@IUrebekah3RT:  I’ve never had botox, however I have had mirodermabrasion done before and if you do it regularly it helps to remove superficial wrinkles and also clears up the skin beautifully.  Just a thought if you want to go the non-surgical route first.  Smile

I have had botox once and dysport once. I loved the botox. The dysport was okay. I had both done in the glabella area, between the eyebrows. I feel like the dysport didn’t last as long as the botox. Dysport is a tiny bit cheaper so the dr talked me into trying it. I will definitely do botox again in the future, eventually when I can justify the expense. I definitely want to get something in the frown line area soon too.

I had it done between my eyebrows and got a slight brow lift with Botox once before the wedding to test it out and loved it. So for the wedding I got the same thing done for my brows, just slightly more units and also done around my mouth so I couldn’t frown. I fell like I naturally just frown and look grumpy all the time and I didn’t want any photos where I looked miserable at my wedding, especially since my photo does a lot of candid photos. 

I was very, very happy with the results. It wasn’t anything extreme and people only noticed when I told them. I think I just looked more refreshed and less grumpy. Ill post a photo in a bit…need to switch to a laptop

I’d love to try it if I could afford it… I have some really quite deep and pronounced lines on my forehead which I’ve had for years and which haven’t responded at all to non-surgical treatments. But how much are we talking here?

I LOVE botox.  I’m an older Bee and it’s become part of my lifestyle, like getting my high lights and low lights done.

The skill of the injector is crucial to a good outcome, tho.

I have never done Botox but from what I understand, it will NOT help with crows feet around the eyes, you would need a filler like Restylane for that. Or you could try the deeper microdermabraisions but they are not supposed to do too much either and you need about 6. Or you could try a laser therapy, but some of those are pretty invasive, you need 3 days off work to recover, and they may not help with those fine lines either.

Botox only helps with deep lines, like in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the mouth.

I’m also 29 and have done my forehead a few times. I highly recommend getting it done about 4-5 months prior to your wedding so you can see how it looks/feels. Botox typically lasts about 3 months so if you don’t like it, it’ll have time to wear off. If you do like it, this will give you I’ve to have it redone prior to the big day!

 

ETA: PP ^^ is right. I’m pretty sure you can’t do it around the eyes. But, I would suggest you go for a consultation and let them know what you’re goals are so they can give you the appropriate plan.

@gonatgo:  I didn’t know you could get it around your mouth to prevent frowning. I would love to see pics. Do you feel like your smile changed at all with the Botox? Where did they put the injections?

@mstellah:  it didn’t affect my smile at all, it still looked the same. When my face is relaxed or my mouth is closeI, the coroners of my lips just naturally turn down a bit so that’s what I wanted to prevent. If you drew a straight line from the coroner of you lip down about half way to your jaw, that’s where the Botox was injected for me. I think I got 5 units on each side and noticed a change pretty quickly. Because my lips sat more straight (if that makes sense) I think my lips looked slightly fuller. I’ll post some photos tomorrow to show you.
