The following post is written by our Adams Center Ambassador Tom Kennedy about his first Botox treatment at The Adams Center.
Post Botox Debrief by Tom Kennedy
I had my first treatment with Botox about three weeks ago to my forehead, the area between my eyebrows, and around my eyes. I have to say without ANY exaggeration; I noticed a smoothing of my wrinkles almost overnight-though I know that it takes about two weeks for the full effects to take place.
The treatment was very straight forward and took about 7 minutes. I scheduled my appointment for the morning, and tried to keep my schedule clear for the day, as I did not know what to expect-however that ended up not being the case. It was with a bit of anxiety that I knew I had a full day appointments showing properties afterwards.
Dr. Adams was calming and the injections did not hurt at all. He did a series of injections on the forehead area, then a couple between my eyebrows then about three injections around each eye in an arc. The injections felt like the tiniest of pricks to the skin-if anyone has ever had acupuncture-it feels like that.
Right after the injections, an ice pack was laid over my forehead eye area for a couple of minutes. There was only a tiny bit of blood from one or two of the injection sites. When leaving, it looked like I had a couple of mosquito bites on my forehead-which went away in about 10 minutes, as I was driving to work. I had no bruising whatsoever.
The rest of the day, I met with clients and showed $3,200,000 lakefront home in Lincoln, then a $4,950,000 home on 25 acres in Concord, then a $989,000 3000 sq ft condo in Charlestown. Afterwards, I finished up my office work then took clients to a private party hosted by First Republic Bank to view the new wing of the Gardner Museum. These clients are art collectors themselves and have a home on the North Shore that I have on the market for $8,500,000. My first Botox day closed with a late dinner at the Capitol Grill where we ran into friends and spent the evening talking and having a great time into the early hours of the morning.
The next day, I awoke and looked in the mirror-and I could not exactly describe the change except to say it looked like I had had the most restful-longest sleep of my life and my brow seemed to be smooth. Botox is a miracle drug. I would definitely recommend it and I was pleased to see that for me there was absolutely no down time or interruption to my schedule.
