This is a question Shelley Bridgeman of the New Zealand Herald asked and put her two cents in regaling a story of her ‘first time’. Heres an excerpt from it:
I first got Botox injected into my face four years ago. I like to blame a boozy lunch at Andiamo and the company I keep. I also blame my brother whose 30th was approaching at the time. He’s a whole 13 years younger than me and I didn’t want to look unduly decrepit amongst all the party-goers at his birthday bash.
At lunch that day two of my friends announced they’d just had Botox thanks to a two-for-the-price-of-one special offer. I was in a taxi later when I received a text from another friend who’d been at the same lunch and who was also a Botox virgin. She wrote: “I’ve booked you and me in for the same Botox deal which only runs until the end of the month. We’ll have to be fast.”
I agreed to it but then reneged the next day. Call me old-fashioned but half-price Botox administered by a nurse just didn’t appeal. So a few days later I had full-price Botox injected by a doctor.
What’s interesting to note is her decision about choosing a qualified doctor to inject. We’d love to know your thoughts about this and also hear the stories of your ‘first time’! Why not hit up our facebook page and give us your ‘two cents’!
