I have been asked a lot about whether or not I’ve had work done on my face. Several years ago, I had some work done on my eyes. That’s the first thing I noticed that started to look tired. I have loved the results!! I went to one of the best doctors here where I live. He was conservative in his approach which was important to me. But I’ve ALWAYS been afraid of Botox, which I have found in talking to other women, pretty much EVERYONE has had Botox. Even those women who you’d think would never consider it. It has just always scared me! I see women who to me look like they’ve done way too much, and to me it just doesn’t look good! But a couple of months ago, while I was at a dermatologist appointment, Inna, (pictured here) from Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center explained more to me about Botox. I had my first experience right between my eyebrows. I loved it! It didn’t make me feel frozen like I thought it would. She is very good at what she does, and I completely trust her. I’m thinking now about doing a Light & Laser Facial in a few months. This treats age spots, wrinkles, spider veins, facial redness, moles, birthmarks, pores, uneven skin tone, texture, and more. I’ve never done ANY kind of laser peels or treatments, so I’m looking forward to seeing the results. Here is a fantastic article Inna wrote that would be very helpful to read.
I would tell anyone who is thinking about doing anything when it comes to injections or any kind of work on your face, to go to someone who has been referred to you, and has an impeccable reputation! Don’t skimp when it comes to this stuff! I have heard horror stories about women trying to get a “good deal”! Also think on the conservative side. I didn’t do anything until well in to my 50’s! Just my opinion I know, but to see young girls doing this just seems crazy to me!
Here are a few questions to ask…
1- Ask your provider how long he or she has been doing that particular procedure and how many patients they have performed it on.
2- Have they seen any complications from it and what kind?
3- What percentage of the patients were thrilled with the procedure and would they do it again?
Remember everyone is different and unique and you want to make sure the procedure is customized for you specifically. So there you have it. Just my own thoughts on facial procedures! I’m EXTREMELY conservative and cautious when it comes to anything like this! But I really trust Inna and value her knowledge and opinions!!! I would love to hear your take and experiences!!!
