Out of Forehead Experience: The Dark Side of Botox
Ok, I admit it. I’ve had Botox - once. I had it done to the lines on my forehead. The shots were basically painless, which is a good thing (but, we’re women, pain is irrelevant) And, the Botox did work in pretty much eliminating the lines. Temporarily, of course. The results lasted maybe 6 weeks. But, here’s the kicker: I could not raise my eyebrows, at all, period. It was like my forehead no longer belonged to me. It wasn’t really numb to the touch, but I had absolutely no muscle control of the area. It freaked me out! “Surprise” was not an emotion I could facially convey for 6 entire weeks. (Thank God I didn’t win the Publishers’ Clearinghouse sweepstakes during this time.) Would I do Botox again? Yeah, I probably would, because it did work. But, I will be mentally prepared next time for the “Out of Forehead Experience”.
