    My gym is holding it's 3rd botox party. Would you say yes to that one wrinkle holding you back from absolute perfection? Do you feel it's appropriate for a fitness facility to be offering this stuff up?

    you inject poison in your face so that you can´t make facial expressions?

    Sounds great.

    Never heard of such a thing at a gym. Who is going to these parties, gay men or straight women. I think its totally bizarre for men to have botox

    Where do you go to the gym?
    That's like buff guys who smoke
    ... or guys that take steroids

    Personally I wouldn't do botox anyway, for a number of reasons. It looks fake, complications can result. . . other things are better and safer.

    And I sure would NOT do it at a BOTOX PARTY AT THE GYM?!? Under no circumstances.

    Only a BOARD CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGIST who is experienced with botox should do such injections.

    This is your face and your body, for god's sake.

    A botox-induced blank expression may be less off-putting than the naturally-occuring vacant look you so often see at the gym.

    I have had it several times 5 shots in each underarm and far be it from me to judge but it means I can wear grey t-shirts I otherwise couldn't since I developed that particular problem in puberty

    Only thing is it's $$$

    Of course it belongs at the gym, where else?
    Tighten up your ass, abs, and face - no difference.

    I have this really deep crevasse on my forehead that I wouldn't mind having "fixed," but my gym only holds bake sales (with cakes and cookies) so I'll have to settle for stuffing my pie hole.

    Go get your wrinkle fixed - we all support you.

    No, not ALL of us support you

    It's OK to fill in your wrinkles. But not at a stupid botox party. . . with injections probably administered by an esthetician who took a weekend class. . . you're just asking for trouble.

    Instead, go see a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in this sort of thing.

    And check out the alternatives. There are other fillers out there better than botox. Safer, they work better, they last longer and they don't give you that stupid expressionless look.

    So funny. So true.

    No. I wouldn't get botox at a gym. People are already beginning to look like zombies with perfect bodies. Can you imagine guys straining and grunting with weights and not able to make facial expressions?

    Not sexy.

    And if you were going to have it, wouldn't you want to go to a doctor who is experienced?
