ALL ABOUT BOTOX

July 6, 2018



Wait you get botox?......Ok good so do I! That's what so many girls have said to me after they found out I started getting botox. It's crazy to me that botox is still such a secret to everyone because it has so many benefits I don't know why you wouldn't do it. Now I'll admit, some people do go overboard but so far all of my experiences have been awesome. Let's get into it. 

First of all, what is botox? Botox is a drug used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. 


I recently went to Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery otherwise known as CAPS here in Columbus and I wanted to tell you guys about my botox experience. After we walked in and got a tour we went in a room and I met with my Doctor, Tyler Angelos. He was not only professional but he was funny. I love when people make me feel comfortable before I'm getting something uncomfortable done, does that make sense? lol. He was very honest and didn't just tell me things I wanted to hear. I love that at CAPS the actual doctors are the ones injecting you. 


Dr. Angelos had me hold up a mirror and show him what areas I didn't like about my face. Now let me give you a little back story. I have been getting botox since I was 28, I am 29 now and I always get it in the same three places: my "elevens", my "crows feet" and my forehead. Your "elevens" otherwise known as glabella are between your eyes and your crows feet are the lines you develop next to the outer corners of your eyes when you smile. A few people have commented I am too young to get botox but CAPS believes the younger you start the less your wrinkles will appear as you get older. 


After we discussed everything I wanted, it was go time. The first time I got botox you guys...you're gonna die. I literally had an anxiety attack and starting sweating and almost passed out. I don't like needles and I felt the needle going in my head and puncturing my muscle. When I went to CAPS I was like ok Nicole, get your game face on. There is gonna be a lot of a people around and you don't wanna look like a fool. Then the gates of Heaven opened up and they whipped out this tool... 


See that gold thing right there? That is called the distractor, which is exactly what it does. I put on some Post Malone and they used the distractor and it was all done in less than a minute! I felt like a freakin champ. I got 28 units total. 


Botox takes anywhere from 4-7 days to show up and a maximum of two weeks. 


It lasts 3 months. It can last up to 4 months for some people! 



Botox normally ranges between $10-$14 a unit and like I said lasts three months. You do not have to go every three months but I can definitely tell when I don't. If you live in Ohio you should definitely check out CAPS I will be going back there. They were awesome! 



Thank you for having me CAPS
