- sammnbouNo. No, no, no. Botox leaves dry eyes and can make you drool. It could settle unevenly. Your skin could reject it (because it is poison) and give a terrible reaction. But aside from that, how about we encourage each other's individual worth and natural beauty instead of something that makes women feel they need to change in order to meet society's beauty standards? How does Botox empower women? It's a mask, a false facade. It's also dangerous. Empower women by celebrating natural beauty. :) Society's standards for beauty are completely false.
- sammnbouThe "all my friends are doing it" part is also (with all do respect) very middle school. That's never a reason to do anything. Pressure, peer pressure... just yeah. I'm just surprised at this post.
- korey_stoeckelI'm surprised to see this topic on here. To be honest it freaks me out but I say to each his own.
- vonderbuttenI've had Botox treatments for chronic migraine. I learned immediately that there's a skill in proper Botox injections and not everyone has it. I ended up with slight drooping on one side of my face. It was minimal. Not sure anyone noticed it but me. I've had it again and the injections were placed perfectly. No bad side effects or reactions. I am open to using it elsewhere for cosmetic reasons, though I haven't (yet). Life is short. I can't and won't judge others for doing something that makes them feel more confident. It would be fantastic if everyone could love the skin their in and that's something to strive for, but I see nothing wrong with a little help so long as you consider it to be a safe treatment.
- tabithadumas11That's a big NO. It's toxic and I don't even take Tylenol. I'm planning to age gracefully. The women I know who get it look unnatural. If you're going to do Botox, you have to treat your droopy neck, age spots on your hands, etc. or your age shows. I have neither the time nor money for that kind of maintenance. I don't have anything to prove and I'm proud of my age.
- audbodmamabearWow...this was in interesting view point for me. I am at that age where i am getting more wrinkles, gray hair, forced menopause because of hysterectomy, etc....i have considered it honestly! I figure if there are things out there to help those things...why not? I didn't know this about Botox...so it adds a twist in my thinking.. It is certainly each persons choice either way...that is one of the awrsome things in life...right??❤❤
- reallyitsangelMy friend uses for migraines. I am 45 today and this the first year I am really "feeling" old. So I did start a facial moisturizer routine and got Keranique for my hair loss. There are things everyone does to counteract aging or making ourselves pretty to feel good. So if someone chooses another method I say go for it!!!!
- rstephensartI'm not at a point to consider it myself. I think if you want to do it, OK, just be sure to go to someone who does it really well. I think there are now many alternatives but there are also benefits. I think in a world where we can do thinks to help ourselves feel better and enjoy our appearance, it can be a blessing to have the tools.
- hollywayment@vonderbutten Does the Botox help your migraines? My mom has chronic migraines and I have been telling her to give it a try, just interested to know how well it works.
- vonderbutten@hollywayment The Botox injections were helpful. They require regular maintenance about every three months. There is a new drug-free migraine treatment your Mom could look into called Spring TMS by eNeura. You need a prescription for the device. It's been helpful for me. FDA approved for migraine with aura. But back to Botox, for me it helped enough to be worth the inconvenience for a while.
- firstname.lastname@example.org read the comment above about - Spring TMS. Because I won't remember to tell you in the morning 😘
- llane05@andreaschoenith funny she asks ;)
- mtolivier1Love me a Hamilton reference! 😍
- merrakaiphotographyI got my first Botox treatment in my mid 30's and although very pricey I do love it! I am now 39 and I although I haven't gotten Botox for about a year now, I am planning to Botox regularly for the next 10 years at least. I have been bugging my dentist to get certified to do Botox treatments and he said on my last visit he's going to do it! I have been very open about my Botox and have found that after I start the conversation about it that many of my friends will open up and share that they Botox too. Because so many people are judgmental about people who Botox for cosmetic reasons many are hesitant to share that they do it. Trust me, if you know someone over 40 who has amazing skin, chances are, they Botox. If Botox is done well, others can't tell you have it. I would say that. Botox around the lip area is the place I have heard of things going not super smoothly but I have never had a problem with my forehead and crows feet and brow.
