Would you ever get Botox?

I have a few friends, in their thirties, who have done it and everyone says the same thing, ‘It makes you look…. refreshed‘.

I have enjoyed seeing their results–which have been really nice yet subtle, to be honest–and curiously picking their brains about the procedure, cost and of course, how badly does it hurt?!  

While I’m not sure for myself, I am definitely not ruling it out a few years down the road.  At the same time, the thought is scary because it’s your face.  I want to age gracefully, through preventative measures (SPF every day, staying out the sun, being physical active & getting plenty of sleep… that last one doesn’t really apply to me) but let’s be honest, it’s happening whether we like it or not.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, if you’ve tried it before or even if you are totally against it and your reasons.  Sound off in the comments below!

An update after the jump…

I had a guy friend reach out to me, he wanted to comment anonymously, but as you know, I’ve disabled this feature for the time being.  That said, I loved what he had to say and wanted to share it here:  

“Dear women,

I want you to know that you’re absolutely beautiful the way you are. All the scars, all the lines, all the little imperfections tell a different story. A story that all the great guys out there love.”
