Botox — are you for or against? Well looking at Heidi Montag, I’d say that I am adamantly against all plastic surgery since she no longer resembles a human, but rather more of a feline? [Shanna, that was mean, be nice] Okay, I thought she was cute before and now I think she looks incredibly stretched and silly. But I think she also went overboard…not just a little. A lot. (I think the “Before” image below is even post her first round of surgeries.)
Again, I digress. So, Botox, eh? Wondering what I’m going to write are ya?
Have I had it? Heck no! I’m only 30. Have I thought about it? Yep, I live in California where beauty reigns supreme, but luckily in NorCal your noggin’ is valued even more My 2 years in LA did have me thinking about my image drastically more than I do now, which is already too much some would say. There are areas that I’d, hmm, errr, um, enhance And yeah there are areas that I’d take a hatchet to (see ya later outer thighs), but I probably never will since I truly find more satisfaction in working for it.
According to Ramona (Real Housewives of NYC), she claims Botox and similar procedures are not plastic surgery. Not sure if I agree with this particular Ramona-ism. But I ask you, what if you use Botox for medical reasons???
Have you read an article like this?
I found out a about a year ago that they actually will inject Botox in your jaw to inhibit grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw. This intrigues me because my dentist is continuously pressing me to get a night guard for my furious and ferocious grinding that occurs when I sleep. I’m also wondering if my jaw clenching is exacerbating my migraines??? Possible, no?
Well check out this article!
Now, they are saying you get a single Botox injection to your forward to decrease the frequency of migraines. Really? Not sure I see the medical evidence on that one, but again, I’m intrigued.
Botox in the jaw somehow seems more medically purposeful since clearly I’m not trying to de-wrinkle my jaw (it’s quite tight, thank you). But if I told people that my forehead injections were to prevent migraines, I’d be laughed out of town! That’s like saying I got breast implants for better balance, right? Yeah, I didn’t think so
Anyway, I found this interesting and if there was substantial medical proof, I’d look into it as a possibility. But for now, I’ll be Botox free…even if it means a lil pain! Or perhaps, I’ll succumb to the night guard and alter my diet a wee bit as suggested by Fit Sugar’s article on foods-fight-migraines.
