I’m back… I missed you!
And recently, one of my best friends, Donald, came back too—self-proclaimed “Six-foot six and full of tricks” To those who don’t know Donald, he’s achieved a bit of “first name celebrity status” in these parts (much like Angelina or Brad has done worldwide, but not really). But for the past two years, Donald has been working in Africa on a military base. He has hardly ever complained about not having the luxuries from home. What he does miss, however, is one of the simple necessities of life —BOTOX! He’s getting by overseas. But like Samantha from “Sex in the City” once declared, “Nothing in life is guaranteed but Botox.”
And so, when a friend like Donald comes back to town, I can offer him a few key things… a good laugh, a respectable (but not great) glass of wine & info on where to get the BEST BOTOX in town!
Botox can be a bit of a taboo subject.—the cost, the effect, (the accusations?). But Taboo Shmaboo. I love Botox –
For these few reasons….
* It gives you a very natural look of being well rested and relaxed, especially when you find an injector who has a conservative and gentle touch -which I have found at Ruff Plastic Surgery here in DC. Trust me. If I came out looking like one of the Bravo (deer in headlights) Housewives, then I’d be afraid of Botox too! But not to worry… Here’s how to test if you’re a candidate or not. If when you’re in resting position, you have fine or deep lines on the forehead, between the brows or around the crows, Botox will -when done right, addresses them. Talk about a magic eraser! It truly does make you look rested –which we all want — and no longer looking mad or frustrated.
* Another reason I love Botox is that it doesn’t last forever. To really get a feel for the difference it can make, you can sample a splash of it here or there. You will soon discover the amazing results. Once injected, it takes 3-5 days to start working. And on average, it lasts 4 months. It takes effect slowly and then gradually fades away — keeping with the natural theme.
I look at Botox as a secret weapon to help keep my look “fresh.” As kids are adding up around this house, and I don’t foresee a long, relaxing nap anywhere in my near future, I rely on Botox to keep me looking well rested. I’m in my mid 30’s and I’m not trying to look younger, just fresh. I continue to take care of my skin with medical grade products, peels and occasional laser treatments. But 1 to 2 times a year, I will treat myself to a splash of BOTOX!
Check out Donald’s before & after pics below. He had Botox injected to 3 areas: forehead, crows and between the brows.
I will continue to share more before & afters here on the blog.
