II have to admit I was anti botox before I met Dr Pradnya Apte. I had good skin, took care of myself, so I didn't think I needed it. Then I started to get older, worked in front of a computer and was very expressive with my face. Then the forehead wrinkles came from nowhere! 2020 was going to be a big birthday year, and I wanted to look fabulous. The past few years were challenging for me, with things happening in my life that would age anyone. I needed to feel good about myself, so why not try baby botox?

I decided to go for it. Three months before my birthday I made the appointment. I was tired of going out with friends, and everyone thought I was their cool mom, even with friends the same age! I have a young spirit, but my face did not match. My forehead wrinkles had to go, waking up and putting on makeup made me feel sad. Looking at all those lines reminded me that I was a seasoned lady.

I was scared about needles being put in my face and people knowing I had botox done. Yet,  when I went to meet Dr Pradnya she assured me I would be okay, and I would love the results.  She suggested we go for Baby Botox, so not a full dose since I was reserved about the procedure. Here we go, I am entering the beauty world of almost perfect. Friends that had it all the time suggested I do me research about the Doctor before my appointment.

Dr Pradnya Apte, also known as The Lip Dentist, qualified as a Dental Surgeon in 1993, but since 2007 she has focused on her passion, facial aesthetics. She opened her first clinic in Exeter in 2015 and her second clinic in London in 2019.

MY Magic Face Lift  WRINKLE RELAXING

She suggested that I get wrinkle relaxing injections, commonly known as Botox.  They are the world's most popular anti-ageing procedure due to their effectiveness at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Botox works by stopping nerve cells sending signals to muscles, helping them relax and in turn, improving the appearance of wrinkles.

Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Most patients require only one treatment* Results can last up to 6 months for many patients* Non-surgical procedure 


HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST?

Generally, the effects last on average 4 months though this can depend on one individual to another depending on their metabolic rate, stress levels, and if they are on certain medications.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT?

Sometimes it is common to see small raised bumps at the injection sites, but these should go down within 20-30 minutes. It is also quite common to experience a mild headache and in some instances, very mild flu-like symptoms. These can be treated with over the counter painkillers.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

Wrinkle softening is a straightforward procedure. They simply use a fine needle to inject painlessly into specific areas to smooth out those lines and wrinkles. These are my new after pictures. What a difference, now I just need to dye my roots!

HOW OFTEN CAN YOU  HAVE IT DONE? 

It's recommended that you wait until your previous treatment has worn off before having more Wrinkle relaxing treatment. This treatment can be combined with other treatments such as facial fillers to make your skin look even younger and fresher.

Not sure if it was because I am a baby to botox, but the results made me smile more. My forehead wrinkles are gone! I did not tell anyone and men were like "wow your face is glowing! " Female friends commented wow your face looks fantastic, only the ones who get botox could tell something had changed and whispered in my ear:


" Did you finally take the plunge? You look fabulous. "
Birthday Baby Botox My Meeting with  Dr Pradnya 


This Birthday I was feeling more confident than I have in years.  My theme song right now is You're So Vain, and I do not care!  The Goddess is back, and all she needed was a meeting with Dr Pradnya to get her groove back.  I will not go overboard but maybe I will visit her Skin Southeast clinic twice a year now to keep looking refreshed.  Because I cannot even believe the before and after! My skin loved the pick me up and it is still looking healthy, younger, and my forehead is wrinkle-free.
