After thinking about it for literally years, I finally pulled the trigger and got botox. The place most recommended to me in Rapid City was Pure Medical Aesthetics. I worked with Cicily, R.N., and she was excellent!
My appointment was right in the middle of the work day, which i was nervous about. I took a late lunch and went in. The appointment lasted about thirty minutes, and I left without any noticeable effects.
WHY I WANTED BOTOX
The reason I wanted botox was because I have consistent RBF, and I wanted to fix it. I also wanted to get a filler in the area between my eyes to prevent any wrinkles during the aging process, and to stop looking like I was mad even when I wasn’t (so annoying).
First, I completed medical history forms, and was able to read about the procedure and after care before we started.
When I sat down for the procedure, I was able to ask Cicily questions, and she eased most of my anxiety. I asked her first if the procedure was safe, and she explained what botox actually does (neuro relaxer), and said that it is an absolutely safe procedure. I also asked how long it lasts– she said 3-4 months. Finally, she said I would see results in about one week. Cicily then wiped off my makeup, and sterilized the injection area with a antibacterial wipe.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
I scrunched up my eyebrows and Cecily injected the serum into four different areas (I think, i can’t fully remember exactly how many pricks there were). I was surprised at how painless it was. I definitely felt the prick, which of course made me a little scared, but it felt just like a shot.
I left and felt instantly relieved. Basically all of my fears were for nothing. I am two days out from the procedure, and slightly feel the impacts. I wont see the full effect until seven days after the date of the procedure. But i swear, it has helped with my headaches too. Finally, the cost was reasonable. I actually used xeomin instead of the botox brand (i didn’t realize there were different brands, but they have the same effects), and got it at a discount. Total, I spent $160!
Overall, I would definitely recommend it if you are thinking about it.
