The Big B
This is me a few minutes after I came in – with anesthesia on my face. It was on my face for 45 minutes since it was my first time. Dra. Daet tells me this is just a “lunch break treatment” for a lot of women. They come in for injection during lunch with no anesthesia, just ice, and leave to go back to work!
While here I am acting cool but freaking out inside because I’m anxious of how it will feel, will my face be paralyzed, so many things.
Telling myself I can do this. Psyching myself to suck it up because it’s either this or a year of braces. No no no to braces. Hahaha!
Here we go. Dra Daet draws on my face to make sure she doesn’t go past the point where you can’t inject Botox into. One of the key takeaways from this experience is find a board-certified dermatologist you trust for this. This is not something a therapist can just do. No no no!
This is ittttt!! Dra. Daet shows me how many units she’ll be injecting in each of my masseters. Since my right masseter is larger, she’ll inject a few more in my right than in my left.
Last numbing technique so I won’t feel the injection – ICE!
Okay, I wasn’t able to take photos of the injections mismo ‘cos I was concentrating on my breathing while Dra. Daet inject. Ha ha!
