FROM THE ARCHIVE…
As Botox is a hot topic at the moment – I thought it would be good to share my notes on my experiences – these are unedited from the days after my treatments….
28th May 2011
Ok…… I am going to be honest here – not a good day yesterday.
Why people do this for vanity is beyond me.
Ok I was feeling rather sick even before we started, but I was not panicking. The injections hurt, I cannot be any kinder, the ones in the forehead and neck really hurt, the ones at the side of the head where fine and the ones the shoulders where OK. The four in the neck felt just the same as the GNOB going in as it done with a long needle. (You will be pleased to know I did hold off hurling until we got to the station on the way home!)
Ok I was bit of a wuss and almost fainted twice (had to lay down for a bit) and yes I cried and finally swore at the doctor, after coming out with the full shakes – I was the first of the group to go and felt a little sorry for them having to hear me moan and then watch me come out in a bit of a mess :O.
Anyway, I have had a good nights sleep and have woke at a level 2 already My shoulders and neck are a little sore – feel like you have been gardening for a while. The forehead feels a little odd, but not painful, its like you have a piece of cardboard under the skin – feels tight. Thankfully the injections only cover about 1 – 1.5 cm each so I can still move my eyebrows.
Was it worth it……………… time will tell.
