1o weeks ago I had Botox injected between my brow and into my crows feet area. I had it done once before between the brow area and the results were wonderful. I'm 35 and I don't even know why I had this procedure done in my crows feet area because I didn't even have crows feet. I thought that I would delay getting wrinkles.
My results were horrible - 3 days later I noticed that my cheeks looked like a chipmunk and I suddenly had wrinkles under my eyes that were NOT there before because of the weird way my cheeks were bunching under my eyes. To make matters worse, I decided to change my face cleanser because I thought that the wrinkles under my eyes might improve if I use a product that is more nourishing (I've always had a flawless, smooth skin). I had a bad reaction to this new product and developed a rash on my face. It has now been 6 weeks since I tried this new skin care product and I still have a rash :(
I am absolutely devastated because I look terrible from the Botox and this rash and I've hardly left my house in 10 weeks. My work has suffered and my children and husband are really being affected by all this. I'm living like a hermit - too complexed to face people. Christmas and holidays are almost here and I don't want to put my nose out my front door. I'm so scared that the Botox has permanently affected my face and that the cleanser has ruined my skin. I've never been so depressed in my entire life. This has been the most traumatic experience I have ever endured and the worst 10 weeks of my life. I don't know if I can handle it for much longer. I was always attractive and proud of my looks and I now feel the complete opposite.
I have read about the amazing effects of facial muscle exercises and I have bought a book and DVD and started doing the exercises, but the muscles that were botoxed are still completely paralysed and I will only be able to do some of the exercises properly once the mobility returns.
Has anyone completely recovered and returned back to normal after having a bad Botox experience and if so, how long did it take? I will NEVER inject my face with this poison EVER again.
