I'm only 27 but I have one very annoying line...
- 11 Apr 2012
I'm only 27 but I have one very annoying line between my eyebrows. I went through an abusive marriage and whenever I saw that wrinkle I thought of all the times I frowned or was sad and I couldn't stand the fact that even though some of the worst years in my life were over, they had left a mark on my face right between my brows.
I was super nervous about getting Botox after all the horror stories I had heard. I scheduled an appointment and canceled it because my nerves were so bad. I found a different office that had an actual doctor administering the Botox, not just a nurse, which made me feel better. The receptionist assured me that they had never had any problems with sagging eye lids, infection etc. So I got the guts and went in.
I told the doctor I wanted as little as possible, so I had 15 units done. She advised me that the results with 15 units would not be as good as with 25 units, and that I could come back after a few days if I felt like I needed more. She injected the Botox and I kind of had a panic attach afterwards. I got nauseous and dizzy. I dont believe this had anything to do with the Botox, it was just me being a baby and freaking out that I was going to have some sort of awful reaction and die (seriously, I'm that much of a worry wart). The dr let me lay down and gave me an ice pack. After a few minutes I was back to normal. They were super nice and understanding.
The day after my Botox I was a little more tired than usual and my stomach was upset. I cant say for sure if this was a direct side effect of the Botox or just my body being annoying like usual. It has been 5 days since my Botox and I feel amazing. I look at my forehead and it looks so smooth and beautiful!!! In addition to the wrinkle, I also had a bit of a dent in my forehead between my brows and I swear that has lessened as well. I finally feel 27 and youthful again, as opposed to the worn out, tired looking person I was feeling like. Because I only had 15 units, I can still kind of move my facial muscles between my brows which I kind of like. I like to be able to have some expression. I am totally hooked and I cant say enough about what Botox has done for my confidence!!
