I had Botox on Saturday for the first time. I didn't know what to expect, but I have been thinking about it for about a year now. I am 27 years old and my forehead horizontal lines are becoming more permanent fixtures on my face, likely from sun damage and staring at a computer all day. I had a very strong "1" and a slight "11" according to the doctor, and she said that since I am younger, Botox would be a great option for me to help with the horizontal forehead lines. It was $8.00/unit of Botox and I had 43 units administered. I had a $50 coupon for it though, so it was $294 for 43 units.
It felt like 5 little pinches on my forehead, two between my eyebrows, and one a bit lower between my eyebrows that was more painful, but definitely tolerable.
yesterday, (one day post-botox) i had a very light bruising sensation near the injection sites, but no bruising. I had a few reddish dots at the injection sites too, but again, nothing that concealer couldn't handle.
so almost 3 days out, i can see a slight difference already in my forehead wrinkles and am pleased with my decision to get Botox.
So, with this being my first time, anyone with advice or info on what to expect in the next few days or weeks I would love to hear it!!! :)

Dr. McKenna said i have a great forehead result but i should have come back within a week vs. a month. Their "touch-up" policy is that they will do up to 10 additional units within 7 days after the injection for free.
He injected 10 additional units between my eyebrows and charged me for 8 ($64). he said to come back in may or june and it should be fine and on schedule. I posted another picture to show what lines I am referring to, again... this is one month out from original botox injection and before the 10-additional units injected today. I will post another photo in a week. The total cost of the botox is now $358 for 53 units of botox.
Hi everyone! after the 'touch-up' administered by...

Also, I never bruised or had swelling at the injection sites
I chose to come to Shape Med because I have my laser hair removal done here and they have received the Black Diamond distinction from Allegran (maker of Botox), which is great considering how affordable it is.
