I finally stumped up for Bottox and wow what a difference!

I don't consider myself to be a big beauty addict but 2 weeks ago I had Bottox and its made a subtle but significant difference. I've noticed people smiling back at me more and I realise that it must be because I don't look perpetually worried. No one in real life has figured out what I've done so I had to come onto to MN to share my news!

But did it hurt?

noddyholder Wed 21-Nov-12 17:18:09

No just a 'crunch' grin

Seriously thinking about getting this done (but without telling anyone in RL), I have really deep frown lines and look like a miserable hag.

How long did it take and how much did it cost?

RavenVonChaos Wed 21-Nov-12 17:26:08

Even tho I a dead agajnst it and a radical feminist.....

I want it too! Miserable old hag reporting for duty winkwink

XBenedict Wed 21-Nov-12 17:28:06

I have frown lines too and creases in my cheeks by the side of my nose - you know what I mean? Getting old sad

Not sure about the crunching though ewww!

XBenedict Wed 21-Nov-12 17:28:39

I would also be interested in how much it cost.

Bottox is the commonly used name for bum-botox around here. Makes it perky again...

I can't decide if the OP has had that or has made a spelling mistake...

I don't think I could be needled in the face. Or the bum, but especially the face. My MIL had it, everyone told her it didn't hurt. I could hear her shout outside the room. Ouch.

The wind changed and now I look permanently cross. I' m saving for botox

I agree it is really impressive, make up goes on smoother, you look fresher. ALTHOUGH, it depends on the practitioner, I went to one at a private hospital and she was crap. I said to her "I havent had any comments about looking good/better" and she brushed these off!

Then I found my current woman and not only is she cheaper, but better qualified and with better results.

It also makes you hugely cynical about all face creams as you KNOW what the answer is! I think it has done more for me as I have just hit 40 than anything else. I LOVE IT

i have two areas - above brows and crows feet. It is just perfect. Mine took aged to take effect, though, over a week.

People won't visit you if you spam the boards you moron.

noddyholder Wed 21-Nov-12 19:16:22

Eliminates all the creams etc and you don't have to wear make up in teh day as much. I do just above brows nothing else I am 47 and it is my favourite thing esp after about a month when it looks its best.

XBenedict Wed 21-Nov-12 19:18:11

I am tempted noddy

Toughasoldboots Wed 21-Nov-12 19:20:08

Which lines did you have done? I am poised with my credit card but still can't bring myself to do it.

noddyholder Wed 21-Nov-12 19:21:44

gwan gwan gwan

MiniMousse Wed 21-Nov-12 19:25:17

interesting - I'[m thinking about botox too as a mini scale version of the grand canyon appears to be forming between my eyebrows... how much does it cost and can you recommend anywhere thames valley way?

noddyholder Wed 21-Nov-12 19:25:54

My dp has seen me all dolled up with it but only ever commented one sunday when I went to the market with loose scruffy hair and absolutely no make up and he just looked at me and said You look YOUNG! Mine was done in september and is still fully there hope it lasts over xmas

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Nov-12 19:26:24

You are all bonkers! You are injecting yourselves with Botulism in the name of beauty! Embrace your crows feet!
