Hello, My name is Heather and I’ve had Botox injections for a number of years, with my first injections being done in my mid-twenties. My friend was training to be a nurse injector and I let her practice on me. I thought it was great and then didn’t have any injections for a while. I later noticed some deep frown lines forming on my forehead and wanted to get rid of them because I had makeup sticking to them.
I wouldn’t say Botox is addictive or necessarily a vanity thing. I just want to grow old gracefully and I do feel if you can have Botox and maybe some fillers, then perhaps I might never need to have any invasive surgery. I want to avoid having surgical lifts and things of that nature because I think that's when people start looking funny.
I do not get any bruising whatsoever when I have my injections done. The needle is so small, I often have to ask my injector if the procedure was even performed.
Botox is a pretty incredible drug.
