Botox experiences please? Am I too young?

I'm 32. I have generally good skin (except for enlarged pores which I hate) but my number 11s are noticeable. I also feel like my eyes are a bit hooded because my forehead skin has sort of dropped.

I figured that some Botox in the forehead region would lift my eye area a bit and would get rid of the 11s.

Can anyone talk me through having Botox, how much you paid, if you thought it was good and what age you had it at? TIA grin

How do you find a reputable/good practitioner to do it? Am nervous of looking ridiculous!

I've been looking into this. At 37 I have all 3 problem areas, I've not heard of baby Botox though.

Baby Botox is something I've never heard of as a practitioner but if you tell them what you want ie a natural look with movement they will adapt treatment...

Frantically I think generally a good pratituoner is found through word if mouth, if noone has been recommended though I would advise you go to a proper practice / private hospital (think Spire / Harley med / transform) you know then they are proper nurses with the right qualifications, insurance and back up if anything goes wrong. Whereabouts are you?

I'm in wiltshire... Near Bath. Any recommendations?

Too far from my area to recommend anyway, but Spire hospitals/transform/Harley med are nationwide I recommend those instead of subbed shops/back street beauty salons

I would say DO NOT go to a place like Harley Medical ( just google how they treated their PIP breast implant patients !) .. You need to go to someone who ideally is a qualified doctor .. At least as their background, s/he may now have decided to focus on the aesthetic side.

Elbombero. Can I ask, did you have to become a Registered Nurse before practicing as an Aesethic nurse? This is something I'm really interested in and considering studying Nursing just so I can get a job working in a clinic and doing injectables.

Please is there any chance people who have had successful Botox would be willing to share details of their practitioners? I would love to have it done but am scared of it going wrong, looking plastic/ fake etc! Anyone up for sharing..?

I have it done by a dentist. It is £235 for 3 areas. I have 11s, forehead and crow's feet.

Mine lasts the best part of a year (am 43) and apart from the fresh appearance it gives me, it completely eliminates any headaches.

People constantly ask me now what I use on my face, but no-one has guessed it is Botox.

ElBombero Fri 20-Sep-13 07:03:19

Monadami, yes I am a registered nurse firstly. Went into this much later.

As for not wanting to go to a larger organisation I know what your saying about the PIP , just thought for the first timer it's the safest option. A doctor can go on a days course to do the treatments, I wouldn't want that!
Experience n recommendations is what you want ideally which is why I thought bigger organisation

TheArticFunky Fri 20-Sep-13 20:08:30

Anyone know a good practitioner in Herts?

busyboysmum Fri 20-Sep-13 20:33:00

Elbombero, I am interested. Please recommend.

ThePuffyShirt Fri 20-Sep-13 20:53:49

DizzyDalek Fri 20-Sep-13 21:32:47

MsBouvier Fri 20-Sep-13 22:37:24

Another one wanting an Oxfordshire recommendation please!

LadyHarrietdeSpook Fri 20-Sep-13 22:54:43

I just want my eyes done. Botox any good for that?

squoosh Fri 20-Sep-13 22:58:40

I don't think they recommend botox being injected around the eye area.
