I thought i'd write a review as iv been a member on this site for a few yrs now.
I had Botox for the very first time in july 2011. I dont know the correct medical terms for each individual muscle injected, so will tell you the areas instead. They were my forehead, inbetween my brows, and bunny lines and crows feet. BIG MISTAKE! 3 days after the injections I noticed a triangular dent between my brows, one on either side of my nose, and on the outter corners of my eyes also. To be honest, I didnt really take much notice because as it was the first time id had Botox -I actually thought this was how it was meant to be (bit stupid eh!?) Anyway, As the days went on, my face became more paralised. I could not raise my eyebrows, (actually had to lift them with my fingers to apply mascara! and that went on for a good 6 months.)
I will tell you this now, with my hand on my heart, the botox is still in my face 21 months later! I am near the two yr mark, and my face is absolutely nowhere near better. I will list a few of the abnormalities/deformities that botox has done to my face..
Hollow/caved in temples.
sunken in/hollow eyes
severe muscle atrophy and skin laxity
I have loose skin all over my face! The skin bunches up under the eyes when I smile with horrible horizontal lines that extend down the sides of my once filled out plump cheeks.
My face is not my face :(. Botox has robbed me of my confidence..
Iv been doing carolyns facial exercises for a good 3 months, and I havent noticed a slight bit of difference BUT that doesnt mean I wont see any changes. Im hopefull that my face will return back to how it was, I have to be.
Please anyone thats considering pumpin this into their face, dont! Its a hit and miss situation, and dont EVER think it will not happen to you because you have to be a pretty strong individual to live with the possible shitty outcome if it all goes wrong (believe me, im living proof.)
