Botox Wrinkle Treatment

I Got Shot In The Face – Botox Wrinkle Treatment Info & Live Video

I started using Botox as a wrinkle treatment about 3 years ago. Not so I could look 20 again. My 20’s, as fun as some of it was, sucked ass. Who wants to repeat that? I started because I wanted to look like me again. Every morning when I looked in the mirror, the me I always knew, was slowly disappearing. The face that was staring back at me was some tired, washed up ‘old‘ version of my awesome, badass self. Sure, I tried all the tubes, bottles and jars of broken promises and ‘cure all’ wrinkle treatments. Ya know? Those assholes lied to me! And cost me a fortune to do nothing more than take up room in my bathroom. So, I set out to find me. In a tiny little vial and a bunch of needles all shooting me in the face. And BAM, just like magic I was back baby!

Let’s face it, we all turn 40 eventually. Or die trying. Which I suppose has an upside, your line free face will never look foreign to you in the mirror. Party on… But, for those of you perky 20 something’s, you’ll be here too. So why ya gotta be hating on me and my tribe? ‘Oh, did you see her, she was probably cute as hell 20 years ago. But man, she’s looking old now” Bitch, this is your future too. How about us ladies stop hating on the face, m’kay? Let’s not equate ‘old’ with ‘bad’… Let’s go with ‘smarter’. Because, been there, done that. I find no shame in my game admitting I get Botox. I look hella good celebrating my birthday. So for me, some subtle upkeep and maintenance, a little ‘wrinkle treatment’ not from a tube of broken promises is totally happening.

Botox Wrinkle Treatment Facts

According to the Mayo Clinic

Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. Used as a wrinkle treatment, he most common use of these injections, is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles, such as:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes
  • Forehead furrows, the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows


Botox can last anywhere from three to six months. Then slowly, the effects start to wear off. Eventually, you go back to your original appearance. For individuals who continue to be treated, gain a long term sustaining effect. Muscles start to develop what is called a “bio-feedback” effect and patients can go longer and longer between treatments.


Results will depend upon both the depth and intensity of the lines. Physicians with more experience are more often able to achieve natural relaxed looks than those without. Do your homework, people. Check these Dr’s out thoroughly before letting them shoot up your face. You want to look familiar, not frozen.


Fortunately, side effects are rare. They can include brief swelling, pain, and/or bruising at the injection site. In extremely rare cases (or if you’re going to a hack physician with not much experience) there’s a chance of an eyelid droop. Botox has a great track record when used properly. It’s been around for approximately 20 years with millions of injections performed. And, since it’s not permanent if you don’t like it or if the results are not everything you hoped for, it will go away.

I’ve been going to Dr. Gregory Hsu (Henderson, NV) for all my Botox injections. One of the most over qualified Dr’s ever for wrinkle treatment, really. And I love the results! Skin is tighter. Wrinkles softer and most in fact, disappeared. When done by an expert, it’s a beautiful thing. And it doesn’t hurt very much at all either. There is a little ‘crunch’ sound, when the needle pierces your skin, it may skeeve ya out. I’m cool with it. It’s totally not for everyone. And I’m certainly not trying to convince you to run out and shoot up.  Just saying, I own it. If it is for you, I don’t see any shame to admitting doing it. No Honey, my shame is admitting to buying into all those tubes of broke promises and wasted dreams. Ain’t nobody got time for that. As the cool kids say…. YOLO Bitch…

So, tell me in the comments: Would you ever, or have you ever gotten Botox? Who’s your aging with grace role model? Mine is Sandra Bullock, she’s kinda hot in that ‘cute girl next door way’. And totally fucking hilarious.


  1. I am just 28 so there has been no Botox. I honestly do not know if I would be ruling it out, we’ll see down the road.

  2. So, I’m not quite ready for botox yet. I probably need a few more years on me. But what an informative experience to follow you through the process and see exactly how it is done!

  3. Your one tough cookie, man that looked painful!! You acted like it didn’t even faze you at all, those first few made me kringe lol but I am afraid of needles!

    • Grandma Juice says:

      It’s really not painful at all! Sure, you feel a tiny ‘pinch’ kinda thing. It’s not anything close to an IV or even a regular type of shot. I’m not fond of needles, but… we do what we gotta do LOL

  4. I have a couple of small places I’d love to get Botox, maybe soon.

  5. Melissa Lawler says:

    You are very brave! I can’t wait to see after.

