Hi Everyone, I'm 52 and always looking for ways/products to improve my skin. I've tried Botox and Juvederm Ultra Plus in the past and wonder if it's really worth it. I'm excited and looking forward to learning any new tips!
Welcome Alicia, I've just have joined the group and just like you I'm concern about all of this if it is worth it. I've tried Botox 2 & 3 times a years around 2001 to 2005 and I had a couple of side effects, shoulder & neck pain and also has affected my vision, and the same happened to my sister. So I started to check side effects of Botox and I found pretty scary stuffs. I wish I could post the URLs here to those sites but I have to have at least 15 posts before I will be allowed.
Thanks Marie...interesting you should mention your side effects, because I've had the same thing happen to me and wondered if it was related to Botox. I've really noticed the difference in my vision. I've used it approximately 6 times between 2006 and present. I've been reading quite a few blogs on the BQ and looked it up last night, sounds good but wonder if that really works.
Alicia, I only realized my problem once my sister had her first (and last) injection in 2005, for her it happened the very same day, 2 weeks before she saw her eye doctor and he told her she has the vision of an eagle, and after her Botox shot, her vision became blurred when she got out of the office and when she went to bed that night, her neck was in pain. My shoulders & neck pain took at least 3 years to dissapear after my last injection because I had have few Reiki treatments and the pain was gone few days after Reiki treatment. As for my vision, nothing changes, I still need glasses to read.
