Now, in case you’re wondering… okay… what’s the big deal? What’s so great about having a smooth forehead? You’re about to be shown a very lovely before photo of me…
So yeah it depresses me sometimes when my boyfriend keeps taking top down photos of me on holidays or on dates (which I guess he cannot help but do when he is a good 20cm taller lol) and I have been wanting to do something about this for a long time.
That’s not to say I haven’t tried Botox before.. because I have! And let me tell you girls. When you choose a doctor to do Botox shots at, please not only be careful in selecting one but in hearing what they say. Know yourself best and try to do as much research as you can. In my previous experience done by a doctor in a different clinic, I was so desperate to get rid of the lines that I just said, “INJECT IT ALL UP!” Which is a horrid and stupid thing to do because I didn’t know my muscles were so sensitive to Botox.. and well, this is what happened.
And after being told by the doctor that my muscles were VERY sensitive to Botox only AFTER the hellish results did not help because I was already going to be stuck with this face for a good 4-6 months. So yes, be so very careful people.
P/S: NOT 100% blaming doctor here, I think both were somewhat to blame because I should’ve known better than to inject every crevice in my forehead and I half wished my doctor didn’t listen to me either.
However, despite being in awe of everything, the wary side of me made sure to be as careful as I can still. I even showed pictures on my phone of what happened to me and how depressed I was about it. Not that I really had to explain my woes because my doctor, Dr. Celine looked at my photos and almost got a shock herself. She understood that too much Botox had been placed in my forehead to settle too many problems I wanted fixed and she also told me that with every first try.. I should do as minimal as possible so as to ensure the aforementioned does not happen.
On a less serious note.. Can you see that cute little Botox pillow I’m holding? It came in very handy when I was getting my injections done. I’m not so much scared of pain but I get very jumpy when the needle first hits the skin so this stopped me from reacting so much. Plus it’s really so cute haha. I even insisted on getting this photo taken with my completely unglamorous face with numbing cream and sticky pads (I don’t know how else to call those pads to pull your hair back?) in my hair LOL. I’m really looking happy I must say.
Astique Clinic is well known for its extremely affordable services as well as its lovely doctors such as Dr. Celine. 🙂 You’ll never worry about looking scary or unnatural as long as you’re under her care! Though Botox may seem like something that ONLY people above 30 or 40 may do, this is completely untrue. Beauty is for anyone at any age. With the right doctor and the right skills, looking great doesn’t have to be limited in any way.
