Mom Monica Bielanko ponders whether she should get Botox or not, even though she used to be so against it. Can you relate? #shesaidPosted by mom.me on Thursday, June 11, 2015

ummmmmm...no?.................why would she?
Don't overthink it or worry about the larger implications. Botox done right is no big deal and doesn't change your face in a substantial way at all. It just makes you look well-rested (and erases Bitchy Resting Face, if you have it). Try it. If you write about it, you should be able to possibly claim it as a business expense.
Not now, for you anyway. Nothing against very well-placed botox in small quantities, but looking as you do, a young mid-30's, it will age you rather than make you look better. It's a peculiar thing, but younger women who use it look... older and frozen. Look at Megan whatshername, the one hot dark haired girl married to Brian Austin Green, and there are a lot of other examples. You have a lovely face, it's not unduly lined, you don't have terrible frown lines (I know one lady, not yet 40, who has a deep, angry vertical frown from being short-sighted. Botox has stopped her from looking permanently sour and furious), but you don't need it. Maybe in 5 years, not now.
i am 38 and also trying hard to walk down the path of acceptance. it is not easy. Thanks for doing this!
im 40, and had no clue others my age are considering it, let alone doing it. i feel waaay too young to even think about aging, yet i know i won't mess with mother nature when i start to think about it. im too cheap for botox anyway. ;)
I'm with you on never doing it. Although it isn't something I can afford anyway, I agree that aging naturally is the right thing for me. Women with altered faces look odd to me. I'm 50 so I think right at the brink of feeling old. And, like you I do dye my gray hair, but that is not a forever decision. I very well might stop doing that when my gray is more pronounced.
Interesting topic - it is strange what becomes the norm.
I love Botox! Also got a little Restalyn to fill in those deep laugh lines, and I am about to turn 37. As long as I can afford it, I am gonna do it! But chemincal peels, well they plain old hurt! lol I will defy the act of growing old as long as possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you like your lines (which are not visible, in this video anyway) then don't get it! I get it b/c I DON'T like lines and crows feet on my face. But I get what you are saying about society etc. The truth is that Botox is kind of a magic bullet, if there ever was one. Hard to ignore how effective it is!