  6. I am definitely going to consider botox in a few years.

    • Grandma Juice says:

      I can’t say it enough… Check out your local doc’s!! Cheaper doesn’t mean worse but more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better either!! I’ve gone to my Dr for the last 3 years now and have had amazing results each time. But I spent a good month checking into who and where 🙂

  7. OMG, girl for the first vlog to pop your cherry, I think this is the most AWESOME way to do it! I have always thought about getting botox b/c I have a line in the middle of my brow from scowling too much ( I was very serious as a child!) You give me courage!

    • Grandma Juice says:

      Thanks Ash!
      That was kind of my point… there’s nothing wrong with doing it! I really don’t know why so many women who clearly do, deny it!! No need for the serious/angry face!! 🙂

  8. My brave brave daughter… can’t believe you let him stick you with all those needles!!!

    • Grandma Juice says:

      It’s not brave mom, it’s total vanity 🙂
      YOU were the 1 who told me ‘It hurts to be beautiful’!! Turns out, not so much. Just kind of ‘crunchy’ sounding!!

  9. I’ve never had botox but if it came to the point where it looked like I needed it, I would get it in a heart beat!

  10. I love how honest you are about this. I would consider botox for sure, if theres something that can make you look/feel better why not!

  11. Mujer- JU SO FONII!! You don’t do Google Hangouts but you videod this?? ; ) BB has not done Botox because gravity has moved all my facial rolls and collected them into various rolls in my midsection. At this time my face is fine. Besides, Babushka is an extremist so it’s a full facelift or nananina. BB2U

    • Grandma Juice says:

      1st – I may be able to do the ‘hangout’ now!! This was good practice… just need enough warning so I’m not ‘nakie’…
      2nd – I’m not ready for a full on face lift, but I’m think my next staring role will be at the Juvederm guy’s office!!!

  12. I’m a wimp. Needles on my face seem a little frightening to me still. I KNOW when I hit 40 I will change my mind 😉

  13. Maybe I’ll consider this when I get older, but that needle looks a bit scary right now!

  14. i’m going to say no thanks…lol

  15. I have been wanting to do this for a while now. It is not cheap and that is what is holding me back. I hate my lines between my brows… and my lines on my forehead. Soon.. 😉

    • Grandma Juice says:

      Just remember ‘expensive’ doesn’t mean ‘good’… and ‘cheap’ doesn’t mean ‘bad’. Just research the Dr’s in your area well. A good ‘average’ cost is about $10 per unit. What you saw me get is 50 units…

  16. I am starting to see fine lines. Ack. Not fun. I’m not ready for Botox though yet. It kinda freaks me out, plus I can’t afford it right now.

  17. AH!!! I want to try Botox so bad, but I am freaked out. Did you feel dizzy or anything? My one friend said she felt lightheaded after… not sure if that was related.

    • Grandma Juice says:

      No… not dizzy at all!! Some people do say they have a slight headache for a few hours after. Nothing horrible but I have heard that can happen. It’s really not at all painful. I suppose if you have a fear of needles or something it can be uncomfortable but honestly, 0 ‘pain’… the tiny ‘crunch’ sound when a itty bitty needle breaks skin make skeeve people out a bit. Meh.. totally worth it to me LOL

  18. You know, if you would have asked me even a year ago, I would have said no way. Now, after the past year with the kids, and how much they aged me, I would think about.

  19. Ouch!!! It looks so painful! I have a friend that gets botox for perspiration issues. I have been considering it for that purpose.

  20. I have a friend with a son that wouldn’t be able to walk today without the miracle of Botox! He has to have regular injections for high muscle tone in his legs but when he was 9 months old the doctors said that he would never walk. A few years after starting treatment and he walks just fine. Yay for Botox!!!

  21. I love that you own this – seriously awesome! Not sure I’m going to go the Botox route, but never say never! Hopefully I won’t have to decide for a while!!

  22. You are so brave, thanks for sharing the live video! Man I am such a whimp.. I just don’t think I could do it!

  23. Yeah, I definitely don’t think I could ever get Botox. Unless it was “for migraines” 😉

  24. So Following up….it’s been about a month, how is the botox treating you?

  25. I don’t know if I could do it! I don’t like needles.
