Nicole: Hi, I’m Nicole, and I’m back at the LaserAway in West Hollywood, and today I’m trying Botox. Shh.
Attendant: We’re doing Baby Botox today, because you are a first-time patient when it comes to Botox. So if you feel that you want more in two weeks, we can always inject you with more, but you’ll definitely see results after this treatment. You’ll still have movement. It’ll just be diminished.
Nicole: I always thought that when you got Botox that you couldn’t move your face at all.
Nicole: It’s not like that anymore?
Attendant: Here at LaserAway, we don’t like to give the frozen look. We always under treat and have you come back in two weeks if you want more for touchups. Okay. Now I’m going to have you make some facial movements. If you can go ahead and frown for me. And relax. Perfect. I’m just going to mark where I’m going to be injecting you. Perfect. And if you can go ahead and frown one more time for me. And relax. Perfect. Okay. So I’ll be right back with the Botox.
Attendant: Okay? And relax. Okay. Here we go. One, two, three, poke. You okay?
Attendant: Good. Now I’m going to inject the product here. How are you doing?
Attendant: Good. Coming out with the needle. Excellent. And frown for me. And relax. Okay, ready? One, two, three, poke. You okay?
Attendant: I’m coming out. One, two, three, poke. Okay?
Attendant: One more time. And relax. Okay. Here we go. One, two, three, poke. You okay?
Attendant: Okay, Nicole. This is your last injection. We’re almost done. Okay?
Attendant: So go ahead and frown for me, please. And relax. Ready? One, two, three, poke. You okay?
Attendant: Good. Excellent. Post care: No lying down for four hours. No vigorous activity the rest of the day. Do not massage the areas that were injected just now. No alcohol, Aleve, Motrin, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen the rest of the day to prevent any bruising from occurring. Okay?
Nicole: Okay. So I just finished my first time getting Botox ever, and I was really nervous because I have a huge fear of needles, especially, I mean, if somebody comes at your face with a needle, you’re going to get pretty nervous. It’s so quick that the discomfort was just a little, tiny bit in the very beginning when the needle goes in. I don’t really have any
bruising or not a lot of redness or swelling even, and she put a little antibiotic ointment on there.
I think that somebody could pop in here during a lunch break and get that done, and it wouldn’t even be that big of a deal at all. So I’m really excited to see the results.
