As many of you read in my earlier article, Dr. Lily Talakoub will be popping up at Bellacara this Friday for consultations and injections. I myself had her administer Botox several weeks ago. Though I was nervous, I had complete faith in her as several people I know are her clients. However, I wrote the last article immediately following my visit and so I had no real information to report on the effects of my procedure.
Now that a few weeks have passed, I have to say that I am very pleased with the results. The lines on my forehead have pretty much disappeared. I am still able to raise my eyebrows and make meaningful expressions. The Botox has simply softened my appearance. I definitely think that asking for less is the best course of action for those of you who are considering it for the first time.
My plan is to keep up with it just enough to maintain these results, so I’ll be asking her on Friday how often she thinks that will be. I think Dr. Lily will be an integral part of my plan to age gracefully: good skincare and a little help from Dr. Lily.
I hope to see many of you this Friday; it will be a fun afternoon. You’ll definitely leave more knowledgeable…and you may leave looking a bit more refreshed!
