Botox and factor 50

I have been considering botox for some time and today went for an informal chat at a clinic.

Tomorrow I am booked in to see the consultant and if I am happy with what he offers then I can have the botox or go away to think some more.

I'll probably have it done.

I have a horizontal deep line that creams and peels have not eliminated. The crease is between my eyes. Eyessential is great for a temporary fix but I want the line gone permanently.

I was pleased when the woman said I don't need botox anywhere else. I have looked after my skin and face but this one line stands out.

I use moisturiser with spf15 and bb beblesh with spf25 but the woman said I should buy a separate factor 50 sunsceen and use it every day.

I have bought a factor 50 sun lotion today and will start using it.

Anyone else have good results with using factor 50? The woman said by using it, my skin will improve. I bought the factor 50 independently of the clinic.

I don't think you will find much difference between spf40 and 50.

I have used spf25 mainly for 20 years and have unlined skin at 55.

Thank you amelia. I did wonder about its effectiveness. I will give it a go.

I am not telling anyone I am having botox and will see if anyone notices if I look 'well'.

I had it done. All went well. No bruising or muzzy feeling. Nice relaxing experience and pain very mild.

Go back in two weeks to see if top up needed.
