No, Baby Botox, is not Botox for babies. It means a very low Botox concentration to erase wrinkles that stills leaves a full range of expression and movement. On Monday I had an injection of “baby Botox” into the marionette lines at the sides of my chin. Sitting on the examination table, I was so scared my knees were quivering. Dr Marmur told me to push out my lower jaw and frown. I could feel a little rush with each jab of the Botox injection. Almost instantly, my anxiety level was replaced by an awesome sense of contentment. Zoloft could certainly take a few lessons from Botox.
The full impact will not be seen for a few days, but within six hours I could see a remarkable difference. I have loved the life I have had — my family, work, friends and travel– but when I caught my reflection in a mirror, it was a face I didn’t really recognize. Today I keep glancing in the mirror and see the girl I knew. I just can’t stop smiling. Truthfully, I am so pleased with the results I am wondering where else I could use this true age eraser. I don’t know if its the relaxation effect or the clear benefits, but its almost addictive.
Good results are extremely dependant on the skill of the doctor giving the shot. One of the best ways to find a talented doctor is through the results of their work on people you know. I actually met Dr Marmur through a friend who showed up at lunch looking like her younger sister. Laura had gone to Dr M and seeing her smoother, fresher face gave me confidence to go though with it.
Baby Botox cost $250, about the price of yet another jar of high end goop that would not make any difference. On Friday, I will post the before and after photos that changed my frown lines into rather sweet dimples.
