Default Botox or not to Botox

Im not quite ready for it just yet, welll actually I could do with a bit of ironing out, however I like a few lines. My granny who has been an inspiration to me has got a face like a prune and has done since I can remember and as she says every line has a story and she has some cracking stories. SO do I want to be smooth forheaded unable to show any expression in my face or do I grow old gracefully?

caprice below looks to have been to see the doctor

So would have have a bit of help or full on surgery? and if so what would you have done? No penis extensions please Ethos .

And I am sure we can all remember the bride of Wildenstein; WARNING Not for the feint hearted!

Hmm, depends entirely on the kind of image you want to give people...."I don't care if I look wrinkly,although I know I don't have to"
or
"Yup, I actually AM xx years of age...and yes, I know I don't look like it"...which seems to be the thing to do these days...

If you do go for botox, don't overdo it, a completely smooth forehead and a slack jaw just don't go together.
And having your eyebrows in your hairline...as in full on face lift...IMHO a big NO.

And no matter how much you spend on face cream etc. , nothing beats a bit of botox.
And you feel better when you look in the mirror in the morning.
And I don't think it has to do with insecurity, just with making life a little easier.

No, not necessarily insecure, but possibly a little vain.
And why not use the help that's available?
I am pretty sure our grandmothers would have if it was available then.

Plus "you are what you are " is well and good. But, you don't have to be what you are anymore...you can be what you want. Your choice.

but I'd want to remain what I am... and like it.

I think if you can grow old gracefully, then it's a good thing to do. I'm not sure I'd want to turn heads when I'm 70... unless I could swipe at them with my brolly. Hmm...

No botox for me ... the lines on my face are a map of my life and, anyway, I don't have wrinkles - I have laughter lines

not for me, what's the point in having a facing of a 30 year old and a neck of a 50 year old? your hands always give it away anyway

Oh no, not when you are 70, but how about when you are in your 40's - 50's?
And growing old gracefully...why does that have to involve deep wrinkles? I can't see much grace in those.
See, the way I look at it, everything in balance is the thing to do.
But as I said, it all depends on what you think it right for you.
