Botox Lovin'

If you follow me on Instagram {@skinnymeg31} then you probably already know that I had a bit of, uh, work done.


Yep, I got me a little botox. I've had pretty deep lines on my forehead for years, probably since my early 20's and they have always bothered me. Well I thought since I'm done having babies I might as well give it a go and I have to say I really really really love it. 

Cost: Groupon always has several deals for botox so that was my first stop, I found a reputable place close to work and for $149 I had enough to do one area {my forehead}.

How it went down: I was a little apprehensive honestly, I imagined huge needle being shot in my face. Actually it was surprisingly fast, less than 2 minutes, and it was more like acupuncture than needles. Pop, pop,pop, ok you are good to go, no working out for a few hours.I did it on my lunch break, not even much redness afterwards when I went back to work.

Maintenance: I was told that it depends on your metabolism, some peoples last longer than others, but for my first time I could expect around 3/4 months before I need it done again. I will be doing it again, I think it looks very natural and you really wouldn't notice unless I told you. In fact Oliver JUST called me and asked me if I did it after he was stalking my IG page and he see's my face everyday and never noticed!

Right now I have absolutely no plans to do anywhere else on my face, actually the lady who did it for me kinda scared me into not doing too much, I honestly could not tell you how old she was and not in a good way.  I think it can be like back in the day when I tanned, you tan and tan everyday and still don't feel like you are dark enough, but you are you just can't see it. Yuck. So if I start lookin' all crazy my friends better have a botox intervention!

  2. Do you know about Nerium? It is botox in a bottle! It will definitely help to maintain that wrinkleless forehead (and other areas as well). I would love to share more info. with you if you are interested. www.rhooper.nerium.com

  5. It looks great! I use to work in a cosmetic clinic and it is never to early to start preventative measures! You look awesome. If you want to try another area - try the upper lip. 5 units ... 2 on either side and 1 in the peak. Subtle but gives you a little more volume. =)

  8. It looks amazing! I don't know why I thought it lasted way longer. I thought it was like years not just 3 months. I hate my forehead lines!
