Male, 29 YO and Great Botox Experience With Dr. Christine Prendergast
Botulinum toxin A
As a 29 year old male, I was a bit hesitant to get Botox initially. None of my friends had done it and I felt like I didn’t want to be the first one to try it. I didn’t want to get it done and look like a dope when my face suddenly appeared frozen. This was a real fear I had and the wrinkles that were present on my face were not enough to overcome that fear for a long time. Don’t get me wrong — I hated the crow’s feet that formed on my face when I smiled — but it wasn’t enough where I thought about it every day. It really only bothered me when I saw a photo of my side profile. It was not until my sister, who is a few years younger than me, had Botox done and told me she loved it. She basically hinted I was a big baby for not getting and she reminded me that the longer I waited, the deeper my wrinkles would get and the harder it would be for my forehead to smooth out. My sister was right. I wanted to look and feel good about myself. It was time to visit a doctor.
The doctor my sister told me to go see was Dr. Christine Prendergast of Finesse Plastic Surgery in Orange County. My sister raved that she was very gentle while doing the injections. I made an appointment with her and before I knew it, I was in the examination chair being injected! It was painless and Dr. Prendergast was very kind and skilled at doing the injections.
Following my injections, I had no swelling or pain. The only pain I experience was to my wallet. The injections cost $650, but were so worth it. Around 2-3 days after my injections, the skin around my eyes and forehead began to tighten and smooth out. 2-3 weeks later and I no longer had crow’s feet when I smiled.
All in all, I am so happy I decided to get Botox injections. There was zero downtime and the results were exactly what I wanted. I look very natural and no one can tell I had anything done. Thank you Dr. Prendergast!
