Tomorrow I turn the big three-oh… Eek!
As I’ve decided to be proactive in regards to fending off my demise into Oldsville, I popped into Just Skin Aesthetic Clinic in Green Point for a bit o’ Botox.
Was met at the door by darling Carol MacCallum, the owner, with a nice glass of Pierre Jourdan bubbly. (It’s delish and tastes a bit like honey…)
Now, let’s take a look at some of the lines I decided to zap…
Now this is my lovely new Botox doc, Dr. van Niekerk.
Must say, I thought Dr. van Niekerk is absolutely divine and I recommend him whole heartedly. Dude really knows his shizz and could answer all my technical questions in-depth. He also gave me a top tip:
Next time you’ve got a big night out, or just want to look extra fabulous, apply your night cream nice and thick and place some cling wrap over your face for ten to twenty minutes. This will ensure the cream gets absorbed deep down into your skin to plump it up and give your face a lekker glow.
See how he’s did it to me?
This helped the anaesthetic cream soak in super-fast. And it really worked too… I didn’t feel a thing! (The last time I had Botox, I bragged to the doc about how I had this super fly pain threshold. I was all like, ‘You can’t hurt me… I’m a migraine sufferer… Pain’s my best friend…’ and then felt like a total idiot while I lay on the bed wincing and squealing at each and every prick… )
Now, four days later, I can feel (and see) that the ‘tox has totally kicked in. Check out my eye:
In these piccies (the first one taken with flash and the second without) I’m doing the exact same big grin I did while taking the ‘before’ shot. In fact, I’m trying to ‘smile with my eyes’ even harder than before in an attempt to make just to make a few linetjies, but I can’t. It’s, like, totally impossible… Woo hoo!
Love your work Dr. V!
So, if you’re looking to do a little wrinkle-busting, give Just Skin a call on (021) 433 1783 to make an appointment. In regards to cost, zapping my crow’s feet and a few frown lines cost just over R1 600. I can’t tell you what you’ll pay as each individual requires a different amount of ‘tox.
Just Skin is also running a rad special on laser at the mo; up until the end of this month, you can book a course of 6 sessions (for any area) at 50% off!
