Not the best photo -- taken with my camera phone -- but I took this in early August, and I think I had my last Xeomin injection in May. You can see a little bit of pucker between my eyebrows; that's because the Xeomin was starting to wear off. But you can also see that my forehead is pretty smooth. That's my favorite thing about the injections: it has long-lasting effects on my forehead lines even after the medicine has worn off.

Yikes. I am beautifully blessed with youthful skin (as are ALL of the women in my family...on both sides). I am usually mistaken for 15+ years younger than my age. Melanin is truly a blessing.

yes, i use botox.
botox is your friend
so are fillers.
we have it now, might as well use it.
my friend is a determologist, so pricing for me is very good for me
it takes 10 years off ones age.

I am older than a lot of the guys in my office, yet I look the youngest.
I just tell everyone, because they cant believe my age, that us "Greek men" age well.

its a secret, so dont tell anyone.............................

it lasts around 4-6 months

1. Have you had botox?
2. When did you do it for the first time if you did?
3. Why botox? Why did you start when you did?
I haven't but I want to because I get hollowing under my eyes in the winter..It is there in summer but less noticeable and I am tired of the corrector concealer foundation powder routine..

I would think they would use filler for the hollowing, not Botox. I've looked into it, but I'm not ready to take the plunge yet.

I'd rather get a mini facelift and a neck tightening than do something that has to be redone every few months.

I am doing Botox for 6 years now - keeps my forehead wrinkle free as well as around eyes and between brows. Botox helps from forming static (set-in) wrinkles which are not possible to get rid of with a face lift. My friend did a face lift at 59, she never used Botox, face lift tightened the face and neck, smoothed skin on forehead and yes she looks younger, but deep set-in wrinkles on her forehead and between eyes are still there.

your correct.

Botox is not used as a filler. Its for lines.

The hollow of the checks would be "rejuviderm", or products like that, there are several others, and they keep coming up with more.
I had my hollow cheeks done, and it does make a difference, but as a man, they can't or don't or shouldn't put in as much where you have "cheek bones" like a woman, you don't want to look plumped up, it will not look natural. After all, the idea of this is to look good, and natural, NOT like a mannequin, or you do not want to look like you had "something" done.

The fillers last around a year, depending on the hollowness of ones skin. Mine has been done over a year and a half and still looks fine, I've had botox on the forehead and the 11's in between the eyebrows.

Now, they are no longer putting filler in between the eye brows (drats) and that's where I really need it, because there are tiny blood vessels around that area, and in some patients if it wasn't done right, has lead to blindness. My determologist just does a little and lightly on the surface in that area, as opposed to going really deep with fillers. (Sight is more important than hiding lines.)

I'm all for the fillers and Botox, but you can NOT have your neighbors, sisters mothers aunt that has a co worker that lives on a farm come to do it to earn extra money, or a "lady" that comes to your house and does a "filler party".

NO.

You must have a determologist, or a plastic surgeon do it.

Id never let anyone else other than people in that profession inject "something" they call botox in my body.

just something to think of.

I guess it takes a few time going there to figure out how much you need. Every person is different.


No, one shot isn't enough for the forehead. It is several since it is a big area. I am not sure but I think it doesn't spread more than half an inch around it - otherwise your eyes might get numb
Do they do just the area between the eyebrows without the entire forehead?
