Because I always make a furrowed brow expression, I began to develop deep lines between my eyes, making me look mad all the time. After one treatment of Botox, the muscle contraction settled and the deep lines have softened. I no longer have an "angry" look. I look very refreshed! Dr. Stapenhorst is an expert in his field. Several of my friends have had surgery by him and look amazing. more
I decided to get botox as a preventative. I'm 33, fair skin, but have been careful about sun exposure since my 20's. I don't have much in the way of wrinkles, but would like to avoid them as well. Of course, the dreaded 11's is the place I know they'll show up first, so I decided to "nip it in the bud".
The process was super easy, and didn't hurt at all. I was injected in 5 places. On the... more
I was thinking about botox for awhile, but was nervous about getting it because of the things I heard about it. I'm 54 and was starting to get noticable wrinkles in my forehead, crows feet area and upper lip. It made me look very tired. After speaking with the PA Elisa, I decided to do it, she answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. I am so glad I went thru with it. I... more
I had a sever line on the right side that ate make-up. Tired of dealing, I went to my PS office to talk about options. I got 30 units free from Allergen with the purchase of my breast implants, so I gave it a whirl. It took me 3 days and the line was GONE. The injection nurse used 20 total, but was cautious about putting so much in the forehead: it can lead to eye-droop. I don't feel that my... more
I had botox in the 11 lines between my brows. I have always had a tendency to furrow ever since I was little watching TV or looking at the computer. My creases were at times so bad I would get "tan lines" in the sun if I relaxed my forehead. The lines had recently started showing up in pictures and I knew I had to do something to at least keep the creases from getting worse if... more
At 42, I had 11 lines & wanted to try Botox to see what it would do. My doctor started me out conservatively and injected the 11 lines, the middle of the forehead, and my crow's feet (even though I don't have crow's feet, he said it was best to inject this area to balance out the Botox in the 11's). I felt no pain and had no swelling or side effects. About three days later... more
I decided to have Botox after seeing my badly-lined forehead in photos.
I've had the procedure 3 times now, and have averaged the price. I try to go when the salon has specials at $9 a unit and cheapest I paid was $216.
The procedure was slightly painful, but was over in 5 minutes. Five injections across the top of the forehead and 2 at the top of the nose. I did not have any... more
I had botox injections a few weeks ago to eliminate line between brows, on forehead and around eyes. I had botox injections before and they seemed to do the trick however I would sometimes feel sick for about a week after the injections.
Because of this I chose to have the injections done over several weeks time and would start with one area and then a week later address another and so on.... more
