I had botox 5 days ago, and I really don't know why I decided to do it. I am 50 years old but everybody tells me that I look 10 years younger. I have a smooth line on my forehead, but I do have some lines between my eyes, and of course some crows feet. After researching about botox, reading about its side effects, asking friends about it, (everybody told me positive things), I decided that it wouldn't do me any harm; on the other hand, I thought that I would look much better. Unfortunately, I didn't read these reviews before; had I read them, maybe, I would have never done this.
Anyway, the shots were not as painful as I thought, I could say that they were painless. The next day I started to feel my forehead as heavy as a rock, have headaches, but the worst of all is that I feel so dizzy, with a blurry sight, that I have stopped to go to the gym this week because I do not feel at my best.
I hope that this effect can be temporary and next week I can feel normal again. I am sure that this is not anxiety or something like that. I am just telling you about my experience, hoping to share with others what the doctors won't share with you. I know that each person is different. A friend of mine that also had botox the same day that I did, is not experiencing nothing like that. She is only concerned about her inability to smile naturally.
One more thing that I have to add, I look much better without botox, as other women posted, some of my lines have gone, but new have appeared, and the bags under my eyes (that I normally have) are more prominent. I only have to wait, let the time pass, be patient, and hope to be OK to travel soon. My wrinkles will be really welcomed. Good luck if you decide, after reading my experience, to enter in the world of botox. If you have any comments that can comfort me, I would appreciate them.
