If Botox was as easy to get as styling gel where would you put it first?  I would put it on my eyes!

    • I am afraid of Botox. Knowingly putting poison in my system is a scary proposition for me. I know that you have to “top off” the treatments every few months or so. My question is “where does the last bit of it that was injected go“? ohhhh

    • Does Botox enlarge?  Then you know where I will prefer.

    • I sadly have several friends who started on this road around 8 years ago .....now they can’t move their face and they register no emotion ... crying or happy they just look amazed .. strange really.

      If I had it at all I would have it in my feet in the summer to stop them sweating !

    • Where? I’d fill up these not-so-funny laugh lines!! They look like parenthesis!! UGH!!!
      I’m not afraid of it either~ if you think about it, almost every medication on the market was made from some of the ingredients that are found in botox such as botulism. They‘re safe, so...
      Anyway, yeah...not enjoying lines on this face! lol

    • I don’t think I would either...as much as I would like to delay the aging on my face...I would not even consider going there...I have seen what it does to people (celebrities) and I don’t think it would be worth it...

    • I agree with Karyno. The pictures of celebrities scare me. And although I’m sure Jenz is right about botulism and other things associated with Botox being in medications we use, I can’t justify Botox for vanity and not health.
      And it seems that it’s being abused to me. Young women have no business using it, yet they do.

    • Can I point something out your face has to move ... so a side effect of over use (see Nicole Kidman) is your get strange wrinkles next to your nose known as bunny whiskers and right on your hairline ....

      I would rather have laughter lines than a bunny twitch nose !

    • Vicki, Nicole Kidman looks odd to me, almost plastic. She looks like a mannequin brought to life.

    • Agreed.. There are other ways to correct things besides botox if one is choosing to go that route. It’s a personal decision & usually quite costly. Estee Lauder has some FANTASTIC products to tighten or plump skin & they really do work.
      Just an idea..

      I’ve heard good things about “Restalaine”  (sp?)

    • Me too Jenz. I have heard Rest....(sp) is getting good reviews. But of course I would read everything about it also before using it.

    • If you are a label reader like I am, you will be amazed at the ingredients in almost everything we consume or apply to our body.  My rule has been to if I can’t pronounce it or have difficulty trying to say it, it stays on the shelf.

      I would, though, pass on the botox...

    • I want to fill in the pockets under my eyes rather than have the extra removed.  Is botox used for that??

    • BB,

      Who knew you could be just as serious about a thing as you are comical.

      I guess we notice lead poisoning when it’s larger than life and are colorblind when it’s in our lipstick.

      Thanks for sharing.

    • yes...rejuvaderm.  That’s it!  Ive been seriously looking into that due to the fact that these pockets are getting deeper.  I believe its because of all the pulling to put in contact lenses these past 30 years!!!

      Im interested in the No Old Bags Allowed stuff.  I dont think Ive ever seen that before.

    • Hadn’t looked at this thread in awhile - BB - I did have botox done a couple times - the 11 lines as you mentioned - had the creases on the forehead done once too - but I’m an EYEBROW Raiser, lots of facial expressions!  So the forehead didn’t work well for me.  Liked the look, but need to move my brows!

      The 11 lines I would probably do all the time - - - but haven’t not a priority......

      I am gonna ck out the Estee Lauder that Liz mentioned - & the UK space  happy  WHY NOT?  Since I’m gonna be back on the market, I may want to smooth this face a wee bit!
