44yo First-time "Free" Botox - Pasadena, CA

I'm an RS vet migrating over from the MM site - no prep here other than reading some scary "not worth it" botox stories. Geez, talk about making a simple procedure into a nightmare-ish decision! I've briefly read about the headaches, paralysis, facial dents, ptosis, asymmetry, cruella brows,... READ MORE

Good luck to you! Don't stress, you'll be fine... enjoy these next couple days. Drink TONS of water, especially the night before surgery, and just get all your stuff ready to go. Deep breaths. :) READ COMMENT

Yay! You're ALIVE!! :D Congrats to coming out on the other side... Rest a couple days but try to wiggle around, and yes, the numb butt really does suck and doesn't go away 'til you start moving around more. Try sitting on ice packs. :) READ COMMENT

Good luck with your surgery!! How exciting for you! I'm an old vet now but I can still remember the anticipation. Just a note - they may have you take out any pins in your hair (if you use any) before surgery. I had bobby pins in my... READ COMMENT

I've been on a cleanse - eating healthier, smaller meals, less junk, less iced coffees, more water since summer started... Working on my tan and am getting to near-Hawaiian shade with 3 different bikini tan lines! lol... Ah, the... READ COMMENT

Arnica and Bromelain. I preferred the Arnica "pellets" - tiny white powdery tablets on amazon. Good for aches and pains and they taste good too. Arnica gel was good for rubbing into the bruising - feels cool and minty. Not sure if... READ COMMENT
