I, am 38 years young! Have been having Botox for about 5 years now at approximately 3 monthly intervals.
I have bruised only once and I have only suffered from a droopy eyelid once. This only lasted for a day, so iv been pretty lucky really.
Did I really need it?
Well, in my opinion, yes I did! I remember seeing visible forehead lines from the age of about 16! Now obviously at 16, It was absolutely fine, I looked 16, so a few faint expression lines were not an issue.
As I hit 30 though, these permanently imprinted lines across the whole width of my head had started to make me feel self conscious and I felt I had started to age. I also had, by this time, developed frown lines. These were probably increased by the fact that I have never been good at remembering to wear sunglasses. By the time i hit 33, These lines really did get me down.
I then discovered that a family member, very close to my age, had, had Botox. What a brilliant idea! I initially chose just to have my frown lines frozen. My husband had commented that my forehead lines were a family genetic trait and that they were me! The problem was, I noticed them more once I had my frown lines fixed!
No! They simply had to go! So I re-emerged, fresh-faced, brighter eyed and more confident. I had discovered the power of Botox!
