Two weeks ago I had my BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) treatment to minimize the deep crease between my eyebrows, and I was so nervous when I went for the appointment. A needle person I am not.
However, the doctor immediately put me at ease. She was in no rush to get to the procedure and took her time explaining the possible side effects to me again, even though I had read through them in great detail on the Brilliant Distinctions® website. She also told me to avoid exercise and massages for 24 hours after treatment, something I’m so glad she mentioned.
She reviewed the Brilliant Distinctions® rewards program with me, and I found out I’d be earning a $20 coupon that day for my next treatment. I’ll have 9 months in which to use that discount toward other Brilliant Distinctions® services or products. She also told me that if I do my Internet shopping through the Brilliant Distinctions® shopping portal, I can earn even more points!
She took some photos of me scowling and relaxing, and then she cleansed the area with alcohol and gave me a series of five injections. It was over pretty quickly and although uncomfortable, it was tolerable, and I was on my way in minutes.
After the treatment, I wasn’t even sure it had kicked in. It was so gradual that it caught me off guard. It wasn’t until I tried to scowl one day and couldn’t that I realized it had begun working. I was invited back after 2 weeks to assess the results, and it was then that I saw how remarkable the change was. I could still see where the deep crease was but it wasn’t as noticeable anymore. And when she asked me to scowl I could barely do it.
I’m really pleased with the entire process, from beginning to end. Finding a local provider and reading pertinent medical information on BrilliantDistinctions.com took away the scary unknowns and gave me the confidence I needed to go ahead and ask about something I’d been thinking about for a long time.
I’m excited to go into the summer after my BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment!
