Reference: Botox Could Ease Drooling Troubles by
Forget wrinkles. Botox could bring temporary relief for those who struggle with drooling, a new study suggests.
One of my dear friends (she’s the same age as me, but looks considerably more youthful- b^%&h!) has been trying to sell me on the benefits of Botox for some time. “Come on, Gene, let’s get treatments together. It will change our lives.”
I’m just not buying.
I’m the first to admit that I could use some treatments (i.e., those of the shock nature) but this one, which promises to remove my laugh lines, crow’s feet, and permanent scowl, just isn’t high on my list of priorities.
I like my laugh lines just fine. I’ve spent 44 years being a goofball and my laugh lines are proof. And I’m not sure I like the idea of not being able to scowl when I want to. I’m a mother; scowling is a big part of what I do everyday.
Besides, these are very trying economic times and I can’t be throwing money away on superficial things like Botox; I have more important things to focus on — like saving for my retirement or that cellulite chamber I’ve had my eye on.
But though Botox might not be for me, I’m happy to hear that it may possibly be put to good use and help those with disabilities. In fact, just reading about it brought tears to my crow’s feet.
How do you feel about Botox?
