Dr. 90210 Recap – EPISODE 2
EPISODE 2 | Facing Your Fears
Most of us have that one feature we’d like to tweak. For Mikki, that was her smile.
“In middle school, I was known as the girl who was pretty before she smiled.” This fueled a deep insecurity for years to come––following Mikki into her adulthood. “I stopped talking to people, I stopped socializing ‘cause… that’s what everyone sees when I talk; so might as well not talk,” she told the camera with a shrug.
Mikki is a beautiful and accomplished makeup artist who has built her own successful business with plans to potentially start her own YouTube channel. But her smile was the one thing holding her back from taking that next step in her career.
Little did Mikki know, the solution was nonsurgical and practically painless! Dr. Lee’s treatment plan included BOTOX injections to relax the muscles above the lip from curling up as she smiled. Dr. Lee also administered filler to give the upper lip more volume and to further cover the gumline gap.
Only moments after the injections were administered, Mikki commented, “I’m happy with [the results] already!”
“Oh, you will be ecstatic then! This is only a little bit of volume,” Dr. Lee responded. “Once the BOTOX kicks in, it’s going to improve by 90%.” BOTOX typically kicks in after 2 weeks.
At 3 weeks, Mikki was able to overcome her lifelong insecurity and finally feel confident in her beautiful smile.
“Nothing’s holding me back now!” Mikki exclaimed.
