Botox for Foreheads

I got botox shots for the area between my eyebrows. They did three shots in that area. After a couple of days it kicked in and the muscle that moves the brows together didn't move when I tried to make them. It lasted a little over three months and slowly wore off. Now I just try to not move my forehead so much when I talk or read. I will do it again if I feel I am overworking the muscles again... READ MORE

Laser Hair Removal on Dark Skin

I did laser hair removal on underarms and knees to ankles. I have medium dark skin. It got rid of some of it but not all of it. After a few years it seemed like some of what was gone was coming back. I suppose I will go back for some more removal appointments. It was worth having less hair for those years. I wonder if anyone else has had come back after several years. READ MORE

For Smooth Skin

I buy microdermabrasion treatments when they are on sale. I will pay up to $60 for it but that is tops. Often, ads will be running special for half that. I like how it gets all the dead skin cells off and makes my skin feel smooth. I don't listen to any claims beyond skin smoothing because it has never make a difference on me for problems like uneven skin tones or dark spots. They hype up the... READ MORE

I Like the Bleaching Trays Better

I have bleached my teeth off and on over the years. I usually use the bleaching trays with opalescense. I tried the zoom teeth whitening but didn't think it was all that much better than the trays for the money. I will just stick with opalescense. I like my dentist and recommend his office, just not the zoom treatments. READ MORE

They Can Change the Lip Colors on Permanent Makeup

I had a permanent makeup eyeliner procedure many years ago. At first it was good but wasn't as dark as I wear it or didn't show through my darker skin well enough so she did it again and that did the trick. I wanted my lips done also but she wouldn't do it. She said all kinds of bad things could happen because I was dark skinned. After a few years I kept pleading with her to do it. We... READ MORE

Lower Lip Pout with Restylane

I have been getting Restylane injections in my lower lip to fill it out better. I have been happy with the look but get tired of having to spend money to redo it all the time. I plan to get a bottom lip permanent implant but just don't know which implant I want. I do know I don't want an injectable permanent filler because everyone I know that has done that eventually got hard lumps in... READ MORE

Keloid Scars After Breast Implants

I had breast implants and love the way they look, but I had a little trouble with keloid scarring afterward. I am full blooded Indian. I have read that dark skinned individuals might have that happen. When I have stayed out of the sun my skin is not that dark, but the least little bit of sun rays tans me real quick. The surgeon first treated the scars with steroid injections. That helped... READ MORE
