Stopping the Clock
I’ve always been pretty low-maintenance when it comes to beauty regimens, preferring the most natural route whenever possible. I’ve also never thought much about Botox and dermal fillers until lately when a couple of lines decided to take up permanent residence on my forehead. While the occasional furrowed brow isn’t necessarily cause for concern, a permanently furrowed one most definitely is in my book. That’s why I jumped at the chance to pay a visit to Mitchell Chasen, M.D., a top cosmetic laser surgeon at Reflections Center for Skin & Body (Livingston, NJ; Martinsville, NJ, New York City), as well as an authority on various anti-aging treatments. When he offered me the chance to slow my own aging clock with a bit of Botox, I couldn’t resist. And I must confess, I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. It’s certainly a relief to stop stressing about those deepening worry lines, if only temporarily.
