What can you do for the unavoidable wrinkles?

January 15th, 2013 4 Comments


It comes back to the same answer every time: botox.

Now that we’ve crossed the big 3-0 threshold, my friends are not only starting to get botox, but  also getting over the shame factor of it.  With my friends over 40, we share our experiences with different doctors and dilutions in laughter because it’s no big deal.

If I could exercise to tone my face, I would, but I can’t.  Cremes don’t penetrate deep enough into the skin to weaken muscles, which is why they don’t work.

I did this video with my client Dr. Sturm-O’Brien in which we show her technique and educate people on why you should get botox: to fill and prevent wrinkles.  Watch and see my experience; there are two things that make her technique extraordinary!

A lot of doctors are now offering Dysport as a cheaper alternative to botox.  But after hearing Angela’s explanation of it (she blogged about Botox v. Dysport here), I have stuck with botox.

More from Angela on MTM later.  In the meantime, if you’re interested in plastic surgery or non-surgical cosmetic procedures, tweet her @DrSturmObrien or check out her blog.  It’s well written and really interesting! I’m very proud of her.

    Hi Mary! Thank you for the post. Do you ever bruise from getting botox?

    • I have a couple times, but usually no. Sometimes I bleed a little, but it stops almost instantly.

  • It is true that the most effective and easiest way to get rid of wrinkles is Botox, my cousin had this treatment and the results are great.

    • I believe so. Creams don’t get deep enough to affect the muscles, which cause wrinkles.
