LET’S TALK BOTOX, BABY.
Let’s talk about women like you and me having Botox. (Yes, I’ve had Botox.) Did I need it? Well let’s be honest, no one *needs* Botox in their face. •
But do I NEED to get my roots bleached. Or regular manicures? Or lash extensions? No.
While I don’t NEED to do these things, I choose to because I feel good with blonde hair, polished (quite literally) with a manicure and when it comes to lashes, I save time each day, needing less make-up to feel ‘done’ and yes, all these things make me feel good.
So why not Botox? Something to improve the appearance of my skin, removing those niggling lines, with zero daily effort from me? Yes please! •
Four weeks ago I went to visit @dr_don_aesthetics for my first experience of Botox. If I was going to do it, it had to be with a doctor - and Dr Don is a very good doctor at that.
It’s not about looking younger - I get ID’d in the supermarket enough as it is, I don’t want to look 10 years younger!! It’s about feeling good in my (smooth) skin.
The verdict? No one noticed. Phew! Not that I wanted to hide it, hey I’ll shout about it now, I just wanted to see if anyone did notice. I didn’t want anyone to look at me and say “OMG you’ve had Botox”. That doesn’t mean it hasn’t worked. Hell no. I can see a huge difference and actually don’t mind having my hair off my face more now!
What I have had is plenty of “your skin looks amazing, what have you used?“ and “you look so fresh!”. Result! •
Today I nipped to see Dr Don for a top-up between working, meeting and school runs, just like I’d fit in a colour and cut. No bruising, no marks, just fresh faced and smooooth. Why top-up? Start small to see if you like the effect, then tweak it.
Full disclosure, I didn’t pay for my Botox. I know, I’m super fortunate. But I’m not exaggerating when I say how pleased I am with the results. So huge thanks to Dr Don 🏼 Not just a top doctor but a really lovely guy too.
