A Botox Problem?

I had botox on my forehead four times with no incidence. Then, approximately one year ago I had boxtox on my forehead and also in my crow's feet. Two days later I had a severe allergic reaction to something? The only thing that was different was the botox. I would like to try botox again, but am afraid of having a worse reaction. I would like to know what you thnk about this and if you have any suggestions. Thank you. Laura O.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
