I was reluctant to try Botox, thinking that I really didn't need it at 26. However, a friend of mine gave it a try and said that it made a huge difference- so I had to try it! I was glad I did!!! My Botox appointment was easy and did not take long at all. The doctor asked me to make "frown" faces to locate the areas that needed the injections. After 5 minutes I was all done. I didn't feel any pain and there was only slight redness around the injection sites. The botox took about 3 days to really take effect and then I noticed how much it changed my forehead - I looked fresh and relaxed and of course could still make facial expressions but without the wrinkles. I'm 100% glad I tried it.

Dr. Vela was excellent! I felt very comfortable with him and I got all my questions answered. He took the time to explain how Botox works and what results I could expect. The office was beautiful and the staff was great! I'm going to be seeing him for my future tummy tuck consultation too!
