    So, I'm approaching 30 in about six months. I've already made up my mind pretty much, but I'm going to get botox and restylane injections later this week.

    I've 'toy-ed' with the idea for the last five years, and I think this will be my gift to myself. This way if I'm really happy with the results then I can get it done again right before my HUGE Birthday bash.


    Thoughts?

    These are all for preventative measures. I have a very good reference to see this doctor. I will consider her opinion as well.

    Botox on my forehead (to possibly prevent those two vertical lines between my eyebrows) and around my smile lines. Just a little restylane to fill in the lines from my nose to my mouth (nasolabial folds).

    TheGuyNextDoor saidWow,, I've studied your pics up close and can't really see what you are trying to reverse... Your skin looks good to me. No giant wrinkles across your forehead or deep set crows feet. Actually you look early 20's to me,, so I hate to see the Dr. take your money for something that might not change much.
    I'm 20 years older and had no work. 10 years ago I whitened my teeth but that's all she wrote. There sometimes are better ways to improve your looks than Botox and Filler. Where exactly on your face do you plan on having these things done?

    I'd do you in a heart beat.... wrinkles and all icon_razz.gif

    My thought is that if you're not able to accept the slighter disadvantages of aging at 25-30 y.o., you'll be in exponentially increasingly troubles emotionally as the years pass. This superficial preoccupation is more than being vain, it reflects the makings for traumatic insecurity as you age.

    You look fine in those pics you have up. I decided to stop tanning last year. About 6 months ago I had a TCA peel to remove some sun damage on the face

    Dear God your only turning 30, why are you bugging?
    Good skin care should be more than enough to look fresh and awake...

    It would be interesting to know if procedures really serve as preventive measures. In other words, if you have something done now, will it make unnecessary doing anything in a few years? I'm no expert in this, but I live in an area where people start getting something done and it becomes addictive. The one procedure is never right, just one more is needed. Or things are fine for a few months, then you notice a slight imperfection, and have another procedure.

    I have heard of cases where someone starts this at a young age, and 30 is young for this, and it becomes a never fulfilling merry-go-round of sadness and frustration. If your mind is made up, probably nothing anyone writes in a forum will have an effect, but from someone who sees this in Southern California, I'd think very carefully before starting on this path.

    Personally I find the whole idea disturbing, but if you think it will make you happy go for it. I just hope you're not setting the groundwork for future disappointment.

    Go out to a book store like Borders and get the mag " New Beauty" head to toe an everything you need to know and Doctors in your area.

    I thing there are better products then Restylne and be careful with Botox.If it is preventative reasons then stay out of the sun use sun screen much better way to go at your age.

    If you ever have work done and use these products I hope you will learn the difference between 2D and 3D. Also if a little is good more may not be so caution may be wise. Hate to see you look like Wayne Newton at 35 icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hence, why it is done every six months.

    Anyways, I've taken extremely great care of my face since probably about 16. So, I'm already pretty up to date on everything. That's why I don't look 29, but I would like to keep it that wayicon_smile.gif

    As far as addicting....Hmmm. It's really just upkeep. At 19 I had liposuction. Always been incredibly happy with the results.10 years later, I'm not really concerned with this becoming a problem.

    Please don't inject anything. Plastic surgery doesn't correct your insecurities, it just hides them. And then a few more years later you'll be back on it again and it will seem even worse.

    Please do not do these stupid injections (at the age of 29!). Who says older looking guys aren't attractive? Older looking guys (on here) are yummy lol icon_lol.gif

    my thoughts?

    i only see few people who look better after botox/plastic surgery. most just look weird or i dont know
    maybe im wrong but they tend to look the same or worst, they look worse.

    like i said, my thoughts, my humble thoughts.

    Before you do that, get a different haircut. Could change how you see yourself. 30 is way too young to be considering the face freeze.

    i'm in full support of using diet and exercise to maintain the highest possible level of fitness and function. i also believe that a good portion of the ravages of aging we visit upon ourselves through lifestyle choices, eg. smoking, excesses of alcohol, and tanning. it seems that these aggressive medical therapies are simply beyond the pale, so to speak, and ultimately lead to costlier and more invasive interventions. as a family medicine physician, i stress to all of my patients that few therapies are more effective than a balanced diet, regular exercise, and restorative sleep. of course, it's ultimately each person's choice, and if you do choose to proceed, i'd suggest that you research the practitioner's cerification and qualifications thoroughly. best of luck and happy birthday in advance. icon_smile.gif

    Just turning 30 and you're injecting Botox and Restylane into your face?

    I'm not going to come down on you and say don't do it
    You're a big boy and you do what ever you want
    But I need to ask the big question here and that's "Why"?

    I've looked at your pictures and I don't see any structural damage that you didn't tell us about
    You're not even 30 so there cannot be damage from age unless you've lived in the Sahara desert since birth and doused yourself with cooking oil everyday

    But is there something that's making you unhappy with the way you look?
    Just be careful that you don't fall into that group of people that start small and eventually go onto bigger and more disfiguring forms of alterations
    Your young good looking and I'm guessing healthy for now
    Enjoy what you have
    Don't waste time and money on what really is a negative change
