I've been to see someone for a consultation today and I'd just like some views from anyone who either administers Botox, or experienced users.
The guy I went to see is a dentist and max fax doctor and really seems to know his stuff. That said I was expecting only to have my forehead done (one area)
He suggested that the best result for me, in terms of my slightly droopy left upper lid, and my forehead lines, would be to inject two areas. Firstly just to the sides of the eyes (crows feet area) and then also the forehead.
He said that if we just did the forehead, the relaxation of the forehead muscles might make droopy lids worse rather than better.
In after a less tired, but not overdone look.
I said I'd get back to them when I've had time to think it through....

Hmm I'm sure all I can say is when I've had it done on my forehead it does lift my eyebrows slightly I suppose it depends how bad they. When you need your forehead lines doing its always classed as two area because you have to have in between your eyes done to support it. This always annoys me as I don't have elevens but I still have to have it there and am charged for it!!

I guess that's what I was wondering. Is he saying it to charge me for two areas, or is it genuinely good expert advice 🤔

No for your forehead you are charged for 2 areas that's standard but I've never heard of it having to do with the crows feet area its in between the eyes. I've had crows feet done as well but that's classed as another area so it would be 3 areas. How did you find him has anyone you know been to him? I always think that's the best way.

I just went to the private dental surgery where I usually go because they do Botox too. I don't know anyone to ask locally. Are there any forums where someone might have a suggestion for a good practitioner in my area.

I've had Botox a few times. That sounds like good advice to me and makes sense.

No advice but I had a consultation last week, I only wanted the very top of my forehead done but was advised I'd have to have between my eyes done too (which has no lines or wrinkles at all). I thought it was a ploy to get me to pay for 2 areas so it's good to hear that actually it's the norm, thanks Buttwing.

I'm back in Tuesday for a top up of my lip filler so think I might go ahead with the Botox then.

I've had that done! Its amazing! Because you get a brow lift effect, as well as doing away with 11s and cries feet etc. So your eyes look wider, and you won't end up looking like a low browed ape a la VB.

Yes, when I had it I just wanted forehead but the doc recommended both those areas and it did work well. Must go again, actually!

Fab, thanks ladies. This is encouraging. It's not that I didn't trust the clinician per-se, just that he suggested something I hadn't expected.
Anyone else?.....

Yes I'm an aesthetician, his advice is correct. The frontalis is the elevator, if you knock that out it needs support. You'll love it x

I think that's right otherwise you would look unbalanced ?

Sorry to hijack the thread but may I ask (roughly), how much this costs? I'm considering Botox, I have the 11's which make me look like I have a permanent scowl.

I've been told £250 for two areas
