Tania & Myself right after my injections
My selfies over two weeks, notice the difference of the line between my eyes and in the creases in the corners of the outside of my eyes.

Dr. Howley’s Office: Botox
I’ve wanted to get Botox for awhile now but was scared to actually take the plunge. I’m terrified of needles and tend to pass out so I was a little scared to get them in my face, I know, I know, I’m a huge baby! But I have this line between my eyes and it’s been haunting me for the past couple of years. After my dad got sick and passed away I had basically been crying for three years straight and this pesky line just kept getting worse, talk about a huge reminder of my sadness staring me right in the face! So, I finally decided to go for it and was super excited to collaborate with Dr. Howley‘s office. He’s a well known plastic surgeon in Moncton and definitely rumored as being the very best. So I guess if I’m going to go for it then it should probably be with the best. I didn’t know what to expect but as soon as I walked into their office it felt warm and welcoming and they made me feel completely at ease. I met Tania and she was the nurse who would be doing the Botox. She made feel so comfortable and I really wasn’t as nervous as I usually would be with needles involved. I find there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to what Botox actually is and what it does. It’s used to reduce fine line and wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles. I honestly thought that my face would feel so different. I’d always heard that you wouldn’t be able to make expressions and you’d basically look frozen. Well, that was a complete myth, I felt nothing different and actually felt exactly the same. I can totally make expressions with my face and it isn’t in any way frozen. It actually didn’t hurt at all, it was just little pinches, which was a huge relief. It does take 3 days to start working and 7-10 days for it to take full effect. After a few days, I started to see the results and was super pleased. I made sure to take a selfie every day so that I could see the Botox starting to kick in (see the photos above for the daily changes). I went back in last week for a check up and everything looked great. Now I only have to go back in 3 and a half to four months for maintenance. To say that I’m pleased would be a vast understatement, I’m totally in love and so happy that I decided to finally take the plunge and look and feel younger! This line had me stressed out all the time and now I feel younger and prettier and I don’t know about you but I kind of like feeling pretty. If that makes me vain than I’ll wear that badge with honor. Hello, my name is vain and I absolutely LOVE Botox!
Thanks so much to Tania, Lyndsay, Dr. Howley and their entire office staff for making this such an amazing experience!
