Should 20-Somethings Be Getting Botox?

Over at The Huffington Post, Adrien Field, a young man in his early 20s, writes about getting Juvederm, an injectable line-filler to improve smile wrinkles—not, he insists, because he feels he’s aging, but rather because he’s genetically predisposed to nasolabial folds. Adrien knows women in their early 20s who have gotten Botox injections and his doctor confirms that it’s not uncommon to see men and women of Field’s age in his office: “It’s very interesting to see how — I’ve been in practice for 15 years — and the people coming in have been getting younger. If someone is in their late 20′s — it would almost be a case where normally I’d never have to do anything for someone that young, but if they happened to have spent time in the sun, if they happen to have very light skin, then it’s beneficial to do minor things: chemical peels, injectables, etc.” Keep reading »

Why I Stopped Getting Botox

Several years ago, I was using Botox pretty regularly. Then, I stopped. Last year, I went back for more of the Botulinum toxin that paralyzes the facial muscles of those looking to be line-free. When it didn’t work, I turned to Dysport, a similar product, which did work. But recently I decided I’m done with all that. Keep reading »

Quotable: Julia Roberts Has No Use For Botox

“It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates. I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”

Julia Roberts, “Eat, Pray, Love” actress and “practicing Hindu,” on Botox and plastic surgery in the new issue of Elle. There’s also this really sweet quote about having three children with her husband, Danny Moder. She says: “The children became the shooting stars of him, of that thing we have. How lucky we are that we love each other so much that we burst into three pieces.” I’m sorry, I can’t help but “aww” at that. [Elle via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

“Glee” Actress Admits To Getting Botox — Even Though She’s Only 18

Later this month, Filipino singer and actress Charice Pempengco will begin filming for “Glee” and she’s not just prepping for her role by memorizing lines. The 18-year-old admits she had Botox to make her “naturally round face” appear more narrow on TV. “All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure,” she told an interviewer. Somebody needs to tell Charice that “Glee” is a singing show, not a beauty contest. Unfortunately, it doesn’t surprise me that an 18-year-old thinks she needs Botox. Sometimes I think women use plastic surgery and injectables like Botox as a crutch even if they don’t “need” it, just because it makes them feel better. [AP] Keep reading »
