  • Do Juvederm Ultra instead. It is FDA approved. It lasts up to 1 year and doesn't make your face look like a mannequin. I think they start around $700 and up. Botox will only last you a few months...

  • I would be careful starting it unless you want to keep it up for life. It messes with your skin's elasticity and you can come out looking worse when it wears off than you started. If you plan to keep it up, then by all means...and I think the price is really coming down.

  • I had botox but for medical reasons, not for appearance. But I can tell you it's expensive. For 3 shots, for medical purposes that insurance did not pay for, it was $1000. Expect to pay that much. Not to mention that it only lasts 3 to 6 months. Basically you are paralyzing your muscles. They may be frown lines, but what about your smile? This may prevent you from being able to. You definitely do not want that.
