i had my first botox treatment 2 days ago. im 33. i really thought that i researched it well but now im not so sure.
i had my "elevens" done and also my outer upper eyebrows (derms idea). i ve always hated my creases in my forehead. so i finally decided to just do it. mine was so expensive because i have really strong facial muscles and i read a lot and squint way too much when i read.
the day i had it done was okay except that i am really scent sensitive and that stuff stinks, i swear i could taste it for hours. the next day i had a little headache, almost a tension headache, like i was clenching my jaws really hard. then last night i suddenly got really sick to my stomach followed by throwing up 6 times. that freaked me out cause i barely ever get sick.
today i seem okay. i dont know if this had anything to do with the headache relief but i scrunched my face up as hard as i could then relaxed it as much as i could(just once) after that the headache left. i felt like the botox paralized the muscle in the scrunched position and thats why i tried this method. well it worked..yay!!
for now. as for result, one of my lines disappeared already but the other one is so deep that it almost looks like a scar. however that one softened up a lot already too and that is exciting. i cant wait to see my result after 2 weeks. oh and my eyebrows seem to have a lift, i really like it. as for doing it again, not a chance, the sickness was enough for me so far and from what im reading on here, there could be more to come.
i pray nothing else will happen but ill keep yuz updated. oh and getting the actual needle, ive had more pain plucking my eyebrows. that being said, he used numbing cream first...hope this helps:)
Just a quick update as promised....it has been...
