Is this Botox info true?

Hello Dr Irwin, I have booked an appointment to have Botox injected into my forehead for the first time. When I spoke to the Doctor she said that there was a 20% chance of drooping of my eyes if I didn't get another injection between my eyes also. Is this true? Andrea

Wow – maybe this was a misunderstanding? ? It’s hard to know if that’ s what she really meant. A Botox injection between your eyes won’t droop your eyelids.  And as for droopy eyelids, most experienced practices – ours included – run less than 1% on this.  It might be good to call and ask for clarification on this one.

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?!
