Women ask me for recommendations on where to go for cosmetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and facialists all the time. And when I say what doctor I go to for Botox, 9 times out of 10 they say to me, “You get Botox? But you don’t need Botox!”

And I say: “Yes, exactly. That’s why I get it.”

So many of my friends remain on the fence about Botox, a word that I find being generically used more and more to describe all things injected into the face. My friends are terrified they’ll come out with frozen faces à la Nicole Kidman. And when I say, just try it—but make sure to go to a Charlotte’s Book Provider, of course—the most common fear I hear is: “but my husband will kill me.”

So many of my friend’s husbands have mandated an injectable free policy, imploring their wives to stay away from 'Botox' (using it as a blanket term for all injectables). Uneducated in the arena of cosmetic dermatology, they label all frozen and puffy faces the result of this thing called “Botox,” regardless of what filler or injectable it may be from. 

But what they don’t know is that many of the ageless beautiful women they see are actually getting Botox (the real Botox). They’re just getting it more expertly and conservatively, and by doctors who are not only technically “certified,” but who also have experience… and most importantly, a sense of artistry.
