I had Botox two weeks ago in my frown lines and forehead, I'm 26 but I had bad premature ageing in this area so decided to give Botox a try.
I had 39 units, 25 in my frown lines and 14 in my forehead, the procedure took minutes and the pain was minimal. I had swelling around the injection sites for 5 minutes, it was totally gone by the time I left the clinic.
I did get some bruising, it was similar to what you get after a blood test, it was easy to cover with makeup and went away in a few days. I did get a headache after the procedure and I felt slightly dizzy for a week. I did not get any drooping. On the fourth day I noticed the lines had almost completely smoothed out and my forehead looked great!
I can still raise the outer two thirds of my eyebrow, it looks very natural (as natural as a Botoxed forehead can look that is!). I'll definitely be getting Botox again, it's been a very positive experience for me.
I highly recommend, they three options when getting botox, you can use a nurse ($12 per unit), cosmetic dermatologist ($14 per unit) or cosmetic surgeon ($17 per unit). I consulted with a plastic surgeon and had the procedure done by a nurse, the nurse I used only does injectable and laser procedures so she was very experienced and knowledgeable.
