One Year of Botox

Last year I embarked on a journey which I said was never for me. However, I am a woman and that entitles me to change my mind and I did. I gave Botox a go.

I must admit I was nervous about having Botox, so I made sure I did my research and found myself a doctor who was on the medical register and who practised aesthetic treatments in her own clinic.

I visited her clinic for a consultation and was offered the treatment at this point. I declined, despite a 3 hour round trip for my visit. I wanted to be sure this was what I wanted, and go over things discussed during my consultation.

Now a year has passed and I have visited Morley Aesthetics every three months for my injections. At first, I didn’t really know what the result would look like, so I would send Claudia a short video 2 weeks after seeing her.

I have to say I am absolutely delighted with the results I have achieved this last year. I personally think I do not look like I have Botox in my number 11’s. I don’t have a frozen look. These number 11’s are nowhere near as deep and prominent as they were 12 months ago. To me I don’t look so angry anymore. As the muscle is not able to move like it used to it gives the skin a chance to repair, therefore rejuvenating those deep lines.

Dr Claudia did mention that I could have filler inserted into the lines to smooth them out even more, but she also told me that this was a ‘high risk’ area! Guess who’s a chicken – yep me! Let’s just leave it as a ‘maybe one day’ but right now I am happy to carry on with the Botox. 

The end result has been an investment in myself. It has cost me £1050 for my injections. A lot of money that I could have spent on a holiday had COVID-19 not come and ruined my plans. However, broken down this is less than a cup of coffee each day at work!

I will continue to have my Botox injections as an investment in myself. It does make me happy not to see such deep, angry lines on my forehead. A positive result, so I am glad I did it.

    Wow! The result is amazing! What makes it even more amazing is the fact that it equates to just one cup of coffee per day (I have about 4!).
    I have been toying with the idea of Botox for a while, so your tip on finding a reputable practice first and then thinking about things is great advice. After all, why rush into something that you may know nothing about.
