Review of My Botox Injections in My Forehead and Around My Eyes. $350 in Dallas, Texas.
Botulinum toxin A
I began getting Botox a year ago. I wanted to get rid of the lines on my forehead that appeared when I raised my eyebrows and the wrinkles around my eyes that appeared when I smiled. My botox injections were done all over my forehead, around my crow’s feet and in my frown lines with a tiny needle that only hurt on about a 2 out of 10 scale. I had very little swelling and bruising at the injection sites too. The plastic surgeon, Dr. John Burns in Dallas, TX, used a pen to apply what seemed to be around 30 dots in the treatment areas of my forehead and eye area before my injections. There was no numbing involved because the pain level was very minimal.
It took about a week for me to see results, which were absolutely no wrinkling on my forehead when I moved my brows and very limited wrinkling around my eyes and frown lines. The Botox did make my eyes appear smaller because my eyebrows lowered a bit. Additionally, even though my forehead was wrinkle free, it also became super shiny. Kind of like an ice rink. I have to use way more powder now when I apply makeup. It's a small price to pay for having a wrinkle free forehead and otherwise great results. My results wore off by 4 months and I’ve had repeat sessions several times since. I paid $350 for each treatment and getting botox injections was the best thing I've done for myself in a very long time.
For those interested, I uploaded a video of me before receiving Botox below and here's a video of me 6 days after getting my botox treatment.
Thanks for being one of my all time favorite patients. I love the fact that you are young and taking such good care of your skin, face, and body. The key to looking young is starting early and maintaining what you are blessed with. Keep up your Botox, Skin Care, and Fillers and you'll always stay young and beautiful!!!
