Skin Care Review: Botox

by anna


simple, lasting and relatively painless

none that I can think of

I've been getting botox on and off for around two years now, and am very pleased with the results.

I have forehead wrinkles, more like expression lines really as I DO have a very expressive face and use my eyebrows to punctuate my sentences. ;) My eyebrows are also sliightly unever, with the right being marginally lower than the left. No one else would really notice but imo, I appear more tired on that side. Anyway, botox minimises my ability to raise my eyebrows but it doesn't immoblise them, thank goodness, so the effect is very natural. My wrinkles disappear, and there is definitely a lifting effect. By using slightly more on the right side, my eyebrows are more even. I'd say I get a good five months out of every procedure.

I had one bad experience that totally immobilised my eyebrows. Not only did it look unnatural, it was uncomfortable and my forehead felt heavy for weeks. Most doctors offer a 'top up' after a week or two, so start with less and go back if you need to. I mean, you can always add more botox if the effect isn't adequate, but you can't take it away if the effect you get is too dramatic.

Find a good doctor who knows his/her botox.
