I've been getting Botox for 17 years… but there are some things they never tell you, like it can stop you talking | The Sun

YOU spot the first fine lines and wrinkles and immediately think to yourself – Botox.

But as sought-after as this treatment is, how much do we really know about Botox? Well, one self-confessed ''veteran'' took to TikTok to share the things injectors don't usually mention.

Kelly LaVallie (@kelly_lavallie), believed to be from the US, claimed to have been getting Botox injected in her face for almost two decades – she first for it done around 17 years ago.

And since then, the beauty lover has come to realise a few things, one of them being speech impairment.

''There are a couple of pitfalls to be aware of – and I'm experiencing a couple of them.''

Sharing her ''Botox public announcement'', Kelly started off by informing viewers about how the treatment's affected her ability to speak.

After getting some in her upper lip, the woman said she's ''really having to think about'' forming different words, as her lip is not as flexible.

''My husband is grateful that it’s slowed my talking,'' she chuckled.

This, in turn, has also changed the way she eats – although she does enjoy the more fuller pout.

To make her forehead more smooth and give her brows a lift, Kelly's also had Botox injected in the top section of her face.

But some days, she claimed in her video, the Botox would make her eyebrows go unnaturally high, creating a ''sparky'' appearance.

''I don't hate it. But my injector lady says it's a bad look.

''It's a real fine balance, peeps,'' Kelly added in the end.

Posted less than 24 hours ago, the clip has already been viewed close to 300k times, and many flocked to comments to thank Kelly for being so open and honest.

''I love that you chat about this! thank you,'' one woman said.

Someone else recommended: ''Tip for the lip. Use the back of the electric toothbrush on the lips it will lessen the tightness of the Botox & give more movement for speech.''

''Omg, I have my appt tomorrow- thanks for the heads up,'' a third added.

''I love the effects but I’ve found that I’m getting migraines after treatment which is a real bummer,'' a fellow beauty lover shared their experience.

Kelly is not the first one to be open about getting Botox and what it's done to her face – earlier this year, one woman was left with a droopy eye.

Tatiana Rezende, from the US, shared the mortifying results on her social media, with the video racking up almost 370,000 views.

The avid photographer told followers how the doctor had injected the treatment in the wrong spot, an error that not only left Tatiana with a droopy left eye but also an enlarged right eye, making for a very uneven look.

''I called my primarily doctor because I was very scared, it had never happened to me before.''

After a consultation with the expert, she was prescribed medication, which she claimed she had been taking for almost a week.

Although it appeared that there were little to no improvements, she promised she would keep following the doctor's recommendations.

''I just want to raise awareness – before you go to a place and get your Botox done, try to research the place and who the injector is.

''There is nothing I can do – just wait,'' Tatiana told her 66,300 thousand followers.

Viewers were quick to show their support to the woman, with one writing: ''I wish you a quick recovery.''

''I’m so sorry, hope your eyes get better,'' a second added.

Despite the largely supportive comment section, there were also a few critical users, like this one who thought of Botox as an ''unnecessary procedure''.

''I wouldn’t let anyone inject anything close to my eyes.''

Someone else agreed, saying: ''Doctors are humans too, they make mistakes sometimes.

''No medical procedure is 100% safe.''

Another person tried to encourage others to love their natural beauty: ''this is why you should accept the way you are and live with it.''

It appeared that one of the viewers had been left particularly traumatised after watching the clip: ''I just canceled my appt after seeing this…I am glad you're ok… you're so strong for the video.''
