Botox Beginnings – How I Became a Botox Believer
By: Allan E. Wulc, MD September 7, 2016 Category: Injectables
Prior to working at W Cosmetic Surgery, Botox (or injections of any kind) never crossed my mind. I was under the impression that I wouldn’t need injections until I got “old” or “wrinkly.” I soon came to understand that was not true. The more time I spent assisting Dr. Wulc and watching patients of all ages see the benefits of Botox, I became a believer.
I got my first Botox injection three years ago. I was 23. I was extremely unhappy with the deep lines across my forehead. Because I am very expressive, I noticed no matter what creams I used or how hard I tried to consciously not use my eyebrows or forehead, the lines never went away. So, I figured I’d give this Botox thing a try.
I didn’t go home the first day looking wrinkle-free. It takes time to work its magic. Within a few weeks, I started to notice that I seemed to age in reverse. After the first couple of injections, I could see how much softer the deep lines became and how much smoother my forehead looked. On top of that, I noticed a lift in my eyebrows which helped me look much more awake and refreshed. Three years later and those deep lines that I thought would never go away are nonexistent. I get injections every three-four months now, so the wrinkles don’t have a chance to reappear.
