, resolved with imitrex. Now struggling with exhaustion, fatigue, vertigo, lighthededness, mild nausea from Day 1 until today (Day 4). Resting, but frightened because I don't know how long it will last. Anyone want to share that? Plastic surgeon has been very attentive. more
Pros: Fine lines are totally gone, but my forehead does not have a "frozen" look. I can still raise my eyebrows. Crow's feet are gone and under my eyes are improved as well which is a secondary benefit...totally unexpected! :)
Cons; None!! more
I live in New Jersey and went to THE MEDICAL SPA at Rizzieri's Salon & Spa in Marlton, NJ. I had researched Botox for 2 years before deciding to give it a shot. I also researched area doctors, their length of experience and the cost. I settled on Dr. Donna Wilcox at THE MEDICAL SPA.
She was very thorough, explained everything and really took her time with me. I had a lot of... more
I am 33 and a red head with fair skin. This year I noticed a line that did not go away between my eyes so when a livingsocial deal came across I thought I would give it a go. I got 15ccs on my forehead. It felt like a slight pinch, really less than a bee sting even, and was in and out in less than 20 minutes and went back to work.
Over the next few weeks the results just kept improving. I... more
Botox is over hyped and the results are far from premanent. Infact for me it lasted just 2 months and that too, with rashes. When the doctor administered the injections, i did not feel much pain. Once i got home i realised that the rashes and the swelling seemed to be far more than what i had been told. It took about 3 weeks for my face to become normal again and just one month after that, i... more
