I haven't had it done before but did a bit of research on the net and dr Temple has all the right registrations & positive reviews (although I don't generally trust internet reviews as they're easily fabricated). I was encouraged by the fact that he's booked up though but I want it soon so that I look more relaxed and youthful for my hols.
If you go to dr Temple, please post let us the verdict!
I ended up going to Love your skin in newark, a nurse led practice. Had Botox on my awful crows feet and frown lines between the brows. The jury's still out-it'll take 10 days until the paralysis kicks in fully How did you get in Isobella?
I think nasty reactions are rare and it is a temporary treatment. I did lots of research but was a bit gung in the end although the Internet reviews were reassuringly positive.
She was very knowledgeable. I felt no pressure (I would have walked out if she'd tried to sell other/further treatments). She was also realistic, saying that the lines under my eyes (tear troughs) would not and could not be helped by injectable treatments.
It didn't hurt either and felt surprisingly 'normal'. I paid £190 for the 2 areas. I go back in 2 weeks for a check up and if a top up is needed it's included in the price.
Not trying to promote it to you Isobella, it's a very personal decision and this was my experience.
