I was busting your stones, pal. A friend's mom has gotten it, she was smoking before, and still smoking now! I don't know of any gents that have it...sorry.

If this is a serious question, then, it works for the correct indications ie dynamic wrinkles particularly of the upper face. It is only temporary however.

do you think people notice that you've had botox done or is it subtle enough that you just look a little better?

I heard that if it's done right it's not obvious. I'm also thinking about Botox. Any helpful advice?

i heard that you got to go to the right place too- that it can be messed up if done wrong. thats really the only good advice i've gotten. i'm looking at some of the alternatives too. i've tried creams and stuff - didn't really do that much. heard of anything else that works?

i don't know about that $10 place, sounds sketchy - how did it turn out?

The trend is for 'less is more'. Early treatments used higher doses that flattened out with muscle paralysis which led to a mask like facies. Yes, going to an experienced but also updated practitioner is important. Some are using very dilute superficial injections for a skin rejuvenation effect.
