My Botox Experience

Admittedly, I have been obsessed with botox for a few years now. I was always self-conscious of my forehead area and crows feet. I would always Photoshop those two areas before posting any pictures. When I went to Dr. Kaplan for my lips I mentioned to him I was self-conscious about it and when he said “we can fix that” I was so happy!!!!! I thought it would hurt but was so relieved that it didn’t hurt at all!!!! I went two times so far and will most definitely be coming back!

When I told people that I had wanted to try botox, I would get “but you’re too young, you don’t need it”! What are they talking about! I just ignored them. Although I am young (24 to be exact). I frown a lot subconsciously and I have a permanent frown line that no amount of wrinkle creams will fix. I would advise starting Botox before the lines become permanent! Prevention is key. Once a line becomes permanent, the only option is to fill it with a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm or Belotero and that is why I recommend botox sooner rather than later!

Another benefit to Botox which I hadn’t realized before my experience is that Botox injections will give you a brow lift. As Dr. Kaplan explained to me, by injecting the muscles that depress your eyebrows — the ones between the eyebrows — you are, in effect, knocking out those muscles that pull the eyebrows down. The result is a lifted eyebrow which results in a refreshed and rejuvenated look.

Lets be real Hollywood has been doing this forever it’s now become the norm, you get your teeth cleaned every 6 months and now we get botox every 3-4 months. So if you ever thought about trying it, now is the time and Dr. Kaplan is the best doctor to trust your face to!

As attitudes towards beauty continue to shift and evolve, the skincare regime of women and men may never be totally free from scrutiny. What one might consider a normal part of looking presentable in society, another sees as “self-centered grooming”. Botox is a tried and tested path to younger-looking skin and a happier expression that need not imply a deep-seated sense of insecurity or obsession with outward appearances. The desire to look and feel your best is part of being human, and the way you go about that is your choice and your choice alone.

After only one treatment, my forehead has smoothed out beautifully and my eyes have opened due to the brow lift effect of Botox. See before and after photos below.

I will be a lifetime user of the miracle that is botox!
