The Latest LOST IN SUBURBIA column: Free the Forehead

“What did you do to your face?” my husband asked as he peered at me from the bathroom doorway.

I tried to look nonchalant. It was actually pretty easy to look nonchalant because my eyebrows were locked in a nonchalant position.

“I don’t know what you mean,” I shrugged.

He raised his eyebrows. I tried to raise mine back. No luck.

“You did something. You look different,” he said peering some more.

“Younger?” I asked hopefully.

“Noooo … .”

“Smoother?” I prompted.

“Noooo … .”

“Frozen?” I offered reluctantly.

“YES!” he shouted. I nodded. There was no denying it. I had Frozen Forehead…

  1. So, not a good idea to try to remove the permanent 11 that exists BETWEEN my eyebrows? Noted. 😉

    • I have a weird sideways 11 which actually looks like an = sign… also not particularly attractive. It did lessen when I got the Botox, but then again, so did every expression I could make with my face. I don’t know – someone women swear by it, but you can’t tell if they are happy about the results because they look the same whether they are happy or sad! LOL!

  2. I burst out laughing at the Vulcan comment – every time I have mine done I tell the doctor ‘I still want to be able to do this..’ and lift one eyebrow. I spent my O’level exams learning that move, I’m determined to keep it (if not my frown lines). Thanks to some light handed needle jabbers, it’s never disappeared yet.

    • You are going to have to tell me how you were able to maintain that because I was not and I missed doing that whenever I caught one of my kids lying!!

      • I literally only have the frown lines between my brows treated in my forehead, he’s not allowed to touch anything else. Without attempting major self promotion (oh all right then) it’s actually the subject of my latest post – how to do botox and fillers without panic. The only problem is, I spend so much time saying ‘look I can still raise my eyebrow’ I’m now developing a massive line just off to one side of it!
