They should tell you this, but you can’t bend over or lie down for at least 4 hours after. Otherwise it could migrate.

Yes! Don’t lay down or bend down for 6 hours.
Also suggested to not workout or do any intense workouts for at least 24 hours

You will LOVE it! But be patient! Mine took about 5-6 weeks to show results when they said it would take 3-4 but so worth it once it kicked it. My 1st I was thinking the worst and then it kicked it.

Yeah they told me full results in 2 weeks but I basically saw it fully in 72 hours

Okay guys I did it ! Got 20 units in my forehead. Here’s hoping for the best 🤞🏽

If you haven’t had your consult yet really make them take their time.
You can get Botox or Dysport. They end up costing about the same but dysport kicks in much quicker.
If you want your eyebrows to have a slight lift tell them.
I would also be slightly conservative on your first time. A good injector should do this. But you can always go back and get more. If you get to much and hate it you will always have that bad taste in your mouth.

Otherwise, you will love it and want to do it again as soon as you see any wrinkles come back lol. I got mine done last in December and it’s about to head back in for more.

I get Dysport, which is basically the same as Botox (same actives) but cheaper.

You can’t wear makeup for 24 hours, can’t wash your face for 6 hours, and can only put a light moisturizer on after that until the next day.

You may get some bruising at the injection site and for me, it lasts a couple of weeks before it fully fades away. My makeup doesn’t fully cover it.

No exercise for the rest of the day afterwards and don’t touch/massage the area for 24 hours afterwards.

Your injector should go over all this in post-procedure care with you but please make sure you ask questions if you have specific circumstances!

They also recommend not to drink alcohol for 24 hours afterwards.

You’re welcome 😉 I hope you enjoy your results!!

I also just got Botox for the first time last weekend. I’m 55 so I think that was a “conservative” decision lol. I’m really happy, but I gotta say, I didn’t expect to look like “Valley of the Dolls” meets “Vendetta”.

Pharmacies are saying it may be another couple of months before they expect adderall to be back. Anyone else having this issue? Was on Adderall 10mg twice daily. Now on Ritalin 10mg twice daily. I just don't have the same level of focus!

I had an assistant in another office of my firm help with a big filing. It required the assistant to work past midnight on a Friday to get everything out. I’m extremely appreciative that this assistant went above and beyond to get this done, and a thank you email (already sent) seems insufficient. I think I should get this assistant a gift. Money/gift card feels practical but impersonal. Maybe a nice bottle of wine? Looking for guidance on what to get/how much to spend.
