Season 1 Episode 104
Aired on 08/01/2015 | CC tv-14
During the summer of 2012, Evelyn and her then-husband got into a domestic dispute, which ended with him head-butting her in the face. The impact split open her forehead, resulting in stitches and a lasting scar. Days later, Evelyn filed for divorce.

For almost three years, Evelyn has lived with this scar, a physical reminder of the incident. Now, with her daughter by her side, Evelyn goes to see a dermatologist to have it removed. "It's very emotional for me to get rid of this scar because I just feel like it's the last part of this horrible chapter in my life," she says. "I feel like it's been a constant reminder every day, and it's officially going to be done and over with."

Before the doctor lasers the scar, he fills it in with a shot of Botox, which Evelyn says is her first. "Even though I live in Los Angeles, I am a Botox virgin," she says. "I'm thinking, 'What is this going to look like?' According to Dr. Lancer, I'm never going to look back."

Finally, it's the moment of truth. Watch as Evelyn sees the final results for the first time.
