Botox and I Are BFFs. Lansdale, PA

I am very fair-skinned and come from a long line...

I am very fair-skinned and come from a long line of poorly-aging ancestors. We all look to be about 10 years older than we actually are... We wrinkle-up like raisins starting in our 20s!

Anyway, I had serious "11s" which are the "angry lines" between the brows. I also had deep, deep wrinkles across my forehead - you know, the kind you see when you raise your eyebrows? ...Except mine stayed even with my eyebrows lowered >:( When I smile, the crow's feet appear - they're not really too bad though. Not yet.

I also had horrible laugh lines next to my lips. I know that's sort of a nice thing. It shows that a person has smiled and laughed a lot in their life, but I didn't like them!!

I decided to get botox. Why not see what it could do for me? So, I did it! It was honestly not painful. Just a little pinch - and that was really only in the 'crow's feet' area. Otherwise it was barely noticeable. SO - if you're worried about pain, you won't find it here.

I learned that the laugh lines were to be taken care of by dermal fillers - not botox, as botox would paralyze the muscles around the mouth and, well, imagine how that could look!

So I went with just the forehead - "11s", lines across and crow's feet.

They said it would take up to a week to notice anything. I started to notice a strange sensation the next day! It felt kind of neat. It's very hard to describe, but it wasn't unpleasant. Over the next few days it became more noticeable and suddenly I realized I could no longer make 'the angry face' even if I tried!

So, I have been getting botox regularly for about 2.5 years and I have to say that my skin looks SO much younger - even though I am now older! The wrinkles just aren't there at all, they went away!

Another unexpected benefit? I get nasty headaches. I noticed that since I got the Botox, I often cannot feel the headaches as intensely. I can tell they're happening, but I don't really feel the pain as much. So, that's pretty awesome!

Sidenote: I did get the dermal fillers for the laugh lines and, wow, that worked like a charm too and that has lasted for a very long time (year and a half or so). I'm so happy with the results.

Overall, I am thrilled with the results of the Botox treatments!! Other than the expense, of course. As its VERY pricey... and you have to get it redone every 3 months to maintain. So, yikes. But, if you're motivated enough, you'll make it happen.

(I will add some before and after photos shortly - it's pretty impressive!)

I went to Young Medical Spa in Lansdale, PA and have continued going there since I started. I do have other points of comparison, as I have tried it a few other places and they weren't nearly as good!! I either ended up with bruises, TOO MUCH botox where it was obvious and a little freaky, just an overall hurry up and get out sort of technique, a doctor who is just trying to push every other procedure in the book on me... They don't ever do any of those things at Young Medical Spa. I absolutely love the staff too. They're all so sweet and very accommodating - as I've run very late a few times and they've always managed to squeeze me in without any issues. They're all happy and polite - it's just a pleasant experience. I never have to wait! They always take me right in when I arrive. Although if I did have to, they have a very nice waiting room. The doctor is very pleasant and happy to answer any questions you might have and takes his time with you to make sure everything is done carefully, with precision - and that you're happy before he even leaves the room. If you ever have concerns - they take care of them immediately. The prices are reasonable for this area as well. They're not the least expensive, but they're also not the most expensive. They offer many types of procedures too (lipo, facelifts, tummy tucks, etc.) - I don't know how those go, as I've never tried any, but I've only ever heard positive things from other patients as well. I am happy I found them! I recommend them to anyone considering getting any of these procedures done.
