A MOTHER has revealed the disastrous experience she had with Botox, saying the injections made her look “creepy”.
Stephanie uploaded videos to her TikTok account momtimes6, where she showed a variety of before and after photos of the ordeal.
“Tell me your face does not pair well with Botox without telling me your face does not pair well with Botox,” she said in one video.
In the clip, you can see the stark difference in her face before and after she received the injections.
While Stephanie admitted one of the after photos was exaggerated, she said her face was still frozen.
“Some of you said it was a bad angle, obviously I was trying to be a bit funny,” she said in a second video.
“I did this two years ago and my friend did it. She is my dentist and they’re supposed to know all of the muscles in the face so they know where to inject but she just put too much in.”
The mother-of-six said she was unhappy with the results, as she said she looked unrecognisable.
“My expressions are with my eyebrows and I was getting lines so I wanted to stop that but I realised I did not like it when my eyebrows do not move whatsoever,” she explained.
People were quick to flock to the comments to share their opinions and advice.
“Go to someone who knows what they’re doing,” one person said.
“Wrong placement, injector dependent for sure,” said another.
“Bestie never go to a dentist, RN or an aesthetician for injectables, only dermatologists/plastic surgeons for the best results,” a different commenter suggested.

A fourth person added: “That’s the ‘Jack Nicholson’. I always tell my doc to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
We spoke to Rupesh Shah of London Lip Clinic to explain what exactly went wrong.
“Botox injections use a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent muscles from moving. This toxin is formed by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning,” he said.
“It’s not just used for cosmetic treatments, as it’s been found to combat several conditions like eye twitching and muscles contractures. So, what
went wrong in these videos?
C”ontrary to popular belief, Botox doesn’t freeze the face but rather paralyzes the nerves that allow your muscles to move. It’s my opinion in this video that the woman was injected with too much Botox over one sitting.
“As for not being able to ‘take’ Botox, it’s another myth that Botox works with all wrinkles – it doesn’t, and some heavy-set wrinkles are permanent.”
He said if you’re after a more natural look, you should consider a procedure called Baby Botox.
Elsewhere in Botox related stories, I got $20 lip Botox to stop fine lines, now I can’t drink through a straw, I look weird when I eat and I can’t whistle.
