Botox for the First Time & Fall Trends

I am loving this look for fall. This sweater is from S and Company Boutique and I have already worn it multiple times, even though its still summer. The shoes and blacktop are also from S and Company Boutique!
After thinking about it for literally years, I finally pulled the trigger and got botox. The place most recommended to me in Rapid City was Pure Medical Aesthetics. I worked with Cicily, R.N., and she was excellent!
My appointment was right in the middle of the workday, which I was nervous about. I took a late lunch and went in. The appointment lasted about thirty minutes, and I left without any noticeable effects.

Why I Wanted Botox

The reason I wanted botox was that I have consistent RBF, and I wanted to fix it. I also wanted to get a filler in the area between my eyes to prevent any wrinkles during the aging process and to stop looking like I was mad to even when I wasn’t (so annoying).

Initial Steps

First, I completed medical history forms and was able to read about the procedure and after-care before we started.
When I sat down for the procedure, I was able to ask Cicily questions, and she eased most of my anxiety. I asked her first if the procedure was safe, and she explained what botox actually does (neuro relaxer), and said that it is an absolutely safe procedure. I also asked how long it lasts– she said 3-4 months. Finally, she said I would see results in about one week. Cicily then wiped off my makeup and sterilized the injection area with an antibacterial wipe.

During the Procedure

I scrunched up my eyebrows and Cecily injected the serum into four different areas (I think, I can’t fully remember exactly how many pricks there were). I was surprised at how painless it was. I definitely felt the prick, which of course made me a little scared, but it felt just like a shot.


I left and felt instantly relieved. Basically, all of my fears were for nothing. I am two days out from the procedure and slightly feel the impacts. I won't see the full effect until seven days after the date of the procedure. But I swear it has helped with my headaches too. Finally, the cost was reasonable. I actually used Xeomin instead of the botox brand (i didn’t realize there were different brands, but they have the same effects), and got it at a discount. Total, I spent $160!
Overall, I would definitely recommend it if you are thinking about it.
