I haven't ever tried Botox...but...a friend is hooked up with a company that puts together training seminars for doctors learning about the latest. They needed a guinea pig to show the docs how things turn out, One of the best guys in the business worked on me, and I liked the result. I asked how much it would have cost (fillers, etc) if I had paid, and it was like $7,500. The results were gone within a year, apparently with fillers if you workout a lot they go away quicker. Honestly, while I could see the difference the first couple of days, after that I really didn't notice even though the changes were there. I'm not very focused on my face I suppose. I'm also cheap. Never say never, but at some point I would like to try Botox I think, but fillers really don't hold much attraction. They have asked me to be a model again but I said no, just because I had other stuff going on. I may volunteer again at some point, I don't know.

That's crazy expensive. That's getting near the price-point of plastic surgery. I have a mini-abdominoplasty and facelift coming up in the fall. It was actually supposed to be yesterday, but I rescheduled due to just some shit complicating things right now. Anyway, the facelift is around $12k.

From what I've read, a deep plane facelift is the way to go, but they are pretty expensive. There are some photos here. IMO looks more natural, and are supposed to last longer than traditional facelifts. https://www.newyorkfacialplasticsurgery.com/plastic-surgery-results/facelift/deep-plane-facelift BTW...this is the doctor who did the facelift for Dr. Paul Nasser (of Botched).

I was pretty surprised at the price of the facelift compared to the abdominoplasty. The abdominoplasty works on the entire circumference of the trunk, and the face is a relatively much smaller area. Maybe the face requires more expertise. I'm pretty ignorant of plastic surgery, but I do know that what I'm getting is not a deep plane. My face isn't actually that bad, but I would like to get rid of a bit of turkey neck, nasolabial folds, and it should help pull up the corners of my mouth to mitigate some resting bitch face that I feel is off-putting to people.

That article is interesting. Somewhat tough to follow due to the technical slant, but the before and after pics are ridiculous. Totally different people.

Never knew about this, but i can see how better it is. When I traveled to TX, so many women have work done and they look so stupid. You can tell they had a facelift and now their smile looks like the joker. Then add in the lip injections and all the Botox and im thinking, who sold you this clown face.

Nice thing with Botox is it relaxes fine line and wrinkles And anyone looks better after a treatment as long as that person didn’t make themselves look like a plastic doll that has no movement lol….

I get botox, hyaluraunic acid, and stem cell injections every 3-5 months. Going tomorrow to get some done; not sure what I am getting done tomorrow. I tend to need filler (H-A) more often than anything....but stem cell injections (plasma) sound more appealing and does something that makes the skin look younger. I think they mix your plasma with vitamins and inject it either into your face or scalp, depending on where you want it.
I wound up getting the filler and threads. My face is so sore; grabbed me a little pomade of arnica to assist with the pain/discomfort and have to sleep on my back (only) for the next 3 nights. It feels like pinhead got his hooks in me and stretched out my face like Ernie (from sesame st.)

I've thought about it as I'm getting older. Haven't pulled the trigger on it yet, but I've noticed a couple lines here and there I'd like to get rid of. Mostly forehead area. I know a few people who have done it and they do look younger.

Maybe look into "thread lift"... not as permanent, maybe a few years.

I had filler put in a couple spots that annoy the heck out of me shaving now that I'm old. That stuff hurt like hell for about 4-5 days.

I got arnica (in spanish) not sure how it is said in english but is for topical pain relief. The had them put anesthesia injections on the areas of the thread and filler, but filler always hurts when it is being injected. I have a full-face now. :D

Yeah, PV, my dermatologist tried to talk me into fillers. No way. I am a little vain, but not that vain. Just botoxing away my forehead lines is enough for me. He charges me only 100€ (about $110) and it lasts close to 5 months.

Just did another 26 units for forehead. I screwed up the first time and did not pay attention to the vial (4 units per 0.1ml). For some reason I also thought the vial only had 1ml, but it actually has 2.5ml. That being said, I'm getting a lot of utility out of a single vial. I don't need around eyes, mouth, or anywhere else. It's those deep grooves in forehead. At least for this area, there seems to be a large tolerance for error. I take an Expo marker and mark out 13 evenly spaced dots covering whole affected area (the odd one being dead center but down far enough before frontalis splits). Got caught without 8mm insulin syringes so using 12mm. It's still not hard. Try to go in around 45 degree angle and plunge it about halfway (near the dots, not inside them). Also easy enough to rotate the syringe around in a mirror to see the markings to inject with a fair amount of precision. Did 2 units per site today. Completely avoided area with "angry 11," as this seems to cause drooping eyebrows for me which is extremely annoying. Plus, I don't really have an issue with that area.

Curious how this will do, particularly since this vial was purchased in Feb.

Just did my 3.5 month check in and got it across forehead, brow and eyes. No fillers or fish lips…
