Preventative Botox | Skin Care Tips and Tricks

hey guys welcome back to my channel

today I am going to talk about something

that so many of you have asked me about

and I feel like it's something that

should be openly discussed I've been

doing it since I was 21 and that the

creator of this mini confidential which

is a buck a podcast and a YouTube

channel if you're not subscribed you

guys should subscribe because we're

doing weekly videos now I will never

forget the first time I knew I needed

Botox I was actually on the way to my

sister's graduation and I was driving in

the car and the sunlight was shining

directly on your face you guys know when

that happens new glance in the mirror

and you're like who not the best light

that was the situation I looked in the

rearview mirror and I had a number 11

between my eyes I was 21 years old so

I'm this type of person that's all about

prevention which is why I don't go in

the Sun so I thought to myself I can let

this wrinkle get deeper or I can nip

this in the bud and get a little

Botox between my eyes so I made the

appointment two weeks later with the

woman that I still get Botox from to

this day she's very very conservative

and I think she did like ten units

between my eyes to start it was right

here and magically the wrinkles went

away now again this is when I was 21 so

that's very young to start Botox but it

nipped it in the bud and I noticed that

even I couldn't found too much and also

it kind of opened my eyes up I know that

sounds weird but it kind of lifts

everything up a little bit everyone says

that okay I'm not crazy so it just kind

of opens everything up which is great

because you don't want to be in a

complete resting Feraud

position I don't all the time so it kind

of just opened everything up in a nice

flattering way as I went on and

continued to get Botox I would do it

every year so every year I would go

and it started that I needed 20 units so

about two years ago I started getting 20

units and I got like four shots it was

like here here here and here so it kind

of went into the forehead and now I just

feel like I don't have wrinkles on my

forehead because I did those

preventative measures I'm not here to

say that Botox is for everyone by the

way everyone is different everyone looks

different everyone has different

genetics I think you have to do what

works for you I'm just sharing my story

do you get known up before you get Botox

done I don't get none DUP I paint

needles more than life itself

but for summary is that when it comes to

beauty I'm not as weird about needles

then when it this sounds weird but I'm

really worried about Hospital needles so

I'm not as weird about it when it's

beauty but I do lay down before always

or I'll take it Basco bagel they go back

goal whatever it's called I don't know

what it's called but I think when I see

needles so I lay down I close my eyes I

don't use numbing cream it's not a big

deal it's like a quick pinch pinch pinch

pinch and then you're done and I

actually feel the effects of Botox

immediately the girl that does my Botox

she says I'm crazy but I do feel it

immediately sometimes it takes a day or

two to set in do I get bruises I have

never gotten bruises except once I got a

tiny bruise right here it wasn't a big

deal I threw some Laura Mercier's secret

concealer on that and I was good to

go you can bruise though some people do

bruise and if you do bruise easily don't

they say to cut advil yeah don't do

advil don't do blood thinners do not do

not take omega-3 or fish oil like five

days before you get Botox or you will

bruise arnica pineapple juice pineapple

juice also does great things for men so

put that put that pineapple juice next

to your boyfriend take outfit um you

don't want to get Botox anywhere near

your smile lines so I had a friend who

got Botox right here and right here and

she couldn't smile for like a year

actually she could smile but it was this

really forced weird smile so don't get

Botox around

like the lip line the lip area you want

to get it more up here at least in my

experience yes I also have not done

anything around my eyes I'm just like

there's something about a needle coming

towards my eyes that gives me severe

anxiety so nothing around my eyes or the

lower face is for me I'm just sticking

with my number 11s right here I also

think this may sound crazy and tell me

if you guys do this why are you laughing

oh you're laughing at me and I'm feeling

blast I also think that you need to look

at your parents and your grandparents

and see where they wrinkle cuz wrinkles

are genetic so if you look at at the

history and you look what happened

before you you can kind of see where

you're going to get the wrinkle and

daddy I love you but you do have an 11

between your eyes hey I'm the

wrinkled police and I'm the first to

tell you where you point to where I get

injected 1 2 3 4 but when I was 21 I

only did right here and I actually heard

from dr. Dennis gross that if you're a

man you should get only 10 units in your

forehead and you should dilute it with

water definitely talk to your doctor if

you're a guy and thinking of Botox and

ask him what it's like to dilute it with

water so you always want to get a good

doctor and a good injector and someone

that has had a lot of experience do not

take this opportunity to use Groupon you

want to use someone that knows their

that has the hand of the artist but

what's the hand of the artist like what

am I trying to say like that that

artistically knows the face do you know

what I mean you want to you want someone

that's experienced you you don't want to

go to some like Tupperware Botox party

and be getting injected by like the

person who's selling your Tupperware

that's like an MLM service like you

gotta like do your research with the

Botox um the girl I use is in Rancho

Santa Fe California hi my name is

Gwendolyn teller thank you

go to her she was amazing at Bella Botox

and again she's very very very

conservative now I get Botox every nine

months to a year it just depends you

know I think again you have to do what

works for you here I would not get it

injected more than every nine months I

think just like for me that's too much a

lot of people have like a misconception

of Botox and filler you can like see the

difference the difference between filler

and Botox is that Botox is gonna freeze

the area it's not gonna fill in the

wrinkle it's just gonna freeze the area

so you don't move it as much so it

doesn't exhaust the area that's

wrinkling so the wrinkle doesn't get

deeper it just prevents it so if you

actually want your wrinkle filled that's

a whole different story

I would start for me personally with

Botox I think just to like relax that

muscle and not make it move and get

deeper it's really preventative there's

other uses for Botox - I haven't tried

them but before I got jaw surgery my jaw

pain and TMJ was so bad that they had

recommended that I get Botox in my jaw I

didn't go that route but I do know you

can I've also heard of friends who get

it for perpetual sweating I don't like

to wear deodorant and I perpetually

sweat but I just don't want Botox

underneath my armpits

again you got to do what's right for you

and then I've also heard my friend Sean

her friend gets it in her neck because

she has tremors in her neck is that

right um so there's definitely other

uses of Botox I do think it's a little

too much when you go overboard with it

you don't want a completely frozen face

you still want a little bit of movement

which is why a lot of doctors dilute it

with water before you get Botox though

try facial massage it's helped me so

much with fine lines I will leave the

link below to my post that breaks down

how to massage your face at home it's so

easy and it's free and then if you want
