I went in to my Dermatologist's office almost 1 year ago before a trip I had scheduled to visit an old boyfriend in Colorado (where I used to live). I had just turned 39 years old and my confidence levels were shaky as I had just divorced after a year long separation. Finding myself thrown back into the dating world as a single Mother of a young child I figured I needed to try my best to look... more
This doctor hit me with 25 units of Botox. It was my first time ever using it.

The look like a whitehead only larger and can not be expressed, scraped with a whitehead... more
I had my crows feet done 5 days ago. I seem to have delayed bruising, swelling and dark circles under my eyes, making it look like I have more wrinkles underneath. I wish I had never done this.
