How do you feel about Botox?

My friends mom just turned 45 and she's already getting Botox. I think it's ridiculous, because she doesn't need it and it just looks stupid now. How do you feel about Botox, and people who use it??

My wife is 46 and has been getting botox treatments for at least 2-3 years. I don't encourage it - but she wants to do it, so I don't say anything.

I'd never get it myself but if it makes a person happier, more power to them.

"Their body, their choice" is how I like to look at these things.

I am deathly afraid of needles so would never ever do it but thats my choice for my body, if someone else does it and they are happy with their choice then go for it

I would never do it unless it would benefit my health, as I know there are some situations where it helps the health of the person. I would never get it just to look younger. After going through my first surgery (on my foot), there is NO WAY I would subject myself to pain like that. Only if (God forbid) something horrible happened, like disfiguring, then and ONLY then would I.

Having worked in a cosmetic practice, first of all I feel that Dysport is much better than Botox. It is less expensive, works faster, lasts longer, and is made the exact same way. If you are getting it for cosmetic purposes, it is the way to go. If you are getting it for medical purposes, most insurance companies won't pay for Dysport, they only want the Botox.

That being said, I think that starting as early as 16 or 17 is an incredibly good idea. It is a preventative for wrinkles as well as helping with headaches and stress. Now, of course you have to go to a doctor who knows what the heck they're doing, so that you CAN NOT TELL that you have had the injections. That's the thing about any cosmetic procedure. You want it to look as natural as possible.

You don't want to lose your smile, you just want to prevent that "11" between the eyes, and the "smokers lines" around the lips.

Botox is an excellent way to prevent you from using those muscles which CAUSE the wrinkles, and as long as you are seeing a physician who has been fully trained and comes with good recommendation, there are NO negative side effects to having these injections.

When I have kids, once they get older, maybe around 18 or 19, I'd happily pay for it if they wanted this procedure. I currently have gotten 7 sets of injections (I am 24) because of severe debilitating headaches.

Perhaps your mother should consider looking into other local physicians who give the injections. If you can actually SEE the effects (and not just because her wrinkles go away) then it was done WRONG
