Anti- Aging Botox at Fashion Week

Before BotoxI can’t wear  4 inch high  cage shoes, don’t  have access to the Conde Nast closets  and the last time I wore size 2, I was two.  So when you are over 50, getting ready  for Fashion Week means  turning to science rather than shopping.  To give me a little extra confidence, I asked my wonderful Dr Ellen for her amazing “baby botox”.  These are smaller than usual  amounts of Botox  to  just give a little extra  anti-aging smoothness, erasing the crows feet around my eyes.  It actually takes  a few weeks for the full effect to appear–  erasing the years of worry lines and wrinkles  that  makes  the whole face look  happier and  fresher.  I also  use a bit of Botox to relax aging neck   muscles under the chin for a smoother jawline.

I started with 30 aligners to  pull … Continue Reading…
