I am considering having some form of non-surgical treatment for frown lines/11s. Is Botox the best bet? I look cross and old at the moment sad

I had mine done, I have looked annoyed with the world since I was a teen, and even when laughing looked like I was still angry. Had it done for my wedding day and within a week people were commenting asking what facials I had been having in the run up to the day saying how well I looked.
I am pg at the moment but as soon as I have ds I will be getting it topped up.

I was thinking about this for my wedding too.

I have a bum crack in the middle of my eyebrows and I hate it.

Interested in seeing replies smile

How much did it cost? My SIL tells me I've developed a bitchy resting face... It's actually getting me down a bit, and although I always swore I would accept my face and body as it is, as I get older I am less certain!

I paid about £200 for mine it sorted my 11's and my bitchy resting face was sorted, my eyebrow arches looked amazing, I had it done after my sister said I would be the only bride who would give the groom a bitch stare as he gave a speech about how lovely I was.....she was right and it didn't happen thanks to botox grin

Sounds great! How long after injections did it take to settle? Have lots of parties before christmas and would love to look a bit more serene.

It takes about 2-3 weeks to take full effect.Best money I ever spent.

Mine started to take effect within 5 days and I had a top up after 2 weeks, my mum had her done and it took the full 2 weeks to start to take effect.

Right, have drunkenly booked a consultation...

Do it, no danger of 'Botox face' and it works a treat. If they are deep it won't erase completely but will make a massive difference. I was hesitant about going down the injectables route but thought my 11s were so ageing decided to give it a go last year and so happy with the results. It hasn't led to doing more either which was another fear.

How often are you topping up?

maradesbois Sat 15-Nov-14 21:44:59

Tbh I only go every 6 months which seems to surprise them so others must do it more often. It's wearing off now, has probably been about 5 months so will go back to get done again before Christmas. Personally I don't think any more than 3 times per year would be necessary.

I heartily endorse botox for the 11s. I also get a bit on my crow's feet. The crow's feet bit isn't as dramatic in results, but it does help.

I have just had my third round since the early spring. I gather it lasts longer after you've done it a couple of times. It did seem to wear off more slowly to the second time.

Where do you all get it done?
Mine look more like )I - not even symmetrical!

marking place

Ive had it done at 3 different sk:n clinics.

What are 11s?

waitingforgodot Sun 16-Nov-14 15:10:00

is it sore?

PrivateBenjamin Sun 16-Nov-14 17:08:03

Tess 11's are the lines some people get between their eyebrows as though they're frowning. It's like this picture.

Lovemcgarrett Sun 16-Nov-14 17:12:37

Ooh I'm following. I think due to having a fringe my forehead has been ok but I do have 11s and crows feet

maradesbois Sun 16-Nov-14 17:44:37

I go to a sk:n clinic too where it's done by a doctor who understands facial muscles etc, never assistant or beautician. They tend to err on the side of caution but do a top up for free after 2 weeks if it hasn't taken well enough.

Fabulassie Sun 16-Nov-14 19:17:30

No, it's not really sore. It hurts very little (less than eyebrow threading) as the needle is so tiny. Sometimes it can make a slightly sore tiny bruise at the injection site but it's not a painful experience, overall.
