Are the lines deep? What about a series of facials or peels? That would “renew” your skin.

Personally, I think 33 sounds a little young to get on the botox-train. Once you start, it’ll be hard to stop (Botox does wear off so you have to keep going back)

I don’t see any lines–I think you’re gorgeous! 

Also, have you done any research on Botox? I’ve heard it has scary side effects.

I honestly don’t think you need it. You’re beautiful! If you start now, you’ll keep going back and soon you’ll look so fake, like Nicole Kidman.

I think ultimately it’s important to do what you want.  Though, it’s also important to really consider the reasons for the desire for botox.  (I only say this because I know people who use plastic surgery esque things to try and feel better physically, when it’s really more things deeper than that that they are trying to address).

Personally, I think you look really lovely, airbrushed photo or not.  And, like Pink said, it will be blah to get hooked to something you keep having to go back for.  (It can get expensive, and you don’t want to end up like those emotionless people who can’t move their face).  And, it is approved by the FDA, though it doesn’t mean it’s wonderful…lots of things that are approved have lots of icky side effects, and it’s important for you to decide if the potential risks are weighed out by the benefits which is something only you can decide for yourself.

In my personal opinion, things like lines in a face, or freckles, or minor “imperfections” (note the quote) are what make people look lovely and interesting, much more so than the plastic surguried faces that look like they have all uniqueness sucked away.  But that is just MY opinion, and ultimately I think you know yousrelf best, and only you can decide what you want to do.  But in my opinion, you don’t need it.

Oh, I sympathize!  My bf said he would be very upset if I did that but I also want a little botox and maybe a liiiiitttle retsalyn – oh well!  Guess I should be happy that he loves me as I am but I do tell him that if he ever decided to leave me to put a positive spin on it.  Instead of telling me “i am leaving you’ he should tell me ‘you can finally get the botox you wanted’! 😛

Botox is really scary to me. I say injecting yorself with toxin to get rid of lines we can’t see = not worth it. How nice that your husband is so adament about loving you just the way you are!!

Peronsally, I don’t think you need it. I agree that little imperfections make someone more beautiful.

What wrinkles?! You look beautiful!

Did your dermatologist mention RetinA Micro at all? I’m no expert by any means, but my derm said it speeds up cell turnover. I don’t know how well it works for deep-set wrinkles but honestly I can’t tell that you have ANY wrinkles.

Although I don’t think you need it if you are doing something for yoursalf and not for the opinion of other people then you need to talk to him about why you want and make sure that it is absolutely positively what you want…
