i’m 26. i’ve been getting botox for 6 years for migraines. it hurts! i don’t wish that pain to anybody, especially for beauty purposes, and especially if you say you don’t have wrinkles. however, if you really want to do it, i would talk to the doctor to ask their opinion if it will work for you.

@Mrs. Louboutin, Microderbrasion works great!!!

I’m actually thinking about getting Juvederm a few weeks before my wedding. I don’t know where you live but if you’re in the NYC, I know a great dermatogolist who does botox and juvederm.

Feel free to PM me for the information

My derm gave me a prescription for Tazorac to treat fine lines around my eyes from sun damage (and from smoking in college…shhhhh).  I also recently started noticing deep lines that pop up just when I smile, but he said the only thing to do about that would be botox about 2-3 months before the wedding (to paralyze the muscle).  Not so sure I want to start down that road just yet.

I think the general rule is botox for anything above the nose (crows feet by your eyes, forehead) and fillers like juvederm/restylane for anything below (parenthesis around your mouth).

Good luck!

I am actually about to begin my series of micro this Tues. I’m excited I’ve heard great things so I hope that it evens out my skin texture since I’ve had acne.  It’s taken me a while to get there since you want to make sure that you’re no longer breaking out once you begin micro, if not it makes things worse.  So I will keep you posted and let you know how it goes.

I’ve had a series of micro a while back to reduce scaring, and have gotten one off sessions periodically. It’s great, really helps smooth out skin, reduce oiliness and helps your skin glow. I recommend it, but keep in mind you will probably experience some sensitivity for a few days afterwards, and need to keep wearing sunscreen daily! A glycolic peel or two a couple of months before can also help with your fine lines. I think Botox is better for deep lines.

Hope this helps!
