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

Hi it would be costed at 2 areas because when treating the forehead the area between the eye brows needs to be treated. If not then as mentioned before the forehead can become heavy. Would be £250. Tried to pm you but it wouldn't work

Hi topsi, would it be ok to ask what it would cost to get my forehead lines done? I don't have 11's, just a forehead like a relief map of the Andes grin

I am in Buckinghamshire. Registered nurse prescriber with 8 years experience.

So it's good for bags/wrinkles there and slightly droopy lids? That's the main bit for me.

Yes please to recommendation in Cheshire or Manchester!

Forehead right above the eyebrows, between eyebrows, and next to and a bit under the eyes for crow's feet wrinkles. It is all around the eyes. You wouldn't use it on the lower face. Unless you don't want to smile or talk comprehensible for the next few months, of course smile

I thought it was mainly used in the forehead region and that the direct eye area was avoided as it could look a bit odd.

Admittedly it's not my area of expertise.

OP - For 11s, you would be injected between the eyebrows.

I would say you are a bit young, though.

squoosh - Botox is pretty much only ever used around the eyes.

Love it have it every 7-8 months. I have found that it means I can wear no make up in the day bar mascara and inthink that is what looks young and fresh. Nothing can touch it tbh

LadyHarrietdeSpook Fri 20-Sep-13 23:02:00

Oh poo...

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

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

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

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

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

Another one wanting an Oxfordshire recommendation please!

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

Any good recommendations Newcastle/ Cumbria area?

Good practitioner in London please?

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

TheArcticFunky - I will pm you.

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

Elbombero, I am interested. Please recommend.

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

Anyone know a good practitioner in Herts?

ElBombero Fri 20-Sep-13 07:04:36

For anyone in north west / manchester know a couple of practitioners who I can highly recommend

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

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.

Scarletohello Thu 19-Sep-13 23:59:26

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..?

Monadami Thu 19-Sep-13 20:31:41

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.

Justconfused Thu 19-Sep-13 19:38:58

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.
