Tell me it's going to be ok...

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:40:29

Anyone??

Ollivander84 Fri 23-Feb-18 10:41:05

I had my first lot about 2 weeks ago! Well, azzalure but same difference
It was fine, and I love it

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:42:06

Has it made a big difference?

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:42:42

Where did you have it done? (Areas of face, not country!)

Ollivander84 Fri 23-Feb-18 10:42:53

Oh yes. Pics before and now

Ollivander84 Fri 23-Feb-18 10:43:18

Horizontal forehead lines and in between eyebrows so two areas

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:45:38

That does look good! I'm going for the same two areas plus crows' feet - but if your age is what your user name suggests I've got ten years on you...

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:46:22

You have brilliant eyebrows too!

Ollivander84 Fri 23-Feb-18 10:47:36

Yeah I'm 34 in a few months. Eyebrows are micropigmentation so tattooed on

I had my first Botox treatment at start of this week. Had it on my forehead. I was initially only going to have a chat about it, but the Dr was lovely and made me feel it wasn't a big thing to have it done. It wasn't very painful, over very quickly. It bled a tiny amount but stopped quickly. I didn't bruise. It felt odd for the evening but now, 3 days on, it has settled am I'm really pleased with the result and thinking where else I could have it! Good luck!

I had it for crease between eyes (permanently annoyed look) and it was great. I also had filler to fill the crease... That felt funny (lumpy) until it settled down.

Am going back next week for an overdue top up, probably won't have the filler this time though.

Thanks for replies!

I don't want to look younger - just less knackered. I don't sleep that well and it's really started to show on my face.

I'm aiming for fresh, not frozen.

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 10:58:09

Oh, and I'm telling no-one in real life...

Aprilshowerswontbelong Fri 23-Feb-18 10:59:48

Looking for somewhere in the NE if anyone has any recommendations?

UndomesticHousewife Fri 23-Feb-18 11:00:56

I’ve got an appointment for Botox in March, a consultation and treatment if I want to go ahead.
I just want one area done the line in my eyebrows on the top bit of my nose I look so cross all the time. I think I might need a filler there too for the line.
I’m s bit scared but it’s an actual doctor that does the clinic once a month so hopefully he won’t paralyse my face!!

TossDaily Fri 23-Feb-18 11:23:25

Argh don't say the 'P' word!

I've got my Bell's palsy excuse all lined up just in case wink

Hammy12345 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:25:20

I didn't tell anyone. My husband thought I was going to the supermarket. Fortunately didn't end up with a droopy eye. Not sure how I would have explained that to him.

Worieddd Fri 23-Feb-18 12:28:20

Any recommendations in the north west?
Also how much are you all paying? I’ve got one forehead line that is really bugging me

Ollivander84 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:33:48

I went to Kita Aesthetics in Burnley, paid £99 for two areas of azzalure

pontiouspilates Fri 23-Feb-18 12:34:00

I'm almost 50 and have an annoying line between my eyebrows (like others, I feel I always look cross!) Have I left it too late for Botox? I feel like I should have had it 15 years ago?

Hammy12345 Fri 23-Feb-18 12:39:07

Mine was two small lines between eye brows so looked permanently angry. A Dr did it and it was £90. She had some left in the vial so also did another line higher on my forehead.

Worieddd Fri 23-Feb-18 13:07:48

Brilliant Burnley isn’t too far at all.

Off to google azzalure....

I had my first botox last summer and am a total convert. I get my crow's feet done - I had some in my forehead as well but didn't get that topped up last time. It's very natural and just softens the lines so I look more awake and less haggard

bananafish81 Fri 23-Feb-18 13:29:20

I'm 36 BTW. I went to a consultant dermatologist who specialises in cosmetic dermatology. I wouldn't ever go to a beautician, and personally wouldn't go to a nurse or dentist either - I'd opt for a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
