I felt like sharing my Botox experience and included photos to help others considering the same treatment. I have not found many high quality Botox reviews online and thought those considering it would appreciate a high quality review and so here I am. Here's what you need to know about the treatment.

Why I got Botox:

I had eleven lines between my eyebrows and some fine lines on my forehead. I also started to notice what appeared to be crows feet forming and I saw that as a sign that I was getting really old. I'm a big believer in skin care and doing whatever you can to maintain your appearance.

Who I went to:

I went to a plastic surgeon for my Botox but the injections were done by a nurse injector. She was great! After my first time getting injections, I now only see the nurse injector.

What Was it Like Getting Botox:

The Botox injections do not hurt. You're left with what looks like a little bruise is forming at the injection sites though. I would describe it as a little bubble. But the bubbles go away in about 25 minutes. I didn't have any visible redness after my injections either.

When Do I Get it:

I get Botox around every 4 months and it's around $500 each time I get it. On occasion, I'll wait longer than 4 months but I try not to do that. I don't want my lines to return.

What I think of Botox:

It's amazing. It offers nearly instant results without needing to take time off from work. And it works really well! 

What Recommendations I Have For Others Considering Botox:

1) The first time you get Botox injections it'll be a strange feeling when the Botox first kicks in and paralyzed your facial muscles. It will take a day or two before you get used to it. For subsequent injections, you won't have this issue. I describe this feeling as one you learn to love.

2) Some doctors use Xeomin instead of Botox. I prefer Botox but have had Xeomin and it's pretty comparable.

3) Make sure you go to a highly recommend injector. Even you do unfortunately received bad injections, knows that it's only temporary and you will return to normal when the botulinum toxin in the Botox is expelled from your body.

Any Last Tips About Botox:

I get Botox to enhance my natural beauty but it's also helped me with depression and anxiety. I used to get headaches and head tension which have improved since I started getting Botox.

I could not recommend Botox more. It got rid of fine lines and as stated above has helped me personally.
