What are your thoughts on getting botox? Has anyone hear ever had this done?
I’m 28 and although I don’t have wrinkles, I have fine lines at the corner of my eyes and also a little one on each side of my mouth from smiling. I’m thinkin about getting botox done once about 3 months before the wedding.
Does anyone have experience with this? It’s hard to really see before and after pictures online of people who have had it done because those people are much older with deep wrinkles and they appear to all be scowling to make their wrinkles appear even deeper in the picture.
Also, has anyone done a series of microdermabrasians? This may solve my problem, but I’m not sure how the results are.

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

Thanks Neli! I’m in Los Angeles though! I would love to hear how it goes for you though if you are getting married and having it done relatively soon too.

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).

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!
